Lucky Star!

http://youtu.be/su4wGRhujnM




Lucky Star is a slice of life anime about an otaku(anime nerd) high school girl and her friends.  This show is just hilarious.  The main character is a fan of the anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and is also voiced by the same actress as Haruhi Suzimiya! There are also a few episodes that deal with the goings on of amateur manga artists and is rather informative.  I'm wondering how I should review this as its rather difficult because each episode is random as can be, which is part of the charm of these slice of life animes.  Some have a small over all story arch but this one doesn't.  Its really just a crescendo of randomness and adding of characters climaxing in the vid I posted above.  Also to note is that if you don't watch much anime and only know it from kid stuff pokemon, digimona, and the ultra violent, overly sexed, gratuitous pantie shots, mech animes ect. . . You'll be surprised by this.  The characters are going for the kawaii (cute) factor instead of sexy, and the plots besides those having to do with anime, manga, and dating sim games is relatively sex free.  Also an odd thing would be the lack of boyfriends or boy crazy high school girls in Lucky Star which is odd coming from American teen programming which is pretty much about nothing but relationships.  If you're interested in something fun and light hearted check out Lucky Star.  That song in the vid is just insanely addictive.  Just listen to the bass line to it.  Its really, really good. And be prepared for ultra cuteness galore.  The Japanese are the best and being cute!

  4. Hey if we ain't sexy, we gotta work with what we got :P

    Of course, there's not many of us that actually believe we're sexy. Base insecurities, blah blah blah.
