Lucky Star Ep 5

It's always the innocent ones
It’s always the innocent looking ones you have to watch out for

I hadn’t really planned to write much more about Lucky Star, but I have to say that this is probably the best episode so far. Not to mention that I’m danger close in becoming a rabid Kagami fanboy. Really. And I’m scared. Kagami’s is pretty much my favorite character out of all of them. Miyuki hasn’t appeared much, so she’s out of contention until we get a lot more of her on a consistent basis. Tsukasa is nice, in a eyes-glazed-over-with-potential-for-menace sort of way. Konata, well, of course she’s likable. But I get the feeling if some guy were to ask her out on a date which happened to fall on the same day of a major game release, well, let’s just say that he’d be standing at their meeting spot with a bouquet of flowers going limp from waiting so long. And somehow, I can’t help but wonder if she’d ever show in up the newspapers about parent leaving their kid in a car as they played video games.

You’re doing it wrong. You’re supposed to say “Luke, I am your father”

So that leaves Kagami. Kyon to Konata’s Haruhi. And this episode did a lot to solidify her position as the #1 Lucky Star girl. From the sisterly picking cotton candy of Tsukasa’s nose to the damn cute reaction when the fish swam away to the damn cute teary-eyed reaction when she caught li’l Goldy. I wouldn’t say she’s moe. In fact, I don’t find anything moe about this show. But I still like it. Now, if y’all excuse, time to go build a shrine to Kagmi-sama.

Ack!She’s so…so…moe. I mean cute.

Yep. She’s a one in a million girl*

    …well, that’s coming from a girl who was obsessed over Balsamic vinegar…

    I liked Lucky*Star. Well, let me rephrase that. I like Lucky*Star. The only problem is that I just don’t have the will to watch Lucky*Star. The first episode was funny. I’m doubtlessly sure that the following episodes got better, but this one just didn’t make the cut when I chose the shows I was going to be following this round.

    I find myself reading post about the show every now and again. If everything holds true to form, I’ll probably watch the whole thing once it’s over.

    The humor seems to become better with each episode. Ep 6 was pretty funny (at least to me), I wonder if that was of the director change.

    Funny that you mentioned “will”. I don’t have the will to watch most shows this season. There are few I’m interested in, but it seems to take somewhat of an effort. yare yare
