badger11’s take on anime

Lucky Star Ep 8 & 9


I really hate it when I don’t write down any notes about a show. The remaining little gray cells are over taxed as it is. I still think they should drop the Lucky Channel segment and give us more Miyuki. Spin off the Lucky Channel into it’s own series and give us a behind the scenes with an idol show. Something akin to Extras. That would be fun to see.

Not much to say about these last few episodes other than they’ve really made Tsukasa stand out to me. She’s also had the best facial expressions of the show so far. Watching her dealing with her cell phone in episode 7 was funny. Watching her focus hard on her footing for the hurdle jump and then run the race had me laughing hard. And Konata’s reaction to her when she talked about considering Konata’s chocolate cornet as a dessert. Konata’s reaction shows a real mean streak which was something I unconsciously felt that she had. Yeah sure, Konata’s a free spirit, but show her up in front of other people, well let’s just say that little miss stabby comes out. Then there’s Tsuakasa’s expressions in episode 9 when she tells us that she isn’t having fun. They just brought the humor of the show up to a higher level. And vaulted Tsukasa so far ahead of Konata on my favorites list that there’s no hope for Konata at all. Of course, no one will ever come close to Kagami’s level.

    Everyone is “lucky start this” and “lucky star that.” I had to start watching it again.

    Second round, start!

    BTW, I’m working on a moe metric. Yellow ribbons are like +5.

    Yes, yield to the dark power of Lucky Star XD I know that this one isn’t for everyone because it is dialog heavy, but it works for me.

    What are twin tails worth?

    I liked Episode 8, 9 was okay, but 8 had the athletics festival which was just too funny that it was the only episode I ever blogged.

    I agree that they need to do away with the Lucky Channel. It was funny for the first few times, but it’s not anymore and it needlessly shortens Lucky Star. Have you seen 10 yet? It’s up there with 8. It’s got a really great action segment when Konata and Kagami go into an anime store.

    Savta-tan, I’m surprised they took it this long, but it was great to the poster and Asahina

    Otaku, I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve seen some screen caps from other blogs and it looks like a fun segment to watch

    Hey Zenical, thanks for stopping by. Konata isn’t bad, but I do prefer Kagami :)

    lol I like kagami too. but the episodes that show Kagami being teased at by Konata makes Konata stand out to me more xD

    Konata’s nickname scene in ep 10 was funny enough

    about Konata’s “mean streak” thing–remember, she thought it, she didnt actually say it out loud (tons of people think things theyd never actually say)

    Konata’s my favorite, far ahead of everyone; Tsukasa second, Kagami third
