A great high school anime
21 June 2011 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

Lucky Star is a really fun series although if you aren't familiar with certain other series and anime terminology you might be left rather confused at many points during the show. Konata is obsessed with anime and manga and often talks about it; the most frequently mentioned series is 'The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya'; she even dresses up as characters from that series more than once so if you can I'd recommend watched at least a few episodes so you'll get the references! The series follows the lives of Konata and her friends Kagami, Tsukasa and Miyuki; four high school girls doing the sort of things people that age might be expected to do; school work, playing computer games and going to the shops; this might sound rather boring but the way it is done is hilarious. There is little in the way of ongoing story; we see them talking about a subject for a few minutes then we see them doing something else; this isn't surprising given that it is based on a four panel manga. At the end of each episode there is an amusing segment called 'Lucky Channel' where two presenters start talking about the show but soon end up bickering.

The animation style might lead the viewer to think that the characters are much younger than they are meant to be; they are all much shorter than one would expect the characters to be... it doesn't take any time to get used to the style though; I thought it was rather cute. The four central characters were a lot of fun as were the secondary characters whose roles increased in later episodes. While the series has a '15' certificate here in the UK there is little to offend in the vast majority of episodes although it is suggested that Konata's father has a Lolita complex and the girls briefly discuss breast size once or twice; these things are done in an amusing rather than sleazy way though. I'm not sure that I'd recommend this as an introduction to the world of anime but if you've seen a few series and like shows such as 'Haruhi Suzumiya' and 'Azumanga Daioh' then this is a must see.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
