Hirano sings that in her more natural tone. I wonder will we see a full version of that should she choose to release an album in the future.

KyoAni Trademark Spotted :-

Kagami fanservice in this Ep.

Kaioshin Sama 2007-04-22 11:05

Just to clarify, Sorega Ai Deshou is licensed out by Flight Master. I actually really like the song in Super Robot Wars W. They probably are going to do new songs from now on since I bet people they knew people were going to be chaffing at all the older music.

GHDpro 2007-04-22 11:06

Just finished watching it... another great ep. Apart from the reference in the ED karaoke song, there is also...
Spoiler for anime references in ep 3:
It's too bad my knowledge of Japanese isn't quite good enough to understand everything, but this ep was certainly on par with ep 2 in terms of jokes, IMHO.

MakubeX2 2007-04-22 11:08

Ep 3 is 95% Konata X Kagami. Of course, Kagami suffers most of the recieving end of jokes in this Ep.

PS :- Konata p0wnz Kagami in Quiz and Puzzle Games, surprisingly. But not by cheating......

PSS :- Will we see a full version of God Knows as the ED in the future ? God Knows.

I'd be willing to bet its next episode. Then Lost My Music, Then Hare Hare Yukai, Then Bouken Deshou Deshou, Then the Kanon Theme, Then the Kanon ending, Then the Air ending, Then the Full Metal Panic Second Raid Opening, Then the last episode will probably advertise the Clannad Theme. I'm pretty sure they are done with the old themes from metal hero shows and are just going to advertise the older shows they worked on now. My gut tells me so.

Mind telling me if the Quiz and Puzzle Game is one of those arcade machines with limited questions, or Quiz and Puzzle Game about stuff she digs.

And wait.... since when is fanservice a Kyoto Animation trademark and since when do they really engage in it to a degree that makes them famous for it. I'd have to say they seem to be on the lower end of the fanservice stick when it comes to animation companies. That doesn't say it isn't probably going to probably make my day depending on what it is. Loli(ish?) fanservice Huzzah!

I'm not sure if you could really call that fanservice though... only her shoulders + bra straps are visible...

I am almost can't wait :love:.

That's about as much fanservice as we are liable to get out of Kyoto Animation. Even Haruhi just barely had that cave scene and the bunny suit which never really seemed to show above or below the waistline. I wonder if Key's low ecchi count for games style has rubbed off on their partners style of animation. If there is much fanservice in Fumoffu and Second Raid, which I haven't started yet, I'm willing to bet a fair bit it was in one of the episodes that was written and directed by one of the three or so other companies involved.

Vexx 2007-04-22 11:53

A few new songs in the ED would be okay... but part of the charm of the very old themes Kona sings is:
1) they're obscure to most viewers (otaku win)
2) they're terrible and she sings them so wonderfully terribly

I'm not sure what "trademark KyoAni fanservice" means either..... A bare-shouldered Kagami (bra/straps) is pretty tasteful if thats what she's doing (changing shirts, etc) -- no more than Nayuki doing the same in Kanon. Basically tasteful, in context, and normally what people do: is *that* "Kyoani fanservice"?
I'm beginning to think the term "fan service" has completely lost its original meaning.... at some point the *existence* of the series is fanservice, eh?

There is not much fan service in every episode of FMP:F or FMP TSR, but in certain episodes there is loads of it. In the first five minutes of the FMP TSR OVA for example, we get to see Tessa in underwear and under the shower (and they show about as much as they can without turning FMP into soft-hentai or something)... so KyoAni is definitely not shy of fan service.

But we're getting off-topic here, this thread is about Lucky Star ep 3 :)

Deathkillz 2007-04-22 12:05

boy this is jut one of those series where you cant understand the cracks without the subs =.= so skipping ahead to the end song ~
Spoiler:

looking forward to watching this ;)

Eh, still don't consider the FMP adaptation to be written entirely by Kyoto Animation, but they didn't refuse to animate the scenes so I guess it's true they aren't shy about it. If they were the chief director who is from Kyoto Animation and Shoji Gatoh would have turned it down. As I said I'm willing to bet those certain episodes are the ones written by the other Film Partner companies.

Back on topic. Now what's this scene in the spoiler tag here. I don't see any fanservice or a trademark there. Vexx also mentioned the term losing its original meaning which I agree with. In its original context Fanservice is something that the companies do to please fans and win easy support without having much bearing on the important details of the series (Which in Kyoto Animations case would almost be their Modus Operandi from the get go since they frequently have poll asking what people want them to do next for a series. I find they customize their shows very much to their bases tastes so as to be fan pleasing throughout. It's a no fail strategy really). Anyway for the traditional meaning of fanservice, even something such as the shiny glint on the metal of a mecha that is deliberately made apparent to the audience would qualify as fanservice. Rie Kugimiya's trademark "Urasai" or "Spaz Freak" would also be her doing fan service for her fans. The vast majority of it though has been showing skin so its come to refer to that exclusively these days. I unfortunately haven't seen episode 3 yet so I can't comment on the "fanservice" throughout, but if that spoiler pic is it, I have no idea what they are doing other than showing the back of a characters head.

I know, rather unnecessary, but I love this OP:

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu OP



I dare you not to loop this one :D .

Meh. I prefer the off vocal version in Super Robot Wars W. The singer just gets a bit too nasalish for my tastes in certain parts of the song. I've never been a big fan of any of the songs featured in series Kyoto Animation has animated, they are aimed at a very specific group that doesn't include me. I wish I could upload a clip of the version I'm talking about, but its a DS game.

Once again though a theme song is overshadowing the actual episode which is what this topic is here to discuss. I'd ask if this could possibly be moved to the music discussion forum and discussion pertaining to music might be discussed there exclusively if possible. What do the moderators say?

Kaoru Chujo 2007-04-22 12:52

Okay, I'm hooked. I liked the "Good Job," Konata's face coming closer and closer to Kagami and the viewer, Konata pwning at even a quiz game (questions not shown, but it was Kagami's game and she expected to win), and Aaya's beautiful singing in the ED. I think she'd probably had enough of singling badly and had to do a good one. (She likes Avril, but I like her singing softer songs better than rock.) I expect we'll hear others singing now, since didn't they say at the end of the first episode that Kona-chan grabbed the first three songs? And there isn't the least doubt that this ED will show up in full version on a CD. I'd be shocked if there weren't character CDs for this show.
