Which isn't to be mistaken for meaning Lucky Star doesn't pile on the Ecchi fanservice every now and then (Episode 6 with the naked hot springs, Episode 7 with Konata fondling Kagami and all the jokes surrounding Konata's father being a pedophile). The way I see it, Panty Shot's are the most basic form of ecchi fanservice and Lucky Star has adopted a "Go Big or Go home" philosophy.

That being said, I think a number of shows from hear on out are going to be going beyond the simple panty shot for a more innuendo and in your face style of ecchi fanservice. We've all grown too accustomed to expecting Panty Shots and so I think writers across the board in Japan are going to flexing their creative (and dirty thinking) muscle to come up with new ideas to please the sexual appetite of viewers.

Hoping to see more characters soon and the subs. lol Thx AFK
I've been informed by those that care about such things that the cheerleader sequence isn't a 'pantsu shot' .... they're wearing gym bloomers.

So far I think Gurren-Lagann is winning the skin and scenery awards for the season, leaving the current comedy and romances way in the dust in that sort of category.

Now lets take this time, to imagine Lucky Star by Gainax --- plenty of bounce.

Oh...gym bloomers...to bad. So it's like Sakura's(StreetFighter Alpha series). Well I thought I'd see some Hinata(Rival Schools) panty shots from Kona-chan this ep, but no...waiting for the subs then time to rate! XD

Making Konata Bounce would be a feat worthy of Banpresto.

^ that's the one

Regarding the ep:

Watched the raw and won't comment on anything before sub except the Kuroi sensei part:

It's sad and it's so out of the mood, I have no idea what's the point of that. I guess they can't make her a pure fun character like Yukari sensei? Still, it feels really odd and inconsistent with the overall atomsphere. =/

I know what you mean, but I appreciated it. It added some depth of mood, for me.

It was actually on purpose, you know. I think the objective in those scenes was to get a laugh at poor Nanako

So do I... that's like the first Japanese song I've learned, and I didn't even know it was Japanese. Everyone loved Doraemon and his missing ears.

As for Lucky Star being fanservice... well, if you call discussions about pubic hair and menstral cycle fanservice, then lucky star is right there on top. I don't remember any other anime, adult or other wise, talked about these specific topic before. Poor Kona-chan, hope she gets her period soon.

That discussion about periods is also inaccurate. Any one who lived with Asian family memebers would know - if you're female family members are close as Tsukasa/Kagami, they not only know each other's period intimately but actually SYNCHRONIZE with each other so they all get it at the same time. That one piece is either written by a dude or the girls didn't like to get the secret out.

Girl's High has tons of stuff on these topics.

Firstly, the entire script for that episode was written by a woman.
Secondly, you are really oversimplifying things and it is perfectly plausible.

That's over generalization. It varies from family to family.

Haha, funny how serious people take these comments. Relax, It's just true for everyone I know that is all. Should have added a smiley at the end. and I did say qualify by saying "close".

The way it was set up, If it was meant to be funny and laughed at, the execution cannot be worse. (There are only like Billions of ways they could have made the scene comical)

Plus I highly doubt kyoani is promoting the idea of laughing at 27 year old singles' misery of having to spend their X'mas eve alone. This is totally different from Kona being an otaku.

There's also some assumption here that Konata isn't "ready for play" that is incorrect.
It is being based off of Kagami's hyperbolic speculation in an embarrassed moment -- since Konata is 17, Kagami is just blowing mental smoke...

And the synchronization *trend* is noted for all races.. not just asian and not just family members but anyone in long term close proximity. Though it is a statistical *trend*, not a given.

As far as the seriousness in this episode:
Lucky*Star has some very serious moments amongst the comedy -- it makes the comedy more dear because you know there's some poignancy underneath:
1) Kagami wanting to fit in and not making friends easily
2) Konata not ever quite understanding her ADD nature of impulsiveness and inability to track on schoolwork while hyperfocusing on videogames.
3) Nanako really not having anyone despite being a really wonderful and playful person.
4) Miyuki's long list of little fails underneath her "miss perfect" persona.
5) Tsukasa's fragile self-esteem and over-dependence on her sister

6) etc etc etc

These foibles make the funny more human and more directly hits the target.

Well, that's the thing; the teacher is actually not as much a gag character as the others, because she does have her own worries that are not associated with the younger characters. The fact that she is unattached was part of her character profile...

And are you sure Yukari sensei is purely fun? I guess it seems so because she has her best friend Nyamo to hang out with, while Kuroi is much more lonely and spends her time on MMORPGs. I will need subs to confirm, but it seems Kuroi really is similar to Kagami; they are lonely people. Even when Kuroi had the police-lady around she still doesn't know how to act.

Again, the key here is execution:

Take Vexx's list, I wouldn't call those seriousness but rather more realistic characteristics that can make the audience relate to the characters. When executed properly, they became running gags and/or moe factors that people appreciate.

However, the scene in 11 is poorly done in this regard. Instead of leaving kuroi's loneliness the little gag as it is, they made a big deal out of it and the mood was all pathetic.

Again, I don't mind the "seriousness", it's the way they executed it bothers me. It'd be like actually showing Kona mourns her mother (which I'm sure she does at some point), which doesn't necessarily add any "depth" and would be totally uncalled for.
