i dunno if anyone noticed.. but there was a Churuya-san reference in there!

When Kagamin was talking about what career options Konata would want, the Konata was saying something about Megas and nyoro~n. I'm guessing it's about smoked cheese. around 15:47 i think?

Loved that part too. Poor Dororo and Kururu they get no love they weren't in it though it's not like they get any love in Keroro Gunso either.

Awwwwwwwwww! I don't wanna have to blog it tomorrow....too lazy. . Oh well duty calls I guess. I'm going to be so busy this week I don't even know how I'm going to fit everything in. What ever happened to me time

What's great is that I can pull about a hundred ideas on what to do with the Keroro and Yu-Gi-Oh things, thank god for that.

About this ending: To me the endings kind of eh, on the one hand it's refreshing to have a guy "sing" a them for this show, in fact I think this is a first for this studio actually, but on the other hand I never really cared about the Taniguchi thing all that much, nor got why it became a meme. It's clearly something that really only works if your a hard hardcore fan of Haruhi and get the reference. All in all to me it's a monotony breaker, certainly not the all time best ending I've ever seen in my life, far from it actually, but the kind that's so sudden and unexpected that you don't really know what to think until you've sat down and thought about it a lot. The highlight of it was the random warning klaxon that was going off on occasion during it. Oh and Minoru seems like one of those people that's a genuinely fun guy. I could tell he loved doing the thing and that being able to provide good fanservice brought him a lot of pleasure.

I wonder if it's true that there'll be a figure made for Shiraishi. I haven't seen anyone mention it in this thread. :O (Although I guess the ED stands out a lot more... XD)

Horrible ED.

And I still refuse to believe Sebastian was first in the popularity poll.


Too bad about Kagami's chocolates.

Oh yeah well, you gotta have an Uguu or something Kanon or Haruhi related or the episode doesn't count.

I'm also not sure if people find the opening bizarre like me or funny like ????, but like I said odds of liking it seem to increase depending on whether you are a Haruhi fan and then from there ones enjoyment of it increases depending on how hardcore a fan they were. So if you were all upons the series it's like , and if you were a casual fan it's like , but if you were never a fan it'll probably be like or even . So enjoyment is probably arranged across a spectrum and by it's very nature it is going to split the viewership on their perception of it, hopefully without much blooshed....hahahahaha........

I'm more of a into a overall when it comes to this ending.

Not a bad episode, actually.

I felt the in-jokes this time around, compared to last episode, were more subtle and is fairly unnoticeable even if one didn't understood them.

1: The adding of Kona-chan's "Uguu~" does not affect the overall gag adapted from the original koma.

2: I think it's pretty much certain that Anime Tenchou has been made an unofficial regular and running gag of the show. Apart from that, the fact that his assistants today are voiced by Watanabe Kumiko (Keroro), Kozakura Etsuko (Tamama) and Nakata Joji (Giroro) does not deviate from the main joke that Anime Tenchou is trying in vain to get Kona-chan to buy some stuff from his store.

Unlike last episode where Seki Tomokazu and Sugita Tomokazu parodied their own characters, the main gripe was that Kona-chan and co were left out of the joke. This time Kona-chan is part of the gag/sketch, so you could say it's an improvement.

Although I acknowledge the ED and Keroro-esque preview may have put some people off and provide even more ammo to those anti-Kyo-Ani-ists.

In terms of the main story itself, it's about time we get to see the new characters in Yui-nee's little sister Yutaka and her friend Minami make their appearance next week.

When Yutaka and Minami enrolls come the new school term, Kona-chan, Miyuki and the twins would be in their third year. Already we have gone through one year in the Lucky Star's timeline. That means there's only one more year left before they all graduate.

I personally felt Yoshimizu should've arranged for Yutaka and the younger ones to enter in Kona-chan's second year, so there'll be "two more years" worth of story material instead of just "one more year". That's what Azumanga Daioh did, chronicling the adventures of the characters' high school life, from their first year all the way to their third year.

Once again, Tsundere Kagami-sama FTW!

Edit: I forgot to add, LOL at Shiraishi offering chocolates to his, ahem, buddy. Wonder what he meant by "everyone has a first time"?

[a.f.k.] translated it as "badminton", but even the least observant can tell that Konata wasn't talking about badminton as we know it. What IS that ball game they play at New Year's?
It is basically badminton. It also goes by the name of Japanese Badminton. Wikipedia Link

All I can say is FINALLY! I've been waiting for the 20 foot tall loli shadow in Konata's description to make her appearance. I hope she's as amusing as I imagine her to be. I imagine her showering Big Sis Konata with adoration non stop, pratfalling, running around and then remembering she's supposed to be sick and getting all swirly eyed and *Faint*. I don't know what to expect of Minami though other than Yuki clone. That's all I'm getting from her picture and the choice of VA only strengthens this theory.

I won't call it that; the game was around before badminton. Such a gaijin-centric term.

It is true that almost no one plays it anymore, since it's usually for girls and they usually have to dress formally in New Years. It's quite difficult to be very sporty in a formal kimono, and if you loose you get your face painted. there's no room in Japanese street anymore for these games. Only in the country side will you still find these traditions.

Now that English sub is out I can post some impressions... as usual I'd like to comment on the cultural stuff, rather than the otaku references most people here will eventually get.

That Husky must have some back story. I searched and searched and I can't find a site telling me the story on the dawg. Is it a seiyuu's pet or a KyoAni mascot? It's already a strange episode...

About Nana-sensei's comments... Japanese schools are only mandatory for 9 years; there's no rule where you must goto High School. Thus a school can and will kick you out based on grades, and you just won't have to school to go anymore unless you goto a crappy school or wait and take the transfer exam to another good school. Usually your life is basically ruined if you get kicked out of a good school like theirs. It's not a funny joke to most high schoolers. 3 more month refer to the Japanese school year, which ends in March/April time frame.

L*S really went hard core into Japanese culture.... mentioning things like HyakuNinIsshu, a card game based on 100 famous poems traced back to the Kamakura Era. It was being pushed as a New Year game back in Edo times to push literacy to the masses. Poems were written in short forms on cards and you have to pick it out as you hear someone recite the first part. A very high brow game for girls. A trivia... You all should thank HyakuNinIssu when you play your DS... because Nintendo got their start selling HyakuNinsshu cards.

It seemed that Miyuki has done everything under the sun. I'm thinking her family is part of the biggest Yakuza family in Japan (I guess that would be the Yamaguchi-gomi) and she's groomed to take over Japan's underworld. That's why she knows everything. That's why we have "Sailor fuku and Machine Gun" as an ED. She's the Yakuza!!!

Kagami asks - What is "腹笑い" (Hukuwarai), I believe it's a New Years game where you take a face and you scatter its features and then put them back on the face with your eyes covered to result in a silly face. Then all the kids laugh... something like that. It's funny she said "she's more Japanese than I am!?" She say that because she's a friggin miko. There are not a lot of people more Japanese than a Shinto Family.

The Card Battle was fun, but there's even deeper reference that I just have to dig up. "Semimaru" card Kona played was a real person. He's a famous biwa (Japanese lute) teacher back in the 800A.D. In the Fujiwara Era. He's also a Buddhist Master, that's why he's bald, and Kona uses his "shining attack" due to his baling head. He does have a poem (#10) in the HyakuNinsshu card collection. Talk about obscure cultural reference. No idea what the "pretty girl labu labu attack" was about though.

Omochi is good... it's okay Kagami, I forgive you. No one can resist New Year Mochi... The fresh Japanese mochi is usually made New Year's day by pounding on sticky rice in your back yard... but that's in the old days. Kona is talking about a fresh pasta making machine. They are quite popular in the US as well, and if you watch the Food Network you have seen a lot of them. And yes, if you don't clean them you get yucky pasta. Yes I did own one. I have a foody wife... but it's so beyond SAD to eat Western food during New Years... poor Kona...

I think Tsukasa is more of a MoeYouso than Miyuki. Kona has bad taste. Miyuki is more creepy than moe. Her first dream shows that she's a power-hungry YaShinKa with evil ambition! Yakuza I tell ya!

First Dream... soooo many Japanese believe in the first dream. This very Japanese tradition... it's not found anywhere else in Asia. Azumanga just touched upon it, but L*S seemed very determined to educate otaku on the Japanese tradition they've forsaken (and to each a thing or two to fansub-watching gajins!)

Why are they girls talking about Adult Ceremony at 17? It's 3 years away for them. Furisoude? Okay "Furisoude" is a special kind of kimono reserved for unmarried women. It has very long sleeves which you can wave, which is what furisoude mean, "waving sleeve". There are 3 types of furisoude, the long one you can only wear during wedding, the medium one for very important occasions such as Adult Ceremony, and short one you wear to parties. Married woman can't wear these, so a furisoude for your wedding and adult ceremony is VERY important to a Japanese woman. I think this is another "things male otaku don't have a slightest clue about" Lucky Star so love to discuss.

Then we have kotatsu talk... it's so sweet Kona and Kona-dad felt asleep playing PS2 together... Kotatsu is not that great.. your hands and feet are warm but your BACK IS FRIGGING COLD!

In-Game marriage is very popular in Asian MMORPGs. Many games are famous for their weddings, and use it to attract players. And the sex of the people getting married is often irrelevant.

I thought Kona hates gaijin... she attacked one without a good reason neh... now she wants to come to gaijin-land... with a erroneous view on valentine's day in the USA. Kona-chan, Miyuki is wrong. Guys may give you chocolate if they want to date you, but you look like jail-bait to the gaijinese so not a single guy will give you candy, save maybe your ESL teacher. And girls don't give candy to everyone like they do in Japan... Japanese girls are way more generous on giving candy to loved ones than the girls here. And what's with this strange notion of small-chested girls' popularity in the West? What kind of American porn has she been watching? Flat chested girls are WAY WAY WAY WAY more popular in Japan. Kona, if you're raised here, they'll probably send you to medical treatment due to your size.

Reference: I think "Abunai Hatsugen Kinshi" is kind of a reference to ARIA's AIKA who love to say "Hazugashii Serifu Kinshi!"? Well, it's kinda close. And I love ARIA, so I hope it is.

I think Kagami and Kona are really a Yuri couple. Kagami was blushing... oh my.... chou kawai... I love me some of that, eh, hmm. nevermind. After that scene where Kagami-sama gave the choco to the faceless boy, I thought the next scene should be Kona going all Hotoko no Ken on that boy's ass.... wuwuwuwu... I want Kagamin's chocolate...

Coffee talk about "test"... Japanese college entrance exams are college specific. Meaning, if you want to goto a certain U like Todai, you have to take a Todai test, and only to a certain major of your choice. So basically every HS senior has to know exact what he or she want for a career WHEN they're a junior so they can prepare. Many opt just go start working instead.

I love Animate Tenchou... he's so bad-ass. Densetsu no Shoujo A.... hahaha... BTW, Shoujo A was the nickname for Akina Nakamori, a famous 80's pop idol. An obscure reference? The seiyuu for the female animate employee are seiyuu for Keroro Gunso I'm sure. I LOVE the "Emperial March"-like music during the Shoujo A operation. One single Star War reference.... is that the first? The Tencho's eye thing... it's from an old anime.. but I don't remember which one... the Tencho just reminded me of Gatchaman though. Dunno why. I'm sure the otaku-sama here and around the web would know. I know you'll be back, Tencho-sama. You will be a winner one day!

The way Akira-sama touches her "drill" is just tooooooooooooooooo eroero...

How did the voting get to be so that Konata is both 3rd and 9th? Write-in vote? But Happy Happy Joy! Shiraishi won! My vote counted! Yay! Y^_^

And the ED... WAWWAwasuremono... ore no wasuremono.... I have tears in my eyes... He's really milking that Haruhi cameo isn't he. But he's the only seiyuu with his own anime character. He owns now.

Boy that was long... but I must say one more thing.. I am SO HAPPY THIS IS NOT THE LAST EPISODE. I really thought L*S is 13 ep deal... but there's more! More obscure Japanese references for me to dig in! More Koshien Baseball to keep track! Yay!
