Indeed, reminds of those two wonderful american fans from Genshiken, Sue & Angela.

Speaking of Hiyori, i wonder if she knows Konata~

I was sorta disappointed when I found out that author suddenly stopped working on it awhile ago, I thought it was just slow translation, but now I just noticed recently that she started releasing new chapters again; I hope it'll get translated soon so I can buy it over here.
Now if she can just start working on D.N. Angel again.
Now that I think about it, Sugisaki rarely completes her work, I'm still waiting for DN Angel to conclude. I pity poor Tsukasa-chan that she might never be able to see the ending of Lagoon Engine ever.


Kona-chan complains about news coverages getting in the way of anime broadcasts, yet as a hard-core, surely she must have heard of the "Legend of TV Tokyo"?

I remember seeing this blog that lists the number of times that TV Tokyo has ignored whatever breaking news there is and continued with its anime broadcasts.

They even got screenshots of various channels of the time when the news was being broadcast, from negotiations with North Korea, Shinzo Abe becoming new Prime Minister, and even the recent election. All the other channels were shown covering the related news, except one channel: TV Tokyo.

This "legend" has become so infamous that it even got parodied in Keroro Gunso, with Keroro not aware of some news related to another character since he was watching anime on TV Tokyo. LOL

Aieee, another ep of Lucky Star goodness. The younger group of girls are being quite nicely profiled (where L*S will focus if it continues once the 4 Musketeers graduate).

Liked the Nanako-Konata imaginary duel .... I suspect these two will be gaming with each other long after their hair greys.

Misao-san is cast from the same gene pool as some other snaggle girl we love but Misao's voice is batshit insane lovable.

Other people have done the details.. so I'll just say both 17 and 18 are sublime for me.

It's not really (just) we, but I'm being polite and exaggerating a bit. The Japanese won't stare.
Actually, I didn't know anything about the otaku world. It was quite a long time ago, and although I was interested in games/anime at the time, the games I played were on the Famicon and the anime I watched included Doraemon, Sazae-san, Crayon Shin-chan, and this old magical girl show that wasn't Sailor Moon. At least, I think that was the anime I watched back then.

It was an interesting experience, but I don't think I could be considered an otaku at the time.

Then you sounded just like an average Japanese kid then. Everyone watches those... No you weren't an otaku by far. But today, given the fact you watch L*S, you would probably be considered an otaku. If I'm in a JP HS right now, the last thing I would talk about is L*S or anime. Maybe a sports manga... that's it.

Of course it's staged like any good TV show. Pan-Kun is smart, but asking a 3-years old to buy a ticket and ride the train to a specific station is probably impossible. Some ADULTS have problem with it. He was trained to perform all the acts and most likely have little understanding of the acts he's doing, but he really did them by himself when the camera was rolling. He probably did NG like a thousand times before, but that's like any real human actors too. I see it more like Pan-kun acting in his little drama... even if it's all staged, it is still impressive and cute.

There's something about Misao's voice that makes her so amazingly cute...I can't really describe it, but it matches her personality exactly. I remember hearing her "Oi, Hiiragi!" during her first appearance and already thinking her voice was awesome.

Miyuki as a sheep was interesting since she had horns, which is a male thing. If she had been wearing a bell, I would think it was a Nanatsuiro Drops reference.

That can only mean that Miyuki is a seme like Minami... wait, does BL term apply to Yuri as well?

In fact, the self-referencing goes even one step further: Ichiko, carrying the umbrella, was played both in Munto2 and here by Shimizu Kaori (Lain), who happens to be on hand to play Hiyori.

And for another self-reference, that line of Konata's to Kagami during the jiiii.... reading scene that her "face is too close" was said by Sugita Tomokazu to Ono Daisuke during the Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekisou live show. I don't know if it has a history before that, but it may. Perhaps it was a Hirano Aya ad lib.

I too find Misao more and more entertaining. Mizuhara Kaoru is doing a great job with her voice, and visually that may be the best implementation of snaggle-tooth I've ever seen.

Hiyori, too, is a great combo of good animation and a good script. Her ineffectual guilt over seeing her friends in this way was a great touch. And Minami and Yutaka are...just...great together.

The main writer, Machida Douko, is credited with writing both this ep and ep17. And the storyboard is by the old and new directors together: Yamamoto Yutaka and Takemoto Yasuhiro. I don't know whether this means Yamakan is back working on this show, or Takemoto is just finishing an ep Yamakan started before he left. I see from a list of future staff (on 2channel) that neither of the directors appears as director or storyboarder of any future episode.

I was going to wait for the ref list but I'll point this out now... the is actually a line in this episode that actually parodied what Yamakan wrote after he "resigned" from L*S. He is involved in this EP. I think they've kissed and made up.

Misao dresses a bit girlier than I expected, coming off kind of Kagura-esque. Still, there's some strange charm about her that I find utterly cute.

And Hiyori feels like the standout of the secondary four. I just love her conflicted self-adominishing. Her voice seems totally perfect for the character! XD

Fun episode. Loved the SPW spoof(Still have yet to play that series...), More screen time for all the other side characters(Yutaka's starting to grow on me.),and the "3-second rule" scene.

But one simple quote in this episode really stood out for me, and it was when Konata was saying how she'll make her batteries in her cellphone last twice as long, and the final thought from Kagami in that scene was "She's one of those people who spend so much money of their hobbies, but are stingy when it comes to everything else."

That quote was funny but at the same time I felt a little inner punch to my heart for a bit because of the simple fact that it pretty much describes me as well.
