Just want to let everyone know that the Lucky*Star manga has been picked up again. XLG, the hardworking people who have been bringing us Highschool of the Dead and REC, have been releasing chapters at one per day.

O_o, theres a change in art style? From where?

Currently reading volume 1 in chinese... 2 and 3 are for sale, just haven't bought them haha...

I liked the way they used really multiple tones and such for the characters, quite detailed, they look really great in black and white.

In any case, it seems like the anime takes everything from the manga and add new details, as well as altering some of the manga's detail to parady other animes... Hmm. Though I was surprised to see that the drill scene originated from the manga.

is the "story" the same as in the anime?

Yes, KyoAni took the manga strips nearly verbatim, and added in the cultural references.

There are a few anime-only sequences that are Lucky*Star specific but they're just nicely done expansions of things inferred in the 4-koma (beach trip, some conversations, etc).

I'm getting kind of curious as to how they'll end the anime --- at their current speed, we'll see the first set of girls graduate at series end.

(o.t. thanks, now I can't pretend I'm just "in my 40s")

I keep watching for a fifth volume from author Kagami but so far none on the horizon. The release dates aren't terribly consistent.

w00t.... w00t, I say.

This and Yotsubato are my favorite manga to read over the last year or two.

O_O.... So soon! I'm glad someone was paying attention ('cause I sure wasn't!)

Too close to my departure date that I have to wait to get it though. It's only a matter of time before I pick L*S back up and psychoanalyze every scene, since I'll finally have every volume, yo. (Yess, GETTO!)

I really dig the volume cover illustration, too.

Maybe this is an stupid questio, but right now, I am too lazy to read the previoud posts X3. The manga isn't licensed, is it? And, of course, it can't be bought in another language other then japanese right? (If both answers are NO!, then a 3rd one: The previous fansub link which was posted here is really translating the manga? I mean, I could find the 12 chapters which are translated in a few more pages, but there are no more...)
Thanks for the help!!

The manga is not licensed in America.
It is available in Japanese (and Chinese translations I think)

There are scanlators working on the manga but all the ones I know about are only a handful of chapters into the first volume.

Very, very beautiful. This manga had better run long...because I won't be able to stand letting it go.

How long do you guys think this would stay? I'm pretty sure Yoshimizu Kagami would keep it going for as long as Comptiq is there, because it's effectively advertisement (and I'm sure a steady income). No offense to him/her, but I don't think Kagami-sensei would move on to bigger projects for one reason or another, because his/her art style just doesn't seem suited for bigger calibers. He/she *does* remain one of the champions of all 4-komas.

There are Chinese releases from a Taiwanese publisher. Unfortunately I only managed to get the first 3 volumes. Hopefully some overzealous Chinese group will rig up something for volume 5 so I can keep it going.

My initial reaction was "pppptthhhh ALREADY!?" but then I saw your location - S'pore. I think Kinokuniya-goers in NA will have to wait a few months, or just buy it online.

Bought my first batch of L*S manga (volumes 1 & 2) from Kinokuniya to commemorate the ending of the anime. Should arrive by this weekend. Can't wait!

PS: Had to buy it online, though. Why don't they have Kinokuniya in Atlanta!? There's like 10 in Cali! (exaggerating, but there's a LOT there)

Only foreign translation for LS right now is Traditional Chinese edition sold in Taiwan and maybe HK. Taiwan has the largest catalog of Japanese manga out side of Japan.

Opps, I just remember a Thai poster mentioned that Thai edition was also just published.
