I almost cried manly tears when Kanata appeared!

*sniff*

I can't wait to see the subs tomorrow, I may need some buckets or something.

Can we also get a higher rating for this ep specifically?

I think a 100/10 should suffice.

Probably not, if you go around giving extra options to one episode of a single series, you'd have to give them every series, unless it's Shuffle Memories Final Episode with the 11/10 FANSERVICE! option. (sigh...I should probably put in here that I know he's joking, I'm not as stiff as people think I am. Kills half the fun in playing along, that I feel the need to do this though).

I kind of see your point a little though, this episode does certainly seem like it's a standout one, but since most episodes are more or less skewed to the 10 rating right now it's kind of hard to factor this one in as special. I guess it's just kind of going to have to be that way though.

And if you want to see some manly tears, get me in front of a screen and play the ending to Shawshank Redemption. Those are manly tears. Something about people reuniting after a long time always seems to get to me, it's good to see people pick up on old friendships. I just experienced such a thing myself and it was fun.

Heh, I was actually serious when I typed that!

But yeah, I agree that it would be unfair to the other episodes, but if anything, I'm not afraid to call this as the best episode of Lucky Star EVER. Not even Kagamin's false confession can beat this.

But don't hold me on that yet, who knows what'll come up in the final two episodes.

If this episode had shown up before Kanata's vote in Saimoe, it would have been great.

This was like the last ep, an underwhelming first half followed by a stellar 2nd half. The 2nd half really reminded me of a lot of "jun ai" Japanese movies like "Sekai no Chuushin de...," "Ima Ai ni Yukimasu," "Taiyou no Uta," etc.

I think there would be a big demand for a L*S prequel based on Konata's parents if they decided to do one. It would be great if they did it.

ohh GOOD GOD!!! Kanata's ghost!

Saw the raws and seeing Kanata and how Izumi-jiji and her got together moved me. Probably one of the best ep. Ending to be my most fav since it's all about family and baby Kona-chan is too cute FTW. Extremely Great character development with the father daughter combo of the Izumi's. and YEY!!! No Lucky Channel! Thanks to Burning Minoru. Maybe they'll be back in ep.23? Maybe...

As for the others...well they make L*S what L*S is at it's best.

Nice episode, it made me wonder, I know that Konata and her mom don't share the same name, but close to it, but do Japanese people have the custon of name their childs after one of the parents like in the West?

Soft-subs are out!

I cried manly tears today, the background music and that voice of Kanata was just beautiful.

Man, KyoAni definitely deserves a medal or something, they excel in any kind of genre they do. I daresay it, but I believe that this episode can stand up against Byousoku 5CM.

I'm ready to call Lucky Star as the best anime this year. It perfectly balances with comedy and seriousness while still appealing to it's viewers, this really has gotta be the best episode of Lucky Star.

But I wonder, did they explain in the manga or wherever how Kanata died? I know it's possible that the mother can die during child birth while still keeping the baby alive, but obviously, Kanata's alive after child birth. Is it some kind of after effect of pregnancy?

It would be more awesome if Kanata actually lived instead of dying, she's such a dynamic character, I'd love to see how she can keep up with Mr. Lolicon over there.

But yeah, best episode ever, deserves a 9999/10 IMO.

A rather morbid thought that I have gotten from watching this episode and reading the reviews is... what might befall Konata in her future if she is faced with losing her significant other while having mouths to feed?

Just watched it again with subs, absolutely lovely. Having something like this in Lucky Star makes it all the more special --- its just not something i expected, though something Kyoani could do, and did do nicely.

Loved it~

It looks as though its what you've just said, though she died a few days after giving birth to Konata.

Also i must say, i can't wait for the BGM that was used in the 'back flash scene', so beautiful.

The Kanata moments were very touching. It looks like poor Soujirou still misses her.

It's cute how Yui likes spending money on her younger relatives.

It's funny how alike Misao and Konata are.

Akira and Shiraishi are fired? Too bad.

I would not go as far as calling L*S best anime of the year, the anime and 2007 AD being not over yet and we have yet to see how would it stand a second viewing like two years later; and there are Clannad that is around the corner ;p

But I sure got a lot of good moments while watching it.

The emotional moment with Kanata's mom remind us that KyoAni IS the studio that delivered very good drama with Sousuke struggling between his duty and sentiments in Second Raid, and tear-jerking moments in Air and Kanon 2006.

"You fail at life either way." Amazing that an episode can have that and Kanata's sweet visit. It was beautiful. A great episode all around, nothing more needs to be said. Or it's all been said already. Loved the Shirashi medley at the end as well.

As one who have browsed the scanlations then the raws, I was anticipating the appearance of Kanata, especially her visit.
They handled it very well. Unlike the Hiiragi sisters 'drama' or Kagamin's true-fake/fake-true "date", the change in tone did not feel out of place. And way more than cheap sobs and tears as anyone would fear, it gave a deeper insight in Konata's and Sou-kun's relationship as daughter and father.

I was amused by the scenes before, like Misao, I am one who tend to forget what I want to tell to people, shame. Yutaka listening her walkman is "moé", Misao's voice is a pleasure to hear. But, the Kanata's ghostly visit just made me forget those scenes.

Just like I said earlier, it reminds me that it is the KyoAni that left my heart in a mess when Sousuke was the shadow of himself when struck by his inner conflict, when Misuzu met the fate we know, and the sadder portion of Makoto's, Mai's and Shiori's arcs.

KyoAni uses subtlety well. Their handling of flashback prove potent. The studio knows which moments to capture regarding these emotional scenes. Be it in AIR and Kanon... now that Sheba mentioned it, I start to recall all those heart struck moments. I would expect them to deliver poignant depictions when CLANNAD comes.
