I can't remember when an anime moved me to tears last time... Such a great episode over 9000/10 for me.

I love Tsukasa's light remote thingy. Somehow has more appeal than a clap-activated one. I only have my trusty stick to rely on.

Technology has come a long way, I bet people back then had a hard time living without the stick...

anyways...

awesome episode esp when Kanata returned
bgm + animation + touching story = best episode ever

I said that the last episode was the best but its possible to have two bests, no? >.<

Lucky Star is getting exponentially better as it comes to a close...

It is sort of illegal for a kid to have the exact same name as his parents (don't ask me why though, I was told so by my Japanese teachers) but apparently it is not so uncommon for a father/mother to give on of his name's kanji to his offspring, so parents and sons tend to have similar, albeit different names (in my teacher's case: Yuji - Kaiji etc.). In konata's and Kanata's case their name is written in same Hiragana so a different rule may apply, or it may be the same custom of family having similar name's. I think kj might be able to give you more info.

On the topic of Lucky Star being anime of the year, I beg to differ a little. There is a difference between being good, being very good, being excellent, being a masterpiece, and being like Seirei no Moribito, if you know what I mean

Sure thing lucky star was alright the funny and slice-of-life way that it was, but with the ghost story KyoAni brought even deep meaning and tears into the story which wasnt really necessary but it defenitly was good and it reminded me of kanon.

Partly agree. But, I have a feeling that if he had never met her, he wouldn't have become lolicon This is another chicken and egg question, though.

amazing episode. this one moved me as well. the background music during the Kanata scenes were sublime. two more episodes to go, if i'm not mistaken, and let's just hope KyoAni delivers a great ending (like Azumanga Daioh) in this kind of genre, but i think they would be hard-pressed to top this one. this episode just came out of nowhere... and struck many of us so well...

What anime is Kagami talking about, the one that she has the lite novel to and that has already been made into an anime three times and being made into a fourth one? Is there really going to be a FMP 4?

I didn't know there was gonna be a fourth one.

I enjoyed the part with Konata's mom. It was so sad too.

Since Konata's 18 years old now and the time in the anime is quite close to ours currently, that means Konata's dad was hooked up to bishoujo games ever since the late 80's? That's strange, since while otaku were present at the time, the concept for bishoujo games formed around 1992. :P

Well, considering that the anime's world is pretty up-to-date with the current releases ( I.e.: Code Geass, FMP! TSR and Sigma ), I'd say they try to create a "As it happens" type of world. It's probably late august/september as of episode 22, but don't quote me on that. That being said, Konata is 18, so she was probably born in 1989/1990 at the latest. As I agree that having bishoujo games at that time was probably unfeasible, I bet eroManga and dojinshi were already all over the place.

And in Episode 22, there's a scene showing Soujirou working on a laptop while Kanata brings him some tea and a few onigiri. Laptops weren't invented at the time too, probably, so I'd guess they are more concerned with giving the viewer a pleasant experience than being always 100% historically correct.

On a side note, I just realized that Soujirou's line: "Hey, Konata, don't die before me, okay?" has a pretty deep and depressing meaning. Of course, he's always lively and rarely seems down, but I guess he himself feels that he was left behind by Kanata. Being an otaku myself, I guess that finding that special person to love means going to the gates of hell for her if you need to. And also there were never any mentions of him having a girlfriend or anything of the sort, which definitely puts Soujirou in a special place inside my "respectable character" list. But I digress, I think.

One thing I have to say is that I would definitely love if they had realized who it was in that picture - not simply another "ghost picture", and hang it along the other treasured family photos. But after KyoAni dealed such a painful blow to the heart of L*S fans, I don't think they'd go that far. I only hope there'll be another scene like this in the future.

I remember having a laptop-like device quite a long time ago which my parents called a ワードプロ. It had a screen and I think one can save a document. That might have existed back then. It also had a printer if I remeber correctly.

I actually enjoyed the first part, the Kanata backstory, the third part, AND the L*C/ED segments. So I ticked this up to a "10" even though the pacing was odd.

Got a lot of luscious Kagami (love those stockings), a passel of Misao cuteness, huggable Nanako goofy, and the outstanding segment with Konata and her parents.

I'm insanely curious as to how they're going to bring the curtain down on this series at the end. I'm assuming it'll be another "day in the life of...." but the details make the difference...

On Soujirou's laptop in the flashback: I had my first laptop in 1986, Data General One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_General-One) --- it was very expensive but I used it in my travels for the project I was on. My next laptop was a Toshiba, orange plasma screen in 1992. So... early 1990s? No problem for laptops.

The same line, or something similar (I don't own a Japanese dubbed version so I can't really check). is a famous quote (if not the most famous) from Maison Ikkoku. Yeah the same, unforgettable, Maison Ikkoku in which the main heroine, Kyoko Otonashi, was voiced by Shimamoto Sumi (so yeah, as others said, the same for Kanata).
Coincidence? I'm thinking too hard? or it's just that after this episode my mood is a bit nostalgic...
