Well...a little bit of both. Some say that KyoAni emphasized the possible "moe" in the anime to get a larger following (in how they act). Also, there are bound to be artistic differences in every adaptation. I've only personally read a few of the 4koma, though.

The art style in the 4-koma themselves have changed over the 5 volumes released, much like any comic artist kind of evolves his style over time.

The strips themselves are purely verbal humor -- the characterizations and personalities are pretty much the same as the anime. But they really are slice-o-life humor chopped into 4 panel gags.

The chapter titlepage art and random sidepage art has a lot of cuteness and some variety in the way characters are drawn (some of the pages even present a character in the various styles over time in several frames as well as the anime-style version).

If I can scan a few without damaging the books, I'll post them in the Image thread tonight.

Its an explanation of how to engage the Shinto ritual properly and is what Rembr says.
(I haven't forgotten about the examples 4-koma scans.... just have been very busy and sick or wife sick or... well, RL wins again. Perhaps Monday in the manga thread?)

Hi!

Thanks for that cultural education (such a long road to go!), and looking forward to the scans! Thanks!

Not sure if this has been asked, but is there any significance to the gesture Konata makes with her arms during the pictures on the OP (about 55 seconds in)? It kind of looks like a + sign.

Yes. That's the gesture used by Ultraman when he fires his Specium Ray.

Hi!

Hiyori Tamura's one of my top three L*S faves so I'd really appreciate anyone translating the dialogue here!

and the small print Japanese lettering all over the cover here:

Lucky☆Star Trivia Question

Hi!

(I'm placing this question here because I can't find a Lucky☆Star Trivia Topic and if I missed it I'm sorry and will erase this!)

Need to know what the girls are talking about in the "blood-type shushi" episode when one of them says "It's so cute!" and Konata says "but it's claws are poisonous!" or some such!

Also two "train" questions from unknown eps: What's the significance of Konata hastily and sheepishly pulling up her sliding yamaka's sleeve while standing up on the train, and also on a train Konata sleepily sits next to and slumps against Tommy Lee Jones! Awesome! Does any one notice this?

Thanks!

If I recall, they were visiting an actual website where one's personality can be tagged to a sushi dish like the blood-type mythology Japanese love so much.
I've no clue what kind of exotic sushi had poisonous claws but if you browse the episode thread, I vaguely recall someone discussing it there.

The Tommy Lee cameo was also noted in the associated episode thread -- he was the spokesperson for a sequence of commercials in Japan at the time. If you've seen Bill Murray's movie "Lost in Translation" (whisky spokesman), it parodied that sort of thing. And in real-life a sequence of drink commercials featuring Governor Arnold S. screaming at you from inside a bottle can be found on youtube.

Don't remember the sleeve incident at the moment to comment.

No, this is a fine spot for these sorts of questions as long as they're bundled up like that. But unlike a lot of anime threads here -- the episode threads actually have a fair amount of cultural reference, gag explanation, or trivia bits stocked up in them.

My error: Been advised that it was in ep 9 that were in a library discussing this mysterious cute poisonously clawed whatever it is but it wasn't a sushi thing (Thank God?), which was a later separate fortune-telling gag. So, Wiki fails at cute poisonously-clawed things!

Quote:

Thanks for that info! Been told Tommy was in ep 11. MangaShare also says Soujirou and Kanata make "flash" teaser background cameos in the Comiket ep. Must be AWFULLY brief because I sure wouldn't miss my 2nd fave heroine on the first pass! (Gotta get out of catching up eps via YouTube!).

Okay, been advised that this was in episode 20. Still don't know significance of Konata hastily pulling up her slipping yamaka sleeve while straphanging on a train but you know there MUST be! I can understand the fanning-up-her-skirt-in-Jap-train thing, but not this thingie.

Quote:

Yes, there're juicy golden nuggets of info scattered in every which topic it seems; wish there was a way to sweep it all up into one place! Though extremely useful and informative, it looks like the main Lucky☆Star References List here is long in suspended animation; Tommy's not in there or the computer sushi blood-type gags and such, and eps 22 and 24 are AWOL despite lots of ready references off-stage in the Cultural References in Lucky Star topic. You know, someone here can making a killing by throwing all those references onto a CD as a companion to the English Lucky☆Star DVDs coming out! Gee, when is America gonna ship out cartoons stuffed with mysterious, inscrutable and obscure Americana to befuddle Japanese with??

Anyway, anyone: Does Miyuki ever do a sleep-over (anime or manga)? And on Konata's birthday did we ever find out the gifts she was given (and properly hocked!)

With regards to what animal is cute and has poisonous claws...

The one animal that confounds biologists and give geneticists headaches...

The fuzzy-wuzzy and all-around adorable... platypus.



ADD] With regards to Konata pulling up of her sleeve, this is because it is inappropriate for a lady to show her armpits. Due to her height, Konata suffers from the law of gravity because she has to fully extent her arms to reach the hand-rings. It's a play on the ills she has to suffer for being such a shorty.

Cheers.

She's communicating with someone and the dialogue is incomplete, to up the mystery. She's saying stuff like he's starting to realize, better off not knowing, flow of things, limited time, beginning of the end, blah blah.

I don't see Yamato anywhere, she's named Amahara Fuyuki.

You want the entire profile translated?? There's not much points of interest.
