The moment I heard KyoAni is going to be doing RakiSuta, I was dumbfounded and in a state of shock.

But then again, this is KyoAni's first attempt in animating a 4koma manga, so I guess their choice understandable. Being able to do a 4koma is tougher than it sounds. Azumanga and Pani Poni pulled it off brilliantly, so I have yet to see how KyoAni will be able to handle this. If they can pull a great storyboard out of this, KyoAni will level up again.

Art style and quality, I'm not afraid of. I have high confidence that they will bring out the best shine for my beloved trio of Konata, Tsukasa and Kagami.

I wonder if they are going to keep the same seiyuu as in the dramaCD and the Nintento DS game though? Hirohashi Ryo's portrayal of Konata was brilliant, so I hope they all stay the same. Oh, and please animate Hinata from the Moe Drill game Hinata so I can hear Noto-tan's beautiful voice!!


Which reminds me...I'd better do an English wikipedia for RakiSuta.

While this is show sounds interesting and with KyoAni involvement means the anime is gonna be at least high quality, this also means no FMP! or Haruhi for next spring....Booooooo

offtopic: I'm betting they're going to let the Haruhi merchandise run its cycle ... from a cynical business perspective there's no point to making more anime of Haruhi unless the merchandise sales are stellar... then there's the consumer hyperventilation factor...

I'm kind of interested to see a KyoAni take on 4 panel cartoony style comics... though it *is* possible they be expanding their team and this is the new team's project.... okay now I'm completely operating without data here...

Since this series is mainly published on mags read by otakus, don't be surprised to see a few (as in a lot) otaku references. Many of the main girls possess one otaku-trait or another (interests in anime, manga, video games, online games, light novels, doujinshis, etc.). There's even an otaku transfer student (Patricia).

Well, it's a slice-of-life type of manga featuring a group of (relatively ordinary) girls carrying about their (relatively ordinary) daily lives, similar to Azumanga. There's also no male characters (no romance elements), just like Azumanga.

In terms of contents, Lucky Star can range from normal daily issues to some more niche stuff only otakus will get. In general, it should be enjoyable for everyone though.

Thanks for the reply.

Guess I'll check some bits of the manga to start getting familiar with the characters.

Well one of them is. Konata regularly plays bishoujo and ero-games. Kagami is one of those tsukkomi & tsundere types who likes reading light novels. Tsukasa is your typical dojikko, and Miyuki is the big-breasted meganekko.

Does that style have a name? It isn't really chibi.... but I see it used when someone doing a "whatdahell" look or side glance in comics at times. Extremely cute/cartoony.
3~4 toushin (head to body ratio)? In many ways Konata can be puni though.

The cast for Lucky☆Star has been announced.



Cast/Anime Seiyuu (Drama CD, Game Seiyuu)

Izumi Konata: Hirano Aya (Hirohashi Ryou)
Hiiragi Tsukasa: Fukuhara Kaori (Nakahara Mai)
Hiiragi Kagami: Katou Emiri (Koshimizu Ami)
Kobayakawa Yutaka: Hasegawa Shizuka (Shimizu Ai)
Takara Miyuki: Endou Aya (Nakayama Erina)
Kuroi Nanako: Maeda Konomi (Asano Masumi)
Narumi Yui: Nishihara Saori (Saitou Chiwa)
Iwasaki Minami: Chihara Minori (Matsuki Miyu)
Patricia Martin: Sasaki Nozomi (Yukino Satsuki)
Tamura Hiyori: Shimizu Kaori (?)
Kogami Akira: Konno Hiromi (Nonaka Ai)
Miyakawa Hinata: ? (Noto Mamiko)
Miyakawa Hikage: ? (Tamura Yukari)
Takara Yukari: Kosuge Mami (?)
Izumi Soujirou: Hiramatsu Hirokazu (?)
Hiiragi Tadao: ? (?)
Minoru: Shiraishi Minoru (original anime character)

Hm, I am surprised about the substantial change in the seiyuu cast, considering this is a Kyoto Animation/Kadokawa title, and not a Star Child produced one.
I have to admit my first reaction was that the original cast has more clout, not to say that I'm not giving the young anime seiyuus a break, which a KyoAni title can provide.

Regarding the fact that the results of this reader poll to guess the Drama CD cast was more or less in line with the actual seiyuus, the change in the anime cast is drastic.


In any case, looking forward to the anime, slated for spring.

<snipped>
Given Hirano-san's recent medical problems, are they still certain that she will be able to perform this role? I certainly want to see her continue her professional success and enjoy listening to her vocal talents, but I would hate to learn that it came at the expense of her health.

I've seen some implicit noise that Hirano's illness has been overblown by the PR machine to increase the anxiety buzz amongst the fandom. Much as I like her though, I just prefer that anime productions use the VAs from the games or drama CDs if that is indeed the source material. I'm guessing the original VA had some schedule conflict.

The complete cast change is quite significant, and it's understandable that some people might be disappointed. After all, the drama cast had some big names in it. We'll see how much it matters once the anime's out.

But the Konata: Hirano Aya pairing is a little... blatant?

Hopefully both her agency and herself have learned her limits when it comes to workload. Considering the amount of work she did this year, it's not surprising that her body gave out.

For now though, Aya's looking lively again, so things should be alright.
