Yeah, we figured that out . My wife reads manga and watches anime and both my son's girlfriends do so (but it took some browsing to find them).

-offtopic:
There's still a silly amount of social pressure for girls to avoid certain things (like playing with Legos, math, physics, gameplaying, certain hobbies) and I'd like to see those social pressures vanquished. I spend far too much time firing clues into my peers (the parents of people like most of the posters here) that their little girls should be playing sports, taking those "hard" courses and its alright to play video games, etc. The very attitude and assumption amongst young males that everyone in an FPS, watching an anime, or on the Net is a guy speaks to how much work remains.
-ontopic:

Looks like April is going to be a busy month between Lucky Star, Hidamari Sketch, Nanoha S., and all the other interesting stuff going on.

Maybe the execution will be different, but somehow a seinen moe title about girls that play video games doesn't seem to empower the female gender to me.

You've got teens (16 and 17 yos) drawn to look like grade schoolers.

I see that they are going to get the metallic-liquid eyes treatment. ^^; I notice that the background is very crayon-like though. I guess the usual background artists are getting a Spring vacation?

Man... I still think of that red marble( from Kanon(2006)) whenever I think of Lucky Star. Overkill.

Cheers.

You just described Manabi Straight as well. Maybe there's a trend for this kind of thing.

I'll be using my computer instead of my dad's (which I'm most usually on) because my dad is ordering new parts for it. Luckily my anime episodes and story chapters are saved. Sorry I went off-topic. Just felt like letting you know. Back on topic....Ooooooooh! They did a really cool anime version of Miyuki! She looks pretty! Konata, Tsukasa and Kagami's anime versions look so adorable!

Hmmm... what about a third option? Something like SuperGals.

Still stylised, and sort of cute, but not really kiddie.

I don't think that was really intentional so much as they were pasted on to share the cover of a girls heroine themed magazine and should be seen as complete seperate rather than with each other in the traditional buddy buddy sense (i.e interacting).

Gotta hand it to them for the nice touch up on the characters, making them not look quite as triangular. This is probably the second anime to look much better than the manga, the first being Black Cat, the all time champ of artistic improvement in all sectors.

There are now strong indications (including the ad poster below) that this will be a "2 kuur" (i.e., two season, or 24-episode) anime. This seems like a bad idea for an anime of this kind. One person on 2 channel posted that although he is a fan of the comic, he doesn't think it should go two seasons. We'll see. I love Hidamari Sketch, for example, but 12-13 episodes is definitely going to be enough.

I don't know if this has been posted here before, but there is an English advertising poster for the anime. I guess it's genuine. The English advertising suggests to me that KyoAni may be aiming for quick international licensing:



I suspect that voice-recording is already underway, so I hope they made the decision to go 24 episodes based on the excellence of the first couple of episodes, lol.

I was just going to say the same thing, except from my perspective it's a good thing. I almost always find 12-13 episode shows way too short -- it seems to me that, too often, they're over just as you're getting into it. Of course that's just personal preference though.

Well, because it's from Kadokawa Pictures, they're probably going to partner with a company and release it themselves, just as they've done with FMP:TSR, Haruhi, and The Third.

Hey, well now we'll finally get to see how they can peform when they don't have the script all but written and handed to them to animate. Unless each episode is 5 minutes long of course, which is always a possibility given the nature of the comic.

Do you mean like "episodes-within-an-episode"? I guess that would be one option; it's definitely been done before. The actual episodes themselves, though, will be full-length.

It depends completely on the amount of material they have from the manga to work with. Azumanga Daioh had the entire 4 volume set to work with -- arguably they could have lopped off 4 or 5 episodes worth of material with no loss of continuity but somewhere some fan would have been a sad puppy.

If L*S has enough material (I've got to look up that star alt code) to run two seasons... then w00t. Since what I've read of it really seems "day to day" rather than some long storyline, it'll depend on the quantity of funny per second (kind of like Penny Arcade has good days and not-so-good days).

edit: Lucky☆Star (ah that works)
