Hmm...I doubt it, seeing as this series promises to be even more otaku-ish. As Kaioshin-dono stated earlier, the humor of the series relies on how well you can get all the references to games and anime and stuff. Most casual fans will likely be out of the loop, and miss many of these jokes. I don't even expect myself to get it all.

Then again, what'd I expect from a series where the promotion art features Wii controllers? I'm still interested in watching, though, simply because I absolutely love such trivia.

Anyway, perhaps this is a baseless assumption, but I have this feeling we're going to be getting the next Haruhi, popularity-wise. Am I crazy?
Apparently I'm more popular than the show now. I am a man though despite what everyone seems to think lately.

Having read the manga I can say Lucky Star is not really that otaku-centric. It's just got some reference of general otaku and fandom culture (for example, like getting addicted to net games) that really anyone who is not a complete anime n00b will get. A fairly general level of geeky-ness is completely sufficient to enjoy Lucky Star, which I think anyone who visits this board - those of you who actively seek out anime directly from the source - are already qualified. The level of otaku joke in Lucky Star is only really at the Haruhi level at best, hell the Gyakuden Saiban/Phoneix Wright joke in Haruhi anime is more hardcore than anything I've read in Lucky Star. Things like Nadesico and Gunbuster which pokes fun at specific anime series are more otaku-centric than Lucky Star.

As Animaniacs proved over and over and over again --- you can positively be reeking of cultural references, inside jokes, and trivia, have less than a quarter of the audience catch those and still be amazingly funny.

What I've seen of the manga humor so far says they can be pretty funny without worrying about "Penny Arcade transience".

Oh, that's such a pity, Kaio-rin. You were stacking up to be oh, so MOE......


"Ne, Ma-i?"



"Mm-hmm."

See?

I still find him moe. Heck, I find it relaxing reading his posts after a long, stressful day at work, and I'm developing warm, brotherly feelings towards him. In many ways, he reminds me of Petoko from Petopeto-san.

Agreed. It must be the way Kaio-tan is just so Tsun-Tsun about everything, that one can't help but wonder if there is a secret deredere side.

We need someone to draw Kaio-tan as a school-girl with a bokken and zettai ryouiki, stat!

Not into the whole moe craze as most people are but looking at the scans gives me that good old Ichigo Mashimaro vibe along with the Azumanga Daioh vibe that everyone already mentioned.





Ichigo Mashimaro is an exception... it's an interesting moe......

I'm sorry, but this is the best I could do with my limited skills, methods, and with such little time...

.....why am I being associated with Kaio-nyan, again?

Nevertheless, that was freakin' amusing. Now I'm wondering what MINE would be like.....

Ironically, a discussion about in-jokes is starting to turn into an in-joke itself.

Hmm...

It's obvious it's an April Fool's Joke. Kyoto Animation planned Lucky Star to air that time. Haruhi 2 won't be until somewhere in 2008. That's obvious. Besides, I don't celebrate April Fool's Day anyway anymore (that was loooooooooong ago when I stopped celebrating due to mutantous prank my sister pulled on me).

Blessed are those who still have the blissful innocence to fall for these tricks.

Cheers.

Wow I have pretty high stats. Looks like I probably couldn't take Shana though with her evade and critical rate.

It's an interesting series, but I'm just afraid too many people will be disappointed by hype for no reason. KyoAni is certainly on the high mark in many people's eyes at the moment, but one must still keep their expectations in check.

Regardless, 5 more days~
