I once heard that they are a bunch of video game editors (IGN staff?) during a private viewing of an upcoming hot video game. They all get excited once the promo of said game starts. The pics are different btw, so this may only apply to one of them.

Or at least thats what I heard, dont take my word for it though. >_< !!

Actually, the real dangerous place back then was the suggestions forum....

Member A= Well yes, but what I really want is a......

Everyone= Watch Haruhi !

Member A= Sorry guys, but I dont like Haruhi.

Everyone= ROOAARRR !!!!


Anyway, to go somewhat back on topic. The first I heard of this show was from blog sites, but it wasn't until the Azumanga Daioh comparison started that I actually become interested in this show.

Well I enjoyed it, but then again I have a bit of a soft spot for the inconsequential 'stuff happens' type of thing. At least now with the a.f.k. subs I know what the opening song is about.

Although I think arguably (I'm split between that and Kono talking about her 'friends') the funniest bit was in Lucky Channel when Akira went from bouncy and energetic to angry and embittered.

Look forward to seeing how it develops.

Too late!!!! Just being REGISTERED on an anime/manga forum makes you 'otaku'!!!!! O the horror!!!! Flee for your life!

Seriously... the 'otaku' label is pretty much broken. The West has mangled the real meaning of the term - til it is just a fancy way of saying "geek/nerd fan of anime". Whereas in Japan, it still means a seriously subcultured lifestyle that may or may not be all that healthy. In Japan, 'otaku' brings up mental imagery in much of the public of a few nutcases who sporadically make the news after committing heinous crimes.... kind of like the mention of D&D in the 80s got you defending yourself from misinformed upstanding idiots about the Satanism and Drugs supposedly surrounding it.

Of course, the word itself is overloaded as historically it means "home" お宅, 御宅 otaku but written as hiragana refers to the slang meaning.
(see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otaku)

This is PURELY a personal preferential difference though.
I don't know if this was responded to in the pages after you posted (as I can't remember and I'm slightly inebriated), but I believe "parent child bowl" was used because otherwise, the "expanded family bowl" wouldn't make any sense without a note and would destroy the impact of the joke.

You know... all these "similarities" you are finding such as the Chiyo and Akari ones are simply character stereotypes traits reused commonly in stuff like this. In fact, the first thing I thought of in that Chiyo pic was the first transfer student from Konnyaku.

I think at this point the "similarities" have become a running gag within the thread itself in a bit of self-parody.

really people can think alot of parodies for this anime and it's very fresh!!!
I thought that was a pun on Moguro Fukuzou from "Warau Salesman". But then again, that pointing finger could be from many things.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Yanno though, being bothered by the lack of manliness in this show seems kind of odd since it's a show about high school girls. Although I'm also tired of having male leads who are whiny/incompetent. Anime needs more guys like Batou. And FYI... there's a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing.

Funny thing, I don't see the OP as being that much about dancing. Much of the footage isn't dancing, and some of the footage that is doesn't have the dance move creativity of Hare Hare Yukai. The fascination for me is with the music itself. I've been trying to figure out what's going on with all the time signature and tempo changes, the music is rather unusual for a "pop" song. Would be curious to hear some analysis from someone with more musical education than I have. I have to give the a.f.k. people major props for putting out what seems like such an accurate translation of the lyrics. Now I can sing it! Oh, and I was being driven nutz by the section in the middle after the shots of their legs, from that point to just before the cheerleading section was so reminding me of another song. Finally figured out what it is... "Spice Up Your Life" by the Spice Girls. Same shift to a lower register, with almost the same melody line. And I find both oddly addictive.

Going to put myself into the minority category here, I thought the section where they talk about food was the best part of the whole show. First because I've had conversations that are sooo similar in tone and flow, although not on the same subject matter. Second because I think it's a really good way to start the series by setting a tone that says thinking about the weirdness of everyday topics is the point... clearly we should expect a more cerebral and subtle tone than the sometimes manic pace of AzuDai, let alone the action of SHnY. And finally... because Miyuki is my alter ego. Or maybe I'm hers. She eats cake *just* like me... I've even used the phrase "normal distribution" to describe how I eat desserts. It's bordering on eerie. So I just hope that in my next lifetime I will be that cute!

About the somewhat over-rapid timing of many of the transitions: I'm thinking it may be a side effect of the extra strain that reading subs puts on the brain. A native viewer is going to be hearing the lines while their visual cortex is examining the elements of the scene. Someone who's trying to read the subs and look at the scene, back and forth, is gonna be a bit lagged mentally much of the time. This might make the cuts seem abrupt, when they aren't to the native viewer. Trouble is that a native viewer is also used to certain kidns of comic timing, so the only way to really test this theory is to find someone who's fluent but not immersed in Japanese culture. Or else I could watch a handful of scenes until I've memorized the dialoge, and then try watching without reading the subs at all.

I'd take the comment more seriously if he didn't have that SOS-dan Helicopter sig...

Still, if you're so self-conscious about your image, than you have no reason to worry. The stereotyped ani-ota couldn't care less, so you're already quite clear of harm's way... (*see Genshiken for further details)

Too bad I missed the earlier OT stuff on moe vs. shoujo...that would be a fun thread in itself. I like to point out that many popular moe series are done by artists also known for shoujo work... (CLAMP's Chobits, Koge-Donbo's DigiCharat, etc) furthering the confusion...oops, sorry, I'll shut up!

I'm aware of the Japanese meaning, which is why I'd like to avoid being called an Otaku. Wait... doesn't that make me MORE of an Otaku?!

I'M DOOMED!

FPB is on the right track. The original R1 release of AzuDai from ADV included booklets with lots of translation notes (I expect they might just come in handy while watching Lucky Star too...)

"Summer Service Day - In Japan, students are required to show up at school a couple times over the course of summer break. Usually, it's only for a couple of hours and not a whole lot gets done. Maybe a little preliminary planning for the sports or culture fest. Tomo, Osaka, and Yukari all wish it were a summer service day rather than the real first day back in school."
