It's not licensed in NA... though I wouldn't be really all that surprised if it did get licensed eventually.

It's sometimes frustrating to look for the chinese versions of things though Although I'm fully fluent and competent in the language. Many thanks, anyways.

eh, yeah. The manga is what the anime is based on ... a collected series of 4-koma that were originally published in magazines.

Its very cute.... you should read it (available at amazon.co.jp or Kinokuniya bookstores amongst other places).

I feel that...I'll be looking too, now that you suggested it.

Wow I go onto the biggest possible Chinese manga site available and Lucky stars isn't there... Sola and Fate stay night are, but neither are Nanoha strikers OR Lucky star. Lame.... Ad to imagine that Lucky star is more popular than Sola...

Someone named "Shyuu" gets the mangaka credit for the new manga while Yoshimizu only gets an "original source" credit. I don't care for Shyuu's style of drawing the characters. I've seen some very good non-SD Lucky Star art, but this new manga looks too much like realistic bodies with cartoon heads for my taste. IMO, the twins just look freaky in this style.

Not sure about the cartoon heads (you may be getting that because none of the characters - except for Kona's dad - are drawn with noses), but I also don't care for the style... not sure what it is about it, but it's unappealing to me.

The "realistic" look I still like best is this one:

...Which was posted somewhere around here a while ago, but I can't find it. *swt* So I just nabbed it off a random site. *swtswt*

Okay, I admit, I haven't really been looking for Chinese scanlations. So just today, I hopped on Google for 15 minutes.

I think I got them all. But they're all registration only + view-on-site, so don't hold your breath as I try to get them all down.

Yeah your right...if Kona-chan was drawn that way in the anime she's very attractive...or maybe because her mom looks like her the author decided to hybird the face of the parents making her smile like a cat similar to dad and the elegant moppy hair from mom.

BTW belated Happy Father's day

That's the origional 4koma, but later the author changed to the current style.

There's even one 4koma later in the series that refers to this art-style change, which can be taken as a self-mockery of the manga itself.

Konata talks about how some manga authors adapts to drawing characters over the course of time. They "evolve" their drawings to which they become the most comfortable with. On the other hand, this tends to showcase the dramatic difference in artstyle towards their readers, and is especially noticeable if one should happen to compare with his/her older drawings. Then Konata breaks into an uneasy laugh, "uh...I don't think we should continue this discussion anymore."

Hnn, thanks for shedding light on that... I haven't read any of the 4-koma except for what's in volume 4 and in the Comptiq mag I have. I still like that "realistic" look best though.
