I have to admit that was an interesting episode this run. Man how much can we "plug" 'Haruhi' in someone else's show? Gee, 'Kyoto Animation' I know you animated 'Haruhi' but damn, how much more do you want to plug it? I also learned that the same studio was responsible for 'FMP' series too. No wonder there were a lot of those dolls lying around. Yet I've never seen the show.

Ok, references, references... I think I want a 'Lucky Star' shirt. Maybe a 'Yui' one would be good. Ok, I admit the "3" styled mouths are getting to me.

KyoAni isn't responsible for the FMP in 2002, although, it is responsible for FMP:F and The Second Raid, but really though most of the FMP reference is contained in the Comiket episode. Kagami reads the light novel.

FMP is Kagami's closet otaku weakness. So that's a reference I would actually expect to see in the anime adaptation.
Of course, there's the ongoing rumor that KyoAni will take the first FMP as a project down the road.

Simon just PMed me about his progress at his own L*S Holy Site Tour, and he's captured most of the Tokyo locations, like the walk back from the concert. Tomorrow his time he'll be heading into Saitama... hopefully no locals will give him the evil eye as he frolic around Washinomiya Shrine with his big back pack and camera.

Thanks for the link! It's actually a not bad... very little anti-otaku crap there about security etc. The head priest was pretty nice, and the neighbor baba find it all funny. It is pretty cool that they even went to Akiba to AND bought that copy of NewType. It's funny how ever single otaku was embarrassed to talk about it... I think they musted look all day to find a few who would talk on camera. There's even an ota cosplaying in the shrine... I hope they stop THAT. Some of the arts are pretty decent. Hey why not... when they visit they have to contribute to the shrine... more money to run the Jinja... why not.

Let's discuss a few points from EP16:

1. What's the link between the movie Ringu and EP16?

2. If you were to pick a LOTR race for each of the girls, what would you have selected? Do you agree Kagami as being in the Orc race?

3. Miyuki and her mom both are unusually found of putting their hand on or near their cheeks. Is it because:

a. They both like how it add to their Moe-Youso (essence),
b. They both like their respective cheeks a lot,
c. Dental disease and dislike of dentists and/or dental hygiene is hereditary, or
d. All of the above.

Please discuss. Feel free to add your own curios.

Supposedly, someone mentioned earlier that Ringu had something to do with the "ringutone" that Konata got to put on her phone. [lol, she took it out of her room finally?]

Hm... LOTR.. since I haven't read the books/seen any of the movies, I probably would've thought of any of the following series:
Quote:
Dungeons & Dragons
Warhammer
Warcraft
Final Fantasy XI
The Elder Scrolls series
Lineage II
Hârn
Earthdawn and Shadowrun
Sovereign Stone Series
The Killing Spirit
The Three Towns
Utopia
Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
Orkworld
Magic: The Gathering
Disciples
Siege of Avalon
Fallout
Palladium Fantasy
Flintloque
Ragnarok Online
Seeing as how Konata plays that game online so often, I'm sure that she was probably talking about one of the ones I bolded. XD Then again, are we ever given any hints at ALL about what she's playing?

And the cheek thing.. seems like it is to make herself seem more moe. Most idols seem to do it during photoshoots and stuff. Perhaps it's just a reflex she's developed over the years after looking up endless facts with her elbow on her desk with her hand on her cheek?

Mark of a True Tsundere... They seemed to do it WHENEVER possible though

Hmm... probably not since it's not called ringtone in Japanese. Ringu to a Japanese means a ring. Oh Lord of the RING? Man that is obscure.

Kona knows... but the other girls would only know about LOTR... Every woman and girl in Japan knows Orlando Bloom.

It is a typical Japanese female habit to point to your own cheek when thinking (it is extraordinarily cute and I wish more girls would do it) so I thought it maybe related, but she's touching them like, every single scene it seemed. They are the "Natural-Kei" moe types... they don't know they are moe but they just ARE.

Japanese girls do all sorts of cute gestures which L*S has depicted... like how Tsukasa puts both of her hands in front of her with palm facing inside. That is a what a young child would do and again, super cute!

Why? You've been to the Tour? You've carried your big backpack into Washinomiya Jinja?

Simon is back from his own Holy Site Tours and he'll be posting his pictures soon! Boy oh boy I hope he took some good ones... maybe that same baba on TV to.

Man, to be young and capable-of-having-family-free-vacations....

No, well not the Lucky Star tour specifically; I will be going to Japan in '09. As for the big backpack, hell no. Although I will admit, if I was going to Japan when I was still in college, I'd buy hella anime-related junk and probably would be carrying a backpack.

But in '09, I plan on traveling light, except for the briefcase of course. I plan on buying mostly fashion and Amerikaji clothes and maybe one or two Haruhi-related trinkets, if it's still popular by that time. That's about it.

Man this tread needs more life!

I was thinking about EP19's strange LC... Shiraishi was busy TEXTING someone, even at the irk of the mighty Akira-sama. Who could he be texting? Must be a gal... no way he's texting his parents. So the question is.. WHO.

Then we have the pretty good ED: Shiraishi singing "Kaorin's Theme". Kaorin is of course seiyuu for TSUKASA. The whole thing is like a love song from Shiraishi to Kaorin; maybe he wants to date her in real life (don't blame him, she's pretty darn cute). But it does gives me some clue... if I'm L*S writer and I see all this Minoru (seiyuu) x Kaorin action going on, what would I do with L*S? Hmmm...

Who likes texting the most in L*S? Who text so much that she got a scolded for high phone bill? Gosh... maybe we have it ALL WRONG. We all thought Shiraishi was eyeing Kagami during Valentine's Day... but think about it.... maybe, just maybe, the final, ultimate secret for L*S is...

Spoiler for Can it BE?:


Come on now, think about it... This is a better pairing. Any more evidence to suggest this?

That one of Tsukasa's hopes for the future was to be a bride?

I'm willing to bet he was texting a Hiiragi. Which one, though, is up in the air.

My gut is still telling me Kagami, although this episode makes me go "hmmmm...".

EDIT: I just remembered something in episode 15, right where they're coming out of the concert. Here's the conversation (based on a.f.k.'s subs).

Tsukasa: "The first person who came out was so cool."

Kagami: "Eh? That guy?"

Tsukasa: "Eh? No?"

Kagami: "People actually go for that, huh?"


By "that guy", I'm assuming it's Shiraishi, since he's the emcee for their concerts, right? If that's the case, then the Tsukasa x Shiraishi argument just got a boost.

Dude, that's an EXCELLENT find. Yes he is the MC at the concert..... Wow, this is really getting interesting. Hints of romance everywhere.... And why does Shiraishi gets all the girls? The other more famous seiyuus don't get sing not one, not two, but at least 5 EDs in an anime, two of them your own creation! He gets his own animated character! He gets to STAR in his own MV! He gets to flirt with all the girls! He gets the girl both IN AND OUT of anime!? And dont' tell me Akira-sama don't have a secret crush on Shiraishi or Hiromi-chan isn't looking out for some young meat... I mean right now, who is in the male seiyuu world is hotter than Mr. White Rock? And he has never had a decent role! Man, anime popularity sure is funky...

Minoru really has his own harem going there with the VAs of all the girls.... o the possibilities... muhahahaha.

The whole thing is really pretty funny in its own way.

OMG!!! Shiraishi behind that drag...I didn't know you where a real man. *wink*
(old style trying to get the girls, by being one)

He's immortalized in L*S. Probably one of my favorite male characters now due to the REAL Shiraishi Minoru
