The whole thing is really pretty funny in its own way.
I must say, I'm EXTREMELY envious of Shiraishi now...I'd be in heaven being surrounded by all the pretty ladies.

He seems like a genuinely affable guy, so kudos to him for his newfound popularity (professionally and romantically).

I was thinking about the lowly origin of Lucky Star, how they were a little 4-koma manga mascot for a game mag... and how Animate Tencho is the anime mascot for Animate stores.. and it just dawned on me...

Lucky Star is the first anime in the world with a HUMAN mascot.

My gosh, we are witnessing history in the making here.

There's rumor going around that Lucky Star has been licensed, but I can't seem to find any source for it at all, let alone one specifying which company may have the US license. Has anyone come across something concrete about this?

Heh.... (hi...) check the discussion in ep 18.

So far the only data at all is an assertion by the afk irc channel mod in a post (bayoab in the ep 18 thread) and the title of the irc channel itself.

The only verifiable data is that a.f.k. seems to have dropped it. And unless we get a news release or something more verifiable - its still unlicensed.
For now we do have the G. folks and I hope the EnA group starts up again after summer break.

Otherwise, I'll just save my pennies for the eventual licensing.

lol... I just read the same explanation three times in a row in three different threads. I've been reading it throughout the day as well....

I suppose the question about a.f.k. should've originally been asked in the generic thread (this one) and stayed here instead of moving to the other threads.

It looks more like a translator went on vacation, but a lot of users on afk seem to be sick of people coming in and asking, so there's a kick script for people who come in and ask..

It's likely that they've still got Lucky Star, as there's no reason that they'd just do it without any notice..

Heh.... see now that makes sense. I suppose it could be the caveat that "any buzz is good buzz" but really.. most people are fine with "translator on vacation, please stand by for a few weeks".

Bayoab is usually pretty straight forward, but his cryptic "the information is factually correct" when compared to the irc subject line which is a bit oblique tends to raise the "you've been pranked" estimate value They also haven't actually used the word "dropped" --- that's been used by all the query posts.

Actually the epsiode titles seem to be random anime or cultural references that had nothing to do with the episode. For example episode one is titled "The Girl who Runs Swiftly" Tsuppashiru Onna in reference to El Cazador de la Bruja, but that title has no relation to that episode. It doesnt even really apply to Konata because she is not that much of a runner.

Anyone here watchs Sayonara Sad Sensei? The anime version has a lot of Lucky Star references.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is the titles are randomly picked from one of the titles of the 4koma used in the episode.

we never seen Konata cried...there's no feeling of sadness in the anime nor the manga.

Ever since seeing the Angel Mom Kanata and Kona-chan pic. Kinda move me...in tears it so beautiful. If I can give 100 cookies to Shana~ for posting that I would

Hey there! I am new around here, but I liked so much this hread that I inmediatly registered. Let's talk about Lucky Star!!!
I have read your posts anout the relationship between Tsukasa and Shiaraishi, and it makes lot of sense... But, there is one thing that may end this discussion, and it is the answer given to Konata by Tsukasa the moment when they are talking about nicknames... (although it is episode number 10, a little early). When Konata asks what would she call Shiraisi, she says "Doesn't matter", or something like that...
What do you think about all of this? Please, reply!
Forgive about my english, he he!!

Uh...wow. So under all this 4-koma plot nothingness, there is a hidden love story under it all, and it's between a seiyuu and basically a human mascot. Like some sort of reality show, only it's very, very real.

So...now it's all up in the air. When Shirashi helped Kagami with her handkerchief, he was probably trying to get close to Tsukasa at the same time. However, we still haven't figured out who Shirashi is really after. Remember when Konata tried to peek into Kagami's phone?

Konata: "It's a man. Definitely a man."
Kagami: "No it's not!"

Wait a second...was he trying to ask Kagami what Tsukasa's doing, or...was he after BOTH?

Shiraishi x all the girls real and Lucky Star!!! FTW!!! (Iam a harem guy sorry)

Well well seems the girls real or anime have the hots for Shiraishi...what about Miyuki? There's signs from her that she likes Shiraishi...or is it well hidden in the episodes? One thing is for sure Konata is the first main girl character one to talk to Shiraishi...Sebastian and is it really Shiraishi that she huged when she was imagining? GET YOU!!!

Who knows...maybe the DVD versions will give a special to the real things happening behind the scenes.

Haha, I do that with blog posts all the time. I like to pick out an off-the-wall title that has nothing to do with the post but is a reference, just so people will comment, "heeeey, isn't your title from ___? <_<"

I must be blind, because I've only caught one or two L*S references in it so far. I don't mind if they add a few but if they start adding L*S references left and right, I'm going to be annoyed and disappointed. However, I don't see that happening so I'm not particularly worried.

Aye... I do hope burying the original content under random outside references doesn't become a trend of any kind. Used sparingly, its delicious -- used repeatedly, it becomes "what? beans again????!"

Hmmmm...... and I thought the reason I saw so many familiar faces their was only because a.f.k was doing it. That's one of those series I've found that was blown up with a lot of hype that I didn't really care for much.

I swear though the anime industry is slowing eating itself with this referencing, it's like every show wants to be Family Guy now.

It works as good marketing, but if one show or another over does it it's gonna get common.

But Lucky Star has every right to do it!!! One reason the main character is an otaku girl named Konata who likes anime stuff and games alot.

But what about parodies from movies?

I showed my best friend the opening on YouTube and she said that Nanako looked like Ed from FullMetal Alchemist. I was surprised by that. I bet ADV should get this if it gets licensed.

Just wishful thinking?

Bandai-America has Suzumiya Haruhi series... and with the forceful product tie-in, it would be almost astounding if Bandai didn't also do Lucky*Star's english anime release.

If I were the owner of Bandai, I'd probably shoot anyone who screwed up those negotiations It should be interesting though watching the dance between Kadokawa, Bandai, and KyoAni.
