I posted information about my radio interview in the General Chat section. Lucky Star and anime in general were not mentioned but there were a few sentences about Hollywood being corrupt.

Responding to my earlier post, if Konata were in this situation, I think she would do all these things while trying to set a new record on a Multi-Member Online Role Playing Game. Although she would fail miserably on most of the tasks, she would succeed in setting a new record.

It's interesting to just pop back into this sub-forum on a whim and see just how more subdued the responses are of people watching Lucky Star after it's initial airing and hype are over, most consisting if "It was satisfying" or "Hit and Miss" compared to the "This is greatest thing I've ever seen in my life" that I used to remember arguing with people over.

It's a whole different experience when you aren't right in the thick of one of the biggest popularity booms of a studio and franchise in recent history to be sure.

I figured people would be more excited over the R1 release. Its actually got a pretty good dub ... and I hate dubs.

As I watch the first volume --- my initial thought that Lucky*Star is, at heart a sort-of Japanese Peanuts holds up quite well (it really did not *need* all that anime-only injection, thank god whoever thought that up wasn't involved in ARIA or AzuDa....).

That would probably be Kadokawa themselves as I've speculated.

I wouldn't expect the hype to survive over here except in the niche crowd.

I seem to be posting much more now that there are fewer people to read my posts. This is partially due to people in general posting less making a greater percentage of the remaining posts mine. I do expect a surge in posts once the dub is released but I have no idea how big a surge or how long it will last. I plan to buy the Lucky Star DVDs eventually but I see no reason to rush into things.

Is there any way you can put a sound clip of your radio interview on YouTube??

YouTube may be difficult without any audio. Below is a link to where it can be found in the archives.

Radio Interview, my segment is from 36:00 to 43:45, 7 minutes 45 seconds in all.

I thought I'd ask here, but is Lucky Star worth watching?

Everytime I hear a mention of Lucky Star on other places, the reactions are mixed and usually negative, and I don't quite understand why. So, I'm about to cave in and watch it (I know it's licensed), but I'd at least like to know what makes it so popular?

It's mostly the moeblob factor that people rave and hate about. And the fact that the show's contents can be hard to catch a lot of the time.

Lucky Star is definitely not for everyone, but it seems to have a loyal fanbase among those who do like it. Unlike ratings, selling DVDs depends more on a loyal fanbase than appeal to a general audience.

I often compare it to Peanuts --- (the original Peanuts, the way it used to be - irreverent, philosophical, daily life). Modern examples might be the comics like Zits or Bucky. Focusing on the moeblob, to me, means the ranter just took a shallow scoop and missed the meat.

There are a fair amount of "inside obscure joke" references --- but in almost every case, it doesn't matter if you "got the reference" or not because all you really needed to know was that Konata associates everything with some cultural/anime/manga reference. Most of the base humor is "daily life humor" and the "obscure gags" are anime-only inserts.

I always tell people who hear mixed reviews: look at who is MAKING the review. Liking or hating a show like Lucky*Star (or AzuDa or ARIA or...) often tells me more about the reviewer than the series.

No no, it's the otaku pandering aspect that many including me were turned off by part way through the series run. That and the tendency of Kadokawa to constantly inject references to their manga licenses into the show at every possible turn, but to no real benefit. It was just like:

Oh here's a Full Metal Panic Yaoi manga, remember Full Metal Panic?

Me: "Yes......Oh that's it.......that's the joke? Really"

Occasionally you'd still get some decent character moments after the 1/3 way point, but once Konata and to some extent Kagami actually started to advocate for Kadokawa the love was lost more or less from my stand point. I just saw her more as a mascot then a real character at that point. That's not a good thing.

Strangely enough, I completely see and understand Kaioshin_Sama's remarks as well.
The series executes on a number of frequencies - whether you can tune out the ones that annoy you will determine any enjoyability.

Though the FMP yaoi "gag" (at least in my view) was more "Kagami loved some manga series... at the con she picks up a book that has her favorite characters on the cover.... a few pages in she becomes distraught at the realization that the story has her favorite characters doing Very Explicit Things she never would have thought of them doing."
Whether it was FMP or not was completely irrelevant -- in fact the strip it is based on just has her picking up an unnamed unidentifiable doujin of a series that we know she likes. However, many of the what I'll call "fad fans" focused completely on the added references rather than any plot within a sketch segment.

So he's a fad fan, except he hates instead of appreciates.

But that's fine, a lot of the contents are hard to catch for folks over here.
