In the sense that he'd be appearing in multiple threads rather than one gigantic one?

A section here simply reflects early boost of popularity. Lucky Star will most likely be able to maintain it's presence in the episodes to come, since Lucky Star being a faithful 4-koma adaption will most likely follow the rules of "screw the rules, I have money" in the twisted sense of "screw the plot, we have moe" in a non-negative kind of way, just in case that sounded bad. Kyoto Animation had always been respectively popular here and they also know how to hit the respective fans in the correct places, so it's not too strange, quality of storytelling notwithstanding.

It doesn't necessarily mean that. She could just have had a shower but not bothered changing clothes afterwards. Or perhaps she has loads of those shirts.

Yay our own sub-forum =D

About Konata and her shirt: While I wouldn't put it past her to not shower, she could do the same thing I do. During winter I'll have like my "slumming sweatshirt" that I wear in front of my computer. So I'm taking it on/off multiple times over a few days.

It's not like a sweatshirt is in direct contact with your body like t-shirts are. And Konata is probably using maybe 1 donut's worth of energy a day, so I doubt sweat is an issue haha... And it being Konata, I don't think she really cares what she wears when visiting her friends, especially for only a study group.

I attend my anime club in pajama pants half the time haha ;P

First, yay for a whole section for Lucky Star
Second, Heero didn't wear same clothes for 50 eps. He changed many kind of clothes depend on where he was.

Yeah, but that's only because his clothes were part of his character design (and also according to legend, his shirt is woven with Gundanium threads and as such was almost as indestructabe as he was.)

Kona-chan actualy do own many different clothes. The fact that she kept wearing the same shirt for four days would have passed unnoticed, except for the fact that everyone else in the same time period updated their clothes daily!

Well, the manga shows all of them (even Kona) wearing quite a lot of different clothes... but Kona clearly has at least one set of "sluffing around the house at the computer" set of favorite fuzzy wear.

As I mentioned, this would be plausable except she weared it out to visit her friend's house! After not washing it for four days...

We can say the same about Ryo Saeba or Kenshiro or any staples from the big classics.
I assume it was a time we did not care so much for our protagonists's fashion sense.

There you go, patience is a virtue people. Just as I thought Kanon also got swapped out too. That's the price to pay, but it also makes sense. When everybody suddenly has the same series avatar you know its time to act. Though I don't know if its popular in the sense that people think its a masterpiece so much in the sense that it has that Kyoto Animation flair for meme's and discussion therof. Kind of like what Nightengale said, you can't fail when you always do exactly what your fans want. It's a good relationship I guess, but like Nightengale also said it has its drawbacks. It works though.

I'd also like to thank Skane for making this so I can put it to good use. No problem with a good self-ribbing. Hopefully he doesn't mind.

Vallen, I'm a lunatic? Is that in the "Crazy" wacky way or the "CRAZY!" psycopath way?

Also in case people are wondering I have 11% of the posts made thus far in this thread or 7 pages worth total and growing exponentially by the episode. What happens if I up and leave? Before people want to go and accuse me of hating on the series and wanting to see it die out of a long dead vendetta against moe, think of how far that went in contributing to the show getting its own board.

I am also glad because now the series has its own image board, where all the goofy pictures and knockoffs of pictures can go. I expect that thread to be larger than the series thread before long and its good that it will remain seperate from the main discussions. So there everybody wins.

Now everybody commence the discussion of Gundam Wing. I mean, Hokuto No Ken....er what was this series called again. City Hunter....no that's not it .

As Devil's advocate here: How dirty could it possibly get? She's sitting in front of a computer for 4 days. Ask any food-service worker how often they wash their work-polo... (I'll tell you now, the average isn't gonna be anything less than 3 days unless they're a neat freak)

It is amazing how he get his clothes back, in a dystopic future, everytime he tears them off when he is pissed.

Speaking of that section, have you noticed that everyone is the same height as Miyuki?

I'm a bit amused by all the debate over how many of the references inside L.S. are referring to other KyoAni productions/industry memes/culturalmemes/nothing at all really. One of the reasons I like their work is that they regularly have tidbits that exist on more than one level at once. Like the song lyric "So much mind on the matter/ The spirit gets forgotten about", or the phrase "fuer grissa ost drauka" ... or that bit from the OP, "seihin sanpi", there's a lot of stuff in here with multiple meanings that are distinct and equally valid.
Miyuki is terribly genki and kawaii. At the same time the show mocks her for causing such mo-e reactions in the viewers, even while she's appreciated for the exact same characteristics. Additionally, she has that anti-stereotype characteristic of being the extra-smart girl, a role usually played by bitter sarcastic pipsqueaks like Ruri from Nadesico. I think that's what I like best about shows like this and AzuDai, the parts where the characters go against the stereotypes they initially seem to fall into. Like Osaka's fascination with morbid topics, heheheh.

One last note: People are increasingly misconstruing the meaning of the word moe. It refers to an excessive fascination with something attractive. Line from a Japanese show: "Basically, I'm very moe about ankles." Limitations of translation apply, but the fact is that moe is a feeling generated in the audience. The character themselves might be terribly genkiand kawaii, but, um, moe is a feeling! It's not a subgenre of anime.

Hmmm.. well her waistline is the only one that isn't visible in that shot,and her knees are higher up. I think the mistake is more that Konata isn't noticeable shorter than the rest of them.
