... it reminds me of those silly sketches where the "adaptation writers" so completely rework a story that it is unrecognizeable to the author outside of the title. Why did they even bother to lift the title? Lots of stories abound about "doomed love" without people being named Romeo or Juliet.... (I've already done enoug posts lampooning 'adaptations gone wild')

For something fun like what I'd rather see ---
If anyone remembers a tv series called "Moonlighting" that included such unknowns as Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard... they did a wonderful "omake theatre" episode called "Atomic Shakespeare" that was a fanciful musical satirical blend of the play "Taming of the Shrew" and its parallels with the world the characters inhabited. The setup was we saw a kid who was a fan of "Moonlighting" wanting to watch the show but was banned from the tv set until he finished his Shakespeare essay...

Because, despite being an admirer of Shakespeare, I just can't stand Romeo and Juliet. I have issues with the characters, as I find them ranging from mildly annoying to downright idiotic. I'm also not keen at all on the use of "love at first sight".

well with only 2 eps shown and the single thread going 1200+ posts im pretty sure that this series deserves its own section ~ and if its the comedy that you dont understand then its probably wise to quit :3

Well the amount of posts has slowed substantially since it got its own forum. I'm almost the only person who posts anymore I swear.

Just this one topic alone has more posts than some other series' entire forums here on AnimeSuki. That's enough to warrent some attention.

It seems that way because the posts are now spread out over several threads instead of confined to just one. Postings in the sub-forum seem to be about the same as they were before.

Things get their own forum if the traffic warrants..... sometimes a series has a huge initial surge of topics, gets its own forum, and then all you can hear are crickets and tumbleweeds (simply not much to say or some other shiny grabs hold) -- recent examples include kashimashi and Negima!?, both had this happen to them. The "goodness" is irrelevant.

However, Lucky Star is based on a rather popular 4-koma manga -- that plus hype from the production company involved stirred up a lot of curiousity at the least. The humor is subtle and at times mild so it may not be to everyone's taste.

I am guessing that a lot of folks now wait for their favorite sub before posting instead of jumping to the first RAW or speedsub available.

I for once, would not have been able to keep the posting pace I showed during the first two weeks.

Aye... I'm not watching the RAWs anymore... waiting for the subs.... therefore, not much to say after a day or two of over-analyzing what is basically a happy simple little show.

About the only thing that could be watched for non-moonspeaking people is the ED.
This week's ED rocks BTW ^^

LuckyChannel is sure taking their time...
I was expecting my RakiSuta fix yesterday =.=

You know, it's weird but after two epsiodes I'm already mulling over ideas for continuation stories.

And they're naughty. I feel shamed.

Imagine, after graduation, Kona, Miyuki and Tsukasa forming a manga circle, and after six years having had some success (Kona would be the writer, Miyuki the artist and business manager, and Tuskasa the shader/inker/typesetted). Just before Comiket, Kagami shows up at their doorstep havign been thrown out and abandoned by the slimeball she'd married. She's got to stay somewhere, and she is family -- even though she disapproves of her sister's choice of careers.

But when she joins the trio of their trip to Comiket, that's when she's in for a real shock. Although the trio are professionals who no longer sell doujinshi, they still go to Comiket to 'scout talent" -- or, rather, to cut loose and party. since nobody at Comiket knows they're up-and-coming mistresses of manga, they get to revel in their relative anonymity -- and Miyuki's fondness for "tutoring" young artists proves especially shocking for Kagami (who still has that ramrod up her *** when it comes to men and women, or women and women).

Could it be they're taking time to proofread first? That would be a shocker.
Not that I'd watch them even if they release first. LC dropped the ball on this series.

But I d/led Hayate this afternoon and am about to go watch it now, so I can wait another couple hours for my weekly moe-otaku fix.

welllllll, even a.f.k. makes mistakes.... the dentist sequence had some grammar errors even allowing for casual speech patterns. But yes, LC could probably use some editing and QC assistance. They've recently acquired some new help so they may be working out the kinks.

Well LC's is out now, so I guess ppl won't be complaining. XD

Still, ~36 hours after first raw available is still pretty speed if you ask me. I don't know why people are complaining in the first place. >_>

Spoiled by the record-breaking speeds of TWH-Sprocket and SS-Eclipse when they did Kanon 2006, no doubt.
