slice of life dont need to put plot as the top priority imo, as long as a recurring theme such as going thru school exist. ie lucky star, minami-ke, azumanga, ppd all had daily life as a common theme. i find slice of life are good for exploring various events and situations which dont necessarily have to be plot driven.

Like MezzoDragon said, there is a large amount of yuri undertones for this series. However, the point for my comment was that there was actually more yuri undertones in Konata/Kagami. A LOT of the better hints were NOT recognized though.

One of the funniest things about that song is behind Kagami's moaning you hear the chorus often cutting in crying out "Alright!!" as if telling her "Hey, don't sweat it girl! Just DO it!!!" LOL!

I have no idea why I'm doing this but I keep feeling like I didn't make my point clear with my last posts and I want more people to know about this. Sure Konata and Kagami are just friends, however, friendship feelings is NOT the case here. Hints to yuri in the Konata/Kagami relationship were made throughout the series. Kagami does like Konata in THAT sense. Konata is a question mark in this relationship. I'm just not sure from her point of view. Kagami gave a LOT of hints to being interested in Konata in THAT sense throughout the series. I was very impressed with Kyoto Animation. The hints were very cleverly displayed while still being clear in the yuri sense. Some of the yuri hints from Kagami to Konata were so BLATANTLY obvious, it's absolute amazing how the hints got badly ignored by the fans. You can't give off more of a BLATANTLY obvious hint then the train scene of episode 3. If you didn't realize what Kagami did in that scene, go back and watch it NOW. What Kagami did in reaction to Konata in this scene was so BLATANTLY yuri obvious, it's absolute amazing how Kagami was able to get away with what she did. YURI is the only reason for what she did in that scene. It was just too blatant. Did anybody realize that Kagami had quite a bit of verbally blatant yuri statements about Konata as well? The most blatant was by far the statement she made in episode 4. Just before the Lucky Channel segment, Konata said, "That's why I just don't get girls." Kagami responds by saying, "Last time I checked you were one as well." Kagami checked to see whether Konata was really a girl? That would mean that Kagami might have actually seen Konata's....................................... and I serious can't go that far. You need to re-watch this series and keep your eyes FIXATED on Kagami. When I did that, I was picking up so many yuri vibes from Kagami to Konata I was literally crying. You can serious call Kagami a Tsundere, she has a love interest in Konata. I picked up quite a bit of dere dere Kagami to Konata moments that a lot of the fans didn't noticed. My favorite moment was by far the moment of episode 15............................................ and you know what? I'm NOT referring to the Haruhi concert scene.XD All I'm going to say about this scene is that I LOVE THIS MOMENT TO DEATH.XD So, there is actually more yuri in this show then people think. Anyway, if you don't want to re-watch the series to pick up on the hints, well Kagami's character song 100% Nai Nai Nai says it all. You can read the translation and listen to the song if you want.

No, you're not imagining it, guy. Look, I'm no sage, but anime animators, writers and producers are by nature and necessity a rather off-the-wall unorthodox progressive species and cut their reps and imaginations by pushing the envelope and thinking outside the box, and you can believe when they do anime they're not trying to ape Snow White. They love messing with our heads -- and we crave it like a dog's belly-scratch. Like it's a given that sly and not so shy yuri's seeded all over LS; if you see smoke there's fire, so no one's doubting you. The debate's which are the more telling signs to the same dance, that's all. Ironically, what SEEMS like the most obvious pairing (Yutaka-Minami) at least to me is a red-herring seen through Hiyori's pervert eyes because neither girl even hints/teases an interest in another, wherein Konata's coy teases with Kagami are a lil' more than suspect, and "Nai Nai Nai" with Kaggie's anguished pine cinching it. I never expected yuri to be overt on a show seen by children too; now to really take off with what's subtly going on with Konata-Kagami requires a whole new adult-themed show -- maybe "Lucky Star: The College Years" -- IF KA becomes bold enough (unlikely unless they pass LS's rights to "The Simpsons" folks), or until desktop anime production makes and changes the whole scene (not really all that far away--yea!!), till then we just have to make do with _good_ text fanfiction to fill in the gaps and see the duo's unadmitted deeper relationship.

Hope that helps!

The point is... any yuri-festive relationship is never confirmed.. Whether you consider them friends or lovers is purely left to your feverish imaginations. I could take every "yuri" example and find perfectly non-yuri explanations for it. But those clues are there on purpose to make you think or wonder. Pure evil, eh?
