Holy Crap, the art on the English Lucky Star DVD Volume 1 is "amazing". And by amazing I actually mean could they have spared us the chicken scratch much? Obviously they are going with some weird gimmicky angle what with the childrens drawing and Hiragana. I could have made done this to be perfectly honest.

They're actually using the covers of some of the Japanese Regular Editions for those, so at least it's not like it's something they just made up. I believe the covers of the Japanese Limited Editions will be included in there in some fashion (whether it's reversable covers, or what). It's definitely unique, though...

They basically switched the covers around so that the japanese limited edition-covers are the regular edition-ones in the US and vice versa. It's really annoying in my opinion, because those crayon-scribbles suck. I guess they're kinda funny, but having something like that on my shelf... glad it'll just be inside the box, so I won't have to look at it that much. I'd take generic anime-style artwork over these things any day.

Hi!

It's my understanding from other LS boards that that cover art is supposed to be the drawing of a pissed-off Kagami drawn by Konata. I don't know whether it was lifted from the manga, but apparently that's why it looks the way it does.

yeah, (from the manga) that's a variation on Kona drawings of Kagami.... though the one I remember is much more wild (fire-breathing Kagami).

Not exactly something to cause the title to fly from the shelves though... :/

Retail Price:$64.98Your Price:$48.74
Please tell me that is the DVD+BOX price with some idiot "getto" inside because that's a pretty ridiculous price otherwise. The SHnY LE box was really quite cool (like a jewelry box with drawers). I'm guessing this is just as elaborate?

I've looked around the interwebs and it looks like it's coming bundled with a 6-DVD size art box:

as well as
  • "Motteke Sailor Fuku" Opening CD
  • Konata Character CD
  • Girl’s School Uniform (Winter) Print T-Shirt
  • Chocolate Cornet Screen Wipe
  • Alternate DVD Cover

Certainly seems to merit the price tag imo, in fact if they were released them at the same time in the UK i'd wager it would be a lot more expensive. I'm sure when it inevitable gets released here, the pricetag of the non-limited edition with no features will be double the price. At least.

Mmm. Wonder what Kona did that so ticked Kaggie off this time! (does the brandishing broom hint that somebody's a witch??) Say, but isn't violence and anger unbefitting a Miko? Like Konata seriously needs some art lessons! Wish I knew which manga chap it came from!

Forget the tee-shirt; I'm trying to picture a "Chocolate Cornet Screen Wipe". Wouldn't that be kinda messy for the screen??

The broom is there because Kagami is also a miko at her family's shrine, and the miko sweep the shrine with brooms to keep it clean. I'm sure that the angry doodle is just a satire of the "tsun" part of tsunderekko Kagamin.

If by "they" you mean the Japanese production team, because the DVD cases are identical as the Japanese ones except for the translation to "Lucky Star". All of the Normal Edition DVDs of the Japanese release were in this style, while the Special Editions had a basic picture on, like the US Normal Edition does. We're getting the same DVD boxes, but the Special Edition and Normal Edition boxes are switched around so that the illustrated ones are the Special Editions in the US release.
You can see them on all YesAsia (I love the Yui-chan one best, but I'm biased), here's the Japanese Normal Edition Volume 1 box, which as you can see, is identical:

So it's not, really, a 'weird gimmicky angle', is it? They're being faithful to the original Japanese release cases, which I think is honourable. I personally love the illustrated boxes, I think they're really unique, and if they'd changed them to plain box art like on the US Normal Edition I would have been dissapointed.

Hi!

Hmmm... you're taking me somewhere I don't wanna go!

I sympathize with Konata's deficit, but then with that near tomboy attitude it probably doesn't bother her all that much or else she'd saved up all the bucks she spent on video games and treated herself to a boob job on her eighteenth birthday...

I dunno. That shirt might fly with Japanese girls, who seem generally not as well-endowed as girls here in America, but I don't think it has a chance with even fan girls here. Like, Hannah or Britany's or Lindsay's appeal wouldn't have gotten too far bouncing minus cups, and most guys aren't all that blind (or fair) to flatties yourselves!

Put it this way; I'd expect it to appeal to American girls the same way guys here would be to men's briefs sporting roughly the same message. Hope that's not too graphic!

You're missing Konata's point with her slim looks and her attitude. In Japan (and other places), girls like her are often prized for their "specialness". She's actually pretty proud of her looks - and it certainly scores her points at the cosplay cafe.

As far as "endowed" ... Japanese females run about 30-50lbs lighter than "girls in America" (by which I'll assume you actually meant certain populations of non-Asian Americans since there's a lot of women of asian descent in America)... so naturally proportions will vary.

Someone who weighs less than 100 pounds will probably not be running a "D" cup -- though I do remember one little Latino girl in my high school who was quite spectacular though she had to stretch to beat 5 feet in height.

Well, I was mostly citing the (generally American) male attitudes in the non-appeal of flatness and the non-envy of being less than curvy among most females here (of almost every age it seems) . Sometimes it seems that even beyond language Japan and America are truly different worlds! (pastries more pop than burgers??). But you brought up a good mention about her cafe life which I should check out the manga about I guess.

Toast 4 Lucky Girls with Sake! (It Sure Ain't Kool-Aid!)


The Fujinoi Sake company will offer a special consignment of Urusei Yatsura sake based on Rumiko Takahashi's manga on April 10. The bottle labels will naturally feature the manga's Lum-chan character. The same company previously offered four Sakagura Ikkoku-kan ("Ikkoku Apartment Building's Wine Cellar") seasonal sake bottles based on Takahashi's Maison Ikkoku manga. The Canned Dog blog notes that the Sake no daimasu company will offer Junmaishu Toyoake Lucky Star sake on March 25. The bottle will only be sold the company's store in Satte, the hometown of the main character Konata of Kagami Yoshimizu's manga and anime.

Cheers!!!
