I think I actually remember a similar scene in an avatar someone was using around here a long time ago.

That's good to hear, I have not guess-traced in a long while, it wouldn't hurt to try it out again.

Once I finish my current trace I may very well give this one a try.

I have a little question ^^;

I've only seen the anime, and I've never read the manga.

So, I was wondering, is the manga as random as the anime, or does it have some plot to it?

I only have volume 4 and have only seen scanlations of the other volumes, but yeah, it's really random. It's made up of 4-panel comic strips, and you can't stick too much plot in those; think of a 4-panel comic you'd see in the newspaper - the "plot" is set up like those.

Ah, I see ^^

How many pages does a single volume contain, in average? Since they're only 4-panel comic strips, there should be a lot of random stuff in there. o.o;;

Each volume is about 150 pages ... and yes, there's a Huge Amount of material (which is why I'm a bit ambivalent about the time Lucky*Channel subtracts from the main content ).

So it airs at midnight? Odd time for an anime...(or is it? I'm not familiar with Japan TV schedules)

Anyways thanks a lot

Actually in Japan only popular anime airs during daytime / prime time on the "usual" channels. Canvas 2 and many others (anime that gets more or less otaku'ish or is "not for everyone") are shown during night, that's why Konata is always watching tapes, not the actual translations (放送はTranslationだよね~ まっ、いっかw).

There's some legend that decades ago, the japanese commissioned a British research group to determine the best time to air anime..... They came back with UTC times that were misinterpreted as Japan local time.

Probably not true but somewhat amusingly Dilbert-like. ....

After midnight also allows them to be more adult and/or risque in their presentations of anime.

Most logical explanation will be that the prime time slots have been already been paid for by mainstream show that will be watched by the masses and thus generate lots of profit.

Anime, unless those sponsored and produce by big names, are generally meant for the niched markets. Those late night slots are ideal since they are cheap.

Quite right. There's another little fact that makes it more profitable than we might think (that I'm sure MakubeX2 knows): The target audience for most anime that ends up running late night/early morning is also the sort that's dedicated enough to either stay up or record it!

The majority of TV viewers are "casual" viewers, and while they might become rabid about a certain program, watch TV because it's a convenient way to waste time, and wouldn't watch if it took any extra effort. We watch programs because we are fans, and are willing to put in the effort (and money, and time, and... etc).

Lucky Star - References

I've just discovered Lucky Star at Anime North! Even though I'm not really understanding and even picking up on all the references I'm still loving it. I've heard that the group WinD explains references, but I've also heard that AFK is the better group to go with (even though they don't really explain those). Is it possible for someone to create a thread where people can explain the references in each episode for people like me?

I'll put in a cheer for EnA's fansubs... they just seem to strike a nice balance between "translating conservatively" and providing enough context so you understand most of the jokes.

We tried a "reference thread" I think... part of the problem is that many of the viewers see more references than there really are (mistaking parts of every day japanese life for significant references to some favorite anime or not realizing that the anime is simply adapting what is in the manga many times).

Well this post should be on the thread request page, but I just wanna ask if ever all the Lucky Star characters are introduced will Shiraishi Minoru and Konata's Dad be added on the poll? Since their the only guys there that has the most air time and character development...though Minoru seems to be always been abused by Akira

The current poll is only for the main characters. Another poll listing all characters will be made after all the characters have been introduced.
