Oh dont worry, It's not as if I am mad or anything. I was just mentioning that bit about myself as a side comment of sorts.

Here's hoping for a better Lucky Channel, next week!

That conversation was after the seafood noodles. They got soggy after Konata read manga to pass the time, which was during the frame with the seafood noodles. ^^;

I still think it was intentional (the switch from curry to seafood flavors). I haven't watched the subs yet (so I don't know exactly what she says at that point), but I can't think that they would accidently change the flavors. The cups of ramen are one of the main focuses of the scenes (they're not part of the background), and they're pretty detailed.

For the record... I like seafood, but I hate seafood flavored ramen.

You have to add actual seafood bits (like faux crab) to make it passable. I'll often just use a bit of the packet and add furikake, some chili pepper, faux crab, and maybe peas or broccoli bits to enhance the ramen in Iron Chef fashion

Totally random: I think I just grokked why twin tails are so sexy to me.... it exposes the back of the neck (he said while choosing a hairstyle for his draenei in WoW .... how completely geeky I am today...).

Those were two completely different instances where Konata made cup noodles. On the first time, she thought those 3 minutes were too long. The second time she went for a cup, she took manga along to pass the time. That didn't work out well.

The dialogue said "I'll use this to kill time today" on the Seafood scene, indicating that this is a different day.

I. Love. Japanese. Seafood. Ramen. But Americanized ramen had a crappy seafood flavor where they thought shrimp and shrimp sauce is all there is. The Asian kind had faux crab and faux cuttlefish...Asian ramen all tend to have better toppings. I hate Americanized crap...every bit of it.

You are correct: It's not an accident.

It's two different instances. The first is when she reflects on how long it seems to take, and the second is when she decides to read a manga to kill the time.

For the unbelievers, watch for the different shirt and listen for the "今日は" when she's reclining to read the manga.

Parts of this episode seems to return to some of the awkward timing and jump cuts we saw earlier in the series (although overall I think it's still better). In addition, it seems to be more "series of random 4koma"-ish than the last few episodes, which had a bit more of a coherent flow. The character models also seem slightly different (a little rounder, a little more angled and elastic), so I imagine that the staff for this episode was different.

Edit: Dangit, Claies, I would have beat you to the punch if I hadn't decided to type out the rest of my thoughts, too!

Aye on the "american ramen" (who the hell eats the 'picante chicken' ramen they sell??).

We usually either get the basic noodle packs (no extras other than the sodium death packets) from Costco and add our own toppings. Or we shop at the local Uwajamiya in their "amazing collection of East Asian wierdness" noodle packages. Those cost a bit more but 'wierdly amazing' makes up for it.

My brother used to get really weird flavors of instant ramen and they all tasted pretty disgusting. For things like cup noodles, I'll just stick with the regular chicken/beef/shrimp flavored kinds. Recently, I'd rather just go to a Japanese restaurant and get $6-$10 ramen, I prefer to avoid those death-in-a-cup meals, and I'm a college student.

Yeah, I also thought that this episode was a bit on the meh side. I can't wait when Konata and the gang all become third years. That's when all the fun begins.

If you're looking at packs, I recommend Nissin's Demae Itcho...it looks like this:
http://www.mandom5354.com/tour/noodle/21.JPG

They released this line to Hong Kong decades ago, and I've grown up with them. They are unspeakably awesome. Thankfully I found those in markets near where I live.

They come in a huge variety of flavors, like Original (basically soy sauce-like), Beef, Chicken, Shrimp, Pork, Satay, Curry, Tonkotsu (pork bones), Miso Ramen, etc. They even have a line of udon and stir-fried (lo mein) packs out.

If you spot those (probably in a Chinese market), I definitely recommend a try. They have perfect English printed on them, so they're quite easy to take care of.

Ive tried that brand before, its pretty good. Usually when i eat japanese ramen I'll either eat that brand or a korean version of ramen. I like packet versions more than cup versions though. Although i guess sometimes you dont get much of a choice =\

Ramen is what gets us college students through the year. :B

I prefer Korean ramen (I love spicy fire-in-mouth ramen), and I also prefer the packets to the bowls. My favorite is Samyang's Sutah Ramen... the noodles are hand-made (instead of using a machine), and I think it makes the noodles a little more tender.. however, it's not a huge difference from regular ramen noodles. I really dig the spicy soup flavor. <3

The Shin Ramen (which is also shown on the same page) is, IMO, the spiciest package ramen I've ever had. The soup flavor is pretty good, too.

Nanafan, welcome.

My thoughts on this ep:

1. Wonderful bit of melancholy determination with Sensei and the cake.

2. Yui's husband is in for a surprise all right -- a very, very drunken surprise unless she somehow has access to Instant Sobriety Pills. I just hope she doesn't end up getting sick to her stomach at an extremely inconvenient time....

3. "You gonna cosplay as Miko this year" to the girls who actually are miko.... Even Kona-chan can display lack of clue. and Kagami's explanantion of why her faily does Christmas neatly ties in with the classical view of eastern religiousness; their main faith may be Shinto, but they seem to practice a little of everything. Which is another reason I would be extremely surprised were Lucky Star to be a big hit in Iran. (Although stranger things have happened, like Islamists carrying posters of Haruhi-sama in their demonstrations.)

I'm pretty sure I've seen those at my local asian grocery store, I'll give them a try. Thanks for the tip.

@Risaa: I've become a recent fan of Korean fare (my son's debate coach was raised by Korean mom and she's always on the hunt for Korean restaurants when we're at tournaments). May have to give that a shot as well since I'm a fan of extremely spicy things.

Kagami and Tsukasa in their miko garb are just the mind-blowingly cutest things. If they tipped in Japan, Kona would just rake in the dough at Christmas cosplay

I can vouch for their quality, and I must say... it is weird to see you people treat them as "exotic fare" when they are basically sold EVERYWHERE over here.

[Just like Pocky... that damn thing is so common here, it boggles my mind that people "worship" it so much. There are much better Japanese snacks out there, like "Hello Panda"]

Cheers.

I'd offer you a "chicken fried steak", "grits", "biscuits'n'gravy", and "fried okra" but it'd probably be an insta-kill on your arteries.'

Its not so much that its "exotic" but that it just can be hard to find. American groceries have gotten to where they have absolutely pathetic selections of even local foods unless you head for the organic.natural.worldfood boutique groceries like WholeFoods, New Seasons, or Uwajamiya. At my house, we cook dishes that are japanese, chinese, indian, italian, german, mexican, etc. We're always on the look out for a new dish to try

I agree Pocky is over-rated as a taste treat, we'll use them as stocking stuffers at Yuletide. Fortunately, Uwajamiya has an entire aisle dedicated to "junky snack foods of asia" so there's lots to try. I'm more fond of the nori crackers and related crunchy stuff myself.
