Even though I really wanted to see a Shining Finger attack, I still gave it 10.

Operation Comiket mission orders = 1
Haruhi and FMP references = 1
Haruhi and FMP images = 1
Nico Robin = 1
Chihara Minori = 1
Chou Nekketsu Animate Tenchou = 1
Tomokazu Sugita = 1
Tomokazu Showdown = 1


The comiket segment alone already gave me at least an 8, I guess its 1 for the 2nd half and 1 more for Lucky Channel.

I'm sure I laughed at more parts than what I've mentioned, so I know my scoring system is not accurate.

Am I the only the one that sees a double layered Shakugan no Shana reference?

Hmm...

If I could give this episode a 20 out of 10, I would. It's that good.

Not sure if it has been mentioned but...

When Sugita said: Nani ka... Buki ga nai no ka? (Anything I can use as a weapon?)

Its directly from our favourite Data Entity showdown.

EDIT:

I couldn't find any Shana reference, I need some enlightenment.

If you're talking about what they were wearing in episode 5 (the summer festival), they were wearing yukata, which are different from your standard kimono in that they're lighter and much more comfortable. (Myself, I have a purpley yukata with goldfish on it. X3)

I see Yuuko, but I really can't make anything out on the right side of the poster... so blurry.

Well I certainly can't score points for the Haruhi references anymore as those have run there course and are pretty much just another part of the show now, but when I do the review on my blog tonight I'll see what I can come up with.

Looking at this list, Chihara Minori is never a good thing (bland bland voice acting), I was hoping we could go most of the anime without her presence, but I guess now is the time unfortunately. Tomkazu Sugita will definitely score points for his appearance because that is the only way I could see him get pummeled by Anime Tenchou. Operation Comiket was good to as it seemed more like a war plan then casual safety instructions. Nico Robin was just surprising as that's a Toei license and it's rare to see any mention (I can't really call them direct references as they just kind of pop up) of anything outside of the usual Haruhi and Kanon ones, for that I might be able to award some effort points.

Finally... got to see ep 12.

The convention sequence was entertaining but I found the last part of it just completely boring (the card product battle)... sorry, just wasn't amusing to me. I did love the precursor where Kagami had to translate for Kona while using her for a ledge and the military style attack on the convention by Kona (I do that myself ). Poor Tsukasa and fabulous Kagami expressions.

On the other hand, I give the temple sequence and the New Year's sequence a *15* if the numbers went up that high. That is core purity Lucky Star material.

And <drumroll> I thoroughly enjoyed L*C for a change

You'll probably get it too. Odds are it will be on sale soon enough. Seriously don't be all that surprised when a link to it turns up in the Merchandise thread.

Edit: Oh wait it's already there. Oh well....that was quicker than usual.

Hmm...didn't kj1980 mention earlier in this thread that this was a reference to Amuro from Gundam?

Can't remember the exact scene from Gundam myself but it did sound like Sugita was impersonating Amuro's voice there.

He did a pretty poor job then. I get the reference to the discovery of the Beam Saber (He had a shield and no practical way to engage the Zaku beyond smashing it with the shield), but he sure didn't sound like Tohru Furuya if that's what he was going for.

Well, watched the episode, and like many have said, the part about Kagami picking that manga was the best part of the whole deal.

Although more than her reactions, it was how she got around to grab the manga what got me laughing in the first place.

Lucky channel was so short, that I didnt have time to decide if it was good or not.

I thought it might have been that scene - when Amuro first climbs into the RX-78 right? Thanks for that.

As for Sugita's impersonation, I thought it was good but then i don't hate the guy like you seem to do.

Reasonable ep. Some funny moments and, as usual, some moments that just went completely over my head. In all the Lucky Star eps, this ranks somewhere in the middle.

I'm with Vexx, the seiyuu "joke" was boring and pointless. It did the same sort of thing as the last Anime Tenchou joke... it built itself up and then fizzled into an anti-climax. It was another case of a reference-for-the-sake-of-a-reference, and one gets fairly used to that from this show by now, but I certainly wouldn't list them among the things that makes Lucky Star appealing.

A few redeeming moments, but nothing I saw in this ep has made me change my opinion of this show, ie, it's hit-and-miss.

Finally saw it.

Comiket half (you know...absolutely nobody in a typical American audience would understand this):
Kagami on Konata. 'Nuff said. Is it just me or did anyone feel that there's something really tragic coming along when Konata put down the phone during cleaning?

I seriously expected a lot of fun in a Comiket-centered episode. Sadly, my predictions traditionally end up with completely opposite outcomes (that explains me being really pessimistic). Military Konata is a good start for the half, complete with Konata mecha sounds. Then again, this military objective pattern is exactly what I do when I go out buying things. Sad thing is I completely suck at wandering around. Those female booth attendants with that freaky man voice is just infinitely creepy.

Okay, maybe it's because I got spoiled, but I didn't find Kagami's yaoi experience that funny. It was just cute and pure doujin fodder. The real question, though, is if this is her first time with yaoi, how did Kagami miss it on her first time around? (Or did she not?)

Believe it or not, the Akira stand was the only part where I laughed out loud. I love how all of her most hyped events end up flat dead. Then I see the seiyuu skit , which was, to popular opinion, pretty dumb. So far, Initial D is the only "glamour scene" that had me laughing. The others just aren't as good.


New Year's half:
First things first, Sochirou's creepiness is hitting a new high. What's best in this half, though, is how much Kagami wished to be with everyone else (wait...she threw out Konata). Does Kagami think of Konata as sort of a tool (you know...for understanding) that she doesn't want to be seen using? Or did she not mention Konata because she unconsciously took her for granted already?

The rest isn't funny nor cute.

7/10. Lowest for L*S so far. It just wasn't very cute, funny, or open-ended enough for my imagination. Plus, the novelty effect didn't do well on me this time around.

Kagami seems to be functionally unable to admit Kona is probably her best friend outside of her sister. That's a bit of a tragedy for her because in her mind... admitting that would mean admitting she's 'not a mainstream girl'.

I don't know that I would rank Sochirou's behavior as creepy so much as bittersweet. The guy really has no bad intentions... he's just swept up in the moe of the shrine maiden mystique and beautiful young things. Kagami herself is forced to admit that some of the mystique of shrines revolves around miko. Gut feel is that he'd never want some old guy to hit on Kona so he would never do that himself.

Hmmm, actually I would think any American who'd been to or seen a fan convention would pretty much know the routine (whether it be a sci-fi, anime, gaming, sports, tradeswap, or other fan-focused convention). But someone who hasn't been a fan might just be confused. I agree that the "glamour sequence" (nice phrase ) was really underwhelming.
