Actually Shirashi is the saving grace of the anime for me. His antics are funny as hell. I am more annoyed with Haruhisque references or more like self masturbation which is done way too much in this anime especially in episode 16.

Second funny factor is Konata's father.

WTH? I saw some subs just minutes ago, speedsubs I think, and definitely not afk.

Anyways,

Kagamin FTW!

I loved the character development here, but I loved it when Yuu-chan was playing with the Wii!! Wii!! She looks so adorable as she's trying out the many ways to play with the Wii-mote.

I guess Konata got a Wii for her birthday, man I'd love to get one too, too bad it's still sold out here in the US.

In terms of the Wii, the situation isn't any better in Japan. I'm just glad I got mine at launch(in Canada).

I'm not sure what game they're playing though, perhaps a Virtual Console game?

I noticed them too, sadly there seems to be a bit of a problem downloading the episode...

What problem?

I didn't encounter any problems when I was downloading it...

And the thing is legit, no joke subs whatsoever, so go grab it if ya can't wait for afk's.

I'll be keeping afk's for them quality subs though

EDIT:

Just got done watching those subs...

They're surprisingly good for speedsubs!

I can't comment on the translation until afk puts their's out but it was pretty good.

My only complaint is the quality of the subs, the font colors were a bit rough but they're still readable.

And now for a bit of trivia:

EDIT #2:

The two girls who are inside the bus that Shiraishi is chasing are Tsukasa's and Akira's seiyuu respectively.



Kaori Fukuhara(Tsukasa) is the one on the left with the blue dress, and Hiromi Konno(Akira) is the one on the right with the white dress.

Kaori Fukuhara:


Hiromi Konno:


Big thanks go out to Kritios for pointing out my mistake!

I watched the sub and I didn't notice any translation problems. It seemed good overall. There were some thing I would rather've been translated differently, but that's common with all subs. No song lyrics, but that's not a big deal.

The "Guerrand" sub seems good to me. I've watched half of it, and haven't seen anything I thought was wrong, and have seen some neat ways of conveying things. The English is fairly natural-sounding, too. Good job.

If i were not wrong, Tsukasa's first choice is 営養学科, which should be nutrition science or dietetics.

I found it interesting that Lucky Star features a parody of Cat's Eye and it nearly coincides with the US release (conspiracy theorists, start your paranoia! ): AnimeOnDVD.com Review of Cat's Eye Vol. 1

Official Press Release: Broadcast and DVD Release of Orguss, Nobody's Boy Remi and Cat's Eye coming from ImaginAsian

Kagami episode... yummy.

And I guess I'm one of the few that still loves Shiraishi. I was laughing all the way through the ED. XD

And Anime Tenchou is gone! W00T! If it was anyone that was tiring, it would've been him for me.

I actually don't mind Guerrand's subs. For a 36 hour job, it's pretty darn good.

OT
WTF? Cat's eye has been licensed? God, I'm always the last one to know of these things. *runs off to buy his copy, hoping stores around him has it*

Just a small correction: It's actually Tsukasa and Akira's voice actors -- check the ED credits, or photos of Akira's actress.

Ahh, my mistake!

Is it just me or do both Hiromi Konno and Emiri Katou look similar? I swear, they really look the same!

But in any case, thanks for the correction! I'll edit it promptly.

wow i liked this ep quite a bit :3 highlight for me has to be the "sit com" like event where kagami gets mad at her sister ~ next up doing the silent treatment and ending with a kiss and a hug (not literally) ~ its is actually an accurate reflextion on my family (and others as well im sure) which make it all the more appealing :3

I enjoyed this much more than I'd expected to. Some of the material in the previous episode fell flat for me, but everything seemed to click this week. Huge props for the Hiiragi sisters' scene; other than a certain piece of music feeling too austere for the mood, I found it beautifully done and touching. I think this is the fourth week in a row that we've seen Matsuri and Inori, and I can't complain.

Actually, every sisterly interaction in this episode gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. Yutaka cheering Yui up with a cup of tea; Tsukasa greeting Kagami when she comes home from the store and riding out with her to buy the ingredients for dinner... and even though there's no blood relation involved, you can throw in Minami's adorable memory of tugging furtively at Miyuki's clothes (they're even wearing matching outfits).

Quick hits:

Konata's ability to name every single Pokémon borders on artistry--there are nearly five hundred now.

Somehow it doesn't surprise me that Miyuki gets mistaken for an OL.

Poor Tsukasa; sometimes it's better not to know just what's lurking in the refrigerator.

I had genuine laughs at the Shiraishi ED. I don't think this quite beats the shock factor of "Ore no Wasuremono," but I found it pretty funny.

---

Lots of people seem to have confirmed the Cat's Eye reference on the bus (thanks to Xiaolang for that). I think I can identify the other fictional premise that Konata dreams up for the Hiiragi clan, because that bit about four daughters and a mother waiting for a father's return in the olden days of America sounds a lot like Little Women to me.

At first I was kind of iffy on this--she doesn't read books, as this episode shows, so how would she know that story? But when I found out about the anime adaptations from the 80s, it started making a whole lot of sense. With Kona-chan being the particular brand of otaku that she is, I figure the odds are pretty good that she's seen one or both of those.

---

@ below: Heh, I fail as a trainer. I put in my share of play time with Blue ages ago when it was first released in NA, but skipped every subsequent iteration and spinoff until Pearl. My memory and my Pokédex both have gaping holes, it would appear.

If you play the games, it's not too difficult to memorize all the names since you see them over and over. The ones that don't appear all the time are legendary, and you get those even quicker. I played Yellow, Silver, Gold, and Crystal; even now years later, I still have all of them memorized.
