I guess there is a bit of whining there, but that was a huge slap in the face to him, so I think he has a right to feel aggrieved. I've never heard of a thing like that happening before.

But in fact, I don't think of it as whining so much as (a) self-deprecating humor, and (b) revenge. He's not exactly drawing attention to himself over it, since it is such a big deal that Japanese otaku all know about it, even if some casual fans don't.

There are lots of theories about the firing, and I don't know which, if any, is right: poor time management, poor budget management, talking back to his producers, refusing to do enough product placement, or what.

I was never bothered by "abrupt" transitions in Lucky Star, since it was like a string of sketches, anyway. I thought the particular combination of sketches in each episode worked, and I didn't mind that there weren't smooth transitions between them. In fact, I kind of prefer that to making up some fakey business to go from one to the other. Yamakan is cool and ironic and self-referential, so that we know that this is a fiction and we are sometimes shown the gears and levers.

I think what Yamakan has, mainly, is a great sense of humor and a deft touch in making the humor work in the storyboard and the animation. As well as a great feeling for matching movement and music in OPs/EDs/insert songs (SHnY concert).

The point is it was too obvious from the look who was the winner, so they decided it even before tasting. It was the first time they tried Nagi's cooking, so they couldn't have known (may be Gin should have doubted it with the way Nagi ate her Miso soup ) Also even if it tasted weird, it was still edible (unlike Zange's dish), and as long as Zange doesn't win, it's the same

Recently started and i haven't had so much fun with a show since.. well, don't know. But it's great.

Truth be told though.. it was way better when there wasn't any "real" plot. I hope it stays on this level.

Isn't that called development? They could probably do an episodic OVA after the series though, to explore the everyday life interactions between the dynamic duo... that'll interesting, like the first few episodes.
