Well the amount of posts has slowed substantially since it got its own forum. I'm almost the only person who posts anymore I swear.

Just this one topic alone has more posts than some other series' entire forums here on AnimeSuki. That's enough to warrent some attention.

It seems that way because the posts are now spread out over several threads instead of confined to just one. Postings in the sub-forum seem to be about the same as they were before.

Things get their own forum if the traffic warrants..... sometimes a series has a huge initial surge of topics, gets its own forum, and then all you can hear are crickets and tumbleweeds (simply not much to say or some other shiny grabs hold) -- recent examples include kashimashi and Negima!?, both had this happen to them. The "goodness" is irrelevant.

However, Lucky Star is based on a rather popular 4-koma manga -- that plus hype from the production company involved stirred up a lot of curiousity at the least. The humor is subtle and at times mild so it may not be to everyone's taste.

I am guessing that a lot of folks now wait for their favorite sub before posting instead of jumping to the first RAW or speedsub available.

I for once, would not have been able to keep the posting pace I showed during the first two weeks.

Aye... I'm not watching the RAWs anymore... waiting for the subs.... therefore, not much to say after a day or two of over-analyzing what is basically a happy simple little show.

About the only thing that could be watched for non-moonspeaking people is the ED.
This week's ED rocks BTW ^^

LuckyChannel is sure taking their time...

You know, it's weird but after two epsiodes I'm already mulling over ideas for continuation stories.

And they're naughty. I feel shamed.

Imagine, after graduation, Kona, Miyuki and Tsukasa forming a manga circle, and after six years having had some success (Kona would be the writer, Miyuki the artist and business manager, and Tuskasa the shader/inker/typesetted). Just before Comiket, Kagami shows up at their doorstep havign been thrown out and abandoned by the slimeball she'd married. She's got to stay somewhere, and she is family -- even though she disapproves of her sister's choice of careers.

But when she joins the trio of their trip to Comiket, that's when she's in for a real shock. Although the trio are professionals who no longer sell doujinshi, they still go to Comiket to 'scout talent" -- or, rather, to cut loose and party. since nobody at Comiket knows they're up-and-coming mistresses of manga, they get to revel in their relative anonymity -- and Miyuki's fondness for "tutoring" young artists proves especially shocking for Kagami (who still has that ramrod up her *** when it comes to men and women, or women and women).

Could it be they're taking time to proofread first? That would be a shocker.
Not that I'd watch them even if they release first. LC dropped the ball on this series.

But I d/led Hayate this afternoon and am about to go watch it now, so I can wait another couple hours for my weekly moe-otaku fix.

welllllll, even a.f.k. makes mistakes.... the dentist sequence had some grammar errors even allowing for casual speech patterns. But yes, LC could probably use some editing and QC assistance. They've recently acquired some new help so they may be working out the kinks.

Well LC's is out now, so I guess ppl won't be complaining. XD

Still, ~36 hours after first raw available is still pretty speed if you ask me. I don't know why people are complaining in the first place. >_>

Spoiled by the record-breaking speeds of TWH-Sprocket and SS-Eclipse when they did Kanon 2006, no doubt.

Really? I was under the impression (mistaken or not) that it wasn't that popular a manga *shrugs*

Just out of interest what were these errors (genuine question). I'm sort of basing my personal softsubs on raws and a mixture of groups but mainly a.f.k. subs and I'd like to get any bugs ironed out. PM if you don't feel it's appropriate for this thread.

I never heard of a time when they made an anime out of an unpopular manga. However, there is a first time for everything.

The error was the grammatial construction using the possessive form of the word "dentist" (dentist's). First off, English is wierd and is full of odd exceptions -- that out of the way, the proper construction would have simply been (see 23:39 in the episode and the next minute or two):
"I'm pretty scared of the dentist myself." or "I'm pretty scared of the dentist's office myself" (the first being more conversational). a.f.k. appears to pride itself on localization rather than literalness (they usually provide implicit nouns that conversational japanese omits, for example).
There were several lines of dialog after that which also misused the possessive form.

There you have my grammar nazi presentation for the day (Some of my many jobs includes professional technical writing, part time translation proofing for japanese->english works, and grading student essays).

a.f.k. does stellar work so it just makes little errors stand out more

How in the world do you find time for everything? I'm barely able to keep up and I've only got school.

I had that same thought too, when I first read that. Or rather, they would be CLAMP if that were to happen. I honestly don't see that happening in the girls' future, but I still think it was a fun suggestion. XD
