You forgot Darker Than Black

But I think it might be a bit soon to see a big brand like Coca-Cola in such an ota show like Lucky Star.
Who knows...I would definitely get that SODA if i could though

Just watched on air.

Overall not that impressive, but stable. Konata's unique deeds and thoughts on okaku things, and Kagami's pragmatic attitude really shined on the former half of the episode.

I didn't like the latter half that much, but still enjoyable. Nyamoo-shaped fireworks!

And the ED part...
"Ma'am, I know you’ve wanted THIS!"
Now I must admit I underestimated Shiraishi...

Spoiler for reference image:
That's Fukuhara Kaori (Tsukasa-chan).

For the first six minutes, Tsukasa-chan was basically a cardboard character.

Kagamin: Why are all these bishoujo game protagonists female magnets?
Kona-chan: Otherwise there'll be no story.

Kagamin: Why do all these bishoujo game heroines have no boyfriend?
Kona-chan: Otherwise there'll be no story.

So true, LOL. (Also shivers at hearing all of Kona-chan's bishoujo game girls sounding like Orochimaru from Naruto, since they're all voiced by Kujira. )

Poor Miyuki (or as the 2ch fans like to call, "Mi-WIKI") going to the dentist.

Tsukasa-chan bragging to Kona-chan about how her art homework won in a competition, thanks to her dad. At first he only helped out a bit, but then he got more and more passionate and ended up taking over completely. LOL

Wonder if that Haruhi endorsed SOS Brigade drink is actually on sale in Japan?

Yu-chan asking about what present her friend should give for her boyfriend's birthday, but she's asking the wrong girls. (All three are STILL single, amazingly. )

Yu-chan shocked and at a lost after realizing that she's still on last name terms with Minami (got too used to calling her "Iwasaki-san"), until Minami saves the day once again.

Soujirou: Kona-chan, you're free to do what you like. Daddy won't stop you.
Kona-chan: Then maybe I should go find myself a boyfriend.

The fireworks scenario:

- Tsukasa-chan bumping into the station turnstiles "NANJAKORYAA!?"
- The girls only now realize Miyuki and Minami are neighbours
- Still amazed Miyuki's klutzy mom Yukari managed to survive in today's world
- Poor Hiyorin, apparently Minami's doggy doesn't like otakus too much
- Yu-chan lying her head on Minami's lap = pure win

Shortest Lucky Channel ever seen. Finally, even Ono Daisuke has appeared, replacing poor Shiraishi as assistant, as Shiraishi is on a suicide mission to the haunted forest under Mt Fuji, lol.

Akira-sama: So you're not a crow this time, huh? - Referring to Ono's role as Sora the crow in AIR (I won't go into AIR spoilers here, so don't worry).
Ono: And you aren't a dog either. - Referring to Akira-sama's seiyuu, Konno Hiromi's role as Potato in AIR.
Akira-sama: Piko~ - Potato's trademark sound LOL

Four of the five SOS Brigade members have made appearances in Lucky Star now, with two as regular casts. All that's left is Gotou Yuuko.

Shiraishi's (the live action one) dancing ED was hilarious, that's all I'll say.

Overall, things didn't pick up until the second half. So 9/10, guess it can't be helped as I've already seen three superb eps in a row.

Just watched it... love it. Another 10 from me.

Spoiler for Spoiler yo:

As for what was the drink... well, the can looked like Coke, but I think it's a parody of a coke commercial. I just can't find which one (neither can the 2ch set). Soda is not big at all in Japan. You'll be hard-pressed to find Soda in a a Conbimi.  You'll find stacks of teas, sports drinks, coffee, yogurt drink and other fancy stuff, but not that many Soda on the shelf. This is why the two most recent anime drinks are Eva Coffee and Mikuru Tea.

Similar to Korea last I was there - most places had a small section for soda (I love the skinnier, taller shape of soda cans there, btw; I can actually wrap my hand completely around one of them ) and the rest of the aisle would be given to all the other juices and things. However I wouldn't say it's hard to find soda in Korea -- many vending machines carried the same sodas you find here, just with the logo all mashed up in Korean.

In particular I really like sports and yogurt drinks, and occasionally I'll drink the cold coffee. (I also love the kids drinks that are shaped like certain characters... Hello Kitty and Pokémon drinks! XD )

Cute Yutaka x Minami scene. I also liked the part where they made the transition to given names.

Cute preview. Poor Misao.

That ED... It both made me chuckle and want to shoot Shiraishi in the face.

I totally understand Izumi-jiji, and Konata's boyfriend.

Aaaah, mosquitoes. I wish I could forget them but the over one hundred bites I had during my trip in cambodia + thailand just didn't help.

Just to say that the both scenes related to them echoed my feelings back in that time.

I wasn't very happy with Ono Daisuke's one minute (or even less) on Lucky Channel, though the crow mention made my day --- along with Potato.

Ahh, Konata hunting for rare items even IRL, can't beat that..but there isn't that much collectable random stuff in normal countries!

I doubt Yutaka x Minami goes any further in the anime, there is no romance in Lucky Star, if there were they'd have to make enough of it to satisfy all sorts of fans (only romance in the anime a "rotten world" one = no good )

And mosquitoes, they're very much a pest in where I am, but by October I become immune to the infectuous effcets of mosquito stings. Wish the immunity kept up over the winter, too.

Brilliant episode. All the girls got their screentime.

I know it's not just me continuously noticing this but I'm liking how each episode the background characters are getting more and more detailed. I assume in the last episode everyone will be rich in color.

Next episode preview is great too. More Misao and Ayano please!

Lucky Star is back to hopping around as though the storyboard has Tourette's. *sigh* Oh, well. Not really any moments I found outstanding, but there was a lot of good, and the low periods weren't boring. I confess I had some warm fuzzies when the entire group was finally together.

My reaction to the Haruhi commercial was as follows.

"What's cleavage doing in my Lucky Star?!...Oh, it's Haruhi...OK, now I'm feeling Kaioshin-rage, this is TOO MUCH--and Haruhi's breasts are not so enormous as that... Oh, it seems to be self-satire...I can live with that, but I could have done without it."

The Air references in Lucky Channel were great, but I was so tired when I saw it, I couldn't figure out what they were referencing! I'm a huge fan of Air, so I'm very ashamed of myself, but I'm blaming it on the fact that I hadn't had my nap.

Did anyone else notice that cool fat green bird with the Char (from Gundam) mask in Konata's room? It was in the last episode as well. I really think it's funny and cute. It's kind of like Kagami's Bonta-kun.
