Lucky Star Anime Review
Following the every day lives of Konata, Miyuki, Kagami and Tsukasa as they go through high highschool, homework, video games, and everything in between.
Lucky Star is a series that has a loose storyline, but does not deviate from the big picture. After viewing a few episodes, it follows more like that of Azumanga Daioh and Ichigo Mashimaro. This is a slice of life story that is realistic, and is full of skits all around. Some viewers may scrunch their eyebrows at the questions the main characters ask, and the discussions that follow, and there are some punchlines that may be dubious to comprehend, but it does not affect the story overall.Lucky Star is a series that will either get you hooked, or it won't. Konata, Kagami, Tsukasa, Miyuki, and the other characters of this show are likable, memorable, and are unique in their own, quirky, slackerish ways, and the punchlines can provide a nice laugh or two, or three, or more.Kagami Yoshimizu's 4-koma classic and Kyoto Animation takes a different approach to the formula used for slice-of-life shows like Ichigo Mashimaro and Azumanga Daioh, and applies other anime and manga shows, and makes it into a product all its own. The concept is well thought out, the art is what you would expect out of KyoAni, and while the situational music could be better off nixed, the opening and the phenomenon that followed has left an indelible mark, one that will make you want to watch it again and again.
I would highly reccoment this series.
