Many anime fans who complain this anime. I don’t know why that is obvious, they always assume the same arguments. Like “What the fuck, there’s no plot?” or “This fucking show has no pointless to show.” Those are the anime fans complaints about this anime. Actually, why? Do they not read the synopsis before you started watching or look at the genre, please? After all, this is a slice of life, not a fucking mainstream anime.
“Lucky☆Star,” tells about four friends who attend school at Ryōō High School. These four are Izumi Konata (Aya Hirano), Kagami Hiiragi (Emiri Katou), Tsukasa Hiiragi (Kaori Fukuhara), and Miyuki Takara (Aya Endou).
Alright, that’s the synopsis. Short, dense and clear. But what makes this anime so interesting? This anime is very relaxing to watch, ranging from conversations about food, hobbies, and so forth. The things discussed by this anime is very striking for our daily lives. Like for example, making a voice in front of the fan to make it sound like a robot, Japanese culture, otaku daily life, and others.
Konata is an interesting otaku. Her father also has the same hobby for generations. Her own class teacher is also an Online Game Addict and an online friend. The story is also no less exciting with other anime. The character has a unique drawing made like a chibi. The Slice of Life and Comedy section are also very interesting, although this anime more focus on daily life so comedy is minimal. As I said earlier, this anime has no main story. So you are only seeing short stories with conversations that make you laugh. There is also cultural information and sometimes also incorporating other anime into the core of the story or arguably, Parody. For example Code Geass, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Gundam, Vocaloid, and so on.
Sound, BGM, and Sound Effect are very nice to hear let alone relaxing time scene. The passionate of opening with strange but pleasant lyrics. The ending can be considered very strange and interesting. The first episode until the 14th, we will be prepared vocals from Konata and friends. Until episode 15 to the end, there is an appearance that either what might be a producer or a hilarious seiyuu. Before heading to the ending, there is also something interesting that is Lucky Channel, an additional show and a little information about Lucky Star. Sometimes their conversations are very strange.
Overall, for casual anime fans or slice of life maybe you can watch this anime. Not recommended for someone who just wants to find a plot or something. Although like that, this anime is also included in my favorite slice of life anime list.
