    Hi!


    I've been watching the new anime series from Kyoto Animation - Lucky Star - and it's awesome.

    If you like Azumanga Daioh, this is in a similar vein - a slice-of-life show with loads of parodies and references buried within.

    For example, these images are from the latest episode (6):

    It looks like she's driving a different-enough-to-the-real-thing-to-avoid-licensing-issues Binaltech Smokescreen!

    (Heh, I wish he could transform and slide across the finishing line!)

    Anyone else checking it out?

    Sorry but that looks nothing like Smokscreen. I can't tell, but it looks like a K Car type. Kinda like a Suzuki Alto Works.

    It's the only anime I'm watching right now. It's so much fun! And so very moe...

    Episode 6 eh? Cousin Yui looks...possessed... (and obviously doing a parody of Initial D) I'll post some pics that are more a bit more akin to what the anime is like. (These are from Episode 5, subbed by A.F.K.)

    Still doesn't really do it justice though, but at least now the art style is evident.

    The only other current series I'm watching is Nagasarete Airantou - it's not bad either!

    (And I assumed that the car was deliberately distorted not to look like an Impreza - I missed the K car thing...)

    I'm probably not ever going to watch that show, I'm not that kind of audience, but that's some really kickass work on computer graphics.

    I found it cute but kind of boring. Watching high school girls talking about how to eat pasty for 10 minutes? Never mind they look like they're in elementary. I did like the blue haired gaming girl :) 

    The opener, though. That's a work of art.

    You should try the next few episodes - the show gets better each time.


    I loved all of the episodes so far, personally, but I guess I can see why 1 might have been a turn-off. It'd be a shame to misso ut on the rest of it!

    And definitely watch the Initial D scene.

    I wish they actually looked 17 as well, though.

    So sad the possibility of a Second Season will never come to fruition :C

    BTW Episode 22 will definitely pull at your heart strings. For something as simple as a 4Koma adapted into an Anime, it's actually quite deep.
