Eh, I’ve seen some pretty harsh reviews on Lucky ☆ Star on some other anime blogs. But to tell you the truth, I don’t think it’s that bad. Sure, the first two episodes weren’t exactly exciting or anything amazing. My opinion is that only strong otaku, such as myself (not that I’m obsessed or anything…), or people with a strong love for cute characters (… Such as myself…) should watch this anime.

Actually, I think that the reason why Lucky ☆ Star seems to get some backlash by some anime fans because Kyoto Animation is being too faithful to the 4-koma, and too faithful with some of their anime adaptions in general. I’d really like to see alot of differences between the anime and the 4-koma in this case (maybe the series expanding on the 4-Koma strips? Like expanding some of them into a whole 25 minutes? That would be hard though. :3)… it would surely be a different feeling from the other series produced by KyoAni. Another reason would be the hype it put out due to some joke scanlations of the 4-Koma… leading to the disappointed to the anime fans that the series isn’t what they’d thought it be. But meh, I like it just the way it is currently. Cute characters, sort of funny, something to pass the time, and giving me new outlooks on life… and the opening is really catchy (motte ike saigo ni wara chau no wa atashi no hazu~! ^^ Oh god… I’m turning into a weaboo :<).

So...
