Random things I noticed after watching Lucky Star 04 subbed.

Lucky Star

1. Early in the episode, Kagamin asks Konata how’d she get her job when a waitress is supposed to have a nice figure, but Konata pokes back with a line from a game saying that “Flat chests are a rarity!”. Later, there’s a poster of Mayumi nicely decorating her room.

2. In one of the scenes where she’s trying to study, there’s a figurine on her desk that reminds me of the Genki-Dama skill Goku used to kill Buu in the Dragonball manga.

3. Konata watches Haruhi but the episode is set in summer. Haruhi only lasted 13 episodes and was aired during Spring 06. This means that she couldn’t have watched it, timeline-wise.

4. At the end of the episode, Konata comments that Y******* is cutting corners with the long winded Nagato scenes. Right after that… the screen blacks out for a while, depicting Konata unable to sleep. Also… thinking back, is this some form of foreshadowing?

5. Konata’s notebook when she’s wondering for the new menu for her workplace has the “Kame” sign of Muten Roshi from Dragonball.

    “3. Konata watches Haruhi but the episode is set in summer. Haruhi only lasted 13 episodes and was aired during Spring 06. This means that she couldn’t have watched it, timeline-wise.”

    Maybe KyoAni’s trying to subtlely tell us that their characters buy the series DVDs?

    The spring anime season runs from April to June, and the last episode of Haruhi didn’t air until early July, so there’s no contradiction there. Though if you take “long-winded Nagato scenes” to refer to episode 5, which aired in early May, you might have something…

    Maybe they’re showing reruns of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu?

    Episode 5 aired on May 28th. If I remember correctly, uniform change occurs right after Golden Week (covered in Episode 3.)

    Add: When Konata showed the twins her birthday presents, she had two different plastic bags of blue and orange – according to my seasoned otaku friend, those are an obvious reference to Animate and COSPA or something to that effect.

    The Nagato reference was to episode 9 (14), when there is a three minutes scene of Nagato reading while a radio plays in the background.

    Check out Lucky Channel’s sub. They provide explanations each time a reference comes out. I think there was at least 10 in episode 4…

    When staring Kagami eating the birthday cake, Konata’s face looks like Haruhi when she lost the draw lot.

    The 120% percent at the beginning of lucky channel got anything to do with D.N.A.² ?

    Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu? FMP TSR? Kyo-Ani really put too much in to this series…. Too much…

    LOL. More references that I didn’t notice. Darn. I gotta increase my OQ (Otaku Quotient). And what Konata said is true. Airports are status symbols.
