Lucky Star 17: The Melancholy of Hiiragi Kagami

Lucky Star

A pissed Kagamin is fine too.

Awww… poor Kagamin…. this episode she really had quite a lot of bad luck :X. The sibling quarrel part is just so nicely done. Sometimes, Lucky Star really resembles real life, more so than the other slice-of-life shows.

  • First, she suffers a streak of bad luck, forgetting her text book, dropping her books, finding nothing in the fridge to refresh herself, then going out to find shops closed only to forget her purse when she finds one to buy stuff… I’ve had times like this myself really, and I can almost feel Kagamin’s irritation.

  • The siblings quarrel part was pretty well done as well….

    First she gets blamed for not bringing the groceries home…

    This two sisters are really clumsy at expressing themselves.

    Jealous Kagamin.

    Kagamin getting praised and appreciated by Matsuri

    All’s well ends well ^^

    Maaa…. Kagamin… there’s always a good side and bad side to everything… remember, “The grass always looks greener on the other side.” ;).

  • Oh, and it was also Konata’s birthday in this episode as well…

  • “H…h..Here’s your present…. Konata.”

Lucky Channel this week was damn random… with Anime Tenchou making a guest appearance and totally messing things up.

Which was better than the ED…. Shiraishi doing his own version of Motteke! SE-RA Fuku!…. he totally sucks at singing fast… totally.

    You’re missing the shot of the girls in their Cats Eye costumes, which was referenced in Keroro Gunso, IIRc, with the “More Peach Summer” jokes.

    Still, a surly Kagamin is fine too. :D

    Matsuri is the sister. She was acknowledging that Kagamin played a part in helping her do the cooking as well.

    Hey, you didn’t say it but the 24 reference was too hilarious to be left behind ^_^

    Glad to see Konata finally ditched that old PS2 and rolled out some Wii action in this episode. Shiraishi Minoru is great, but yeah, this while “Shiraishi-stands-on-the-beach-and-tries-to-sing-random-ani-songs” deal is starting to wear a bit thin.

    After the last few episodes’ zaniness, it was nice to have something a little more down-to-earth, reminiscent of everyday things we all go through…like having a sucky day. Poor Kagamin.

    Was lazy to point out the references since they’re all pretty obvious anyways so it gets redundant… plus the fact I’ve not watched either 24 or Cat’s Eye, so meh.

    I didn’t notice that Yutaka and Konata was playing a Wii until my housemate pointed that out to me though… was pretty surprised.

    This must be the best episode ever. I’m glad that they’ve included less Haruhi references. Yet I was like “WTF?” when I found out that there was another Shiraishi ED…
