Lucky Star is one of the few on my "made it" list. I tried many times to purchase each individual dvd at approx $20 each. But I couldn't do it. At 6 volumes plus the OVA, that's ~$130, which is the cost of many brand new box sets with additional swag and a nice box to store it in.
This past saturday I attended Sakura-Con here in Seattle, and a few vendors were selling this product for retail, apparently before it hits the streets on the 6th of April (according to amazon).
Besides it being a great purchase, there isn't much to say about it. Formatted in widescreen, and looks gorgeous on the PS3 (which I assume does some up converting).
There isn't much detail on the DVDs themselves except for the 5th one, which is printed from edge to edge and looks alot more polished, like something you would find in a standalone retail box.
Anyway, even at retail price, this is a must buy. Amazon bringing it at below cost at release is a godsend for any anime fan, particularly those who were miffed that they never released a true box set.
You get to know these girls the same way you get to know your friends, by seeing them in everyday life, and meeting their siblings, parents and teachers. And most of all you get to know them by watching them doing goofy, silly, mundane, and sometimes touching things. You get to see the tender, vulnerable side of tough, level-headed Kagami when she gets a note from a boy. You learn how Miyuki got to be so smart, and what her greatest fear is. You discover that lazy, air-headed game player Konata can do some very practical things much better than the other girls, and that Tsukasa isn't quite as dumb as she seems. Like real life, the girls tease each other, sympathize with each other, and discuss boys and other things that girls only discuss among themselves.
In the process, you'll also pick up a fair amount of Japanese culture. You'll learn the term 'Christmas Cake' doesn't just apply to a dessert, the Japanese attitude toward anime and otaku, and, of course, the answer to sweet, innocent Yutaka's question: "What's yaoi?" (LOL!)
The series gets sentimental near the end, with an episode about how Konata's Mom and Dad met, and episodes about the older girls senior year.Read more ›
Lucky Star started on the topic of how to eat a pastry the right way. While I sat watching that I was officially a fan. This is such a great show. While some of the topics may not be towards everyone's liking, it is just a funny show. Each character is unique and funny in their own way and it just keeps the show interesting from beginning to end even though nothing really exciting happens! There are no crazy battles, no heavy emotional stories...none of that. All it is just teenagers being teenagers....with a little stereotypical anime thrown in. It is a great show and I would highly recommend if you are looking for something different in the anime world.
I would also recommend this set highly now that I also possess Blu-Ray release sold in Amazon.co.jp.
I would say that the quality of picture in this thin set is sufficiently good compared with the blu-ray set. The bonus is also plenty.
Nevertheless, I should also add that the anime Lucky Star is also legendary in its "media mix". If you are also interested in things like Cast Concert in Budokan, I really highly recommend you to consider an option of purchasing the blu-ray box mentioned above.
You may also purchase the concert dvd separately at
but the video quality is substantially lower than the bonus disk included in the blu-ray box.

Epsiodes are good. However, disc #1 is defective and is never played back... I'm disappointed at quality managemant of BANDAI.Published 10 months ago by Itsuki
In a word, wonderful. This is an anime for all Otaku-kind to enjoy. This slice of life anime is not for the anime novice, as most of the jokes are references to other series.Published 17 months ago by Charles Maddox Jr.
Its Lucky Star. Obviously worth 5 starts if you have even seen 1 episode of it. Price was a bit high but offset by the hilarity of the show.Published 18 months ago by brandon
