Editorial Reviews

When you think back to your high school days, can you really sum up those days in one concise paragraph? Memories of those times were probably made up of a series of hilarious scenes with your closest classmates. That is exactly what Lucky Star is all about. Meet Konata, a girl who is too obsessed with anime and video games for her own good; Miyuki, the cute, bespectacled living example of moé with an encyclopedic knowledge of all subjects; Kagami, the always serious but shy straight-man to Konata s constant teasing and pranks; and her younger fraternal twin sister, Tsukasa, sweet and kind airhead. Follow their not so ordinary high school days as they try to answer every day questions like how to eat a chocolate cornet. The set contains all 24 episodes. From the same studio that brought you The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Kyoto Animation.

Like many I enjoyed the series through Youtube or...alternative means. My anime tastes aren't very complex. I typically only watch comedies, and for me to actively seek a dvd/boxset purchase is a compliment in and of itself. To date the only other box set i've purchased is Azumanga Daioh and a few of the Miyazaki films (including Ponyo).

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.

No thanks.

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.

Lucky Star has become something of an anime classic. It's slice of life style is similar to Azumanga Daioh, but without the wacky fantasy sequences. The series is more or less a collection of skits that could be viewed at random, but I'd recommend watching them in order the first time through. While there isn't a strong on-going plot, the main characters' personalities are developed as the series progresses, revealing each one's quirks, strengths, and weaknesses, with additional characters introduced as time goes on.

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.

Seinfeld was one of the greatest shows because it was a show about nothing. Now, take those 4 characters and turn them into 4 teenaged anime girls. Give them a few teenager oriented topics and school and you get the hysterical show 'Lucky Star'.

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.

Ok so let me start out with saying this anime is really funny. I was excited when it came in the mail but I didn't have time to watch it yet... Now I'm on disc 2 and I'm already having problems. The picture it shows is a little bit on the blurry side, and when I want to see the trailers, it just goes all weird and doesn't let me watch them. I only gave this 3 stars because I haven't actually had any problems with the lucky star episodes playing, but I'm still pretty ticked off at the quality and the inability to watch the trailers.

The anime series is undoubtedly a very best of animes, if your taste fits to the direction of what other reviewers have already elaborated. I am a Japanese and I am really fascinated to find that great many Americans can also enjoy this maniac locally Japanese sort of fun -- things like Akihabara culture and Japan's high school scenes.

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.
