What’s the best way to eat dessert? Do twins really have a psychic connection? What kind of guys are into moe girls? These are the kinds of questions that float through the inquisitive mind of anime super-fan Konata Izumi. When she’s not lost in her favorite manga or logging hours in one of her online games, she’s debating the mysteries of the universe with the best friends a girl could ask for. And while they might not share Konata’s refined eye for anime tropes and trivia, she doesn’t hold it against them. After all, Miyuki Takara is a precious moe dream girl, and twin sisters Tsukasa and Kagami are always there when she needs a helping hand or a notebook to copy homework from (even if Kagami insists on being totally tsundere about it). At the end of the day, Konata could look far and wide, but she’d never find a better group of girls to get her through the horrors of high school! Lucky Star contains episodes 1-24 plus the OVA. Special Features: On Screen Text Reference Guide, Key Scenes Gallery, Promo Clips, The Adventures of Minour, Shiraishi, Cast Interviews, Textless Opening, Textless Closing, US Trailer, Trailers. Spoken Languages: English, Japanese with English subtitles.

The show revolves around these 4 girls, one which is an otaku, one is a brainiac, one is a klutz, and one with a strong personality. The Otaku girl is always making comments that revolve around her interests ( which she plays adult games, so you can imagine where that goes). She has a father that is a bit of a pervert, but is still fun to watch. and the strong girl is always going back and forth with the otaku girl, which leaves some interesting situations, and comments.
I really do not want to give too much away, but, overall, the show was very good. I had no problem watching it straight though (yes, I have had some that after a few episodes, or a disk, I needed to take a brake from it).. This one kept me entertained where I did not need to take breaks in the middle, and put something else in for a while. It is basically a high school comedy. It is well worth the money.
That's not to say there are not amusing scenes if you do not fall into the above group though. The show is pretty slim, not much plot to be had, but the characters are memorable and fun for the most part. Even though the plot doesn't really go anywhere, it has a similar feel to it that Azumanga Daioh or Nichijou have in the sense that it takes a look at some mundane everyday things in ways that make them amusing and entertaining.
Personally I still think Azumanga Daioh is the better comedy series overall and for the average viewer, but if you're even just a bit nerdy, or you can appreciate that kind of humor, you'll want to give Lucky Star a try.
The only minor gripes I had were the dvd packaging, which is a commonplace for these types of purchases. The dvd roms seem to be so securely placed in the package, I was afraid of damaging them upon removal but its not a big issue. Another issue would be the subtitles, large green and obtrusive as they are. I got used to it a couple episodes in, but I have to say that they could have been better produced. The translations were okay, a few times I could point out instances where a better translation could be used.
But in all, I believe this was a 5 star purchase, and I would recommend this to anyone else who takes interest in watching this gem of a show. Thanks!

Minor issue on one disc where the subtitles don't cycle for a minute or two, but that's not too bad.
