Detailing the plot for this series is a little difficult, as there's really no huge story to unwind or events to expect. The series follows a group of high school girls, all of whom have wonderfully distinct personalities. The most notable of the group is Konata, one of the main characters of the series. She's 100% otaku through & through, having been raised from an early age in an otaku-rich environment.
I'd heard so much hype from various fans of the series that I figured that it was time to pick up the series to check it out. I loved the 4 panel format of the series. If you are going to make a gag series, it is better to use a brief format in order to keep from overwhelming the audience. I also loved the artwork- it's incredibly cute & makes many of the actions of the group pretty endearing.
The only negative thing I will really say about the series is that I wasn't able to finish the volume in one sitting. While I enjoyed & appreciated the humor in the series, after a while the slapstick & humor sort of grated on me. This is something I'd recommend to people, but it isn't something that I recommend downing in one gulp. The series was initially intended to be read as a weekly strip, so stretching the book out over a few days is recommended. (Then you can go back & read it all in one gulp!)
I'm going to be collecting the rest of the series, but I recommend that if you aren't familiar with the series then you should probably read it in the store before making a final decision.
It took about a week to get the manga, and it was worth every penny! ^_^
The very first page starts with Konata showing off her amazing sports abilities, then insisting she can't join a sports team because she'll miss her anime shows. She's very matter-of-fact in this. It moves on to a semiheated discussion on how it's best to eat a choco-cornet. Which side is the starting side? Lucky Star revels in pointlessness and making humor out of pointlessness. The back of the first volume describes it as a "leisure" read, and that's a good way of putting it. It's an unworried, carefree, and relaxed series.
Someone wanting a plot probably won't find much use in this series. However, its success, and the success of the anime version, shows that many people find it charming. This seems to be especially true with people who consider themselves otaku. While otakudom is poked fun at, it's also shown as an important way of life. More than once, Konata's friends remark to her that if she put her concentration into studying instead of anime, manga, and video games, she'd really shine in school. That doesn't mean she listens, and even if her study habits aren't recommendable, they're relatable to many people.
Each page consists of eight panels neatly lined up.Read more ›

Lots of enjoyable wackiness in the Azumanga style, though not quite on that level. Still worth reading and enjoying.Published 12 months ago by Douglas A. Sommer
