Movie a Day: Animay: Lucky Star as a whole
i did it i finished lucky star (why) because i really enjoy this “slice-of-life” thing for the same reason i spent so much time watching kids movies: they have a simple and positive feeling that really does not come across too much in Grown-Up media.
how any pathetic freak can sexualize these characters is beyond me: they are animated to look like parodies of a charactiure of anime itself, let alone being close to looking human in any sense whatsoever. but then again nerds managed to fetishize cartoon ponies so i really should give up on wishing people didnt jerk off to things they shouldnt be jerking off to. the show didnt boobs-bounce-around either (haruhi) and fanservice seemed minimal to non-appearing. good fucking riddance
oh and this show might as well be less of its own universe so much as An Extended Haruhi Reference
defined lines and soft rounded designs on everything except hair. it looks crisp and flows well and you really dont see many Meguca Meduka awful-looking things going on in the background. its bright and colorful, kind of like visual candy.
the appeal of the konata character to huge giant nerds is intentional and totally well-executed: her traits are specifically designed to be a pretty ultimate otaku waifu, and if u notice none of the characters ever enter a relationship so nerdshits can imagine themselves being in relationships with them.
my favorite character was kagami because im a sucker for the straight man anyways. i just went to the lucky star wikia because i hate myself and look at how needlessly detailed the character information is like do we really need to know blood type and “Status: Alive” as if people end up dead or even feeling bad in any way whatsoever in fucking Lucky Star??? what the fucking shit
the best gags in the series were the recurring ones. obviously the Overreacting Anime Vendor Guy was hilarious to watch, but my favorite segments of the show were always the Lucky Channel segments. the tone of these were just so completely different and like DARK-HUMORED compared to the rest of the show. not only did these parts have the funniest faces but also the best lines.
cant really view this thru a critical lens bc i turned my brain off as i watched them. whatever heres the meaning: nerds are fucking awful, fuck u
recommendation: i liked it but god help you if youre a weeb who lacks self awareness
I NEED STRUCTURE IN MY LIFE I CANT KEEP DOING THIS EMPTY DAY AFTER EMPTY DAY I NEED SOMETHING TO DOOOOOOOOOO
working retail is probably gonna be awful (never as bad as working at fuckawful mcdondles but still) but at least ill finally have something to do
lol white boy “problems”
