Jump to: navigation, search

This is an episode listing for the anime adaptation of Lucky Star. The anime, containing twenty-four episodes, aired between April 8, 2007 and September 16, 2007 on Chiba TV and is produced by the animation company Kyoto Animation. The series was directed by Japanese animation director Yutaka Yamamoto for the first four episodes, but was replaced by Yasuhiro Takemoto from episode five on. An original video animation episode was produced following the series and was released on September 26, 2008. An anime adaptation of Miyakawa-ke no Kūfuku, produced by Ordet and Encourage Films, began streaming on Ustream on April 29, 2013.

The opening theme is "Take It! Sailor Uniform" (もってけ!セーラーふく Motteke! Sērāfuku?) by Aya Hirano, Emiri Katō, Kaori Fukuhara, and Aya Endo. Lucky Star does not have one consistent ending theme, a new theme is used in each episode; most of them are of theme songs from other anime and from tokusatsu television shows. Each ending theme in episodes one through twelve is performed as a karaoke by one of the principal characters. From episode thirteen onwards, each ending theme is performed by Minoru Shiraishi, singing and acting in live action (the exception to this being episode sixteen, which shows a music video excerpt of "Misoji Misaki" by Hiromi Konno).

Konata refers to Minoru as "Sebastion" because he was acting like a butler by collecting homework for Ms. Kuroi. Konata also finds out from Tsukasa that Kagami takes liberal arts just to be in the same class with everyone else and Konata makes fun of her for it. Yui comes to visit and Konata needs help with her summer homework but she would probably have to redo it over again if she gets help from Yui. Miyuki attends school for a day without her glasses and Tsukasa gets a new cell phone, but its life is tragically cut short after a trip in the washing machine. Konata's dad is also trying to call her, but she has left her phone in her room. They get on the topic of what side the head would be on a cornet again and how Kagami was not pleased with the results of the diet she went on to make up for the weight she gained in the summer. Konata and the Hiiragi twins are on a bus and Kagami talks about how there has been frequent junk mail lately and Konata explains that she uses an address that is hard to guess. She uses an address called "iluvgirlswithglasses" and this creates an awkward moment for everyone on the bus.

In Lucky Channel, Minoru follows up on a fan's request for a certain hairstyle involving sunflowers. Akira is sulky right from the start and continues in her bad mood, until near the end of the section.

Kagami is in an eating contest, Konata is in the one-hundred meter dash, Tsukasa has to jump over hurdles, and Miyuki is in a relay race, where she brings the team from third to win the race by using her physical assets. Later, Tsukasa is trying to learn a song on the recorder, and doing horribly, until Kagami teaches her not to blow so hard into it. Later, the girls line up for lunch in the school cafeteria, having various conversations. Afterwards, Konata is at a bookstore and trying to decide which manga to buy. She ultimately selects volume five of Shuffle! only to realize that she already owns a copy of that manga to begin with.

In Lucky Channel, Akira jeers at Minoru for being just an assistant, thus unable to gather as many fans as her; she is rudely awakened when she realizes that this time around, he was the only one of the two who has fan mail. Akira represents the team in inviting viewers to vote for the character they want to be made into a live figure. 
09 "That Feeling"
"Sonna Kankaku" (そんな感覚) 
"Kogarashi ni Dakarete" (木枯らしに抱かれて Embraced by the Wintry Wind?) by Konata (Aya Hirano) June 3, 2007
Mid-term exams are arriving, though Konata cannot seem to get into the practice of studying, and instead, reverts to slacking off, while having fun playing games. Konata tries to ask her friends about good study habits, but in the end, she does bad on her tests. When the girls get to school, they talk about what blood type they have and what type of games they play. Tsukasa got help from her sister and this time got better scores, but Kagami's scores were still higher, despite her own scores going down somewhat. Later, Konata and the Hiiragi twins go see a movie and they also go to a cake café, but end up taking too much and must finish it all or pay extra. Miyuki needs to put in her eye drops, but she flinches too much and gets Konata to "help" her.

In Lucky Channel, Minoru re-introduces Tsukasa Hiiragi, whom Akira compared to Kamigishi Akari. When Minoru admits that Tsukasa has some idol qualities, Akira hits him in the head with an ashtray. She then goes on to teach Minoru how to have his pictures taken like a true idol. 
10 "Desires"

"I'm Proud" (アイム・プラウド Aimu Puraudo?) by Kagami (Emiri Katō) June 10, 2007
Tsukasa gets a new cell phone and learns how to text message from her sister. Tsukasa loves to text message so much that she spams Kagami's cell phone with an excessive amount of messages to the point of annoyance. Yui comes to visit Konata but doesn't realize that Konata is playing an age restricted game. Konata and Kagami both go to an anime shop where four stereotypical anime characters are introduced who name Konata "Legendary Girl A", thus, being the first appearance of Meito Anizawa. Later, the Hiiragi twins spend the night at Konata's house and finally get a chance to meet her father. They also discover how much Konata resembles her late mother, Kanata Izumi, while perusing a photo album. At school, Konata tries to come up with some new nicknames and after a suggestion from Kagami, starts calling her Kagami-sama, which greatly embarrasses Kagami.

In Lucky Channel, Akira re-introduces Kagami Hiiragi and thinks of her as a tsundere. Minoru strongly disagrees and explains the original definition of tsundere. Akira asks Minoru for a better term to describe Kagami. Unable to come up with one, Minoru wants the home viewers to do that instead, leading him into a long and enthusiastic speech that, at the end of the shoot, he is very proud of.

The end of the year is drawing close, and that means Christmas is right around the corner. They get on the topic of how sometimes when they get sleepy on a bus, they sometimes tend to lean on the person next to them. Whenever Konata gets on her bus, she gets sleepy and falls asleep a few times on the shoulder of the person next to her. She realizes that she got off the stop before, but whenever she tries to go back to her seat, someone took it and Konata is forced to stand up. At school, Kagami is annoyed that she didn't get much studying done, but Konata is proud about how many hours she studied. Whenever Miyuki asks how many hours they studied, it turns out that both studied for four hours. Tsukasa talks with Konata and Miyuki on when they stopped believing in Santa Claus, and gets vastly different responses. Kagami notices that she goes to Tsukasa's class a little too much and Miyuki and Tsukasa talk about dentist and cavities again. Yui visits Konata and they discuss about a detective show. The girls also talk about how a Christmas cake can seem like a regular cake after the age of twenty-five. Before the winter break from school begins, Konata and her friends must go through a round of final exams, though Konata does not fare as well as she would have liked. She takes a look at Miyuki's grades and is jealous of losing, not of her grades, but her bust size. Nanako purchases a Christmas cake and Konata and Kagami visit the anime shop again. On Christmas Eve, Konata's dad is upset whenever Konata is late to coming home, but is suddenly overcome by joy whenever she brings him a present. Yui comes to visit them drunk but is excited that her husband was waiting for her at her house. Konata logs onto her online game to find her teacher already on. The next morning, the girls discuss about static electricity by touching the door handles and Konata's dad is having fun shocking himself at home.

June 24, 2007
Konata, Kagami, and Tsukasa go to Comiket 71, at the end of 2006. While Kagami can bear the massive event, Tsukasa can't take too much, being a first-timer, and is eventually unable to get what Konata asked her to pick up. Meanwhile, it appears that Akira Kogami makes an appearance, as declared in the previous episode's Lucky Channel. However, it turns out to be just a cardboard cut-out of her with a message stating that Akira cannot attend because of sudden illness. After the morning trip around Comiket, Konata meets Tsukasa and Kagami at a New Year festival and receives very bad luck in a lottery drawing. At home, Konata goes out of her way to be nice to her dad in order to receive her otoshidama. She logs into her game to wish others a happy new year only to once again encounter her teacher online.

In Lucky Channel, Minoru is the one doing the intro. Akira is still present, but she is wearing a mask over her mouth. Minoru explains that Akira suddenly fell ill and therefore could not appear in episode twelve of Lucky Star

"Ore no Wasuremono" (俺の忘れ物 My Forgotten Thing?) by Minoru Shiraishi[1] July 1, 2007
The Japanese New Year is coming up and everyone is excited. Kagami, however, is once again worrying about her weight having increased again. She spills the fact that she likes eating mochi and Konata jokes that gorging on it has caused Kagami's weight gain. Miyuki explains that eating a rice cake that is as big as a matchbox is the same as eating a whole bowl of rice. The girls discuss various traditions, foods, and myths about New Year's, and which ones they actually practice. Valentine's Day also approaches, and the girls find themselves only sharing chocolates between themselves, as they don't have any boys to give them to. The girls also talk at length about kotatsu. Later, at a cafe, Konata announces that her younger cousin, Yutaka Kobayakawa, will be coming to live with her. Konata goes to the anime shop again where the dynamic comic book characters (led by returning character Meito Anizawa) yet again try and make a sale from her but fail, ultimately because she was 3 yen short of the price of the DVD they were about to sell her.

In Lucky Channel, Akira appears with the twin drills she had mentioned in episode seven. Also, Minoru has the voting results for the figurine project mentioned in episode 8, and he wants Akira to announce them.

They meet again at the school and find they were both accepted. Kagami complains about how annoying cram school calls can be and Miyuki explains that you can use caller ID to spot the calls. Kagami goes home and realizes that she does not have caller ID. When and Miyuki comes home, she finds her mom having a lively conversation with someone on the phone, only to find out it was a telemarketer. Konata and the Hiiragi twins are back at the anime shop and Konata is upset because there is a new item available, but she does not have enough points to get it because she bought something else the other day. Konata and the twins also go to a restaurant and discuss why restrooms are usually located near the smoking section. Konata, her dad, and Yutaka watch the news about elementary children being targeted. The Hiiragi twins come over and discuss uniforms and traditions—such as the practice of getting something from the person you like—at their old schools with Konata and Yutaka. Yui comes over and wants to party, but the girls are under age for the things she wanted to do. Later, Konata calls Kagami to sympathize with her about the pressures of being a big sister, and notes that her cousin, Yui, doesn't set a good example for her at all.

In Lucky Channel, Akira complains about recording only one line for the show, and she was not even shown. She tries to get the audience to help her get a bigger part. Minoru is told by the producer to stop Akira because time is almost up, but Akira ends up yelling at Minoru.

When April Fool's Day comes around, Konata calls Kagami and tells her that she is done with her homework, and Kagami falls for it. Nanako later calls her and tells Konata she accidentally wrote over one of Konata's save files in one of her games, which makes Konata lie to Nanako about Miyuki, after falling for the April Fool's joke. When the new school year begins, Konata, Tsukasa, and Miyuki are put into the same class again, while Kagami is put into a separate class. Yutaka is in the same class as Minami, and is starting to become good friends with her.

In Lucky Channel, Akira manages to scare Minoru by telling him that this was his final appearance before revealing that it was nothing more than an April Fool's joke. Akira then begins complaining as to how Minoru appeared as the MC at Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekisō in the actual episode, and how she has not had a concert of her own for a while, before discovering through Minoru that the producer has actually booked a concert for her next week. Akira is ecstatic at this news.

Kagami, Tsukasa, and Miyuki are invited to the cosplay café Konata works at, but on the way they were asked to buy a comic magazine and a new Code Geass dōjinshi. Men outside of the comic store start to take pictures of Tsukasa because she looks like Akari Kamigishi from ToHeart, but Kagami intervenes and pulls Tsukasa into the store. When they arrive at the café, Konata is cosplaying as Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and there are two other employees dressed as Mikuru Asahina (Patricia Martin) and Yuki Nagato, along with a customer resembling Kyon. Konata and the two dressed as Yuki and Mikuru do the dance sequence to the song "Hare Hare Yukai", Tsukasa and Miyuki were impressed, Kagami was not for the most part, but smiled a bit after it was over. The employees speak like the characters they are cosplaying when they serve; Konata speaks like Haruhi and imitates her exact voice (being that the voice actresses of Haruhi and Konata in both the English and Japanese versions of the series are the same).

In Lucky Channel, it turns out that the concert talked about in the previous episode turns out be nothing more than a karaoke performance. Akira is quite angered at this, but still sings regardless. The show ends before Akira can finish her song, but the song continues into the credits.

Miyuki reveals a myriad of things that can improve eyesight, but she has never tried any of them. Kagami continues to try and make Konata read light novels, which greatly annoys her. Later, Kagami gets on Konata's case about how she never uses her cell phone, and is only wasting money on the money access fee. Hiyori invites Yutaka, Minami, and Patricia to her house, and while Hiyori goes to get drinks, Patricia finds Hiyori's sketchbook, greatly embarrassing her, especially when she gets to the recent sketches of Minami and Yutaka together in a yuri pairing.

While Yutaka, Minami, and Hiyori are out together, Hiyori spots two people cosplaying as Roy Mustang and Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, though only Hiyori notices this as she spans photos on her cell phone.

At the end of the day, Konata, Tsukasa, Kagami, Miyuki, Ayano, and Misao reflect on their last cultural festival. The next day, at the opening of the festival, the girls get ready emotionally for the dance, and as the curtain rises, the screen fades to white. 
OVA "Original Visual Animation"
"Orijinaru na Bijuaru to Animēshon" (オリジナルなビジュアルとアニメーション) 
"Ai o Torimodose!!" (愛をとりもどせ!!?) by Uchōten (Akira Kogami (Hiromi Konno) and Minoru Shiraishi) September 26, 2008

The story is split up into several chapters.

  • The Beginning and End of Cherry's Day (チェリーちゃんの一日のはじまりとおわり Cherī-chan no Ichihibi no Hajimari to Owari?)- Minami's pet dog, Cherry, is paid a visit by the other characters. While Minami tells her to behave, Cherry shows reluctance to participate. At the end of the day, Minami is concerned that she's not eating any food.
  • Online Gaming with Friends (ネットゲーにはまる人たち Nettogē ni Hamaru Hitotachi?)- Kagami and Tsukasa join Konata and Nanako in the MMORPG that she often plays in the series. Kagami is confused by all the leetspeak and Tsukasa has trouble figuring out the game mechanics.
  • Kagami Reluctantly goes to the Ball (ぶとうかいに渋々出かけていくかがみ Butōkai ni Shibu deka Keteiku Kagami?)- Kagami has a Cinderella-esque dream where Konata (dressed in the witch outfit Yuki Nagato sometimes wears) uses magic to take her to the ball dressed as Hatsune Miku. The ball turns out to be a mixed martial arts tournament held by Misao where the winner will become her bride. She is excited to see Kagami and offers to help her through the contest, which Kagami flatly declines, insisting that she be sent home. Konata's magic runs out before Kagami's house can be returned, so Konata makes Kagami say something embarrassing which Tsukasa hears when Kagami wakes up.
  • The Volleyball Battle against Big Sis! (バレーボールでお姉ちゃんと対決! Barēbōrū de Onee-chan to Taiketsu!?)- A volleyball game ensues in the high school gym in which Misao encourages Tsukasa to defeat her sister and rise out of the ranks of 'side character'.
  • Four People on the Perplexing Road (道に迷った4人 Michi ni Mayotta Yonnin?)- Konata, Kagami, Tsukasa and Miyuki get lost in the woods whilst on a nature hike, trying to figure out where to go and how to survive. Konata provides little to no help towards the situation.
  • The Mysterious Occurrence at the Pet Shop (ペットショップでの不可思議な出来事 Pettoshoppu deno Fukashigi na Dekigoto?)- The girls go to an odd pet shop where they find a rabid Sgt. Frog and Private Tamama and somehow wake up as various frogs.

The seventh segment, also the shortest segment of the OVA, shows the manga shop owner Meito Anizawa in the same MMORPG that the Lucky Star girls were playing, again resulting in his failed attempt to sell Konata in-game items after waiting for her for a long time while she was away from her keyboard.

It ends with a live action Lucky Channel segment featuring the two voice actors for Akira Kogami and Minoru Shiraishi.
