Lucky Star Manga Volume 1: v. 1
About this deal
A thirteenth character CD, again sung by Kaoru Mizuhara as Misao Kusakabe, was released on March 26, 2008.
But as much as the art, dialog, and characters suck, there’s something more that bothers me the most about this manga, and the translation cannot excuse it – the portrayal of Konata’s ‘otaku’ humor. There are no shortage of reasons that this is a disappointment, some of which come from the Bandai release in particular, and others inherent in the manga that prove, in my opinion, the vast superiority of the anime. Meet Konata, an athletic and intelligent girl too dedicated to her favorite primetime animesto excel in anything but otaku culture; Miyuki, the cute, bespectacled livingexample of Moe with an encyclopedic knowledge of all subjects; Kagami, thebitter-sweet, tough but shy sister; Tsukasa, a kind but air-headed klutz. The humor of this segment takes on a decidedly darker, mean-spirited, more cynical and mature tone than the main show, disguised as an infomercial that skims over characters who appear in the anime, but mainly deals with the progressively abusive and violent work-relationship between Akira and Minoru.The four-panel comic strip manga version of Lucky Star started serialization in Kadokawa Shoten's magazine Comptiq's January 2004 issue sold on December 10, 2003. I’ve often posited that not understanding Japanese/Japanese culture is one of the biggest reasons that many people can’t enjoy Lucky Star, and outright reading a bad translation of it is not going to do you any good. The manga begins with the same infamous ‘choco coronet’ scene as the anime, only in the manga, it ends as soon as Miyuki tells Konata which end is the head. The proper way to eat pastries is only one of the many every day occurrences explored by the girls of Ms.
The Special First Edition version of the first DVD volume was released on June 22, 2007 and contained the first two episodes to the anime. In 2013, an organic chemistry book was published by Chukei Publishing titled Impressive Learning Chemistry (Organic Chemistry) With Lucky Star ( 『らき☆すた』と学ぶ 化学[有機編]が面白いほどわかる本), written by Takashi Matsubara and feature illustrations by Kagami Yoshimizu, with characters such as Konata, Tsukasa and other girls. Overall, I found the story funny, the art style was so refreshing and the stories were very easy to follow and the events happening were so normal yet interesting that is was very gripping and I personally wanted to just keep reading on to see what the next panel would be about. She is in a different class than Konata and Tsukasa, but she frequently comes to their class during lunchtime to eat with them.The three novels are written by Tōka Takei and feature illustrations by Lucky Star 's original author Kagami Yoshimizu.
