Indifferent star

I watched the second episode of Lucky Star. It was a little better than the first, but I’m still underwhelmed. I’ve never seen Seinfeld, so I don’t know how valid that comparison is, but it’s clearly inferior to Azumanga Daioh. AD gave us four memorable characters — Chiyo, Osaka, Sakaki and Yomi (six if you count Tomo and Yukari, but I’d like to forget them) — but Lucky Star features only one of any interest, Konata. One good character would be sufficient if the jokes were funny, and maybe they are, but for me they never rise above mildly amusing. Perhaps this is actually a brilliant show and I’m revealing one of my blind spots, but I probably won’t bother watching any more.

  1. I’ll watch the second one to be certain, but there’s a good chance I’m dropping this series too. It’s not a case of “too high of expectations,” either: I went into this with a deliberately neutral mindset, knowing what the hype machine can do to a person. It just isn’t my kind of funny. Others find it hilarious, and I say “bravo to you!”

  2. Sheesh, why does everybody always slam Yukari? She was my second favorite in Azumanga, trailing only Osaka.

    …walks away grumbling…
