Lucky Star garnered itself quite a lot of attention during its original broadcast run and after the release of the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya by Bandai Entertainment as the next likely candidate for them to release with Kadokawa Pictures USA. Not unlike Suzumiya, comedies can be a hard sell and Lucky Star is certainly very targeted with what it’s going after. Given the same kind of love and attention as Suzumiya, Lucky Star really has all the bells and whistles of a top tier release that will make it noteworthy just from that alone. These first four episodes are certainly curious ones as we get to the first layer of who these characters are, but it hasn’t been a knockout show that has drawn us in entirely. There is a lot to like here, but it’s got a lot to go and it’ll be interesting to see if it can maintain what it’s done or improve on it. The core cast of characters are a lot of fun to watch and their social interactions are quite amusing. Right now, Lucky Star is just good simple mostly clean fun.
