"Lucky Star" is one of the best anime shows of all time. It is by far the funniest comedy anime ever created, far surpassing breakthrough shows like "Pani Poni Dash!" and "Cromartie High School". The 2002 anime "Azumanga Daioh" is the only other show that comes close. When you watch a comedy show, it is common to smile, chuckle or laugh - but when you watch "Lucky Star", particularly the first two to three episodes, you find yourself laughing so hard it hurts. This is a laugh out loud and stomp your feet show thanks to a brilliant comic talent - KyoAni. Many people who I have talked to about this show have said they "don't get it" and that the rapid fire otaku cultural references fly over their heads. I say, exactly. This show is clever and sharp and if you actually laugh at crap like "Ouran High School Host Club", you won't "get" this show either. Unlike every other pale, bland humored show out there, "Lucky Star" is full flavored, knock you on your ass funny. Do not miss the chance to see it every time its released, you'll be witnessing anime history.
