Yo everyone
I downloaded all of Lucky Star yesterday I think, but i seem to remember my friend saying something about it takes the mick out of a lot of other animes.
I haven't seen too many animes myself.
So i was just wondering which are the main ones it uses so that i can watch them to understand the jokes.
Thanks
Terry

Let's see... well, it's primarily Haruhi and Full Metal Panic, but also a little Kanon. I also recall a Code Geass joke. There are probably more, but I either didn't catch them or don't remember. Haruhi and Full Metal Panic are the big ones though.

(also moving the thread to Gen. Anime for now)

In general, you just need to know otaku culture. For instance, if you don't know about idols, doujing, ero games, figures and such most of the joke will be lost on you.

As well as the other series mentioned, it makes a fairly large reference to Maria-sama ga Miteru.

Just think of it as Azumanga Daioh with otaku references all over the place and more prevalence of characters outside of the school. And Haruhi references also because of the voice actors/studio.

Must everything be compared to Azumanga? There are a zillion school life anime out there, and LS doesn't even cover the same sorts of topics, aside from the average school life stuff.

Okay then. From now on I will use only obscure comparisons to things only a couple people know to facilitate communication.

Iy should'nt be getting compared to anything. I'm saying it's not like AzuDai, so don't use the comparison, not neccessarily saying to comptare it to other things either.

I didn't like the first episode, but I enjoyed the last episode while I was watching it with a group of friends.
