Name: Lucky Star

Genre: Comedy, Slice-of-Life, School Life, 4-koma

Plot: Lucky Star centers around the high-school lives of Konata, Kagami, Kagami's twin sister Tsukasa, and the girls' friends and supporting cast of high school classmates. It is a comedy 4-koma with some slice-of-life mixed in. There is no larger plot or goal.

Rating: 8.5/10 or 4 stars of 5.

Why: I found Lucky Star to be very enjoyable to read. I enjoyed being able to pick it up, read a couple strips on the go and then set it down. Most of the jokes are not laugh-out-loud; its brand of comedy seems to be more of the type to bring a smile to your face or at best make you chuckle a little at the characters' silliness. The art is cute, but due to the style there are very few detailed drawings; most of the time it is drawn in chibi or semi-chibi form.

Pros:

~Reasonably funny.

~Cute, if not extremely detailed, art.

~Great for reading on the go.

Cons:

~No huge laugh out loud moments.

~Plotline and style may not be everyone's cup of tea.

Recommended: Yes.
