FWIW Lucky Star changed directors after episode 4 (there's debate as to whether that was caused by issues with the direction of the show itself or by the first director's conduct in relations with other people involved with the production), and while it never really becomes "a show with a plot", the pacing and the timing of jokes improve somewhat afterwards. But yeah, the show is kind of a hard sell nowadays. I first watched it in 2010, when it still sort of worked as a primer on otaku culture, but by now its function has shifted to being more of a time capsule of mid-2000's otaku culture. If a show like that were made nowadays there'd be a lot more references to gacha mobile games, isekai and light novels with ridiculously long titles, but also much fewer references to visual novels and dating sims.crush wrote:Also, i've watched the first five episodes of Lucky Star. It's not really interesting to me and i don't really like that overly cutesy childy voice acting, it's hard to understand and just seems annoying to me (i'd rather hear a "normal" voice), but i suppose most people don't mind it or else it wouldn't be used so often (almost every anime i've seen has had at least one character who speaks like that). I've been watching about two episodes of 四月は君の嘘 per one episode of Lucky Star in an attempt to get more bang out of my buck for the subs2srs decks (since it can be time consuming making them/formatting others' decks to work well with my setup) After Lucky Star (if i finish it) i may use Doraemon to fill this role, as i don't mind that show as much and the characters are easier to understand.
