Lucky Star is comedy series based on the original 4koma series by Kagami Yoshimizu. Following the high school adventures of four students through the pop culture world of Japan.

Lucky ☆ Star (らき☆すた, raki☆suta) deals with the lives of four young girls as they start their second year in high school and their unique and entertaining way of seeing aspects of life that, one way or another, are often overlooked in the real world, making the audience identify themselves at various points in the series.

The anime series is originally based on the 4koma (four paneled comic) series by the same name that was created by Kagami Yoshimizu.

Mainly a comedy series. The anime often breaks convention by being aware of the various other manga and anime series in Japan. It is very much a pop culture driven series that pokes fun of and parodies modern culture.

Much like with a similar series, Azumanga Daioh, there is no true consistent plot to the over all story.

A popular series that is frequently parodied in Lucky ☆ Star is another creation of Kyoto Animation. The mega hit The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. In one episode the voice actor for Haruhi Suzumiya, Aya Hirano, appears as herself performing in a concert of songs from the The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya anime.

Production & Directors

The anime series was produced by Kyoto Animation. Originally directed by Yutaka Yamamoto. He directed the first four episodes, but was replaced by Kyoto Animation. A statement was released that they did not believe his work had reached the proper standard. He was replaced for the remainder of the series by Yasuhiro Takemoto.
