Lucky Star OVA - Subbed!


Hurrah! The Lucky Star OVA DVD was released last week and I've been very patiently waiting for it to be subbed. Today was the day! For those of you who are just getting this as news, head on over to Mininova and get the torrent. The only downside is the live action segment in the credits isn't subbed (and the audio was off-synch too when I watched it). There are certainly some scenes and references in this OVA that do the series justice:

- We get a "Wa-wa-wasuremono" from Minoru this round!
- The girls visit Minami's residence and the plot revolves around the dog. Patricia the otaku squeezes the pink flesh of the paw and comments on how it is hard and rough instead of soft like in the manga. She then proceeds to quote: "Zetsubou-shita!" (I'm in despair!) from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
- I very much enjoyed the volleyball scene. It revolved around the Hiragi sisters on opposite teams. It was quite touching the way Tsukasa looks up to her sister.
- The MMO scene where Kagamin finally gives in and joins Konata and Sensei's "world" was very creative. The dialogue was all typed but the characters appeared in boxes to show expressively what was being portrayed. I love how they poke at all the quirks that are common with MMOs (such as when you leave for a week you come back and your party members are ridiculously higher in level than you). Tsukasa the noob not spending her talent points was very typical as well. In the end we see Gamer's store clerk approach Konata with goods only to find out...that she is AFK!
- Finally, the weirdest (well the SGT Frog one might be the weirdest), well, the one I thought to be the weirdest: Kagami as Hatsune Miku! I'll elaborate:


Kagami is set to guard the fort while her parents and sisters go to a dance. She's watching TV when suddenly Konata slips in dressed as witch Nagato from Haruhi Suzumiya. Her wand creates a magical carriage out of a shrine and some car seats which she tries to use to get Kagami to go to do the dance. When Kagami refuses Konata moves the whole house down the street. Kagami needs a costume so Haruhi changes her with her wand. First it's a maid, then a shrine Maiden, then Tohsaka Rin from Fate/Stay Night, and finally...Hatsune Miku! Kagamiku was adorable and I wish she did more. She just angrily grasps the leek then stands/sits around complaining the whole time. Kagami has to get home by midnight and when they fail to arrive on time they find her house is still stranded in the street. To reset everything Konata whispers the magic words into Kagami's ear; Kagami then wakes up (yes of course it was a dream!) and shouts: "I want us to join our bodies~!" right in Tsukasa's face. It was a very awkward/hilarious moment. I've never laughed so hard at Lucky Star.

Man, I really hope they make more.
