Lucky Star 05: Depleted Uranium

May 8, 2007 at 9:55 pm (Anime)

Minus: Pretty much the same as everything already wrong with it. Comic timing possibly worse than before.
Plus: Animation seemed a little better. Also I laughed at Aya Hirano trying to sing poorly in the closing karaoke.
WTF: This episode seemed more random than the previous ones. Not in a funny way, like in a…balsamic vinegar?
Fansub: This time a.f.k. gets megapoints for use of “roflcopterskates”.

    As usual, a lot of jokes are kind of lost in translation… for example, the balsamic vinegar thing that keeps getting repeated because it’s a somewhat funny sounding onomotopeia in Japanese, whereas in English it’s just a random word. If you go back and listen to when it’s said rather than just reading the subs, you should be able to hear it.

    But yeah… Lucky Star is fairly niche even within Japanese culture, so most of the jokes just don’t translate well at all…

    I found the part where Konata sings while solo-hunting funny.

    I don’t know, it seems as if you liked the random Depleted Uranium comment. :P

    kinda, except I wasn’t sure if it was being random on purpose or if I was just missing something.
