Cheer dance revolution! :3
Looks like Konata is weak to Kagamin’s tsundere charms as Kagami is weak to Konata’s theory of friendship. :3
Which is why fansubs are essential. :3
So fitting that Kagami-sama wanted to be Prime Minister when she was in primary school. :3
Witch Hat Konata! So cunning that she got the class to do a Fortune Telling Mansion so that she could cosplay as the Divine Nagato. :3
Strawberry Panic’s Carmen, anyone? :3
The cheerleading dance was sooo addictive. It’s glued to the screen on replay like Hare Hare Yukai and God Knows all over again. :3
Best of friends. Would have been nice if there was just that little bit more too. :3
Thanks, girls, it’s been fun!
I recall a lot of naysaying and bashing of this series at the start – ironically because, for some, the OP gave the impression that there would ‘more stuff happening’ rather than just lots of talk. There were also a view that compared L*S unfavourably to Azumanga (which I enjoyed very much too); I’d argue that the two are only similar in terms of form (4koma origin, high school girls) but that the humour had a rather different dynamic with L*S relying more heavily on the individual characters’ quirks bouncing off each other, thus the need for buildup and getting the feel of each character before moving up from unit-level to system-level. For me, the first few episodes are even more enjoyable now that I know more about the characters and I’m gratified by how the dynamics were all laid out right from the start already; this makes for high rewatching enjoyment in my book.
Like PPD! (or even Azumanga where some are put off by the untranslateable puns), this series isn’t for everyone – particularly those who want linear narratives and stuff blowing up – but it worked out for me and I enjoyed it.
Oh btw, could have had MOAR yuri. :3
