2017 has been an eventful year for me in the world of anime. I don’t think I’m even scratching the surface with the shows I’ve listed here, compared to everything I’ve watched this year (even excluding the ones from 2017). But these are the ones that made the biggest impression on me.
Many years ago I had been exposed to this show. We’re talking pre-adolescence here. I had seen the opening theme play on my friend’s TV and I’m still unsure how I felt back then. I didn’t know what to make of it at the time.
This challenge is getting harder. Picking a favourite character doesn’t get easier when you split my options by two. Though it does allow me the opportunity to list more, it’s not much easier narrowing down my choices, since there’s so many characters I love or think are interesting, but just don’t occur to me when prompted. If I spent more time thinking about them, I’m sure some could wind up becoming a favourite of mine, but given the time constraint I’m placing on myself to write these I don’t have that luxury at the moment.
I’ll be interpreting this one as favourite comic relief character in anime, even though that may not be why I personally like them myself. The character being comic relief may be part of what I find interesting and entertaining about them, but there has to be more to it than just that for me to consider them among my favourites. Maybe they make me chuckle here and there, but most importantly these characters brighten my day in some way.
Here we are. Favourite slice of life anime. Not much confusion or difficulty deciding here. However, I can’t bring myself to only mention one so… This should be fun. Though as much as I’d love to talk about these shows on-end, I feel it necessary to keep things brief here should I wish to revisit them and write about them in the future (excuses excuses).
As observed by Kagami, Konata’s intellect and passion truly shine here in this episode when she is in her own environment of expertise; in this case the Comiket convention. Even for a regular attendee, Konata’s level of preparation for this massive event is extremely impressive.
Now I’ve become increasingly familiar with anime references, whether it be through personal experience having seen the show, or via screen-caps, memes and word of mouth. Lucky Star is a show that is jam-packed full of references, and in the case of sharing staff members who worked on Haruhi, can be very, very meta about it.
