Taking a step out of my comfort zone to watch an anime that's has no mecha, conspiracies or fight scenes. Wait a minute! There were some parodies on Lucky Star that spoofs @ Gundam, Full Metal Panic, Initial D and some other animus that amused me. Might seems like just an original light-hearted anime on a few Japanese girls going through High-school life but the unoriginal is the injection of true humor through their conversation, speaking from different perspectives on anime, Otaku & human behavior. Sometimes, I just feel that that the girls are mocking at geeks like you & I but can't help laughing over it. Watching 'Lucky Star' also gives me a better understanding of Japan culture as a whole.
