Lucky Star: Hit or Miss...

Recognize this scene?

Hit or miss, that's how I feel while watching Lucky Star. I think it's largely due to the wide range of animes/mangas/games/novels it references to. The range is so wide I can pick out probably less than half of them. When I understood what they're referencing to, it was funny as hell. But when I don't get what they're referencing, the whole episode just flew by like running water. But that's not the anime's fault.

Also, Lucky Star seems to have taken the entire voice acting crew of Melancholy of Haruhi as either main character or guest characters.

Anyway, here is the score card for Lucky Star:

(Full score is 5)

Drama: N/A
Comedy: 4.5 (The ones I understood, they're great; the ones I didn't, well...I assume someone did)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 4.5 (It kept its original 4-panel comic style art, quite refreshing)
Sound/Music: 4.5 (Music from lots of animes, and some original as well)
Character: 5 (It's one of the reason this anime is so funny)
Plot: N/A

Re-watch value: 3.5 (Maybe re-watch some of the really funny scenes, but can't image to re-watch the entire series)

Overall (not average): 4.5

Recommendation: If you haven't seen lots of animes or you're not familiar with Japanese culture, this is definitely not for you. Otherwise, you'll find it very amusing.
