->'''[[OtakuSurrogate Konata]]''': Okay, let's do this!\\

Imagine ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', on [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs even more sedatives]] with a fair helping of [[OtakuSurrogate Otaku Bait]].

''Lucky Star'' is a SliceOfLife manga by Kagami Yoshimizu, featuring four high school girls. The main focus are on four characters: Konata Izumi, an OtakuSurrogate whose Japanese pop culture knowledge is truly staggering; her best friend Kagami Hiiragi; Kagami's twin Tsukasa Hiiragi; and the wealthy and intelligent Miyuki Takara. Drawing on a huge number of {{Otaku}} references, ''Lucky Star'' is more or less a show about [[SeinfeldianConversation nothing in particular]]. Notable for being the largest example of the PuniPlush style and its rather [[{{Otaku}} eccentric]] fanbase.

KyotoAnimation used the manga as the basis for a highly successful {{anime}} series, which got acquired for American distribution by Creator/BandaiEntertainment, and dubbed with around the same casting as ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]]''... or some of the in-jokes would not be translatable at all. It should be noted that most of the references were KyoAni's own additions, in order to cash in on the merchandising of anime in general, mainly from ''Haruhi''. It worked; ''Lucky Star'' is currently the studio's most marketable show, with many [=CDs=] and video games being made even 3 years after the anime ended. A stage musical adaptation has been green-lit in 2011.

This series also has a [[Characters/LuckyStar character sheet]], [[Memes/LuckyStar Memetic Mutations]], [[WMG/LuckyStar WMG]], [[Headscratchers/LuckyStar Headscratchers]], and [[FanficRecs/LuckyStar fanfic recommendation]]. A [[ShoutOut/LuckyStar Shout Out section]] is being built to put all the references that ''Lucky Star'' makes to other series.

There have been several spin-off {{manga}}s. The first, ''Lucky Star Pocket Travelers'', was later created and features the four main characters [[RuleOfFunny for no discernible reason whatsoever]] shrunk down to a few inches tall. [[HilarityEnsues Cue hilarity.]] A different bizarre spin-off, ''Boo Boo Kagaboo'', was made by the creator of ''[[Manga/HaruhiChan Nyoron Churuya-san]]''. It was licensed by BANDAI, but they later cancelled its release. Another spin-off manga, ''Manga/MiyakawaKeNoKuufuku'', was created in 2008, written and illustrated by Kagami Yoshimizu himself, starring Hikage and Hinata Miyakawa, two minor characters from the manga (who also briefly show up in the anime) who have money troubles and thus have trouble keeping food in the house. Hinata, however, is an avid otaku, and her impulse-buying tendencies only worsen their money troubles, much to Hikage's chagrin. An ONA adaptation was produced by Ordet in 2013 for the Spring season.

The anime is now available on [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/lucky-star Crunchyroll.]]

[[IThoughtThatWas Not to be]] [[NamesTheSame confused with]] a certain {{Madonna}} song, or with the [[LuckyStarr science-fiction novels by]] Creator/IsaacAsimov, or a ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' item, one of the "Chinatown bus" lines operating between Boston and New York City, or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Star anything else named as such.]]
----
!!This show provides examples of:

* AdamWesting: Creator/AyaHirano as herself, Creator/DaisukeOno as himself, YukoGoto as herself, and many others. Unfortunately, the show only plays with this using famous Japanese actors, so the English dub invariably loses a lot in translation (even though Bandai tries to maintain a pairing of {{seiyuu}} with dubbers).
** MinoruShiraishi.
* AdaptationExpansion: Although ConversationalTroping is the main feature of this series, {{Shout Out}}s are ''very'' rare in the manga -- twice with ''[[LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru Mari Mite]]'', once with ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', and once with ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' -- and the latter was published in a ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' magazine.
* {{Adorkable}}: Tsukasa, for certain.
* AffectionateParody: Intended with Patricia. Failed miserably, as Americans were not amused.
** ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'' is hilariously parodied when Konata is talking about finding love.
* AlertnessBlink: Konata has several in a row during the infamous chocolate cornet short.
* AnimalMotifs: Konata (fox), Tsukasa (dog), Kagami (rabbit), Miyuki (sheep/[[GagBoobs cow]]), Yui (leopard), Yutaka (squirrel), Minami (hawk).
** The manga features more sketches: Hiyori (tanuki), Kuroi (cat), Misao (monkey), Ayano (ferret), Yukari (bear).
* AnimatedActors: The cast of Lucky Channel, one is an aspiring anime actor, the other is a fading starlet whose upbeat persona conceals a moody, selfish, cynical side when she stops remembering/caring that she's meant to be acting.
** In the final episode, they nearly break character outside of the segment.
* AnimeAccentAbsence: Although Patricia is stated to be an exchange student rather than someone who has lived in the country for several years, she speaks Japanese just as well as the other girls and with just a slight trace of a foreign accent.)
** {{Lampshaded}} in the last non-{{omake}} episode, when she claims to 'not know those hard Nippon words.' And is subsequently told that she has 'been speaking fluently until now'.
*** In the {{manga}}, the author mentions that Patricia is only fluent on Japanese relevant to her hobbies.
*** The writers for the English dub realized that the joke wouldn't work in English, since Patricia and Kagami are both fluent, so they replaced it with Patricia saying, "[[SelectiveObliviousness I can't hear you!]] La la la la~"
* {{Animeland}}: Patricia seems to believe in this, Konata is usually just hanging a lampshade on it.
* ArtEvolution: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the {{omake}} of the {{manga}}'s second volume, when mangaka Yoshimizu tries to draw the first strip again.
** Early in the {{manga}}, Konata did not yet have her trademark "lazy," half-closed eyes.
* ArtisticAge
* ArtShift: The ''InitialD'', ''VideoGame/TrackAndField'', and ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' parodies, as well as every single time [[HotBlooded Anime Tenchou]] shows up.
** An extreme example of this is when Hiyori falls, and, in an attempt to protect her hand, does a dramatic action roll, changing her appearance to that of a [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure rather manly-looking, highly shaded character]].
** The anime will randomly show transition artwork of highly-detailed characters, completely different from those of the regular show. This is pretty funny when they actually are sitting next to the PuniPlush characters themselves.
** The Mobile Newtype strips of the manga manage to make the characters even ''[[SerialEscalation more]]'' PuniPlush.
** The Manga's chapter eye-catches are the characters with the PuniPlush toned down considerably, with more detailed characters to the point of FanService.
* AsHimself: In addition to Creator/MinoruShiraishi, all five of the Haruhi Suzumiya stars cameo in Lucky Star: Creator/DaisukeOno and Creator/YukoGoto on Lucky Channel, Creator/MinoriChihara and Creator/TomokazuSugita at Comiket, and Creator/AyaHirano at the concert.
* AsideGlance: More frequently, it happens when Konata makes a jab at Kagami.
* AuthorAvatar: [[http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh237/Pharine/LuckyCat1.gif A spherical cat]]. It may not be very apparent in the anime, but that's the way Yoshimizu drew himself in the manga {{omake}}s.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: [[UpToEleven Taken a step further]], in that the girls don't even seem to have buttcracks
* BeachEpisode
* BestBeerEver: Kuroi, during the BeachEpisode.
* BigShutUp: Kagami tends to give only big shut ups to Konata.
* BlandNameProduct: "Poppy" instead of Pocky, on the vol.2 manga cover.
* BlueWithShock: Several times, once notably by Hiyori when Yutaka innocently asked her a ... [[YuriFan compromising]] question.
** This seems to be one of the standard reactions to nearly everything--many questions and situations throughout the series are reacted to with rage or dread.
* BolivianArmyEnding: The main series of the {{anime}} ends just as the girls are about to perform their cheerleader routine in front of an audience.
** But then again, we've ''seen'' the same routine rehearsed a few minutes before... It's not like they'd just resort to StockFootage and add crowd cheer anyway.
* BondageIsBad: In episode 1, Konata blames the confinement crimes that have been happening in town, one incident lasting for two months, on dating sims. Kagami tells her that that's just her perspective.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick:
** Tsukasa is talking with Konata on the phone about something "cute," "stout," "rotund," and that it "looks like a froggie," then cheerfully says "yeah, depleted uranium, that's cool!"
** In episode 24, when they run out of masking tape, Misao says that she'll go buy some. Then she gets told to also buy markers, blades for the cutter, boxes, {{Playboy}}, and glue.
* BreatheOnTheFan: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKgli9fTysw Konata and Tsukasa do it]]. Kagami calls them out on it, but Kagami's father mentions that she does the same.
* BrickJoke:
** In the 143rd chapter of the manga, Konata comes to a conclusion to which end of a chocolate cornet is the head, referring to the discussion she had with Tsukasa in the ''very first episode''. Tsukasa points out that it was two years ago.
** There's another one in manga volumes 6 & 7. [[spoiler:In one strip in vol. 6, Konata's graduation prank of putting a love letter in Kagami's desk fails due to Kagami not going anywhere near her desk after the graduation ceremony. In vol. 7, Kou finds it in what is now her desk, and LoveLetterLunacy ensues until Konata happens to mention her graduation prank to Kagami.]]
** Early in the anime, Konata decides to give Kagami the nickname Kyou-chan[[note]]The reasoning being that both mean "mirror" in Japanese[[/note]], and Kagami decides that her nickname should be Kagami-sama (Kagami the Great), until Konata abuses it and she asks to just be addressed normally. In Episode 23, Konata uses that nickname again, well after the episode that joke was made in.
* ButtMonkey: Tsukasa flips between this and the Woobie depending on your sympathy. Konata and even Kagami certainly don't have much issue with pointing out much less academic, athletic and skilled she is.
* CaptainErsatz: Tsukasa is arguably an [[CaptainErsatz ersatz]] of Akari Kamigishi from ''VisualNovel/ToHeart'', which is LampShaded when Konata gives her Akari's school uniform in episode 4. Another similarity is that between Hiiragi twins and Rin and Sakura from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' (lampshaded by Konata's father in episode 10, and by Kagami briefly cosplaying as Rin in the OVA). A further possible example is the similarity of Kagami and Tsukasa to that of Kyou and Ryou, respectively, from ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'', even including the purple hair. Hell, they practically ARE the same. {{Tsundere}} protective, long-haired big sister, and calmer, AlwaysSecondBest, short-haired, little sister. These [[http://img3.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire1/e2c9ce95528435d8d857e73830d2e8171230600954_full.jpg pictures]] [[http://i27.tinypic.com/2qvt5pt.jpg testify]]
** This is even FURTHER [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in Ep. 16 when, stopping by a bookstore in Akihabara to buy some {{manga}} for Konata, several {{otaku}} start taking pictures of her, forcing her to say, "I'm not Kamigishi." One even asks her to say "Hiroyuki-chan" to further [[FetishFuel fuel]] the whole thing. Also, Konata attempts to give Kagami the nickname [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} Kyou]].
*** That last one is justified in that "Kyou" and "Kagami" are AlternateCharacterReading for a kanji that means "mirror."
** Kuroi-sensei bears a more than suspicious resemblance to [[Manga/ExcelSaga Excel Excel]], down to the cute little fang, and the suit Excel wore when she was a schoolteacher in Episode 11.
* CaramelldansenVid
* CatSmile: Seems to be an actual physical feature for Konata and her cousin Yui. Where she got it from is open to speculation since neither her father nor her mother had it.
** Been used in more than one DarkFic as a deformity.
** Yutaka sports one often enough and Soujiro shows hints of one - it seems to be something from her father's side of the family.
* CheatedAngle: When a character faces a different direction even slightly, their hairstyle gets mirror-flipped. A prominent example is Akira's hair in episode 16's Lucky Channel segment.
* CherryBlossoms: A brief scene in episode 15 combines this with DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything.
* TheChikan: In the manga, Yutaka tells Minami no one would attempt to grope her on the subway. Minami, in turn, starts to wonder if it's because of her [[ACupAngst body]].
* ChristmasCake: Rest assured, Miss Kuroi: you ''are'' wanted.
* ClassTrip: To Kyoto, where Konata insists on a visit to the KyotoAnimation studios.
* ColorFailure: Hiyori whites out and slowly dissolves away after staying up all night to beat a deadline.
** Happens to Shiraishi a lot too. This is also a pun on his name, as the "Shirai" in Shiraishi means white.
* ComicBookTime: Konata's circle were first-years when the manga started in February 2004, and were promoted to the second year in May 2004 and the third in May 2005, fitting a real-time timeline-- then they remained third-years until finally graduating in September 200'''8'''. And even after that there were still the odd strips where they're back in their high school uniforms for some reason.
** Averted in the anime, where they are second-years for the first half and third-years for the second half.
* ContinuityCameo: The anime has thrice showed the Miyakawa siblings ({{omake}}-only) in episodes 12, 16 and 24, and Hikaru Sakuraba (who was replaced by Shiraishi) in episode 24.
* ContinuityNod: The manga acknowledged [[TheDanza Shiraishi]] [[AnimatedActors replaced]] Hikaru.
* ContraltoOfDanger: Akira Kogami pretends to be [[StepfordSmiler a cheerful, high-pitched 14-year-old]] for the camera, but as soon as it's switched off, she reverts to her borderline psychotic, abusive real self with a husky contralto.
* ConversationalTroping: All the time, normally when Konata compares [[ThisIsReality real life]] to anime. Here's a [[WikiMagic progressively less]] partial list:
** SmashingWatermelons, not so popular in [[ThisIsReality real life]].
** BlindWithoutEm, sadly not giving Miyuki weird looking eyes
** {{Dojikko}}, cute character trait in fiction, but would get really annoying really quickly in reality
* CornerOfWoe: Konata does this when lamenting the cable company's inability to install cable TV, and hence Anime-channels, in her suburb.
* CranialEruption: Generally after Kuroi-sensei hits Konata for sleeping in class.
* CreditsJukebox
* CringeComedy: In episode 5, Narumi meets Kuroi. She thinks Kuroi is one of Konata's classmates, commenting on how endowed she is compared to Konata. After Kuroi says that she's actually her teacher, they have some small-talk conversation. Then the two forcibly laugh, but Narumi doesn't know why.
* CrossPoppingVeins
* CryCute: Kagami, who is absolutely adorable whenever she cries.
* CryingWolf: In episode 4, Konata gives two excuses to the teacher, one saying that she was helping a boy out and the second saying that she was hiding in a cafe with a girl. The teacher dismisses both excuses. Later, Konata gets a summer cold and calls the teacher asking for a sick leave. The teacher immediately declines the request while laughing. This is lampshaded in the next scene.
* CulturalCrossReference (Minoru Shiraishi: [[TheKarateKid "MIYAGI-SAAAAAAN!"]])
** Konata may not know the lyrics to Saiyuki, but most Brits of a Certain Age will know it by heart
* CulturalTranslation: The dub or the manga follows the Japanese text pretty closely (sometimes too closely), but sometimes have this, like translating [[{{muggles}} normal people]] into "mundanes" in the manga.
* CuteButCacophonic: Quite a number of the karaoke endings featuring Konata, but the mauling of the DragonBallZ theme suffers at her hands in the ending to Episode 5 is a ''particularly'' illustrative example.
** Which is HilariousInHindsight when you find out that Creator/AyaHirano is in fact [[HeReallyCanAct a popular singer]].
* CuteClumsyGirl:
** Miyuki. Konata mentions that Miyuki's clumsiness and air-headedness get her 'Moe points'
** In addition, Kagami asks Konata if she acts out this trope at her job at a CosplayCafe, like dropping her drinks (complete with demonstration), but Konata dismisses it as something cute in fiction but [[DeconstructedTrope just annoying in real life]].
* CuteLittleFangs: Miss Kuroi's and Misao's best feature.
* CutenessProximity
* DancingTheme: Done in full as a cheerleading routine in the final episode.
* DataVampires: Kuroi-sensei's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMlSsz6BDVQ&feature=related posting of a journal entry]].
* ADayInTheLimelight: Episode 19, which focuses on Hiyori Tamura almost exclusively.
** Cranked UpToEleven in the OVA, which starts with a chapter told from [[spoiler:Minami's ''dog, Cherry's'' point of view.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Kagami to Konata.
* DeepImmersionGaming: The OVA.
* DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment: "Please don't joke when your joke doesn't sound like a joke."
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Go on. [[spoiler:[[http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=1011534 Read and analyze]] the lyrics to "Motteke Sailor Fuku." You will never be able to look at the series in the same way ever again.]]
** Also, Konata's attempts to eat her chocolate cornet in the first episode, with it spurting chocolate and her licking the end repeatedly... sheesh, did I just make this page NSFW?
** In the same episode, Konata's demonstration of the tongue "push and shove" method of getting soft-serve ice cream to go into the cone.
** In a later episode, Konata lying on her back and pretend-choking on falling CherryBlossoms. The episode later included a parody on DaCapo.
** Also, while the characters are discussing fraternal and identical twins, Konata says "I guess all this talk about eggs and sausages and stuff got me hungry."
* EarlyBirdCameo:
** The appearance of many of the extras (Kagami's classmates, Yutaka and her own classmates) at the opening sequence ever since the first episode. Namely, many people wondered what's with the emotionless green-haired girl performing her cheerleading routines along with the other characters before even having any idea of who Minami was.
** In the show itself, Hiyori's first appearance (see FreezeFrameBonus below).
* EndingTheme: Subverted -- the endings for the first half of the series are the characters singing karaoke for the themes to ''other'' series. The second half consist of ''live-action'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a-cappella karaoke from Minoru]] (and in episode 16, Hiromi Konno)...
* EnthusiasmVersusStoicism
* [[ExpressiveHair Expressive]] [[ExpressiveShirt Hairpiece]]: Tsukasa has her bow droop when she's sad and spike up when she's shocked.
* {{Expy}}: Meito "Anime Tenchou" Anisawa may be an expy of Gai Daigoji from ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'': both share the love for flamboyant, over-the-top mannerisms and, of course, anime. Not to mention that both a voiced by Creator/TomokazuSeki. TheOtherWiki, however, also suggests that he may be related to Domon Kasshu from ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'', which is explicitly lampshaded in episode 17, not to mention both of them are created by the same person.
** Meito is actually the mascot of the An!mate (Animate) store chain. You can tell that he's voiced by Creator/TomokazuSeki just by looking at him, and yes, he looks exactly like Domom Kasshu.
**** Considering that Anime Tenchou was created by Kazuhiko Shimamoto, the god of the humorous hot-bloodness, and that he has participated in G-Gundam's characters creation... Well you can see the relation...
** The relationship of Minami and Yukata in the show is a straight Expy of Sakaki and Chiyo from Manga/AzumangaDaioh.
* EyeScream: Hiyori tries out contact lenses, and fellow {{Meganekko}} Miyuki is interested...[[spoiler: until a breeze blows dust in Hiyori's eyes.]]
* EyesAlwaysShut: Minoru Shiraishi, at least until after his breakdown.
** Also briefly during episode 7.
* FacelessMasses
* {{Fanservice}}: The series is very well known for its sheer abundance of the nonsexual variety. However, there have been complaints that too much of it revolves around KyoAni and their associates. The other variety shows up occasionally, but even the requisite FuroScene is rather clean.
* FestivalEpisode
* FirstNameBasis
* {{Flanderization}}: The {{omake}} in the third volume played with this, trying to flanderize the characters, so IllGirl Yutaka would [[BloodFromTheMouth spit up blood]] as she speaks, TheQuietOne Minami would only express herself by a piano, {{Tsundere}} Kagami would be more aggressive as she one-ups Konata, baseball fan Ms Kuroi would wear baseball suits to school and hits BookDumb Konata with a [[BatterUp baseball bat]], TheDitz Tsukasa would have an over-the-top reaction to food, Yui who DrivesLikeCrazy would always come with a crashed car, and [[{{Gainaxing}} Gainaxed]] Miyuki would become MsFanservice. They didn't do this to Konata since they thought she was already flanderized enough!
** Also a bit of a minor case in the anime, as Kagami sounds angrier in the English dub.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Kagami is Responsible and Tsukasa is Foolish.
* FourthWallMailSlot (in the [[ShowWithinAShow Lucky Channel section]])
* FreezeFrameBonus: Hiyori's first appearance in the anime is actually in episode 12, right before the Animate employees ask Konata what she thinks of their book.
* FreudianSlip: Hiyori Tamura (yuri {{fangirl}}) refers to herself as {{uke}} when discussing dodge ball positions before quickly correcting herself to "defender".
** InnocentInnuendo: Uke is actually the common martial arts term for the defender in sparing. It's use in {{yaoi}} is much more obscure and noticing the innuendo is more revealing then just ignoring it.
* FrothyMugsOfWater: In the [[ShowWithinAShow Lucky Channel]] of episode 16, we have seen [[HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight Akira]], supposedly a ninth grader, ordering some "brown stuff" in the karaoke. Although her drinking that was only a sound effect, its effects was unmistakeably alcoholic...
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: There are tons, but one funny event is in Episode 13, the Valentine episode. A few seconds before cutting to the main characters, we see one boy hand chocolates to another boy, who gets shocked-expression-lines. Later, we see them walking together and talking about it being the chocolate-hander's first time.
* FunSize: The "Pocket Travelers" SpinOff turns the four main girls into tiny versions and they have to figure out how to go back.
* FuroScene
* {{Gainaxing}}: Miyuki and Patricia. [[TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]] as well [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wakKkIjv2AA&feature=fvwrel during her cameo]].
* GenerationXerox: Konata looks almost like her mother's identical twin.
* GenericCuteness: In the manga, the "Tsundere ought to have pigtails" line was, if Kagami cut her pigtails, she would look "utterly forgettable." This explained why Kagami answered "Sorry that I look so boring!"
** Could apply to the entire case since Kagami and Tsukasa are described as being "plain." Also, most would agree Ms. Kuroi seems to be much more attractive than Narumi, who has a husband, but have trouble finding a husband. This could be explain by 4 things: 1) Her standards are too high, 2) Her personality, 3) The fact that she spends most of her free time playing MMO RPG games, or 4) Her looks are due to GenericCuteness.
* GeodesicCast
* GirlishPigtails: Kagami and Yutaka.
* GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies: Subverted. Only Tsukasa is particularly shown to be, while Konata and Kagami are shown to actively enjoy being scared by it. Tsukasa tells Miyuki later on that she only watches because she doesn't have a choice, though this is most likely her not wanting to be rude and just going along with things, rather than anyone actively forcing her to.
* GiveHimANormalLife: Of course Soujiro and Kanata were not superheroes, but Kanata said exactly that after she gave birth to Konata. She didn't want Konata to inherit [[OlderThanTheyLook her body]] and [[{{Otaku}} his personality]]-- but, well, we know it turned out to be the opposite of what she wanted...
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: In the opening theme, no less. This has spawned [[MemeticMutation countless parodies]]. DADADADADA!
* GivingUpTheGhost: Konata gives hers up after gaming for 3 days straight in episode 15. In the next scene, Miss Kuroi gives hers up after rushing to class so she wasn't late, then hurriedly telling the class to shift gears out of summer vacation and back to focusing on the start of the school year. She wasn't prepared herself.
** Hiyori Tamura does this after pulling off an all-nighter to meet her manga submission deadline.
* TheGlomp: Konata imagines glomping a guy one episode.
* GoOutWithASmile: Kanata in the manga is shown to be bearing an angelically sweet smile as she went to heaven. And right after that...
-->'''Soujirou''': I wish I can also die this way.
-->'''Konata''': But what kind of death would come with a smile?
-->'''Soujirou''': From {{Moe}}?
-->'''Konata''': It's not that you would have a good death anyway...
** The previous conversation is also '''unholy''' MoodWhiplash.
* GoldfishScoopingGame: In the aforementioned FestivalEpisode. Kagami apparently pampered and fed the goldfish so much it grew to an unusual size.
* GratuitousEnglish: It's used straight sometimes, but more notable is the opening theme, which tends to keep a Gratuitous English-like tone and contents even when, as for most of the lines, it's in Japanese.
** A minor example was that the manga author thought Patricia's name should be spelt "Patoricia."
** "Don't mind..."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nHbQuz3uww "Don't touch me."]]
** "No!" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3E9SMEDWAc "Yes"]].
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xK2FyIDsfgM YES!!!]].
*** "STRONGER!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yq9oCYIpqhg L! O! VWEE! E! LOV-UH-LEE! TSUKASA!]]
** "WELCOME TO IDAHO!"
* GreekChorus: Akira and Minoru in [[ShowWithinAShow Lucky Channel]].
* HairColors: Sort of lampshaded in the beach episode: Miyuki explains how the combination of salt and sunlight can bleach hair, turning it light brown. This coming from a pink-haired character addressing blue and purple-haired ones.
* {{Hatsuyume}}: Miyuki points out that the list follows on with a fan, tobacco, and a blind man. Konata wonders who dreams about these sorts of things anyway, what sort of dream will include all these elements, and how many people remember what they dream about that clearly.
* HeroismIncentive: Konata's father offered her video game systems depending on the rank of school she got into.
** Patricia pulls this tactic out when dealing with Konata as well. Konata had heard about Patricia's cheerleading request in advance, and was going to politely turn her down. But before Konata could do so, Patricia informs her that she has a rare ticket to see Creator/AyaHirano perform, and what was it that Konata was going to say?
* HetIsEw / EveryoneIsGay: In a series with a grand total of '''four''' recurring male characters, all who are considerably older than the main cast, this is understandable. Add in copious amounts of RomanticTwoGirlfriendship and LesYay and this is inevitable.
** Soujiro x Nanako and Minoru x Akira have a following.
** One could possibly ship Tsukasa and Minoru, especially after Minoru's ED song "Kaorin no Theme" ([[Creator/KaoriFukuhara Kaori(n) Fukuhara]] is Tsukasa's seiyuu). Then again, seeing Tsukasa's reaction to "Sebasatian" in one of his few in-show appearances...
*** Then Minoru did a second song called "Emirin no Theme". [[Creator/EmiriKatou Emiri(n) Katou]] is ''Kagami's'' seiyuu.
** Every single character has shown interest in the opposite sex though, in fact the only characters who shown interest in the same sex are the three otaku girls and Kagami in the OVA.
* HexagonalSpeechBalloon
* HostileShowTakeover: The opening theme for ''Miyakawa Ke no Kuufuku'' - as seen in the DVD release - starts to show the ''Lucky Star'' logo before Hikage runs in to cover it up.
* HotBlooded: Anime Tenchou has to be put out with a hose, and even sets Shiraishi on fire.
--->'''Shiraishi''': This back of mine is burning red!
* HumanHummingbird: Yui often greets with the one-arm mode.
* IdenticalTwinIDTag
* IdiotHair: Konata, although not an idiot by any definition of the word.
** Akira too, and it'd be suicide to call ''her'' an idiot...
** Yui has a very thin one.
* IKnowMortalKombat: Konata, played straight and then lampshaded in the same episode.
** Although it's Street Fighter (Guile to be precise)
* ImageSong: Only 13 of the singles are actually called character songs, but many others qualify.
* IncrediblyLamePun: The tour guide (and Shiraishi) from episode 21 is really fond of these.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: Voice of the cake restaurant waitress/Comiket vendor/Kyoto tour guide/etc. Sounds odd and a bit unnerving that all these people would have the same husky middle-aged woman's voice. You might recognize that voice as [[{{Naruto}} Orochimaru]]'s seiyuu, {{Kujira}}. The dub does one better by having most of them be voiced by a male, though it isn't SteveBlum... but Creator/DerekStephenPrince, who does Shino. And even better: at one point, you see ''six'' of the very same middle-aged woman at once!
* InherentlyFunnyWords: ''"Barusamiko suu"'' (balsamic vinegar) is apparently this in Japanese.
* InkSuitActor: Minoru. Also, Daisuke Ono (better known as [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Itsuki Koizumi]]), who replaces him in Lucky Channel while he's off at Mt. Fuji to get water for Akira (and he is still present in the studio [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome when Minoru snaps]]).
* InstantCosplaySurprise: Konata and Kagami in the OVA dream sequence.
* ItCameFromTheFridge: Whatever Tsukasa found that was so horrible it got censored
* ItsASmallWorldAfterAll: Said almost word for word in episode 15.
* ItsRainingSalesmen: Anime Tenchou and his employees
* {{Joshikousei}}: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the opening song.
* {{Kotatsu}}: Konata and her Dad asleep, [=D'AAAWW=].
* LampshadeHanging (Much of the dialogue discusses various tropes, whether relevant to the show itself or not.)
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: Used to absurd extents, in one case intentionally. Other KyotoAnimation properties (and Sunrise's ''KeroroGunsou'', for some reason) remain unbleeped.
* LoveLetterLunacy: During the trip to Kyoto, Kagami turns the episode from a comedic to a poignant one when she receives a letter from what she believes is a secret crush. [[spoiler:Turns out the guy just wanted a trinket that would be embarrasing to ask for in public. It crushes her spirits, but leads to one of her [[Heartwarming/{{Anime}} most heartwarming moments in the show.]]]]
* LuckyCharmsTitle: ''Lucky☆Star''.
* LuminescentBlush: This very obvious blush is proof that Kagami isn't that [[{{Tsundere}} annoyed]] by Konata's presence.
* MagicSkirt: Especially during the OP.
** During the live concert, the camera just happens to switch to a view from behind their backs at the high kick in a cheerleader skirt in the theme song.
* MeasuringDay: The pilot episode.
* MediumAwareness: In the OVA's Lucky Channel, Akira points out the credits in the middle of the screen.
** The series theme song is also hummed by Tsukasa during the BeachEpisode, and the final scene of the anime is the girls performing the same cheerleader routine they did in the opening, to the theme song.
* {{Medley}}: Behold, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6408xT0vDDw Kumikyoku Lucky Star Douga]]
* {{Miko}}: Tsukasa, Kagami and their two older sisters. Pretty much inevitable given that their father is a Shinto priest.
* MoodWhiplash: While Episode 22 is by far the most notable case of this, this actually happens quite often throughout the series. Konata herself seems to love invoking this trope (it's unclear, perhaps deliberately so, whether or not it's intentional on her part).
* MotorMouth: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65HROb-YotA Kagami's image song.]]
* {{Mukokuseki}}: The American girl in the cast is, of course, blue-eyed blonde.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Anime Tenchou cranks this UpToEleven.
** Also [[DrivesLikeCrazy Yui's driving]] and Hiyori's epic SloMo midair turnaround so her drawing hand doesn't sustain injury during a fall.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWWYMqiUcEs Now with appropriate BGM]].
** And the [[Series/TwentyFour 24]] style presentation of Sou, Yui and Yukata preparing for Konata's birthday.
* MutualEnvy: The HugeSchoolgirl Minori envies her best friend Yutaka for being small and cute, all the while Yutaka envies Minori for being tall and cool.
* NWordPrivileges: The word ''{{otaku}}'' is considered degrading in Japan, so in Japanese manga or anime, that word is avoided unless if it's an otaku (Konata, Hiyori etc.) who said it. However, the word is no longer considered degrading outside of Japan, and the Kadokawa-Bandai dub uses the word as much as needed.
* NeverTrustATrailer: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ea54l8MWoqg pre-release trailer for the anime]] was a still shot of Konata's CatSmile face and her voice actress going "muuUUuu" for thirty seconds. Whether this is playing it straight or a subversion depends on the viewer.
** Konata had [[OffModel no neck]] in that trailer. We're all glad that wasn't so in the actual show.
* NewYearSameClass: Although poor Kagami gets stuck in a different class again.
* NiceCharacterMeanActor: Akira
* NoAntagonist: There's no evil overlord here, although Konata would like to think of homework, and occasionally her teacher, as one.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Konata in ''[[LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru Mari Mite]]'' mode.
* NoCommunitiesWereHarmed: The shows takes place in clearly recognizable locales in Saitama, Kasukabe and Washinoya.
* NoFourthWall: Konata tends to make asides about Tsukasa to the audience.
* NoHuggingNoKissing (This is the best way to describe the romance in this show, as confirmed by WordOfGod. The LesYay are very subtle at best and any more than that is in the heads of the fanboys (or fangirls). The closest thing to hints of romance is the LapPillow scene between [[LesYay Yutaka and Minami]]. There's the tease confession scene between Kagami and a nameless boy, but considering Kagami's change in behavior after receiving the supposed "love letter" is safe to assume she was hesitant if accept the boy or reject him for Konata.
** One of the more subtle examples is Kagami worrying that it would be problematic if her pet goldfish came back in human form as a wife beater, a reference to the anime AngelTales.
** Arguably, subverted in the games (at least the PS2 version).
* NoThemeTune: Subverted in the last episode, it starts out without one but all the girls perform it near the end.
** Played straight for ''Miyakawa Ke no Kuufuku'', where we only see a similar opening shot to that of the main show's while Hikage's class says "All assembled". Likely justified, considering that the ending theme for each episode is cut short due to an in-universe shoestring budget courtesy of how much money Hinata blows on all her otaku bullshit.
* NoodleIncident: Frequently we hear only the tail end of a humorous story, usually ending with "It stunk, didn't it?"
** Probably talking about [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuso kuso]]-- literally "shit," but meant parody in East Asian Internet culture.
*** Episode 20 had a scene where Hiyori said "...but I got confused and I was stuck for 3 hours". Stuck where?
* NoodleImplements: In episode 5 Tsukasa is talking to Konata about something that "kinda looks like a frog." Depleted uranium is then mentioned. See BreadEggsMilkSquick above.
* OcularGushers: Universally applied.
* OddFriendship: An unanimated strip in Volume 8 discussed why would Hiyori, "an {{otaku}} in every sense of the word," be friends with "honour students" Minami and Yutaka.
* OhCrap: Izumi Wakase's reaction to Hiyori when she spots her at Comiket.
** The reaction of the people surrounding Patricia Martin as she talks about anime and manga.
** When Soujirou walked out looking for toilet paper and gets spotted by Yutaka.
** "Tamura-san! What's {{Yaoi}}?"
* OlderThanTheyLook: PuniPlush made every teen and adult to fall in this except [[{{Lolicon}} Soujiro]]. And the extreme cases of this fell on the women around Soujiro: his late wife Kanata was 1.43m, his 17-18 year-old daughter Konata is 1.42m, and his live-in niece Yutaka is 1.38m. Being GenreSavvy, Konata wondered if Soujiro has a case of {{Lolicon}}, and knew she and Yutaka would certainly be FetishFuel for other lolicon.
* OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase: "Look forward to it!"
* OneHeadTaller: This is in no small part the reason that [[YuriFan Hiyori]] ships Minami/Yutaka. [[HugeSchoolgirl Minami]] is 25cm taller than [[OlderThanTheyLook Yutaka]].
* OneWePreparedEarlier: The first episode is essentially as plotless as the rest.
* OnlySixFaces: One strip {{lampshade}}s this: Hiyori's uncle read the doujinshi she drew, and while he had no problem on the content, he complained about ''everyone looking the same''. Then Hiyori asked Kou: "Isn't TsurimeEyes and TaremeEyes different enough already!?"
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent
* OrwellianRetcon: A minor example: Konata was originally portrayed as a cool GamerChick, but was soon [[CharacterizationMarchesOn changed]] into a down-to-earth, sort-of-[[LoveableSexManiac pervy]] OtakuSurrogate. When the {{yonkoma}} were collected into volumes, Yoshimizu changed Konata's lines to make her image consistent. Because he only changed a few strips very early in the series and [[WordOfGod Yoshimizu discussed that]] in the {{omake}}, it is not as unpleasant.
* OutOfFocus: Miyuki slipped out throughout the anime's run (see the CharacterSheet). In subsequent manga [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming episodes]] (the anime only got up to Volume 4), [[spoiler:the four main girls themselves have actually gone out, since they have graduated in 2008 and went to separate colleges, with only Konata and ''Misao'' going to the same school]]. The focus in 2010 has more been on a New Generation as well as health teacher Hikaru Sakuraba and [[HospitalHottie school nurse]] Fuyuki Amahara (Hikaru only made a cameo appearance in the last TV episode of the anime).
* ParentalHypocrisy: An example with a teacher rather than a parent. Kuroi Sensei plays the same online game as Konata, and has been into [=MMORPGs=] since before she was Konata's age, but she tells Konata off for doing that very thing, and uses in-game chat to remind her to do her homework.
* PersonalityBloodTypes: Discussed. Doesn't seem to be accurate at all, seeing [[SiblingYinYang Kagami and Tsukasa]] are of the same blood type...
** Didn't Kagami call back Konata and say something like "Twins can have different bloodtypes and Konata was right", at least in anime version?
* PervertDad: Though he tends to at least attempt to keep focus on Konata's classmates instead of his own daughter. He does like taking pictures though...
* PhenotypeStereotype: Patricia Martin, who has the orange (presumably intended to be reddish-blonde) hair and blue eyes compared to the rainbow spectrum that is the rest of the cast. She's also one of the taller cast members, as well as one of the more, er, [[{{Gainaxing}} prominent]].
** Curiously enough, Kagami's classmate Ayano has hair a slighty darker shade of orange, and Kuroi-sensei is actually ''blonde'' and ''green-eyed''.
* PlayingSick: Konata used this, among with others, to skip from school.
** Which turned into a case of CryingWolf when she ''did'' get sick.
* PolarOppositeTwins: [[{{Tsundere}} Kagami]] and [[TheDitz Tsukasa]].
* PornStash: Discussed like everything. Konata said [[DirtyOldMan her father]] does not peek into her communication records since he knew what happened when "people peeps into his D: drive."
** It's also [[LampshadeHanging made fun of]] in the episode where the Hiiragi twins sleep over at the Izumi residence: Kagami looks at Konata's closet, insinuating that this must be where she keeps hers. Konata responds that since she shares that stuff with her dad, ''he'' handles storage.
** '''D:'''
* PostEpisodeTrailer
* ProductPlacement: Works published by its publisher Kadokawa Shoten kept appearing in the series. The appearance of Animate and Gamers references was not coincidental; some of the series' strips were published in the in-store magazines of the said chains.
* PuniPlush: Remember, they're 16, not [[strike:13]] 10.
** The manga tends to [[{{eyecatch}} have a picture]] of one of the characters chibified (or almost so) at the beginning and end of each chapter.
** The manga's Mobile Newtype strips take PuniPlush UpToEleven.
* PunnyName: May not be deliberate on the mangaka's part, but Kanata's name means "there," vis-a-vis Konata's "here." This meaning is ''heavily'' used in merchandise related to Kanata.
* PuppyDogEyes
* QuiveringEyes
* RapunzelHair: Everyone with hair that isn't shoulder length has it down to their legs. Lampshaded in episode 8. "But it took FOREVER for you to grow it that long!"
** "Timotei!"
* RealPlaceBackground: The most notable case being the use of the Washinomiya shrine for the Hiiragi shrine in the opening credits. It spawned a pilgrimage of fans who traveled to the shrine.
* RealSongThemeTune: The ending for the first half of the first season features the four seniors singing karaoke versions of classic anime and idol songs.
* RecycledINSPACE: {{Seinfeld}}, replacing nasty-and-selfish American adults with [[MoeMoe sweet and lovable]] teenage schoolgirls.
** Konata resembles the Seinfeld characters more than the others.
* ReferenceOverdosed
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: The Hiiragi sisters Inori, Matsuri, Kagami and Tsukasa were all Shinto-related, meaning "prayer," "festival," "mirror" and "priest" respectively. (The mirror's religious significance in Shinto is adequately explained by Kagami herself.) [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since their father is a Shinto priest.
* {{Retcon}}: In manga vol. 7, Patricia Martin is introduced as a new character, ignoring all of her previous appearances.
** Patty had mostly been an {{Omake}}-only character before.
* ReturningTheHandkerchief: Yutaka and Minami first met through this. However, as Minami was the more masculine one of the pair, this trope was [[InvertedTrope inverted]].
* RunningGag: Whenever Tsukasa gets to do an episode preview, she doesn't get to finish.
** She always loses her cellphone. And also, "Balsamic Vinegar".
** The "Doesn't it stink?" conversations.
** Minami's concern over her lack of...um, growth.
* SailorFuku: The girls all wear them, and the opening theme song is even named after them.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]], as Hiyori often breaks into a [[CovertPervert daydream]] about Minami and Yutaka in such a relationship, and constantly has to remind herself not to think about her friends that way.
* SchoolgirlSeries
* SeinfeldianConversation: Fully half the dialogue of the series; the other half is {{Shout Out}}s. In fact, the trope was formerly named Chocolate Cornet.
* {{Sensei-chan}}: Kuroi-sensei.
* ShipTease [[spoiler: Kagami's dream sequence]] in the OVA.
* ShoutOut: Too many to count. One particularly notable one is Konata's gift to Kagami in the fourth episode of the anime: a red armband that reads Brigade Chief. Kagami is confused when she receives it, and says that it would look better on Konata instead; considering Konata's voice actress is none other than Aya Hirano, the same seiyuu who played Haruhi, this little exchange becomes both brilliant and hilarious.
** ...And guess what Konata's costume is at her cosplay cafe? [[spoiler: Haruhi, which again is hilarious since Aya changes her voice to be perfect for the role.]]
** The anime is so well-known for its shout outs, [[ShoutOut/LuckyStar we have a special page for those]].
* ShowWithinAShow: Lucky Channel
* SiblingYinYang: [[GenkiGirl Yui]] and [[IllGirl Yutaka]] {{lampshaded}} by Konata in front of Yutaka, saying one sibling "absorbs" attributes from the other. When Yutaka mentioned that to Minami, Minami wondered if Miyuki absorbed ''something else'' from her, since the two were pretty close and often acted like siblings...
* SitcomCharacterArchetypes:
** Konata is the Wisecracker
** Kagami is the Square
** Soujirou is the Dork
** Tsukasa is the Goofball
** Miyuki is the Precocious
* SliceOfLife: Parodied. Conversations tend to be about ridiculous (yet somehow hilarious) topics such as the proper way to eat a chocolate cornet.
* SophisticatedAsHell: In episode 4, Kagami complains that she has regained her weight. Konata asks if that's a senryu poem, showing Kagami's complaint in traditional senryu format.
--> ''It's my weight again!''
--> ''I gained it all back''
--> ''{{Like|IsLikeAComma}}, in the blink of an eye!''
* SoundEffectBleep: Played for laughs by Konata and her dad. They censored random words in their conversations about Gund*m, leading to some funny word parfait.
** Any names of anime, video games, or other media is replaced with a comedic sound effect, like a cowbell or tuba. (Pok*BLAH*on)
* TheSouthpaw: The majority of the cast are left-handed, including both of the Hiiragi twins.
* SpinOff - ''Lucky Racer'', a live-action sports show organized by Minoru Shiraishi, where he races other fellow ''Lucky Star'' staff (and once with Misao's seiyu) in go-carts. Went to a [[{{Revival}} second season.]]
** A spin-off anime focusing on Hinata and Hikage called ''The Miyakawa Family's Hunger'' aired in Spring 2013. The first episode adapts the sisters' first sole comic pages from ''Lucky Star''.
* SqueakyEyes
* StupidStatementDanceMix (Something about the cute voices makes this preposterously easy. As such, stupid statement dance mixes amount to roughly 87% of the show's total MemeticMutation. And it doesn't help that most of the character song singles come with ''official'' ones -- Kanata and Soujiro's CD avoided this and were given a duet instead.)
** The opening thems song "Motteke Sailor Fuku" itself has about a dozen or so official remix versions ranging in every form of techno, electro, trance, and house music you can think of. Also, Minoru Shiraishi too.
* SurrealThemeTune
* TakeOurWordForIt:
** Konata making a funny face in anime ep. 2.
** Nakatani [[WhenSheSmiles smiling]] in manga vol. 7's ''Akira Nation'' special.
* ThemeTuneCameo: The karaoke endings.
* ThunderShock
* TokenYuriGirls:
** Hiyori is a YuriFan / artist, though it's apparently nonsexual for her.
** [[WMG/LuckyStar Some people]] assume that Konata and Kagami, despite the personality clash, may secretly be these. Konata [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship playfully flirting]] with Kagami and Tsukasa after a ''[[LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru Marimite]]'' session doesn't exactly help her case. Don't forget Kagami's FreudianSlip in the OVA. WordOfGod says either Konata or Kagami has an unrequited crush on the other, without specifying whom. Konata has said she's [[ExactWords not a lesbian]], which implies that she might simply be [[BiTheWay bisexual]].
** Yutaka and Minami are even more blatant, even after you remove all the parts of the show that were viewed through Hiyori's YuriGoggles. Konata remarked on this a couple times, though it's not entirely clear if she's joking or serious.
* TrueCompanions
* TwoTeacherSchool (Actually a One Teacher School in anime. [[spoiler:Hikaru from manga's Lucky Channel later ascended to be Kagami's class teacher.]])
* {{Understatement}}: In one strip in manga vol. 6, Minami's clothes are scuffed up, and when asked about it states that she "took a notable spill." In the next strip, the "notable spill" turns out to have been [[spoiler:saving a little boy from being caught in a traffic accident.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: Konata and Kagami can be quite vicious to each other, although they'd probably happily donate every organ in their body to the other if the need arose.
* WeddingsInJapan: One discussion revolves around the religious complexity of a {{Miko}} wanting to have a Western-style wedding dress and ceremony.
* WeightWoe: Kagami.
* WidgetSeries: Anybody who has not been an otaku wouldn't understand this show ''at all.''
** [[TomatoInTheMirror Oh]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation dear]].
** Well, there's probably an exception for victims of TVTropesWillRuinYourLife.
* WishfulProjection: Konata assumes a large foreigner is a violent kidnapper.
* XMeetsY: ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' meets ''{{Seinfeld}}'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on even more sedative]].
** But since, acording to the Azumanga Daioh page, that show is Peanuts on LSD, that would make Lucky Star actually ''{{Peanuts}} meets LSD meets {{Seinfeld}} meets sedatives''.
* {{Yonkoma}}: Where it all began.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: All four of the main girls. Lampshaded in the bath scene.
** Interestingly, Miyuki and Konata's seem to be genetic, whilst Tsukasa and Kagami both have normal haired parents.
* YouRemindMeOfX: Konata's dad makes an, ah, disturbing comment regarding how similar she is to her mother.
--> '''Soujirou:''' "But you know, you feel more and more like Kanata when I hold you. It makes my heart race!"
--> '''Kanata and Konata:''' "Don't just blurt out risque statements!"
** In the English dub, it becomes this:
--> '''Soujirou:''' You know, when I hold you, it feels like I'm holding Kanata, and I really like it!
--> '''Kanata and Konata:''' You shouldn't say creepy things like that! ''Ever!''
* YoungerThanTheyLook: A pretty strange case: maybe because the teens around Yui [[OlderThanTheyLook have problems regarding height]], when she first appeared in the FestivalEpisode, she took Konata's friends as her ''upperclassmen''.
** Miyuki, who is (physically and [[{{Ojou}} mentally]]) more mature than the rest of the characters, was often mistook as much older than they were. Lately, this has became her BerserkButton, especially when her mother Yukari is taken to be ''younger'' than Miyuki herself.
