Its summer time and the girls all go to a summer festival where they see their teacher and Konataâ€™s cousin Yui. They then later talk about summer in general as they all spend it different ways.
Wow, itâ€™s sad how much this episode connected to me on an actual personal level. Not that Iâ€™m so engrossed with the show that Iâ€™m worshiping it, but just the events portrayed specially in this episode really did connect. In fact, I think thatâ€™s one of the things that makes this show funny is that even though Konata is rather unique character and does a lot of slacking off, she really does things just like a lot of viewers would do. Itâ€™s not just her either, although sheâ€™s a big part of it. This episode and the whole series in general really does have some of those â€œIâ€™ve done thatâ€ or â€œI know exactly what she means or feelsâ€ moments to them which really make the show connect. It may be partially because I play some MMOs, but there are other more normal life stuff like just the slacking off from doing homework, or what Yui said to do and just write something that looks like you worked on it.
I absolutely loved the part where Konata said that when you learn something from Tsukasa it feels like youâ€™ve really failed. I thought that was just so hilarious, but at the same time I felt sorry for Tsukasa too. I also really liked Konataâ€™s speech about how you have to get three of something, one for preservation, one to look at, and one extra. Iâ€™m going to try as hard as I cant o actually say that or use that line sometime, whether it be in real life or somewhere online. Konata truly is the epitome of otakuism, not portraying the super super nerdy kind that you sometimes see, but showing someone who is obsessed with them that they seem to be an expert to the point that itâ€™s a philosophy. Thatâ€™s one of the continually best parts about the show is how Konata preaches and explains things like sheâ€™s surprised others donâ€™t know it. It goes back to what I said above about the show really connecting with people, as the viewers of the show are likely to connect with a lot of the otaku peachiness of the church of Konata.
Lucky Channel does seem to be loosing some of its charm, but I still think itâ€™s rather fun to watch. I donâ€™t really know what its missing, as I canâ€™t really think of anything in particular. Akira is still by far the best part about it, and is still and seems like she will remain my second favorite character in the series. Her personality completely makes all of Lucky Channel what it is, but with only that to go on it can wear a bit thin without some good content for her personality to go nuts on.
