About Dustin

Dustin (aka Stilts) enjoys playing and yelling at video games, especially RPGs. He also likes super robot shows… the more outrageous the plot, the better!

    Finally, I hear someone mention Azumanga. It’s one of the giant elephants in the room as the textbook example of the genre, but it seems that it’s from too long ago for anyone to talk about on this blog. I’ve watched all the way through both Lucky Star and Azumanga (including the OVA and the Short Movie), and find happy mediums between them-Lucky Star has more universal appeal because almost anyone can relate to it at some point, but it’s not really plot-driven aside from the progression of time. Azumanga is the opposite; harder to relate to because the characters have such well-defined personalities, but more consistently hilarious and plot-driven.
    I applaud your excellent work. ^^
