needs a dub
Not speaking Japanese (yes I'm a crass American) I had to read the subtitles which were a very literal translation. This threw off the timing of the comedy, and also caused half the jokes to blow by me. Why is it funny when Patty calls Cheri a tuna?
I feel the need to quote Sgt. Frog: "Bandai, why do you do this to me when I love you."
There's a great cast for this show, and it's popular enough it should have been financially viable to do one. Bottom line you miss Wendee Lee, Khari Whalgreen (sp?), and Michelle Ruff when you are used to getting them.
Visually, still great. The sight gags still play, but that's only half the funny.
Big "Lucky Star" fans should grab it, but get it on sale (maybe from Right Stuf) because they never finished the US release.

a great little comedy
This is a great anime for someone who loves reading subtitles and prefers the original Japanese anime over dubbed versions [like myself]
One word of advice is to be a fast reader or you just might miss a great comment! Love the jokes/insults/comments made by the characters. The opening song also always makes me laugh and is so catchy.
