Lucky Star is an animated program based on the hit manga series. The setting at first seems to be a typical slice of life style show. One has the usual collection of high school friends who go about their day to day lives. The main difference comes from the nature of the central protagonist. Konata Izumi is a departure from the normal protagonist in similar shows. Instead of being outgoing, she's sedate. Instead of being popular, she's a bit withdrawn. Instead of being athletic, she's happy to stick with video games and obscure pop culture. In short, she's one of the first examples of a school girl character who's the focus, a bit nerdy and who's shown to be quite OK with that fact.

The tone is unique in blending what many would term absurdist humor with continuity within the general high school lifestyle. Each character is seen to grow and change within the context of the overall series. However, at the same time events are often exaggerated to a large extent to create an amusing atmosphere. This is especially true during the ending segments which often take on a darker and often fourth wall breaking tone.
