Kagami Yoshimizu’s Lucky Star, a beloved slice-of-life manga, will resume publication this November after an absence of eight years.
Most viewers undoubtedly thought that Kagami Yoshimizu’s massively popular Lucky Star series had ended after eight years. At the same time, we welcome being proven wrong in this case.
Lucky Star Revived
Kagami Yoshimizu’s comic, Lucky Star, went on an indefinite hiatus back in 2014 due to Yoshimizu taking on a new project. After eight years, readers probably figured the slice-of-life manga was doomed to join the ranks of the many series that never return from hiatus.
When a creator decides to move on and never return, it’s usually because of the fast pace at which the anime and manga businesses operate. And it’s not as though Lucky Star was returning to a continuing plot or something.
Nonetheless, this week, the third edition of Mitania! magazine from Kadokawa, including a rebirth of Lucky Star, will be released on November 10th, as was revealed on the Kan Colle official Twitter account.
Mania! is an interactive news and manga publication that focuses mostly on the KanColle series. Which Yoshimizu, it turns out, strongly endorses. In 2003, Kadokawa’s Comtiq magazine ran a serialization of Lucky Star. But now that it’s back, it’s moving this new magazine.
About Lucky Star
In Lucky Star, four Japanese high school students named Konata Izumi, Kagami Hiiragi, Tsukasa Hiiragi, and Miyuki Takara star in a series of brief, four-panel comics. Konata Izumi plays the lead role, and she is shown as sluggish and disinterested in school since she would rather play video games and read the manga. Which I’m sure many of the show’s actual viewers can relate to.
It’s a slice-of-life series that doesn’t have a central theme or storyline that keeps going. Unlike most manga, Lucky Star more closely resembles western newspaper comics in both tone and aesthetics. The brief chapters also make manga convenient to read in small bursts whenever you have a spare moment. Or it can be easily adapted into a series of lighthearted and carefree animation episodes. Both seasons of the anime plus the OVA film are available to watch online at no cost thanks to Funimation.

In addition to the official parody manga, Boo Boo Kagaboo, the Lucky Star manga also spawned the spin-off manga Miyakawa-ke no Kfuku, which ran from December 2003 to 2014. and a live concert and musical, in addition to more manga, light novels, video games, an audio drama, and so on.
We don’t know if the anime will continue or when the new manga will be translated into languages other than Japanese. Given the Lucky Star manga’s cult following, though, we expect this to happen sooner rather than later.
For the time being, the manga may be read in its entirety as it was published by Bandai Entertainment, and the anime can be viewed in its entirety via Funimation’s online streaming services.
