Lucky Channel Plot Summary

Akira Kogami and Minoru Shiraishi are introduced, When a letter sender asks Akira how much an idol is usually paid, Akira's cutesy persona melts away and starts openly complaining about the fact that her checks are still processed the same way back when she debuted as a child actress. Akira's manager and parents seem to skim off the major part of the pay, leaving her with a paltry allowance.



  • The newspaper article Kagami was reading is taken from the Yasuyoshi Kobayashi case. Kobayashi kidnapped and held a girl in confinement with a dog leash on her. He confessed to wanting to keep her as his slave. His nickname among some people was "Kobayashi Ouji", due to his good looks. Online, he is known as the "Confining Prince".
  • A parody of Guile from Street Fighter II appears in the "Strange Foreigner" scenario that shows Konata beating the latter up using Ryu's moves to save Tsukasa.
  • The ending theme in the Karaoke Bar that is sung by Konata is the opening theme of the 1970's tokusatsu series Uchuu Tetsujin Kyodain (eng:Space Ironmen Kyodain).
