Lucky☆Star Episode 12 — Let's Go To The Festival
Published January 18, 2012
Konata, Kagami, and Tsukasa go to Comiket 71, at the end of 2006. While Kagami can bear the massive event, Tsukasa can't take too much, being a first-timer, and is eventually unable to get what Konata asked her to pick up. Meanwhile, it appears that Akira Kogami appears, as declared in the previous episode's Lucky Channel. However, it turns out to be just a cardboard cut-out of her with a message stating that Akira cannot attend because of sudden illness. After the morning trip around Comiket, Konata meets Tsukasa and Kagami at a New Year festival and receives very bad luck in a lottery drawing. At home, Konata goes out of her way to be nice to her dad in order to receive her otoshidama. She logs in to her game to wish others a happy new year only to once again encounter her teacher online. In Lucky Channel, Minoru is the one doing the intro. Akira is still present, but she is wearing a mask over her mouth. Minoru explains that Akira suddenly fell ill and therefore could not appear in episode twelve of Lucky Star.
