Lucky☆Star Episode 16 — Ring
Published January 18, 2012
Konata shows off her new cell phone, which can play songs as ringtones; she reveals her ringtone to be "The Mikuru Legend of Love". At school, Miyuki talks about how her and her mother can sometimes be forgetful of things and how much time they spent together. Kagami, Tsukasa, and Miyuki are invited to the cosplay café Konata works at, but on the way they were asked to buy a comic magazine and a new Code Geass dōjinshi. Men outside of the comic store start to take pictures of Tsukasa because she looks like Akari Kamigishi from ToHeart, but Kagami intervenes and pulls Tsukasa into the store. When they arrive at the café, Konata is cosplaying as Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and there are two other employees dressed as Mikuru Asahina (Patricia Martin) and Yuki Nagato, along with a customer resembling Kyon. Konata and the two dressed as Yuki and Mikuru do the dance sequence to the song "Hare Hare Yukai", Tsukasa and Miyuki were impressed, Kagami was not for the most part, but smiled a bit after it was over. The employees speak like the characters they are cosplaying when they serve; Konata speaks like Haruhi and imitates her exact voice (being that the voice actresses of Haruhi and Konata in both the English and Japanese versions of the series are the same). In Lucky Channel, it turns out that the concert talked about in the previous episode turns out be nothing more than a karaoke performance. Akira is quite angered at this, but still sings regardless. The show ends before Akira can finish her song, but the song continues into the credits.
