Pettanko Thursday – Yutaka, Minami, Akira

Kobayakawa Yutaka and Iwasaki Minami

Hello☆Lucky~ Yes, this time we are exploring the flatnesses of Lucky Star. At first, it might seem that all the characters are flat, but that’s caused by the animation style. Moeblob tends to suppress any other physical traits, so you can’t really say how much endowed the character is. But when it comes to pettan, there are three obvious candidates, Kobayakawa Yutaka, Iwasaki Minami, and Kogami Akira.

Kobayakawa Yutaka

This actually lets me do two characters at one time, because Kobayakawa Yutaka – pink hair (小早川 ゆたか) and Iwasaki Minami – green hair (岩崎 みなみ) are very close friends. The former is Konata’s cousin. After being admitted into Ryouou High School, she moved and has been living with Konata and her father. She is said to be of frail health, but still she is very cheerful. At her new school, she makes friends with Minami.

Kobayakawa Yutaka

Minami is a girl from a rich family, and her house is across the street from the house where Miyuki lives. Minami keeps a big white dog named Cherry at home. Besides her pet, she likes books, and playing piano. She never speaks much, so it might seem that her personality is quite cold, but that’s not true.

Iwasaki Minami

Minami is quite tall when compared with other girls, but she is flat. And unlike Konata, for example, she is ashamed of it. But Konata always says, actually quotes the line from Shuffle that “Flat chest is a status symbol. Very rare and valuable.”

Minami and Yutaka first met at the entrance exams. Yutaka didn’t feel well and Yutaka helped her go to the nurse office. Both of them are accepted and even get into the same class.

One of their classmates is a doujin artist and she often imagines them as a yuri pair.

Kogami Akira

The last one of today’s batch is nobody else than the boss of Lucky Channel, Kogami Akira (小神 あきら) herself. One of her physical characteristics is her ahoge (that hair antennae thing). She is very energetic and very cute. But that all is just a farce and she is short-tempered and easily turns into melancholic mode. Her childish voice instantly changes to a deep, annoyed voice and it’s not unusual that she resorts to violence. Particularly, when it comes to her assistant, Shiraishi Minoru. Every time he mentions that some other girl is nice or cute, Akira takes on that irked, rude form.

Kogami Akira

She is a moeblob and that’s the reason why she can be an idol. And when it comes to playing, her abilities are truly amazing.

Kogami Akira

She is the main character in manga serialised in Comp Ace, called “Akira Ambition”.
