10 Easter Eggs You Never Noticed in Lucky Star

Happy Easter! An Easter egg is an intentional inside joke, hidden message, or feature in an interactive work such as a TV show, video game or  movie. The name is used to evoke the idea of a traditional Easter egg hunt. The anime Lucky Star makes multiple references to other anime and manga. See the list below to find out which Easter eggs you probably missed in this anime.

When Konata talks about Kagami and her sisters in episode 17, she alludes to the idea that the Hiiragi sisters have a hidden personality and are probably thieves like the Kisugi sisters in Cat’s Eye.
