Lucky Star cast appears in Kannagi and whoa…idea time!

Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens ranks up there as one of the best anime shows this season, alongside my other favorite, ToraDora!  Kannagi is attracting a lot of attention lately, although mostly because of all the uproar in the news about the manga-ka unexpectedly going on indefinite hiatus and "other" reasons (see: otaku upset over virginity issue).  Still though, the show is genuinely funny and creative.

One thing that's really impressive about the show are all the cameo appearances.  Take for example the latest episode in which the cast decides to go sing karaoke: it begins with the camera standing motionless outside a closed door, and voices can be heard from the other side.  The door itself is a familiar brown, with plain-colored walls.  Familiar fans will recognize these details as a parody of the memorable ending sequence of another show featuring four high school girls.  Later down the line, you get to see the meeting between the two, leading to head asplosions in households everywhere.

Fan reactions were pretty favorable; who would have known these two shows had anything in common?  It's pretty uncommon for shows that (at first glance) don't have anything in common to share the spotlight.  But then again, parodies have been on the rise in all kinds of circles, from gaming to television to comic books.

Why aren't there more of them?


An idea sparked in my mind (feel free to credit it to me later) as I started to grasp this new concept.  What if…there were two shows…that appeared to have nothing in common at the outset?  What if the actions in one show started cropping up and indirectly affecting the other?  Still following me? 

And what if near, oh…let's say…the climax of the show, they both merge and become a single entity, culminating in a new kind of show that started out as two different shows, but in the end provided an experience the user sees from two different viewpoints?  Would it be interesting at all?  Would you want to watch it? 

I would want to watch it, for sure.  Perhaps I'll cling on to this idea for later down the road…
