and so without further ado, I shall cut to the tributes for THE Shiraishi Minoru whose appallingly lame EDs have only served to increased my Lucky Star fanaticism.(no, really i was watching Lucky Star partly to see how lame could he get next week)
Firstly credit is certainly due to Minoru for having his own rendition of Koi Mikuru no Densetsu as his ringtone. (This certainly certifies him as an otaku) Minoru has also managed to build up a loyal fanbase during the span of Lucky Channel as the Devil's(Akira, we're looking at you) assistant.
Anyone, IMO deserves my everlasting respect for putting up with soooo much crap being hurled at him. In this aspect he certainly showed true grit that i am sure Kamina would have been proud of.
His crowning glory came near the end of the Lucky Star season where he released all of his righteous anger on the Devil(yes, thats you again Akira) and brought her to her knees. All fear the righteous might of the oppressed for when it is released, it is more powerful than any force known to man.(so, if you have oppressed anyone lately, you had better apologize and make amends or you would have booked a place for yourself on a Nice Boat)FIGHT THE POWER !!!So, for being the symbol of the oppressed assistants everywhere and taking the fight to the powers that be, we salute you, Shiraishi Minoru as a comrade in arms.
