Not-So-Daily Link of the Day II: Minoru Shiraishi, the voice actor of the character by the same name in Lucky Star, will be launching a spinoff series of live-action TV shorts called Lucky Racer on April 2. Shiraishi will compete in cart-racing with the staff and voice cast of the anime, and the winners can then debut products or publicize themselves.
Lucky Racer will run within the Seitokai no Ichizon anime's timeslot when the BS11 broadcast satellite channel runs that anime on Fridays at midnight. The Kadokawa Anime Channel will then start streaming each Lucky Racer episode on Saturday, April 3.
Bandai Entertainment has been releasing both the Lucky Star anime and the original four-panel manga by Kagami Yoshimizu in North America.
