I hadn't listened to the Lucky Star character album until now. Kagami's and Tsukasa's tracks ("100% nai nai nai" and "Ne Tou ge de Reset") are quite heart-rending, and recasts some of their interactions with the others in a new light.

Never watched it but that's interesting. Tell me about them.

Kagami plays the role of the tsukkomi to Konata's "comedic" antics. We unfortunately don't get to see too much of Kagami outside of her interactions with Konata and her being the older sister of Tsukasa, and her characterization is essentially limited to the above.

In the show Kagami is in a different class from the rest of the cast (Konata et al.), and since fifth grade or so has always instead been put into the same class as Misao Kusakabe, and Ayano Minegishi, two side characters. At first this just seems to be a running gag, resulting in jokes about how she visits and is more familiar with the students from Konata's class than her own, how Miso and Ayano are relegated to side characters when Kagami would hang out with Konata's class, and so on.

But if you listen to "100% nai nai nai" you can see the loneliness Kagami feels. Moreover we also get the impression that even though for now she does get to see her friends after school and such, she knows that in the future if she were to be ever separated from them (e.g. college) she'd be stuck in complete loneliness. See in particular the following sections

>100% satisfaction
>Doesn't exist, does it? It doesn't, but, I had wished it did
>It passes me by every year
>It's gotta be just coincidence
>We never run out of things to say
>But, sometimes, I get lonely, I feel like an idiot

>Now, now, now
>I wonder if I can be happy the way things are going now?
>For now, for now, for now
>I'll manage somehow
>I can't see the goal, but that's the best way

>When you're even 10% lonely
>From that point to this one, it's all good if you just laugh
>Repeating, every week
>Tonight, of course
>Our phone conversation will be long
>I keep my cell phone charged, so anytime is okay

It also lends more context to the last episode in the show, where Kagami helps choreograph a dance of the OP (Sailor Fuku). If I recall in the show Kagami was initially opposed to the idea of doing a class dance, but when everyone else is on-board she begrudgingly decides to go along with it and mutters that she "doesn't want to be the only one left out of the memory." In the context of the above, that utterance takes on a much more emotional and nuanced tone.

That is a very sad perspective. I can't stop thinking about it now.
