Konata's Magically Short Hair (コナタの魔法の短い髪 Konata no Mahō no Mijikai Kami) is an episode of Magical Girl Team Lucky Star. It is the third episode of the second season of the series, and the 55th overall.


Act One

The episode starts off with Konata looking at herself in a mirror, and asks Soujirou to take her to the barber's to cut her hair short. After Konata's haircut, she takes a picture of herself and posts it on Fegelbook, when controversy triggers around Ryou Gakuen and Minecraftia High School, saying that "Konata cut her hair short". As time flies by, Konata's magic makes her hair grow back half an inch each day. That Monday following her haircut, her hair grows back to her lower body, and Kagami thinks that "she will grow her hair down to her ankles". As more time flies by, Konata's hair eventually grows back to her calves. Konata asks Soujirou to take her back to the barber's, but he could not because he couldn't afford another short trim. Despite not being able to do so, Konata thinks of another way to cut her hair short. Then Konata ties her hair in a tight bun, unlike putting her hair in front when she sleeps.

Act Two

The next day at school, the Hiiragi twins and Miyuki find out that Konata cut her hair again, but actually did not. They noticed she tied her hair in a bun, to which she posted a photo on Fegelbook two days prior. But due to Konata's Hair Regrowth ability, the bun gets larger over time, which results in Konata having to retie the bun each time. Then one day, Konata's hair grew so long, that the band that holds her bun snaps, resulting in a huge resemblance to Kanata, except her ahoge. One day at the Lucky Star Kingdom, many of Konata's friends, including her two maids, congratulated for growing her hair "down past her feet".

Lucky Channel
