    Default Little Busters!


    It's a bit early but I figure why not get a thread going for the upcoming anime Little Busters! Set to air Saturday October 6th Little Busters! is the newest adaptation of one of Key's visual novels. It's being animated by J.C. Staff (Azumanga Daioh, Bakuman, Shakugan no Shana, Slayers) and directed by Yoshiki Yamakawa (... Kill Me Baby).

    Who's excited? Post what you think about it here.

    I'm really excited for it. Everyday I get more and more pumped waiting. I have NO idea what it's about since I haven't read the summary about it but that's because summaries don't tell me anything I want or need to know.

    Whoo. Congrats, Champ. *slow clap*

    I said it once somewhere before, and I'll say it again. I'm taking Jolteon's claims into consideration along with a grain of salt, so while I am going to watch this, I'm waiting until every single episode is out. A series like this (especially one from Key), I feel, needs to be watched fully and close together as much as possible for a fuller effect. If it takes a couple of years to be completed, I'm willing to wait, so it'll be on my list.

    Sure, I could look up the visual novel and not have to wait, but I don't want to risk being let down. (It's what I did with CLANNAD and Higurashi--watched the anime first then went for the original material.)

    Hau-au-au?! I didn't say anything bad about Little Busters! I was just saying I'm waiting for all the episodes to be out before I see it! I also said I won't look up the visual novel until after I watch the anime in case the anime disappoints me in some way! Can't blame me for being cautious!

    Hauuu... I can hardly tell through text what's sarcasm and what's not... *thumb twiddle*

    I have a ridiculous amount of free time a lot, so I figure that once all the episodes are out, I would have a marathon like I did with CLANNAD. And if it's just as tear-jerking as CLANNAD, the tears will flow much more easily than a week-by-week. I don't have the sharpest of memories, after all.

    Speaking of, since you're taking the longer route, make sure you try to stay away from spoilers.

    By the way, spoilers in spoiler tags guys. Just in case.

    Geez, slow down there. Can we really talk about Little Busters! for over a week before it airs? Oh wait...

    Speaking of Jolteon91, the main reasons that I'm planning to watch this is that 1) the two adaptations (three series) of visual novels by Key that I've seen so far have ranged from pretty good to freaking incredible, and 2) Jolteon91 has been hyping Little Busters! up since before the anime adaptation even got announced. I don't actually know much about it beyond there being friendship and romance.

    But, you know, a well executed story with friendship and romance as its main elements is something that really appeals to me. It has to be done really well, but J.C. Staff have pulled it off before (Toradora!), so I'm pretty optimistic.

    100% of information in signatures on this forum involving percentages is false. If you feel as cheated by this atrocity as I do, don't you dare copy this into your signature.
    Hold on... if this percentage was correct at the time of print, that means the actual percentage of false information is less than 100% if this signature is included. Which means that... no! I've become a slave to the system!!

    I speedrun DS Pokémon games. Currently, I speedrun Pokémon White 2, and I've also ran Pokémon Pearl in the past.

    I'm of course going to be watching it as it airs. Then probably again after if it's as good as I hope.

    I heard the Visual Novel for this was very good so I'm really looking forward to this. Oh and the art is brilliant.



    Other than that I'm just watching it for the heck of it. No I'm joking I just want to fit in with the veterans

    In my defence I gave you a nice warning.

    That won't spoil much though since you don't know the reason why.

    That's also why an omni bus would actually work here, just without the complete reset.

    I clicked this spoiler after Jolteon said it's not that big of a spoiler due to not knowing why.

    And of course, I shouldn't be too surprised. Key seems to have a thing about stories involving some fantasy/supernatural from what its TV Tropes page says. So I'm not going to be bothered knowing about that. That might make the story much more interesting for me. Who knows.

    Yet another PV, I'm beginning to think J.C. Staff have spent all their time making PVs and have forgotten about the series itself.

    I wouldn't say that. Everything in the promotion videos are either from the opening sequence, or an episode. It'd be a d*ck move to have lied to everyone about the show through false PVs.

    It was a joke, the first two PVs were pretty much recreations of the VN OP, while most of the stuff shown in the newest one while likely take place in the first episode.

    EDIT: So according to people who were at the preview screening (bloody Japan gets all the nice things) it was a good first episode.

    First episode was awesome, extremely faithful to the VN so far, keeps the VN's OST (which is ****ing amazing), early signs pointing towards a very good adaptation.

    OP and ED are great too.

    Little Busters! (OP)
    Alicemagic (ED)

    EDIT:

    Subs are out.
