Note: I'm going to make references about the original work, the visual novel Little Busters and its ex version, Little Busters Ecstasy (Although I haven´t played the ex version yet)

Little Busters is considered one of the most influential visual novels from Key studio whose works like Clannad, Air or Kanon have had a good success on the market. Due to the good reception and results of the sales, Little Busters got an addition with a new heroine and two new stories about two of the supporting characters from the original visual novel which got an anime adaptation several months ago.

Already seen the two season of Little Busters!. This is also my first review for a series (OVA).

Story: At the moment only Saya's route has been shown but seem she was missing something from her childhood that was ripped from her. But overall the story based off a visual novel was very well played by J.C.Staff and Visual Art's Key brand. Score: 10/10

Sound: The music of this season is little meh but as usual Rita sings the opening theme. Saya's song has a strong emotional feeling toward who is listening but that my opinion since everyone has different taste in music for animination. Score: read more

Both anime start off seemingly as a slice of life, but actually are both situated in worlds that have more to it than meets the eye, with antagonists in the shadows aiming for the main character's life.

Both anime have the main character grabbing a baseball bat to defend himself when he feels threatened by something observing him from a distance. Both main characters have cute girls attempting to kill them constantly for a deeper reason than just mindless violence.

Both shows revolve around the theme of friendship and youth, with a mystery element.

"Little Busters! EX" By Rita

#3: "Alicemagic -Rockstar Ver.-" by Rita (ep 6)
#4: "Alicemagic -TV Animation Ver.-" by Rita (ep 8)
