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.

~Spoiler Free~

An anime adaptation of the new route additions in key's visual novel - Little Busters!: Ecstasy, Little Busters!: EX is a good summary of the arcs in the visual novel, however it cannot be compared to the masterpiece of which the VN is. That being said, covering three entire arcs over only 8 episodes of such an amazing visual novel cannot realistically be of the same standard as the visual novel. However, the eight episodes are indeed still of very high quality.

The expectations I had for this anime, were naturally very high given that I had just watched Little Busters!: Refrain, now one read more

- Yuri Nakamura aka Yurippe (Angel Beats!) and Aya aka Saya Tokido (Little Busters! EX) have a same role. They are leading the team to finish the mission. In Angel Beats, Yurippe wants to beat Tenshi (Angel). In Little Busters EX, Saya wants to beat the leader of Darkness Executive.

- Both of them also have the same costume. They wear school uniform and mastered to use pistol gun.

- Yurippe and Saya Tokido have the same voice actress.

- Angel Beats! and Little Busters! EX have the same creator.
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.
