Kawase Kohei, the producer of Warner Entertainment Japan, revealed on a web radio program that there will be an announcement at the end of the final episode of Little Busters!. He said, "We know it's impossible to cover the whole story with the current pace. We have promised to animate the entire scenario of the game. I cannot make it clear here but you know what I mean, right? If you watch the 26th episode, there will be a message that you want. Please don't be suspicious. The arcs of your favorite characters will surely be animated. We know 26 episodes is too short."

Shouldn't they have thought of this before they animated the series?

Now I feel a lot better. There's been rumours that it'll only be 26 eps due to the current pacing... (3 eps per route? and cramming Refrain onto the end) but I really thought that they couldn't possibly fit all the routes and Refrain in the first 26 eps.

Now a continuation could be a string of OVAs... a movie(s), 1/2 cour season. I guess we have to wait until ep26 then.

Bring on Little Busters! Refrain.

Though this was expected, what with the "significantly long" comment and all.

I also posted a topic in the Little Busters discussion board at about the same time.
http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=511561

The following is what I wrote:



========================



Responding to the host's question that many fans wonder how Little Busters can be covered at the current pace of animation, Kawase admitted that at the current pace the various stories in Little Busters can never be covered. But he said he would use the occasion to declare, for the first ever time in public, that they are going to cover the WHOLE Little Busters and he stressed that he is a fan of the VN and he loves every part of Little Busters. However he could not disclose more information now but he urged fans not to worry too much: they will understand if they keep following the anime -- at the very end they will find the answer they want. He also assured that they would cover the route of the girl you like - everyone will be covered which means 26 episodes will definitely not going to be all.

Source http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/26560334



Fans in Japan now wonder what exactly this means. The most popular view is that this means the current covers just before Refrain. And there will be a 2nd season for Refrain ( 1 cour? 2 cour?). And then perhaps it will be a movie. Also from what he said, there should be high possibility that Saya's route will be animated.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

I think they planned this all along, though. Maybe they had already decided to make it split-cour (or whatever) back then and decided to let people know now than wait half a year and leave everyone in suspense.

Nah. It's just they will adapt more heroines' stories based from the game.

I also wonder what will be the message on the 26th episode. ._.

Maybe this is one of the good news I've heard in my entire life.

Uh, I'm sure they did. They never told us anything to the contrary. All we ever heard was that it would be "significantly long" and that the current season was two cour. That by no means there would never be more. KyoAni never felt the need to state ahead of time that Clannad would run for four cour, after all.

I think the only reason he's saying this now is because people insisted on assuming that it will only be 26 episodes, ever, when nobody from the production committee ever said any such thing.

At least it's one less thing for people to bitch about.

He's probably referring to ovas animating the extra 3 arcs in ecstacy. In all seriousness, 3 to 4 episodes per character arc and the remainder for refrain is enough to pull it off. People forget how incredibly repetitive refrain actually is. Kanon used 10 whole episodes for the intro and Makoto arc but still managed to cover 4 arcs in 24 episodes.

Either as OVAs or another series namely "Little Busters Ecstasy". As if you don't know, Saya's story can't fit in just 1 OVA.

Saya's arc is also incredibly repetitive. I'm sure it could be done. Just look at the Clannad Kyou/Tomoyo OVAs.

Kyou's isn't really well-adapted. Her OVA is rushed as hell.

A well-adapted story of Saya's can fit at least 3-4 episodes. Even it's incredibly repetitive. Even Kanata's story is also long.

Really good news :D...I can't wait to see LB at its full potential. It seems that it won't be impossible with how much the producer seems to be caring about the series.

As I was saying in the other topic, after it was confirmed they were going 3 episodes per route, there was absolutely no way they'd be able to fit it in 26 episodes. Glad to see they won't be trying to rush it.

2nd series called Little Busters: Refrain most likely, similar to how Clannad had its After Story. At the pace they're going, I projected other day they'd need about 38-42 episodes.

I'm guessing Refrain will be another 26 episodes.

Saya's route could be 10 episodes alone, and then Rin2 and Refrain would take up the rest.

You also forgot that they will also adapt Kanata's and Sasami's.

Their routes could potentially be animated in the current series.
