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.

It won't fit. :X

Plus, if you watched the trailer, there are no signs of including Kanata's and Sasami's in the current series.

Not an entirely unwarranted comparison, but Little Busters! is doing better than Total Eclipse was at an equivalent point.

LB! has been up for 590 hourly updates on Stalker, and has averaged #73 in that time, with a max ranking of #165 and min of #6.
TE at the same point has averaged #94, with a max ranking of #316 and min of #3.

A good 21 spots higher in average rank, during a busier season, is probably significant, plus TE fell faster and harder. But again, it's a somewhat reasonable comparison to make (huge initial ranking followed by steady decline even weeks into the anime's broadcast), if perhaps premature in the specifics.

That aside, I don't understand how correcting the misunderstandings of a large number of viewers is "cheap bait". I'm appreciative that they corrected people who jumped to conclusions about the length.

I just being a dick.

But I think they want get fan response too. I wonder if there's no change in the plan if the sales not too hot.

Btw question for the fan, so the best moment/exciting moment not gonna appear in these 2 cour of episode or what? Thing only became good in "2nd season material" or something like that?

I want to watch this but bored as hell with first 2 episode, and I damn sure don't want to wait until 2nd season to see if its became "worth it".

This makes me incredibly happy. :)
Though I've only played the original little busters, I know about Saya and the additional Sasami and Katana routes and what happends in them (looking up the images and stories, lol) I'm happy that they will cover Little busters in its entirety ^_^.

I hope people that haven't played the VN will stick around long enough to see how amazing this series really is.

Just like many KEY works, the common route of LB is purely SoL moments and moves pretty slow, however its purpose it to let you get familiar with the characters and show you the relationships between them. The individual character arcs are of course more dramatic and serious but like you have heard the true highlight and what makes LB as a whole a very good is the revelation of the secret of the world and the events after it (just like After Story brings the heaviest drama in Clannad). Refrain is basically where everything gets tied together and makes the experience worth it and imo puts this title about Clannad.

"Good things come to those who wait" is a good way to go about when watching LB. If you want to keep watching I guess it will depend on how much you can enjoy the individual character arcs in this first season.

This is awesome! The more the better, especially for an anime like Little Busters. I'm dreading the flood of ignorant people commenting about how LB is garbage and how it shouldn't have anymore episodes. Little Busters is a magnificent gem and people shouldn't throw it off so early.

If you mean by "best moment" is like from Clannad After Story(Though you haven't watch Clannad/AS), then yes. But on this 2 cour series, we will see the drama of each heroine.

They obviously thought of it before the series since Saya, who only appears after Refrain, is in the original trailer.

I think you quoted a wrong person. :P


But then again, since they're talking about episodes, I don't think it'll be a Movie or OVA.

It applies to both, since the second person was agreeing with the first.

Could still be an OVA if talking in "episodes". But TV series is most likely.

Indeed but I'm also thinking that TV series is most likely than OVA.

They better not troll us; but obviously they won't because they can make a lot of money from Refrain.

Anyway this is GREAT news to hear. So far I love LB; loved Clannad as well so I have faith in Key that LB will be awesome! And of course more LB is even more awesome.

By that and the overall positive reactions in here I'd make the guess that it's just me thinking the pacing of Little Busters! is incredibely slow..
I have it already on hold because of that.. it's not that I dislike it but the pace feels so painfully slow. Some jokes and basically nothing else is happening (I spoilered myself btw and roughly know what's to come).. Okay, we're just a couple of episodes in but this is a rather common "problem" with an anime that has >20 episodes. :x
And now news about even more? Meh.

About the news saying there will be more means they will adapt the additional heroines and an another story that's somehow similar to Clannad's After Story. LB is really long if you ask me because of the number of heroines and the length of their stories.

I'm so happy Refrain is most likely getting it's own season. I was a bit nervous about the limit of 26 episodes, but now I have complete faith that this is going to be a great adaption.

I'm hoping they make a movie animated by Kyoto Animation. So far, 100% of their movies have been masterful. Plus, they're the undisputed kings of VN adaptations. Although JC staff are very close.

Can't tell if that's a VN or not, but it failed in terms of attracting people to it.

Wonder how many episodes it will have in total if 26 episodes isn't enough probably around 50~60?

Well at least I something to fill my Key void since AB! ended for quite a while.
