Following an accident where Masato Inohara batted a baseball into the school's water main, the boys' dormitory is partially crippled. Until a plumber repairs the damage, the boys have to stay in the girls' dormitory. To determine which rooms they'll be assigned to, they draw tickets from a hat. Unfortunately, due to the limited capacity, some of the boys will have to go without a bed.

Once Riki Naoe draws his ticket, he gets one that forces him to stay in one of the less-than-cozy clubrooms. Seeing his hapless predicament, a nervous Kudryavka "Kud" Noumi musters enough courage to confront her feelings while asking Riki to sleep in her room instead. Despite the rest of the Little Busters incessantly teasing Kud and Riki about their relationship, he stays with her throughout the summer. As they share unforgettable experiences one after another, the two realize that they might want to be more than just friends.

Kud Wafter is an adaptation of Key's visual novel of the same name. After a crowdfunding campaign for its production was launched on July 18, 2017 by VisualArts, its goal of thirty million yen was reached in three days; by September 25, 2017, it reached its final stretch goal of sixty million yen.

While originally set to premiere in September 2019, a change in directors resulted in a one-year delay to September 2020. A second delay pushed the premiere date to November 2020 following concerns regarding the film's quality. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, another delay was issued, moving the film's theatrical screenings from May 14, 2021 to July 16, 2021.

I haven't seen Little Busters, but I couldn't care less. And this review has spoilers.

In the beginning they make a melodrama for Wafu (I don't care what her name is, go with Wafu anyway) only for her to say that she wanted to spend more time with Riki. What is the point of this? It had no narrative function that it is really necessary to use drama. This part was right after the beginning, when the boys have to stay in empty rooms in the girls' dorm because their room was flooded with water.

There is one part that was so stupid, I started laughing. ...

This is a short story that follows Kud being in relationship with Riki, with main events being focused on her dreams and her past.

As a fan of Little Buster (VN), I couldn't help but enjoy the characters, being reminded of the everyday life with friends just playing around. And the music that just reminds me of the VN moments.

Addition, non-anime related but necessary to understand my score:
Due to the low score of the Anime (not even 7 when I wrote), I can tell that most people have not read the Visual Novel (get it on st*em as its outstanding, it has everything except +18 ...

Despite being a spin-off to one of my favorite pieces of fiction ever, Little Busters!, I didn’t have high expectations coming into Kud Wafter. VN into anime adaptations are always scary, even more so when they’re getting adapted as movies. More so, Kud Wafter was never thought of as quality work in the first place, and Studio Key in general doesn’t have a good record when it comes to spin-offs. I'm looking at you, Tomoyo After.

Surprisingly enough however, the final product we got here turned out to be much better than I ever would’ve expected. The movie starts out in a very lighthearted manner, aiming ...
