Update Apr 2nd
Mangaka Zen, the author of Little Busters! Ecstacy complained that she had been preparing for the April Fool's joke of "Little Nya-sters" anime but Dengeki's premature leak spoiled her effort.

Zen's joke illustration of "Little Nya-sters" anime It says "The mission will start this autumn."

She said, "Yeah you're right. They leaked the information! I sacrificed myself to prepare the joke but our plan was completely ruined. It's so funny huh? You can ridicule me! Hahaha! (sob)"

Updated on April 3rd
The President of Visual Arts announced on his twitter account that the cast of Little Busters anime hasn't been fixed yet but the anime will be aired not so far in the future. He didn't reveal the production studio but he said the producers have been under tremendous pressure since they are aware of the high expectation of the fans. He said the quality of the trailer was not high because Visual Arts themselves made the animation using image sequences sent from the production studio.

I can't wait to see two things, first animated Kud speaking engrish to make me go HNNG, and second Masato talking about his muscles which will also make me go HNNG.

GOD, I wasn't so excited since long time ago!


So, according to trailer, they will do Ecstacy stories too... Looking forward to it, since I haven't played it yet. But they better don't make Saya main heroine! Rin is only one who deserves it.

Is is really.. did they go for PA Works again? PA for the mainstream, I approve. Although Hanasaku and AB already did that, I'm pleased.

Also, Waffle-chan!

It looks like P.A Works animating it.

It's far too on-model to be A-1 and doesn't have the post-K-ON! style of KyoAni.

They do look similar to A-1, and I would have no problem with them (though KyoAni obviously would have been preferable) since I am a fan of A-1.

Yeah looks like P.A Works style of art.

And I hope they choose another voice actor for Riki otherwise when him and Rin start talking... lol.

The quality for KyoAni looks a little off [bgs] ... I think it's PA Works?

Plausible, but it was leaked a week ago, so it would have to have been a huge troll-effort.

The one thing that makes me think its not PA Works is that it doesn't have the "Glossy" art style that quite a few of their recent anime have had.

Uhm yeah if you have played enough of the game you will know that is "Mask the Saito" from the game. If he is incorporated as well I am thinking more and more that this will be given the series length it deserves. I will be more upset if this is only given 13 episodes where it is clearly worth "AT LEAST" 26 + at least 13 for Refrain after that.

It seems like April Fools to me -____-
But, if not, then I think the animation studio might be either A-1 pictures or something. Cause, P.A. Works animation is a lot different than this (EX: Angel Beats). In the end I hope its not an April Fools Joke.

Waiting for this for so much time. This will be amazing.

This had better not be a April Fools thing (ahead of time...).

It looks a little off compared to other KyoAni stuff so I'm doubting it's done by them.

I hope whoever is doing it can do a decent job with it. My guess is PA Works since the characters have that typical PA Works shine to them.
Ok™

haha guys look at this animation work for rewrite from key

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yegE5ai9abQ

... no Rewrite doesn't have an anime haha... but it's pretty convincing... I hate to be a pessimist but it seems that key itself is capable of short clips like these...

haha and it would be weird for an anime to have a questionable production company...or something.....

ahahah anyways 'enjoy the news!' :D

The animation of Rewrite was done by White Fox, IIRC. Not Key.
