THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Dat darkened sky. Yup, it's raining outside. Little Haruka is so cute :p

I'm not sure how well this was adapted but there was a crying Kanata and an embracing Haruka. I think those hair pins ties them together according to their flashback. Also kinda nice to see their father spill the beans a little.

Lol, the ending was cute. The group holding hands and the twins dressed up in a brief scene. Cute :3

I'll say that for the anime's standards. it was a pretty good episode.

but the rain scene sucked asshole. For those wondering why we were anticipating the rain scene, it's because in the visual novel haruka originally had a pair of scissors and tried to kill kanata. (the screams were heart wrenching..)

saigusa shou's character development was noticeably rushed.

although it was quite enjoyable and even got a few tears out of me. My favorite route in the VN was Mio's and it still sticks true to the anime. Kud's getting 4 episodes though so lets see if things changed.

5/5 just because of Riki's statement "There is no God in this place, we are the only ones within this world"

EDIT : i forgot to mention. THEY BROUGHT BACK THE OUTFIT OF DOOM

That was awesome! I teared up the most I have from the anime adaptation when Kanata started crying. They really tied everything up perfectly at the end and still kept all the major plot points in!! I don't see how anyone would be able to say this adaptation of Haruka's route was bad. It's probably one of the best routes so far!

Watching the whole episode straight made me feel that it was really rushed, but after watching the episode again scene-by-scene, the episode was actually okay.
The thing that I didn't like is that there was no BGM during the rain scene (was not intense enough either -- the screaming and shouting before the scissor thing already was really heart-wrenching in the VN, while the voice actor did not do as well in the anime), while the hair-accessory giving scene was too short (that scene hit me hard in the VN and I cried as much in the Sasami arc).

This was my favorite arc's conclusion episode, also this was the first time I'm actually almost crying watching a LB's episode. When Kanata starting crying was T_________T

That scene took me off guard.

Damn, poor girl D:

My favorite arc to the moment, I'm looking forward to the next!!

5/5

For some reason, it feels like they're making the actors suppress the screaming.... I don't know why. Overall, nice episode though.

yea.. they should have let them go all out like the original but part of me feels like the resolution/forgiving scene would feel forced if we had the drama level of the vn.

also, any ideas why Mio didn't answer her phone? i can't find the reason why they would add that bit

Only in summer Argentina and Paraguay have the same hours (UTC -3). In Paraguay it premieres before?

And I think I could answer You in Spanish ;D.

theres gotta be a reason for not including Mio, especially with the way that they added that part where riki cant reach her through the phone.

she's in the preview for the next episode... I NEED TO KNOW THE SIGNIFICANCE!

Isn't that a bit cruel to thrown a child like that?

Anyway I can't believe I was actually crying in this episode.
Awesome episode xD

Oh my.
That quality, awesome awesome awesome awesome episode.
Even though they cut some things out in this arc, I thought it was adapted well, and they elaborated more on the issue between the parents and wrapped it up so beautifully.

They sure don't disappoint with the route endings.

5/5

I put all my shows on RSS Feed, so that when UTW releases it, the show gets downloaded onto uTorrent right away. :>. Same goes for all my other shows.

Okay, that was unexpectedly great. What the anime achieved is something that the visual novel could not, it made me forgive Kanata at the end. What the adaption lost with Haruka's character, they more than made up for her sister and I really like this.

Final opinion for Haruka's arc: Anime > Visual Novel. Nicely done J.C. Staff!

First to vote 4/5 instead of 5/5 (sorry?).

Pretty good episode, probably the best so far imo. I'm not a VN reader, but the idea of Haruka trying to kill her sister with scissors seems a bit...overboard. Although I was expecting at least, like, a good blow to the face instead of some light taps.

That was a really great conclusion to Haruka's arc and I love how both sisters made up after this. Eventually, Haruka would rather not find out who her real father is. It was truly a heartwarming end and watching their family together again brought a tear to my eye. :')

5/5

Lucia still best route, but I have to say Kud's bad end was like the worst bad end ever. Next to Haruka's bad end. But it was so well written that I wanted it to be the good end.

Can you screenshot your setup for the RSS feed for Little Busters?


Step: 1


Find out which account on nyaa is posting said torrent.
-For example Little Busters is being posted by Ulrezaj.
-Click on his account name and you'll see other shows, etc there
-Once there right click "RSS," then click "Copy Link Location"

Step: 2


Make a feed like I do on the side
-Right click feeds, add RSS feed.
-put the Link you obtained from the First steps into the "Feed URL"
-Name the custom Alias if you want to remember what show, or group it is.
-"Do not automatically download all items" [Checked]

Step: 3


-Click options then click RSS Downloader.
-Click "Add" at the bottom left to make your feed section, name it w/e "Little Busters," "Mazui," "Utw"
w/e makes you remember
-After you did that click on the feed, and make sure it is highlighted.

Filter: Put in *Little Busters* or for short *Busters*. If you wanted another show from the same person posting in that group put *Busters*|*Fate*. The *|* is needed between like what I did to separate the names.
Save in: Self explanatory
Not: Put what you don't want. Note putting in show names is not needed as Filters makes you download the shows u want only. Put in *Xvid*|*480p*|*1080p* Depending what you don't want.
Feed: Click the feed that you added back in step 2.

Edit: One final thing.
-Click Options, then Preferences.
-Click advanced and find "rss.update_interval." Once you found it change the "Value" to "5" so that it updates every 5 minutes, which is the lowest time to update.

I probably would too if I was a Haruka fan, but this arc would probably be a downer for those who liked it. Main thing I loved about the anime version is how much I see Kanata in a different light compared to the VN. I actually really like her now.

I just have to make it not download old episodes.
Hmm. It seems that if I hit update feed, it'll try to download all the stuff including the old episode, but if I remove it then update again, it won't try to grab old episodes, so I think it should work fine next week.

I think I got it now ;>

Yes it downloaded all episodes because it never recognized it in the feed before. You can jsut cancel all those previous ones and it should work fine next week.
