Another great episode!
The adaption is getting better and better. Friendship is getting more important ever week. Hurray for Komarin!
I'm glad that Mio got to show off her skills.
Also, wise move to make even more Refrain foreshadowing. Time for those Idiots who think LB is just about a bunch of children doing nothing to eat dirt.

More of Komari - my fav character and her moments with Rin. Nice to see that they plan to elaborate more about their relations.

Too bad that Mio didn't went into her yaoi Kyouske x Riki fanfics ;) but it was great either way.
It was weird that no one noticed that HUGE cat during show :P but well whatever.

And I liked this foreshadowing towards Refrain

One arc doesn't make an entire story, or in this case show, good...it makes that one arc good. Bits and pieces of foreshadowing related to the climax doesn't make all the other nonsense any more palatable.

I'll admit that this episode was good bc the viewer can feel the enveloped mystery and "Key magic". The following episodes will probably be good as well. I'll say again, Refrain doesn't make 20+ episodes of "children doing nothing" (which that air time completely overshadows the fragmented bits of mystery) good. The focus is lost far too often and easily. Even if you are aware of the climax.

Started reading the VN recently. I haven't got to Refrain yet, but God did the last few minutes of this episode scare the living crap out of me.

Seriously. This adaptation has a lower rating than Umineko; that's pushing it way too far.

Fascinating episode. I gasped when I saw the eight dwarfs, even though I don't know what they mean. I almost cried when I saw how much work Komari did for Rin, and my heart stopped with Komari's "disappearance."

You know, it was LB! the anime that got me more interested in Key. I'm going to put the VN on hold until the whole anime is over. Now I'm starting Rewrite, and boy, it's hilarious.

That may be so, but this is more of a SOF show than anything, which gives foreshadowing and a unified story more value. You don't usually see, well, a culminating plot in SOF shows. It's a fascinating structure, but I'll reserve thinking critically about it until the whole anime is over.

I'm sure most VN players had the chills from that rooftop scene. Refrain is near, guys!

DAMNIT, I almost got a heart attack! Good one ;) Episode was decent, though I was quite surprised they made whole episode of it. Best part was obviously Komari's kamehameha :D And Mio doing voices. It should have last longer, though. I really like how Rin-chan's and Komari's frienship is showed in the anime. Can't wait the RIGHT rooftop scene, it'll definitely be something.

And next episode... HERE IT COMES! I've been awaiting this since the anime started airing. Kengo finally gets awesome :D

I actually think that the anime did a good job incorporating the puppet show into the story. Almost had a heart attack with the rooftop scene. Only problem was how they kept cutting off "Ring Ring Ring"...that's one of my favorite songs in the series!

>Implying the rating of less than half an adaptation is any representation of the actual series.
Idk, the common route execution could be (much) better, but Refrain is the meat of Little Busters.
I couldn't give the Little Busters VN more than a 7.5 overall if I only read the common route and 4 character routes, and had little knowledge of the Secret of the World. It just doesn't reach too much of a purpose in the first season alone.

There are still ~20,000 people watching it according to myanimelist, despite those who have dropped it, and a lot of people haven't put in their ratings, so it's likely to change a bit after the season's over.

But yeah, it's too early to speak about it. I'm just glad there are apparently a lot of people following it, and hopefully more will come join us for the bus ride next season.

I just noticed that there are eight dwarfs and two people in the picture when there are only nine members of the Little Busters. My head is so confused.

No, there's ten of em. Kengo is a member despite the fact that he doesn't play baseball with them if that's what's confusing you.

Ah, thanks! Anyways, I'm also pleasantly surprised at how much detail went into this story, all the way down to how many ribbons Komari has. I guess VNs really are like novels in that they go through a lot of planning and revision before release. From what I've seen in Bakuman, manga stories don't have to be planned out completely before they begin. Do anime scripts go through as much work?

Anime original series probably do, like series like Psycho-Pass, Cowboy Bebop, etc.
Heh, there's some importance to the # of ribbons Komari has, and the order of the 10 Little Busters I listed, but I won't spoil you further, I just like to drop hints to see if other people catch them ^^

D'aww. I never thought an episode about puppet shows could be so cute and heartwarming! Also nice to see more of Komari, I feel like she's been neglected ever since her route ended near the beginning.

I really really didnt like that they pushed the roof top scene like that. I guess because they are making it into 2 seasons they have to flesh everything out a bit though. Overall a decent episode. All the hints for refrain keep coming like crazy. Its almost as though JC staff is saying hey "hey we know this is going to happen but you dont, i wonder how much we can foreshadow before you figure out exactly what it is."

I kinda lawled at the puppet show mio scene for 2 reasons, one it was funny as it was but also in the original VN, the voice actress who voiced rin did riki as well, it felt like a subtle nod to that.

Though you know, it kinda reminds me that the cast for this anime and for the VN before it is just so spectacular. each of the actors and actresses are good enough to be main characters in their own anime.

I must admit that all the VAs in the anime have showed their stuff in one part or another. For sure Mio was flushed out this episode, can't say many other animes have a full slot of good VAs for their main characters.

Super cute episode, but as an anime only viewer I've totally lost it by now which route we're currently in or what we've of which one so far. Kinda thought this was part of Rin's route, but seems like it was common route. Damn, I hope they'll continue fast after this season ends.

The focus is lost far too often and easily. Even if you are aware of the climax.


Who said anything about an episode making the whole season good? My point is, even those who didn't read the VN will understand that this is not an anime about doing nothing. That there is a deep and dramatic story waiting further on. You can't deny that anymore.
Also, how did you come up with a count of 20+ episodes of doing nothing? We had 4 heroine arcs, with 3-4 episodes each plus introduction. I sure would like to know what 'nothing' looks like in your world. 'Cause to me, most parts of that 'nothing' are in fact story. Mio route was pretty well-made, Haruka route was an a success and Kud route totally took the cake. The episodes are getting better, meaning - there is a positive tendency. Sure, the first few episodes weren't as well executed.
The common route episodes weren't pointless either. They serve an important purpuse: To empathize the friendship topic and make sure the whole series doesn't feel like there's nothing but drama. They increase the impact on the ending.

Well done, JCS, well done. Marvelous and heartwarming episode! :)

And foreshadowing everywhere. But it doesn't matter cause that Rin/Komari scene happened before Refrain, so it right to put it here.

All this secret of the world teasing is torture to the poor anime viewers(me)

Dunno if I should wait for Refrain, or satiate my Chitanda level curiosity and read the VN...

Anyway, this was a really strong episode. Just about every scene had me laughing, smiling, or going insane thinking about the secret of the world. And everyone but Kud(naturally) had some great highlights. ESPECIALLY MIO, MY GOODNESS

Ok chapter. 2.7/5.

I felt it some boring at times, but it started to get more intresting in half. After looking for Komari´s story about the Girl, the Boy and the 8 dwarfs, the story is having more sense now...
Fuck, I could see that the final 2 chaps. will be intresting. Fuck, how time has passed...

PD: Mio and Masato stories RULEZ.


This is how it all begins.

OH. MY. GOD. Mio, why are you so great?

I swear, the adorable relationship between Komari and Rin makes me so happy. I just... they make me squee~

What "Adolescence" do you have?
Do you remember "Childhood"?
The irreplaceable one existed there.

So I finally caught up with this series after everyone was gushing about the Kud episode.

I have to admit that i've been pleasantly surprised so far.I'm enjoying the adaption a lot more than I thought I would. Animated Rin is a nice bonus as well.

Enjoyed this episode. I was kinda surprised by the rooftop scene. Didn't quite expect to see that, but it wasn't unwelcomed; It actually kinda made me tear up a bit goddamn it. Can't help but adore Komari and Rin's friendship

So much foreshadowing as well. i really can't wait to see how they pull off Refrain, If pulled off right, it'll probably get me just as hard as it did the first time...and second...
