THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well, the latest episode was alright I guess. Loved watching some of the happy moments in this episode with the smiles. Lol @ Kud this episode as usual. Oh God, that cute little cookie. Hope Riki will make a fine leader on the team. Overall, I sort of liked LB in a way. I also hope that Refrain will be adapted well in the future.

Otherwise, I'm definitely expecting Season 2 to be animated in the future! Go team:

Judging from that "In addition, the anime will repeat on Tokyo MX starting on Thursday, April 11."

We won't get it until next year or Fall 2013.

The whole episode brought a nice, big smile to my face :D. And that Season 2 announcement!! I couldn't help but grin at that moment. October 6th 2013, you better come fast!! (I assume this is when it airs as that's when it aired last year)

I really appreciated the inclusion of Miyuki, Kanata, A-chan and Sasami+fangirls spectating the game, along with the fun little moments with the all-star team getting charmed by Kud and Komari.

Nice episode to wrap up the first season.
So many feels in this episode though! All the thank yous hit me hard as
And that PV. FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELS ;__; I'm certainly hyped for Refrain.

Overall, this series was a roller coaster ride. Some parts were pretty bad and some were amazingly hilarious or hit the feels very nicely.

So alot of people were hyping up the announcement but it was just for season 2 which we all expected haha

Great final episode; I almost shed a tear at the end when they took the photo :) Music was kind of weird, playing Mios theme when Haruka showed up but strangely it fit well.

I think some anime only viewers will be left unsatisfied though because for 25 episodes they were prepping up for the baseball game and it only lasts for 2 minutes lol. And there wasn't any "secret of the world" cliffhanger but I think the Refrain shots will be enough to see people coming back.

Finally, the horrible routes are done. I keep associating LB with the terrible routes and not its greatest strength, Refrain. And when I do think of Refrain, I remember how awful the routes are. God, this VN needs to be fixed.

All I can say is that I'm hyped and ready to look at Refrain in a fresh look.
I work in VNs. Sometimes, they have h-scenes and I go "waai~". I also like to not write at Oppai is Justice, a blog with great urls.

couldn't wait anymore so watched it raw; will watch subs later when UTW releases them tonight.

Certainly not a bad adaption; surely it's not perfect (neither is Clannad) but I still enjoyed it intensely; it was like every episode only lasted a few minutes. Some episodes where heartwarming while others where quite sad. Funny thing is, that a long time ago (before I even knew what anime was), one day I saw a link and picture to something called "Little Busters" and I thought it was childish; but now I learned it is the most awesome thing in this world. Unfortunately now I have to wait at least half a year for Refrain; but I'm already extremely hyped; certainly going to miss this anime for the coming time.

Thank you JC Staff for the adaption of the first season; now make the second season even better please! For me, this anime certainly lived up to the (very high) expectations.

Well, it also says that they didn't get any runs on the last outing, which we know is wrong anyway, because we had Kurugaya, Kud and Riki make a run at the end, so I feel it's pretty obvious that JC just messed that up (although I can hardly read the boards anyway).

J.C. Staff did a god job adapting this series despite the flaws seen these past few weeks.
9/10 for the series.
And by the way, I don't think KyoAni can do a better adaptation of LB! than J.C.

A fantastic season finale to a great show that is Little Busters! It all started with the intrumental version of Faraway, and I loved to see Kengo as one of the baseball team and all happy and smiling. How I missed that!

There wasn't much going on this episode and it was all good. Girls saying their reason and thanks to Riki for their struggle and the way he has helped them together and moved on.

Kyousuke with more foreshadowing of what we are to expect the coming season, which I am really hyped about!

And the best part of this episode, they went with Little Busters winning the match! I'll honestly say that it took me a few dozen tries to win it due to RNG playing with me, but this was just great to watch, especially with the opening song being played during the match.

JC Staff did a good job adapting, though they struggled a bit, but it got better as the show progressed, and to adapt something like this into an anime is not a easy task at all. I am pleased with the show so far, and I hope Refrain is going to be really well adapted and done really well, just as how good Refrain was in the VN.

There were some rushed moments here and there during the season, but they did a good job nonetheless. I was not fan of those spandex ass shots that would just crawl up to you, hopefully there won't be much about that in Refrain.

My score for the first season is 8/10. JC Staff: It gets better.

Judging from the preview, we got some really intense stuff coming towards us on the next season, and what in my opinion is the core of Little Busters, Refrain. If done properly, this could be god tier. Also Kengo's outrage on Kyousuke, God I am looking forward to that. Refrain~

I'm not trying to go against the crowd or be a J.C. hater, but I found this adaption/build up to be mainly mediocre, so I'm giving it a 5/10.

I wasn't too fond of how the arcs were executed, particularly Kud's and her deus ex machina (which I know will be explained later, but still) not to mention time to get attached and really know all the characters wasn't spent well.

Again, I do realize this was a buildup and from what I've heard it's undoubtable that Refrain will reach a higher score than this did, but even as a buildup it felt very weak to me. Nothing really stood out. Standard visuals, overused music, bland comedy.

The characters definitely weren't bad. Not even Komari whom people seem to hate. I liked them, but never got attached to them.

Here's to hoping for great things from Refrain!

yawn.

the whole anime was soo dull and there was waaay too much melodrama and moe for my taste and i dont even know how i managed to finish it. i wont even touch the sequel.

Little Busters! bored me to DEATH!

BUT it had parts which i really liked so i dont really want to slap a 5/10 rating on it so i have to go with 6/10.

just wanna say those kids have some REAL problems.

Rooftop scene with Komari made me cry. It was probably because of Song For Friends, but still. This episode was great. I went through the whole season going from hating it one episode and loving it the next, but I must say the last 3 or 4 episodes were fantastic. Can't wait for Refrain.

I think I might marathon rewatch this season sometime before Refrain, I might like it better than way than watching it week to week.

A simple episode but pack with the emotions of friendship.

Haven't play the VN but now I want to go play it before Refrain airs! I honestly enjoy this anime for its concept of the power of friendship. J.C. Staff you might have receive a strange split among the fanbase. You did a good job adapting a novel that is known to take 50+ hours to complete (including the arcs that will be in Refrain).

8/10 from me ^^

I really wanted to write about a lot of things when it came to this adaptation (sometimes I did xD) but I did not feel the need to do so (in most cases). Alas it is the end of the 1st season and I would like to comment in a way fitting this show. Unfortunately Kengo stole my catch phrase I wanted to use to describe the show, namely: Little Busters Saikou!

B-But Fu-chan is precious angel. ;_;

Also, I wonder if this is gonna turn into a Clannad vs Little Busters war. Admit it -- they're both moe melodrama (their first season counterparts at least) but with different characters and situations.
