WTF IS GOING ON D:
WHY WAS THE DAY ERASED :( It was such a beautiful day.

Edit: Is he going to be trapped on this day until he finds our his true feelings? D:


No, he's stuck on that day for another Reason, not cause of his feelings/emotions. ull understand the "secret of the world" soon enough :)

Also, Yes Riki and Kurugaya mightve been dating before the time loop started taking place. But we will only know that in episode 3 :)

Nice!!

But... They skip the whole Love-Love/Loli-Loli Hunter game... T_T That part was hilarious...

Sad to see that they took out the most funniest part of the scene with Kyousuke.

so, Kyousuke is pretty much forcing these romantic events on Riki, Riki got embarrassed because, the idea has been put in his head and he's probably the type to get embarrassed about romance.

Riki's probably been convinced he likes Kurugaya, even though he doesn't, and Kurugaya's feelings are being played with because of this~

that's what I'm getting at least, and Kurugaya's Route is just some big event to make Rin and Riki realise their feelings for each other~

I died a little inside after reading this line, I really do wonder what JC Staff is trying to accomplish by giving this message.

Here's some food for thought... What if it is not about jealousy at all? What if she simply disapproved of Kyousuke forcing his plan onto Riki. Just because Riki reacted to Rin's death stare, doesn't mean it was directed at him.

So true, KyoAni erased all sub-heroines' romance and dating part too. I didn't see many complain on it , why?

There's another thread about differences of VN and anime, so please just stop talking about that here.

I think people are looking a little too much into this. This is still Kurugaya's route. Rin's reactions like took 30 seconds of the entire episode, it is not like she has hijacked the entire arc. It isn't that big a deal.

The fireworks were still part of Kyousuke's plan. She's smart enough to realize that (Which is strange in itself, because I would have never imagined VN Rin being smart. Just another feather in JC Staff's cap I suppose).

Probably because people are dead set on shipping them for whatever reason. I hope these aren't VN players shipping them.

Though because of the EX season I'm pretty sure Riki will just be forever alone.

Hmm true, It can go either way though. Rins feelings towards Riki, or your input on it, but all we can do is wait until next episode. Who do you think Riki loves though?

Good question. Judging by his reactions, I can't really doubt he feels something for Kurugaya. But there is also the fact that he looked at Rin when Kyousuke asked who he loved.

It would be nice to see a potential love triangle, but Kurugaya's story doesn't end well (Well, unless you play her true end), so Rin it is I suppose. Honestly, it is going to make the ending of Kurugaya's route all the more sadder and I can't wait to see it.


Yea, it would be a sad episode indeed. Though episode 4 will be so epic I cant wait for it, I wonder if the extra scene's of Rin in episode 2,


Also another thing Riki also flashbacked to where Rin looked at him and questioned himself "who do I really love?"

More food for thought. If we for some reason discard the "Rin disapproving of Kyousuke" idea, there is also the possibility that it isn't jealousy that Rin feels, rather she is uncertain of her own feelings. She feels something (And maybe Kyousuke has something to do with it too), but doesn't know what they are exactly or how to deal with them.

Thats possibly it, her feelings are all muddled up, and she's confused about her own feelings, Rin and Riki have been together (obviously in the Little busters gang) for a long time, and she probably developed feelings for him quite awhile ago but doesent knw what to do about it. I for one find a lovey-dovey Rin so cute.

Decent episode, Loli Loli hunters made me laugh so much, I'm a loli hunter myself. Miko, meido, loli, everyone has some kind of fetish~

Some cute Riki x Kurugaya moments, not enough though. Wonder how long this arc is going to last.

Well, this episode reminded me a lot of Suzumiya Haruhi because of the time loop, maybe one of the most interesting episodes in the whole series so far.

Also, lol @ the 21 part

I personally feel like the misconceptions with Rin should be done away with, a bit, here on the forums.
I would rather people not lose focus on Kurugaya's situation by focusing on Rin for this arc, even if it denies someone's theory of what's going on in LB:R, so I agree Naoki's decision to answer it.

Yeah, I think VN players should stop answering to speculations because it kills the fun of watching a show... if the change has already happened then maybe talking about it would be fine but not when it is has yet to happen or obviously is not supposed to be answered yet... The anime-VN thread should be enough to discuss about changes

Yeah you guys are probably right, but I just hate JC Staff for inspiring some of these crazed Rin-related theories, despite how realistic the scene with her during the fireworks might have been to include in the anime.

I freaking love the ED, thought it doesn't have any animation.
The song reminds me of Clannad's story.
I think people might not appreciate "Boys be Smile" and "Kimi to no Nakushi Mono" until they read the lyrics after having seen the anime completely or read Refrain.
Most of LB's songs are elaborations of the story from different character perspectives.
Like, "Little Busters!" is from primarily Riki's perspective, with lines addressed back to Riki from Kyosuke. (The lines that address "you")

They add "I want to help Rin!" in Kud's route, Rin is 1000% more involved in Komari's, and the list goes on...

The truth is : they always involve Rin further in almost every routes, it's needed since we can't have "magical stats boost and attitude change for every completed route even though Rin is doing nothing" like in VN. And here several people got very angry over a water drop at a puddle.

I don't want to debate this, but please refrain from keep nagging "special rights of exclusivity" just for Kurugaya. This is an adaptation, not an animated VN. Thus, excessive VN comparison shouldn't belong in here, especially answering speculation just because it's not true.

I agree with this. I think most people (especially VN readers) would agree the first season of LB felt a bit off. It wasn't bad but it felt very disjointed at parts. And I believe it's because J.C. was trying to stay true(ish) to the V.N. routes while still keeping it as one coherent story, which isn't how a visual novel works.

But so far in this season I like what they're doing. The focus is going to have to be on Rin and Riki for later on in Refrain, it cannot be any other way and still be Little Busters. They heavily implied that Riki has some kind of feelings for Rin in the scene in Riki's soon (right b4 loli loli hunters) even if he hasn't realized it yet. And they implied she has feelings for him as well.

I hope they continue to deviate from the V.N. like this. I'm so ready to get off of the other routes and get to the core of the story. Anything J.C. can do to make it feel more coherent while we're on the other routes is only a plus in my opinion. There's no way an anime could tell a story like Little Busters in the same way a V.N. could because we'd end up watching the same core episodes 5x with different branches. I don't want anymore endless 8's, do you?

I think I've gotten over the scene, now. I just hope JC Staff considers what the anime watchers are speculating about Kurugaya's route, and how Rin may be involved, and I hope that they tear down any misbelief about what her route is supposed to be about. I already figured they would have this one-sided romance from Kurugaya, but JC Staff is teasing back at forth with how they're going to do it.

>Let's make Fireworks
Yes, romance route
>with everyone
Fuck
>"You should be alone with Kurugaya, Riki"
Yes, romance route
>I can't together alone with Kurugaya, Kyousuke
Fuck
>everyone gone because ghost story
>Riki together with Kurugaya alone
Yes, romance route
>Rin tears
J-J-JC Staff, what did you do?

JC Staff is screwing with me too hard.
I think the hints of Rin romance later will work out well in the long run, but I hope they don't kill the purpose of the route. I felt a lot in Kurugaya's route. I'll probably get a similar feeling, seeing how they foreshadowed that they're keeping the ending the same. I just want to see some development next episode and focus on Kurugaya, at least, if not any romance in return from Riki.

I really feel like they're going to make viewers feel like Riki and Kurugaya can't be together because of Rin

I'm quite surprised at the number of anime-only viewers who are actually participating.

I mean, I thought LBR was a very, very niche anime for:
1. VN readers (clearly the majority)
2. People who watched season 1 and didn't immediately hate it (not very many, from what I saw last year). I'm actually astounded at how bad a reputation LB has in fansubbing circles. I mean, sure, season 1 wasn't as good as it could be, but it certainly wasn't any worse than some of the other animes in Fall 2012. I don't see why UTW and FFF (among others) hate it so much. Unless they're being sarcastic, but I don't think they were.

But anyways, having curious and constructive anime-only viewers is a good sign, and there definitely seem to be fewer...errr...less constructive...viewers this time around.

Isn't this contradictory though? you are worried that by showing Rin like this it'll make it seem like Riki can't love Kurugaya: but if you just ignore Rin and try to do it exactly like the VN did it you'll eventually end up doing the same thing. Riki can't love Kurugaya because he ended up in love with Rin. This isn't the V.N. and everybody can't have their favorite route played out just like it was there. Showing Rin now makes for a more flowing experience in the anime, since we can't "replay" the routes like we did in the V.N.

In short though: Riki can't love Kurugaya. Because


The anime shouldn't try to be the V.N. and I think too many V.N. readers want it to play out that way.

J-J-JC Staff, what did you do?

JC Staff is screwing with me too hard.
I think the hints of Rin romance later will work out well in the long run, but I hope they don't kill the purpose of the route. I felt a lot in Kurugaya's route. I'll probably get a similar feeling, seeing how they foreshadowed that they're keeping the ending the same. I just want to see some development next episode and focus on Kurugaya, at least, if not any romance in return from Riki.

I really feel like they're going to make viewers feel like Riki and Kurugaya can't be together because of Rin


I think he cant be together with Kurugaya, because he loves/has feelings for Rin.. and well just does not know how to show it, Since he's probably feeling shy. Just by looking at Rin when kyousuke asked who he loves is a sign. Im eager to see what JC Staff will do, considering those extra added scene's and those hints they gave us.

This show is developing alright. Whether or not it's going well as an adaptation I have no clue.

I don't really think you should answer that part...

<regarding Naoki's answer about loops>

I personally feel like the misconceptions with Rin should be done away with, a bit, here on the forums.
I would rather people not lose focus on Kurugaya's situation by focusing on Rin for this arc, even if it denies someone's theory of what's going on in LB:R, so I agree Naoki's decision to answer it.


What I mean is, he should let him do some


I hope you understand what I'm trying to point out because I couldn't put it in words on what I want say.


Okok, I'm sorry I butted in. I just thought it's better to clean up some misunderstandings since people seriously think Kurugaya is just a tool for promoting Rin's romance. But this is still Kurugaya route and Rin did by no means hijack it.
There is a reason why her route is the first among all where J.C. actually included romance.
There is a reason why her route is aired during Refrain and not in season 1.
But those assumptions demean Kurugaya's value...

But I guess you're right. I shouldn't have restricted the speculations of anime-only viewers no matter the reason. Sorry about that.

Im guessing everything will get answered in Episode 3, if Riki and Kurugaya actually did date before the world kept on having its emo moments and resetting.

In short though: Riki can't love Kurugaya. Because


The anime shouldn't try to be the V.N. and I think too many V.N. readers want it to play out that way.


I think you have a lot of misconceptions there.

(warning, great spoilers)

no love love hunters with the girls.

they can still do it in next repeat of the day.

But nevertheless, this episode was fun (it's first half) but I just wonder if they will ever go full love to some heroine, I wonder they leaving it only for Rin since she left the scene brokenhearted it seems.
I hope they do rest of the Kuragaya arc right.

Im thinking of a full love route with Rin, it seems like it.
