Well, the ED isn't really a bad song. I'm sure a lot of the Japanese people appreciate the lyrics and the composition of the song.

It's supposed to be a farewell song to Rin from Komari's perspective, which is why it has an odd starting theme to it, but procedes towards the more normal pacing of the song after the beginning. It's kind of like how Komari starts out as a complete dummy but has her more serious moments in Refrain. I think maybe the first 10 seconds of Refrian's ED could've improved for normalcy's sake, but the song itself is great imo, and Ayaka Kitazawa <3

Well yeah, I'm not saying it's bad. I think the lyrics are good and all, but the music itself (especially the beginning like you said) seems so out of place for me after an episode ending in a sad tone :/ It actually kinda sounds happy for me if I don't think about the lyrics :D

Well, JC Staff using it in episode 12 was a pretty.... questionable choice. They only used the ED for 6 episodes, anyway, so it winds up sounding out of place when they use it for an episode like that. Hell, I think even this would've been a good song to use for that episode over Kimi to lalala - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdzfoBF6hWc

That song is confirmed as the LB EX ending theme, if anyone cares to know~

Response when I asked about the Refrain! OST From hikarinoakariost.com

"nobody in the internet have this CD yet.... remenber this a exclusive original soundtrack from c85 it may take weeks to someone upload..............."

So yea, might take weeks for someone to actually upload the OST. since it is actually exclusive.

Well, it's exclusive now, but I would've imagined that Key would eventually release it outside of Comiket. We're stuck waiting, either way.

Screw the people who have this and their law-abiding ways....

Someone needs to upload this or at the very least Key should put it up on iTunes. They have quite a few albums on iTunes now including the Little Busters! OST, Kud Wafter's OP, and a few other neat things. But no Refrain OST, which I guess we'll have to wait for. I really thought it'd be out by now.

And Vladzor, why are the sales for their CDs low? VN players hate the music or something? And how are the BD sales doing? Personally I love Refrain's ED theme. It's beautiful, has great lyrics, and an amazing singer. It's one of my favorite anime ending songs ever. I don't know why other people here hate on it, except maybe it's awkward use in episode eleven (JC Staff at its finest).

I'll post on here when I see it on the internet. The Little Busters! Wiki has a tracklist already, and someone on VGMDB claims to own it (it says 1 person has this in their collection). It should be uploaded... =/

Well, I figure the sales for the CDs are low because the anime is subpar, and because Japan is even more anal about the voice acting and animation for the show. People on 2ch mentioned the animation every single week as a factor that wouldn't be an issue with KyoAni. The BD sales were 10.5k for the first season, and the CD sales were I think a little more than half as much as Clannad's.

I dunno. My Chinese friend irl who holds Refrain as the best thing he's ever read didn't even want to pick up the Little Busters anime once JC Staff started producing it. I had to bring my tablet into school and show him episodes just to get him to watch part of it.

Buying the OST usually implies that you some kind of emotional attachment or got a lot of enjoyment out of the show. I like the songs for their lyrics, and always associated certain lines with pivotal events and whatnot.

The season 1 OST sales weren't as low.

1st week: *8, *,*11,108 *,*11,108 Little Busters! "Little Busters!" "Alicemagic"
2nd week: 26, *3,598 14,706 Little Busters! "Little Busters!" "Alicemagic"

But yeah, it's not like a shitton of VN players are going out to buy the anime and the OST because JC Staff is producing it. Thus why Little Busters is selling less than half as well as any other Key anime adaptation. It's still a pretty high amount considering how cheaply this show was produced, and there's definitely some Key/VN bias in that.

I mean, jeez, there aren't even good Little Busters doujins getting scanned. It really doesn't seem to have much of a following worth being in.

So basically, the people who normally buy these things are the VN players and because JC Staff screwed the adaption up so badly they aren't buying? Good. This raises the chances of a KyoAni adaption in four or so years. But still sad, I want to hear the Refrain OST. They didn't have any emotional tracks as far as I can recall. I only remember that song from the baseball game between Kyousuke/Masato and Kengo/Riki.

It plays in ep 11 when Riki remembers everything during the slide show. It's one of my favorite tracks in the OST :3

Same here, love this track. There isn't a lot of memorable ones though (I only speak about the anime-only soundtracks, huh).
