Kawase Kohei, the producer of Warner Entertainment Japan, revealed on a web radio program that there will be an announcement at the end of the final episode of Little Busters!. He said, "We know it's impossible to cover the whole story with the current pace. We have promised to animate the entire scenario of the game. I cannot make it clear here but you know what I mean, right? If you watch the 26th episode, there will be a message that you want. Please don't be suspicious. The arcs of your favorite characters will surely be animated. We know 26 episodes is too short."

Shouldn't they have thought of this before they animated the series?


I think they planned this all along, though. Maybe they had already decided to make it split-cour (or whatever) back then and decided to let people know now than wait half a year and leave everyone in suspense.

I hope this isnt just a dream made by riki and his narcolepsy. Also by the looks of it kyoske is gonna get knocked the fuck out because he must have told the truth about hos future sight(my name for it) and i bet he took it the wrong way like he is messing with their lives like a god.
And its obvious that Rin and Riki shall end up together. But they will have some extreme trials to face.

The official twitter account is telling people to make sure they watch the final minute of Episode 26.

A trailer and announcement for Refrain, perhaps?


I am surprised every anime watcher doesn't know this already: ALWAYS WATCH TO THE VERY END OF ANIME EPISODES, ESPECIALLY THE LAST ONE!!!!!

There are people who didn't watch the last few minutes of Angel Beats...


You're right on there, always watch till the end, I mean watching the ED one last time isn't that bad is it?

There's no way we'd be done after this coming season. Give them time, they're working on something really good in the making and hell I could give less of a damn if they don't live up to VN expectations/artwork.

For one, I actually think this adaptation is strong despite my previous skepticism.


I love the anime! Even without romance I find it is very emotional, highly engaging, funny, very rewatchable. Definitely deserves its sales though I know the producers wish they were even higher.

MAL now shows 25 episodes. Does that mean we'll never get this announcement?! Nooo!


I don't think so.

Even if this season really ends with episode 25 or it's still episode 26, either way we're still getting an announcement about the continuation after the last episode of this season.

It's confirmed that season 1 had no romance. You should probably wait for season 2.

MAL got it wrong. TV guide magazines in Japan show 26 episodes with the last episode to be aired on Apr 6th. The last episode has Riki suddenly becoming the team leader.


Yeah I figured, the DVD/BD Vol. 9 has episodes 25-26 as well, and it wouldn't count the OVA as episode 26 since you need to send in the receipts for all 9 volumes to get it.

It was an intentional choice by JC Staff, and the right one. It wouldn't make sense in the anime format if Riki was going around dating all the girls at the same time. With the VN, yo have to start a new game once you finish each route so the story doesn't carry over, so it makes more sense to do romance.

It coulda done the format like Amagami did I guess, but it wouldn't make sense with the common route thrown in there too.


Had they done that they could have easily made a school days with friendship and moe...Thank god they didn't...
