These two anime may have quite a different plot, but I felt the vibe they gave off to be the same. Aside from the vibe, I think both have a story that contains humor, (though Little Busters! has more humor in it than Little Busters: Refrain.) drama and a beautiful deeper meaning. Be sure to keep a box of tissues nearby, though, because you wouldn't be the first one to cry your eyes out.

Both Key works Little Busters being a VN adaption and Angel Beats being an anime original. Jun Maeda wrote both Angel Beats and Little Busters. It's very hard to explain without spoiling both shows, but they both share many of the same themes and motifs.

Though I would never recommend skipping the first season of Little Busters, this second season is what made the series worthwhile. In Refrain, the main plot finally begins to unfold and takes on many characteristics of Angel Beats. This is mainly a result of the growing supernatural phenomena. Both play with themes including death, school life, past grief, acceptance through companionship, and loss. Both shows are set in an abnormal and ominous world that the characters don't quite understand. Refrain had a previous season to develop characters, where Angel Beats had 13 episodes to do so. That being said, there are still tremendous parallels within the   read more

Both are from the same creator, but LB is so ignorated because of his 1st season, which is a bit painful to watch. But like Angel Beats, the best part is in the end. One of the very few animes that I reccomend to watch the 1st season (Little Busters!) only to enjoy the 2nd one (Refrain). Really worth it. If Angel Beats did make some tears in your eyes, I think Little Busters will also get the job done.
