Little Busters!

    It's a bit early but I figure why not get a thread going for the upcoming anime Little Busters! Set to air Saturday October 6th Little Busters! is the newest adaptation of one of Key's visual novels. It's being animated by J.C. Staff (Azumanga Daioh, Bakuman, Shakugan no Shana, Slayers) and directed by Yoshiki Yamakawa (... Kill Me Baby).

    Who's excited? Post what you think about it here.

    I'm really excited for it. Everyday I get more and more pumped waiting. I have NO idea what it's about since I haven't read the summary about it but that's because summaries don't tell me anything I want or need to know.

    Whoo. Congrats, Champ. *slow clap*

    I said it once somewhere before, and I'll say it again. I'm taking Jolteon's claims into consideration along with a grain of salt, so while I am going to watch this, I'm waiting until every single episode is out. A series like this (especially one from Key), I feel, needs to be watched fully and close together as much as possible for a fuller effect. If it takes a couple of years to be completed, I'm willing to wait, so it'll be on my list.

    Sure, I could look up the visual novel and not have to wait, but I don't want to risk being let down. (It's what I did with CLANNAD and Higurashi--watched the anime first then went for the original material.)

    Geez, slow down there. Can we really talk about Little Busters! for over a week before it airs? Oh wait... ;135;

    Speaking of Jolteon91, the main reasons that I'm planning to watch this is that 1) the two adaptations (three series) of visual novels by Key that I've seen so far have ranged from pretty good to freaking incredible, and 2) Jolteon91 has been hyping Little Busters! up since before the anime adaptation even got announced. I don't actually know much about it beyond there being friendship and romance.

    But, you know, a well executed story with friendship and romance as its main elements is something that really appeals to me. It has to be done really well, but J.C. Staff have pulled it off before (Toradora!), so I'm pretty optimistic.

    Hau-au-au?! I didn't say anything bad about Little Busters! I was just saying I'm waiting for all the episodes to be out before I see it! I also said I won't look up the visual novel until after I watch the anime in case the anime disappoints me in some way! Can't blame me for being cautious!

    Hey, thanks. ^_^

    I'm of course going to be watching it as it airs. Then probably again after if it's as good as I hope.

    I don't think they said anything bad about it.

    And I'm glad for it!

    Same here.

    I was just thinking that. And I WILL be posting an image of Vegeta when I hit 9001, I assure you.

    Basically, am jus' yankin' yer chain, ya dig?

    I tend to prefer that viewing method myself, the week-to-week method kills me.

    Speaking of, since you're taking the longer route, make sure you try to stay away from spoilers.

    By the way, spoilers in spoiler tags guys. Just in case.

    Hauuu... I can hardly tell through text what's sarcasm and what's not... *thumb twiddle*

    I have a ridiculous amount of free time a lot, so I figure that once all the episodes are out, I would have a marathon like I did with CLANNAD. And if it's just as tear-jerking as CLANNAD, the tears will flow much more easily than a week-by-week. I don't have the sharpest of memories, after all.

    All the CLANNAD hype makes me want to pick it up after I finish iDOLM@ster, which should be in the next couple of days, only got 10 episodes left.

    Charizard Champion#06 Spiral Warrior

    OH DUDE, you really should pick it up. Marathon it or something I dunno, it's my all time favourite anime (that isn't called Gurren Lagann.)

    I have undiagnosed ADD, I have trouble watching more than 10 episodes in one sitting. I'm kinda torn cause Jolteon himself suggested iDOL, and Steins;Gate so it's between CLANNAD and SG

    As incredible as Steins;Gate is I'm still saying Clannad is even better.

    Well I'm a sucker for romance and drama, basically all things sad, so I might have to take your recommendation first this time.

    I don't think I really need to post how excited about this I am, so instead I'll post the five CMs that have been released so far.

    CM 1 Riki
    CM 2 Kyousuke and CM 3 Rin
    CM 4 Kud
    CM 5 Masato and Kengo

    I know I've hyped the hell out of this series, but I wouldn't have done so if the source material wasn't so damn good.

    You haven't seen Clannad? You really need to change that.

    How's that one?
  20. I heard the Visual Novel for this was very good so I'm really looking forward to this. Oh and the art is brilliant.

    Other than that I'm just watching it for the heck of it. No I'm joking I just want to fit in with the veterans
