Little Busters!

Wikipedia wrote:The story of Little Busters! revolves around the main protagonist Naoe Riki, a young male high school student. When Riki was a child, his parents died, leaving him hopeless and depressed. He was saved by a group of three young boys and one girl his age, who referred to themselves as the Little Busters, a group dedicated to fighting evil and preserving justice.

The leader of the group was Natsume Kyousuke, who had a younger sister named Rin. The other two members were Inohara Masato and Miyazawa Kengo, who were rivals despite being friends. They took Riki out and played together with him during his time of need, making him the fifth Little Busters member. In time, Riki enjoyed playing with them, and his grief over his parents gradually faded away. Now, Riki and his friends are in their second year of high school, except for Kyousuke who is in his third year. They still hang out together, and enjoy their school life.

Damn, I knew this was going to be bad, but it actually exceeded my expectetions and ended up worse than I thought it would be. A must see in its own way, possibly trollsubbed to actually sustain a whole episode awake. Because JC Staff shows do cause Narcolepsy OHBURN.

But yeah. Here's what we have so far (obviously simplified for lulz purposes).

Little Busters: hey guys, how about we start a baseball club? We'll need members though.
Clannad: hey guys, how about we start a theater club? We'll need members though.
Kanon: no club!

Little Busters: hey retarded moe loli (Komari), join our club!
Clannad: hey retarded moe loli (Fuuko), join our club!
Kanon: hey retarded moe loli (Makoto), join our home!

More of a Jun Maeda hater, to be honest. I'd actually be genuinely interested in watching an anime adaptation of Planetarian. But obviously, it was completely skipped and got no anime adaptation.

I watched the first ep and was kinda meh. One or two parts got a smile out of me but other than that it was pretty average. Might watch another ep just to see if it gets better, either that or just see if this thread gets any positive comments in the future

Well if you enjoyed Clannad, Angel beats or any of other Key's works and their anime adaptions then you should stick to this. Your looking at the wrong place for positive comments.. there are other forums that have all the fans crown into a place but i guess you wouldn't care about that, but i personally recommend you this anime and hope you can also see the anime through! This show is still as over-hyped as ever seeing that it remains as one of top animes this season for japanese fans (mostly visual novel players) and I know the director and producers won't let us down. Just hope anime viewers who knows nothing about it can get hooked enough to watch it as it progresses.

Wonder if the first season of Clannad has this kind of reaction when it was airing..

You hurt my man pride a little pointing out their similarities. Clannad is one of my favs, Fuuko being one of my favorite characters, regardless of how irrelevant her story arc was.

I know that this show is based off a visual novel, but there is no need for it to actually feel like one. Every single character introduction feels like its a cutscene ripped straight out of the game. Since Little Busters had some of the same writers as Angel Beats, I was expecting so much from it. I really am a bit disappointed.

I actually went to wikipedia in order to get spoilers about the plot and find a reason to keep watching the show. The upcoming plot of the show seems really good (on par with Angel Beats actually), but I really don't like any of the characters so far. They all seem so generic. I'll give this show at least one more episode though.

After 4 whole episodes, the show is finally becoming tolerable. I'm really curious about the old guy in the retirement home. And I'm glad that Kud is finally in the picture. Even though she only had a short part, she's already become my favorite character so far.

Though I agree with modkip on keys way of writing novels its better then most of the moe stuff that was thrown down our throats, there are too many instant content shows im kind of enjoying the slower pace, but if I don't get anything soon I will probably just drop it and wait for something else.

Wow, large jump in animation compared to the first episode...
I hope this season will be properly done compared to the first season

First episode was amazing so far, and the opening reminded me how beautiful Key's music were XD
