I always felt that where KyoAni excelled was visual presentation, not necessarily the animation itself. Although I don't want them touching this project for reasons that essentially boil down to spite, I also can't imagine a successful Key adaptation without their distinctive touch.

I'm conflicted.

Have they ever done a VN adaptation besides Chaos;head?
Little Busters doesn't seem like the kind of project they'd do.


But seriously we've now gone through almost every studio in existence,it's getting pointless,we better stop short before someone mentions Bee Train.... oh wait I just did

actually their phantom adaptation was quite good, but certainly they never used characters designs anywhere near maeda´s.

It seems they are getting out of their money problem these days (Nisemonogatari for example) thanks to the things they can do with severely limited budget, and yet create smash hits. How many studios can say that?

And KyoAni isn't all that special if we are considering the aspect of overall animation. Aside from their work in FMP Second Raid, they are mostly average. Studios like Production I. G., Sunrise, Gainax are way ahead when it comes to animated movement. And besides, shows like Air, Kanon, or Clannad didn't really require much movement to tell the story. To me it always looked like they spent a significant portion of their time and money to create OP/ED song theme than the actual show.

*waves back at Skyfall*
As a KyoAni fan, I never really focused on their animation. Yes, they have great animators and they are at the top of their industry, but they are not alone.

What makes them unusual, is their willingness to bend over backwards for the pleasure of the original rights holders. KyoAni will make what Key wants, in this we have no doubt. The same cannot be said for any other studio, even if they could match KyoAni in art quality. (Though Shaft recently might be trying to imitate them in sticking to the source at all costs.)

Even the mighty Ghibli attract ire for their adaptation films, which are often nothing like the source material. If you love Little Busters, there is no better choice for an adaptation other than KyoAni.

PV from new Key site:


Edit: Should also mention that it is 00:31 in JST. Visual Arts has performed stunts like this on 4/1 in the past. Only one of those was false though.
Edit 2: The site lists a copyright that only includes Key and Visual Arts. Usually these copyrights will include a production committee for an anime. I'm not saying it's false, but that was a red flag for me.

Animation doesn't look bad, but you can cross Kyoto Animation and PA Works on the list of animation studios handling this.

Madhouse isn't really Madhouse anymore.. they've lost more talent than Gainax over the last year... see MAPPA for starters.

If the PV is real (and I doubt it isn't because it would be pretty bad taste for Key to perform a joke like this, and they usually announce things on the first april) I'm delighted. I don't like that they seem to include Saya though since that means that they possibly would include ex routes and I can't see how they would have time to cover them.

But if they only include Saya as a character and not the routes I guess thats fine.

Oh right.

I'm going to guess this is april fool's,it's weird to have a trailer without a formal announcement.

I really hate when they release stuff on April Fool's Day, because you can't tell which is part of the joke and which is real (especially since Key ALWAYS does this). It's a well-animated joke, I'll admit, but let's just wait for the official announcement on April 8 (I think) for official confirmation.

I guess it is a April Fools joke because it's too beautiful to be true and this masked Riki (?) at the end of the trailer
but Visual Arts posted information about anime on 31.03, not on 1st April so maybe this is not a joke after all

Yes, that definitely did not look like KyoAni or P.A. Works, if legit. It's generic enough and looks decent enough to be A-1, maybe - but my first thought from the look was "JC Staff".

Well then I'm left guessing at the studio,doesn't look like P.A works backrounds,doesn't look like Kyoani either.

No aniplex so can't be A-1 and White Fox is busy.

To be frank it looks like something out of AIC

AHAHAHA that's what I first thought too. The shading looks flat, the designs were generisized, it has a faded feel. . .

Then again this could be an April fools joke.
