Little Busters - Anime Spoilers & Speculation (for experienced Little Busters only)

This thread is for the experienced Little Busters viewer (i.e. those of you who are familiar with potentially all the light novels / manga), its purpose is to allow free discussion of theories and speculation over the Little Busters anime series, it therefore will contain unmarked spoilers. If you are not familiar with the Little Busters visual novel, then do not read this thread unless you want to be spoiled (use the Speculation & Theories thread instead).

Since posters are expected to be familiar with the visual novels, there is no real need for spoiler tags, but feel free to include them if you so wish.

Adding a Spoiler tag:
Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms.
Make sure that you include a title that clearly identifies the specific source of the spoiler!

Finally, please remain on-topic and do not use this thread if it's just discussion about the current or previous anime episodes. Also remember that this isn't a light novel / manga discussion thread, if you do want to discuss the light novel then please use the existing Little Busters Game thread.

This may be difficult, but I think some distinction between Little Busters players and Little Busters EX players might be necessary. The current english translation doesn't include EX, so most people who have played the game and want to compare it to the Anime won't necessarily want to be spoiled about the EX routes.

I don't really have a solution, just identifying the problem.

Indeed, personally I would like that, though I'm not forcing. I played LB! about 5 years ago and yet I STILL haven't finished EX, despite my ability in doing so if I want to. Mostly because I was traumatized with that horrible bgm when the H-scenes played out...sigh

Anyways, currently my biggest anticipation is how or if Kyousuke's BBS posts will somehow make it into the anime. Probably the short skits during next ep previews? Aaaand, the million dollars question: how will they handle the repetitions?

Pretty sure the BBS posts have been confirmed to be included in some form.
As for the repetitions... Only time will tell.

Watching the op...im kinda scared they might cram refrain in the last episode and use the normal ending with the true ending squeezed in as a OVA ala persona four the animation. But clannads op had ushio so maybe im just overreacting...

When you say true ending versus normal ending, are you talking about Riki proposing to Rin versus not proposing to her?

Based on that too, I can easily conclude that...

After Komari's Arc, we'll have Mio's Arc next.

No when i say normal ending i mean
Spoiler for Major little busters spoilers:

@ronelm yeah that seems about right. I think they will go komari > mio > haruka > kurugaya > kud > rin2 > refrain but theres a 50% chance they might just do kud then kurugaya.

I hope that they include the true ending, since it'd feel unfinished if they just left it with

As far as an OVA goes, I'd rather that they make it about the Little Busters' trip to the beach at the end, or on an EX route or two.

With all honestly, I really hope they don't plan to finish everything in 2-cour. That would just be cruel. But... how could it end though... I'm curious.

Im 99.99% sure theres going to be a ova since each BD/dvd volume will have 3 episodes each and since 9 have been soliticated there needs to be a episode 27 to fill the final BDs episode amount. And i heard that a OVA was mentioned either on the radio show or the pre screening of episode 1. Though whether its the true refrain ending or the beach remains to be seen. That is if they plan to do everything in two cours.

I'd prefer they don't pick any ending. LB has plenty of stuff to fill 26 or 12 episodes. We can leave the teary stuff for season two, and Saya's stuff for season three.

I thought the story was better without that "true" ending...

Yeah, why not abandon every detail that doesn't work well in an anime? Why bother adapting anything properly?
This is going to sell regardless of how good or bad it is, so why should the studio put in any effort at all?

Nice atmosphere in the ED, just realized it's the morning of the last...

Also looks like they're doing Sasami's route, as there are key visuals from her route on the litbus homepage.
