Seems like Little Busters's expansion had some small but significant additions. It's kinda like Starcraft: Brood War! Saya can be like the Dark Templar (really cool new flashy type who's in the shadows), Kanata the Corsair (cool personality and serves as support) and Sasami is like the Devourer (Nobody gives a fuck).

Whoops, the Angel Beats vibes started to make me to randomly create Starcraft references... please ignore me
Your so great I love your references Saya is the favorite in polls from LB.

What do you mean it's nothing special? It's Kanata! Yes!

EDIT: How popular is Kanata anyways? I haven't followed forum threads or news regarding Little Busters in a long time.

Kanata isn't so popular among English fandom mostly because people haven't play EX and they have only seen her nasty side in Haruka's route.
She's more popular among Japanese(from my personal experience,she's already quiet well-liked even before EX release) and rank 10th in the last Key's character poll.
So in term of popularity in Little Busters!,she only lost to Saya,Kud,Kyosuke,Rin and beat everyone else.

Has it been confirmed that the OP for the EX series will be the Little Busters song Ecstasy version? It looks like it judging from the PVs.

Oh I remember popularity polls like that; how does it go in general?

Yea, I seem to find it odd that Saya would be so popular given she only appears in an expansion. Given her tendency to be fighting at night or something I'd imagine she's along the lines of the heroine Little Busters needs, but not the one it deserves or something...

Also is the theme song slightly remixed in that trailer?

Really? I never understood why so many people hated her. It was clear the moment she helped Kud with the room, that she is not as bad as everyone might think. Then there also were those small dialogues between her and Riki which indicated that she was not bad.

And then there was her confession in Haruka's route... I did not play EX and have no idea what her route is about but that confession and several other scenes in between were enough for me to feel bad for her more than for Haruka.

Found the poll. Klashikari posted the top ten.

Characters Ranking
01) Sakagami Tomoyo (Clannad / Tomoyo After): 4160 points
02) Furukawa Nagisa (Clannad): 3822 points
03) Tokido Saya (Little Busters! Ecstasy):3315 points
04) Kamio Misuzu (Air): 2938 points
05) Fujibayashi Kyou (Clannad):2782 points
06) Noumi Kudryavka (Little Busters!): 2652 points
07) Natsume Kyousuke(Little Busters!):2392 points
08) Ibuki Fuuko (Clannad): 1833 points
09) Natsume Rin (Little Busters!): 1703 points
10) Futaki Kanata (Little Busters! Ecstasy): 1534 points I was sad to see no Kanon love in the poll. But i know Mai is the favorite there.

Yes the EX opening is slightly different, good ears!

A lot of people think her bad behaviors to Haruka were overdone and unnecessary. And to this day,there are still some people holding grudge for bench-kun LoL

She acted the way she acted because they told her they would murder Haruka if she didn't act that way. I haven't seen all that many signs of people holding it against her. For that matter, there's plenty of fanart out there for her, so she doesn't really seem to be unpopular.

I was just half joking about the bench but yeah,there are people who doesn't like what she did to bench-kun(mostly VN players because it's hard to feel anything for bench-kun in the anime).

Fanart =/= popularity.

And like i said,she is quiet popular in Japan (where her popularity mean something). So if you ask me if overall she's unpopular or not,I'd say no but the English fandom just don't share the shame amount of love for her like the Japanese fans.
Perhaps EX anime can change that when people see her arc (I doubt so) .

I'm guessing that poll is old, since it has no Angel Beats. I'd fully expect Yuri to replace Saya, if nothing else, since they seem to be similar characters (right down to VA). And then there's Kanade who's just... somehow insanely popular.

The major problem is that the anime portrayed Kanata's actions in a very less favorable light (for instance, the identity switch for the cakes made people think she wanted to steal Riki, whereas she tried to made Riki give up for real in the game).

Yuri and Saya are quite different, and Yuri is more or less "fine" over there, whereas Saya is the major LB heroine, even beating Kudo (which is a feat by itself when you consider how Kudo is insanely popular).

She also used the identity switch a couple of times to try to improve Haruka's image around the school in the game, by doing some non-delinquent type stuff while posing as Haruka, to try to quell some of the bad rumors that were going around about Haruka at that point.

It's kind of tricky. The anime inserted more blatant "hey, she's not really as bad as she's acting" clues than the game, while the game had several more subtle clues to that effect that you could miss if you weren't careful.

Did you play her route? Becase if not, then I don't think you have much right to say that... Saya is one of the most popular heroines in Little Busters. That is already regarded as one of the best characters ever by Key. It's her story, her character, her situation, and her very own ending song that makes her so popular. I still frequent niconico and all I can say is: Forget Saya, I don't think I can even see Yuri even beating Kud, Fuuko, or Kanade right now... Only time will tell when the Angel Beats visual novel is realeased that will give more expansion to her story. Also Kanade's popularity is on the same level as Fuuko's and Rin's. Welp I'm just basing this on what I witness everyday, so I can be wrong since I can't witness everything.

ps; I'm only viewing this at a eastern fanbase standpoint, not a foreign/western one.

After looking at the character result a few times,I realized both Maeda's most favorite Key girls are also the 2 most popular heroines in their respective show.

Just discovered the Little Busters EX 4koma. Has anybody read it, and is it a decent adaptation of the Visual Novel? Considering reading it before the Anime airs.

4-koma is a what-if comedy manga that isn't really follow the VN,I don't think it gonna spoil anything for EX.

Oh, can I hope for EX to portray any of that?

Just curious but what exactly does Kanata's route cover? Is it her confession form Haruka's route but in more detail?

Feel free to PM if it is a spoiler.
