A television commercial began airing in Japan for the anime adaptation of Key's Little Busters! visual novel. The commercial features the narration of the male protagonist Riki Naoe, as played by voice actress Yui Horie.
Most of the original game's cast members are reprising their roles for the anime, although Horie and Sora Tokui join the cast as Riki and the recast role of Sasami Sasasegawa, respectively. In addition, Yuiko Tatsumi is replacing Shiho Kawaragi in the role of Mio Nishizono after Kawaragi announced last month that she is pregnant.
Key, an adult game brand of Visual Art's, released the original romance adventure game for personal computers in 2007, and the game has since been ported to the PlayStation 2 and PSP platforms. The Japanese software company Prototype just released the PS Vita version (pictured right) on March 22.
The anime series will premiere in Japan on October 6.
