Little Busters! Anime's Ads Aired Featuring Natsume Siblings
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Two new television commercials are currently airing in Japan for the anime adaptation of Key's Little Busters! visual novel. The first commercial features narration from Kyōsuke Natsume's character as voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa, and the second commercial features narration from Rin Natsume's character, as voiced by Tomoe Tamiyasu. A previous commercial featuring narration by Yui Horie as the male protagonist Riki Naoe aired last week.
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 on March 22.
The anime series will premiere in Japan on October 6 (the commercial above notes a start date of October 12 as it is advertising the series airing on a different channel).
