A new television commercial is now airing in Japan for the anime adaptation of Key's Little Busters! visual novel. This ad has two of the main character Riki's childhood friends narrating: Nobutoshi Canna as the grunting, muscle-bound but dimwitted Little Busters member Masato as well as Yusei Oda as fellow member/rival and kendo master Kengo.
Most of the original game's cast members are reprising their roles for the anime, although Yui 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, since it is advertising the series on a different channel, BS11).
