Little Busters! Refrain Anime's Promo Features New Theme Song
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for the Little Busters! Refrain anime began streaming a promotional video for the anime on Thursday. The promotional video features the anime's “Boys be Smile” opening theme by Suzuyu. The phrases in the video read, “Very soon, this dream will come to an end,” and “I wonder... If we will be split up here,” as well as “Everything that was stopped for so long... Starts here now.”
Director Yoshiki Yamakawa and assistant director Chikara Sakurai will be directing the anime at animation studio J.C. Staff from scripts by Michiru Shimada. In addition, Haruko Iizuka is adapting Itaru Hinoue and Na-Ga's original character designs for the anime. The original cast for the first season of Little Busters! will be returning to voice their roles, with the exception of Mio, whose original voice actress from the visual novels will be returning to voice her.
The final episode of the original Little Busters! television anime series ended in April with a teaser video for Little Busters! Refrain. "Refrain" is the name of the last scenario that is unlocked when players complete the six heroines' scenarios in Key's original Little Busters! visual novel.
Key, an adult game brand of Visual Art's, released the original romance adventure game for personal computers in 2007, and it has since been ported to the PlayStation 2, PSP, and PS Vita platforms.
The anime will premiere on Japanese television in October.
Update: Ending is not featured in the promo. Thanks, rizuchan.
