On Monday May 29, Anime Limited will release its Blu-ray/DVD Collector's Edition of Tokyo Marble Chocolate. Directed by Naoyoshi Shiotani (Psycho-Pass) and animated by Production I.G, the two-part OAV is a romantic comedy. Each part tells the same story about a hapless Tokyo couple from a different point of view; one episode takes the viewpoint of the man and the the other episode takes the woman's viewpoint.

However, peace for the fun-loving students would not last forever. As Riki Naoe learns the truth behind his narcolepsy and the other mysteries around campus, he realizes that the dream must come to an end, and everything that had stopped starts to move.'
Following on from Little Busters!, Little Busters! Refrain adapts up the final scenario in Key's romance adventure visual novel of the same name.
