Little Busters!: Refrain

You know, I have to be honest and just say that I never really cared for Little Busters. I have seen a couple of season one’s episodes before I got bored and dropped it. I imagine that I’ll do the same with season two. It just doesn’t interest me.

Little Busters! RefrainThe artwork is still very much the same. They focus a lot on the characters by making them appear as cute and funny as possible. I often thought that they tried way too hard with all of that.

Unfortunately, it’s a free-spirited story, and I’m just not a big fan of such a thing. You basically follow a group of teenage kids around and watch them as their lives go on and on. Nothing really that special.

I have no idea how to recommend this. I’m just not a fan of this sort of thing. Comedy fans will probably give this a shot. It’s an average show for your average viewer. Just give the first episode a chance and see what you think, but make sure you watch season one first.

Plot Summary: When tragedy struck Riki Naoe as a child, he was rescued from grief over his parent’s deaths when four other kids “recruited” him for their group—the “Little Busters.” Now in high school, Riki and the other Busters are still fast friends, and though their vision of being heroes for justice may have faded, they’d still do anything for each other. Which is why Riki is now on TWO special missions. The not so secret one: recruiting new members so the Busters can form a baseball team. Preferably FEMALE recruits, as the current dude/babe ratio is an inconvenient 4 to 1. The OTHER mission, though… That’s the strange one. Because Riki and Rin, the group’s singular girl, are receiving odd messages, delivered by cats, concerning the existence of a “secret world” and assigning them tasks they have to complete. Were their youthful dreams of being crusaders not so fanciful after all? Or is there something even more vital at stake? Between steeling his courage to talk to girls, dealing with his own narcolepsy and facing his feelings concerning Rin, Riki may just need the strength of a superhero to solve the ultimate mystery of the Little Busters!
