Little Busters “Needs 200 Episodes”


Little Busters fans are alternately despairing and rejoicing to learn that JC Staff think Little Busters could be Bleached out into a full 200 episode run…

From an interview with Michiru Shimada, one of the production staff at JC Staff:

After a first run through of the game I thought 100 episodes might be required to get everything in, but if we were thorough 200 would be necessary. If you make it into an anime, that’s just how much volume it has.

Of course, at some point it will not be possible to continue, so there still needs to be a cut-off… though unfortunately we’ll be leaving plenty of scenes fans will really want to see.


Amongst fans familiar with the original, it seems 100 might be regarded as pushing it, and even a 36 episode run could cover it reasonably well – although how many episodes it will actually get probably has rather more to do with how long it can inexpensively dragged out whilst still selling well.

    Even if they do all the routes + refrain + ectasy routes + kud wafter i think they wouldn't need more than 100 episodes.

    i would say the best thing to do would be something like how yosuga no sora did it. start with episode 1 and then have a bunch of episodes 2-13

    Not going to happen. They'll just drop it or pass it to another studio like Hayate no Gotoku, which in turn will kill it.

    Let's Hope when they drop it to other Studio is KyoAni

    Though I doubt KyoAni will take it.....
    The alternate is , KyoAni make it from the beginning again.

    Just like Full Metal Alchemist.

    They could at least translate it properly. He's obviously being sarcastic, just hyping up how much "real material" is involved. Also, it's not "unfortunately we'll be leaving scenes out people really want to see", it's "it's unfortunate (that there has to be a cut off), but we feel we've left in the scenes people really want to see". Practice your Japanese before translating.

    Also, the 100/200 thing was for doing every single route in full, which was conveniently left out.

    90 episodes seems good enough for this anime

    Well clannad was 52 episodes and the little busters vn is longer than the clannad one in terms of text content so I could see it going over 50+ but beyond 100 is probably a bit much.

    Before, the anime were very long, it was for the best but now with the habit of 13 or 24 anime long, you can't do something correct like that, but you can't still air it during the day... It's a fucking dilemna

    The director said that jokingly, it won't be longer than 30 episodes.

    Still, more episodes needs to be dedicated to Refrain.

    Also, I'd hope those who haven't play the VN and still watches this would just shut up and drop it, nobody wants retarded uninformed opinions.

    we are commenting the ANIME not the VN. Not our fault if they made that blonde girl more stupid than a retard! The only reasons i continue to watch it is because Rin Natsume is funny and because friends who played the game suggested it to me. I gotta admit that opening was awesome though .

    Did you just call the "blonde girl" that is named Kamikita Komari stupid? you're stupid. Beyond stupid. Go play the VN, play her arc and say that again. She is one of the greatest characters in the game/anime and you will acknowledge that, fool.

    Never know or understand a good compelling character at all. Great job. Her voice is perfect as well, lol /no tolerance

    Please do by all means. You have no tolerance. She is far from an annoying bitch, noobs.

    seen the chara's history... So? she isn't the only one to who this happened. I could understand the part about trauma but i don't think it could bring to idiocy....Even the girl from koi to senkyo to chocolate had about the same trauma but she was not that stupid....Sorry to tell you but this is called being objective not noob. People always mock others' favourite chara and when someone find a flaw in theirs they get angry.....

    @20:41 - But you don't seem to understand- she isn't stupid. Clumsy? yes, but an idiot? stupid? nope. Then it some how relates to her voice? lol. I could argue Rin's just as bad or any other character in that way.

    sorry to tell you but the one speaking about the voice was another one....and if you say clumsy here is the definition :Lacking physical coordination, skill, or grace
    i am talking about her behaviour so stop avoiding it using words like trauma or airhead....

    agreed, that OP theme is damn amazing, Best I've heard since, but not superior, to Air's OP.

    Played that damn OP like 6 times when i first heard it in episode 1... that be good!

    I think 36-52 would be enough if they can't do it for 26 episodes. Though I'm glad that it's not 1-cour bullshit.

    i would enjoy 100 or 200 episodes, but seems unlikely since its not a battle manga... 52eps at the most idsay.

    52 eps of this shit? Hell 13eps is all this thing deserves and even that's pushing it a bit too far.
