In July 2007, KEY and Visual Art’s released their visual novel Little Busters! to the Japanese market and has since then been released over several different consoles for both All-ages and 18+ Editions. Previous anime adaptations of KEY titles include Air, Kanon and Clannad, all three of which seem to have been well received by anime fans (and myself), and there has been much word over the years on if Little Busters would follow them with its own anime adaptation.
In a commercial during the 34th webradio@DengekiBunko episode for the Spring 2012 issue of Dengeki VisualArts Magazine, it was revealed that Little Busters would indeed be receiving an anime adaptation. Unfortunately I cannot link you to the episode as of yet, as they seem to have pulled it from their website – perhaps pending an official announcement over the next couple of days.
For those who are curious as to what a KEY anime experience is like, here are reviews to series based on their titles or have some part to do with their team members:
