While this announcement comes as no surprise at all (given the company has given the first season an English dub and everything), North American anime publisher Sentai Filmworks have announced their acquisition of Little Busters! Refrain, the follow-up and concluding season in the Little Busters! anime adaptation. It is however not clear if the publisher have acquired the rights to the bonus “Little Busters! EX” anime episodes that are set to be bundled in with the Blu-ray and DVD volumes of Refrain in Japan next year.
Whatever the case you can expect a home video release of Refrain to follow next year.
Riki Naoe and his teammates have finally managed their goal of forming a complete baseball team for the Little Busters. Or have they, in fact re-united one? All along there has been something odd going on, a strange sense of déjà vu, and even as the Little Busters finally join together to become a working whole, the personal mysteries and idiosyncrasies that have permeated the school and games slowly begin to coalesce into something unexpected. For as the team falls into their roles, the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place. And as Riki begins to learn the secrets behind his narcolepsy, a stunning truth is about to be revealed, one that will change everything. Will the game continue into extra innings, or will it end in sudden death? Riki made the team and his teammates came, but the next pitch may throw everyone in LITTLE BUSTERS! REFRAIN!
