Little Busters! Refrain Now Available in North America


Covering the Kurugaya and Rin arcs in addition to concluding with the “Refrain” chapter, Little Busters! Refrain comprises of the final 13-episodes of J.C. Staff’s anime adaptation of KEY’s renown Little Busters! visual novel.

After originally airing in Japan during late-2013, anime fans in North America are from today able to enjoy these episodes on DVD and Blu-ray kudos of anime publisher Sentai Filmworks. As with the first 26-episode season which was split over two volumes, this collection features a dual-audio (English / Japanese) dubbing.

Unfortunately, neither the eight Little Busters! EX chapters or OVA episode “I’ll Protect the Saito of the World!” (Sore wa Totsuzen Yatte Kita // それは突然やってきた) will be available in this release. I think it is safe to assume these will be localized and published at a later date.

Those residing in Australia and New Zealand have to wait until next month, with Hanabee Entertainment incorporating it as part of their February 2015 release schedule.

Riki Naoe and his teammates have finally formed a complete baseball team for the Little Busters. When they reunite, there’s a strange sense of deja vu as the personal mysteries and idiosyncrasies that have permeated the game coalesce into something unexpected. As the team members fall into their roles, the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place. Riki learns the secrets behind his narcolepsy and a stunning truth about this world will be revealed, one that will change everything.
