According to Dengeki Visual Arts magazine, President of Visual Arts, Baba Takahiro has revealed that he asked animation studio Kyoto Animation to produce upcoming anime adaptation of Key’s visual novel, Little Busters!.

Unfortunately, KyoAni was “too busy” working with other visual novels that Baba and Visual Arts cannot wait until it was picked up by another animation studio JC Staff.

Baba further announced that Japanese singer Riko Hirai will be singing “Little Buster” and  “Alicemagic” as anime series’ opening and ending theme songs, respectively.  Known as Rita, she originally performed the opening theme song of Little Buster game.

  1. Hey! Great post! Thanks for the update! They said they are “too busy”?!?!…come on! Anywho, I recently wrote a manga one-shot myself called “Stelle”. It plays on the classical character Dante Aligheri and his encounters in the inferno during the great poem the Devine Comedy. I have it up for sell on Amazon…but, just for feedback, I’d love to get you a downloadable copy via email for you to review!!! If you could/want to do this, please let me know as it could help greatly in my quest for manga/anime/graphic novel dominance! Thanks! cheers!
