Little Busters!

Hello! Mishi is here! Today I want to introduce you guys to this anime “Little Busters! (リトルバスターズ!)”. It is an anime that has been popular for years. I want to show you the reason why this anime has been big in this world! Let’s take a look at the story first! ε=(ノ゚Д゚)ノ

 

Story

Riki Naoe is the main character who is a high school student. When he was a child, he lost his parents. That caused him to shut himself off but his childhood friends helped him break out of his shell. His childhood friends go to the same school and live in a dorm of the school. One day, to have a good memory of high school life, Riki suggests to his childhood friends that they do something together like they used to. Kyosuke who is one of Riki’s childhood friends suggested making a baseball team is called Little Busters!

The reason for the name Little Busters is because when they were children, they used to name themselves Little Busters. They used to make something look like a bad guy, and they would punish them for justice as child’s play. Kyosuke is eldest out of all and is ready to graduate from school. Riki doesn’t want to lose his happy life, and he wishes, this time, would last forever. That is why Riki suggested doing something so that they could have good memories. Riki and his childhood friends will collect members for their baseball team. But…… this world is ………..

My review

 

Little Busters Recommendation Chart

This anime is originally from a game. I haven’t played this game before but you can enjoy watching it without playing the game. I love how they made the story. There are 10 characters in this anime and each character has an episode so you can really get to know them. Each character has their own personality and that will make you sympathize with them. I am sure that many episodes will make you move! Especially if you find your favorite character, you will not be able to watch this anime without having something to wipe your tears! 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゜。 But until the second season, the core of story won’t move much so I don’t want you to get bored until the story will start to move! The first season is like a prologue for the second season! So pinky promise! (*^-°)v

I love the opening song and the ending song so much! All of the music on this anime supports all of the scenes so good and sometimes helps you to get emotional. I think it is well done. Alicemagic – Rita is my all-time favorite song. Every time I listen to this song, it almost makes me cry! I am not going to tell the whole story because I want you guys to enjoy watching each anime I introduce but It makes me sad! You know what I am talking about if you have watched this already right? You really can’t imagine how the story goes later on. I hope I’m torturing you to want to watch it! (*^ー゚)b I think it is worthy of watching this anime, and hopefully, you will have a chance to watch Little Busters!
