Episode 1 of Little Busters: Refrain just aired! This thread is for discussing what just went down!

We start off with the pancake party. What confused me a little was that the males of the group stated that they lost the baseball game, but I could've sworn they wound up winning by the end of the first series. Not that the game was truly that important when it comes to the big picture but it threw me off a tiny bit.

Of course the highlight of the episode was the start of the Kurugaya route. For those that played the visual novel, one core difference in everyone's routes vs. the Visual Novel was that the stories personally revolved around Riki in the visual novels while the anime routes involved the entire group in their affairs. To me that made routes like Haruka & Kud's less enjoyable in the anime, but for Kurugaya, it was very fitting. It even had more impact on me when Kud & Komari were the ones getting bullied.

And of course every scene that followed was pretty golden. We have Mutsu, the meek gal of that minor trio introduced in all her cuteness. Then there's the bat crazy student that Kurugaya snapped on. Her wicked expressions were very impressive, and was a large step above the first season from that teaser alone! I was going to be excited for Refrain unconditionally, but I believe that JC Staff truly stepped up their game! What do you guys think?

I think I know why they are saying they lost the game, but I'm not ready to say why yet. At least I know how I would write this story if it were me.

Wow, I'm dumb. Now that I think about it, it was obvious.

It was an awesome episode 1. I am very interested on how the rest of the VN will be adapted. So far so good though!

Now that I think of it, I wonder what they'll do with Kud Wafter.

I don't know much about that game, but I'd think it's likely to see a 'Rewrite' adaptation before a game like that.
