Sentai Filmworks Licenses "Little Busters! Refrain" Anime

Series available digitally soon, home video to follow in 2014

Earlier today Sentai Filmworks announced the acquisition of Little Busters! follow-up Little Busters! Refrain, with plans to release it digitally soon and on home video in 2014.


Refrain sees the cast and staff of the first season returning, including director Yoshiki Yamakawa—who also helmed Maid Sama! and Kill Me Baby—and Michiru Shimada (Shugo Chara!) on series composition.


The synopsis from Sentai's press release:

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!
