Couldn’t get this post up yesterday because I was at a family Christmas Party (which doubled as a birthday party for my little sister, which is why I went). Strange seeing my cousins/nieces unwrapping their presents on the 23rd. 😛
Gonna get Day 11 up later today because today is technically Day 11… and I’d be bothered if I broke the flow of these and decide to end it on the 26th.
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Well it would seem all self-control has been lost. I’m not talking about “Rin about throwing a baseball at Masato-tier” lack of self-control, no I’m talking about the level of self-control one must lack in order to do it the way the anime showed it (launching the poor Master of Muscle several feet). Or rather, the self-control was lost a few weeks ago, November 12 to be exact. I feel like a picture is worth a thousand words, however, especially when the picture is actually just more words, but nevertheless, I present to you the following.

Finally, the anime I’ve been waiting for, well, forever! I’ve been a bit sketchy about it not being done by KyoAni, who are pretty much the only company that has ever done VN adaptations right. But I’ve decided to give J.C. Staff the benefit of an open mind, and so I’m going into this first episode with absolutely no bias.
Well, you can keep your lack of bias because J.C. Staff gives me convulsions. I don’t even know how they tricked me into trusting them and getting excited for this adaptation. If they screw it up I’m going to lose it.
My own excitement will kill me here, I swear. And it’s not like I can even pretend to not have a bias towards the visual novel. Look at my damn name. Either way, I have put down the torch and pitchforks and encourage everyone to do the same for now. We’ll mass the swarm later.

Wafu~ the anime is currently in the works according to Dengeki Bunko’s 34th episode of their web radio show. This is news I found out last night while watching Evangelion with my friends. Needless to say, I was ecstatic.
Then I wondered if Kyoto Animation was going to be behind the adaptation. Several seasons have went by with me anticipating another one of Key Visual Art’s works being translated into anime form – obviously this meant several seasons of disappointment as I love Kyoto Animation’s visual novel adaptations. Key probably loved them too considering how long it took for a popular VN like Little Busters! to have an anime announced. As a player of visual novels myself, I will say that KyoAni is one of the best when it comes to doing a VN anime right.
But not to my surprise, Kyoto Animation is not in charge of the Little Busters! anime whatsoever. I guess several seasons of disappointment turned out to be a good shock absorber.
Let’s hope that the studio (currently unknown) that’s in charge of the Little Busters! anime knows what it’s doing and will create a good anime out of it. While I’m disappointed that it didn’t end up being in the hands of the studio I have 100% faith in when it comes to visual novel adaptations, what matters the most is that the studio it is in the hands of knows what it’s doing. Preferably not J.C.Staff or Toei.
