It has only been 5 months since the conclusion of the first season, but today the official site for the Little Busters! anime project announced that a second follow-up project is in the works called Little Busters! EX. Assuming that this is to be the anime adaptation of Little Busters! Ecstacy, then it will be a retelling of Key’s Little Busters! visual novel with added adult scenes and some modified story elements. It seems likely that this is the case when you take into account the announcement banner which features Kanata Futaki and Sasami Sasasegawa who are only really featured prominently in the Ecstacy storyline.
His family torn apart by the death of his parents, Riki Naoe is left with nowhere to turn until a group of kids called the Little Busters convince him to join their group. Causing havoc in their city, they roam the streets as a force for justice, pretending to vanquish evil and ne’er-do-wells. Now, as friends in highschool they have long since stopped pretending to be superheroes and focus their energy on recruiting new members to the Little Busters and forming their own baseball team. But one day they start receiving strange letters from a cat and it seems that maybe they might need to fight for justice after all!
Little Busters! Refrain will begin airing in the upcoming anime season starting this October. It is just one of many awesome visual novels adapted into anime over the years.

As of yet there has not been a date set for the release of Little Busters! EX, but when there has been you’ll hear about it in our Anime News section.
