Little Busters!
« on: October 06, 2012, 05:44:24 PM »
1: i'm not sure what i was expecting. i'm having a very hard time paying attention to the story due to the horrible animation quality. i think i have to get over the fact that this is not KyoAni. i will keep watching, but only because i was told that this was one of the best Key stories made. J.C. can't mess up that badly, right?

Someone said this on MAL:

Little Budget!: The Animation

And I completely agree with it.

1: Typical key in introducing too many characters in the first episode haha.

I liked it though, decent adaption of the source material.

This wasn't a low budget affair.  It's just inside J.C. Staff's general art style.  They generally don't go with super detailed backgrounds and for smoother animation.  That's about what we got here.

Apparently it'll be "hard" to fit all of the main story line in 26 episodes.  Which raises a question of how damn long the VN takes to beat.  Anyway, it was a solid opening episode.  It'll be interesting to see where this goes.

uh 20-30 hours..it's not really that long.

I think they can easily do it as long as they skip most of the baseball stuff that isn't very important.

Animation quality is perfectly fine. It's not outstanding, it's not Kyoani, but honestly what would you expect? It's definitely above average. There is no budget issues. This isn't Muv Luv Total Quality.

Its 50 hours+. Longer than Clannad.

I believe that's only the EX version and if you include play time for all the mini games. Text wise it's not as big.

I laughed pretty hard at "Total Quality" for all the wrong reasons.

In the script size and quantity of words, Little Busters wins in both cases.

Once again, that's only the EX version (probably because the Saya path is long or something).

I'd say the plot is only slightly longer than Kanon.

1:

Seeing how I had no knowledge of the VN before hand (aside from it being from Key,) it was pretty cool when the characters just spontaneously decided to form a baseball team. I'm definitely looking forward to this series.

Where it is said that it is only in the EX version?

 The total word count in Ecstasy exceeds that of Clannad by about 4,000 words, making it Key's longest work, and carries so much data that Ecstasy was released on two DVDs instead of one for the original release.

I like the look of this somewhat, but the characters are lovably retarded.

Well, I'll see.

I'll be blunt:  if I didn't know this was a work by Key, I'd have turned this off halfway through the first episode.  Is it just the first episode and am I probably not thinking clearly?  Yep.  Doesn't change that this first episode felt stupid as hell.  And, yes, there is something missing from any Key work not being done by Kyoto Animation.  It will be unfair to JC Staff, but I can't help feeling that way.

Meh.  This is why I don't like hype, dammit.
I'm just like you, only smarterô.
