As a child, Riki Naoe shut himself from the world, thanks to a diagnosis of narcolepsy following the tragic deaths of his parents. However, Riki is saved when, one fateful day, a boy named Kyousuke recruits him into a team who call themselves the Little Busters. Accompanied by Masato, Kengo, and Rin, these misfits spend their childhood fighting evil and enjoying their youth. Years pass, and even in high school, the well-knit teammates remain together. Kyousuke decides to re-ignite the Little Busters by forming a baseball team as it will be his last school year with them. They have a problem though: there aren't enough members! The tables have turned, for it is now Riki's turn to reach out and recruit new friends into the Little Busters, just like Kyousuke had once done for him. Then, an omen surfaces—Rin finds a strange letter attached to her cat, assigning them the duty of uncovering the "secret of this world" by completing specific tasks. Just what is this secret, and why is it being hidden? It's up to the Little Busters to find out!

Excellent mix of comedy and feels. I was very emotionally invested in this and it even got me rethinking my life.


A group of friends helping each other out, here deep lies hidden good values yet to be revealed just by watching together with morality.


The beginning of one of the greatest shows of all time. It’s rare to see such a large cast all be amazing and the story only begins here <3 [/tie_slide][tie_slide] Smoothnoseman

The main guy sounds like a girl.


I personally loved this show. It was an anime that made you feel better about the world and what you are facing, through a group of friends.


Decent throughout, with some highlights for me in Mio’s arc, but primarily a build-up for the second season.


Unexpectedly good, with a lot of emotion. No romance though, which is kinda of a bummer
