Let's Play Little Busters!

Prologue

Hello fellow readers! I've decided to do a written Let's Play of a game called "Little Busters!". I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I will ;)

But first, what exactly is Little Busters!? It's a Japanese visual novel that was never released outside of Japan. It's made by Key and is often considered their signature work - not necessarily their best, but if you wanted to describe what Key is, you would just point to Little Busters! and there you go. It was released in 2007.

And why do I want to Let's Play it? Simple: It has one of my absolute favorite casts of characters and storyline to date. I just want to share this experience with you. You may or may not have already seen the recent anime adaptation. If so, I would greatly appreciate your attention, as I do consider the original visual novel to be quite a bit superior to the adaptation - you may end up very much enjoying this LP! And if you have never heard of Little Busters! before, but I did catch your interest if just slightly, well then, I strongly urge you to either stick with me, or read it by yourself. It's worth the time investment, most certainly.

Speaking of time investment, this LP will take quite some time. Little Busters! is often approximated at 50+ hours to complete and I will be taking screenshots of maybe the majority of lines in this game. Still, if you could take the time to follow me on this journey, that would be great.

This is a visual novel with choices. When they're only minor, I will mostly pick one and roll with it. For others, I will be asking you, the readers, to choose what path to take. Look forward to it^^

Next time we will be clicking that New Game button and get right into it. Enjoy - Little Busters!

Mio is the true love, and life. Where is that from anyways?

I forgot to post this before: the Main Menu music.
cikD4AvGuH4

So soothing... feels like a calm before the storm.

Well, without further ado, let's get started!

As the lights converge, our journey begins.




Chapter 1: General Route

I will be spoilering out all the parts of the LP so as to make navigating this thread a bit easier.


http://i.imgur.com/r5FreCZ.png

Sunday, May 13th. This is where we start. We take on the perspective on a boy called Naoe Riki, as a loud voice awakens him from sleep.


http://i.imgur.com/cD6BMlj.png http://i.imgur.com/ebuSEHy.png

Don't you just hate it when your roommate gets up in the middle of the night and runs off to fight for no apparent reason? Masato runs off and Riki follows him.

Music for this part: Mission Possible (But Difficult Task) (http://youtu.be/NqwUuQboE88)

Sure enough, there's a fight in the cafeteria. Masato is fighting Kengo - they're both Riki's childhood friends.


http://i.imgur.com/CNfypr2.png http://i.imgur.com/iTLJ3NT.png

Masato on the left, Kengo on the right. We have a bit of fighting, which is all the while commentated by a crowd of spectators.

http://i.imgur.com/pe8FDB0.png
http://i.imgur.com/prt6Lig.png

Seems likely. Whatever his cut may read, it seems to get a bit dangerous, so Riki tries to find a way to stop them. He doesn't just cut in, that would be too easy, instead he goes to find Kyousuke, who as we heard earlier, has just returned.
Kyousuke acts as a big brother of sorts to the three of them and he is supposed to mediate the fight. After a bit of persuasion by Riki, Kyousuke steps in.

http://i.imgur.com/tpHgh5q.png
http://i.imgur.com/aRjYuyh.png
http://i.imgur.com/rnrpPWP.png
http://i.imgur.com/BTIHj0Q.png

And so he comes up with a most elegant solution!

http://i.imgur.com/IEKRiJR.png
http://i.imgur.com/tbZAfeH.png
http://i.imgur.com/KvREuMb.png

I love this guy already.

The onlookers start throwing all sorts of random stuff into the ring. Kengo gets hold of a toy gun, while Masato... uh...

http://i.imgur.com/AnejXq5.png
http://i.imgur.com/4kfCSVB.png

Well this is gonna be fun. Battle Start!

http://i.imgur.com/IHKABgV.png

http://i.imgur.com/YWrVHH2.png

http://i.imgur.com/ucgUMBo.png http://i.imgur.com/yfajVBo.png


http://i.imgur.com/nHhZqdI.png http://i.imgur.com/r2mkbP5.png

...suddenly a loud yell interrupts the fight!

http://i.imgur.com/Ll0nCQV.png

Rin says to "stop bullying the weakling"! Of course, Masato and Kengo both instantly assume she meant the other, until Rin clarifies her statement.

http://i.imgur.com/ObqLvZr.png

Rin demands to know where Masato got it from, and it turns out Kyousuke tossed it into the ring. How nice of him. She takes the cat away. Masato demands a new cat to fight with, but Kengo quickly loses interest.

http://i.imgur.com/xdcvRlX.png http://i.imgur.com/sdhBx3D.png


Annnnnd...

http://i.imgur.com/bo0Oat5.png

http://i.imgur.com/V918qO8.png

Okay now those weapons just aren't fair. Rin has a three-section-staff and Masato is fighting with... a freaking eel pie.

The battle goes about as well for Masato as you'd expect.


http://i.imgur.com/Hk37rMt.png http://i.imgur.com/mSsTczf.png

http://i.imgur.com/EbprBzq.png http://i.imgur.com/FwIXvS0.png

Don't worry, he's not dead. Masato takes more abuse in this game than Homer does in the Simpsons.

Following the battle, Riki gets a bit nostalgic and tells about how he got to know his friends. Masato, Kengo, Kyousuke, Rin and himself, the five of them have been together for a long time.

http://i.imgur.com/3Tz0IIp.png
http://i.imgur.com/aC1FbjE.png
http://i.imgur.com/cAohh6Q.png

(He thought Rin was a boy at the time)
A young Kyousuke took Riki by his hand and dragged him along. When Riki asked who they were, he replied that they called themselves...

http://i.imgur.com/6AMpVZ1.png

What follows is a short story of how the five of them fought a beehive for no apparent reason whatsoever. On the verge of defeat, Masato covers his own body in honey and charges into the cloud of bees. Kyousuke vows not to forget Masato's sacrifice as he lights him on fire. Masato only barely survived.

If only...

May 14th

Music for this part: Waking Up In The Morning (http://youtu.be/SXc8O1z2qVc) (wow I actually posted the wrong track)

The next day, all is forgotten and Kengo, Masato, Riki and Kyousuke meet up in the cafeteria.

Rin comes along, with the cat from yesterday sitting on her shoulder.

http://i.imgur.com/I4mwnhC.png

Kyousuke frequently picks up stray cats and gives them to Rin as a present. And so this cat, too, ends up in her hands.

Kyousuke asks if she found a name for the cat yet, which Rin denies. So...

http://i.imgur.com/Nbr8aIj.png
http://i.imgur.com/qg5j6rr.png
http://i.imgur.com/RMcLFL4.png

Wonderful name choices, Kyousuke. Just wonderful.

Ah well, Rin likes the name Lennon and so that name sticks. And once more, Riki makes a wish.

http://i.imgur.com/sPHxhK4.png

The five of them walk back to school, and on the way they talk about Kyousuke's situation. He is a third-year, one year higher than the other four, and is already looking for a job. They reflect on the time they all spent together.

http://i.imgur.com/ACCtmr0.png

http://i.imgur.com/6eIAtPu.png
http://i.imgur.com/BqntIbv.png

http://i.imgur.com/48fpO9o.png

Realizing that Kyousuke has the same wish as him, Riki proposes that they "do something together, just like the old days." And so, Kyousuke comes up with an idea.

http://i.imgur.com/2SUqDpv.png

And as he picks up something from the ground, he announces...

http://i.imgur.com/YTaaS7F.png

Well, obviously, right? What else? Masato and Kengo react appropriately...
http://i.imgur.com/O4CTSSk.png http://i.imgur.com/XqklitV.png

But it's too late. There's no escaping Kyousuke's grand plans (which he came up with on the spot).

http://i.imgur.com/GG5wxqo.png

http://i.imgur.com/8n7bnUb.png

*cue opening movie*:

DLDI9QuukGU

I must say, I really like the opening of Little Busters! It gives off a nostalgic vibe and it's so upbeat and positive.

I do personally prefer the anime version of the song, however. I posted this in the "songs that always put you in a good mood" thread, too:

2o00UFfyIfQ

So that's it for the introduction. The Little Busters have been formed, we know half the main cast, and we're about 40 minutes into this game. Well we are still a bit too few people for a baseball team, but so far, things are looking pretty good.

Stay tuned for Part 2, where we will delve further into this baseball team idea.



(any feedback on layout and design of the LP is welcome)

Do you actually do anything in those battle sections? Or does it all play out automatically? x}

Chapter 1, Part 1 - Best girl makes an appearance. Masato is resigned to comic relief. Good times.

Are you implying that the best girl is anyone besides Yuiko Kurugaya? :3

Karifean
06-05-2014, 02:54 AM
The best girl is obviously Saigusa Haruka.

Oh and no, you don't actually do anything during those battle scenes. But I'll get more into that in probably the next part.



After Kyousuke's announcement in the last part, we find ourselves in the classroom. Riki had just been sleeping, apparently.

http://i.imgur.com/9iVP4SB.png
http://i.imgur.com/qrUXrFt.png
http://i.imgur.com/pOR6MHt.png
http://i.imgur.com/GrkEKqo.png

Sounds like a pretty serious disorder. Kinda scary. Imagine falling asleep in the middle of crossing a road. Thankfully, Masato offers Riki to talk to him about what's bothering him.

http://i.imgur.com/ytzDkhs.png

So nice and considerate of him.

Looks like Rin left the classroom, but she's on class duty and the blackboard hasn't been erased. A fellow classmate asks Riki to look for her, which we do.

Music for this part: Ring Ring Ring! (Rin's Theme) (http://youtu.be/3R_sAFn0qKQ)

http://i.imgur.com/yaHXK78.png
http://i.imgur.com/HGwMdTu.png

First choice in the game!

Might as well take this opportunity to talk about how I will handle choices in this Let's Play. For much of the common path, choices don't affect a lot, and with those that I feel have little bearing on the game as a whole, I will just go ahead and pick one. When we get to the character routes, and on some more meaningful choices in the common path, I will be asking you, the readers, to tell me what choice I should pick. Cool?

For this choice, I picked the top option. We get a tranquil scene of Rin playing with her cats.

http://i.imgur.com/gMVZPXq.png

I feel at peace.

After a while, Riki does call out to her (I think picking the bottom option just skips straight to this part) and tells her about her neglected duty. Rin doesn't really care, but Riki takes this opportunity to ask her about her social situation in class.

http://i.imgur.com/05Ad7Gn.png

Again Rin doesn't really care, but it does leave Riki thinking about it; how she is so overly shy that she hardly socializes at all. He thinks about how to make her open up to other people more, as the Little Busters won't be together forever.

http://i.imgur.com/zos4Cpe.png


http://i.imgur.com/yw4Ox2b.png

After classes are over, we head on over to Kyousuke for setting up baseball practice... although Riki and Masato are the only two actually motivated for it. Kengo is nowhere to be seen, but Masato manages to snatch Rin and drag her along, despite her lack of interest.

Music for this part: Boys Don't Cry (http://youtu.be/yNP31lu52XI) (Kyousuke's Theme)

http://i.imgur.com/VkCxR3u.png

I love this picture of Kyousuke. It really does make him seem... divine.

http://i.imgur.com/HcGO4qY.png

So... divine...

...

Ah, he stands up, and comes over.

http://i.imgur.com/yNoKKh1.png
http://i.imgur.com/RdF224U.png

.....

Well that was disillusioning. Baseball really was just a spur-of-the-moment idea.

Riki and Masato remind him of his baseball club idea and the band idea is quickly abandoned. We go over to the clubroom. Wait, we have a clubroom?

http://i.imgur.com/A8I4A3u.png
http://i.imgur.com/ovYBhxP.png

That's one way to get a clubroom, just hijack the room of the actual baseball club. We decide the room needs some cleaning and get right down to it.

When we're done, turns out Rin made her escape and left us three to play by ourselves. Just great. But it seems Kyousuke has something in mind...

http://i.imgur.com/1w0nJWj.png
http://i.imgur.com/tzOzJWy.png
http://i.imgur.com/B9U5DTH.png

http://i.imgur.com/ClxBrhh.png

Great reaction shot. But we go along with it.

http://i.imgur.com/0LWoZao.png
http://i.imgur.com/fQiMK0O.png

I think I know where this is going. Wait for it...

http://i.imgur.com/udLzI35.png

Uh huh, that sounds about right. Riki is loyal though, he doesn't run away like the other two. And so we spend the afternoon playing together...

The five meet up aain at dinnertime, where Kyousuke confronts the others about their lack of motivation.

http://i.imgur.com/6JV0SXa.png http://i.imgur.com/PtpAQv5.png

http://i.imgur.com/8YJGpRr.png http://i.imgur.com/LFVX9xI.png

I love the interactions between these guys.

http://i.imgur.com/Y6xZP01.png

http://i.imgur.com/tmM25im.png

Wait, he actually does have a reason? I didn't expect that.

http://i.imgur.com/j81np32.png

Now that is some awesome logic right there. You feel like you're losing your individuality? BASEBALL!

http://i.imgur.com/4LGeS2h.png

Masato doesn't quite follow, but that's because there's nothing to follow. And yet, Kyousuke is dead serious.

http://i.imgur.com/2a2kTjn.png

How can you not love this guy?

But believe it or not, Kyousuke actually has a reason for choosing baseball specifically. About as amazing of a reason as you expect from him at this point.

http://i.imgur.com/Uf4UGj3.png http://i.imgur.com/aju9s8S.png

http://i.imgur.com/gB790SN.png http://i.imgur.com/5FlWtl5.png

http://i.imgur.com/aBJbiU4.png

Kengo will have none of that. He gets up and leaves. Maybe he's just fed up with Kyousuke's non-logic.

http://i.imgur.com/w60Yj2W.png

http://i.imgur.com/sPMxqzk.png

I feel for Masato. Being completely pulled into Kyousuke's pace must be tiring. And yet...

http://i.imgur.com/fWKVkjq.png

Yeah.

Real talk, being friends with Kyousuke must be so much fun. There would hardly be a boring minute in your life with this guy around. Someone who knows just how to inject fun into any mundane task. I could imagine that kind of high school life being pretty awesome.

Back in the dorms, Riki and Masato reflect on the situation a little. Before long, Kyousuke appears and lets himself in.

After that little scene, Kyousuke brings up the subject of baseball again. And immediatly, he drops a bomb.

http://i.imgur.com/auUjLvG.png

...yeah. Not about a month until the match like in the anime, here it's gonna be in just a week's time. Obviously Masato isn't gonna stand for that.

http://i.imgur.com/NhCvO29.png

http://i.imgur.com/7mCeJHT.png

I'm sure he meant something by it. Like how important it is to get new members. Kengo in particular seems interested in how Kyousuke will find the remaining members.

http://i.imgur.com/0GsjDqa.png

http://i.imgur.com/W3QYpAV.png

http://i.imgur.com/7zmnCVR.png

Kengo saying they still need five members implies that he himself is not a part of the team. Someday he'll understand.

But Kyousuke is way ahead of Kengo - he's already devised a plan for Rin to go scout out new members! And he came quite prepared, actually.

http://i.imgur.com/1yR8GwI.png

http://i.imgur.com/R4EroGH.png
http://i.imgur.com/VgzluVs.png

Ah yes, the missions. There's no point to them, no rewards, no punishment for failure. Just a Mission Failed or Mission Complete at the end. It's just for fun, as many things in Little Busters! are.

Music for this part: http://youtu.be/NqwUuQboE88

http://i.imgur.com/TtgPaBO.png

She's getting way too into this.

For some reason the guys think it's a great idea if Rin didn't simply greet her potential recruits, but rather used some strange derivative of "Ohayou gozaimasu". You always have the option of letting her go ahead with the suggested greeting, or to stop her and move on to the next one.

Of course, if you let Rin go along with any one of the suggested greetings, it's shot down. You're supposed to keep saying no until Riki finally suggests just saying "Konban wa" (Good evening), but I went ahead and tried out all of them anyways.

So here's the different greetings Rin can use.

http://i.imgur.com/bW3sRBD.png
http://i.imgur.com/wgdQQU2.png
http://i.imgur.com/FVk7cvY.png
http://i.imgur.com/2CzPXWq.png

If you refuse to let her use any of them, she goes with Good evening. By the way, if you ever let her use one of these special greetings, she will actively refuse to use it on any subsequent playthroughs or if you just load a save from before. I found that out the hard way as I had to delete my savedata just to get these screenshots.

So Rin greets a random girl NORMALLY, and can actually initiate a conversation.

http://i.imgur.com/0e9xmUS.png
http://i.imgur.com/z9HOFjt.png
http://i.imgur.com/89vAuPu.png

She's way too honest, though.

http://i.imgur.com/g2TQyzo.png

Can't say I'm surprised. So we try again, but our new recruitee seems a little less... sympathetic.

http://i.imgur.com/hktrQdV.png
http://i.imgur.com/Zx0RJWU.png

Oh god, I know who this is. It's... it's...!

http://i.imgur.com/79gAnIn.png

Sasssassasasasami! And she wants to battle!

http://i.imgur.com/tpZin6w.png

This isn't much of a fight, you're up against the weakest enemies in the game. And no, you still can't affect the outcome of the battle in any way besides reloading until you get what you want.

http://i.imgur.com/rc6akNP.png

I won, but uh...

http://i.imgur.com/EPjvo1s.png

...yeah...

http://i.imgur.com/JnOZ7bY.png

...no way am I gonna beat Sasami now. Didn't even get her down to half HP.

http://i.imgur.com/0d0SszA.png

Don't ask me why the battle with Sasami has anything to do with the mission that was originally recruiting a new team member.

And so the night goes on...

That's it for Part 2. Next time, we will actually start playing baseball!

Just a quick note, right here you get a choice of whether or not you want the battle sequences to play.

http://i.imgur.com/4fRzTz0.png

Since this is the first run, I leave them on. I might turn them off for subsequent runs, at least for some. A nice little feature to help replays go faster.

Also, for those who haven't seen the anime, if you're interested what the characters sound like, here's a clip that has the voices of the five main characters.

Em-2zDNjYVs

It's the anime version of the "aphorisms homework" scene. Note that Riki is not voiced in the visual novel.

Just another day begins.

http://i.imgur.com/0LjCHJc.png

Everyone's here eating their breakfast. But before long, a dangerous enemy appears...

http://i.imgur.com/9vaidQU.png

A FLY?! Quick, hide!

http://i.imgur.com/ETozwmf.png

Oh thank god Kengo is here to protect us. Go get him!

http://i.imgur.com/Nkibhju.png

Okay that's actually pretty impressive.

http://i.imgur.com/taYcAxw.png

Uh oh, Masato's "can't lose to Kengo" spirit is building up. This is gonna be bad.

http://i.imgur.com/qptgB2j.png

You don't punch a freaking louse. Because...

http://i.imgur.com/Ux8iLve.png

...ah. Too late.

http://i.imgur.com/sng1nwx.png http://i.imgur.com/ocPSY0U.png

You don't need me to tell you what happens next, right?

http://i.imgur.com/05GcJNg.png

Obviously. But just then, Kyousuke intervenes.

http://i.imgur.com/Jf1ZlFu.png

As it turns out, we're the last ones in the cafeteria - and classes are due to start right about now. We rush back to the school building.

http://i.imgur.com/yIN6Oo6.png

I'm sure he's about to come up with some really stupid plan.

http://i.imgur.com/tcrZD4T.png http://i.imgur.com/tdwNggh.png

Uh, what is he thinking of...

http://i.imgur.com/zPDQ1rZ.png

Wait, WHAT?

http://i.imgur.com/kjpH2KU.png

Yeah, that! What kind of idea is that? Throw them three stories upwards, there's no way...

Music for this part: Mission Possible (http://youtu.be/NqwUuQboE88)

http://i.imgur.com/Qqn5gk0.png

Oh dear god... okay this is just getting funny now.

http://i.imgur.com/PnjUfrm.png

I love the "Please" in the instructions. As if the game is asking you to please not let Rin fall.

The two gauges rapidly fill and empty at two different speeds. It's not really difficult to line them up so they're both in the upper halves, but you can easily mess up. Not that it affects anything past the next scene.

http://i.imgur.com/QkvbRtN.png

I managed to get a pretty good result... at least it would seem that way.

http://i.imgur.com/NK2nmiT.png

http://i.imgur.com/WMnou9x.png

I can't stop laughing right now.

http://i.imgur.com/GjuGJOF.png

How the smurf did they do that.

http://i.imgur.com/LJILrSV.png

Ah damn. I think she's gonna die. Sorry, Rin.

http://i.imgur.com/BubIchJ.png

Eh, what? Did she land on the roof or what?

http://i.imgur.com/Jf28R7M.png

No freaking way. This is the most ridiculous thing I've read in this visual novel so far. And I love it.

http://i.imgur.com/QWggCiB.png

Mission Complete! Because everything went according to plan!

http://i.imgur.com/ITPueHa.png

Masato still gets a throughout beating, of course. But that's only natural.

I remember when I saw this scene in the anime for the first time. I couldn't help but laugh out loud. Sure, let's throw Rin three floors up in the air! Why not?

Either way, classes start and we skip ahead to recess.

http://i.imgur.com/a8YzCx4.png
http://i.imgur.com/z60aRgg.png
http://i.imgur.com/9XPcyyU.png

Uh oh, I've got a bad feeling about this.

It takes a bit of persuasion, but eventually Masato owns up.

Oh hey, a new character! This is a girl called Saigusa-san.

http://i.imgur.com/s27Id9V.png

Saigusa Haruka - a top contender for my favorite heroine in this game. Mainly because her path is quite easily my favorite of the main character paths.

http://i.imgur.com/2MCQHbY.png http://i.imgur.com/wlOF6YP.png http://i.imgur.com/lFlBwPq.png

Uh, what did I just say? That she is my favorite heroine? Well therefore of course I don't want her to hate me, so I picked "Don't lend it out". It's for her own safety.

http://i.imgur.com/s1NyTO0.png

Lunchtime. Our group of five is eating together, and Kyousuke already has plans for us.

Rin has the right idea.

http://i.imgur.com/BHYAKll.png http://i.imgur.com/eELE18Y.png

Oh? Another new character already? After a bit of trouble finding her, Riki decides that she could only be on the rooftop.

Music for this part: Race (http://youtu.be/w2ghcB2shFw)

http://i.imgur.com/thJ7V53.png

There's an open window and a screwdriver next to it. Kamikita seems a bit audacious.

http://i.imgur.com/rqFa6HG.png http://i.imgur.com/6EXmmjb.png

I wouldn't be surprised to hear a stalker accusation. We did follow her up to a closed-off rooftop for no apparent reason.

http://i.imgur.com/ckYRMIc.png http://i.imgur.com/NRIVcvW.png http://i.imgur.com/eBkzpXn.png

Kamikita Komari. She's a little ditzy. She mistakes Riki for a guidance counselor and tries to talk her way out of being up here. Riki grabs her attention.

http://i.imgur.com/mxXspht.png http://i.imgur.com/2f57n3l.png

Now you're just screwing with me. Is Riki hiding behind a wall or why can't you just look at him?

http://i.imgur.com/6nNXYZz.png http://i.imgur.com/aQYWMjN.png http://i.imgur.com/an476Bq.png

Whatever you want to call it. She doesn't exactly seem like prime baseball team member material.

http://i.imgur.com/RwtsftT.png

Case in point, she manages to get stuck underneath a water tank.

Of course, you need to imagine all of Kamikita's lines being spoken in sort of a teary tone.

Music for this part: Magic Ensemble (Komari's Theme) (http://youtu.be/Ks1Oo3u_IBE)

So now, let me formally introduce to you: Kamikita Komari. Not my favorite character, especially not my favorite introduction to a character, but she's alright. She is... a little ditzy sometimes, of course, and this scene does nothing to dispute that.

http://i.imgur.com/BF3RObK.png

...yeah. I don't think I need to elaborate.

http://i.imgur.com/6Al7GJn.png http://i.imgur.com/oolxWXn.png http://i.imgur.com/YhuF2ZI.png http://i.imgur.com/OXARlZ5.png http://i.imgur.com/amLQcDa.png

Everyone needs to have dreams, don't be so harsh, Riki.

http://i.imgur.com/tsorj5Q.png http://i.imgur.com/85Llv8O.png http://i.imgur.com/CXDyTKu.png

Don't shatter her dreams, Riki. Ah well, enough talk about her panties.

http://i.imgur.com/q9qyVBo.png

You better come up with a good excuse.

http://i.imgur.com/vFJ6Pl4.png http://i.imgur.com/xjUFsaF.png

Blame it on Kyousuke. And besides...

http://i.imgur.com/zh4s1yf.png http://i.imgur.com/6vrQ7cC.png

Yeah, sure, whatever.

http://i.imgur.com/UgrFBFM.png

She even goes so far as to say this is the one place where she can feel at ease. I guess that's fine. She even invites Riki to be her "conspirator" (as it is forbidden to be up here)

http://i.imgur.com/se71b5B.png

And she hands over her screwdriver to Riki. That's nice of her. Though knowing her, she probably doesn't even have a spare.

http://i.imgur.com/TLGOPFv.png

Oh that's right, we were supposed to be recruiting members, weren't we?

http://i.imgur.com/6iQ4vtS.png

Everyone onboard, the train will leave in 2 minutes~

http://i.imgur.com/GVufHQe.png

Ah damn. Now we can't deny it. I still blame Kyousuke, though. Thankfully Kamikita's not the type to hold it against you.

http://i.imgur.com/VNaTBLM.png

We have a little snack atop the roof.

After that, Riki heads back down.

http://i.imgur.com/pbaglim.png http://i.imgur.com/bzT6G7q.png

She's still doing this.

http://i.imgur.com/PVptHZK.png http://i.imgur.com/fcAYcmN.png http://i.imgur.com/qXhASer.png http://i.imgur.com/IFg0VzT.png http://i.imgur.com/3lPWuM3.png

If you pick "Let her be" you are locked out of Rin's route. Since I have the feeling a certain reader would have loud objections to that, I went with "Go look for her".

Music for this part: Ring Ring Ring! (http://youtu.be/3R_sAFn0qKQ)

http://i.imgur.com/wVeTM2I.png http://i.imgur.com/Z9yo4Qq.png

Ah, this again. And once again we'll be watching for a while. Gives us another tranquil image of Rin playing with her cats.

http://i.imgur.com/QnoA7H0.png

It sure is relaxing to look at. This time, however, there's something that grabs Riki's attention.

http://i.imgur.com/XiyKuFb.png http://i.imgur.com/t1N4Jgq.png http://i.imgur.com/gWezYfC.png

Lol, whatever.

http://i.imgur.com/7oEG78K.png http://i.imgur.com/e6rr9hx.png

Well then, let's take a look.

http://i.imgur.com/eo7HDYH.png

Not a love letter, but mystifying nonetheless. Rin also has a second letter that apparently explains things a bit.

http://i.imgur.com/pOHTUgY.png http://i.imgur.com/kXw5qa6.png

I'm surprised the first task wasn't "Transfer 10000 Yen into this bank account". Maybe they're actually serious. Where did they come from anyways?

http://i.imgur.com/M7iB0i4.png

Aha, so Lennon is the culprit! ...maybe not.

http://i.imgur.com/YyTTMf6.png http://i.imgur.com/Lw1EoJv.png

Riki? Two minutes ago we were running around the school building talking like train conductors for no reason at all. Your point doesn't hold up well.

http://i.imgur.com/deAIoB5.png http://i.imgur.com/DYeRFkd.png http://i.imgur.com/N1sjezx.png

Now Riki feels a bit control-freaky...

http://i.imgur.com/z7eUH33.png

S-sure, that's all...

http://i.imgur.com/Co6FgMj.png

And she's okay with that? Whatever works for her, I guess...

So we head back to the clubroom and Kyousuke tells us his plans for the team.

http://i.imgur.com/WHOiwLF.png http://i.imgur.com/VDZhuqq.png http://i.imgur.com/B3ws7eE.png http://i.imgur.com/BLM0H3g.png http://i.imgur.com/jF0XuIk.png

http://i.imgur.com/EfD25Lh.png

Oh yes, the baseball practice. A very relaxing minigame. All you need to do is move in four directions and swing the bat to try and hit Rin's pitches.

http://i.imgur.com/5H8z7GA.png http://i.imgur.com/fdMcEKf.png http://i.imgur.com/tMp4KHb.png http://i.imgur.com/IAbmjz6.png

...unfortunately Rin is a horrible pitcher.

http://i.imgur.com/smKtJ2r.png
http://i.imgur.com/QirbSEL.png

Well, let's see if it was just a once-in-a-lifetime misthrow.

http://i.imgur.com/OB0HjWh.png http://i.imgur.com/WtrKamE.png http://i.imgur.com/mNAcSSE.png

No there's no way to dodge or hit that ball. It will always hit you.

Well that was better, but still not quite good. Especially since she hit Riki.

http://i.imgur.com/lHwpvfC.png http://i.imgur.com/kt9m2F3.png

Kyousuke's had enough of this.

http://i.imgur.com/5Zr4IzG.png http://i.imgur.com/S1y1dKc.png http://i.imgur.com/WQjmBD6.png

He really does come up with the best ideas, doesn't he?

http://i.imgur.com/RxvslfI.png

Ah, looks like Rin finally has the motivation she needed!

http://i.imgur.com/z6zWFr5.png

Nah, I don't think that'll be necessary. Because look, Rin's gonna pitch right towards me...

http://i.imgur.com/IKAhLg6.png http://i.imgur.com/aEud9uY.png http://i.imgur.com/FTcntZ3.png http://i.imgur.com/QHVt6Y8.png

I don't know whether to be more shocked at the fact that she managed to accidently throw the ball over to Masato AGAIN, or that Masato actually hit it.

http://i.imgur.com/q6mDQca.png http://i.imgur.com/RLaBQn7.png http://i.imgur.com/tdWT4zP.png http://i.imgur.com/1kyk2nt.png

You totally brought this on yourself, Rin.

http://i.imgur.com/rEPxkcU.png

Still probably hurts to have that title.

http://i.imgur.com/MpEMcFg.png

So now, Batting Practice can finally begin.

http://i.imgur.com/oYmVei3.png http://i.imgur.com/7i7JBvU.png

If you don't feel like doing baseball practice during replays, you can conveniently turn them off. For Chapter 1 I'll leave it on, and I might turn it off after that. Even if I do turn it on, I won't be taking screenshots of it.

http://i.imgur.com/6rLPIrk.png

So let me give you a quick rundown of how it works. On the top right you have a radar showing yourself, Rin and Masato as yellow dots, Kyousuke as red dot, and all the cats as blue dots. Rin will pitch towards you (hopefully) and you just try to hit it. You can control where the ball will go to a degree, though it takes some practice before you can have it go where you want it to.

Generally, you want to hit the ball towards your teammates, particularly Kyousuke. If you do that, they will throw the ball right back to you and you can hit the incoming ball directly, building up a chain. Rin will deliberately dodge your balls, by the way, and Masato just bats it right back to you. Kyousuke will make an effort to get your balls and he's pretty good at it, so try to bat towards him as much as possible.

It's pretty difficult for me to play this and take screenshots at the same time, so unless you explicitly ask for it, I won't be taking many.

Here is an example of a combo:

http://i.imgur.com/87eNfWK.png

But do you know what happens most of all.

You will hit those goddamn cats ALL THE DAMN TIME!

http://i.imgur.com/DwBo5qP.png

I swear you will hit them every few balls, it's inadvertible. I honestly am not trying to hit them, but they deliberately jump straight into your shots and get themselves knocked out.

http://i.imgur.com/Xt9I7Ko.png

It happens all the time. And Rin will always get mad at you for it. Nothing you can do about it but willingly get 20 strikes until practice ends. You can also end it manually if you want. I mostly just hope for the best that they don't get themselves hit.

http://i.imgur.com/TcWxZEK.png

As you can see, doing baseball practice increases your team members' stats. The more you hit the ball towards someone, the higher they power up. You still get stat ups even if you manually end the session just after it started, but not as much.

By the way, in case you noticed, Riki has a chibi model and a portrait in the baseball segments. Yes, he is also voiced there. One of the few times that is the case.

So did Rin's skills impress everyone?

http://i.imgur.com/mE5wXEK.png

I guess not.

Seems like Masato is a little dissatisfied with baseball.

http://i.imgur.com/a0Dggnj.png http://i.imgur.com/N4vFIz0.png http://i.imgur.com/AgMrJrw.png

Oh, this is gonna be amazing.

http://i.imgur.com/72h7UmF.png

Seriously. I want to buy this guy's brain.

Alright, the Battle Rankings. One of the greatest "pointless fun" parts of Little Busters. Sadly, the anime could only bring it in the one OVA episode, so much of this may be new to those who have only seen that.

http://i.imgur.com/ujWhvUY.png http://i.imgur.com/sNCCqHx.png http://i.imgur.com/xHXKulZ.png

http://i.imgur.com/W5HG6bV.png http://i.imgur.com/Pn0cewC.png

Alright fair enough, so did Masato get a weapon that's any good?

http://i.imgur.com/kBKYx7j.png

But of course not.

http://i.imgur.com/wqJjf9K.png

Now that we've come to this point, I can finally post this:

Music for this part: Heroic Battle (http://youtu.be/Y_kWXJc753o)

Awesome battle theme!

http://i.imgur.com/r9QvvZU.png

Rin uses 12 cats so she gets 12 hits per turn. This battle is scripted though, of course.

http://i.imgur.com/Lop0dEc.png

Smooth move Masato. If only this was a battle you could win.

http://i.imgur.com/Jr7QTpV.png http://i.imgur.com/Zx9iJ1C.png http://i.imgur.com/4yAaIcy.png

Well that was a quick match. Masato will have his revenge someday. Maybe.

http://i.imgur.com/LTM1lVV.png

http://i.imgur.com/fXOZvNs.png

Oh that is cold. She might still be mad about her own title.

http://i.imgur.com/amAsMM3.png

Poor Masato. Gotta become the provisional ruler of the battle rankings!

http://i.imgur.com/ds6AJDJ.png

I'll gladly keep these turned on, thank you very much.

So that's it for now. Next time we'll recruit a new member and get right into those Battle Rankings! Why else would we power up our team during baseball practice?


So now that we're getting further into the common path, I doubt more parts are going to be this long. I might have to abruptly end a part now and then if a critical choice comes up that I want the readers to vote on. Can't go by memory on that.

So last time Masato was awarded the wonderful title of "Waste". His friends don't leave out a single opportunity to make fun of it.

http://i.imgur.com/zUS6yE7.png

http://i.imgur.com/tqyNqlf.png

Can't say I didn't expect this somewhat. But that's bad news for Masato, of course.

Riki, challenge Kengo? Yeah I doubt that's gonna happen.

http://i.imgur.com/54r7NPb.png http://i.imgur.com/YHSXWcP.png

Everything all normal.

So after dinner, Riki and Masato go back to their room.

http://i.imgur.com/htTxtj9.png

Look, there's no way I can beat Kengo.

http://i.imgur.com/zXdmrUp.png

I said no.

http://i.imgur.com/hvoisEW.png

...

http://i.imgur.com/EhVat0p.png

So we are given the choice to "Wander" (= challenge Kengo) or "Rest" (= don't). I picked "Wander".

So how much control do you have over the battles? The weapons are decided randomly, but you can manually stop the 'reels' from spinning. They'll still spin on for a while after you click though so you'll never be able to pinpoint what weapon you'll get.

The battles then play out automatically, and so you have no further control. Outside of loading or rewinding until you get the result you want, of course. And you can manage your accessories and stats to a degree.

So this battle against Kengo? It doesn't look good:

http://i.imgur.com/L8UaWHW.png

We got the same freaking weapon. I didn't even know that was possible. But since we got the same, it comes down to stats and luck, and Kengo is far better on that end.

http://i.imgur.com/3AmMbK7.png http://i.imgur.com/C5MuIEU.png

It's a fierce battle and it wasn't even that much of a stomp, but Kengo beat me in the end.

http://i.imgur.com/gyQ20Pk.png

http://i.imgur.com/yeODco3.png

http://i.imgur.com/XJx4ED8.png

Fun fact: first time I played this game I beat Kengo right here. I must've been quite lucky.

So with that little fight settled we return to our room where we continue Rin's mission from yesterday.

The Club Trio is still just as little of a fight as before and Sasami is still just as unbeatable. Quite frustrating, innit?

May 16th

http://i.imgur.com/9SegNpV.png

Just another day. What's this, the fourth day already? Only five more until the match? This is gonna be wonderful.

But, there's something more important right now.

http://i.imgur.com/R7clbhT.png http://i.imgur.com/3zfakuP.png

Really, Rin? Why do you have to be this secretive?

http://i.imgur.com/FviSmZM.png http://i.imgur.com/Y7fUPGz.png

Just what I was wondering. Maybe it's embarassing to her.

So we head back to class, and not soon after...

http://i.imgur.com/p8fZNbb.png http://i.imgur.com/pM04Yv7.png

Haruka comes in again. Straight over to Riki's desk.

But anyways, that doesn't explain why she's here.

Well that's Saigusa Haruka for you.

http://i.imgur.com/1EWS9f1.png

http://i.imgur.com/ymlpUR5.png

Masato's such a swell friend, ain't he? Always looking out for Kengo.

http://i.imgur.com/lLR8quP.png

Meanwhile Haruka is occupied with something else entirely, and not even paying attention anymore.

Before long, more guests appear in the classroom.

http://i.imgur.com/CxoPbjV.png

http://i.imgur.com/bmeSR4f.png http://i.imgur.com/1KCeyTY.png

They so will not find her.

http://i.imgur.com/SBwVbI8.png http://i.imgur.com/LKRD4dC.png

http://i.imgur.com/DuTn0Wa.png

Heh. She might fit into the Little Busters just fine.

So first period goes by, and then we get to break.

http://i.imgur.com/yLGmdgf.png

And we get a short message from her!

http://i.imgur.com/Ue2KEAM.png

Hmm, I wonder what this could mean... mysterious...

So Riki runs out to the school gate and finds Rin there.

Music for this part: Ring Ring Ring! (http://youtu.be/3R_sAFn0qKQ)

http://i.imgur.com/OI0fdOx.png

Did she find out what the caterpillar problem was all about?

Sure seems that way.

Fortunately, a certain idiot comes by just then.

http://i.imgur.com/io3W2nL.png

With this guy's help, this should be no problem at all!

http://i.imgur.com/3YyLFDo.png http://i.imgur.com/aOWcU6S.png http://i.imgur.com/9PW3v4r.png

Nice, Masato!

http://i.imgur.com/FmvwIyX.png

...almost.

We collect caterpillars until we got just about all of them.

http://i.imgur.com/TH9azQd.png

http://i.imgur.com/5MS3kGY.png http://i.imgur.com/SjfhQeq.png

Just reading this makes me smile, it's so like her.

http://i.imgur.com/qaMweK2.png

http://i.imgur.com/wx6m6ln.png

Oh, it's her. Just great.

http://i.imgur.com/W8GeYY6.png

Always assuming the worst...

http://i.imgur.com/2no9aDF.png

Wait what?

http://i.imgur.com/ZC4teYH.png

Oh. I was wondering.

http://i.imgur.com/1kWezO5.png

http://i.imgur.com/sIX7fEl.png

She really is, isn't she?

http://i.imgur.com/Sg7W5Pu.png http://i.imgur.com/2KxbfNf.png

Minions sounds about accurate.

http://i.imgur.com/bVD1ST0.png http://i.imgur.com/iX7sNJC.png

Heh. That might be true.

So then, back in the classroom, after the next period...

http://i.imgur.com/ioM2I4O.png

http://i.imgur.com/ycZiQY5.png

If you don't pick "Follow after Rin" you are locked out of Rin's route. Would be a shame to let that happen now, wouldn't it? So I followed her.

http://i.imgur.com/KRtqBDf.png

This choice seems familiar by now. This time I picked "Call out to her".

http://i.imgur.com/ZZMjUZ2.png

I feel almost a bit guilty about disturbing Rin's cat sanctuary. But there's a new letter.

http://i.imgur.com/08LBXQZ.png

Why would the sender send this to Rin, a girl? Fortunately, Riki volunteers.

http://i.imgur.com/Qi3zC2Z.png

Sounds fine. But Rin has an objection.

http://i.imgur.com/JQfQO1S.png http://i.imgur.com/okf3OAN.png http://i.imgur.com/129Tj52.png

And so this suddenly became a lot more work.

We still have some time, so...

http://i.imgur.com/SJCjyHb.png

http://i.imgur.com/NFRkdmH.png

Let's end this part with some wandering!

Music for this part: Heroic Battle (http://youtu.be/Y_kWXJc753o)

http://i.imgur.com/sPPdcEO.png

So at this point, let me quickly explain how wandering works. It's not complicated.

Upon wandering, you run into a random other member of the Little Busters. If they're one rank below you, they challenge you to a fight. If they're one rank above you, you can challenge them. If they're anyone else, you can trade accessories with them.

http://i.imgur.com/fA125oF.png

So I ran into Kyousuke. We can't battle so we trade. But I don't have any accessories yet, so he just donates me an item.

http://i.imgur.com/LveTsJI.png

I accept, of course.

http://i.imgur.com/dLX1TqJ.png

I didn't catch a screenshot of me getting the item, but it's called the "Masterpiece Theater" Series DVD-BOX, no idea what it does.

http://i.imgur.com/IooQElx.png http://i.imgur.com/Hea6JmX.png

After your own wandering is done, you can watch another pair duke it out. Any character only appears once during a wandering session, so Kyousuke definitely couldn't have been a part of this matchup.

Of course I want to watch this battle. An actual NOT rigged battle between Masato and Rin? I doubt Rin stands a chance.

http://i.imgur.com/ikQmNDR.png

http://i.imgur.com/ScGgSbi.png

Fun weapons aren't they? Well actually the balloons are one of the most powerful weapons in this game. They work pretty much the same regardless of your stats and deal a lot of damage. The way they work is that on every one of your turns you blow up 1 balloon (later 1-2, or 1-3 per turn) and randomly on your enemy's turn they step on one, causing all of the balloons you've made so far to blow up and deal damage.

How powerful is this? Well it can cause quite sick combos...

http://i.imgur.com/pXfmcBk.png

http://i.imgur.com/7o7i4AX.png

She took way more damage than she'd have actually needed to.

http://i.imgur.com/qyJqmqt.png

Oh come on, you used to be the Legendary no-con, remember? What are you complaining about?

http://i.imgur.com/kAClLqj.png

Current battle rankings. I won't be worrying about it too much in Chapter 1, but I will make sure to get to the top in subsequent chapters.

So that's it for now. Next time we will REALLY recruit a new member and get to know all but one heroine in this game! It might turn out to be a quite long part, seeing as how the intro conversation for one of the new heroines is more than 100 screenshots long by itself and I feel like I would be leaving out too much characterization if I cropped it.

So after that little task with the caterpillars we're back in class and baseball is the main subject once more.

http://i.imgur.com/qxhCOyK.png

Masato makes a feeble attempt at recruiting Kengo. Since they're fierce rivals, he might be wanting to face him on the baseball field.

Unfortunately, Kengo's attachment to kendo makes it an impossibility.

http://i.imgur.com/VxdJ8Fu.png

WE'VE FOUND THE SOLUTION! Maybe not.

http://i.imgur.com/en39bHI.png

Shion, you were right. Three...

http://i.imgur.com/T4tw6xb.png http://i.imgur.com/plw4qd7.png

Two...

http://i.imgur.com/zbLKNU4.png

http://i.imgur.com/YvcMr70.png

One...

http://i.imgur.com/0MPshmX.png

http://i.imgur.com/THQ1L42.png

They sure do like fighting each other. But since they're both idiots it's fine, right?

Riki's attempt at stopping the fight is about as successful as Masato's attempt at recruiting Kengo. Desperately, he decides to quickly find Kyousuke so he can mediate. Riki sure is dependent on him, isn't he?

Unfortunately, Kyousuke is not easy to find.

http://i.imgur.com/QoRkEKf.png http://i.imgur.com/ZywPmP6.png http://i.imgur.com/sUQiOnS.png

http://i.imgur.com/WTylq8P.png

This is pretty pointless but you don't lose anything if you just go ahead and read the QR code. So I did.

http://i.imgur.com/kg7NhPh.png

http://i.imgur.com/rdFsj2K.png

Alright, they're both idiots but you still don't want them to get in a really competitive battle. Wouldn't want Masato to break Kengo's arm, now would we?

http://i.imgur.com/lzCOplr.png http://i.imgur.com/wC0bsDe.png

Hmm, now this is a voice we have not yet heard before.

Kurugaya has some pretty good sprites.

http://i.imgur.com/KTnDSUW.png http://i.imgur.com/ypGpccr.png

Riki, sit your ass down and dring your goddamn TEA! Is that so hard?

Kurugaya certainly seems to be a bit ... above all that.

http://i.imgur.com/HlbVWSk.png http://i.imgur.com/z3TnAGM.png

http://i.imgur.com/BIR1ihy.png

That's certainly true. This was 100 screenshots just now. I guess I could've left some parts out, but it didn't feel right, I wanted to preserve Kurugaya's characterization here.

http://i.imgur.com/jhmfc6w.png

They don't tell us who won but I doubt it was Masato. The guy just never wins scripted battles.

So Riki returns to the club room, only to find that everyone's already left.

http://i.imgur.com/UUsOnR7.png http://i.imgur.com/Hr5YyLp.png

He then goes to look for a place to eat. I'd have suggested the cafeteria but first he goes back to his classroom, notices his seat is taken, and then goes on to look around some more.

http://i.imgur.com/X0lzT0z.png

Yeah why didn't you?

Oh well, it's not important as he soon has another idea.

http://i.imgur.com/HOyXOu7.png http://i.imgur.com/UFPqSOd.png

And before we even get there, Kamikita catches up to us from behind.

Maybe she doesn't even know what baseball is. Whatever, it's not like she's gonna join our team or anything.

So here are the current standings:

And that's it for now. Next time we'll see if Kamikita can join our team, and maybe we'll also get to know another potential recruit. See you then!



I will try not to lock myself out of any routes for now, and once we know all the main girls, I'll put it to a vote whose route we'll go through first. Don't worry, we'll go through all of them eventually.

Next part will be up in about 24 hours which is also when I'm finally freed from one very nasty deadline that has been plaguing me for a while, so I'll be able to update more frequently. Daily would be nice.

On the way to the dorm head, we hear a bit of an uproar. Looks like the prefects are looking for someone.

http://i.imgur.com/9G6a9Av.png http://i.imgur.com/dke8MbL.png http://i.imgur.com/g1BJyPL.png

I wonder who they could be looking for...

http://i.imgur.com/vebdoKM.png

Just like with the previous choice, opting to "Run away" skips this next scene. I'm unsure if there are any minor ripple effects, like changed lines later on, but certainly nothing major. But since I'm not playing this game to skip scenes, I went with "Get involved".

So what's Kyousuke's excuse?

Music for this part: Day Game (http://youtu.be/v4JVXMd5Aek)

Komari is on the field this time. She walks laps. You can try hitting her but it's difficult. You don't really have that kind of control over the ball.

http://i.imgur.com/r30IFGR.png

shion, I'm so sorry.

After 20 balls you're given the option to either continue for another 20 balls, or call it a day.

Of course I continued, because apparently I hadn't hit enough kitties yet...

Rin actually got really mad at me. Every now and then she tried hitting me with the ball directly. You can dodge them quite nicely, though.

http://i.imgur.com/jezHB3B.png

She still hates me though, probably.

Practice ends, and we got some stat ups!

http://i.imgur.com/b925Z1Q.png

Getting stronger and stronger, aren't we? Since Kengo isn't training with us, we might be able to take him on and claim the #1 spot.

Pretty even weapons, too... and Masato has one where his strength comes in handy.

Better than "Waste", though, isn't it?

Before you ask, no, you cannot choose titles yourself. Riki just kinda gives totally random ones.

"Total stranger". I get it if you're shy and you don't know everyone in your class but saying she's a total stranger goes a bit far. How could there be someone in your class you never ever take any notice of?

Anyways, while looking for more potential recruits, take one guess whom we run into again.

http://i.imgur.com/rHwJ8rP.png http://i.imgur.com/7LrqaoD.png

N-nothing. Definitely not fulfilling tasks written by some stranger so we can find out the "secret of this world". How stupid do you think we are?

http://i.imgur.com/a1vZcfU.png

That's right, she wants to keep it secret for some reason. The only one who knows is Riki...

http://i.imgur.com/kBSz0dn.png http://i.imgur.com/AwZ9Edw.png http://i.imgur.com/vWaHARh.png http://i.imgur.com/tGrdg42.png http://i.imgur.com/0lCKIiV.png http://i.imgur.com/ucDyv8s.png

I doubt she'd have asked someone else for help.

So, as we walk back to school, Riki pulls Kyousuke aside.

Well said, big brother. Though this does bring up a tough question: who's been sending these tasks to Rin?

So classes start and first period ends. Take a guess who shows up!

http://i.imgur.com/hw4Ymqm.png http://i.imgur.com/vw6GTkk.png

What's up?

http://i.imgur.com/u4CWeeq.png

http://i.imgur.com/5k5D8U4.png

First instance where wandering can actually interfere with the story. Because I like Haruka, I picked "Look for it". I don't think it makes much of a difference.

http://i.imgur.com/ToXRDRL.png http://i.imgur.com/gvbzunj.png

So one lesson later, we try asking Kurugaya about Kud's room problem.

http://i.imgur.com/NZddRPK.png

I did skip a bunch of dialogue there, but it was mostly technical stuff about how room sharing works.

http://i.imgur.com/qqfiAbM.png
http://i.imgur.com/7Ir8X0p.png

Masato and Kengo are fighting for no good reason once again.

Basically the story is that Masato asked Kengo about how to read a Kanji character and Kengo told him the completely wrong pronunciation, so now Masato is mad at him.

http://i.imgur.com/SAA0Mdx.png
http://i.imgur.com/dlG6ik1.png

I can imagine that would stick in Masato's mind.

That...can't be good.

As if I would pick the lower option! A matchup between Masato and Kurugaya? Hell yes! So I went with "Watch the battle".

Oh. That was a quick bit of training in the mountains. (His stats aren't even any higher)

So that was the battle Masato vs Kurugaya. Quite definitely one of the game's most ridiculous scenes.

Let's end the episode with some Kyousuke.

http://i.imgur.com/gMSNJTl.png

That would be it for now. Next time is most likely when we'll finally get to meet the 10th main character. Look forward to it!

It's nice to see Kud show up!

Man, I enjoyed all the characters in this anime, which is nigh on unheard of. xD

This may seem familiar enough by now. Of course I follow her. Not picking "Run after Rin" locks you out of Rin's route. As always.

Music for this part: Ring Ring Ring! (http://youtu.be/3R_sAFn0qKQ)

http://i.imgur.com/o5JI4nv.png

I watched for a while. Apparently she has a cat named "Dorj" which is rather heavy. You'll see more of that later this part.

But let's get on with the tasks, shall we?

http://i.imgur.com/TalSj2L.png

http://i.imgur.com/Il5wRKd.png

Huh? What exactly is that supposed to mean?

http://i.imgur.com/JsebyPX.png

Riki and Rin don't seem to have any idea either. Rin starts speculating.

http://i.imgur.com/13dgM29.png http://i.imgur.com/JueT4D2.png

Yeah I don't think that's the problem.

http://i.imgur.com/4brhRWQ.png

http://i.imgur.com/lWuXm7J.png

The staff lady clarifies that she doesn't actually mind the fighting, it's just what came to mind immediatly. Oh well, I think Masato can handle a little beating.

http://i.imgur.com/py6s2aP.png http://i.imgur.com/WnDh8Ly.png http://i.imgur.com/Pu5FdCD.png

http://i.imgur.com/tCkdmwt.png

http://i.imgur.com/gGFNZGL.png

If Rin and Kengo are just one rank apart during this scene, there will be an instant ranking battle between them.

http://i.imgur.com/IduPBVK.png http://i.imgur.com/bem5r74.png

Lying face-down against a wall is not what I would call "napping".

http://i.imgur.com/hsfkSOF.png

Ah crap. Right here, Masato will challenge whoever is one rank higher than him, unless it's Komari (yeah right) or he's already at the top of the scoreboard. I'm not sure what happens then, but presumably the battle is just skipped.

Just my luck that I had to be that unfortunate person. Oh well, I might be as lucky as last time.

Masato picks pretty weird names for Riki...

So the battle is over and classes resume.

http://i.imgur.com/ufbsmAs.png http://i.imgur.com/XWKmRCS.png

We sure haven't but that might be because we have no clue what the problem IS.

http://i.imgur.com/G7nLF2s.png

Okay so you attacked Masato AND Kengo on a false premise, and then didn't even bother to tell them why? Sure, that's some great problem-solving skills, Rin.

http://i.imgur.com/TBA69fL.png http://i.imgur.com/2dKB75e.png

I don't know, and I doubt we'll be finding out all that soon. Best to just leave it for now.

http://i.imgur.com/rtaZnt5.png

I don't know if it's even possible to run into Masato here. There's a rule that prohibits the same pair from fighting twice in a row, but I don't know if that rule is actually being enforced at all.

http://i.imgur.com/NvrDz1B.png

Oh well, no battle but hey, I got a free item. That thing increases Body Strength by 50 if I'm not mistaken.

http://i.imgur.com/RbzizdD.png

Ah ha ha ha. Yeah, remember how I brought up Dorj before? That cat is Rin's secret and best weapon. She doesn't get it often, but it's the most ridiculously powerful weapon in the game.

How powerful is it? Well, I'll show you.

Yeah. Short of the instant kill that comes with some special weapons, this is the most powerful attack in the game. I didn't capture it but the screen shakes heavily and the music cuts out shortly during that earthquake attack.

I've seen Dorj end battles in one attack. That cat is just too damn strong. I feel sorry for Komari, getting so utterly destroyed in her first battle.

Nishizono Mio. The last of the 10 main characters of this game, and with that we now know all the characters that appear on the picture in the OP of this topic. She certainly seems like the most fragile and unathletic of them all, but she's wonderfully poetic. I like her. Her character arc is among the most interesting.

http://i.imgur.com/XZQ4kL2.png

Anyways, so Rin has learned her first two special pitches. At this point the baseball practice both gets quite a bit more interesting as it gets difficult. Raging Meow Balls are not easy to hit until you're used to it, and the more special pitches she learns the harder it will be to predict what she'll do.

Next time we'll see if we can get something done for little Kud's room search, and then presumably continue Rin's member hunt mission. Might go a bit further than that, depends on how long it gets.





Time To Choose
Now that we know all ten main characters, it's time to start the vote: whose character route shall we go through first? We will go through all of them eventually, but for now, time to decide on the first.

It will still take six more game-time-days until a definitive choice has to be made, so there's no rush, but I'll open the vote now.

So... choose

Personally, I'd go for Rin's route first. Mostly for organizational reasons and because it showcases... an important part of the structure of the Little Busters visual novel, I would say. But it's up to you. Pretty much every path is quite different in the visual novel when compared to their anime adaptations.

Try quoting the post, then previewing it.

With one clear vote, one implicit vote, and one "okay", it seems like Rin is going to win. Good.

Either way, we still have a lot of the General Path to go through before it branches off. So let's continue!


So Rin learned two new pitches, and now baseball practice is over. Riki and Kud take this opportunity to talk to Rin about the room sharing thing.

http://i.imgur.com/OsVp3Kg.png

Oh. Well now I just feel silly, going to all this trouble.

A little anecdote, the dorm head is a wonderful character in the anime. Why? Because she has more screentime during the show's opening than during the actual show. And she smiles and waves at the screen during the opening, like she's an actually important character.

The name she's known under in other parts of Little Busters is "A-chan", but I've just gotten used to calling her "Filler", myself.

http://i.imgur.com/VzI44OL.png http://i.imgur.com/35cQXJL.png http://i.imgur.com/LzAx1af.png

Whoa! A character with a portrait! She's only on-screen for less than a second, but that's enough to take note of her scary eyes.

http://i.imgur.com/9MfPhPr.png http://i.imgur.com/s1Z0eFL.png

So all we need to do is find someone who's willing to share a room? That should be simple enough.

http://i.imgur.com/f99tD6M.png

Looks like Kud got some more packages and is once again struggling to get them inside her room.

The tambourine gives +30 to Agility. Not particularly useful, but you get it here every time you play this game, so it can be used for trading her something good, if you want to make Rin a stronger fighter.

Yeah, can't beat them anymore. RPG rules state that fighting the same enemy in a later part of them plot has them be inexplicably stronger, so nothing we can do about that.

I can't put my finger on it, but it feels weird. How did this happen? Assuming the letter really predicted this scenario, how did they know? Or did the letter refer to something else entirely?

http://i.imgur.com/8N7kRcc.png

Alright.

Turns out break is already pretty much over so Kud's request had to wait until next break.

Alright, so unless there's a particular demand for a certain person, I think I'll pick whosever route I'm currently doing. Is that fine?



So that's it for today. Next time we'll be serving lunch and hopefully dinner too, I guess. I'll try to move this Let's Play along more quickly for now, as I will most likely be forced to put it on hiatus for a while on July 17th. I'll be gone for a week, back for two days, then gone for another two weeks. I'm not sure if I will have any opportunity to continue the LP while I'm gone.

Last time we stopped right as Kud asked us who should be her roommate. Since it's most likely going to be Rin whose path we go through first, I picked her.

Honestly, having someone scream "WAFU!" directly behind you when you think you're alone would be pretty damn scary.

So Riki has to help the two communicate...

Ah smurf. I don't like this minigame. Mostly because when I first played it, it was over before I even scored a single point. If you spend too long doing nothing, the game just ends, and since I had no idea what I was doing, it ended just about instantly.

I couldn't really spare the time to take screenshots during the minigame because time is short. Let me try to describe it: you have four trays at a time and they constantly have ingredients put on them (about three per second). You have to wait until a dish is identical to one of the three meals you're preparing, then click on it.

The catch is that Masato, Kengo, Rin and Kyousuke apparently have no idea when to stop because if you don't click on a ready meal IMMEDIATLY they screw it up. So in the end I basically just go round clicking all the trays in some kind of rhythm and mostly hope for the best. With a bit of practice you can even do well.

I got 31 points which isn't that bad.

http://i.imgur.com/kvFrZv6.png

I got a Mission Clear! so it can't have been too bad.

If you pick "Back to the cafeteria" here you are locked out of Mio's route. It also locks away a couple of interesting Mio scenes in the next few days, so I'll pick "Keep staying here".

There's no such limit with [IMG] tags. Well, it goes up to 310 anyways.

Alright, so last time we saw the head of the disciplinary committee, a girl with really scary eyes. Now let's continue, and maybe finish up, searching for a roommate for Kud.

Anyways, did she come here for Kud or what?

She just never changes her expression. It's a little creepy.

Glad to be of one mind here Riki. If that's what they decided, that's okay. There's no real reason to assume this wouldn't work out, anyways.

So let's get over to baseball practice... but on the way there, Riki stops in the courtyard.

And so it begins again...

http://i.imgur.com/ncUCObn.png http://i.imgur.com/vjC7uOF.png

Huh? I hit a cat (completely by accident of course) and Rin threw a really weird ball at me.

http://i.imgur.com/raN4U0j.png

Yeah, it curved.

http://i.imgur.com/S9cvw3w.png http://i.imgur.com/afXOT5Z.png

Of course it is, Kyousuke. Of course it is.

http://i.imgur.com/C6ohBaS.png

So basically Rin can, from now on, learn new pitches if she gets mad. I think one per practice session is the maximum.

Or to put it in a less friendly way, the game just gave you a reason to hit cats during baseball practice. Don't worry, you can try not hitting them all you want. You will hit them, inadvertedly.

Case in point...

As you can see, Kurugaya joins us on the fields. If you hit the ball close enough to her, she literally teleports right over to it, catches it, and throws it back. She's mostly immobile and just stands around, though, so this isn't quite that simple.

Anyways... take a guess what happened a bunch of times.

So~orry Rin-chan. She's still quite no-con so her balls come flying towards me every now and then, but they can be dodged. She still hit me once. Her Raging Meow Balls and Purrves aren't that easy to hit, but with a bit of practice it's quite manageable.

I assume it will be quite to your liking. After all, with your assumed implicit vote for Rin, she won the vote for first path to go through.

I think I will be able to get Part 12 out before the 26th. After that until the 9th of August, I really have no idea if I could get anything done.

It seems like there is a lot of effort that goes into these. I'm liking Kud in the visual novel so far (at chapter 9) and Mio/Komari still aren't working for me here. I'm enjoying how closely the anime is following so far.

This is still my favourite scene though, despite the Komari hate.

Edit - Spent like 2 hours catching up from Chapter 6-10. That'll teach me to fall behind.

Why thank you, Mr. Shauna. Komari is my least favorite heroine, but I still like her. IMO her character route was way too early in the anime, before you could even get to know her. We'll get there eventually. That's also where I can get more into why I really prefer the visual novel over the anime.

I do like Mio though. She has that incredibly calming aura. Plus, her character themes is one of my favorites.



So what exactly did we end on last time? A black screen. Or shall we say, a narcolespy attack.

They seem so friendly together. Had Rin gotten over her shyness I'm sure they'd have been fine roommates.

Either way, why were they out here together in the first place?

Called it.

Riki goes to get some food and we skip ahead to nightfall. Take a guess what's up.

Okay, wait. How are we supposed to hear or see Kengo's battle, much less know it even happens? The mic was attached to Rin, was it not?

http://i.imgur.com/anLiS8i.png

...I give up. Either Kyousuke had literally been planning to fight the lifeform, have Rin lose and then know that Kengo would fight it in her place...

Or he's just the kind of guy who likes installing mics on his friends for the lulz.

It's probably the latter.

http://i.imgur.com/zLpadLx.png

That's a legitimate question. Have you ever had that happen to you, where you suddenly noticed the presence of someone who never really stands out, and you notice that you never really speak to them, like, ever? And that it's probably the same for almost everyone else in class? It must be a strange realization.

By the way just in case you're confused by the reasoning: the number 1 in Japanese isichi, so with the A before that she builds Eiichi, which is an actual Japanese name.

I guess something to be thankful for in a visual novel like this, although I'm unsure if skipping these scenes has any long-term effects or changes dialogue later on... I don't know.

Anyways, of course I pick Butt in.

This sounds so pointless.

At least some people seem to be excited by the idea.

Don't ask me... Haruka has an even crazier mind than Kyousuke.

Scratch that, nobody has a mind as crazy as Kyousuke's.

Either way, the sword fight commences.

Hmm, yeah. Riki was saved from depression because Kyousuke invited him into that group. Quite a lucky turn of events for him, wasn't it. I suppose Riki just wants to give others the same chance.

The game keeps reminding me that I need to remake the first few parts of this LP. In retrospect they have quite a different style from the rest of it and I'm not proud of how they turned out. I left out way too much. I'll probably redo them after Chapter 1 ends.

You might want to grab a bag of donuts before reading this part. Mmmh... donuts.



So last time we found Aikawa, our lovesickness patient, and resolved to call Haruka by her first name from now on. Also, we finished off Saturday, May 19th, and so...

Since we're gonna go through Rin's route, might as well go with her.

Yeah, it's basically just a pick-and-choose-who-gets-stat-ups. Since I picked Rin, maybe I can beat Sasami's minions next time.

I think it's fairly obvious whose voice that is, even if you can't hear it, isn't it?

There's only one person who apologizes like that.

http://i.imgur.com/RyeQsVb.png

...this choice actually has a long-term effect. But you don't want to know what that is...

For now I just went with the top option, the basic donut. I'll go with the others in subsequent playthroughs.

A nice little pre-dinner snack. Sounds good.

Tee hee. Now you get to enviously watch as the others still have donut.

http://i.imgur.com/a81MhfD.png http://i.imgur.com/PPAIevB.png

Maybe he just heard Komari praising the plain donut and rolled with it. That reminds me though, donuts aren't common in Japan, are they?

So, skipping ahead until after dinner...

Okay, so short version of what happened, Rin was feeding her cats and apparently offered something to Sasami as well, which she took as an insult. Really, do they need any reason to be fighting at this point?

So that's the end of this part. Turns out I was able to get all of Sunday May 20th into one part after all. I really appreciate this day, honestly. The Little Busters are basically a family for Riki, and it's nice to just see them interact and live their lives like that.

Next time, another week begins. See you then.

Me neither. But I do want to. Kurugaya is a fascinating person.

So that does it for now. Next time we may or may not recruit a new member for our baseball team, and you may or may not be able to guess who it is ahead of time. So much mystery!



The common route ends on May 26th, so we're over halfway there. Personally I'm looking forward to getting to the character routes.

In related news, Planetarian (http://store.steampowered.com/app/316720) is about to be released on Steam! If this does well enough, there's a chance that more visual novels, Key or not, get an overseas release at last. So if you're a nice person and wish to help this cause and/or you're interested in a Key visual novel that takes between 2-4 hours to read through, you may consider buying this for just ten dollars.



So last time we talked to Kurugaya over a cup of tea and she expressed her confusion at how Masato and Kengo are friends despite them constantly fighting.

For now, I guess Riki is a bit worried about Mio again.

Somehow Mio manages to make you look at many things in a different light. I like it.

Meaningless resistance... still better than not doing anything... it might be.

Oh no, it's actually quite fascinating. It makes me think about things.

I think I know who it is already.

I like how she's now called Haruka instead of Saigusa in the name box, in accordance to Riki now calling her by her first name.

http://i.imgur.com/2AhoXNv.png http://i.imgur.com/FHQR46L.png http://i.imgur.com/ppbmkuD.png

There's only one thing Haruka flees from like that.

Haha, Kud in the battle rankings. This is going to be cute.

Alright, I'll call it here. I'm writing this literally 15 minutes before Planetarian releases and I'm going to buy it as soon as it hits the store.

Next time we're gonna start locking ourselves out of routes. It's not necessary - since locking yourself into Rin's route takes priority over all other characters - but if I don't do it now I'll probably never be able to show these scenes later on, and going with the other option serves as a nice buildup towards the character route itself, so I'll be showing those when we get to the character in question. See you then.



Although I'm starting to wonder if anyone is still reading these.

Well it's been a while. At this point I'm wondering if I should continue this LP or not. University started again so my free time has been cut down by a lot but the lack of updates is mostly due to a lack of motivation. I love Little Busters, it's one of my all-time favorites and I would continue this Let's Play, but not if it's just talking to myself the whole time.

So I'll ask; do you want me to continue this LP? I would be glad to, if there was interest. If there is none, I'll let it die.
