Sentai Filmworks Licenses Little Busters EX
HOUSTON, August 3, 2016 – Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its acquisition of Little Busters EX. Adapted from the visual novel Little Butsters! Ecstacy, this eight-episode OVA series expands on one high school boy’s adventures into a world that isn’t always what it seems to be.
This reimagining of the Little Busters storyline pits protagonist Riki Naoe against familiar faces such as Saya Tokido, a treasure hunter in hiding from an elusive group known as the Dark Executives, and Kanata Futaki, young chairwoman of the so-called "Public Morals Committee" who seems to have a sinister agenda of her own.
Little Busters EX was directed by Yoshiki Yamakawa (Little Busters!, Hatsukoi Limited), with series composition by Michuru Shimada (Little Busters!, Shugo Chara!). J.C. Staff, the same studio that produced Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, A Certain Magical Index, and Golden Time, helmed animation production.
