I was preparing myself to hate on this show. But you know what? I actually liked the first episode.
The main factor in its favor is that it actually has a decent sense of humor. I laughed more in this episode than I did in the first episode of either Hayate or that pet show, which are both supposedly comedies. Plus, Little Busters appears to have multiple male characters who actually matter, which may be a good sign in a Key series. Hopefully the harem will be divided between them…
With that said, this is still a Key series. It already looks like we’re in for some silly childhood melodrama. And it’s about baseball. I hate baseball.
And then there’s the Key heroines. This girl hasn’t even said a word yet, but I already despise her. Ugh. But still, not bad for a Key show.
