Wafu~ the anime is currently in the works according to Dengeki Bunko’s 34th episode of their web radio show. This is news I found out last night while watching Evangelion with my friends. Needless to say, I was ecstatic.
Then I wondered if Kyoto Animation was going to be behind the adaptation. Several seasons have went by with me anticipating another one of Key Visual Art’s works being translated into anime form — obviously this meant several seasons of disappointment as I love Kyoto Animation’s visual novel adaptations. Key probably loved them too considering how long it took for a popular VN like Little Busters! to have an anime announced. As a player of visual novels myself, I will say that KyoAni is one of the best when it comes to doing a VN anime right.
But not to my surprise, Kyoto Animation is not in charge of the Little Busters! anime whatsoever. I guess several seasons of disappointment turned out to be a good shock absorber.
Let’s hope that the studio (currently unknown) that’s in charge of the Little Busters! anime knows what it’s doing and will create a good anime out of it. While I’m disappointed that it didn’t end up being in the hands of the studio I have 100% faith in when it comes to visual novel adaptations, what matters the most is that the studio it is in the hands of knows what it’s doing. Preferably not J.C.Staff or Toei.
