Little Busters! brings out a fifth CM as its debut nears – yet no differently than the previous few, this latest clip seems to simply incite the thought that perhaps, watching this series may be much worse than torture.
The 16 seconds spent on viewing the video below feel to have been an unbearable eternity in retrospect – as if they didn’t transpire painfully enough. Contained within, the flaws are nothing new – yet to see them is akin to experiencing a hurricane coming through, no matter how much one may readily anticipate, or have gone through this tragedy, it’s not any less catastrophic or disturbing.
A Flash animation could have been better – the characters seen within this promotional clip move like cardboard cutouts being piloted by a puppeteer, and similarly, they’re just as stiff. As one can notice, the characters rarely move even when the situation calls for it – and when they do actually make a motion, their joints pivot in a manner abrupt, awkward, and unnatural. People are not so dense that they stand like statuettes when not directly engaging in any action – yet it seems when a studio has low standards, there’s little regards for common sense.
Adding insult to injury, the concluding segment of the short CM shows what is no more than a still frame being panned across – implying that such is what one should expect come the series premiere, practically spitting in the face of many who admire Little Busters.
One might as well call off the search and rescue team, as there’s seemingly no longer any realistic chance of finding a single degree of enjoyment from this upcoming series.
