Little Busters! has received a second PV, as if not satisfied with the self-induced embarrassment this anime series has brought upon itself, it once again attempts to show itself off publicly – a commendable effort at least.
Up until approximately the first 10 seconds of the clip below, one will be showered with a flashing variety of scenes, of which most seem to be of the already established “awful” quality – yet there’s also a few split seconds of more promising moments, albeit “promising” being in comparison to the lowly bits, which doesn’t say much. The overall display appears less than average – yet within these mere 10 seconds, a light of hope for an average anime series did see the opportunity to kindle.
Unfortunately however, the intercession of the jagged MS Paint reminiscent running scene shatters everything – it’s plain incomprehensible, no matter how much contemplation one may pour into reasoning, the purpose why this single scene is slapped throughout every video preview of this series.
Whilst not many, Little Busters! definitely has more captivating exhibits to show – its repertoire of video promos do indeed contain perhaps a second here and there which manage to entice in one way or another, yet for some reason, we receive this run cycle instead, which of course isn’t a favorable sign of expectation at all.
If anything, this recurring usage of a lacking scene tells us that this series will be repetitive – and the remainder of the PV, which one may notice is predominantly material from all the previously released CMs and PVs, only works to affirm the worst. Furthermore, this PV shows the different characters enjoying their lives to a slow motion effect, intended to cover up the frigid animation – although rather than the desired outcome, it seems to have had an opposite result.
Ultimately, to refrain from being too harsh on the series, one can merely shake their head in sorrow.
