MVM Entertainment to Release Little Busters on Blu-ray & DVD Within the UK


MVM Entertainment continues to surprise fans by quietly announcing new additions to their anime catalogue; as during the weekend MVM confirmed that they will be releasing J.C. Staff’s anime adaptation of Little Busters on Blu-ray and DVD within the UK.

As it stands the series will be released in two half-season-sets, just like they were in America and Australia, on both Blu-ray and DVD starting from February 2017. Specific release date details have yet to be confirmed but judging from it’s over-seas release each set will feature around 12/13 episodes and be presented in both English and Japanese audio – with the audio produced by Sentai Filmworks.

Synopsis: When tragedy struck Riki Naoe as a child, he was rescued from grief over his parent’s deaths when four other kids “recruited” him for their group – the “Little Busters.” Now in high school, Riki and the other Busters are still fast friends, and though their vision of being heroes for justice may have faded, they’d still do anything for each other. Which is why Riki is now on TWO special missions. The not so secret one: recruiting new members so the Busters can form a baseball team. Preferably Female recruits, as the current dude/babe ratio is an inconvenient 4 to 1.

The Other mission though, that’s the strange one. Because Riki and Rin, the group’s singular girl, are receiving odd messages, delivered by cats, concerning the existence of a “secret world” and assigning them tasks they have to complete. Were their youthful dreams of being crusaders not so fanciful after all? Or is there something even more vital at stake? Between steeling his courage to talk to girls and dealing with his own narcolepsy, Riki may just need the strength of a superhero to solve the ultimate mystery of the Little Busters!

Little Busters will be available on Blu-ray and DVD in two separate half-season-sets starting from February 2017; and we expect that further release date details will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
