It’s hard to believe that this season flew by so quickly. We’re only a few days away from releasing our final episode of Little Busters! ~Refrain~. The question I’ve been asked quite a lot lately have all been about our upcoming plans for next season – Winter 2014 and beyond that. My first response has always been, we’ll see when the time comes, but as you well know, that time is pretty much now. To be honest, I’ve been enjoying each week of subbing Little Busters! ~Refrain~ and I’m sure our team share the same sentiments. We may have our ups and downs, but it would be a blatant lie to say we didn’t gain any enjoyment out of what we have done this past season.
First of all, I would like to thank everyone for watching our subs and for giving us feedback, we started only several months ago and we have grown bigger over the course of the season. Without your support, we would not have been able to come together and sub all episodes of Little Busters! ~Refrain~ and the Little Busters! OVA.
Secondly, I would like to thank the rest of our team for sticking with us and for working together on each release. We had some weeks where we had less staff, but in the end we managed to get each release out.
Now onto our future plans, I’ve been discussing with our staff for the past few weeks about what we planned to do in the upcoming season after Little Busters! ~Refrain~ finishes airing. At first, we came together as a group to solely sub for Little Busters! ~Refrain~. We also thought that we would have to sub Little Busters! EX after the season ended. We still plan to do so but they will be released in a slightly different format since they are going to be bundled as an OVA with each of the BD volumes.
Our current confirmed future plans in no particular order include the following:
- Little Busters! ~Refrain~ Batch (Batch fixes after season ends.)
- Little Busters! ~Refrain~ BDs (As they come out.)
- Little Busters! EX (As they come out. Similar to our OVA release.)
- Website Move (WordPress is limiting, and having a dedicated WordPress site will give us more freedom.)
Some other plans we might have in the future include the following:
- Sub a show in the upcoming season (We’re up for taking some suggestions here.)
- Translate the game included with the first Little Busters! ~Refrain~ BD volume
In order to achieve some of our goals and stretch goals into the future, we are also officially looking for more staff members. Notably, we are looking for TLs for the upcoming season. If you would like to apply as a TL, just leave a comment below and we’ll try to get in contact with you as soon as possible.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
