Yup. Shout-out to The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat. (Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko.) anime series for the post title. Even though I didn’t watch it but I know it’s another show made by J.C. Staff, so I think it matches well with this series.
This is the beginning of Sasami’s route. It takes place after the events of Refrain so Riki knew everything about the secret of the world & everything is over… Or so we thought because something’s gonna happen with Sasami. How Riki will solve the issue is up to his experiences that he learned from the past events.
It’s sad that the route will be covered in 2 episodes rather than 4 episodes. It might be getting rushed but so far, this episode is decent. Really enjoyed it though.
#5: Sasami Turns Into A Cat (Mirrorcreator | Minitheatre)
Well, with this Saya’s route officially comes to an end. I didn’t get through this and the rest of EX routes in the VN so I couldn’t figure out the outcome of the events but still, the story was kinda sad but yet pretty enjoyable sometimes. The way how it unfolds until the end really intriguing though. Everything that Jun Maeda made goes well haha.
Next route will be Sasami’s. Apparently, the regular LB team members will return for action in the next episode. It’s been a while guys…
#4: Sometime, Somewhere… (Mirrorcreator | Minitheatre)
Riki & Saya’s ship is not sunken anymore. Anyone who enjoyed this so much?
This is like more than a heartwarming episode, so next episode will be the last one for Saya’s Route. Then, we can move on to Miss Sassy’s route, Sasami Sasasegawa is too long for me to pronounce it with too many ‘sasasesa’ thingy.
Well, One Week Friends is coming next…

Saya surely has a knack of expecting things too much until she forgets herself already.
I like how this EX series mostly focuses on Riki & Saya more than the other regular characters which means a possibility of their romance, but at least we’re able to see them in a glimpse, relieving the good old Little Busters! precious memories.
Also, this episode contains a creditless OP & ED so enjoy!
#2: The Two in the Labyrinth (Mirrorcreator | Minitheatre)
What’s up guys? The thing that you’re waiting for is finally here. Like I promised before, here’s the first English localized version of Little Busters! EX or Ecstasy. Unfortunately this isn’t for the VN but it’s an anime adaptation based on the EX routes from the VN. A big thanks to Refrain Subs for subbing this series. They had previously subbed the Refrain series.
The EX routes translation project are still underway though. I couldn’t read most of Japanese especially the kanjis & some complex words so I decided to watch the anime instead. Simply because it’s my 1st time experiencing EX, I had absolutely no idea about the pacing of the EX routes from the VN. This episode might be good but who knows… If I had read that part in the VN, I can simply compare both of them.
Anyway, I’m surprised Saya made her 1st episode appearance in this anime. I thought she would be the final part of EX simply because she’s the main highlight & the only character exclusively for EX. But oh well, after I’ve read the summary it made sense. Apparently Saya’s route takes place before the events of Refrain. Maybe it’s because J.C. Staff didn’t meant to confuse the viewers especially the anime-only viewers like me. But yo, Saya’s my favorite girl right now. Girl with guns never cease to amaze me.
I like the EX anime version of Little Busters! opening song but still, the original version is best hands down in my opinion. The animation is quite looking good for a home media release, just like we saw in Refrain series.
So grab your popcorns (wait, this ain’t a movie LOL) & enjoy Little Busters! Ecstasy as Saya is about to use her Evoker to summon her Persona and thus eliminate the Shadows during the Dark Hour…
Oops, wrong series…

#12: One Wish (Mirrorcreator | MT)
The accident was quite tragic, I was somehow felt sad about it. All those flashbacks & recollections, so sad they disappeared one by one. But apparently we didn’t have any chance to see Rin’s ending because J.C. Staff wanted to end it this Saturday. Well, the impact is much more less than the VN but it’s still quite good.
So I hope you enjoy this Christmas present from me. There’s more coming up, that’s why the title is numbered.
