Time for a shitty spoiler free review of a shitty novel(Yes, that’s the attitude I’m going with).
STORY(Like there is one.)
The novel starts of at 19th of July after the events of Little Busters!. Most students have gone back home over summer, and only Kud, Riki, Kanata, and A-chan senpai remain of the original characters. Riki and Kud are also dating from the get-go. The boys’ dorm is being renovated, but some genius hits a water pipe and floods the whole lower floor. Kanata saves the boys from sleeping on classroom floors by allowing them to use the old vacant girls’ dorm, though that’s not technically true because Kud still lives there. Because there aren’t enough rooms for all the boys, Kud, red as a beet, asks Riki to live with her. Now if they were to be caught, all the boys would be kicked out.
[Man that sure sounds like a lazy reason to have a story filled with lots of loli porn.]
For like a week, the two live their lives happily doing nothing but eat and fuck like they’re on Game of Thrones. After that the writers thought the audience might get bored, so they decide to introduce another loli, a discount Kurugaya, and a girl too best for this sewage waste. We also learn that the city is holding a bottle rocket contest.
[I hope you like model rockets because that’s the main plot for about 75% of this riveting piece of literature.]
So our valiant heroes set out to make the best rocket that ever was, and at the same time Riki aims to add the new loli to his harem. Her mother objects out of fear for her daughter’s future as secondary loli. Well, the story moves in the exact way you’d expect it to, so they get to make their rocket.
[Now, everything up to this point was so fun that they gave you the option to read it twice before progressing to anything even resembling a Key game’s fecal matter.]
Guess what’s next, another fucking rocket of course. After that’s done, we’ve completed about 70-80% of the novel and made our way to the first thing that can be remotely considered spoilers, so I’ll stop here.
She was always lolicon bait, but it wasn’t so bad when mixed with all the other little busters. This time it’s the same Kud but higher concentration.
I guess this Riki might be a bit lewder than before, but LB! Riki did some crazy shit too. They’re also not very clear about this, but I don’t think this is post-refrain Riki. He acts/thinks more like normal Riki.
Honestly, I can see people thinking she’s a cool character, but she really didn’t do it for me. She just felt like an awkward combination of Kurugaya and Haruka.
Because they definitely needed another loli. Shiina is basically made to be a younger version of Kud, and that’s her whole gimmick.
Shiina’s older sister. She has criminally little screen time. She’s more on the level of A-chan senpai than the other originals. She also works as a maid and flat out turns down the Diki, so Best Girl.
Kanata & A-chan Senpai
They both have very little screen time, and most of that is spent making lewd jokes at A-chan senpai’s expense. It does however seem that A-chan senpai’s family name is Amano, though it’s not confirmed.
I’m not a music savvy guy, so I can’t say much other than I don’t have any real complaints other than the atrocious opening. I really like Breath of Stars which is also the first track you hear ingame.
I’m not particularly fond of Kud, so I’m obviously not the target audience for this.However, I gravely underestimated how few things KW has to bring other than Kud. An unfathomable amount of this game is Kud talking about food and rocket science. Just as a text, it’s unbelievable boring to read. There is so much technobabble that I could zone out for minutes while reading. Not to mention how many times they remind you of the other little busters, and how they are not there to make things interesting. As a story, it’s very cookie cutter. Pretty much the first thing that comes to your mind when presented with a situation will happen. It’s some of the most generic plot I’ve seen. Coupled with the strain from reading in Japanese, this was a true chore to finish. Btw, the version of RealLive this is made in does not cooperate well with text hookers. I would never have bother with this thing if it wasn’t for the satisfaction of having read all Key novels in some form. I can’t recommend it to anyone but the most hardcore of Kud fans who also like spending hours on end reading about aerodynamics and rocket building. Worse than that, there is nothing but the technobabble in here that isn’t presented in other Key novels. For goodness sake, save yourself the pain and suffering; a bullet to the forehead is merciful!
Score: 15 golden loli sex scenes
