Great Podcast! I enjoyed hearing some of the history of the early days of visual novel translations.
I think one of the reasons the Little Busters work so well as a group is because each and every single one of its members gets something they lack on their own from it. Be it because they’re loners, or have no close friends, or no place to be themselves in, or never having experienced that pure thoughtless fun. What really makes the Little Busters so special is that it forms a place for people like that.
