It looks like Riki has managed to successfully reassemble most of the original Little Busters. He’s still missing Kyousuke, but I’m assuming the point is to make a Little Busters without his help. But Kengo knows as much as Masato. So, when he said that he’d protect Riki and Rin forever…did he mean to bind them to this infinite time loop so they’d remain kids? That’s actually quite sinister.
What an interesting scene at the end…with Kyousuke pretty severely injured. Does this have to do with the “disappearance” of everyone else? It sure looks like it. Four episodes left…either they tackle Kyousuke or they actually find out the secret of the world. Apparently, the world is going to end soon…sounds pretty dramatic.
