The Little Busters Bookclub was a mission to unite the community in reading through Little Busters together to celebrate its launch on Steam in English!
Forum topics were provided for readers to discuss each route as they read through, with prizes up for grabs each week for the best discussion. At the end of each week, a select few of the Kazamatsuri community assembled to record a podcast discussing that week’s route, using the forum discussion and Key Points posted in each topic to guide the conversation. We are also used the Bookclub and Hype Van to encourage our more creative members to produce fanart and other fanworks to celebrate the series, with prize packs for our most talented!
