Announcement Regarding Anime Release Delay and Change in Directors

Mar. 26, 2019

To all the backers of the Kud Wafter Anime Movie: A “Little Busters!” 10th Anniversary Spin-Off Project, thank you so much for your cooperation and support in making this project a reality.

We were planning to announce our plans for this anime movie in September 2019, but due to a rise in the number of anime being produced, we’ve had a hard time maintaining the schedule with our staff, making it hard to produce content that is of a satisfying quality in such little time.

In order to preserve the anime’s quality, we have cooperated with J.C.STAFF to update the following schedule and organization.

[Expected Reward Shipping Period]
September 2019 → September 2020

[Change in Directors]
The director has changed as a result of a production revision.
Yoshinobu Yamakawa → Kentaro Suzuki

Director Suzuki has worked on Little Busters! and Little Busters! Refrain, the original works which inspired the Kud Wafter spin-off. He is well-versed in the series and has deep affection for it.

  • Little Busters! and Little Busters! Refrain - Storyboard and Episode Director
  • IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls - Assistant Director
