This isn't a straight series where each episode connects to the next. It’s divided into 3 arcs. First we meet Saya Tokido. A girl who fights mysterious shadow people trying to find a mysterious treasure. This story takes place before the events of Refrain. Next we have Sasami Sasasegawa who for some reason changes into a cat that only Rikki can understand. These events occur after Refrain. Finally we meet Kanata Futaki, Haruka Saigusa's sister it takes place after Refrain. However the first half of her story does not start here it takes place before the events in Refrain. It ends here and takes place after the events in Refrain.

Little Busters EX revolves around story arcs featuring three girls from an updated release of the Little Busters! visual novel game called Little Busters Ecstasy in which Riki finds himself having to help each girl resolve their personal issue. Two of the three story arcs dabble into the same ridiculous fantasy element that was revealed in Refrain, while the last arc is the most grounded of the story arcs. Still, each have their issues in regards to unrevealed plot elements and/or going overboard with their melodrama like Refrain, that led me not to give much of a hoot about its developments. One thing I noticed is that there is actually a fair amount of fan service found at points throughout the OVA, this being more frequent in Saya's story arc. The content in question's actually pretty tame compared to other titles of its ilk that would go overboard with milking it, but I found it noticeable since Key anime adaptations typically skirt away from showing off their female characters in unclothed or nude attires like the original H-games they're based off of. Otherwise, Little Busters EX is mostly a treat for Little Busters fans as they'd be more interested in seeing the story arcs with the new female characters involved.
