Little Busters! and Little Busters! Ecstasy are visual novels developed by Key and published by Visual Art's in 2007 and 2008. The story follows Riki Naoe, a high school student and member of a close-knit group of friends who call themselves the Little Busters. It was adapted by J.C.Staff into two anime television series broadcast between 2012 and 2013, and an original video animation series to be released in 2014, directed by Yoshiki Yamakawa with music direction by Shinji Orito. The discography of Little Busters!, Ecstasy, and the anime adaptations consists of one compilation album, one EP, eight singles, three soundtracks, and five remix albums.

The core of the discography is the first two original soundtrack albums, one for Little Busters! and the other for Ecstasy. The soundtracks were produced by Key Sounds Label and released in 2007 and 2008. The music on the soundtracks was mainly composed and arranged by Jun Maeda, Shinji Orito, Magome Togoshi, Manack, and PMMK. The third soundtrack album is for the Little Busters! Refrain anime series. Five remix albums were released for the two games between 2007 and 2013. An EP for Little Busters! was released in 2008 covering three pieces of theme music used in the game as well as remix versions of those songs. A compilation album mainly containing previously released vocal tracks for the visual novels and anime adaptations was released in 2014. Eight singles were released between 2007 and 2013: a theme song single for Little Busters!; four image song singles covering the characters Rin Natsume, Saya Tokido, Kanata Futaki, and Sasami Sasasegawa; and three theme song singles for the anime series adaptations.

The album is otherwise composed, and produced by Jun Maeda and members of PMMK. The album came with the subtitle: "Little Busters! original arrange album". This album was released as a bonus item, included with the limited edition first printing of the PC version of the game released on July 27, 2007 by Key Sounds Label bearing the catalog number KSLA-0032.[1] As a result, it was not released for individual sale.
