Masato rejoining the team, Kengo’s got to join next, but this time drawing inspiration from what Kyousuke did won’t work…I don’t think Riki fighting Kengo’s father will make him join again.; especially when he’s so insistent on not rejoining.

It’s now very obvious that Refrain takes place in an alternate world, and that Riki and Rin are the only ones who don’t know about it. However, will retracing the footsteps that Kyousuke took when forming the little busters make a real difference to anything?
