>And finally, before I continue on to what I actually liked about the game, it’s worth noting that the game is the mess that it is due to Key staff such as Itaru being involved with the planning process from the beginning – in other words, Romeo is not to blame for any of the game’s shortcomings. In fact, it’s quite the opposite – if not for Romeo’s involvement with the project, Rewrite would almost certainly have been an utter disaster instead of the only Key game I’ve been willing to play from beginning to end. However, it must also be stated that there are several points, most notably Kotori’s route, where Romeo seems to have been trying to match his style to Key’s, resulting in… less than favorable results, shall we say. An easy way of describing the problem would be that Key and Romeo are both cancelling out what makes the other one good. I don’t think this problem really extends far outside of Kotori’s route, though, so it’s not nearly as much of a concern as the problems with the overall composition are.

The only way you can truly appreciate Romeo's works are if you read them in Japanese. Both translations are pretty terrible. To quote Moogy-dono-heika-sama himself:

>Cross+Channel – Anyone who attempts this is doomed to weep inconsolably throughout, filled with self-hatred as Romeo’s beautiful words are disfigured by their very own hands. I would probably commit suicide before finishing.

>>
>>100465012
It's going to follow the anime in means of setting, as in there will still be all the main characters and the VN will take place at the same time as the trainwreck of an anime. It just will show different stories in the perspective of each and every character. If I'm not mistake, I believe I read that there are going to be around 15-19 arcs. I loved AB, it just had too many plot holes and so much potential.

Rewrite was largely disliked when it was translated, but people don't shitpost nearly as much nearly as much, despite Japan also considering it the worst Key work and despite everyone expecting a Key true route and getting CrossChannel 2.0.

I'd like to see what makes LB's side routes so weak, and why people don't consider Rin and Refrain to be that great. They don't seem much worse than some of the other Key praised side routes that often just have little to no remarkable characterization or interesting story from what I've seen. (Tomoyo and Kyou's routes.

It seemed like a shittier version of CC to me, actually.

Much like the final route in cross channel, the point of terra was to give his friends the world they deserved. However it didn't work in Terra because Kotarou never got his memories back, which made everything he did was for Kagari's sake instead. Which suffice to say, was extremely stupid. It would be like if Takeru in muv-luv didn't remember any of his memories.

They are incredibly irrelevant. Unlike Clannad's side routes, they don't try to develop a theme, and unlike Rewrite's, they don't attempt to develop the world/setting at all.
They're just a bunch of weird and often overdramatic crap about characters who play little to no role in the larger narrative.
>why people don't consider Rin and Refrain to be that great.
The deus ex ending, mostly.
It was fine in Clannad since you had to work your ass off for it, but in Refrain it's just handed to you once you make the correct choice at the very end.
It also has the not unexpected effect of cheapening everything that happened up to that point, especially the boys' sacrifice.
Little Busters is a pretty bad game, but it's still better than Kanon and still better than whatever nonsense AB is going to be.

Hi Kud
I would like you to remember that in Kudwafter, whenever Riki and Kud do the dirty, a certain darkness overwhelms their hearts and minds.

Kud remembers how she was chained in a cave, standing in a pool of her own filth, getting ravaged again, and again, and again. And she fears she may never experience it again.

Riki remembers that Kud’s first time wasn’t with him, but with several large, dark-skinned men and women. And he wonders if she’s really enjoying it.

>>100465614
>They are incredibly irrelevant. Unlike Clannad's side routes, they don't try to develop a theme, and unlike Rewrite's, they don't attempt to develop the world/setting at all.

Overcoming regrets, facing fears, adolescence, becoming stronger, not believing you're inferior and worthless, relying on friends, etc.
They're recurring themes in most of the routes up to Refrain. I didn't really see a thematic disconnect at all in Little Busters.

What larger role in the narrative did side route characters play in Clannad/Rewrite? If I recall correctly, they mostly just up and disappeared and were given little importance in After Story and Terra. There's the light orbs for Clannad, and the ending with the Rewrite girls at the end.
>>

the only side character who plays a role in Refrain is Komari. nobody gives a shit about the other girls

Rewrite is great because there's actual magic with defined mechanics and limits (such as they are) rather than vaguely-existent keymagic.

The anime is worse than the game.

>>100465802
>What larger role in the narrative did side route characters play in Clannad/Rewrite?
Are you kidding? Every single route in Clannad is about overcoming family hardship and accepting inevitable change.
>>
>>100463126
Exactly.

>>100465878
So it's the thematic aspect, and sounds pretty much equivalent to Little Busters.

The problem with LB's side routes is that they don't make any sense without knowing the twist. And no, completing refrain doesn't retroactively make them good.
That's stupid, but they would feel not as bad if played after refrain.

can Shiki kill key magic?

>>100465920
Except for the fact that Clannad actually has thematic significance, unlike Little Busters which is just "friendship is cool". Tell me, what message does Komari getting mindraped over her brother have? Or Midori's existence? Or Kud teleporting halfway across the world?
>>
>>100465972
Yes but it will come back anyway, with no explanation and regardless of Shiki's "permanent death" ability.

doesnt it come down to friendship?

>Komari getting mindraped
Overcoming tragedy.

>Midori's existence
Mio wishing she didn't exist and that Mio could take her place -> Riki wishing he wasn't born in Refrain. Riki helped Mio realize it's better to be born and he later must come to the same realization himself in Refrain's true end.

>Kud teleporting halfway across the world.
I assume you're referring to the gear. In the LB world, routes are completed once each girl fulfills their regrets. Kud's regret was to visit her mom before she died in Tebua. She couldn't have faced her fears without Riki's help. So you have the themes of facing regrets, and Riki later realizes in Refrain that it's more important to meet people even if they die than to despair and regret over them.

Half of them are typical Keymagic nonsense, which would be fine if the writing was better.
Mio's route is actually fine in this regard since Leo Kashida isn't a fucking moron like Tonokawa and Shirokiki.
Notice how it's Kashida and not the other two who got called back to work on AB.
>>
>>100466286
Komari's route is probably my favorite. Her relationship with Riki was really cute.
Too bad the anime really butchered her route. Like really badly.
>>
>>100466183
Clearly you don't know the difference between a "theme" and a "synopsis". Explaining what happens isn't a theme. A theme is some message that the author is trying to get across to the reader. "Friendship can make anything happen" is not a theme. "Overcome tragedy and you'll be happy" is not a theme. Whereas in Clannad you have actual adversity in regards to theme of family. There's no adversity on a grand scale in Little Busters. There's no message like there is in Clannad. Clannad spends every route reinforcing the same message, move on with your life, don't let the past hold you back, accept change and carry on and it's through learning this message in dozens of timelines that Tomoya is able to save Nagisa, Nagisa who died because of her connection to the town that was changing over time and becoming unrecognisable. Because things will always change but the past will still exist so long as you have your memories.
>>
>>100466338
How is reviving your dead wife "accepting change"?
See, this is why the nakige formula is terrible.
>>
>>100466196
I don't really remember much but I don't think in Kurugaya's route she had a 'problem' and I don't think much was resolved even after her route.
Kurugaya's route was pretty weird, especially when I first played it when I didn't know any spoilers.
>>
>>100466249
That's exactly what I'm saying, you can't understand the routes without knowing the secret of the world.
And I don't know about you, but it being explained afterwards doesn't make them retroactively good.
>>
>>100466392
>How is reviving your dead wife "accepting change"?
Because Nagisa's illness is born out of them being unable to accept change. Also, Tomoya does accept change after Nagisa's death when he becomes a father to Ushio, hence why that route gains him a light orb.
>>
whats the new LB game thats coming out with the BDs?

>>100466509
It's Key. What the fuck are you expecting? When Nagisa was ill as a child, Akio took her out into the woods and prayed she would be okay and his wish was granted and from that point on, Nagisa was bound to the city itself and as the city begun to change, Nagisa's condition deteriorated. The final nail in the coffin was when the clearing in the woods where she was saved was destroyed in order to build the hospital, though the irony being if she'd gone to the very same hospital to give birth her death might've been prevented.
