Rewrite anime when?
This was one hell of a ride. It took me completely by surprise since I went in expecting a typical Key novel and ended up with some serious mindfuckery.
Do you have any VNs you want to see adapted well into anime form?
I have a hard time seeing how they'd animate the individual routes, they managed Little Busters decently at that but I don't see it happening for this
Shizuru > Kotori > Chihaya > Yoshino > Akane > Lucia
It would be near impossible to make all of the routes mesh together, especially since all of them end in drastically different scenarios. It's not really possible to loop back from something like pic related.
It would need to be either omnibus or a mashup of all the routes and those never seem to go well. But still, I want to see it happen somehow. That fully animated OP in Moon got me hungry for more.
I went through the last episode of Air(not the OVAs) and found some very rewrite looking scenes.
Thanks for pointing this out, anon, whoever you are.
Omnibus format would work, something like Higurashi. Let's say common route until episode 18-10 and the rest for each girls routes. Then comes Moon and Terra in the next season.
It would be great if it was done competently. The content in Moon would also hit a hell of a lot harder if they went that way.
Hopefully never. Little Busters barely worked so Rewrite would be even worse.
I'd be up for just common route and Harvest Festa hijinks though.
Once j.C was involved the question moved from "How good is it gonna be?" to "How shitty is it gonna be?"
This all the way.
They fucked up and changed so many crucial parts of the VN it wasn't even funny.
You're not gonna get KEY stuff frmo Kyoani anymore since they're apparently too busy with faggotshit and crappy LN adaptations.
To be honest, JC Staff has made some good adaptations, like Toradora, Azumanga, Joshirakuor the first season of Nodame. Ultimately it became down to director and he's done nothing but absolute shit. Especially the music direction was just horrible, it's like he never even read the source material.
What works as VN doesn't necessarily work as anime. This kind of theme especially. Studios have nothing to do with it since I doubt any of them would have been able to come up with decent adaptation.
G Senjou no Maou would be pretty cool. I finished it last night and goddamn it was amazing.
This. And yeah Shizuru truly a best. Best Key Girl
But that's not Kotori.
On the off chance that you're not trolling: No, they are open for projects outside their own line as well, they will work with Kadokawa for Amagi Brilliant Park. So it's up to rights holders and production committees if they want to animate Rewrite and hire KyoAni to do it.
You're right, Kotori isn't BKG.
Shake it now baby now~
What a skimpy bikini.
I disagree. Look at Clannad, I thought it worked very well as an anime adaptation because they had chosen the main heroine at the start of the and still animated a good bit of the other routes without Tomoya actually choosing any of them.
The only thing I could really complain about is that the anime fell short of explaining what was going on at the end of After Story.
G Senjou is on my backlog, I'll probably get to it here in the next month or two. I hear great things.
I loved Shizuru, but Kagari best girl.
It's too bad Shizuru got completely screwed at the end of her route. Seriously thought I had gotten the bad end when everyone started disappearing.
Depending on which Kagari you choose I might have to call you a faggot or other uncomfortable names.
It would need KyoAni, a high budget and shitloads of episodes. Perhaps Key could fund it with all the money they are about to print from AB but I doubt they will bother.
I have extremely high hopes for AB. I feel like most of the problems in the anime were caused by it only being one cour, and the VN is going to be more than long enough to fix that.
I want it animated so bad. PLEASE HAPPEN.
>yfw this played for the first time
>this game is said to be an eroge ill find out—
I wrote up a sort of series comp for the anime, because I've started to disagree with JC Staff's composition for it.
Key's arcs in Little Busters would feel more disjointed if they tried to do them the way they did in Clannad or Kanon. It's simpler to spread out the stories because the characters aren't all friends with each other. If you tried to handle multiple LB arcs at once, you'd run into complications and inconsistencies with the characters. It basically makes for the show feel fragmented every time a new arc starts. It's not a huge issue in VNs.
I think that ideally, they should've done Little Busters (not including EX here) in 3 sections, with a lenient episode count.
Little Busters! - mostly common route material, making the heroines AND bros prevalent, laying the ground for the heroine routes, the baseball game, and prepping character enjoyment for the routes.
Little Busters!: S2 - heroine routes in succession, with small slice of life segments between them, if possible/necessary. I think romance should be done similar to Kanon, with hugs included. Rin being a focus to help alongside RIki could also work well in some cases, but I think Masato/Kengo/Kyousuke should serve as the guides/helpers for Riki moreso than the other girls, as their aid in each others' arcs might feel a bit artificial. I think the route order should be Komari->Haruka->Mio->Kud->Kurugaya, to ease into the Key supernatural prevalence in a way that doesn't feel daunting. Rin 1 with Riki passing out at the end might be another good way to end it, rather than with the end of Kurugaya's arc. They should also keep it clear that Riki is unaware of the world looping, but that there is some fishy multiple timeline stuff that isn't being directly explained to the audience. This preserves the important parts of the Secret without hamfisting foreshadowing like JC Staff did, and gets people to speculate on what's going on with Riki helping each girl.
Little Busters!: Refrain - Now we move onto Rin's route and the Refrain arc. A new season with a new focus on entirely the main 5
Little Busters should be good to prioritize Rin over the other heroines, and remove some awkwardness with Riki being with Rin now
rather than the other heroines. Also, the cliffhanger and time resets demonstrated in the previous season should, with the fresh start
with the new season shouldn't make it too bad.
I also think bad ends such as Kud's and Haruka's bad end should be done as cliffhangers prior to the final episode of each of those arcs, with Riki waking up the next episode, then making better decisions to properly end off each arc to reach the good end. Komari's and Mio's bad ends might be okay with some changes.
I think that by design, LB's routes shouldn't have been spread out the way JC Staff did. They don't work the same way Kanon's did, yet
they attempted to go a similar route. The Little Busters is a group that interacts with each other and gets together on a regular
basis, so suddenly stopping this to do a girl's arc in the middle of a season, then making everything turn back to normal, just screws it up, pacing-wise.
There should be enough memories among the girls from the common route season so that the route endings and closeness among the characters can be referenced in the sequel seasons.
I think keeping the closeness between the heroines in the first season, between Riki and each girl as an individual and part of the team in the second, and then the 3rd season to tear everything apart would work well. I think partitioning the seasons rather than having shifts within a season should work a lot better for any audience.
Shizuru is the best girl.
Whoever does Rewrite, they better throw movie quality budget into it.
>G senjou no maou
I still raged hard thing what I feared turn out to be true.
Kyousuke is not maou
Lucia's route was so good. So many great scenes.
But damn, the suffering was intense in that one.
Nice to know they had this entire 'planet memory' thing in their heads over a decade ago.
I was confused as to what he was doing when his head hut at the arena scene and other places if he wasn't Maou. Also I had no idea why Maou didn't continue with the plans in the other routes, it was really odd.
But she was so boring anon
In other route is supposed that he found his peace of mind (getting love), so his plan is canceled. My assumption is, Kyousuke is really the maou in all chapter except the last chapter.
How to adapt Rewrite into a anime.
Start out with the beginning of Moon, it ends with Kagari and Kotarou's first conversation and she kills him and it goes to him remembering one of the lives he lived.
Start the common route, Kotarou triggers everyone's flags and after the big forest event, it cuts back to Moon Route, Kotarou respawns and goes on about how he remembers all these different lives he has lived and gets killed by Kagari again and he remembers a different route.
Route order Kagari -> Sakuya -> Lucia -> Shizuru -> Akane
Then finish off Moon and start Terra.
Lucia's route will need to dip back into the common route a bit, considering her route has a different starting point.
Kotori* -> Sakuya
This would be really, really good. I can't think of a better way to do it.
Or they could do it in a series of OVA's with different studio's doing each OVA.
Common Route - White Fox
Kotori - KyoAni
Chihaya - Madhouse
Lucia - Bones
Shizuru - Gainax
Akane - Production I. G.
Moon - Shaft
Terra - Ufotable
Oppai - Xebec
>Oppai - Xebec
Its honestly the best way to do it if they do a TV anime, omnibus is pretty boring but this lets all the routes have some continuity behind them.
Because shitty writing.
Also, they tried pushing him as Maou so hard the twist became blatantly obvious as soon as they mentioned his brother
Well, omnibus is usually bad, but the latter parts of Moon can tie it all together quite nicely if they manage to pull it off. Kotarou dies a lot of times before he makes any real progress with Kagari, so they could make those times the flashbacks. By saving most of the content in Moon for after they're finished with all of the heroine routes, we'd have a few episodes of the various things Kotarou experiences in Moonland and then have the gang reunite.
Working Terra in after that would be a bit difficult though.
Requesting info on which writer wrote which route.
Kotori, Akane, Moon and Terra = Romeo
Lucia = Ryukishi07
Sakuya and Shizuru = Tonokawa.
Tonokawa should just stop writing.
Kotori, Akane, Moon & Terra - Romeo Tanaka
Chihaya & Shizuru - Yuuto Tonokawa
Lucia - Ryukishi07
>Top tier girl
>The LEAST best route
Stop that, Tonokawa. Stop it.
No wonder I liked Kotori and Akane the most.
Terra would need to be handled with extreme care, they have to portray Kotarou is making odd decisions and why he is doing so.
They could explain a bit more of the what goes on in Terra on the moon, but not enough to give it away.
I haven't read Air but is this anime original?
Also, I don't see the OVA characters (ryuuya Kana) on vndb, are they original as well? The OVA was so much better than the TV series.
Yeah, thankfully he's not touching Angel Beats.
Ryukishi07 wrote the best fight scenes.
Shizuru had more screen time in other routes then any other heroine, so take some solace in that.
Shizuru vs Akane was amazing, but I honestly like Kotarou vs the Earth Dragon more.
Who's doing AB?
Not that I'm expecting much, I can't dig the setting at all.
>>Do you have any VNs you want to see adapted well into anime form?
>like Kotarou vs the Earth Dragon more.
>Rewrite starts playing
>Fade to black
That was a big slap to the face. What's up with that?
I personally rank Shizuru vs Akane higher than Kotarou vs the Earth Dragon. If these two should be animated faithfully and with precision details, the former would be the most awe-inspiring visually.
Shaft tier trolling
I get why they skipped the second fight, but it made them seem incredible lazy. Rewrite was missing a lot of sprites and CG's and suffered for it.
Seriously why the fuck didn't Takasago get a sprite or CG? There was what fights with the guy and we don't know what he looks like other then a description, it turned what could have been a amazing fight into a chore.
Kai, co-writer of Clannad who worked on Kappei and Yukine Miyazawa's routes.
Leo Kashida, who worked on Mio's route, Tomoyo After.
Jun Maeda is the lead writer, and for the first time in Key history, he's going to actually be revising and touching up the work of other writers. I think the arcs should turn out a lot better than Little Busters, and should be more consistent overall. It seems like Jun Maeda really wants to make Angel Beats his own.
I think he had a larger vision with Angel Beats, especially with the main character. Otonashi is the only male character aside from Kyousuke to have their own OST, yet he was pretty neglected as a character, and one of the first things Maeda announced was characterization improvements for him in the VN.
I dunno. I disliked half of the female cast of Kanon in the anime and liked them a lot more in the VN, so I'm hoping the AB VN will improve things a lot overall. It just screams potential with lack of development, as far as Key works go.
>Rewrite was missing a lot of sprites
There was what 4 fights with the guy*
How come Naoi is so cute?
When are homosex routes getting added? I don't think they're going to come in the first volume
I think overall Terra was a big disappointment. I mean the buildup in Moon and the other routes was crazy.
>Do you have any VNs you want to see adapted well into anime form?
Since I just finished Chaos;Head, I'm gonna have to say Chaos;Head. If it was every properly adapted it would be fucking amazing.
Also is the Underwaterrayromano adaptation any good?
I don't think Terra is a disappointment per say, but it was a little underwhelming. They didn't even hide how rushed it was with a lot of CG art for it.
Of course it was never designed to be the penultimate route, it just became it from what I heard so that could explain some things.
Moon was the absolute high point of the VN for me. I knew when I finished reading it that Terra wasn't going to compare because it was just that good.
>Underwaterrayromano adaptation any good?
Shizuru vs Sakuya was also a cool fight. It's seriously amazing how Shizuru can even fight against Sakuya like she did. I think she's the only heroine who can do that. I wish there was YT link of that fight.
Sakuya > Kotori > Akane >= Shizuru = Lucia(Mall date) > Kagari(Moon) > Chihaya > Kagari(Earth) > Lucia (after date)
* > Lucia (after date) > Shiroutaru (after date)
Now it's perfect.
God damn ti Ryuukishi you can't just make your protagonist denser than a star out of nowhere.
>Do you have any VNs you want to see adapted well into anime form?
To be honest the OVAs weren't actually bad.
But not even the worst J.C. Staff and Madhouse adaptation combined is as bad as the OVAs. It lacked any kind of budget despite being an OVA.
EnA deserves better.
Is nobody translating Little Busters EX! OVAs?
Refrain subs is waiting for a proper BD source.
