Rewrite is a fantasy romance Visual Novel developed by Key and published by Visual Arts in 2011 for the PC. It is Key’s 8th visual novel, following the success of Air, Clannad and Little Busters! Many key members of the staff return to produce the new game, including Itaru Hinoue (Air, Clannad) who once again helmed the project. Jun Maeda (Clannad, Angel Beats!) also returned to compose the music of the game, but did not write any of the scenarios.
Rewrite is set in the fictional city Kazamatsuri where treeplanting and afforestation have caused the city to become overgrown with trees and flowers in much the same way that other cities are filled by buildings. However, while most of the city appears to be rural, there are many traditional city elements as well. While set in a modern setting, the city also gives off a strange sense of nostalgia.
Tennouji Kotarou lives here. He’s a high school student who has the ability to rewrite his own body; he can become stronger and faster at any time he chooses. He investigates supernatural mysteries with five girls from his school.
A visual novel from key that will be turned into an TV anime adaptation. Key is known for their success of their visual novel of Clannad, Air, and Little Busters!
The announcement was from the last episode of Charlotte, so maybe P.A. Works will take up as being the producer of Key’s ‘Rewrite’. I don’t know the story of Rewrite because I haven’t played the visual novel yet. But judging from the PV, I think that there’s some supernatural genre mixed in the story. But I heard certain people say that Rewrite has a good story. Well, we’ll know it in the release of the anime adaptation, that is if they follow the story of the visual novel correctly.
The TV anime adaptation is currently on production. There are no release dates yet that are announced. So all we can do is to keep on waiting for more announcements.
