Rewrite TV Anime Announced

rewrite1It’s been announced today that the VN Rewrite , from Key/Visual Arts of Clannad/Angel Beats! fame, will be getting an anime adaptation. The studio is 8-bit, which recently did the anime for the Grisaia no Kajitsu and Grisaia no Rakuen visual novels.

The only thing that surprises me about this is how long it took to happen.

Ryukishi07 wrote one of the game’s routes, working with Romeo Tanaka and Yuuto Tonakawa. He’ll be reuniting with the same two authors for his upcoming doujin work TRianThology.

Rewrite’s already on my “VNs to Play” list, though it’s 50+ hour playtime and reputation for a sloggy common route have kept it there for a while. If the anime succeeds as an adaptation (don’t want to relive my Umineko trauma!), I might end up committing sacrilege and watching it instead.
