Silent Sky is a combination of the additional episodes 13 and 14. It consists of the story in the future, three months after the incident that was similar to "New Generation Madness" and the disease Chaos Child Syndrome that brought by the past earthquake in Shibuya.
Just like the main anime series, this movie suffers from trying to adapt too much material from the visual novel into too little screen time. The movie is an adaptation of the True Ending of the visual novel, which just by itself is six hours long in the VN. Still, keeping in mind those time constraints, I feel this is a good adaptation.
As for the plot of the movie / True Ending, I quite enjoyed all the twist, the plot reveals, and the character development presented for both the main characters Serika and Takuru. It was also nice to have a villain that has his
own motives separate from the other main antagonists in the series.
I rate the C;C anime+movie as 8/10, and the VN as 10/10. It is not quite as great as Steins;Gate, but it is very close. I would definitely recommend playing the VN first and then watching the anime.
If you are someone who doesn’t like edgelord/shock value shlock, then stay far away from this series. This is the worst representation of visual novels ever, for those who think that visual novels are all over-the-top gross out fiestas with porn, i.e. Saya no Uta, then this series just reaffirms that bias.
• I don’t like negative representations of visual novels, most are bad, but sometimes they can be accurate representations of what it’s like to be stuck inside of your own head. If you like this series, you may enjoy the visual novel Sweet Pool. Wait, no, don’t play that! Chaos;Child feels smashed together
and hard to follow, probably because they took the gameplay of the visual novel and tried to abridge it as much as possible.
• There’s far too many characters to keep up with and too many plot points that are injected into its vein.I had to constantly remind myself of all of the plot points and logic that the show explainedーwhen going into each episode. Or else, I was just baffled and confused as to what was going on. The twist at the end, the climax, is probably the only interesting part of the show, but that also seems weirdly contrived.
• Chaos;Child is yet another example of a show that has some good ideas, but over-saturates itself with everything that SOUNDS cool, leaving viewers like me, who didn’t play the visual novel in somnambular confusion while there’s a heap of bile climbing up our throats. Oh, look, there’s a pretty twin-tail girl! Since she’s from a porn game, let’s have the most graphic scene of her pissing herself ever!
• The “movie”, if that’s what you want to call it. Is equally as confusing, more laughable, and has barely any semblance of a budget to stand on. Chaos;Child is a low peg in the Scientific semi-colon series, but that’s not really saying much. BUT Steins;Gate is really only the okay one, so far, and the anime lags where the visual novel succeeds.
• I have the Steins;Gate visual novel to thank for the many lucid dreams I’ve had about time travel. But back to Torture Porn: The Animated Series. I give the film a 2/10 and the series a 3/10.
