It was announced via live stream by Chiyomaru Shikura, the representative director of 5pb., that an anime adaptation of ChäoS;Child is in production.

The visual novel is the fourth series in 5pb.'s sci-fi adventure franchise, which also includes Steins;Gate and Robotics;Notes. ChäoS;Child is the sequel game to ChäoS;HEAd, which was developed with Nitro+ and initially released in August 2008. It was also adapted into a TV anime in Fall 2008.

Described as a "psychological suspense" story, ChäoS;Child takes place in October 2015, six years after the events of ChäoS;HEAd. Abnormal events begin to occur in the Shibuya district, including mysterious deaths.

The tagline on the key visual (right) says:

If you are God, and the delusion becomes reality. About what kind of the noids you get?
Is it the sensual world? The despotic society? The destructive sanctions? Or...

ChäoS;Child was released for Xbox One in December 2014 and has also been announced to debut on Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PS Vita on June 25. A demo version will be made available on March 30.

Wonder how long the anime will be. I hope it will be better than Chaos;Head tbh.

Also curious to see some gameplay soon later this week.

And with the sequel for Steins;Gate also announced (if that was fully legit), this seems like a 5pb day.

Based on what I read, Chaos;Child (VN) is a looooot longer than Chaos;Head (VN). Should expect at least a 24-episode series if it's going to be a proper adaptation.

And the 4th semicolon anime is about to appear eh.

Madhouse(ChaoS:HEAd?), Whitefox(Steins;Gate), Production I.G(Robotics;Notes) animate the first 3 so I wonder what animation company will get this semicolon anime.

Watched the PV for the VN a while ago, and I can tell for sure that it'll be much better than Chaos;Head. I was talking to one of my friend about this and remember being pretty sure about the inevitable anime adaptation. Looking forward to this one!

Well this is interesting to know.

I forgot a lot about Chaos;Head lol. If it's 2 cour, I'd expect this to maybe debut this year although I prefer if they adapt this properly by a decent studio with good casting.

Chaos;head sucked. I know it says that it is considered to be sequel of it, but is it very related to it? Or can it be watched as a stand-alone?

Sounds interesting, though the Steins;Gate sequel caught my attention far more than this.

Are you even understand that half of Chaos;Head anime has nothing to do with the original VN? Saying that C;H sucks based on the anime is totally retarted

I for one am hyped because the original Chaos;Head visual novel was honestly pretty good.

Also glad that C;C is coming to other consoles! (I mean it was pretty obvious given Xbox's sales in Japan but at least it's confirmed.)

For all those saying Chaos;Head sucked, I suggest reading the VN instead. It's a million times better, and I know it because I did the same thing.

I''ve been playing it's VN and I don't think it's that better than the anime, I still don't like it.

I didn't finish it yet though, hope it gets better towards the end.

Heard the VN was pretty good, too bad it's not on PC yet.
Not sure about this adaptation though, considering how bad Chaos;Head's was, but it all depends on who actually gets it.

Does anyone know if Chaos;Child is related to Chaos;Head in terms of plot?

Definitely hoping this will be an improvement of the god-awful Chaos;Head. I know the characters are all different and stuff so again, hoping.

Considering they share the same name, maybe some themes/concepts will be similar? Probably not the same but I think it'll be somehow related in that sense.

I actually quite liked Chaos;Head when I watched it a few years ago. Of course I might hate it now since it was a while ago... :P. This will definitely be on my to watch list though.

Hopefully it'd be that. It's been quite a few years since I watched Chaos;Child, and I can't remember most of it. But seeing as the characters are different, and also that the Science Adventure franchise VNs have almost no connection to each other, it's probably gonna be something separate from Chaos;Head.

Was only a matter of time. Hopefully an english patch will surface before the anime airs(who am I kidding we still don't have R;N). I wonder how many people I'm going to have to tell to read the VN and not the anime before watching Chaos;Child.

Yup. C;C anime will be a sequel to C;H VN. C;H anime is irrelevant.
