Well, actually it's kind of obvious but, that's it and no other information besides that?
Yeah, kind of obvious is one thing, having it officially announced is another. And no, not much information besides that.

I have my doubts about this. The game is REALLY long, one cour would never do it justice. Also the CG got voted for best VN-CG if I remember correctly..
voted where?

Just tried to look it up and I guess I remembered it wrong, but I could have sworn I read something about it a while ago...
It did recieve the Moe Game Award, but that's not really what I had in mind :/

At this point I'm just thankful the project is not totally dead yet.
Though I pretty sure am gonna be disappointed all over again when this actually airs.

Still reading the visual novel (it's damn good) but the prospect of an anime is...Interesting. Hopefully it's well done.

Character design: Akio Watanabe
Fangasm. I saw the VN OP, looks really promising.
This will be great!

Many people will go rage you know.


Well, I ain't expecting some good studio will take this. But I will still hope this won't turn into one of the butchered VN-anime adaptations(For instance, Majikoi as I heard) since we already had enough of those bullshit.

I still want my sex/lewd jokes so please I really hope they don't take that out!

I'm really looking forward to this, Grisaia is one of the top 3 VN's I've finished and I would love to see them adapt the story.

Amane's route in particular was amazing and would be incredible to see adapted.

But then I'd love to see Makina's and Sachi's routes done as well as they were both really good by my standards as well =)

The first VN is more of introduction to whats to come in the sequels, giving background information on all the characters as you do their route before "moving on".

This might be close to spoiler grounds, but what I'm about to say is all on the VN's description on VNDB.

The second VN takes place 1 year after the first. In this setting, Yuuji (the protagonist) did not "go" for any of the girls. Instead he did a little of all the routes, resolving the same problems he did in all the routes, without actually entering the romantic zone. Instead, he accepted a promotion at the CIRS and leaves Mihama academy to fight some high class terrosist. Meanwhile the girls find documents on Yuuji and learns more about him... (AKA Yuuji's past is finally revealed in detail).

The third VN, Yuuji is been detained for suspected involvement with an international terrorist organization, lead by Heath Oslo, that has managed to enter Japan's borders with a devastating new weapon of mass destruction in hand. The girl's on the other hand are facing the problem where the school will be shut down. Thankfully they can all stand on their own (thanks to Yuuji). So they decide to all work together and save the one person that's done so much for them without asking for anything in return.

So.... if the anime wants to do this right, they should NOT follow any of the routes.

The series is a good read imo, was a little disappointing that my favorite girl (Sachi) and second favorite girl (Michiru) had routes that didn't meet my expectations.

But the sequels can remedy this for me if they make Sachi go all special ops ninja maid. Oh I hope they do this xD. I mean it was hinted and teased throughout the novel that she had the potential....

I for one am looking quite forward to this adaptation. I've completed the Visual Novel and it is a rollercoaster of a ride.. Makina, and Amane are by far my favorite girls.

Please don't let this be the next Majikoi.

Kimikiss was a special case. The director and writers didn't understand the psychology of the VN audience. That is, the protagonist is a self-insert character, so you can't have other guys (the protagonist's friend and that Kai character) stealing girls! Multiple romances might work in shoujo anime or soap operas, but it's suicide for a VN adaptation.

Furthermore, the pastel colors and restrained sexuality drew criticism.

Fans hated the show from Episode 1, so it was doomed right out of the gates.

You may treasure innovation more than others but the buying consumers treasure a lot more about adapting the VNs reasonably faithfully and recreating the mood it gives to the player/watcher. Your issue about it being wholesale lifting is precisely what fans of the VNs want, and yet the only really wholesale lift is the structure -- there are still tons of adaptation decisions need to be made to adapt a VN that last many hours of play into a show that has much shorter length; so it is really stretching it if you think a pure copy-and-paste operation will create an equally engaging and entertaining experience when the story is ported from VN to anime media.

The VN itself was very popular so all the bigger pity that its anime adaptation is now viewed as one of the "darker moments" of VN adaptation in the eyes of fans in Japan.

One big reason why omnibus format is now popular with some VN adaptation is because the structure of those VNs like Amagami and YnS, where the MC got hooked up with one girl in one arc while others faded into the background (e.g. never actually see the MC as love interest), is considered to be best adapted in omnibus format. You mentioned KimiKiss as something more suited. And this is PRECISELY the bombing and huge amount of negative feedbacks from fans of the original VN and anime watchers because of how it forcibly changed the multiple girl arcs into one narrative and one MC into 3 MCs. So with all the efforts spent adapting the VNs into a single-narrative story in anime, the result was a disaster. After this debacle the omnibus format started to get more popular, and I would say for good reason.

Hmm… that's too bad since i hardly find omnibus innovative. My main issue with this structure is that it’s pretty much lifted wholesale from the VN itself. Many VN's follow the omnibus format and when their anime adaptions follow suit it can feel more like a copy/paste job than an actual adaptation. Of course not every one that takes this format is like this, but it’s very hard to avoid if you’re going to go through every arc and just reset at the end of each one.
