It was revealed in the February issue of Mag Garden's Comic Garden magazine, which will officially be released on January 5, 2015, that two more series from the Grisaia series will receive TV anime. The next two of the trilogy that will be adapted after Grisaia no Kajitsu are Grisaia no Meikyuu and Grisaia no Rakuen. The first sequel, Grisaia no Meikyuu, will premiere at the end of March, with the first episode scheduled to be an hour-long special.

So much hate for the adaption o.o

I want to point out that I read the VN and think the producers did a very good job with Kajitsu. It was very clear from the beginning that they can't adapt everything so if you don't like it, don't watch it. Problem solved.

People who didn't read the VN won't care about what was left out and it doesn't make it a bad anime and it's not like people don't understand what's going on ^^

If you people haven't read/played the VN give the anime a chance and let the VN players whine. I hope I am not the only one who thinks like that ^^

I personally look forward to the coming adaptions :D


Yes they did good with the time they had but if it it was longer I'm sure it could have been a really great anime that most watcher wouldn't forget for a while and that why we don't like this adaptation. You know what is wasted potential? This is exactly the case here.

Adaption could be 1 hour special for Meikyuu + whole season(=11-12) for Rakuen, or somethin' like 3-4 episodes Meikyuu(first 2 bein' teh 1 hour special) and 10-9 episodes for Rakuen. Not entirely clear with teh info we have^^

yeah seriously what's taking so long -.-
maybe that prequel sequel thing making them confused?:I
uhh well it is a sequel, just the majority of it is backstory, but that is in the same way Angelic Howl is showcased etc, I.E. as a story from the past told in the present so to speak

Cool. Going to start the VN soon, but this is good news since i've heard so much about Grisaia

Like I mentioned earlier, even if you aren't aware of what the holes in the story really contain, you can still very easily see that there are in fact holes more or less everywhere. So no, it is a pretty bad anime even as an anime-only viewer.

Go read some thoughts of anime-only viewers from last episode thread...Most of the people gave anime a 7/10...We just whine because it could have easily been 9/10 or 10/10 anime if they tried just a little bit but instead 8bit just adapted random scenes,used a good character designer,did a decent animation and they did a decent adaptation just because of the greatness of original material...

And i assure you people who didnt read VN do CARE,people are aware that they missed lots of stuff,people know that anime was fast paced and a lot of people started VN for it...Thinking about it maybe thats why 8bit did the adaptation bad,or thats what i would think without weird pee fetish scenes...

In the beginning of I was gonna just finish reading the first vn grisai no kajitsu but after reading a review
of Grisaia No Rakuen I have decided to read it. It's only in japanese as of this moment so I am currently using rough translations from the visual novel reader. Getting everything set up was quite easy and the translations were better than I thought they'd be. I only have the trial of the vn right now but I plan on getting the full version soon. If anyone's interested in doing what i'm doing(playing the vn with rough translations from the visual novel reader just to get a rough idea of the story) let me know either here or in a message.

PS: here's how it looks. The picture is suppose to look fuzzy there. it's an ingame effect.

VN's pretty good. I'm still playing it for the first time. Spent at least 20 hours on it and it's been fun. I have no idea who's route i'm on though. I made Amane my girlfriend but that's it. The game itself is like 7 gb though pretty large.

Just follow the instructions that come along with it.

I too was like o_O when I first saw the files, but then it became no biggie.

And tbh if the visual novel is superior, why should I care about current (and future) anime adaptations? I would just play the visual novel and get the full experience, and ignore the anime altogether.


The problem with this adaptation is that the anime give a wrong impression of the visual novel. An anime is made mostly for advertise the visual novel but this one was just so different it's giving the wrong impression. Yuuji look like a Gary Stu, the girl problem doesn't feel real or feel just stupid, the needless fanservice when the visual novel has just dirty joke.. it has some similarity but the experience is so different. That why we can't ignore this anime adaptation.

VNs are just like any other game: .exe files. They're their own programs, nothing more. Not like you need any fancy universal platform to run them all on or anything, just download and play, it's rarely any more complicated than that :s
other than system locale stuff its not harder than watching an anime...

Yeah, thats teh most common error for most west newcomers to vns, even if every single tutorial mentions it^^ Some also require changes to time settin's and stuff, but thats also a thing of teh past with tools like VNR, that sets automatically teh time tempoary to jap. time when startin' a vn. So yeah it couldnt get easier^^

Ya, people either say that or complain that a visual novel takes "too long".

There is no such thing as "too long" when it comes to any kind of story.

There is of course somethin' like "too long", but yeah length doesnt matter if teh material is or gets good. Sometimes slow starts are just needed, to make endin' parts stronger. Thats somethin' that most dont get.

While i agree about teh full experience: Teh problem of this particular anime is that we are gettin' a whole different experience. I wouldnt hate it otherwise as much, if it at least provided an experience anywhere near teh vn. But nope, we have to endure teh fetishes of teh anime staff, while still seein' teh material butchered :D
