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.

Just make it 2 cour. Just do. Because while the studio and staff of C;H were decent, the weight of being 1 cour was too much that it crumbled apart as the result.

Choas Head was so fucking confusing. I really didn't see this coming but hey I guess I will give it a watch.

Oh, this'll be interesting. (Also, here's the game's opening for those who are interested).

Don't fuck it up, TBA studio.

Chaos;Head Visual Novel >>>>> Chaos;Head Anime

Let's just hope that this time Chaos;Child's anime lives up to its VN standards unlike Chaos;Head.

Havnt completed Chaos;Head but

does anyone know if Choas;Child features Takumi Nishijō as the MC again? or isit someone different?


A guy named Myashiro Takuru who is in the newspaper club and want to investigate the new gene murders. There's something else I could say about later but that would be a spoiler, but there are some "surprises" in this game.

And for people complaining about how Chaos;head is a trainwreck (no kidding, its main theme IS reality wrecking after all) well. IMO Chaos;child is better than chaos;head, but is even "worse" when it comes to this. (or better, depending of what you watch C;H and C;C for, since the mind rape aspect is the very purpose of the stories)
Chaos;head wasn't a trainwreck in any way for me and was pretty logical, but I was just ".........What?" (not in a negative meaning, but in a ".........Wtf?" one) in front of child.


Ah right. thanks for that. I guess I better back to the VN soon lol I hope the sequel comes to PC soon.

Trailer creeped the hell out of me 0____0

Can't wait to see the series but also watch Let's play of the VN

Why make an anime out of this? It was a giant flop in Japan (thanks to it being a freaking Xbox One exclusive. What a dumb move that was.) and no one likes Chaos;Head. Maybe they're just going with 'every VN in the series needs an anime because reasons' approach.
Just don't give it to Badhouse. They are the ruiners of dreams.

Loathed Chaos;Head.

But this looks interesting.

Don't give it to Madhouse.

Meh. ChäoS;Child was utter garbage so I couldn't care less for a sequel.
Are you from the future? Shouldn't those jokes be saved for the S;G news thread?

Aaah, accidentally mixed up their names there. Fixed.~

Chaos;Head almost killed anime for me. Steins;Gate revived it. Nuff Said.

Mar 29, 2015 1:55 AM by Meruru_Arls

I loved Chaos Head so I am so looking forward to this one!!! <3
