since it's an adaption from KEY, the staff doesn't matter at all...
I've just hope they take a good ruote to follow


Well staff actually do matter of course in this case regardless if it was a Key work or not, personally.

Most of the routes barely even count as romance... Especially Kotori's so it wont really matter in the adaptation


Then we're not playing the same game. Probably you're too much focused on the action.

Grisaia was horrible, so I bet this will be bad as well. Same studio, same director.


I will be more annoyed if Rewrite is done well when GnK was butchered, since GnK is the better VN.

thepath said:
LOL !! Grisaia OVA and 2nd season are both rated above 8 in MAL, so majority people do not agree with you


Doesn't matter when the best VN (Kajitsu) was butchered. Meikyuu and Rakuen are just for wish fulfillment and turning the crazy up to 11. GnK was the masterpiece.

Also, Meikyuu was not an OVA it was a special that aired on TV. And while it was an awesome adaptation, (better than the VN itself) people who dropped the first season wouldn't watch beyond that point and as such and as with all sequels the rating is artificially inflated. Just look at Gintama.

Ehh, not happy about the staff, but since the VN is so good, even if they f*ck up, it'll still be good


Oh you poor spring flower, you have no idea

This discussion about some alteration to story is stupid, as many have pointed already. Even Clannad has been altered a lot in order to make the route system works in anime, and people simply didn't complain because many people didn't have the access to the original material back then.

Little Busters! indeed has a much lower budget compared to fans expectation, and it was handled amateurishly at times (especially in the beginning). However, I don't think the problem lies in scriptwriter (the screenwriter did a brilliant job in making the overall adaptation works as a linear story even though it's a very hard task to accomplish), and even the director is slowly getting better and made a pretty good Refrain adaptation in the end.

Nobody would be able to salvage a Kajitsu with 13 eps restriction, so it's more like a production committee fault.


Give this man a cookie!

No, give this man an all access pass to the premiere of Rewrite episode 1!!

For the true route goal, the romance in the other heroine routes wasnt that needed, but trust me when I say, if you played LB VN, there are some romantic plots you gonna want to see adapted for sure, and those made sentence in the context so taking them from it, makes some adapted scenes seeming to be missing something.

All the more for Rewrite! Where all the goodness and huge development from Lucia's route cames from the romantic plotline! You cant adapt her route, and take off the romance it would fuck everything up.
Chihaya's, wasnt that needed but stuff like Shizuru's, which ending of the route is pretty definitive, like catastrofic, cataclistic stuff, you gotta have the omnibus format, so you can give proper development to shizuru, and if you are going to do that, you need the romance also.
Kotori's isnt that much needed, but Akane's is also needed, alot of stuff cant be explained with friendship, it just cant. Each route is greatly set appart from eachother, there is no bridge.
After all

If, and only if 8-bit fucks this up. I'll quit watching anime for a while... My favorite visual novel after Clannad.
Rewrite (the VN) is so good.

The art doesn't look that bad. It actually fits for the comedy scenes, but I'm worried how it would go for the intense ones.

They kind of kept the OST which was nice.

Not gonna lie, KOTAROU MY BABY IN ANIME ITS TOO CUTE.

Though I have to say the designs are a little moe-esque but its considered fine I suppose.


Kotori is mah baby <3 gotta love her tho she's so cutee

Makes sense, also good point on trying to not bring LB on a Rewrite thread xD if we're speaking about Rewrite.

Of course for me I heard that the anime stayed close a lot, and people ham on J.C Staff a lot so... I dont see the point on bashing a series for that.

Maybe it would go for the same way maybe with Rewrite... when people go and say "KyoAni should have done it"

*facewall*

There were changes indeed, but it wasn't anything major the points of the routes and Refrain still got across (Refrain was great). I expect Rewrite to do something similar; with all this talk from Romeo about 'original development'

We've discussed for a few years actually (believe it or not) why KyoAni shouldn't do Rewrite.
I personally wouldn't want to see
Terra spoiler
in KyoAni style


If KyoAni did "that" it would be... rather creepy for me Lmao!

With the romance removed in LB, they kept it as close as the original as possible. I could compare it to how Clannad's heroine routes were adapated; but that's a different discussion. As for your question, it's debatable whether the romance mattered or not. In my own opinion, it was yes and no. But I'd rather not get into it on this thread.

If you're referring to Rewrite, then yes. The routes can't work without it. They'd shift into a completely different direction if the romance is removed.

I was also expecting something more along 2nd OP, that is why I wanted WhiteFox for this...


Each route differents ALOT from the others, like characters that were alive in one route, maybe dead in another, that sorta of stuff. The side you side up with also changes from each route.
That is why the only way to adapt this well, would be omnibus format, which would also work with the context of Rewrite, since Moon's route is all about the proof we have experienced all those different routes and different developments to Kotarou's persona.


The moment they took of the romance from each heroine, stopped making it a good adaptation. Refrain was a good adaptation thought.

I like the trailer, except for the colors and the moe style of it... I was expecting something more along the 2nd Opening.... oh well I still have my expectation low.

Also VN reader how do you think the comedy will fare with those people? I don't tend to look at who is making the anime so I have no idea how the comedy will look like.

Why do the good VN adaptations have to go to the studios that can't do them right? It's Little Busters all over again.
