Tensho, the Is the order a rabbit?? animation director who’s now directing the Rewrite anime, posted on his official Twitter to hint at a new direction the show will take compared with the original visual novel. He said that the anime will portray a “sixth” route previously abandoned for the game, which would also tell the story of “that girl”, and considering that Kagari, while a key heroine in the story, doesn’t have her own route in the game, it seems they’ll be putting her centre-stage for part of the TV adaptation.
The visual novel’s voice cast returns all together for the studio 8-Bit anime, and Tensho supervises the scripts as well as directing. Romeo Tanaka of Humanity Has Declined and Visual Art’s Kai of the CLANNAD anime’s scenario collaborated on composition and scriptwriting, and Hello!! KINMOZA‘s chief animation director Masayuki Nonaka adapts the original character designs from Key/Visual Art’s Itaru Hinoue, known for working on the Kanon, Air and CLANNAD games among others.
