Rewrite TV Anime Features Untold '6th Route' About 'That Girl'
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Tensho, the director of the television anime of the Rewrite visual novel, posted on his official Twitter account on Sunday that the Rewrite anime's story will portray a "sixth" route left untold in the game, which will tell the story of "that girl."
The original Rewrite visual novel had five main routes, centering on five different characters (Chihaya, Kotori, Shizuru, Lucia, and Akane). While the heroine Kagari (shown in the anime's visual at right) is a main character, and key to the story, she herself does not have a full-fledged route in the game.
The anime will premiere this July. The visual novel's voice cast is returning for the anime:
- Masakazu Morita as Kotarō Tennōji
- Chiwa Saito as Kotori Kanbe
- Saya Shinomiya as Chihaya Ohtori
- Eri Kitamura as Akane Senri
- Keiko Suzuki as Shizuru Nanatsu
- Risa Asaki as Lucia Konohana
- Kana Hanazawa as Kagari
Tensho (Kinmoza! Kiniro + Mosaic, The Fruit of Grisaia) is directing the anime at 8-bit and also supervising the series scripts. Romeo Tanaka (Cross Channel scenario, Humanity Has Declined) and Visual Art's Kai (Clannad scanrio, Grim Reaper Kyou) are credited with collaborating on the composition and scripts. Masayuki Nonaka (Hello!! KINMOZA chief animation director, The Fruit of Grisaia main animator) is adapting the game's original character designs by Key/Visual Art's Itaru Hinoue (Kanon, Air, Clannad, Little Busters!) for animation.
