Visual Art's/Key Head on Hypothetical Rewrite Anime
posted on by Joanne Mertz
Visual Art's/Key President Takahiro Baba responded on Tuesday to an inquiry on Twitter about the possibility of a Rewrite anime series by saying, "If they call me, I'd be more than happy to do the anime."
The original Rewrite visual novel takes place in Kazamatsuri, a fictional city where civilization and greenery co-exist. Within it, players assume the role of student Kotarō Tennōji and interact with his fellow classmates Kotori Kanbe, Chihaya Ohtori, Akane Senri, Sizuru Nakatsu, and Lucia Konohana (voiced by Chiwa Saito, Saya Shinomiya, Eri Kitamura, Keiko Suzuki, Risa Asaki respectively) along with the "key" girl Kagari (Kana Hanazawa). Rewrite Harvest festa!, written by the game's original team of Romeo Tanaka (Cross Channel, Kana: Little Sister), Ryukishi07 (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Umineko no Naku Koro ni), and Yūto Tonokawa (Little Busters!), featured various additional stories involving the heroines of the original game, and both were illustrated by Key artist Itaru Hinoue.
