The director of the upcoming Rewrite anime Tensho posted on his Twitter today that the story will be portraying a sixth route for the anime series. This story was left untold in the visual novel and focuses on “that girl”. The Rewrite visual novel took players through five different routes, one for each heroine including Chihaya, Kotori, Shizuru, Lucia and Kagari. However the heroine Kagari is not only a main character but also key to the story who never had a full fledged route in the game. It should also be noted that the upcoming anime which will be handled by 8-Bit will be releasing this coming July. Let it be known that the anime series adapts a visual novel which first released June 24th 2011 in Japan and has released on Windows, PSP, PS Vita and the PS3. It would later get released in other countries as well. Below is a plot summary of the series quoted from VNDB.org for those unfamiliar:
Rewrite is set in the fictional city Kazamatsuri where treeplanting and afforestation have caused the city to become overgrown with trees and flowers in much the same way that other cities are filled by buildings. However, while most of the city appears to be rural, there are many traditional city elements as well. While set in a modern setting, the city also gives off a strange sense of nostalgia.Tennouji Kotarou lives here. He’s a high school student who has the ability to rewrite his own body; he can become stronger and faster at any time he chooses. He investigates supernatural mysteries with five girls from his school.The basis of the story is set in a high school setting. The first half of Rewrite primarily consists of the characters interacting in many everyday, enjoyable scenes. The latter half, however, is more serious, emotional, and carries a sense of mystery to the plot.As indicated by the title, rewriting is the theme of the game’s scenario. The tagline for the game is, “Could it possibly be rewritten, that fate of her’s?”.
