If you love a story, you want more. I really think it is that simple.

I plan on keeping it for a good while. That game is taking me a long time (and it tends to get interrupted by Dangan Ronpa 2).

Another remake id really like to see is "Little Busters" because JCstaff did a horrible job with their interpretation of the Visual Novel. I know it wont happen, but its worth saying regardless.


I was under the impression that Key was either working closely with or supervising the anime adaptation. If this is true, then it seems unfair to put all of the blame on J.C. Staff. I haven't played the vn, but I was also under the impression that it would be very difficult to adapt into anime form. I have seen both sides of the equation too: some who think the adaptation was faithful and those who don't.


Well yes the anime its self would be extremely difficult to adapt because of how many the story elements relied on the visual novel format to deceive the people playing the game. I actually think i remember one of the head writers at key saying that it was impossible to adapt it to a Anime format when asked why they had no anime of it. (this was well before JCstaff picked it up.) Think of it like this,they had to basically try to animate a story-line similar to the "endless 8" but make it so the audience doesn't realize the timeline is repeating while at the same time convey character growth thats too subtle for the audience to fully realize its happening while showing multiple endings for each character as well as multiple romantic interests/relationships. With a linear media like a Anime vs a non-linear branching media like a Visual novel its simply not possible.

If we think about Fate/stay night vs Little busters for example, imagine some animation company was making all 3 of F/S-N's routes in the same anime while trying to make sure that we, the audience, didn't realize that they are parallel universes of the same story. Its just not ment to work out heh.

I'd go with this then expand on it a bit because I like seeing alternate takes/versions of a story. I'll go with the example already mentioned in this thread. personally I enjoyed the original FSN anime (Deen), was okay with the UBW movie (Deen), and so far am enjoying the current series by ufotable. I see each version as being just that a version of the story, not to mention that the current series + movie(s) will be covering different routes within the overall story. Also some of the series are not re-iterations of the same story, Fate/Zero = prequel while Fate/kaleid is alt. universe with its own storyline (spinoff basically). Even something like Ghost in the Shell: SAC shows how this idea can be such a good thing, since I hold GitS: SAC in an extremely high regard.
