Seems reasonable. I did Lucia first and it made for a good experience in terms of narrative progress and the way the plot unraveled, even though the route itself had many flaws in my eyes, but you certainly can't go wrong with doing Kotori first.

I cannot wait to start Chihaya's route because she's my favorite girl thus far (I also love her voice).


I like her a lot as well, I find her to be a lot more charming than the other girls, she just has a lot of fun quirks to get attached to. Then again, I still have to play Akane's route, who could easily become my favourite along the way. My favourite voice is Kotori though and by quite a large amount, her voice actress is just amazing. She is voiced by Chiwa Saitou by the way, who also did Senjougahara for Monogatari and Homura from Madoka among many other roles (Kuro from Fate/kaleid for example), she is definitely among my favourite voice actresses


Oh! That's why Kotori's voice sounded so familiar! I thought the same thing when I was going through F/K when I heard Kuro's voice. It all makes sense now, she definitely has a good voice actress.

And I'm glad to you liked Chihaya's route and I wonder how I'll like Lucia's route. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing her loving/dere side since her tsun is pretty strong. Kotarou got it right though:


Also is this foreshadow!?

I wonder how he'll "defeat" that tongue?

And I thought this was interesting, I can't pick any of the other options. My guess is that I have to finish a route before answering this because I don't really know anything about Kotarou or the world.

Hm, I am more mixed about Chihaya's route as a whole, as said before, I'll probably make a long post about that once I'm completely done with the game. Although Chihaya's route has a certain red-eyed badass, who I am sure you'll be meeting quite soon, that is probably my personal favourite character

Well, that isn't really a spoiler, seeing how you are probably already aware of the fact that you have to unlock both Akane's and Shizuru's route. The other two choices will become available later, once you finish up Kotori's/Chihaya's route, and will lead you into one of the two other two routes that are still locked at this point in time. The question itself is also an interesting one, seeing how heavily it relates to the main conflict of the game and there is actually a legitimate reason behind that choice opening up the still non-accesible routes.

Since we are talking Rewrite, I want to say that Akane's route is one of the better ones in my personal opinion. I don't really like Chihaya as a heroine, but her route was pretty fun (sillyness of the plot aside). Lucia's route was my second favourite. Kotori's route, I thought served an awesome introduction to the universe, and Shizuru's route was so and so.

Oh yeah the common route was hilarious, and the Terra/Moon routes nicely tied loose ends.

I just got introduced to Akane and I really like her. I wasn't expecting her to sound and act the way she did. Though I'm saving her for the end since most people say her's was the best route and best to end on.

And I like to stay optimistic and think all the routes are pretty good. Everyone says Rewrite is awesome so I don't think there'd be any bad or even average routes or people wouldn't praise it as much as they do.

Heh heh yes you can.

Though am I right? Wouldn't you say in general, that all the routes were very good (like 8/10 at the lowest)? Just some were better than others. Like, I'd say the Fate route was good 8-9/10, but UBW and HF were just better. Would this be a similar situation here with Rewrite's routes?

Numerical scores can be very misleading, you know

I personally would probably rate both Chihaya's and Lucia's route at a 7/10, while giving Kotori an 8 or maybe an 8.5/10. I had plenty of problems with both routes, which is why I wouldn't give them as high a score as an 8 would be, but I'll elaborate on that when the time comes. Then again, your oppinion may differ from mine and we may have different standards, I took the liberty of looking at your MAL account once and your average score is like 1.5 points above mine Well, maybe I have just seen more shit than you have, I don't know.

But as I said before, I really do like Rewrite a lot despite my problems with it and I really don't want to discourage you, I'm sure you'll enjoy it a lot once you really get into it. I am just saying that thinking something is gonna be good just because a lot of people say that it is, isn't something that matches with my general experiences, although I don't know if it is society or I that has shit taste in this case

Generally, I'm a very easy person to please it comes to entertainment. I'm not the most critical person in the world, but it's not to say that I just turn off my brain when I watch/read stuff. Of course I have certain standards and maybe nowadays I'm finding myself to be more critical, but I think even when I watch 500 animes in total or even more, I believe I'll still be pretty forgiving in some areas. If I'm really entertained and wowed in a certain area in an anime or whatever, it can affect my entire perception of the work in a very positive way (example: second half of Fate route vs first half of Fate). Though, the opposite can happen too where one bad thing can ruin my perception of the work (first 18 episodes of AgK vs last several episodes of AgK).

My preferences can be kind of spotty (I think all of our's are), but as you've probably seen with me I'm pretty positive when it comes to most entertainment. If the good out weighs the bad, then that's good enough for me and I can forgive the bad depending on how "good" the good is.

I think I'm making this kind of complicated, but I hope this gives insight into Loomy's Tastes.

And I won't be discouraged, but I just like to know how other people feel about it. I see Rewrite talked about in a very positive light, so when I see some criticism, it gets me curious and I want to know why someone feels this way. It gives me more perspective and I love hearing other people's opinions on things because it let's me view a work in a lot of different lights. Which is why I like forums since it's just a big clash of opinions. I don't like being ignorant.

Also you should add me on MAL

Personally, I'd say that the worst of the routes was of average quality (Shizuku's). Chihaya's was fun, but nothing special. Kotori's was decent, but not really my type of story. Lucia and Akane's were great, Moon was really good, and Terra was exceptional.

Other people might say that really, the common route and Terra are what makes the VN so highly rated, but a lot of them don't seem to really like anything outside of MLA, so I don't know. Honestly, speaking as a VN fan, I find certain segments of the community incredibly negative.

A lot of those people also seem to feel that, since it isn't as good as Cross Channel, it must be awful...which I find dumb, but whatever. There are some valid criticisms I do kinda agree with (the tonal inconsistency between routes, for instance). In general, I think it was a good enough read, even through the weaker points, but I'm an easy sell when it come to Ixrec's translations, and the overall plot was always engaging.

Interesting.

I wonder how I'll feel about it when I get further in. But if the Moon and Terra are so good then no wonder so many people liked because it ended great haha

So far, I'm loving it. The Common Route is sweet and the MC continues to be hilarious. Though this ghost situation is actually kind of creepy. Tomoko just got shredded up I can't wait to see where this shit goes!

Also does Yoshino play a bigger role in any of the routes? I feel like there's more than meets the eye with him.

In a way, yes and in other ways, not so much. The important thing is that he's the ultimate bro of broness who is a bro.

Dat Akane, I think she has pretty good chemistry with Kotarou. Also she seems to be pretty powerful, the way she obtained the room seemed pretty devious.

Also this was brought up again:

Seems like this will come down to battle of selflessness vs selfishness.

And lol, I wasn't expecting him to say that at all! My boy Kotarou!!!!

And then Akane actually accepted Oh man, I can't wait for her route
