Who? DEEN > 8-bit


Well, I wouldn't say 8-bit is bad as them, but oh well. I hear the last two Grisaia adaptations were a lot better than the first season.

They literally couldn't fit this into 13 or 25 episodes (true ends included) I mean, how the fuck could they do that? They' have to fit the common route in like one episode, lol!!! I'd almost be intrigued to see an attempt to fit the whole thing in 25 episodes. It would be like one big Chihaya route!!!!!


Considering that Tanaka is involved with the production and doing the script I think it's very likely that the Anime adaptation will only cover the routes written by him. So no Chihaya, Lucia or Shizuru, which I would be able to live with. Though you'd definitely lose some perspective and context if all you did was Akane, Kotori and possibly Moon/Terra, it wouldn't really work. At this point I just hope they do Kotori's route, see how it goes and continue the adaptation if it's succesful enough. I think we talked about how I'd like Rewrite to be adapted before, so I don't really feel like elaborating right now. It does give me hope that Tanaka is involved with the production since Rewrite is his baby and he'll want to make sure that the adaptation gets his points across.


That would be interesting if it was only those routes, but he'd probably want to include them all if possible. Also it's great that nowadays, more and more animes are making the original creator the script writer or at least heavily involved. It just makes the most sense because they have a vision of what the anime would be like and how to manage it.

And yes, we've alreayy been over it. That would be the best course of action is too make the adapt the common route and Kotori's route and then see how sales are. No use trying to fit everything into one unless they have a budget to make it 3 cour or more (which is unlikely)

EDIT: Alright, I looked at the preview and there's a little bit of everyone's route in there. God help us! Lmao.


The PV just consists of parts from both VN-OPs cut together.

Number 1
Number 2

So it doesn't say much.

Edit: Lol, great minds and so on


Oh I see, I haven't seen "number 2" yet!

@red Haha.... those two were bad

As far as Pierrot and Deen go, they usually output junk all the time with the occasional good show. I wouldn't trust them with anything.

8bit is still fairly new (made in 2008) and hasn't had as many shows as Deen and Pierrot. There's still potential with them and they've made a few good shows like Tokyo Ravens, the latter two Grisaias, and two Macross movies.

They're still kind of finding their ground, whereas Deen and Pierrot have already made a name for themselves.

Also 8bit is making Comet Lucifer for the upcoming season and that looks really interesting. Also their animation quality I'd say is pretty good. So I agree with you on 8bit, I think they're a fine studio, there's a lot worse choices than them.

Let's just be thankful Arms isn't making this one.

We'll just agree to disagree a bit haha.

All I know is I don't trust anyone's opinions on CR right now after Sekirei won the best ecchi series contest haha

The thing with both those studios is that they *used* to make really good stuff (Pierrot in the 80's, Deen in the 90's). They just rarely do anymore.

I think 8bit did what they could with Grisaia No Kajitsu; honestly, the biggest problem with that one was trying to do it in 13 episodes, and that wasn't 8bit's fault. The show itself was pretty well done, at least in my opinion.

They aren't the best studio out there, but most of the better studios wouldn't bother with a show based on a modestly successful visual novel, particularly since the show is almost certainly going to be more than 13 episodes. It just probably wouldn't be worth the investment for someone like A-1 or Madhouse.

Fair enough.

And haha, I wouldn't say that contest was a good indicator of tastes around here. I'd take that Sekirei win with a grain of salt, especially since there wasn't very many participants.

Oh ya definitely. Same can be said with Toei.

I agree with Grisaia. They at least tried to fit everything into individual sections and not mix routes, I think they gave it a valiant effort. If it were 25 episodes, no doubt it would have been a really good show.

And I think you're right there. The big boys probably wouldn't mess with it, but 8bit is a studio that has a lot of potential and wants to make a name for themselves. So if they could do Rewrite right, that would skyrocket their popularity. You're right that they would be probably the best candidate for this show. Either that or other up and coming studios like Silver Link, Mappa, or Lerche. I do like that 8bit is trying to tackle VNs though since that's not an easy task, I hope they just get better and better at adapting them.

Also how well did Rewrite sell?

In Japan, Rewrite sold quite well (according to the Wikipedia page): best selling PC game of June 2011, 11th best selling PC game of all of 2011.

Personally, I really hope that they do an omnibus with this one. Just run the plot arcs in order, with a world reset between them, and then run a final "Moon" and "Terra" arcs where they explain how everything fits together.

That being said, I'm excited. I've yet to see a bad Key VN adaptation, and Rewrite offers some great source material to work with.

YES YES YES! More Key coming!

If the quality is like The Labyrinth of Grisaia, I'm down for it.

Now that you say it, I really would have liked it if Silver Link had been signed on for this....

The exact number escapes me, but less than 100,000. It was something like the 8th or 9th biggest selling PC game that year (edit: someone else in the thread says 11th, according to Wikipedia). The numbers were good for a visual novel in general, but given the budget and pedigree, were well below expectations. To give you an idea, it's sales were in the range of Grisaia no Kajitsu and Walkure Romance, both of which were 18+ (I think both of them actually outsold it, but I can't remember super well; it came from a conversation with moogy). Both of those VNs also came out in 2011, and were adapted by 8bit into anime series, so I'd at least say this is in their wheelhouse, even if there's no nudity in this one.

I see, so it did sell well.

I'd hope for that too, if they run three to four cours with resets, it'd be perfect.

Though I could also see them adapting the common route and kotori's route first and then seeing if it sells well before continuing. Anyways, I got some faith in 8bit and Tanaka I believe they wouldn't want to make this series a mess, but I'm not getting my hopes up either.

Let's just see what the episode count will be first.

Oh I gotcha. Hopefully they made a profit though. Haha Key is probably wishing that they made it an eroge after getting beat out by two eroges that year

And that's interesting 8bit adapted those two, seems like there's a trend here. Also how was the Walkure Romance adaptation? And there's some fanservice scenes, 8bit will be happy campers I could also see 8bit making shorts of the Oppai route similar to what they did with the Grisaia shorts

Walkure Romanze wasn't good--think Infinite Stratos, but with jousting instead of mechs. They took all the sex and romance out of the VN, which just left a lot of fan service and horses, and not quite enough plot to sustain itself.
