  • Rewrite: Reviewrite!
    Rewrite has a lot of depth to it. the characters are all very intricately tied together and expertly written. This anime is one I would 100% recommend to someone who is just starting to watch anime as well as anyone who has watched anime before. The main selling point of this anime is the amount of depth there is to the story, which has many questions answered in the second season. Although some ...

  • SKIP IT! Watch something else.
    There are two inherent risks adapting a visual novel to anime format.

    1. it’s too long. Unless you are familiar with the source material you won’t be able to make any sense out of it like in this case. Writers will choose bits and pieces of the original materiel trying to come up with a scrip, needless to say that in most cases the results are very bad.

    2. Because of the above writers will ...

    A simple story tackling a complex theme
    Rewrite, as others have already stated, is an adaptation of a visual novel. Love, rebirth, the idea of a universal cycle and choice versus fate seem to be themes all represented in the telling, and retelling, of the story. Jump to the third paragraph if you want to skip me sounding like a babbling, know-it-all prat.

    It is easy to have some of the content go over one's head, but with enough ...

  • There is something missing here....
    I came into this Anime cold. I had no knowledge of the Visual Novels, nor did I read any of the reviews. Even so, I was brought in by the mystery of what is actually going on in the story during that first episode. I wanted to know more.

    Well.....

    I always liked the saying:
    "There are two types of people. Those who can extrapolate from incomplete information."

    This anime will ...

  • a modern spin on evangelion
    First off let me say I never read the manga, so complaints about the manga adaption may or may not be valid. That being said this is a major mind screw of an anime, especially starting at episode 13 and continuing past that. It is a voyage of possibilities and this could be a bit hard to follow at times but it does at the very least end with closure to the story instead of a cliff hanger.

  • Pretty show, but story telling falls far short of its potential
    Hrmm... so Rewrite s2 done... it... is pretty, and had a ton of potential. But too rushed. And the story suffers. On top of.. his goals happen without him doing anything, and he fails at his task, yet, seems okay anyways... and then a really awkward finish. On my ranking of Key anime, I put this between Air and Kannon. That is a large gap from awful to great though... so this will be... 2 ...

  • A anime for the vn fans
    Simialr to the way the grisaia series was animated this was done in a alternate rout.

    this is separated into two seasons but the ending of season one really is just setting the pace for season two and i wouldn't really say the two should be taken in singularly.
    best way to describe this would be comparing it to soa where ep 14 finished the first arc.. same issue with pacing and it definatly ...

  • Very deep and emotional theme, but not so good adaptation (Final Episode Spanish review)
    Debo decir que el final fue muy emotivo. La música acompañó perfectamente el ambiente melancólico que se vivía. El reencuentro y la promesa cumplida dan un final perfecto a este anime. Sin embargo, no me gusta que después de todas las aventuras que tuvieron los chicos en la primera parte, ahora su relación sea simplemente de maestro y siervo. Dónde quedaron todos esos momentos felices y de ...

  • Despite All The Hate
    As someone who has watched this from beginning to end if both seasons, I can vouch that the story that was originally planned should have been very detailed and should have been more explanatory than it turned out. But considering the first 13 episodes, I can only say "holy shit I can't believe I understood something at all".

    The story structure for the first season was so unplanned and ...

    Reviews and thoughts
    So I just caught up with this anime....I'll be real here, season 1 was rushed yeah. I read some other reviews and saw that there were visual novels or the sort. I wouldn't necessarily say season 1 was bad, but it definitely needs a lot more development. We mainly figure a small detail of how the Occult club comes into place, major and minor characters, and or a little of who Kotarou is. Definitely ...
