After reading some of Chihaya's route in HF, I have to say they should make an extra route of Chihaya for console port. It should be a route that focus more on Chihaya instead of Sakuya. Hell, they can make it into something like how Ryou & Kyou share route in Clannad (good end with Sakuya, the bad end with Chihaya) and I will still throw out my money for that .

Why not just make separate Chihaya and Sakuya routes, both with good endings? It's not like the original Chihaya route doesn't need, uh, fixing.

I doubt Tonokawa would bother doing that though The route itself is pretty fine I guess for delving more into the nature of Kotarou's power and what it can become. The problem is how the characters used in that route felt like a plot device, heck even the main heroine of that route itself is one of them.

That being said, despite wanting some kind of proper route for Chihaya I pretty much doubt they would ever bother adding anything for console port. Maybe packing the original and Harvest Festa as a single game ?

That's the most I can see them doing, yeah. Rewrite needs a hell of a lot more than that, but effort.

I believe this is more about how they consider Rewrite as testbed for a new direction. Key is always about nakige after all (though I'd argue that this one still have enough moment for that).

I think that's a bit of of a ridiculous consideration. All they really proved is that such a direction is beyond them... they really should have hired outside talent who are more experienced with action VNs.

I think this is more of the problem with how multiple routes doesn't really complement each other nicely (while Lucia's route is nice on its own, it felt so out of place ). Probably, if the game pick out the only good and necessary parts from each route and combine them into a single true route I believe the game might turn out a lot better.

Why not just leave that to an anime adaptation?

After what VA and Key did with LB, I doubt we can get something decent like Clannad again

Well, LB's anime was clearly designed to be a quick cashgrab but it's "underperforming" by their standards, probably because of how bad it is.
Rewrite isn't as ridiculously popular as LB is, either, so not even LB's 12k average is guaranteed... maybe Visual Arts will try to ensure that it gets the proper attention it deserves in order to boost sales?
I guess that's just wishful thinking though.

Spoiler for Sakuya:

As for Rewrite anime, I think the best way to do it:
1st season(2 cour): 8-10 episodes of common route + rest of episodes for
Kotori/Chihaya mix with bits of Shizuru and Lucia.
Spoiler for :

Akane will be difficult to mix with other routes so I'd say just animate it as separate AU OVA. (like Tomoyo/Kyou routes in Clannad anime)

2nd season(1 cour): Moon + Terra
Expand Terra with greater roles for Chihaya,Shizuru and Lucia+more romance with Kagari.( This is just wishful thinking though)

Well it was also mentioned that it's possible to have layers of parallel world (not the exact term) in one planet if the life energy is too abundant in the friends section

Looks like HF has more in-depth explanation for the games. I hope it'll be translated in the future

Alright so far I've only finished Kotori and Shizuru's routes...mainly because Shizuru quickly became one of my top Key heroines and I had to play through Kotori's route to get to her (which was fine since I was going to play Kotori's next anyway). So I'm kinda worried about spoiling myself by coming here...but I need to vent...

Spoiler for Kotori and Shizuku Routes:


I'll be honest...for the first time I wonder if I really want to continue playing a Key VN...never before have I finished a heroine route in a Key VN and thought "This is BS, I'm done."
I can't really take more endings like the Shizuku Ending...I was going for Lucia next but I dunno if it's worth it after that last one.

I think Shizuku's the only one who has ending like 'that', so don't worry

And that's the reason I recommend playing Chihaya's route before Shizuru's. That route gives some important information to understand Shizuru's ending.

Regarding the other endings:

In Little Busters, Kurugaya ending is bittersweet.
