Rewrite - Visual Novel review -

Okay, now I will review one of the newest Visual Novel by Key, which is Rewrite.
...maybe it's not that new, but okay :l

Rewrite is the 8th title of Key's Visual Novel. Rewrite was released in 24th June 2011 and the first complete translation was done by Amaterasu around December 2012.



Before, I must warn you that Rewrite is very different with the other Key's VNs. Especially, the center of Key, Maeda Jun wasn't fully involved in script writing and instead, became the QC (maybe he just wanted to be the very first person to enjoy Rewrite lol). The scriptwriters were mostly taken from outside of Key. Tanaka Romeo serves as the main scriptwriter, and the other two are Ryukishi07 from 07th Expansion and Tonokawa Yuuto from Key. The combination of scriptwriters was rather unique, I think. Tanaka was well known for CrossChannel (sadly I haven't played it) and Ryukishi was well known with *** no Naku Koro ni (If you never heard of it at all, I'll smack your head). Tonokawa wrote several routes in Little Busters! even though they're pretty meh in my opinion.


Okay, let's begin the review, and watch out of spoilers.
It's going to be a long and boring read, so prepare yourself :p

Mizutani Runa - Sasayaka na Hajimari -lyrics and translation-

ささやかなはじまり
Sasayaka na Hajimari
A Simple Beginning

Original


dye mixture arrange version


背伸びしても変わらず、僕はいつもこのまま
「けれどもそれが好き」と微笑みかける君

出かけ際の雨空、帰りがけの北風
いつでも気侭に、すべて愛せる強さが欲しい

今日も急ぎがちな人波を見送る様に
幼い木の葉が揺れている
またはじまるよ・・・さあ僕らもそろそろゆこう

幾重にもかさなる世界で、時の流れに身を任せて
この先も、いつでも二人の歩みを続けてゆこう

永遠なんて望みはしない、たとえちっぽけでも構わない
確かに、今ここに僕らがいること
それが幸せ


さよなら旅人さん
これから何処へゆくの?
再び会えたらまた聞かせてね、旅の話

巡る月日の果て、またいつかここに来よう
人はきまぐれ、僕らもそう
行き先なんて時と共に変わる・・・だから

あまりにも大きな世界で、時代の担い手追いかけて
生き争い傷を負っても、それでも命を繋ぐ

たった一つのこの想いを、汚される事があるのなら
再び立ち上がり、僕は何度でも戦うだろう

終わりゆく物語のページめくればそこは白紙
描いてみよう、僕らのシナリオ

さあ、はじまるよ!

幾重にもかさなる世界で、時の流れに身を任せて
この先も、いつでも二人の歩みを続けてゆこう

永遠なんて望みはしない、たとえちっぽけでも構わない
確かに、今ここに僕は立っている
君が傍にいる

大き過ぎる世界でもいい
小さ過ぎた二人でもいい、歩んでゆこう

永遠なんて望みはしない、たとえちっぽけでも構わない
確かに、今ここに僕らがいること
それが幸せ
