It was revealed on the official Twitter account of Tensho, the director of the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Rewrite visual novel that the anime will portray a “sixth” route left untold in the game, which will tell the story of “that girl.”
The original Rewrite visual novel had five main routes, centering on five different characters (Chihaya, Kotori, Shizuru, Lucia, and Akane). While the heroine Kagari (shown in the anime’s visual at right) is the main character and key to the story, she herself does not have a full-fledged route in the game. Rewrite anime series will premiere this July 2016 and it will feature the same voice cast from the visual novel.
