I don’t know, Yerian. For me those sketches are a clear guide, I believe we can have an idea of what’s different.
I think they’re showing us what to expect (at least the basic), and maybe images are reference images for their animators. Probably…
We can extrapolate a little bit, based on the information we have and (not to judge) but to talk about what we feel about what we’re watching.
Anyway, please do understand this: (just in case I wasn’t clear enough)
I like the new style, it’s OK, modern.
And I’m very happy to have Rewrite animated! I have faith on the project.
And there will be differences, just like in every adaptation…
Side note: a friend of mine (a painter) also felt the same. She saw them knowing the originals and told me her opinion. And I believe some people on this forum too… Only time will tell, for all of us.
Not judging, just thinking about what we are actually seeing. And wishing that their aspect will represent their character accurately.
Am I alone on this feeling about Akane?
It looks OK, but it is more… anime-friendly perhaps?
Anyway, it’s just an opinion.
I like to discuss this with others in order to see what they see and feel. It’s like a “market research”. Because they people can see something completely different than you and me, and it may be even good for the anime (I wish the anime success).
Again, only time will tell with precision… even then, we’ll look the same thing with different eyes. That’s how it works.
P.S.: I still remember all our speculations about Charlotte, some were wrong, but a lot of them were correct. Fun and interesting days!
