Interview on Kai the writer of Rewrite Anime on nizista(Japanese)
I think he didn’t say much information in this, but I think his way of thinking on the original game is interesting.
Picking up some information
The second season is based on the orignal game, but they made effort on making it more understandable.
Word of Dawn, the lyrics of which he wrote, he try to put words which he doesn’t use like 翠影 trying to express the worldview of Rewrite. He also try to make some connection to End of the World which was composed by Jun Maeda.
He said the key point of the 2nd Season is how Kotarou pursue possibility, which does not necessarily mean the growth of the protagonist. He thinks the theme of Rewrite is where they can expand the possility and what they chose to do that and he wants the audience to find the strength of humanity.
I deeply agree with his idea on the theme of Rewrite. I wonder why the 1st season became a bit awkward.
From the interview I felt some hope for the 2nd Season. I wish my expectation wouldn’t be betrayed…
