Nobody saw this coming, but the end of the world has happened.
Believe it or not, they choose the worst ending possible. I would have thought that at least there will be a happy ending, but I guessed wrong. Sakura had her way and basically caused the world to end. In short, Esaka attacked Kotarou when he saw Kagari. Shizuru came to stop and fight him, but it was already too late. Kotarou used too much of his powers that he was turning into a plant person. I would have thought that he will heed Sakuya’s warning, but I guess not.
You know what this means, right? Yep, it’s the bad ending since Guardian couldn’t take out Kagari. Salvation essentially happened with everyone disappearing from Earth thanks to Kagari’s decision. In short, Sakura basically got everything she wants. This upsets Kotarou given that if he had more time, he could have stop it. In short, the world effectively came to an end. Will he have better luck next time in the other possible endings? We’ll see in the next season.
I have to say that the show felt like the glass was half-empty. Sure, there were interesting and funny moments (such as Lucia punching Kotarou and Shizuru’s cuteness), it felt somewhat rushed. Not only that, Chihaya and Akane didn’t get much development. I suppose they will get developed more in the second season. As for Sakuya, I don’t care about him too much compared to the other characters.
Considering that the second season will air next winter, I may as well hold off on sharing my overall thoughts. As it stands, the first season of Rewrite does kind of make Charlotte look a bit better in comparison despite its flaws. The pacing could have been better, but hopefully it will improve in the sequel. ¶
