Rewrite+ by VisualArts
Far away in the city of Kazamatsuri, forestation and floriculture has caused the city to become panorama of trees, flowers and plants.

In this town, Kotarou Tennouji finds himself gifted with the ability to “rewrite” any part of his body to increase his strength and speed. Along with the occult society at his academy, Akane Senri , Kotori Kanbe, Chihaya Ohtori, Lucia Konohana and Sizuru Nakatsu, Tennouji finds himself drawn to the mysteries of Kazamatsuri and seeks out answers, friendship, love and conflict in an ever evolving world around him.
Following their collaboration on CLANNAD, Sekai Project and VisualArts are once again working on bringing one of their key visual novels to English-reading markets. Rewrite+ will be the complete edition of the visual novel.
