Rewrite is the latest visual novel from Key, the acclaimed creators of Clannad and various other titles. Shortly before the game’s release, Key released a second single dedicated to the game, “Rewrite”. While a great song, it didn’t deserve an exclusive single…


“Rewrite,” composed and sung by YOFFY and arranged by Kenichiro Ohishi, opens up with some beautiful piano work before moving into a rock anthem with some orchestral accompaniment. The male vocalist captures the energy of the track quite well and I love how, at times, the overall tone of the atmosphere gets a bit darker. Overall, it’s a very successful theme song.

Like the previous single, there’s a short game version and karaoke version of the song. There’s also a so-called instrumental version of this theme without vocals, but it’s more of a karaoke style, given the vocal melody isn’t replaced by an instrument.


In the end, this single is a little disappointing. There is only one song featured, albeit a good one, and no true B-sides or bonuses to speak of. Most would be better reserving their money for the Rewrite Original Soundtrack — featuring this song and a bunch more — instead.
