I want KyoAni with this. Somehow Key + KyoAni just fits.

Maeda Jun ... wins.

And I'm really excited ! I've liked every serie from Key and this seems a little different.

A voice of reason. Personally I'd like to see how SHAFT would handle a Key story.

The Visual Novel has been announced since April.
Mmmmm it seems it was just announced as an anime rather than a VN...

I'd much prefer to stick with KyoAni since it just plain works. ufotable would be interesting but SHAFT would be hit or miss.

I'm not sure if I got what you meant but they announced in April that Angel Beats! is NOT an RPG.

Two different projects with two different staffs

Rewrite = Game with scenario by Ryukishi07 (Higurashi) and character design by Itaru Hinoue (Air/Kanon/Clannad)

Angel Beats! = Anime with scenario by Jun Maeda (Air/Kanon/Clannad) and character design by Na-Ga (Little Busters!)

Actually, looking at Aniplex's most recent partnerships, I think the safest guess would be A-1 Pictures (Kannagi, Kuroshitsuji)

Jun Maeda - good
Kyo Ani - damn, DO NOT WANT. All their latest works are disgustingly LS-styled.

That's more than enough of a reason for me. *Goes to add to "Plan to watch"-list...only to find that the series isn't listed on MAL yet*

*Orgasims over thought of more Key Projects* Wonder if the soundtrack to it will equal that of all their others, it might even beat Air or Clannads music :o

You got trolled by 2ch. No detailed staff information announced in G's magazine. The scan doesn't contain such information, either.

Well the list is the same as Kannagi staff. I guess someone tried to tease Yamamoto Yutaka again. He is checking 2ch.

The character design is pretty... normal. I would like it better if it had the same character design as Air, Kanon and Clannad.

You want Gonzo to go completely bankrupt so badly? XD

Somehow I'm not excited about that. Key was just repeating themselves in all their project starting with Clannad, and even if this story is somewhat different from what they usually do, I'm afraid it will be another cliche galore.

Also, this:

That first girl sure looks like Suzumiya Haruhi.

Funny. I read the same line and my stomach turned a little bit.

Jun Maeda needs to grow up and write something less generic. This is a step in the wrong direction.

Aniplex like A-1 Pictures is a owned by Sony. Aniplex is their music arm and A-1 Pictures was formed to be their anime studio. A-1 Pictures are off to a great start... a lot of their projects have been very good sellers on DVD... Ookiku Furikabutte, Kuro Shitsuji and Kannagi have all sold over 10,000 copies per volume.. the first two over 15,000.

I agree. I read the premise and saw the girl characters on the website...honestly imagining those two together in an anime is not pretty. Sounds too far fetched and lame.
