People from various worlds and across different universes attend Kaginado Academy, a school of which its creation can only be attributed to a miracle. While everyone is trying to lead a normal school life, the clash of bustling personalities causes many of the students to beg questions about their world and the complexes they brought with them.

Ryou Fujibayashi feels like her life is dictated by how she is judged by others, expressing her jealousy toward other girls. Yukito Kunisaki constantly finds himself out of place and neglected, continuing to wander around unemployed and penniless. Meanwhile, Ayu Tsukimiya keeps running into the most untimely of situations—all while crashing into her surroundings along the way. Such is life at Kaginado Academy, and all the fourth wall breaking and comedic antics that come with it!

STORY: Kaginado doesn't have a true set story or anything like that. It's simply a hilarious comedy show based in a high school setting that brings many of Key's works ...

"My child, please listen carefully..."

There´s a forgotten girl.
A girl in the sky.
A girl with a strange disease.
A shy girl playing baseball.
A girl in the moon.
And a girl who wants to see the stars.
These 6 make me who i am today. Without KEY, we may have not have had the impact on drama/romance visual novels or anime we have today. The fantastic character designs and personality; the comedy genious laying around in every episode making me laugh my ass off and the climax scenes turning every man into a crybaby; all of this adds up for unforgetable experiences within our hearts.

Yet one question remains. What ...

Warning: If you don't watch or read/play Kanon, AIR, Clannad (including Tomoyo After VN), Little Busters, Planetarian and Rewrite beforehand or still halfway through them, please do finish them before watching. You'll getting on very heavy spoiler as early as episode 1. You have been warned.

This is a gift to all loyal Key fans that has been staying and crying for whatever all those series throughout their 21 years of existing. Having many of these series make a comeback with half of them last having an appearance a decade ago, truly they brought much nostalgia to everyone who had known this either via the VN ...
