The official website for the Key's crossover television anime titled Kaginado revealed two cast change, main staff, and key visual (pictured) on Friday.

“KAGINADO Academy”. The characters that have wringed out gallons of tears from Key fans all over the world for the past 20 years gather in this utopia... of sorts. Now they are moving not only the fans’ emotions but the barriers dividing their worlds as well, to enjoy a new school life in a whole new world. Free, fun, and filled with joy. A dreamlike story is about to begin.

Asami Sanada (Date A Live) will be replacing Tomoko Kawakami as Misuzu Kamio from Air, who passed away in 2011 after a long battle with ovary cancer. Sara Takeda is replacing Asami Okamoto as Kano Kirishima.

Is this the answer from Key to Type-Moon's Carnival Phantams...?

Honestly it's been so long since I've watched any of these animes that I wonder if I remember enough things to enjoy this crossover.

One hopes it will be as funny and/or popular as Carnival Phantasm was.

Damn I just learned this news today and this is really unexpected. It is like dream come true for Key fans. Unfortunately, I have not played Summer Pockets yet in case they will suddenly introduce Summer Pocket's casts as I have only seen the main 5(Air, Kanon, Clannad, Little Busters, Rewrite) and their TV only series(Angel Beats, etc).

I'm a big fan of Isekai Quartet, so if this replicates that, I'm definitely gonna love this lol

I have to assume that it will be a short-lived anime...
