Maeda Jun is working on creating the game for Angel Beats at the moment, or so I hear on some of the Japanese sites. Here's a link for reference for those who can read Japanese

For once, I'd like someone else to try their hand at Key. Paging ufotable?

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

But, oh god that would be interesting.


Key's works have now been animated by four different studios, Toei, KyoAni, P.A. Works and J.c. Staff.

For a minute I thought a 2nd season of Angel Beats was coming.

You should do a search option of anything that has Angel Beats in its title. Not bring up an old topic where it may trick some users into thinking there's something new about the series...

The animation looks promising (if promotion pictures say anything about animation, that is) even though a different studio is animating it, so...
I'm in.
I'm also in for some Kyoto-animated Little Busters! after this.

Why not do Little busters before this o.o?????????!??!?!?!?!?

But oh well more Key stuff isn't bad at all.

Also, P.A. Works is good news. They don't troll viewers and milk the moe fans like KyoAni, and I daresay their animation is at the very least on par with KyoAni's, probably better.
Their writers are as mediocre as KyoAni's, but there's not much you can do to salvage a Key story. :v
