MY GOD. Key and Ryuukishi07?! Maybe there will finally be a yandere Key character!

I really hope not...

In my opinion that might screw off the game.....

The main is going to die.
Thats for sure.
Did you guys saw its tagline?
"Could it possibly be rewritten, that fate of hers?"
"書き換えることが出来るだろうか。彼女の、その運命を。"
"Kakikaeru koto ga dekiru darō ka. Kanojo no, sono unmei o?"

Hah! Awesome.

Now I just hope that Little Busters! and Rewrite get animated. That would be pure win.

I thought it was an April Fools joke. <_<

I need to get this when it comes out. :D

i hope any subbers (VNs that is) will take on this, and fansub it for the ones who do not understand japanese... because a key game with higurashi writers = win writing.

The possibility of a Key game without a girl in poor health -- the mind boggles.

I wanna see it adopted to anime quick! LOL! They haven't release the game yet, eh?! Well, I'm expecting greater than Kanon, Air, Clannad from this one then.

so wich anime had Pachelbels Canon-D and irish music from the band Clannad as OP?
I would generally say they take their names from existing music, not only J-rock. well at least in Kanon they did mention it directly.


That does make sense, and Air is a Beethoven symphony as well...and "It's a Wonderful Life" from Tomoyo After is also a song. Can't figure out where Planetarian is from though =P

I assume that "Key" might hang together with the term Key in music.
like they are an element what is needed for composing their visual novel.

Why do they keep naming their games after J-Rock songs?...


wow, I just noticed that too. Both songs from j-rock bands that were in anime o_0

Of course, I'm interested in this because if the pattern follows as usual, we'll proberbly get a damn good anime out of it. However, with nearly all the original staff gone, will it still have that feel to it that the other 3 had?

I'm concerned, but still excited.
