It all started with an April Fools’ joke that featured a crossover between Key titles like Kanon, Air, Clannad, Little Busters!, and Rewrite. But now, it seems that it’s really happening! During the “KSL online 2021 -Kaginado-” event, they announced that Kaginado will indeed happen. The series will feature the five anime, and they’re promising to add even more. They also launched an official website as well.
In other words, this is kinda like Isekai Quartet… but with series from Key Visual Arts. Though don’t expect some feels for the new series. After all, this was originally an April Fools’ joke.
Jun Maeda worked on the visual novels for four of the titles, as well as their music. They are Kanon, Air, Clannad, and Little Busters!. In other words, he worked on all of the revealed titles except for Rewrite. Unfortunately, they did not reveal whether or not he will be involved in this new series. However, they did reveal that it will premiere in October 2021.
The event did not reveal any further details, though they are promising that more Key series are going to be added. Expect the staff to reveal more details about this new anime in the days to come.
