Why do you, or any of your employees that do other projects, have to make games/anime that are so damn sad? I've loved every one I've seen (Clannad, After Story, Kanon and Angel Beats) but I know it's going to make me cry. Why do I do this to myself?

Dear Key,

I hate you, but I love you so much D:

Regards,

D

P.S. Keep making games that can be turned into complete tearjerker animes.

It's good to see that no one, that's read this post anyways, has a sense of humor.

What I was trying to do was praise Key for their ability to make engrossing, yet sad, animes; however, everyone seems to have missed that. I didn't want to make a vanilla post saying "Key animation makes games that turn into sad animes" or "Personnel that work at Key can make a really sad anime", which would have been absolutely ridiculous as a post, so I wanted to spice it up a bit and make it somewhat interesting.

However, my thought process seems to have confused everyone that read my OP.

I posted this because I just finished watching Angel Beats, and I felt that they deserved a little praise for their ability to turn something seemingly innocuous into something completely spellbinding.

Also, I'm still trying to understand why this was reported. I didn't use any profane language, innuendos, or anything generally indecent.

It's good that you love Key's premises, and I get what you're trying to say, but tbh, I think the title of the thread was somewhat misleading. It's nice to be a bit inventive and spice up your actual message a bit, but some people like me would prefer something that you would consider as 'vanilla' and just straight with the point. Writing that you hate and love them at the same time doesn't really help either.

I just think it's better that most, if not all people get your message, rather than just some people who get your idea, and the rest who completely doesn't have a clue what you're talking about.

Anyway, to respond to your thoughts, I think Key definitely deserves praise for their Clannad + After Story (especially with AS), although I can't really say about Kanon and Angel Beats, since I've yet to watch neither of the series. Even though most of their character designs aren't always my cup of tea, each of their unique, likable personalities, combined with the powerful themes and emotions from the drama usually compensate for it.

I like Clannad the most ... then Angel Beats

I admire KEY for their tear-jerking moments, but I wouldn't consider their animes "sad". Sad to me usually means "depressing", but yea, KEY is definitely amazing at making emotionally moving animes. They make good use of their characters and the events that occur with each character.

My favorite series would probably be AIR TV. I liked Clannad, but I don't think it had as strong emotions as AIR TV. I liked Angel Beats as well, but it had more refreshing parts then emotionally moving IMO. And since I'm such an avid KEY fan, I'm actually currently watching Kanon (2006) right now. I love how their anime always warms my heart.

Key needs to make an anime every season rather than once a year

I got what you were saying. Don't let this setback get you down.
You have a creative mind and you choose to stand facing the opposite way rather than follow along like sheep.
If someone doesn't understand this is not your problem.
The one's that are lost upon your words; they need to expand their own knowledge and catch up.

lol wow... Well I hated every single one of those animes... They were not sad, they were just barely on the mediocre level of entertaining, but hey some people like pseudo-dramas like that. Also that company makes lots of money off of their awkwardly pathetic tear-jerkers so no worries they are sure to make more as the dough continues to roll in.

Also to all you people who apparently have no idea what a troll is at all... surprise! This is not a troll post! It's just a post! A weird post, but a regular old post nonetheless! Nothing troll like about it at all. Either state your opinion about the post or ignore it. It's not troll.

If I wanted to troll, I would have put this wonderful drawing as a post instead of actual words.
