Sorry, I'm not that good with colouring at the computer

The key is based on episode 12. Even though it isn't the last episode of Say I Love You, for me it already has a perfect ending for a story about a wallflower. I'll start with the end of a key wich is a little hart with 'love' written on it. The hart stand for all the love Yamato has given to mei. Like a seed, from that love came a flower. The little round beads above the heart stand for the blue bracelet Yamato gave to Mei and the colour blue is also from the ending song. I know it wasn't in this episode but I love the ending Above the beads there ia a bigger blue stone with wings. It represents mei's father in heaven. In the episode she thought about her father and about the feeling of kindness en feeling protected. The little wings on the chain represents the feeling of being protected. In the episode you also see a few 'enemies' who gave mei trouble, the spirals above the stone represents the troubles Mei survived to get where she is now. The diamondlike stone above that stands for Mei's mother who is a base where Mei always can get support and love from. Above that there is a flower with a cat in the middle. The flower stands for Mei's kimono that also had pink flowers on it, but also for Mei's hidden beauty that finally appeared. the six flowerpieces also stand for the friends of Mei. All six were enjoying the festival. The white cat stands for Mei and her pet cat. I also made a matching keychain (for yamato) at the right in a form of a cat and beads like the bracelet Yamato gave to Mei. You can put a photo in it, but you have to put the first keychain on it to unlock it ad see the picture. When you put the keychain on it, you can read 'I Love You' like at the ending of the episode. For me this keychain is Mei itself; a wallflower that finally became a beautiful flourishing flower.

wellll I liked entering this contest, I'd love to win, but i see so many beautiful keychains here Well I gotta say I love this anime so much. I already readed the manga before the anime, but i loved to see it. The story is so beautiful especially because I can relate to Mei because I'm a wallflower too and had bad friends I hope I can be like Mei someday But i hope they make a second season of it or at least go further with the manga LOVE IT ps: Sorry for bad English

Ok Here's Mine c:
i thought i'd keep it simple yet meaningful c:


So this Phone strap is based on the episodes when Yamato-kun was modeling.
the little Key part at the bottom is suppose to be in the form of a camera, representing Yamato-Kun.
and the top of the key with the little cat cut-out is suppose to represent Mai-Chan >w<
the reason i chose a cat shape was because Mai would always cuddle her cat when she was worried.
and the beads twisting around the key is suppose to be the same beads from the bracelet both Yamato-Kun and Mai-Chan have.
it shows that they are bound together and that they have a strong bond! c:

I hope you like :3

You may only submit one entry.

I am just quoting the original post. The rules are rather simple so creativity seems to the goal. If it is a set, you could put them together in one post.

You have less than 4 hours to post it, if you have not already done it.

Mine is for episode 4 and is the key that Kakeru would give to Mei (though she would reject it like in the episode). The stem of the key is surrounded with rose thorns and the heart ruby is cracking and breaking. The background pattern is a modified royalty free pattern that I bought from istock.

Mine is based on Episode 11 'Parade'

Is a couple set keychain!
The blue one is for the boyfriend
and the red one for the girlfriend





If you can't read the letters, there we go:

This set of keychains is based from the date between Yamato and Mei in LAND.
Mei’s keychain has the form of a shell with a red jewel representing ‘A seed trying to bloom‘, as we can see Mei trying to change herself for Yamato.
Yamato’s one has a diamond form, showing how precious he is (I mean... he is nice + a caring person + physically attractive = what else can you ask for?)
Also I included the LAND logo to make the set like a souvenir from the amusement park
The black cat is Kuro (representing Yamato) and the white cat is Marshmallow (representing Mei).
When you put the keys together, they create a heart. The wings symbolizes the innocence of their love and the crown the power of it

Here is my magic key

It is inspired in episode 2, the little creatures on both sides represent friendship, because in this episode Mei makes her first friend (Asami) and she gift her a little plushie to put on her cellphone. The heart reeflects the first kiss of Mei and last the wings represent the big change in Mei's life.

Hope you like it, and sorry for my bad english

[Close Up]


This is my key. It's inspired by episode 12 - I'll Protect You. I designed the flower to match the Yukata that Mei wore when she ran to meet Yamato towards the end. It symbolizes her opening up and moving closer to him. It also symbolizes their love in full bloom. The three flares are for the fireworks that brought the different characters together. And finally, the two hearts on the strap are Mei and Yamato.

I wanted to keep it simple and cute... Just like Mei ^.^

I hope you guys like it.. And good luck to everyone who entered!! ヽ(*・ω・)ノ

hi! ok, this key is based on the first episode "we kissed".
the heart represents Mei. it's red but also grey from all the pain she has been through.
the blue spheres are barriers to protect her. the blue is also her purity because she doesn't want to feel pain anymore but she would never hurt someone the way she was hurt.
the sword represents Yamato, because he saves her before more damage is done to her heart and vows to protect her.
it's all the colors of the rainbow because that's the kind of person he is; a rainbow is positive just like him.
the yellow light is the sword piercing through the barrier!
and at the bottom is a cut-out of Yamato and Mei. it's the scene after he kisses her. around them is the night sky.

This is the special key chain that I designed for Land. The episode I chose to use for my idea was "Say I Love You" episode nine: Each and Every. The plot in episode nine in which I chose to use is the point in which Yamato decides to buy the couple rings for his and Mei's key chains. The other part that is represented is Yamato's and Mei's love for one another. The red heart surrounds the pink heart in a slight embrace this represents Yamato's love for Mei in episode nine. The point in which he decides to buy the ring for Mei's keychain is represented by the embrace of the red heart and the couple rings attached to the key chain. The girl's ring is represented in copper, while the guys ring is represented in bronze. The pink heart represents her love for Yamato, it's smaller than his heart, because she is new to love. The black cat within the red heart represents Yamato, while white cat within the pink heart represents Mei.

Ok. Time to get to buisiness ✧・゚: *✧・゚:* \(◕△◕✿)/ *:・゚✧*:・゚✧

Here is my entry~ (I just spent 6 hours rewatching the whole series just to get the correct references 。:゚(。ノω\。)゚・。 )



Something different; not your usual keychain, but hopefully it's effective!

Rather than this key being based on one single episode, it is based off several, and one revolving theme -

'Now matter what hardships the seasons give us when we are in love; if it's a true and pure kind of love, then we are able to overcome them because we have each other and those whom we love around to help and support us.'

The episodes that I noticibally referenced are -

-Episode 2 - Blue phone strap that Asami gave Mei
-Episode 4 - Couple bracelets given my Yamato
-Episode 5 - Nagi's cookies, Yamato#2
-Episode 7 - Gingko leafs
-Episode 12 - Wind chime, Camellia flower,

Visually speaking, here is a desciption of the keychain concept design itself -

The key itself is a majority of silver and tinted stainless steel - hence the lowly saturated colors pictured. The figure with the wings is meant to be a representation of Mei, in a form of an angel, holding a golden heart adorned with a red gem containing a small keyhold (the red heart can be pushed and spun around inside the golden border). The gold ring above her head serves a similar purpose as the one in the anime and can be seen as a halo as well. Hanging from this ring is a piece of paper, as associated with wind chimes. Moving downwards, there is a ginkgo leaf, icicle, cherry blossom, cookie, bow, plush bunny and cat; all in tinted stainless steel. (If it isn't apparent, similar beads from Yamato's and Mei's bracelets are also pictured towards the middle) Just below that mound of objects is blue fluff, and right below that is a small Camellia flower. There is a pink/purple gradient ribbon tied along the stem of the key
.

Phew~ Ok, now onto the explainations and whatnots. ಥ ⌣ ಥ

The reason why Mei is represented as an angel is because of 2 reasons - 1 being that angels are often used as a picture of innocence. In the anime and manga, Mei is untouched and uncorrupted by what's around her. She lived a life of solitude, isolating herself from her fellow classmates, and was unable to experience the supposedly regular life of a high school student. Her reasons and purpose for living that kind of lifestyle were are solely based off what had happened to her in the past. Living a life away from the tempations, bad influence, rumors, gossip, left Mei an innocent student. 2 Angels are also used as pictures of purity and sincerity. Once Mei had found love with Yamato, she had developed sincere feelings for him. She was new to love, and so was he. She didn't know what to expect, and what would happen if she decided to continue loving him, but she knew that her feelings were true. No matter whatever or whoever pushed her down, she tried keeping a stoic face, keeping in all the tears and hurt that came with it. A single tear leaves Mei face while keeping up a smile on the keychain because later on the series she realizes that she has friends who would lend her a shoulder to cry on when she just couldn't handle the pain alone.

Ever heard the saying that we lock our hearts to love? Mei at first was a very resilient girl, she didn't want herself to be associated with Yamato, she had closed off her heart to him. Little by little, he was able make his true feelings apparent to her. You can say that Yamato was the key, the key to opening Mei's heart, and letting her experience the world around her that she never knew. However, since he's the key, he can both unlock, and lock her inner emotions. A heart is truely a complicated thing, isn't it?

A cherry blossom, wind chime, gingko leaf, and icicle are all here for a reason you know. These are placed here to represent the coming and going seasons. A cherry blossom is usually associated with Spring, wind chimes are commonly placed during the Summer time, yellowing gingko leads are often seen falling during the Fall season, and ice and snow begin to form once Winter makes its way to Japan. This holds a more deeper meaning than the seasons themselves though. It may or may have no been brushed up on the anime, but in the manga, it states that Mei and Yamato had been dating for more than a year. Over the seasons, they had experienced a lot of things, together, for better and for worse. Their love had continued to stay strong even when what was in store for them conflicted with their relationship. Their love for each other was able to help them make it through it all.

Having the beads disassembled rather than linked shows that even if they are sepereated, their very presence and reassurance is enough to know that they are there for each other. Mei mentions that everytime she recognizes the bracelet, she thinks of having Yamato next to her, and reminding her that she is not alone.

The bow is a common symbol for femininity. After Mei falls in love, she appears to be (much) cuter~ She even grows out her hair and starts paying more attention to her clothing choices.

The cookie symbolizes her connection with Yamato's little sister, Nagi. Mei was able to get her feelings through to Nagi, resulting in Nagi accepting Mei as her brother's boyfriend, and as a friend. She was able to show her the light of how her life was changed through of the help of her brother, making her realize that not everyone will dismiss you at their convinience.

The plush bunny and cat offer a small significance with Nagi as well. Nagi keeps a collection of stuffed animals that she made herself, and this also signifies the link she was able to establish with Mei. (the pink bunny ended up looking kind of like Yamato #2 ^ o ^' and the cat ended up lookin a bit like Mashmallow orz) Other than the fact that they are plush, both these animals play a role in the anime. In the first episode of the anime, Mei's elementary class had kept a pet bunny, however she was placed with blame once it had died, resulting in her isolation. You can argue that the cat looks a bit like Mei's pet cat, Marshmallow, but this cat is merely used as the bond Yamato and Mei were able to create through the discovery of a stray cat.

In episode 12 of the anime, Mei wears a yukata for the Summer Festival and was wearing a pink/purple Camellia flower in her hair (although I made it look like a rose ; u ;). A Camellia is interperated as a flower whom young lovers appreciate. It shows the devotion that they have towards another. I believed that this flower was a great symbol for Mei's and Yamato's love for each other. Having the flower in full bloom also shows just how much Mei's character had developed throughout the series.

Lastly, I incooperated a ribbon to show the fragile, yet beautiful and strong bond that comes with falling in love~

. . .

I'm done. I'm finally done. After spending 2 hours typing this up. /le crey

So my design is based off of episode two. The top part of a key is a heart and each side represents yamato and mei, mei's side being blue and yamato's being red. Mei's side is blue because it represents her ability to be calm and tell the truth like in episode two how she helped kenji confess his feelings to asami. Yamato's side is red because of his intense passionate feelings toward mei like at the end of the episode when Yamato was showing mei the different types of kisses. There are two x's inside the heart and it is mei and yamato, but it also is the roman numeral for the number 20(to relate with the actual land key) It also has lips inside the middle to represent the first kiss that connected yamato and mei. The gold on the inside of the key is in the shapes of thorns from a flower stem, representing how something that seems beautiful can also hurt, like in the episode how mei figured out about yamatos first love, it also represents how Mei is still trying to protect herself from being hurt. at the end of the heart there are two cellphones, red being Yamatos and blue being mei's but with Mei's ive added the fluffy keychain that asami gave her in the episode. There is a pink heart jewel on the top representing yamato's and mei's love, there are also hearts at the end of the key which are blue and red, being mei and yamato.finally on the pole part of the key there is a blue tear drop, being mei's issues she still has to deal with and slowly down the key red starts to form with it and at the end there is a purple heart,being mei and yamato's love slowly forming.

I purposely made the stones and ribbon stand out because I wanted it to be the focus: relationship being tied together by two different beings. The stones are made from the bracelets of Mei and Yamato's bracelet. Together (represented by Mei as a cat because originally before meeting yamamoto, she had a special interest for cats and Yamato as a rabbit because he is depicted as such by his sister) they build the relationship of love (heart) together. Rabbits and cats have different lifestyles, like Mei and Yamato. But because of certain circumstances, they were brought together and want to build on the relationship (the bottom portion represents a staircase that they must ascend, like all couples or relationships). Where the rabbit and the cat are sitting on is a bench, where teh conversation took place.

And the center piece is the cellphone* (below the heart stone). Because communication is key in relationships, it is the foundation of the heart piece**
