Dear everybody at Key, be it past, present or future,

I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating masterpieces like CLANNAD and Little Busters! They are amazing both as games and anime, however I imagine this is all something you have heard before. I spent quite a while how to show my earnest thanks for creating these games, however I was unable to come up with anything that wouldn’t seem exactly the same as many other letters you have no doubt received. So I am afraid all I can offer is some flowery words that tries to express the vast array of emotions your games drew out of me as I played them. If I may, I would like to address the people involved in writing your games. I am something of an aspiring writer and have struggled time and time again to fit the supernatural, the magical elements into what is otherwise an ordinary story without resorting to the use of secret societies, different worlds, etc. So, reading CLANNAD and especially Little Busters! was an educational experience to say the least. I do not know how or why, but when these elements suddenly appear I do not question them like I do with many other stories. They seem to fit naturally into the world and it is truly astounding. Finally, I will say, that the characters you create are some of the most funny and painful characters I have ever seen. Truth be told I am also a fan of OVERDRIVE games, however that is mainly for the music that goes into their games, the other stuff is just a bonus. But I play your games because I want to know more about these characters and their lives. Even the most happy characters have tortured pasts, and watching them struggle to overcome these pasts and face tomorrow head on is something that is inspiring to me at least. Also, the gags are brilliant. As a fan, I hope you never stop creating stories that can delight me and bring me to tears in the space of a few minutes. As a writer to be, I hope I can someday write something that will bring the same joy to you as you have to me.

Sincerely,

A simple fan with a lot of dreams.
