Key... A company that has changed my life. … Key... A company that has changed my life. It's hard to express wih words the impact that your productions had on me, and how much they've changed me. I'm talking about both your popular animes and your acclaimed visual novels. Your stories of happiness, of sadness, of hope, and lots of other feelings have reached me like no other production has ever done before. Your magnificent songs and compositions permeate in my head even today, making me remember of all the moments I've passed with Key works. From "Last Regrets" to "Song for Friends", from "Philosophyz" to "Ichiban no Takaramono", they are all unforgettable songs that can summon diferent feelings on me each time they are played. Your charismatic characters that are so unique, easily recogniseable by a brief description or little voice clips. Nagisa Furukawa, Ayu Tsukimiya, Rin Natsume and, why not, all the others I couldn't mention... Even though they are all fictional characters, I fell like they are close friends of mine, which I know their personalities and their personal tastes.
I only know Key for about one year, but I already feel like I'm a huge fan of the company and it's works. I started it all by watching CLannad's anime and then I didn't stop anymore. I've read "Little Busters", "Kanon", "Rewrite"; I've seen "Angel Beats!" and most of the anime adaptations of your visual novels; I've listened again and again to your unmatchable soundtracks. Even though I'm from Brazil (a country where piracy reigns), I worked hard to buy all of your original products I could. It costed a fortune, but I've managed to buy new copies of "Little Busters!" and "Rewrite" (the visual novels), as well as your anime adaptations and some soundtracks too. It doesn't matter the price charged here in the west: I may not have a lot of money, but I worked really hard so I could buy your original, legitimate works and be proud of myself by doind the right thing.
Key, I congratulate you for your birthday and I sincerely hope that you will continue creationg your wonderful stories that have captivated countless fans around the world. 15 years was just the beggining, may another 15 years come to you! Again, congratulations Key, and thank you very much for all the moments you've provided me. I am eternally grateful to you.
PS: I can't wait for the Little Busters! anime! It's my favorite Key work and I'm really willing to see it animated!
PS2: May this and all these other messages reach you, so you can see that us from the west are actually willing to buy western releases of your games. Believe me, the "Clannad" brand is really popular around here, and an official release of the visual novel in full English would be a great sucess!
