Hey guys! I’ve been talking with @RyuuTamotsu and @Whitecrow, and they recently proposed to me that they’d like to create a doujin manga for inclusion with The K.E.Y. But we’ve been talking, and I thought that instead of just making it a single small submission, why don’t we make it a full-spec companion to The K.E.Y.? Maybe an optional bonus you can get when you acquire The K.E.Y. Improving on that idea, I suggested to Whitecrow, why not invite members of the community to help collaborate on this manga?
And that’s where we are now! @Whitecrow will be in charge of art while @RyuuTamotsu is in charge of writing, but what we’re hoping for is inviting some of our esteemed artists from the Kazamatsuri community to draw guest panels for the manga! The idea we’re running with at the moment is a crossover manga featuring all of the Key protagonists meeting together, probably in the Angel Beats! afterlife, reflecting back on their lives. My thought was that we could have flashback panels illustrated by guests in the Kazamatsuri community.
Oh, and if you have any doubts about Whitecrow’s talent, check out his amazing Rewrite doujin here! He’s the perfect guy for the job.
So, now we turn to you guys. I’d like you to nominate artists from the community who you believe would be fit to illustrate guest panels for the manga! Even people who aren’t active on Kazamatsuri. Or feel free to volunteer yourself! I know we have some really talented people here, so don’t be shy!
