I actually have some free time to post to this blog. As work has been stressful these past few weeks, a little time to escape was something much needed. That came in the form of Katuscon which was held in National Harbor in the DC area recently
Anyways, to the main topic of this blog post. Although I'm sure at least one if not more people have thought of this already. As anime fans, I'm sure most of you are familiar with the series by Key/Visual Arts Kanon, Air, and Clannad. As popular as those 3 series are, Key/Visual Arts has managed to capture the hearts of its fans with its emotionally charged stories and lovable characters over the past 10 years.
As CLAMP has managed to craft an entirely original story using many of its memorable characters, including Sakura of CCS, Chii of Chobits, and numerous others for Tsubasa Chronicles, would it be possible for Key/Visual Arts to do the same?
There's certainly enough characters that this could be done with, but the question is, "What would be the setting and the story?"
This multi-part blog I will be exploring a possible idea and how I would cast the characters. One thing I do want to keep in mind is retaining recognizable elements of each of the characters. And with that, this is what I would start with:
President - Tomoyo Sakagami (Clannad)
Vice President - Sayuri Kurata (Kanon)
??? - Kyou Fujibayashi (Clannad)
??? - Kano Kirishima (Air)
Activities Council Head - Jun Kitagawa (Kanon)
1st year class (Freshmen):
Ryou Fujibayashi (class rep)
2nd year class (Sophomore/Junior)
Nagisa Furukawa (one year back due to illness)
Minagi Tohno (class rep)
3rd year class (Seniors)
Rei Nishina (class rep)
Sanae Furukawa (Teacher)
Kouko Ibuki (Teacher)
Akiko Minase (Teacher)
Misae Sagara (Teacher)
Toshio Komura (Teacher)
Akio Furukawa (Sports Coach)
Haruko Kamio (Sports Coach)
Yusuke Yoshino (Sports Coach)
Hijiri Kirishima (School Nurse/Doctor)
As far as overall storyline, because of the sheer amount of characters, this could get quite chaotic, though I'm wondering if it could be pulled off in the style of My-Hime/My-Otome. This of course is probably material to do fanfics which I haven't done in quite a long time.
