Shinji Orito confirmed for Anime Expo, and a Key Fan-Party announced!


Some very exciting news for attendees of Anime Expo 2016! On their Facebook page, VisualArt’s have announced that Shinji Orito, famed composer of Key’s music, will be present on all 4 days at the VisualArt’s booth to give autographs to fans!

While they have mentioned that “Panels are not planned”, they did tease at something else they’re arranging: a “Key Fan-Party” at a local restaurant! This seems to closely resemble a similar event that was held at Japan Expo Paris last year, where fans who either pre-ordered a kakejiku or won a quiz were invited to eat and chat at a restaurant with VisualArt’s staff.

UPDATE 1: VisualArt’s have added merchandise details for their three upcoming overseas events. Included in among the merch are specially crafted and autographed Kakejiku valued at $1000 each!

UPDATE 2: VisualArt’s have announced details of the Key Fan Party!


Rejoice, you don’t need to spend $1000 to gain entry! VisualArt’s have provided three options to reserve a ticket, with a spend of $200 guaranteeing you entry.

We’ve prepared an Anime Expo 2016 topic for discussion of the event, where we’re listing all Kazamatsuri members that will be in attendance. At the time of writing this we have an unprecedented 9 members confirmed attending the expo! This is bound to be the biggest gathering of Kazamatsuri members in history, so if you’re also attending, be sure to let us know in the Anime Expo topic!
