Once again, welcome to The Monthly Terra. Here we’ll be providing a summary of our presence on Twitter over the month of May to fill you in on any cool stuff you may have missed, and in doing so provide a recap of any and all Kazamatsuri.org happenings over the month. If there’s anything especially important that I think you should see, such as news that didn’t get posted on the blog, it’ll be displayed in bold. Let’s get started!
May 1: Forum member Takafumi starts work on spriting Suginami for Little Busters!
Got a bit of discussion going. Who’s your favourite underappreciated Key character?
May 2: Ended up missing Naoyuki’s birthday, but gave him a few retweets.
Kotarou Tennouji’s birthday! Discussion thread here. He didn’t get as much love as some other Key characters, but there were a couple of tweets.
Forum spotlight. How did you first discover Key?
An update on Takafumi’s Suginami sprite.
May 4: Kyousuke Natsume’s Birthday! There were heaps of tweets for him; he’s still a very popular character. And so the May birthday rush comes to a close.
May 5: Sayuri Kurata’s Birthday! Kanon girls don’t get as much love these days, but I did see this nice cosplay.
I stumble upon @tsukigusa’s Twitter account, where he regularly posts Rewrite fanart. Pretty cool account to follow! I end up RTing all of his new art.

May 13: Kotomi Ichinose’s Birthday! Discussion thread here. Here’s one tweet I liked.
May 13 is also significant for another reason in the Key fandom. It’s the date that Little Busters’ story begins! I created a thread to commemorate it, and started posting mini-reflections for each day of the common route. Eventually I couldn’t keep up the pace, but I plan to finish it when I have some time.
Forum member Bonecuss teases a project of his own: recreating the Little Busters baseball minigame.
