Studio Key is well known for the highly emotional animes that brought anime fans to tears many times. Kanon, Little Busters!, Clannad, and Angel Beats! are all touching stories, praised by fans of the visual novels. Their latest title, Summer Pockets is a multimedia project, set on the same path.
The story of Summer Pockets revolves around the topic of nostalgic summer tales, a favorite plot in general for summer slice-of-life animes. Hairi Takahara has lost his grandmother and to get away from the painful incident, he moves to the island, Torishirojima. There he meets four mysterious girls with different stories to tell.
The original concept was written by Jun Maeda, responsible for titles like Angel Beats! and Clannad, which means that Summer Pockets has all the potential to become another tear-jerking tale.
