He is a second-year high school student who has a bright personality and is sociable to others. Rewrite enables him to permanently restructure and modify any part of his body, including his blood, so as to increase his physical skills. Every time Kotarou uses his Rewrite ability, he uses up some of his life-force and becomes closer to being a full familiar.
Ironically, the shorter hentai OVA has a more coherent plot. Their favoured tropes include: Key seems to have a thing for baseball. To a minimal extent. All the visual novels come in clean versions, which in some cases are better for the lack of a shoehorned sex scene.
A lot of their works, but even moreso with Angel Beats! Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Key seems to have a colouring scheme to determine what year a character is in.
Green is freshman, red is junior, and blue is senior. We go from a simple story about high school sweethearts moving in together Dousei to a story about a girl investigating a murder in a creepy psychic sex cult. The male leads are usually this.
Most plots involve this. Especially when the downers happen. No Key character is without a Dark and Troubled Pastsave for maybe the odd comic relief side character. Justified in Angel Beats! Earn Your Happy Ending: The company in general seems to go back and forth on this, with some games getting H releases and others not, which is quite odd considering practically none of the sex scenes in them impact the plot anyway.
Half of their work has one of these as the main protagonist. The other half just has at least one as a secondary or minor character. In most of their games, at least one girl Joshikousei: Well, considering most of their work involves a high school in some way Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Most of the protagonists, with the main pairings tending to have the troll-and-derp dynamic.
Strangely enough, in Angel Beats! Killed Off for Real: Key Visual Arts is notable for lending the name to the term for non-interactive novels, but has since then been used to describe novels of a similar nature.
Common in their work. Most often happens to male leads, Kanon and Clannad being prime examples. Very, very present in their works, as while the focal points of their stories are character interactions and school life, the framing for the story usually ends up being something supernatural.
Depending on how much foreshadowing leads up to the eventual reveal, the magical element is used to either greatly explain or handwave many of the story developments. How the magic itself works is rarely explained. Rewrite takes this trope and runs wild with it to the point where it becomes a straight-up Urban Fantasy.
Misuzu is the reincarnation of a cursed girl. Makoto is a fox spirit. Ayu is an Astral Projection of a girl in a coma. Many of the visual novels usually have kind-hearted characters the audience can sympathize with when tragedy strikes on them. Even though they are visual novels where you can end up with any of the heroines, there is always a girl the protagonist is "destined" to be with in a True End.
Or less of the characters in the same game, especially girls. The arts change each game, but this trope does not. A lot of the sex scenes have a bad habit of employing this, and then acting like nothing went wrong. The scenes are often Out of Character on the part of both participants at least a little, too, and much of the fanbase ignores them.
AIR might be the most prominent example since it focuses heavily on this trope as well as Angel Beats! It should also be noted that all of them do not view death as something that would fit in a linear timeline and there have been several cases and implications of certain characters being reincarnated into the past.
