Clannad - Summer Pockets - Netflix
Summer Pockets is a Japanese visual novel developed by Key, a brand of VisualArt's. It was released on June 29, 2018 for Windows and is rated for all ages. Summer Pockets is Key's 13th game, along with other titles such as Kanon, Air, and Clannad. The story is set on a fictional island on the Seto Inland Sea and follows the life of Hairi Takahara, a young man who uses the recent death of his grandmother as an excuse to escape to the island after an unpleasant incident. Once there, he gets to know four girls who are the focus of the story. The game's concept is by Jun Maeda, who felt that the game needed to make readers cry. Kai was brought in to direct the project, as well as co-write the scenario with Hasama and Yū Niijima. Maeda decided not to write the scenario due to similarities in themes with Key's visual novel Air, which he primarily wrote. Although Air also features a rural, seaside setting during the summer, the development team aimed for Summer Pockets to have a different feeling to it. Nostalgia and the maternal bond are prominent themes in the game. Na-Ga is the chief artist and character designer, and additional character designs are provided by Tsubasu Izumi, Yūnon Nagayama and Fumuyun. The game's soundtrack was composed by Maeda, Shinji Orito, Donmaru, Tomohiro Takeshita and Ryō Mizutsuki.
