why would you use keylight on a video that doesn't need keying? could you show us an example?

Either mask or use a difference matte keying:

If this doesn't work, use a roto-tracking method by using ie. trackeviz or some other script.

I don't quite understand your point but keylight is only used for (mostly) one colored background, so using it on anime isn't the right thing to do.
