Are we talking the first season or After Story? The first one was okay. Not memorable. I'm slowly forgetting most of it already. After Story is manipulative. It forces the viewer to feel immense amounts of sadness. I'll admit I cried. I cried rapids. But I firmly believe that the ending as well as the events that took place before the ending were manipulative. Yet, after all has been said, After Story is a significantly better story than the first season. It's also more memorable. So I'll give it a star~
After Story lost me by the ending. I don't know what the story wanted to prove by doing what it did, but it sure wasn't proving that it could neatly tie up a story. . . Still. I cried. Buckets. I had to put the buckets in larger buckets cause they were beginning to overflow with my tears. . .
I can't rewatch it. I'm afraid if I do, I'd lose all the testosterone in my body then slowly develop a chest. Though, I still feel a hollow beating pain whenever I watch Clannad After Story's Opening as well as Dango Diakazoku.
"Tomoya Okazaki is resentful of his life. His mother passed away from a car accident when he was younger, causing his father to resort to alcohol and gambling. While on a walk to school, he meets a strange girl named Nagisa Furukawa who is a year older, but is repeating due to illness. Due to this, she is often alone as most of her friends have moved on. The two begin hanging out and slowly, as time goes by, Tomoya finds his life shifting in a new direction."
I think its the most emotional anime I've ever seen, the first season was nice and cute, then half way through the second season it really hits you in the heart, that was the first time I really cried when watching something XD
JK, I love all animes by Key Visual. I'm currently watching Little Busters. There hasn't been a twist yet, but I'm expecting one. Its Key Visual after all. Their style is, start normal and turn dramatic!
One of my friends is completely obsessed with it. Like whenever someone says "Clannad", she goes into a complete spazm xD. And she keeps telling that I absolutely have to watch it, which I will. She also plans on cosplaying it soon and wants me to join her :3
I watched half of it when it first came out, but didn't really go further than that. Thanks to your forum post, I am hunting it down to give it another try. Please don't be Spanish subs...please don't be Spanish subs....
