This anime is a life changer. It's really hard to describe using words. There's really nothing like it. You have to experience it for yourself to understand the feelings and emotions. So much passion in the scenes. I don't know what inspired the writer of this anime to write something like Clannad, but that son of a gun is my hero.

I feel like the writer poured their heart and soul into every sentence, word, letter, etc. This anime is a masterpiece. It is one of the first ones I watched, and forever will be my favourite. I will never ever forget this anime as long as I live. You cannot watch this anime without crying. It's literally impossible.

Everyone starts their journey that way. Though, years will pass and you will not be able to give less of a shit about that or any other chinese cartoon in general. You will only keep on watching simply out of habit. You will realize a lot of what you thought was good is actually shit.

Stay away from /a/ if you want to prolong the dream though.

The only forced drama was that virgin-esque over-the-top harem BS where the purple sisters actually cried when they realized they lost the Tomoya-bowl despite never actually participating in it. That dumb shit made me stop mid-marathon for a day before I could go back and finish watching it.

/a/ is the only board I browse, and I dislike Clannad AS. I can see why someone might like it, though I expect most of them watched it when they were newer to anime and young. If you can't admit that it is very flawed and has a lot of contrived and cheap drama, then you're just delusional.

I cared far more about the series' light-hearted aspects than its dramatic aspects. A lot of the characters except for Ryou were likable to at least some extent. The series most consistently enjoyable whenever the characters are happy and playing off of each other. Said times aren't exactly the most original of scenes but they're executed just fine. A lot of the "sadder" aspects of the series such as Nagisa's and Ushio's deaths don't have much of an impact because the story cuts corners to get them killed in a way that feels manipulative. Their impact on Tomoya as a character, which was the best thing to come from them dying, was completely thrown out the window for the sake of a shoe-horned happy ending. That doesn't mean I dislike all of the drama, though. The plotline involving Tomoya's relationship with his father was really well-developed and executed. I also liked the arc involving Sunohara in After Story. Despite those and Ushio's arc being the best parts of After Story, it's ultimately brought down by the aforementioned drama and the ending. In terms of enjoyability and execution, I like the first season more than After Story and I don't think it's worth the praise it gets.
>>
It didn't change my life but it did give me a useful example of something with a shit first season and great second season.
>>
tomoyo's route was better, for real
>>
>>133830492
I forgot to mention, season one still had some awful drama with the most notable example being when the losers of the Clannadmanbowl started crying, which was one of the hardest laughs I got in a while, and the stuff with Kotomi. Despite those, I still feel that season one is better than season two overall.
>>
The first season is genuinely awful though.

The characters all all horribly horribly written. AS only really escaped it by leaving most of the girls behind. I'm pretty glad I watched this show when I was younger and didn't notice those things, since I probably would never have seen the show otherwise.
>>
Key peaked when they made Air. Too bad it got a shit anime.
>>
>>133820039

I never really cared about the plot. What I liked was the atmosphere and Nagisa and Tomoya's relationship. Honestly I would have preferred if the entire second season was a SOL about the Okazaki family.

Anyone who thinks this is a legit criticism doesn't understand the show is an adaption of a VN. I mean, you are able to save her through the orbs of light, it's a fucking plot point.

I'm pretty sure they put everything that was important to the plot into the anime. At least that how I saw it atfer I read the VN.
If they peaked with Air then the last good thing they made was Refrain.

Well his entire post is buzzwords. There is no concrete praise there, just a list of emotions.

It's a terrible post but it's terribly common here.

>>133820039
Clannad is a little less than one cour of a good show sandwiched between 1.5 and 0.5 cours of a terrible fucking trainwreck.

The first season is just complete fucking rubbish, meaningless unfunny antics and insipid one-note walking cliches. After Story keeps going with too much of that until they graduate, which is when we get to the good part where the show focuses on a few core people in the cast and manages to actually make them relatable and human, and give them some adversity to get through that isn't *holds up spork* tier random bullshit.

We see an amazing character arc for Tomoya culminating in his tearful reconciliation with Ushio and as a nice encore also with his dad.

Unfortunately the writer's brain damage resurfaces at that point and Ushio gets KeyAIDS and the script takes a huge stinking steaming shit on all the themes it might've tried to communicate earlier, culminating in the most shitty deus ex machina "lol just kidding" ending you could possibly imagine.

Also fuck your magic dragon balls, they are terrible fucking storytelling because they are never significant or relevant, not once, before the very final part where they supposedly justify a complete trainwreck of an "it was just a dream" ending.

IIRC hadn't the girl and the robot been the set up for it the whole time though? Also, if you watch the OP of season one you see adult Fuuko finding Ushio next to the tree. The ending seems to have been planned in advance.

As for the orbs it's something to do with what Kotomi's parents were working on.
>>
>>133836715
>The ending seems to have been planned in advance.

Of course it was planned in advance, the orbs were in the source material (the Clannad VN). There you had to literally collect a specific number of them to get that ending.

It still doesn't make them any less retarded in the anime.

>>133836689
Okay, go ahead and tell us what tangible role the orbs themselves played in the events before the ending.

And no, "they appeared occasionally and some characters might maybe have seen them possibly" does not constitute playing a role.
>>
>>133820039
It was k.

>>133836863

>Okay, go ahead and tell us what tangible role the orbs themselves played in the events before the ending.

I always thought of the orbs in a kind of scientific way, rather than them being peoples wishes. The way I see it they're just something produced when the two worlds come into contact, like a fire producing smoke. The ending caused a massive reality change (world conract) leaving millions of them behind like residue.

You go back to your normal life. Which those girls couldn't do because they were just some lazy tropes thrown together to do nothing but adore MC and give him shit to do.

not that easy man. When you have a deep love for someone it's gonna take time to accept that shit. I'm guessing you never been in love like that. Not saying that to insult you but that is a real phenomenon experienced by a good number of the human population.
