People think it's a spin-off. Opinions?
I hope Kotomi gets more focus.
she was my personal favourite girl.
i hope kyou will be the next heroine , she was the best girl !
Tomoyo is my waifu but I'm pretty sure that Nagisa and Kyou are more popular than her. Besides, Tomoyo already had her spin-off.

How excited would you be?

This is not Haruhishit
sorry anon, that doesn't even make any fuckin sense
I'd actually be pretty interested to see Clannad shit animated with the modern KyoAni style, instead of sticking to KEY's moeblob madness.
Tomoyo After will never work because
(a) it's mainly SEX. No Key anime with mainstream companies will ever be 18+ (the all ages version of it is pathetic);
(b) there isn't enough material for neither a 1 cour or 6-ep OVA. They could stuff Kappei route together to make it fit but it's a different staff and a whole mess on its on.
(c) Maeda is fucking dying of heart problems somewhere, they can't adapt new Clannad stuff without him.
I don't even get all this hype about TA anyway. Did you fucking faggots even play the game?
It's awfully boring, the tease dialogue is all over the place, the pacing is a mess and you could see a DRAMA ending coming 2 hours before it happened.
At least 200h.
Also don't follow guides on your first playthrough, they're for pussies.
I also love her but if we're hyping anything, we should at least hype some adaptation of her school route instead of after story. The OVA barely covered it and it's one of the funniest and comfiest routes.
He was still under medical "observation" last time I read about it.
>implying it'll be S3
KyoAni still isn't gonna do it anyway.
>yfw it's a 3-min music video of the cast singing Two Shadows
This was announced a few days ago. He's credited with original concept and music
The VN does a better job with the story telling. Ending is handled pretty much the same, but a bit better in the VN. The anime is really more of a supplement to the VN in my opinion.
>we will never see patented Hyouka KyoAni fluffy hair technology used on Tomoyo
Kano's route was there to portray the unbridled rage of the woman who possessed her who had been forced to kill her infant child because it was thought to be cursed.
Air is all about motherhood and particularly the importance of the mother-daughter bond. We saw rage from Kanna once her mother was killed, but we didn't really see a mother's rage other than Kano's arc.
Freelance scenario writer who worked on several novels for Visual Art's, mostly under Saga Planets label. His works have usually typical feeling of Visual Art's works. Example of works which are entirely written or at least directed by him:
Right now essentially new lead writer of Key. He worked previously on Clannad, where he wrote Fujibayashi sisters', Kappei's and second half of Yukine's routes, then he worked on Angel Beats! where he wrote First Half of Yui's route and helped to expand common route. He also codistributed several things for Kud Wafter and Rewrite. Latest Harmonia is then practically mostly his work.
Whose real name is actually Keigo Kubota. He helped on scripts for several Nitroplus' works, but from things that he actually wrote, most of them are comedies with porn heavy stuff, where his main speciality were usually harem routes. Examples:
But he also helped on additional content for all age version of Kud Wafter, which is also only case where he was previously credited under pen name Hasama, which he uses here. What it means is question.
with story based on Maeda's outline.
So, what we can expect from this?
I know that, but it was executed poorly.
Route order for some reason seems to be really important to Kanon. Makoto and Mai's routes are really standalone, but Shiori, Nayuki, and Ayu's routes work really well together when played in that order.
I mean, the only thing that was executed poorly in Kano's arc (and I could say this about every arc of Air) was the actual romance between Yukito and her and the awkward as hell H scene.
Maeda never intended to pair Yukito up with girls, so when it actually happens it's fucking weird.
Kano's character development was also done poorly as well. A lot of things happened too quickly. I feel like it should've been paded out a bit more.
Doesn't excuse the fact that the route order is pretty strict and diverging against it would decrease its enjoyment.
It's strange that this is the case considering that Hisaya wrote standalone routes in One ~kagayaku Kisetsu e~ perfectly fine. Though, you could make the argument that he wasn't in charge of the main girl for that VN.
>So, what we can expect from this?
I really enjoyed Harmonia, so I'm okay with the "new Key" style, though I'd prefer if it wasn't a kinetic novel since it got quite boring mid-way through.
Maybe I'm biased because I'm a sucker for Hinoue characters. A shame she's retiring.
I like this scene beyond the obvious reasons because with the way the arms are drawn, it's a great illustration that Tomoya is no longer the child he was at the beginning.
Anime generally has a tough time to display aging in a more nuanced way than the timeskip makeover, but here it's done very well.
>Though, you could make the argument that he wasn't in charge of the main girl for that VN.
Almost. Point is that story of One was primarily planned by Maeda, while Kanon was primarily planned by Hisaya.
Nagisa is based.
Hopefully its about Marriage life.
It's probably a pachinko machine or something.
If it's an actual anime project though and its handled by Kyoani then that will be something to talk about.
I don't care if it's something done by something else though, they either get Kyoani on it or they resurrect Osamu Dezaki and get him to do something with it.
I have no problem with Kai. He is good and was with Key long enough to know what to do. Not mention that with Maeda based story concepts he can work amazingly. And keep his style of narrative.
More wild cards are however other two writers.
I'm very happy for Yuu Niijima. His Hatsuyuki Sakura (https://youtu.be/NfNjCyCYUzw) was very Key-like while also having very own specific and an extraordinary atmosphere. So he is great choice for new work.
On the other hand I absolutely have no idea what expect from Hasama, except bringing a lot of lewd and harem theme given by nature of his previous works. However I won't be surprised if he was there to wrote one filling route, as he did in past many times. It will probably depend whether this will be all age or 18+.
>Maybe I'm biased because I'm a sucker for Hinoue characters.
We have now Na-Ga, from which we know what expect and those two other artists:
Do you like them?
2017 will be the year where all the older series revived huh
But Clannad is old as fuck and no one gives a fuck about it anymore.
Will they animate the other routes? Unless it is KyoAni, people won't care much.
I guess Key tries to create its own Fate series out of Clannad.
Na-Ga did a wonderful work with Hinoue in the past before, especially with Clannad, so I'm looking forward to this as well.
Never heard about these two, but their art seems just right up Key's alley so I guess it will be fine.
Hell, he deserves it.
Ends with Misae winning his bowl.
Only girl in that entire cast without some mental disorder or the IQ of a potato.
She's also a cutie, did nothing wrong, and is caring and loving towards her big bro.
Not enough material.
Every Key girl has some level of autism.
This one also comes with a hot mother.
It's called a cute personality trait, anon.
Doesn't mean it's an anime, new project could mean anything. If Haruhi is anything to go by you're getting a pachinko game. At best it'll be an OVA prequel.
Sequel can't really work because the stories done. Taking another characters route from VN seems really cheap and detached from the original. I doubt it could be a next generation thing with Ushio in high school either as it diminishes the original characters.
It's a phone app. If you're lucky.
>It's called a cute personality trait, anon.
No fucking way
Bitches who refuse to wake up irritate the absolute shit out of me.
There's absolutely no excuse to set a zillion fucking alarms and wake up for fucking none of them
My gf is absolutely shit about this, and sometimes I want to break my foot off in her ass for her refusal to wake the fuck up
>not waking up girls with your dick
Fucking betas these days.
Kyou spin-off please. I need this.
Every fucking time.
Would be kinda weird since Nagisa dies at the end of Clannad, then After story is our boy Tomoya being trying to deal with that and finally reconciling with Ushio only to have her end up dying on him too, eventually losing his fucking mind and imaging that both are fine at the end. Shit was rough.
Threadly reminder that there are people on /a/ right now who have not read nor watched Clannad because they think it's "because it's moeshit", "because it has hideous chara designs", "because I know the twist" or some other retarded reason.
I'd rather they just hire Hinoue one last time to re-draw the art for their first three titles.
>eventually losing his fucking mind and imaging that both are fine at the end
Not in his head. It's what the wish orbs and tree were all about. The town literally changed history. Kotomi's parents were also experimenting with other dimensions that was connected to it too.
Fuko is basically the key to it actually happening in the last episode.
I can't really understand how Tomoyo gets so much love. She always seem too quiet and a bit boring even with her backstory. Kyou on the otherhand is practically a bro for life, she's KEYbro tier.
Oh Kanata, I know not everyone cares for you but I still love you scars and all.
>I can't really understand how Tomoyo gets so much love.
I hate her personality too, but her route is the highlight of the VN until After Story. Needless to say they completely butchered that in the anime, although they couldn't have done anything better. Except with omnibus format but that's garbage.
Yeah, that's what happens when you try to imitate your old style with just the coloring.
The hair looked pretty nice, though.
The preorder bonus I have has a new illustration in the old art style, and it looks perfect. I wonder why she messed up when doing the new CGs. The new backgrounds look amazing though, even the brand new ones made for the Vita port, not sure if Hinoue was in charge of backgrounds though.
If it means more based Mai Nakahara then I'm all for a new Clannad anime
>The preorder bonus I have has a new illustration in the old art style, and it looks perfect.
I'm too lazy to actually take a picture of it. So I just found it online. It's a mousepad. I don't actually use it because I don't want to mess it up.
Also if you want Air merch, go on Amiami, Air tshirts are on preorder right now. It's the third run since the release of the PSvita version.
Ah, that image has been around for a while. It's just kinda rarely seen.
