why did clannad end up so much more popular than air or kanon?
Air is what you call DEEP, it is flooded with imagery and representations. You have to pay attention to it to make sense of it all.
As for Kanon, you should give it a try (both of them).
>Clannad took what the others did and expanded on them. More characters, more routes, same type of story.
I laugh cried and enjoyed all three of them. But like anon said, Clannad just learned from the mistakes of the previous two.
Because best girl won on Clannad.
I got to get around to Little Busters
I was pretty into the genre back in the day but couldn't watch clannad past 4 or so episodes for some reason and haveve asked myself the same ever since. all I can remember is a retard with a wood starfish
I feel like Kanon had more subdued characters, in comparison to Clannad, but I was more satisfied with the eventual winner. Also, Clannad dug too deep into trauma drama, and made me lose my appetite for it. Ironically, I just finished watching the magical fox Alzheimer's arc just yesterday.
Seriously, though, Nagisa is so bland, it's unbearable, and watching Okazaki just ignore the feelings of every other girl that he had been trying so hard to help before...
It just left a bad taste in my mouth.
>crying for the
ending and not this scene
