Clannad - Q & A
 
This thread is for those of you with questions about the Clannad anime, game or manga. There are many questions that don't need a whole thread to discuss them. A simple practical answer straight from the anime or manga without any speculation can solve these connundrums. If someone has such a question about Clannad which can be solved by answering with facts from an official source, then please ask that question here.

Please don't post in this thread unless you are asking a question or answering one. Please remember that it only takes 1 person to answer a question. And don't speculate! You can only reply with cold, hard, merciliessly unforgivable facts. If you have to speculate, then please just tell the querrant that no answer is known, but here are some facts that might help him make up his own mind.



Make sure you use spoiler tags if your question is about the anime, manga, or any non-anime source. Untagged spoilers are risking a ban. There are two ways to create clearly marked spoiler tags, as shown in the following:

The easy way: By simply clicking on this http://forums.animesuki.com/images/a...al/spoiler.gif icon which can be found in the Quick Reply or Reply to Thread template. This is how I create spoiler tags.

Cheers for the Clannad section's opening!
I've always adored Key's works, and was quite annoyed by how it always get destroyed by Toei...and the movie out there is a pain to even start watching. (I only saw the promo and I know it's no good)
Back on topic:
I've been playing the translated version of the game, and its in Chinese. Unfortunately, the Kotomi route is not yet translated so if anyone can give me a insight of what happened there?

Can someone break down what the heck this is about? People are foaming at the mouth for this anime so they must know something about it already (based on a game i think?). I read the ann description but its kinda confusing.

If you want to be heavily spoiled, read this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Clannad_characters

If you want it short, read the plot section of this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clannad_%28visual_novel%29

There's just too much in Clannad to fit it in one page, so you'll have to be a bit more specific on what you want to know.

DazarGaidin 2007-09-27 19:49

Ok thanks, i tried the second link and it helped a lot...kinda expounded on the ann description to where it made more sense. :) *avoids chance of spoilers in 1st link*

Just some general info
 
Really looking forward to this show. Really love KyoAni's work, and they did a great job with both Kanon and Air.

I have a few questions, most of which are pretty basic. I'm not much for asking about story/character stuff cause I like to be surprised.
  1. What channel is it going to be running on?
  2. What time is it going to be showing?
  3. How many episodes is it expected to run?
  4. Which fansub groups are currently planning to translate it?

boggart 2007-09-27 22:58

To answer question 1 and 2:
  • TBS will be airing the premiere on 5th October at 2:25am (2:01am for 2nd ep, and subsequent eps will be at 1:55am).
  • Broadcast on MBS will begin on the 14th of October at 1:55am.
  • Broadcast on CBC will begin on the 18th of October at 3:20am (2nd and subsequent eps at 2:50am).
  • Broadcast on BS-i will begin on the 26th of October at 1am.

3. Currently the number of episodes is unknown.

4. According to (the sketchy) AndrewLB Fansub Wiki, the following groups have shown an intent to sub Clannad:
  • a.f.k., Eclipse, Fallingsnow, Sprocket Hole Subs, idPRO

I'm still playing as well I would have to say though Komoti's story I found better than Kyou's and for the most part Tomoyo's

iamandragon 2007-09-28 18:22

Tomoyo is very popular, but it's a bit long.
Kotomi's story is very well edited. The briefcase scene, especially.
Oh...if I remember KEY had this recommended playthrough order which allows us to get the most story and scenes out of CLANNAD:

Is Clannad another "crying game"?

Short answer: Yes.

If you want a long answer...
Unlike Kanon, Clannad has a lighter touch to it. It does not focus too much on boy-girl love(although in some character's route it does), but more on the 'family love' and the sweetness of friendship, which is clearly seen in the Nagisa route and After Story. Also Clannad has a very clean cut in touching moments. They make you cry slightly, but not like Air and Kanon where you'd cry to exhaustion. Also the humors in Clannad is pretty good. I have a count of spitting tea on my monitor for at least four times due to laughter.
Touching moments does not necessary occur between the main character and the girls. You(the main character) actually got the most touching non-boy-girl moments. Listen to the BGM 'to the same heights' to get a better idea of it.

So, what exactly is the "dango" they're talking about in Dango Kanzoku? I'm still somewhat at a loss as to what these amoeba-like things are. :D

Now that just made it even creepier for me... :heh:

Sorry about that. I thought the "dango" was something specifically affiliated with CLANNAD, instead of a general term...

Nightengale 2007-09-30 00:38

Well, a family of dumplings... I suppose from Nagisa's POV is quite... her in a lot of ways.

Can anyone lead me to a tutorial on how to transfer the voices from the PS2 version to the PC version?

Preferably English if possible, though if it's not too long and complicated, Japanese is fine.

The song is more or less Nagisa's theme. It basically hints at the core elements of the story.

Not in English, but this is the most clear guide:
