Think about it this way...if you follow the show instead, don't you spoil the game?

I haven't started the game yet (installed, no patch as of now), but just some food for thought.

It really depends how people enjoy either th game or anime actually.
That aside, the "problem" here is the fact the anime will be obviously faster than the game, and the later is pretty long (I played Misae's route only so far, but it is really big, despite i could read it is the shortest route in the game).

In such case, it would be actually better to finish the anime first, as you would probably still have things to discover in the game (skipped points etc). The reversed way works only as "enjoy to see the major plot points being animated, and how the script is adapted", as I believe everything in the anime is already in the game.

Another possibility is to actually play the "secondary character" paths first, though we still don't have a guarantee of how the anime will end (as it might turn into more than 1 season...)

doubt about 2nd season since kyo-ani will have more importent things to do (haruhi) so thats not likely
at least not in the near future
but what do you mean the misae's route
isnt that like saying sayuri's or akiko's route
i mean isnt she a side character
how can she have a route

All of the side characters have extensive backstories, there is enough text there to call each of them an "arc". Obviously, it's not a romantic relationship, but there is still a lot of character development.

Clannad is a huge game (mine is 2.7 GB), now you know why. The side character arcs probably take up a lot of unique CGs.

I think it really depends on how much time you want to devote to the visual novel. Clannad (TV) is going on a one month hiatus soon and will probably end around April 2008. Will you finish in 5 months? If there is no second season that is.

KyoAni might do a 2nd season of Clannad after Haruhi, which is already under contract and development.

And unlike Kanon, Clannad has routes for the side characters as well, so you do get to know pretty much everyone.

If you know how long CLANNAD game is, you probably will have second thoughts on that, anyway, we're at Eps. 12, and the only finished arc is Fuuko... I can see them fitting the Tomoya's school life with the girls in a 24 eps. but including the after story? I don't think so. The chance is, a 24 eps then a break, then the continuation which can fit in a 6 to 12 eps. But that's just my opinion. And yes, they have they're own stories which can possibly be an entire episode. Specially, I think the transition from school life to after story will look weird if they decide to do it 24eps.

Yeah it depends how many of the arcs Kyo-Ani are planning on doing, with the 24 epsiodes planned and only Fuuko's arc is finished and almost half way through, unless there gonna leave some peoples arcs out, such as Misae's, which i can see them doing.

I would love to see a second season and doing the other arcs that might be left out but to be honest i can't see it, but you never know.

Personally I think I'll wait for baka tsuki final release. Everyone over there has put so mcuh effort towards it, that I think it is only respectful to wait for what they consider is the final release.

Spoiler for Possible eps. count of the arcs:


Also, CLANNAD script story > AIR+KANON combined. I think the ratio is 5:4,

assuming we remove the side character's stories... the ratio will be 1:1 which is still big because we're talking about a script that equal's AIR+KANON combined.

Which reminds me... shouldn't this discussion be in the speculation thread?

I agree, i tested abit of the game with that translation patch and there's still alot thats not been translated in it, such as the Interludes between some days and the opening isn't done either. As well with the option screen and everything.

I'l just wait for Baka-Tsuki's release too, there's will be great when it's done.

I'm meeting them half-way and going to the wiki to correct any errors I spot along the way.

Hold on, isn't there a possibility that KyoAni will show both Haruhi and Clannad at the same time?

I guess many world prefer that they mantain their 1 show per season approach. Most companies that try to cover too much end up scattering their budget beyond what is convenient. Moreover, KyoAni's so-called animation prowess is partly because they endevour themselves to a single show per season.

Wait so, Baka-tsuki is only going to release a patch for CLANNAD non voice? Or are they still deciding whether they are going to or not?

You won't find a link to download CLANNAD here. Why don't you do the right thing, and actually buy a copy.
