Considering Key tradition, happy ends (IF there is one) take a huge toll on player's sanity and morale, much like what Skane said

And that's the problem, because it almost look like Key want to demolish the players to the point they can't reach the happy end

I disagree on this. The journey to the ending is important as well. Endings tend to be hollow if no importance is placed on the process that led to it. The usual exclamation in such cases being, "So what the f*** was the point of the previous chapters/episodes?"

KEY is particularly notorious for making their players jump screaming into the meat-grinder when it comes to their games. It's part of what makes them so adorable.

On a more positive side, what makes KEY likeable is that there is always a central theme in their games, and the game actually revolves around it (and not the humpa-humpa). The journey is always relevant, the ending poignant and meaningful, be it happy or sad.

In Clannad's case, it is about family, and that is why After Story is going to be the real meat of the story, with the School Arc being the introduction phase.

Cheers.

You're right.

And I like that meat grinder metaphor. Great imagery there.

TVアニメ本編とは全く別のストーリー「智代編」が制作され、「CLANNAD」DVDの第8巻(最終巻) に収録されることが決定しました!(1話分) 原作でも人気の高かった智代ルート。是非チェックしてみてください!!

The second Extra episode (episode 24) given in DVD8 will focus on Tomoyo (智代編 - Tomoyo-hen: Tomoyo's chapter/compilation).
According to the "description", since Tomoyo's route was quite popular, they produced a parallele story based on it.

I hardly believe they will squeeze her route within 1 episode, so they just might do a "a daily scheldule of a studen council president" or some unfold points of her past and presents (beating up, Takafumi, etc).
There goes Baseball .

But more Tomoyo is fine too . I'm guessing they're gonna put in the Clannad: Official Another Story chapter which features Tomoyo's past.

I'm wondering whether Clannad's town is based on a real location? For example, Air's village was inspired by Kami, Hyogo whilst Kanon's city includes locations found in Moriguchi, Osaka coupled with the atmosphere of Sapporo, Hokkaido.

Hmm...
Kanon = Large city in winter
Clannad = Suburban town in spring
Air = Village/small town in summer

Nice pattern

So, it's April 14th. In other words, happy Clannad day everyone! Time to celebrate the anniversary of the first meeting of Tomoya and Nagisa!

Thinking of it... Key makes their games to take place 1 year after they release. So, this is 2008, 3 years after Tomoya met Nagisa. Where in the story is that... *Me goes to think*

According to Wikipedia, the game is set in 2003... so it's been 5 years since they met...

Yes, it is definitely 2003.
If it was 2005, 14th april would be a thursday. Meanwhile, it would be wednesday for 2004.

Oh, guess it's one year before instead of one year ahead then.

In that case, that definately means this is one of the years where nothing of note occurred in the Clannadverse, other that another anniversary of meeting Nagisa. Two more years to go...

Slightly off-topic but, Little Busters! was actually set in 2007 and released in 2007.

oh cool, I just watched some parts of Clannad episode 5 (i don't know what led up to that) and Tomoya was thinking "Sanae-san looks really comfortable with the teacher role."

damn, like 20 week foreshadowing and I still didn't notice.

I was fortunate enough to have attended yesterday's CLANNAD ep.24 screening at the KFC Hall (no relation to everyone's favorite colonel). 400 selected CLANNAD fans flocked to the event, and interestingly enough, approximately a quarter of the audience was female.

Spoiler for ep.24 details:

You're welcome.

Unfortunately, I have neither played "Tomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful Life~" nor listened to the Drama CD, so I'm not qualified to answer your questions, however...

Thanks for the answer.

It sounds like their relationship is not shown as intimate as in the game, which is okay (As long as the relationship was portrayed) It's disappointing about the other scene not shown, but I can understand because of they only have 25 minutes...

Spoiler for what I was referring to:
