Honestly, when I saw it, there was really only one thing I got from:

LENS FLARE. Plus I like how Kyou and Tomoyo randomly show up to meet them later, even though there is no suggestion whatsoever that they are friends. And Ryou doesn't exist. I understand she's not that important and nobody really cared about the poor girl in the anime, but still!

That sounds real legal... (Assuming you mean that you found a box with all of the above in it, which I suspect doesn't legally exist. I'm guessing it's also region 0...)

I had seen movie moments ago and somehow it was lacking

Basicly it was a short re-tail of 2 seasons with slight modifications.

Ryou being completly ignored was sad, Kotomi also by some reason happened to be conductor 0_o

Was nice to see Sunohara/Tomoyo/Tomoya communicate with each other though... but somehow movie was lacking for me.

7/10...

No, seriously, I did.

It was in Malaysia...

So I got English, Chinese and Malay subs for it. ^^

Malaysia is known to be the bootleg capital when it comes to DVDs. The sticker of Malaysian Classification Board on the DVD cases is also fake while the DVD itself and contents (english subtitles in particular) are very dodgy. Many bootleggers use the stickers to claim it's authentic but in reality it isn't since they get the stickers from some dodgy source and just slap it on the DVD cases, it's happened with hundreds of animes and I'm sure movies from the west and such too.

There's a link a below on a guide to spot bootleg DVDs since your previous post described how messed up your "boxed" version of the Clannad series and movies were (which I assume you didn't want to get - you're not a supporter of bootleggers are you?)

Pretty sad you had to use a item description on an online shop to refute that as to one that's actually on the DVD, besides there isn't even any subs on the DVD :P, anyway my point is if you're gonna buy anime DVDs at least buy it from official companies or licensors than from dodgy asian bootlegs. Fair enough if it's your first time as you may be unaware but try to actually support the people who make and produce the anime than support bootleggers who just steal from them and make their own profits.

That David Mataranga guy or whatever his name is needs to do a better job this time around, or hire someone else. He was a bad voice actor from the beginning of the series right up to the end. And Greg Ayares as Sunohora....ugh.

Clannad was just not meant to be dubbed. Or if it was...not by these guys.

I once again reiterate that Nagisa can only ever sound like Nakahara Mai.

QFT

No offense to the american VA but Mai Nakahara is just better in so many ways. I was also impressed by Mai's improvement after voicing Nagisa in the the movie. In the movie, Nagisa's voice felt as bland as her character but Nagisa from the TV series had a subtle growth in not just her character, but her voice as well.

Nagisa's character in the movie wasn't bland at all. She made a profound impact on everyone she met and basically carried the entire movie. Her drive and determination were both infectious and adorable, which compelled everyone around her to help her achieve her goals, and compelled me to keep watching (lol).

I'd watch the movie again just as a reminder of how awesome she is. A series rewatch would be a lot harder for me to stomach.

Ironically enough, this is exactly what I think about Nagisa in the TV series and not the movie. Although the impact in the TV series was more of a combination between Tomoya and Nagisa. Like I've said before, the movie isn't necessarily bad but rather intrinsically different from it's TV counterpart. Some will enjoy the movie while others won't (such as myself,) but naturally the movie had to take some liberties considering how much content had to be condensed into an hour and a half.

Character-wise, the movie had it's own differences but Mai Nakahara didn't help any with her sub-par acting (in which I believe she improved on quite a bit in the TV series.) I can agree with Nagisa (I.e. - TV Series) being bland up to the end of the first season but the second season had such amazing subtle development. It might not have been substantial but it was certainly an impressive growth in character.

Aside from just the characters though, there were plenty of other areas where I felt the TV series did a much better job. Music and music placement is one that comes to mind right away and the comedy as well. Even so I have to admit the movie did do it's best with pacing.

It's funny that you mention this. Actually Nagisa isn't all that different in the movie than she is in the TV series. The real difference lies in how her development was spread out in the second season of the TV series (subtlety) in contrast with her development from the movie (direct.)

Nagisa carried the entire second season on her frail, small shoulders, ever after episode 16. The second statement is something you rarely see in any series.

Nope, sorry, that was Ushio. If AS didn't have Ushio, S1 would definitely be better.

I believe the only time Nagisa was not around in AS was about 1-2 episodes... Even after episode 16, she was mentioned from time to time to tell fans to remember Nagisa forever more. But Ushio is taking her place for the parts.

Episodes 17-21 of After Story were as much about Tomoya struggling with his regret about meeting Nagisa as anything. Ushio was merely a physical representation of his relationship with Nagisa. When Tomoya rejected Ushio and the Furukawa family it was his way of saying he wishes he never met Nagisa. He regretted all the pain he was going through due to his loss and pushed away everything that represented it.

His acceptance of Ushio was also his acceptance of everything he had gained during his time with Nagisa and his acceptance of his loss. He accepted Ushio and reconciled with his father both to avoid making the same mistakes his father made but also to allow Nagisa's legacy to live on. At the end of episode 18 we see Tomoya and Ushio facing Nagisa with Tomoya's voice over saying "Nagisa I found it. I finally found it. Something only I can protect. The precious thing only I can protect. It was right here." We see here that Tomoya's actions were influenced very much by Nagisa. It's his way of saying "I wasn't able to protect you, but I will continue to protect Ushio because that's what you would have wanted." Then in episode 22 Tomoya is rewarded for having the strength to accept his loss and not regretting meeting Nagisa on the hill by having her restored to him by Ushio through the light orbs.

My point is that, despite not being alive at the time, Nagisa was as important a character as Tomoya or Ushio or anyone else during those episodes of After Story.

True, Nagisa did have a profound impact on the series metaphysically, but the fact that they happened in the manifestation of Ushio and basically every situation surrounding her puts Ushio in the driving seat of the emotion for the second half of the series. I felt when Ushio cried and when she died. Nothing Nagisa did in the first half had a profound impact on me. I wasn't very happy when she died, though, I'll admit.
