Since Kanon 2006 is LICENSED (and has been fully released too!), ADV/Funimation is the answer to your first question. The second question is off topic for this thread.

Just finished the serie, and feeling like passing by and giving my opinion.

Well, it was a very good and very emotionnal serie. Many really heartbreaking moments, many funny ones, but also definitely some drawbacks.
Guess it'll be spoilerish, 'cause you can't really talk about what happened without spoiling it ^^

I'm still crying and sobbing each time I remember one of her touching moment.
And I'm a guy. Yeah, shameful, but I don't care

I liked Makoto's arc best as well, followed closely by Ayu's (I did like her arc )

I must say, this was one of the most- if not the most amazing anime I've ever watched.

When I did my research for Kanon Minasesanchi on Akiko's house, I came across this drawing, which seems similar to what you've concluded. It includes the washitsu (Japanese-style room) behind the dining table. I believe you can see this room in the flashbacks during Kanon 2006 when young Yuuichi was lying on the porch.

Main thing was I was comparing it to the original art backgrounds in the Kanon game for our animation and it also seems to match exactly. It seems Kyoani did a good job of studying the original backgrounds too.



You can see the drawing says 'washitsu'... and less clearly, 'engawa' at the back of the house. (outside traditional wooden porch... is sorta the translation.) It also marks off Akiko's room where you guessed it is.... Also, the floor layout matches what the house sorta looks like when viewed from outside in Kanon 2006... so...

I think this pic is from an official source... but I can't be sure... anyone?

I just noticed something from watching AIR.

Episode 2, when Yukito was delivering Kano her bento, he asked three female students from her school; those students were extremely identical to Ayu, Nayuki, and Makoto. Same details and evertyhing, hair, eyes color, bow/hairband, and even Ayu's backpack(beside her and Makato being tall). lol.

This is the first time I've noticed this, even though this is my fourth time watching AIR. Granted, the first three was before I watched Kanon. I've just found it surprising since AIR was made before Kanon but KyotoAni seemed like they were already getting ready to make Kanon after they finish with AIR.

^^ Isn't that what TV Tropes call expy?

Looks like it's confirmed as well:

Quote:
Ayu has appeared in many works outside of Kanon, as well as being cited as being extremely popular and recognized in both Japan and the west. Ayu especially "has had more appearances outside of the original Kanon than any other anime or H-game character ever."[17] Ayu has appeared in countless dōjin games such as Glove on Fight and Eternal Fighter Zero.[4] In the anime adaptation of Air, another of Key's visual novels, Ayu makes a cameo appearance in episode two along with Nayuki Minase and Makoto Sawatari as regular girls who talk with Yukito Kunisaki briefly.

Not an expy, no. An expy is, IIRC, a character that is a copycat, or a home-made, version of another one.

In this case, it's rather a cameo or an easter egg, not a remake.

No one talking about the Blue Ray release?
Release date: Dec 16. 5.1 audio and English subtitles, one hopes they licensed ADV's translation, it'd be better than the engrish we've seen in some native English subs.
Also hope they have a full-length animated OP like Air did.

I complained earlier that I found KANON repetitive and sexist and creepy. A couple days ago, a friend told me about playing the visual novel, and that's when I realized where my problems with the series came from. In the game, all the girls' arcs are *separate*. Yuichi only experiences *one* of the storylines in the game, and which one is up to the player. In the anime, Yuichi experiences four of the arcs and bits and pieces of Nayuki's, and that's why the story seems so repetitive in hitting the same beats (troubled girl longs for Yuichi, then vanishes from the series once her arc is over). It isn't sexist to do it once, but doing it four times in a row gives that impression. Also, the game's arcs are meant to be separate as opposed to sequential. Mai, Amano, Shiori and others vanish once the visual novel's plot for them is used up, except the game gets to end there while the anime has to go on without them.

This probably shows how KANON was meant as a game with five separate routes, not an anime with five overlapping plots. That's why the show is so fragmented, why its characters fade in and out, why the emotional beats are repetitive and why the ending is arbitrary and confusing.

Also, I think when they cast a popular actor as Yuichi, they had to design the character to fit the voice. But that meant Yuichi looks too old for the childlike girls in this series. Probably not intentional, but still rather creepy. I thought KANON was a clumsy piece of work, but I guess part of it is that it was never meant to work as an anime series. It was a game and the material didn't always benefit from the adaptation.
