Kanon - Speculation & Theories (for first time viewers)

This thread is aimed at first time viewers of Kanon and its purpose is to allow spoiler free speculation and theories to be aired. Having them in a central location may help focus the discussion instead of spreading speculation over the various episode discussion threads. If you are knowledgeable of either the original series and/or the game, then please do not post in this thread (use the Kanon - Spoilers & Speculation thread) and do not give away any spoilers!

Acceptable post topics
Personal theories, speculation, guesses and such. No spoiler tags required.
Posting magazine previews (such as from Animage). Spoiler tags required.

Unacceptable post topics
Any form of spoiler from the 2002 Kanon series.
Any form of Game related speculation or spoiler.

Please make sure you use spoiler tags when making posts concerning the second topic above! Also provide where the source of such speculation come from if at all possible (i.e. "Animeage") and identify any spoiler tags with the use of the subject title (see the paragraph below how to do this). Untagged spoilers are risking a ban for the poster as will any unacceptable speculation or facts from the game or 2002 Kanon series. Please use the Report button if you see any unmarked spoilers.

If you don't know how to use a spoiler tag, please read the BB Code FAQ.

Spoiler tag examples
[spoiler] Text to be hidden [/spoiler] becomes
Spoiler:

[spoiler=subject title] Text to be hidden [/spoiler] becomes
Spoiler for subject title:

Finally, please remain on-topic and do not use this thread if it's just discussion about the current or previous episodes. If you want to speculate or theorize over jam, be it Akiko's or otherwise, please post in the What the heck is in Akiko's jam!? thread

My guess is that Ayu was a shinigami who came to claim Yuuichi, saw the Taiyaki stand and couldn't take it; cried because she was so hungry. Later, when the boy she was supposed to take bought her Tayaki, she became indebted to him. Oh, she lost her deathnote.

~~~

Okay sorry, xris, serious now. Lets see.. sad girls in snow.

Spoiler for Total speculations, but just in case:


You probably already realise that the above is all just crap really.

So, is this a 1st timers thread (speculate only) or the old-timers thread (spoil away)? Totally confused now.

The speculation thread got shut down, and I feel like I'm going to explode if I don't get this off my chest:

That's a good point. Maybe they know. And I'm guessing it wasnt pleasant at all. And I think it definitely has everything to do with the "umei" part at the beginning of each episode. We know someone gets hurt. Maybe he hurt Nayuki in a bad way, and the community wasn't too happy; so its only by Nayuki's grace that he can return.

(please move these to the Speculations thread)

Speaking as one who has watched the earlier series I have a theory
but I've never actually seen it explained, confirmed or refuted so I'm
going to chime in on my own personal thinking about her commentary:

It's not really a spoiler since it doesn't really have any bearing or
outcome on how the story turns out, it's just interesting.

Spoiler:


Okay, possibly a lousy theory but it came to mind.

It is safe to say that there SHALL be NO mecha in Kanon. Unless people start piping crack to KyoAni's studio.

Cheers.

I was thinking of saying that myself, but then realised that it could be considered a spoiler. Anyways, I have to say, I like hearing what the new guys have to say about the show. My previous experience with spoils me.

With that, I'm out. Have fun!

Yeah, Ayu is sprouting wings in the op, that could be hinting at something... :P A spoiler crafted by the anime director? Not that I care. Uguu~ ;_;

And about Makoto...
Spoiler for possible spoiler based on an image macro I saw on 4chan:

But if it was demons responsible, why hate Yuuichi? About the School-Grudge theory, I was thinking that too, but what does Yuuichi have to do with the school and razing of barley field? Unless, she just says she hates him for the sake of saying it, tho I doubt it.

I'm sure Ayu's an angel, look at the ED's last line: "A small angel will descend."
