This may seem completly random but when is Clannad set?

I know it seems like an odd question but I cant honnestly remember a time where anyone uses a mobile phone or a computer, heck as far as I recall you dont even see them in the background.



Sorry theres no way I can phrase this without a spoiler about Kotomi's story:

Spoiler for Kotomi's arch season 1:

The series school life period seems to be set in the area around 2002-2004 or so.

I didn't really start seeing heavy cellphone usage until around 2005 and even then not extremely heavy until 2006 with texting and more computer access via cellphones.

As for computers? Well I don't know about general home use of PCs in Japan. Azumanga Daioh was set in 2001-2003 and general knowledge of computers and the internet seems to be fairly new, at least for schools, where in the United States it was becoming more common by 1999 for internet connections (DSL/cable becoming more common by 2002) and PCs in homes back in the mid-1980s (Apple II series being the most common at the time I suppose) and IBM DOS/Windows based systems in the early-mid-1990s.

As has been mentioned before, Key likes to set their games in the year they were released. That would be 2003 for Clannad. It should be the same for the anime. If that's the case, the last part of After Story (Ushio aged 5) takes place in 2011.

Clannad was released on April 28, 2004.

After Story was part of the Clannad game, unless you meant when After Story took place.

I'd say 2005 (and onwards) at the latest, if we go by the theory that KEY would like to have their games set in the year they are released.

But people still had mobile phones and computers have been part of the office and the home for a long time, dont get me wrong I really dont think having mobile phones would of added to the story, in fact in some scenes they would of damaged it but its a common device to make a program feel more real when you add things we are using today in the real world to it.

Having said that it can also have the negative effect of dating the program.

Aha! In the game, Yoshino uses a cell phone during After Story on May 13th.

Well there we go then, it seems that at least cell phones existed in Clannad XD

I seem to remember Tomoya having no clue how one worked, either.

...I think the lack of modern technology might just be Tomoya's lack of interest...

Epic revival. Could've been 1 year. :P

Gave my DVD of Clannad to my English tutor (lol)

She liked the first episodes, saying that "normally she wouldn't touch that kind of thing, but this widened her horizons". Win.
