See here: http://www.tbs.co.jp/clannad/

This time slot would seem reasonable if Clannad were...
(1) Some adult film,
(2) Some extra-low budget, low-quality production,
(3) A re-run.
But as it's none of these, why??
This is quite typical of anime that is neither aimed at children nor "mainstream". For various reasons, kids shows aside, most anime airs at such hours (although more objectionable material does tend to get pushed back even further into the early-morning hours).

Edit: Klashikari beat me to it. That'll teach me to space out in the middle of composing a post!

And I'm sure almost all of us here download the episodes anyway, so time shouldn't matter too much.

Can someone explain more in depth about the timeslots and the contents of them?

It's quite similar to the US. Everything that can be marketed towards kids is aired in the morning or evening, and all the stuff for adults are aired closer to midnight or later.

It's like Adult Swim if you've been to the US. While Naruto (cut version) can air in daytime hours when kids are watching TV, these shows need to wait for hours like 12-5 am when kids are sleeping and cannot see the blood/gore/violence/language present in these shows like Trigun which are less heavily cut.

For example, Code Geass features has some heavy fanservice shots and blood/gore shots. Originally, that wasn't possible with a slot in the day. But after they moved the show to midnight, they included the more "adult" material.

Only otaku with recorders watch these shows anyway, so the time slot is really irrelevant.

Thanks!

Thanks for explaining, everyone!!

Hahaha, I guess it just never registered on my mind that this show would be geared towards otaku.

Perhaps it's because (surprisingly?) I was introduced to the whole Kanon-Air-Clannad series by my female friends, one of whom was a fansub translator for Air. Come to think of it, those girls even enjoyed Shuffle!, which I absolutely hated

I guess anime viewer stereotypes (i.e. what sort of shows are for what sort of people) aren't as established outside Japan, so we have more freedom to watch whatever anime series we wish! A good thing

Wikipedia quotes the scenario writer as saying that Clannad "means family or clan in Irish". I don't know how accurate that is.

Clannad is named that way because it carries the theme of family, just like how Kanon uses the theme of memories and the past repeating, like the musical form "canon".

No prob. Yes, "kazoku" means family. Dango Daikazoku is representation of the theme. It is roughly translated as "big dango family", "big" not meaning the dango themselves are big, but they are a large family.

Well who doesn't? xD

But you want to know if their parents appear in the game, right? Well, as far as I know, there aren't any dialogues nor references attributed to them.

My turn to ask:
Does anyone have a plot synopsis or summary of the CLANNAD film?

Someone should keep a tally of how many times this questions is asked and announce when this series ends.

.......! I really bursted out laughing when I saw this. I know that's not what Shana meant, but I really want to to a Tsukoimi:

The Fujibayashi sisters are born from a stone!

I read that the episodes 13+ are delayed.

Is there something going on over in Japan?

Yeah, some weird holidays celebrating the birth of Christ and the change of the year or something.
