It almost seems like Nagisa is a foil. I mean, I'm sure she isn't, as I haven't played the game. But as of right now, it seems like Nagisa exists to portray life as it should go as someone with a very close family, a happy life, and small dreams/desires. Everyone else has something that's not perfect like Nagisa, such as delinquency, aggression, or simply just not being real.
I'm kind of excited to see her arc play out when it comes out.

Nagisa is not "perfect" either - she doesn't seem to be very good with people, and then there are her health issues. We already know it was bad enough for her to actually skip a whole year, and i don't believe we have seen last of them.

Nah, I think I get what they're talking about. Although so far Nagisa's is only a personality issue caused by her weak self, she really has things to be happy about. The rest may have some issues they still need to work out, while all she needs to be is more social, if she suddenly hasn't already (No thanks to Tomoya, who is one of those people with issues.)
So it's not really an idea of "perfection," but an idea of "issues," where she doesn't have much beyond being weak and having to skip a year of school. Yeah, it sounds wrong, but I hope you get the idea.

Its quite wierd but i really liked Nagisa at the start and to be fair she's been like pushed aside but everyone else they introduce like fuko etc.. but i fell thats why to me she will be a small part character as she will be pushed aside again when it comes to okazaki 's love.

Not sure if this is on-topic or off-topic, anyway, Happy Birthday to Nagisa-chan today. For her birthday is on Christmas Day, December 25th.

I personally think that Nagisa is a very refreshing character as she seems almost normal towards the rest of the cast and I think it's nice to have a neutral character like that. Although she hasn't been fleshed out much yet I'm looking forward to seeing her own arc.
Not to mention her and Tomoya are a cute couple ;]

Actually, you're the one who's correct.

http://www.interchannel.jp/game/clannad/character.html

Here it says her birthday is on Christmas Eve.

Yet the dialogue in the game makes it sound like her birthday falls on Christmas Day. Probably an overlook by KEY over this confusion. I guess it depends on which day do you define as the "gift-giving" day. Some give presents on the 24th, while others on the 25th.

So I do apologize for the belated birthday.

is there any reason why nagisa is such an understanding person? here she is with tomoya who likes to befreind various girls who may try/are trying to take tomoya for themselves. if this was anyother anime she'd already be quite jealous.

There's no reason to be kind and innocent, even if there are any, it would be genes and family upbringing lol

That's why we love Nagisa, she puts others before herself.

Well, I'm not really fond of Nagisa but this is my thought after watching 15 episodes of Clannad. She might have all the good attributes as an ideal girl, but she's soft, fragile and lacks understanding of the "real world". If you're too kind to others, they will only take advantage of it and will be all over your head before you even know. Harsh but true, which is why I could relate to Sunohara's outburst of anger. What C.A said is true; there's no reason to be kind but innocence is a person's nature and usually comes from one's family background, eg Nagisa. People like Nagisa can be hurt easily, that's where we need people like Okazaki to be in the picture. Okazaki is the reason Nagisa being who she is right now, strong. Mah, other than that.. I do like her character and portrayal of cuteness sometimes. Just my 2 cents.

Isn't that why they complete each other? Tomoya seems disillusioned with life while Nagisa remains naive and fragile.

And I really like her, because she is NOT jealous, which means, she trusts him, just because she feels she can.
Well, ok, he told her that lie about Sunohara, but that was so hilarious, that I can't imagine Nagisa really being mad or hurt about that, though she would be even more embaressed.
And Tomoya behaves towards Nagisa in a different way as he behaves towards the other girls, so I don't see any problem in him being friends with them.

Exactly what I've stated before, which is why Clannad is so interesting to watch because everybody revolves around Okazaki (the interactions, etc). Well, that statement isn't entirely accurate so let me rephrase. Okazaki is always at the center of events no matter who the girl hence the various arcs. He's the ladies' man. Damn, why can't my previous school life be like that.

That being said, Okazaki x Nagisa could make a good couple but in truth I'd prefer to to see Okazaki x Kotomi rabu rabu.

I don't... She probably would look better, but it would ruin her appeal, she couldn't be as moe she is now...

Nagisa just wouldn't be Nagisa anymore, one of the first things Tomoya notes about Nagisa from the game is her short hair fluttering in the wind, IIRC.

The girl in the other world looks like a pretty close approximation to Nagisa with long hair, don't you think?
