I loved Clannad too!
I just accidentally downloaded it once. After a few days, I decided to watch it. By the time Okazaki came to Nagisa's house, I was hooked. It's one of the best series I have even seen <333

Totally second that. I have watched it numerous times too. I love it when Akio and Okazaki fight in s1

My favorite ep is episode 4 of ~After Story~. The one where... *spoiler
Spoiler for Oops... Almost said too much:
How do I explain it... It's just... *sniff* I think that was the first episode I cried besides the one with the gang fight.
I can't explain it so well, Its just good.

I'm not ashamed to say that I'm a nearly 35 year old man who looks like a biker and I still cry during the After Story arc. Episode 18 is what really gets me. I cry like 3 times during that one. I'd like to think that I would handle the situation better than Okazaki does (God forbid something would happen to my fiance) but I can still empathize with him and I break down when he finally figures out how badly he's messed things up with his father and Ushio and resolves to fix it. The whole series reminds me how important family is and how we need to protect our relationship with them.

1) No it isn't free, it's a commercial product.
2) Yes it is English translated. You'll have to find the translation yourself though, it took me a while to get it.

Well, I just watched the whole thing, apart from the other side episodes, which I aint pushed on.

But.... wow.

I've always had this bizarre fixation with anime and this is the first one I could turn to my wife and say "let's watch this together."

No upskirts, no hidious fanservice.

Sure, everyone seems to fancy the main character, but it's not laid on as heavily as it is in other series.

The main character's other male freind is a lech, but he's also a well meaning, humerous idiot with slightly more depth than a car park puddle. He doesn't just show up to perv on everyone, he's part of the story.

It's FUNNY. Persistantly funny. I like funny.

Nagisa... Through a wealth of appaling series where the romantic interest is there to flash her funny bits and realise what a great guy the main character is, here as an amazing character. She's so flippin' lovely. A bit silly. Kind and quirky and... full? When she died, I almost cried. When Ushio died, I... almost screamed.

No kissing, no groping, no heads getting stuck in the wrong place. I laughed so much when Akio finds out Nagisa's up the duff. But it showed how different the series is from most other stuff. We don't even see a kiss. I like that.

I had to watch it all the way through, especially after Nagisa died. That bit tore me apart. And then... Just when...

How could it end like that? Not Ushio. Not little Ushio. How can you destroy a man so totally...

We're back to the first meeting. Will he let her go by? Will he end this?

I'm not sure how loud I was when I shouted at my laptop.

Fight Tomoya.

FIGHT!!!!

And then good things happened.

Because that made it alright.

Not 100% perfect. But damn close to it.

Can't agree anymore than I already do It's pleasant reading the reactions from someone who has just finished watching this series, especially when it's my personal favorite. It's a shame that less and less people are watching this show. I feel like everyone should know about it but at the same time I'm glad this gem is somewhat quiet

I wonder how many members would be up for a re-watch sometime in the future I don't think very many people would join in but I wouldn't mind trying.

I would certainly be up for it. It's been a long time since I last watched Clannad.

I wouldn't mind waiting till May to re-watch considering I'm at the busy time of the year

So far, that makes 4 of us Hopefully we can gather a nice group of people and create a thread for it

It's not just wonderful, it's different. If all anime was like this the whole genre wouldn't be looked at... well the way it's currently looked at.

Characters with slightly more depth than a car-park puddle.

A male lead with a regular level of testoserone.

Humour based on something other than walking in on female characters while they're changing.

And that love story.

Oh my.

I'd love to do a rewatch but I'm stuck in Ireland for the forseeable future...

But yeah I'd rewatch it.

I just finished this series. A little long with side stories of characters that I really would not have minded not being there but it's all little brush strokes in a very large picture..

Overall CLANNAD is up there with the very best series I've ever watched. Loved it. The progression of the story arc to the child Ushio arc sets it apart from everything else.
