It's the entire set that makes Clannad the masterpiece it is. Not that it was the wrong song, Dango Daikazoku is addictive and a cute melody, however, there were lots of emotional endings throughout the anime, but after that heartbreaking scene, they throw the usual ending theme. But, suddenly it's all gone. We had a hell of a time with friends, laughing for no reason. The quote at the beginning of the review is from the description of the blu-ray edition.
Protagonista è Tomoya Okazaki, uno studente dell'ultimo anno che, con il suo atteggiamento all'apparenza distaccato, viene considerato da tutti un pessimo elemento a causa della sua pigrizia e indolenza. It comes into the show's focus randomly with little apparent purpose. Most of the girls treat him with distain and none of them are interested in him in the slightest. Tomoya Okazaki è un ragazzo timido ed introverso a causa della morte dei suoi genitori. However, Tomoya finds he is noticing Nagisa more and more around school. The Clannad collection is undoubtedly a well known anime.
Sarà l'incontro con la piccola, dolce e fragile Nagisa Furukawa a cambiare totalmente la vita di Tomoya e, in una sorta di gioco degli opposti, tra i due si instaurerà un profondo rapporto d'amicizia. Even if you're not really into drama or romances, give it a try. All the aspects of it, including art, soundtrack, characters but specially story. This is not how it works with this series. It made me not care at all about what happened and I had zero emotional connection to anything since that part. Kyou's tsundere-ness, Fuuko's quirkiness, Nagisa's unending sweetness, etc. It's just that these things are extremely relative since each website of anime has it own community and, as well, some differences in the rankings.
As expected from a high budget company they have in their hands the most recent software. The main protagonist doesn't waste much time hooking up with about 12 different girls. And this little fragment from the first scene gives you already an idea of how the story will progress. Tomoya learns Nagisa has been held back a year due to a severe illness and that her dream is to revive the school's drama club. If anything, this aspect of Clannad makes me despair, because I can think of a lot of better anime series that deserve to have this sort of budget. Which is not to say that the series is obviously cynical - on the contrary, I think it exhibits a genuine warmth that lesser harem-type series lack.
What's more, the character designs, with their various hair colour extracted from almost all major parts of the visible spectrum, are exactly what you'd expect from the source material. However, I cannot guarantee that you will enjoy the show as much as someone who watched the 1st season before. It describes a feeling that originates from the sweetness of the female characters. Clannad is something I would recommend even to a friend who have never watched any kind of anime. That is not a good thing. He soon discovers the girl's name is Nagisa Furukawa and that she exclaims things she likes in order to motivate herself.
As Tomoya spends more time with the girls, he learns more about them and their problems. Squishy moe character designs may not be everyone's cup of tea Sanae looks barely older than Nagisa , but again, that comes with the territory. One day while walking to school, Tomoya passes a young girl muttering quietly to herself. All of them the female ones, anyway exhibit some degree of fanboy-pandering. Claiming he has nothing better to do, he decides to help her achieve this goal along with the help of four other girls. One day while walking to school, Tomoya passes a young girl muttering quietly to herself. It also feels out of place when placed against the cheesily cheerful parts, and what's more did not really come to any conclusion.
Eventually he concedes and befriends her. However, Tomoya finds he is noticing Nagisa more and more around school. Unfortunately, all the female characters sound like babies. Tomoya learns Nagisa has been held back a year due to a severe illness and that her dream is to revive the school's drama club. Yes, I've watched After Story. They included some really emotional piano pieces for the strong scenes but also relaxing songs for the happy moments. Nagisa, for example, has a strong personality but is easily turned down, she's caring but also very naive.
By the end of it, I picked up a new word to go with that feeling. I remember trying to catch up with the episodes on the weeks where I couldn't make it to the society showings, and I literally had to split each episode into two or three chunks to be able to complete it - I just couldn't stomach watching more than a few minutes of it at a time. It expects us to care about these infantile, one-dimensional characters. As Tomoya spends more time with the girls, he learns more about them and their problems. The storyline is set in a way it's not necessary watch the first season to understand what is going on, the characters are introduced again and it's a different theme. I can't stand this kind of sweetness because it's artificial, arising from a cynical, calculated attempt on the makers part to portray the girls as cutely as possible. It's an extreme kind of sweetness, the kind you get from gorging yourself on the icing from a cake, the kind of sweetness that makes your tooth ache and your stomach churn.
If you dislike then drop the 2nd season, but complete this one! Sorry, it's not working for me. La serie è costituita da più fasi distinte, che vedono come tema centrale la presenza di un mondo di gioco online chiamato The World. I'm really glad that I watched this with my local anime society, because with my stubborness of finishing what I start, watching this whole thing through by myself probably would have killed me. And no wonder - with its sickeningly strong stench of moe, ludicrously contrived stories and array of cardboard template cut-outs masquerading as female characters, just what is there to like for someone who's not into moe or extremely sappy melodrama? Clannad è un'opera sentimentale con un'ambientazione scolastica. Claiming he has nothing better to do, he decides to help her achieve this goal along with the help of four other girls. I hope I was able to make a point, and at least convince some of you to watch it. Their childish and insecure natures especially early in the series make for unrealistic characters - and therefore compromise this show's unrelenting attempts at making us care about them.
Unfortunately for this show, this means that it ends up being utterly contrived, unrealistic, and outright stupid. It must seems incoherent but this is where things gets interesting. If an anime is acclaimed by the majority of the critic during years it must mean it's good. There's the Adorably-Childish Girl aka Green Haired Girl , the Shy Girl aka one half of the Purple Haired Twins , the Feisty Girl aka the other half of the Purple Haired Twins etc etc. We get no insight into his motivations at all. Even though, these arcs are all tight together and some 'themes' are continuously being developed, sometimes on the background but also taking the main stage at some episodes.
