That is where the brilliance of the series truly lies. The story, the drama, the character development... rather than setting up the story for a conclusion, they set up a desired conclusion in your mind. Then deliver it.
This is a show that will feel uncomfortable. It is a show that you will hate until the very end, when you suddenly love it. read more

The writing is such that as the story progresses, you will progress along with it. You will feel emotion along with the characters, which can be quite immersive. Expect to laugh and develop fond memories during this anime as if the characters were your own circle of friends. Also expect to cry, possibly harder than you have cried in years. If there is one thing that Clannad is exceptional at, it's making people cry.
In summation, the artwork is fantastic, there is a character for everyone, and it really is a work worthy of highest regard. The the powerful empathy invoked by the brilliantly tailored story will forge a psychological pairing with the music that will last you a lifetime. "Dango Daikazoku" and "Onaji Takami E" are two of many pieces from the anime that still bring tears to my eyes. Watching this anime feels like more than watching a show, it feels like a window into your own inner feelings, and in many ways feels like going home. read more
