Clannad after story is an anime series that continues the story of Tomoya Okazaki and Nagisa Furukawa, who have graduated from high school and started their life together. The anime depicts their joys and sorrows, their challenges and achievements, and their love and loss. It is a series that will make you laugh, cry, and feel deeply for the characters and their struggles.
