Just like Toei Animation's AIR movie, the CLANNAD movie is an adaptation from Key's game. Both movies have something about them that stands apart from the TV series adaptations by Kyoto Animation, making them very special. If you've already seen the AIR movie then you should know what i'm on about --- experience that again with the CLANNAD movie.
Both protagonists are Kūdere and both female heroines warms up to them despite their personality. The cool, empty yet fulfilling atmosphere are the same in both anime. both anime are almost identical to each other in every way.
Both the Air Movie and Clannad Movie have a very similar way of telling their adaption of the love-story, and present their drama in the same way. The colors, character design and animation are also strikingly similar in both cases. If for some reason you enjoyed one of these movies more than the original series, you'll definitely enjoy the other movie as well.
The characters in each series have similar outlooks on life, whether it's Tohru and Misuzu's opptimism, or Kyo and Yukito's pessimism, or Shigure and Haruko's general irresponsibility as a guardian. Both have themes of life, love, friendship, hurt, comfort, but most of all what it means to be part of a family.
And as an extra, the English dubs also share a couple of the voice actors.
- Heavy emotional involvement
- Involve watching someone slip away right before your eyes
- Touching character interactions
- Good character development (which Kowarekake no Orgel amazingly manages to do in 30 minutes)
- Tugs on your heart strings
- Great music, including some tracks with powerful vocals
In reality, Kowarekake no Orgel is good if you're a fan of ANY of Key's works, but it's most similar to Air in terms of plot.
It's pretty similar.There is also a girl who wants to reach the sky and when i look at Yumemi from Munto I get the feeling that she's a clone of Misuzu .
The stories are both complex and a little hard to understand and there is also a character ready to sacrifice himself for the sake of others.
