It wasn't entirely bad, but it wasn't a great ending either. I was disappointed, I wanted Fuko to appear again in the story :( And I was also expecting for a kiss XD

Solid.

Ouch! I almost cried in the entrance of Old Man's part. Arghhh! This is the 2nd time! It beat the first record. I almost cried in Elfen Lied (the first anime I've ALMOST cried) then, no anime have ever made me to cry; even almost to cry, never! Then, this CLANNAD beat it!

Argh, no anime has ever made me like this. 2 animes, Elfen Lied and CLANNAD are the only two has taken me down so far. Hahahahah!

The depressed Nagisa bothered me but the rest of the episode was perfect.
The scene where everyone told Nagisa about how they felt about her dream was so moving T.T
I also felt that Tomoya's confession was a bit rushed, but I expected that.
Overall this was definitely worth watching. 9/10 ^_^

I personally thought this was amazing and it made me forget how disappointing the ending to True Tears was. Nagisa has always been my favorite girl and I'm glad Tomoya chose her in the end unlike in True Tears (poor Noe).

But yeah, these last couple episodes in the show were steller and Nagisa was really the glue that held this show together seeing as I thought the episodes without her were rather weak (not much of a Kyou or Tomoyo fan).

I also really enjoyed seeing the relationship develop over the course of the entire show and seeing it build up to the ultimate point of him asking her out as opposed to it happening early on and seeing them deal with it for the rest of the show. I thought the ending was perfect.

GARR NAGISA!! DON'T FUK WITH ME!! *says loads of things* THATS WHY YOU HAVE TO MAKE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE. (Something like This)
GARRRRRRRRRR.

Akio was awesome, though i laughed a bit from his sudden appearance.

Okay, i will consider it finished for now...
Ill watch 23 after the OVA gets out, or when go through Nagisa's route in the game...

It really way quite simple in the end.

I still don't understand the whole thing about the girl in the other world- where did nagisa remember that situation from?

Maybe ~AfterStory will answer all that questions.

At first I thought it'll be a bad ending. I'm glad it didn't happen like that.

that was a great ending, i love akio san and his ending speech was good, it felt as if he was acting the whole thing though with his excesive arm gestures but whatever, the last 3 minutes did feel like rushed through, and the begining with depressed nagisa was bothersome but it was still good the next episode looks light hearted comdedy so i;ll find out

cant feel sorry for that girl imo

...she was pretty much acting like a selfish girl when she broke down like that. Even from when she found the photo book she was acting selfish and not thinking of how much of a team effort it was. It was obvious that everyone was gonna yell at her (even i did). Btw, aren't solo plays called monologues? guess the subber didn't know the word maybe. The episode was still a tear jerker.

...still wonder if a kiss from Okazaki would've snapped her out of it (probably not and theres no kissing in Key anime -_-)

...wouldnt it be funny if they showed a skit of Sakagami putting on a contact the size of her fist >_<

I thought that this was awesome, no tears or anything but it was a really good ending to the series. KyoAni really seems to be good at the endings of Key adaptations, it was the only almost-redeeming quality of Air TV in my opinion. Hopefully Nagisa and Tomoya will actually get around to kissing in the last couple of "extra" episodes.

Tomoya is a very good character I liked him the best in this serie.

At the end scene I waited Tomoya hug Nagisa or kiss her but he didnt. That surprised me only. I like Nagisa cherrfull better too. They suit very good each other :) They complete each other from the very start. Nobody was around but Nagisa and Tomoya were there together.

Just saw this ep.... I'm not too surprised at the lack of kissing, considering how touchy dating is in Japanese culture.


I was impressed the most by the love that Nagisa and her parents share... well done straightforward resolution without any ridiculous twists at the end. :)

Heh! I guess this was the last episode!!
The next one should be the "last" in the canon of the plot, "23", and episode "24" should be Tomoyo's "After Story".
Then after that, it's followed by the "Clannad ~After Story~" anime.

But, I can't help to be diassapointed by alot of things from this anime, which I knew from the start that it was based after a Visual Novel by the same name, but which I never played before.
For example, I find it kind of sad that Tomoyo, Kotomi and Kyou got "dumped", I really liked them all, Tomoyo specially(I' am a sucker for cool, white-haired girls with blue eyes). I' am not saying Nagisa's not a great character, but I sorta liked more the others. I also knew that it would end with a Nagisa+Tomoya scenario since episode 1, and in the end I still think it was the best choice. ~Meh I guess all other "Romance" series are all the same, so I' am no really complaining that much.
The biggest dissapointment, though, would be that Fuko barely showed up after her arc was concluded. It left me with really infuriating questions, like: What the hell happened to her?! Did she got out of the hospital?! Will she ever meet again with Nagisa and Tomoya?!! -I hope that the "Clannad ~After Story~" anime reveals what happened to her(I haven't watched episode 23 today, but I' ll get to it tomorow, but I strongly doubt that she will show up in it anyway). I also hope that the "Clannad ~After Story~" anime explains the connection between Tomoya and that "Garbage Doll", and Nagisa's with that "Girl", from that "Fantasia World".
I should mention another thing, when I watched episode 1 of this anime, it got me extremely interested on it(I even rated it a 10 from just watching the first episode and added it to "My Favorite Anime" list), greatly due to that strange Girl from the "Illusionary World" and her Doll. I thought that the series would contain lots more of "Fantasy" and "Supernatural" themes, but alas, I was greatly mistaken.
I also thought that the show would had had more of those scenes, like: When Tomoyo kicks people around often, Kyou throwing those Dictionaries, etc.

Nonetheless, despite the number of dissapointments I had from these series, I still enjoyed it alot and I would still rate it a 10, and I thought that the ending was sastifactory, and would also highly reccomend it to people that like "Slice of Life", "Drama" and "Comedy" Genres and Themes.
The best things I found about this anime were: Cool and very interesting characters, very nice OSTs and music, great seiyūs and nice and smooth animations.

Predictable but a good ending. Nagisa arc turned out pretty well.

A very good anime, but it definitely pales in comparison to some of the other anime that aired in Fall last year. I'm just glad that I've caught up in time, and actually finished this. 8/10

Well I'm glad she finally got over her past. I'm glad he finally got the courage to finally confess with her. What a good way to end a series, although theses extra eps.

Awwww that was a cute ending! Very huge Nagisa x Tomoya there! :D
Usually, I hate shoujo romance-y Anime, but this was a really good one. I can't wait to finish the next episode and the OVA so I can start the ~After Story~. I liked the imaginary world stuff the best. ^^"

I kind of wish they had a little bit more of a development with Tomoya and his dad, but aybe the cover that in the ~After Story~. .__.

Finally after 21 episodes and 21 minutes in the final episode Tomoya does it, how epic. /sarcasm.

I loved this series, but I think the producers of this show went to slow during the middle episodes with the story. I really want to watch the movie now, as people say it is really good.

9/10 for the series from me. Almost a "masterpiece" but not quite!

it was a good ending
akio's part was really touching and my fav part of the ep
second fav would be tomoya's confession, and nagisa's
happy reaction was really cute.i gave clannad a 10~
altho i hoped the part about the fantasia world wouldve been more cleared up.
i really enjoyed the story of this anime, except for the fact that kyou(whos awesome) got dumped so easily.also, clannad was one of the funniest animes ive seen, esp in the beginning when sunohara gets owned by tomoyo with all the game allusions.
time for clannad after story now~

I have a question... but before that... good thing Tomoyo made his confession.

My question is... after the wedding, and throughout the episode whenever there will be a incident Fuko always appears does this means she is still in a COMA and even though i notice her friends dont rememer Fuko quite a bit, geesh im so confuse help me pls

Yes, she's still in coma because no one remembers her and that will make the most sense as the real Fuko won't remember all the things she did while in her ghost state. I think she recovered sometime during the 5 year intermission in after story though.

Doesn't really matter if it was predictable or not, it's the execution that counts. And this episode was executed extremely well. I also don't see how anyone can say that Tomoya's confession was rushed, it's been building up the entire season.

Predictable Ending but Loved It so much! ^^

Man~, im really envy with Tomoya for having Nagisa
Nagisa is perfectly well-matched with Tomoya
As the teacher said in previous chapter that Nagisa is the one who can tamed Tomoya ^^
And Also Tomoya is the only one that can lifted up Nagisa and understand her most

well, i think from the game(not the anime), kyou and tomoyo is also matched with tomoya
But still IMO Nagisa is the best one for Tomoya

Rock Nagisa x Tomoya! ^3^
