Good ending with the Dad and stuff and the asking out, should've been a kiss though. Or even hear a yes even though it was implied

My heart...ahh..

Wasn't expecting much, but Clannad was a very, very, pleasant surprise. If people consider After Story sooo much better it must be a freaking masterpiece, since I liked Clannad a ton.

Oh no, Nagisa watched more of her dad's videos. So much pain and sadness. (T_T)
But then Akio appeared and saved the day! (^_^) I got goosebumps when he appeared!

The play was wonderful, but what's even more awesome is that Tomoya finally manned up and asked Nagisa out!
The ship is officially sailing with Tomoya being the captain!
This was a beautiful ending! I love it!
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

Amazing episode!!! When Tomoya asked Nagisa out at the end I was literally tearing up like Nagisa omg it finally happened!!!

When Akio came to save the day during the play that was so touching and incredible moment. And the play was a success!

Fantastic anime, absolutely one of the best I've seen. (Excited to watch the extra episode, movie, OVAs, and second season) <3

I was totally thinking I wasn't going to cry, felt totally alright about it. Was sad that she was clamming up on stage but wasn't at cry-level.

And it changed literally the instant the old man slammed his fist on the wall and yelled yer name. Instant tears. What a good moment.

Really love this anime.

Oh man that was really touching though. I guess the tears won't start until next season maybe.

Akio came to save the day. I love his and Sanae's presence in the last couple episodes.

I got teary eyed during Nagisa's play recalling the significance of the girl and the junk robot in the illusionary world. Then I got teary eyed again during Tomoya's (very brief) interaction with his father.

Kotomi arc is best arc though and by a considerable margin.

The only proper reaction to this episode was to laugh out loud.

It's amusing to read the posts prior to the release of After Story. This final episode gripped my heart with all its might and went to town with a wild range of heartbreak, inspiration, and beauty. Keeping this at a well deserved 9/10, looking forward to the rewatch of my 2nd favorite anime.

This was one of the best anime episodes I've seen so far. Wow, it was so beautiful and thrilling to watch, I couldn't wait the climax; both sad and emotional parts were the best. The confession of Tomoya and the stunning animation (time flashes) rounded up everything. Can't describe it better.

Though I didn't cry ^^, it went deep in the heart, I tell ya. Truly sensational.

This episode was great!!!!

The lesson we get is that sometimes parents have to sacrifice a lot for their children. Akio and Sanae have to do the same for Nagisa. And I feel so bad for Akio. He was such a good actor! And he was so enthusiastic to be a great actor.

Thank God! Nagisa did her play finely.

Now can't wait for After Story!!!! But before that one more episode is left.Wow! xD

As a whole I give 8/10 for this season!

*gags* Ugh. I think I threw up in my mouth a little.

I knew it was coming, but seriously, ugh. They went for the dullest girl. There's literally nothing notable about her. Even Ryou is more interesting than Nagisa, though only just barely.

Still giving it an 8/10. It petered out after the Toyomo arc was over leading to this obvious conclusion. I would easily have given it a 9/10 had the final arc been different. It wouldn't even have to involve my favorite girl, but they could have gotten creative like have Okazaki or his dad get hit by a car or something. Maybe something like that will happen in After Story, but these anime are rated on a season by season basis.

Anyways, I really loved the series overall and I'm looking forward to the alternate endings. I'll get the VN when I can.

And.. it's over. The first half of it, that is. It was great episode, in fact only one of two such episodes that were really moving in this series (the other being Fuko's sister wedding even though her route could have been 2 episodes shorter in favor of other girls).

What's left now is one extra and one alternative route episode.

Still, the series had a lot to be deserved, especially in comparison with feels and visual novel. We got only three routes animated while characters like Kyou, Ryou or Yukine were horribly undeveloped. Tomoyo's best route was only scratched and Misae was also completely left out. The same applies to Kappei or Sunohara.

Well, maybe they saved something for the second series, I'm hoping for that. I understand 22 episodes is not enough to tell all 10 routes. If I have to judge, it was good slice of life series but the game is obviously way better.

7/10 Nice build up for second season and slice of life I honestly recommend although it's very mundane and plain at times. This really can't stand by its own as you only got half of the story without the sequel.

As the saying goes , "The Truth is always harsh." But it is always been grateful .
Surprisingly , I didn't expected something from that drama . Too concentrated .
The penultimate episode . Perhaps . It has a lovely ending ~ !!! :D

The last few episodes shot the anime up from being a 7/10 to a 8/10. This was the first time in Clannad that I cried and almost to the extent with Madoka Magica and Toradora.

I couldn't resist crying, Akio's character is simply amazing, refusing to continue with his dream to take care of her daughter, that speech to motivate Nagisa was incredible.

That confession! Tomoya my man.

Amazing episode, I'm speechless.

Well, all that's left for the first season is the extra episode and the OVA. Then After Story.

I liked the confessional ending. What bothered me was the play. It wasn't as sad as Nagisa sort of made it out to be. I thought it was rushed a bit too (even though there were hints of it throughout the series, I thought there would be more to it..)
I give this season an 8. I stayed this long because I want to watch After Story and also, I like slice of life anime. I think the girls are so cute, I actually do love all of them >//<

I wasn't too fond of the overly dramatic parts... but that ending had me tearing up. Overall Clannad is less bad than I thought, once you give it a chance and try to get invested in the characters.

WTF Nagisa, what a crybaby. Who could possibly want to go out with her? What an annoying character, tbh.

Also, I've heard a lot of people say how great and sad Clannad is and yet there wasn't a single episode that brought me even close to crying. No emotions at all. And that's not a good sign for a series because I'm someone who usually is very empathic and starts crying pretty easily when watching series or reading books. Yet there was nothing. I guess I expected too much.
