Clannad Movie (Anime) add
First of all, my opinions on the anime of Clannad. (I haven't read the VN, so I can't comment on that.) I thought both were kind of average. They were fairly entertaining, but I didn't find them to be very special. I gave both seasons a 7, as well as the specials.

Art and Animation: 7

The background animation is pretty good. The characters not so much. The original Clannad artstyle was already hard to get used to, but by the second season I had already accepted it. However, the movie style is awful.

Soundtrack: 7

Nothing noticeable really, but it does it's job. Of paticular note is the ...

This is basically what Fate/staynight could have been. The format is kind of similar to a trailer.

First of all, the animation is absolutely fantastic, and the soundtrack isn't bad either.

In this version of the Holy Grail War, the main character is instead a girl called Ayaka, whose family was involved in the previous war. She doesn't want to get involved in the present war (apparently they take place every 8 years now). However, she gets attacked by Lancer, and ends up summoning Saber. Who is male.

The rest of the OVA is composed of really quick flashes of scenes and battles. It's confusing to watch, and ...

I only watched it to see if it was really that bad. And it was.

Art: 7

It was OK … I guess

Sound: 7

Also average

As a Code Geass fan, I’ve been looking forward to this movie for a while. However, when I actually watched it, I was a tad bit disappointed. The movie wasn’t bad, but it definitely wasn’t on the same level as the original Code Geass.

Story: 7
The plot has similar elements to the original series, with Knightmares, Geass, a war, terrorists, themes of racism, etc. However, the plot doesn’t seem nearly as interesting as the original. This movie was mostly dedicated to introducing the characters and the world, so perhaps we’ll see some improvement in the later movies.

Art: 9
The background art is detailed and ...

Two different specials, two different tones.

The first special, Episode 7.5, has a very comedic tone. It was just another slice of life episode, but it was probably one of the most hilarious episodes out of the entire show.

The second special, Episode 13, is set after the finale of the show and takes a more serious tone. In this episode, we get to learn about “dreams and goals”. This episode really shows how many of the characters changed, especially the protagonist, Kanata. We also see how the recent battle affected our main characters.

The art and music for the two specials are as stellar as usual. ...

Sora no Woto tells a charming and unique tale of five girls in the military. It takes slice-of-life and sets it in the middle of a post-apocalyptic war and the result is a truly well written and touching story.

A first impression of this anime would be “K-On + Military”. It’s not hard to assume this; the art style is very similar to K-On, and the cast is composed of five girls with traits that seem very similar to the five girls from K-On.

Story: 9

As a slice of life, most of the episodes have rather slow and simple plots. Some of them are light-hearted and ...

As someone who watched the anime first, I found the manga to be equally entertaining.

The manga is much shorter than the anime, with each episode compressed into one chapter. However, this does not detract from the story much at all.

Personally, I found the manga art style better than the anime. The manga art style was very expressive and helped convey the characters' emotions beautifully. The witch labyrinths were not as effective as in the anime, but still very surreal.

Even if you haven't watched the anime, the manga is still a brilliant read. I would recommend that you read this now.
