Clannad: After Story, Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki Recommendations
Both have similar topics. When a person losses someone they loved and have to raise their childrens on their own. Extremily poweful and heartbreaking. Cute childrens ( ushio, ame) that have sad stories on their own. Both have a fantasy but intead of making the story boring and unrealistic, make it more powerful.
If you like it, you will definetly like the other.
Similar emphases on family and both leave you with a similar satisfying feeling. Plenty of drama, heartbreak, and a little comedy to make these slice of life stories about families growing up some of the best anime there are. Clannad After Story has more romance and much more drama while Wolf Children has more emphasis on the kids growing up and discovering who they want to be.
Both involve a parent raising their child (or children in Wolf Children) whilst overcoming their own personal issues. It's difficult to say exactly how similar the two situations are without giving huge spoilers, but they're pretty similar.
Also, both series have a fantastic soundtrack and incredible animation, and they're both extremely emotional watches. Chances are that one or another might make you shed a tear at some point. And if you were left with somewhat of a void after watching either CAS or WC, one of these will probably fill it.
(Bear in mind, though, that if you're going to watch After Story,
Everyone takes away something different when watching a series. When I think I found a new favourite, I really ask myself, what was so great about what I just watched? What about it moved me so much? I ask myself that of Clannad: After Story (CAS) and Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki (OK).
CAS and OK have very sad and poignant moments. OK has the saddest opening I've seen to date. CAS made me cry at the end. Without revealing the plot, tragedy strikes and the story telling is very well done in both.
Raising a child has its ups and downs
Both anime have a heavy focus on real-life struggles, though with a bit of magic sprinkled within the plot. They're also massive tearjerkers with somewhat ambiguous endings, though Wolf Children's is less controversial. And finally, both of them are about learning to continue hoping and carry on, even in the darkest of moments - wonderful art pieces of inspiration and love.
An even more powerful, even more pure, beautiful film about parenting and romance. Clannad: After Story has the emotions, Ookami Kodomo No Ame to Yuki has it too. Both are Slice of Life genre. Clannad and Clannad AS are both about family and children, so is Ookami Kodomo No Ame to Yuki. Both are at times funny, romantic, sad, tragic and joyous. Both are highly recommended.
