Description: Tomoya Okazaki is a high school student who is unhappy with his life. One day while walking to school, Tomoya meets a girl named Nagisa Furukawa, a student who is repeating her last year of high school due to her very poor health and absences. With Nagisa’s soft-spoken personality, and her wish to reopen the disbanded drama club, Tomoya helps her get her wish. Facing encounters with many people, the two slowly fall in love and face life changing events.
– I have not read the manga.
– Lot of people say they don’t like Clannad. I can understand why the first season would be boring, but I honestly find afterstory to be really touching and heart breaking. The end can be iffy too, but when watching Clannad you have to be ‘open’ to it…? I would recommend not being criticizing about it.
– The only part, which is the end and a pretty big part, of Clannad that I don’t really like is the fantasy play on the plot. The entire plot was realistic, except for the ending. However, the fantasy part was implied before it actually happened…so it is predictable :/
– Apparently there is a game of Clannad. I believe it is Otome/Bishojo (for guys), and I know it can be played on different versions of the PlayStation (Not the PS4)
