Audience Reviews for Clannad
"This is a world that has ended. Nothing is born, nothing dies. Not even passing time exists." While I can understand why Anime doesn't cater towards most mainstream audience demographics in America, I will say that, in general, most Anime series, that I've seen, seem to deliver much more humanistic themes than any other entertainment medium utilizing western-style story-telling methods. Clannad, the TV series, is a prime example of this. (Sorta like Disney meets John Hughes.) "I wonder if anything will ever change... Will that day ever come?" Here is yet another TV series that I was fortunate enough to discover while going through an exhaustively stressful point in my life; especially since the backstory involves establishing and running a club at school. "Soon, everything changes. Well, at least it does eventually. Fun things, happy things, they'll all eventually change some day, ya know." I have to admit that I can be an extremely callous individual at times, but it's art pieces like this that inspire me to be a more pleasant person (and seemingly others, due to its popularity). "Just go and find more. All you have to do is find other fun and happy things; it's not so hard." Additionally, the series has an awesome soundtrack; fitting for the message(s) it conveys (this seems to be a re-occurring theme in shows I enjoy). "It's NOT a STAR, it's a STARFISH!" So far, this series holds the record for making me cry more times than any other film or show; especially "After Story." ------------------------------------------------- 1, 2, 3 4, 5 6, 7, 8, 9 10, 11 12, 13, 14 15, 16 17, 18 19, 20 21, 22 23, 25 26, 27, 28 29, 30 24 33 34, 35 36, 37 38, 39 40 41, 42
Couldn't recommend this enough. It is heart-warming and entirely poignant. At it's very best, this is how anime should feel.
The movie is so worthy of watching but the series is so much better, especially the second season, 'Clannad After Story'. That I give a perfect 5 stars!
