Clannad is set in a high-school located in some Japanese town. Okazaki Tomoya is a third-year student who doesn`t take his studies seriously. Always late for class, he`s seen as a delinquent by the rest of his classmates who are busy preparing for their entrance examinations. Needless to say, he hasn`t too many close friends either.
Tomoya seems not to mind too - until one day he meets a girl, Furukawa Nagisa, who is left alone without friends on this school, because everybody she knew already graduated. What a clumsy girl, he thinks at first. But he can`t leave her alone and so, while helping her, he meets a few other girls from his school. Although he doesn`t care much about them at first, he soon opens his heart to them as they get to know each other better.
The first half of the series was actually quite a weird story... But after Fuko's story arc is finished, it starts to go into the more serious part of the story. I thought it was really well done by doing that, even if it did seem to drag on just a little bit in a couple of episodes.
I really wish they had shown more of the twins together. For some reason they reminded me a lot of Tsukasa and Kagami from Lucky Star (I honestly don't know why even).
But the main stars, Okazaki and Furukawa really make this show a beautiful romance.
Not to mention her parents are so awesome.
OMG, probably one of the most beautiful art styles of any anime I've seen so far. It really makes it seem like a much more mature romance show simply because of it, while still maintaining that stylized "teenage romance" side.
Voice acting, music (9/10)
Really well done. The music was amazing, the voice talents felt (sounded?) so natural, and there really isnt a whole lot else to say about this.
That was the only thing i knew about it going in. It was given to me without an explanation of the story or anything, except to watch it. The only reason I'm not giving this a 10/10 is because there isn't enough Fuko in the last half to satisfy me.
