Hello Key Visual arts club!

I'm going to start a new series of journals covering each series of anime we offer galleries for.

I'll start with Clannad. For some of us. (myself included) We have not seen clannad in many many years. (6 years for me)

Having a discussion via the blog seems like a great way for members to interact with the series, and if Popular enough, we can start a discussion.



"What do you like about Clannad?"

"Who is your favorite character?"

"On a scale of 1 - 10, how dango are you?"

"Starfish power?"

"How many times did you cry when watching Clannad?"

"Favorite LOL moment?"

'What do you like about Clannad?'
The story. It is exactly what I like. It combines slice of life(moments of life, like tears, smiles, hanging out with friends, talking nonsense from time to time, etc) with all those scenes that can make you 'break' and fantasy, but not too much. Just enough to make the series interesting. It ia very.... realistic. I mean, you could even believe that all of these things (the lights, the wishes, the parallel world) really do exist!
'Who is your favourite character?'
Kyou !!!!!
'On a scale 1-10, how dango are you?'
5, I guess....
'Starfish power?'
And, what am I supposed to answer?...
'How many times did you cry when watching Clannad?'
Countless!
'Favourite LOL moment?'
When Tomoya did that chant and he was locked up in the storage room with Kyou! So funny!!!!

I do want to say that I am currently rewatching Clannad (with my boyfriend too!! .... I kinda feel sorry for showing him but.... it's a great anime \(^0 ^ /)). I'm almost halfway done with Afterstory, and I also finished the visual novel just 2 months ago (: I recommend everyone that's watched Clannad to read/play the visual novel. There's more depth into the stories and into Tomoya's thoughts and there's also (if i remember correctly) three more sides of the story that weren't included in the anime.

"What do you like about Clannad?"

I love the drama and the sad scenes and the music!! But mostly, I loved the how much it impacted me. I mean... How I look on life, how I want to be as a parent, and just.... How my emotions just exploded into all these pieces Q. Q It stole a piece of my soul, I swear...
- - - - - - - - - - -
"Who is your favorite character?"

Furukawa Nagisa with Tomoyo and Kotomi in a tight second. I enjoyed the character development that Nagisa had, plus in the visual novel she just.... (even though I'm a girl) she just became so cute, especially during Afterstory >///< :touchtouch: ...Tomoyo because of how much she wants to act like a fragile "normal" girl. That just.... makes her so much more cuter Q. Q But also probably because of how she acts, how dense she is about things, especially in the visual novel. xD Kotomi.... well, I just love her, she is just so cute Q. Q Just gotta run when she plays the violin...

(Am I really a girl... wut? xD)

"On a scale of 1 - 10, how dango are you?"

Q. Q sadly, I think only 6. I never got into the dango fever... But dangos will be with me forever!! :icondangoplz:

"Starfish power?"

B/ ........ o 3o
Activate Starfish Power-- Boop.

"How many times did you cry when watching Clannad?"

Too much to count (TT. TT ... I will say, I never cried when I read the visual novel. (o. o The only time I was close to crying was the little monologue that Nagisa had at the end when she was talking about the lights and the city (I mean, all my feels~nrrgghhhh~)

"Favorite LOL moment?"

When Meii-chan was calling Tomoya "onii-chan" and he freaked out, and then Kotomi and the Fuyubashi twins appeared and Ryou dropped her ice cream and.... just that whole scene xD

"What do you like about Clannad?"

-It's the fact that it makes me cry. Every now and then I need some excuse to cry like a baby. Otherwise I'll just explode with misery and start feeling depressed over every single thing. I also love the character designs. Heck, I'd love to hit on almost any of the girls. :'D The animation is simply beautiful as well and the SOUNDTRACKS. Dear god the soundtracks... <3

"Who is your favorite character?"

-I'd have to sayyyyy... Kotomi.
No, this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she received that teddy bear.
Absolutely nothing.
It's not like I want to share it with her or anything. ._.
Shut up.
...and Sunohara. Just for the lols.

-FUCK YEAH! <3

-Unable to count... but let's just say that watching all the episodes in the IT-class with no tissues was a horrible idea.

-All the Tomoya x Sunohara moments as well as the short Ryou x Nagisa moment. xDDDDD <3

Well, as the Clannad Man, I'm kind of obligated to answer this, aren't I? ^^

1. "What do you like about Clannad?"
Rather than write an encyclopedia, I'll go with the reason that most people have confided in me: Life-changing emotional impact

2. "Who is your favorite character?"
Nagisa Furukawa followed by Kyou Fujibayashi. I'd go into the reasons why, but I'd write a book's worth. In short, I think their character development was expertly crafted in impactful ways not necessarily apparent to an untrained eye. Also note that I purposely removed Tomoya and Ushio from this ranking: Tomoya because he is the main protagonist, and Ushio because she's so gosh-darn cute I don't know how anyone couldn't love her!

3. "On a scale of 1 - 10, how dango are you?"
Well, I'm the Clannad Man & I run dangodaikazoku.com, so if that doesn't give me an '∞' I don't know what will!

4. "Starfish power?"
I'm just hoping I'm better off than a sea slug...

5. "How many times did you cry when watching Clannad?"
Jeez, I don't know... but I can tell you that I did!

6. "Favorite LOL moment?"
The two scenes that immediately come to mind are those where everyone brings food to Tomoya while he is suspended and the scene when it is revealed that Nagisa is pregnant. Tomoya's reactions (and Akio's) are priceless!

I do agree, Clannad is capable of extracting empathy from the source, like a well drawing water.

Kyou is also my favorite, there's just something about tsundere.

LOL yeah you know how dango you are when your legacy has dango in the name.

Yeah we all cried i think. Makes you reflect on the amount of effort it takes to make ppl do that. To play with emotions.

Also, saw those pics and video. Great presentation! you did Key Justice I think, even in the short time frame.

Hmm...it's been a long time. Let's see...

"What do you like about Clannad?"- Like with all Key stories, the emotions are real and you can feel them. I think a good story is something you can relate to, laugh to and cry to, and nothing does that better than adding just the right amount of emotion to it. Clannad does that, with ALL their characters. Not many medias can claim that.

"Who is your favorite character?"- A tie between Tomoyo and Tomoyo. I liked them in the story overall, but after doing Tomoyo's route in the VN and watching Tomoyo's OVA in the anime, it made me like them even more. Probably why I ship them together LOL :XD:. :icontomoyaplz: :heart: :icontomoyoplz:.

"On a scale of 1 - 10, how dango are you?"- A strong 8. 10 if you give me a new TomoyaxTomoyo pic LOL XD.

"Starfish power?"- :iconohyeahplz:

"How many times did you cry when watching Clannad?"- :iconitsasecretplz:. But I will say I cried the most when Tomoyo and Tomoya got back together during their route in the VN and in Tomoyo's OVA.

"Favorite LOL moment?" - Any time Sunohara challenged Tomoyo. But Tomoyo pushing Sunohara down the dust chute in the anime and his scream made me fall out of my chair. Tomoya and Tomoyo's juggle combo against Sunohara as well as Tomoyo's abuse to Sunohara during the baseball game deserves honorable mention.

Tomoyo may be a future character I work with in my vector art wallpapers. I don't do shippings though. XD

LOL kool aid guy. Perfect.

Indeed, those parts were funny.

I just LOVE Clannad. It holds a special place in my heart and for me it'll always be the best vn/anime. Clannad is a touching, heartwarming story about treasuring family. :iconnagisaplz:

Well, choosing just one favorite is tough...I love them all! I guess I like Ushio, Nagisa and Fuuko the most.

I am 100,000000...../10 Dango. XD Can't help but love em. Dango,dango, dango, dango, dango daikazoku~ :icondangoplz:
Starfishes are cute as well~ :icondango-starfishplz:

Ugh...A lot. The number would be too big if I counted... :iconcryforeverplz:
Too many! Drunk Nagisa, Starfish vs Dango, Akio and Sanae making up a new name for Tomoya, Tomoya imagining MeixSunohara and TomoyaxSunohara. etc...
