"After Story (2008), the sequel to the popular shojo (girls') series Clannad, begins a few months after the original story ends. The first several episodes feel the same, as Okazaki, Nagisa, and their friends at Hikarisaka High continue their familiar high jinks. Okazaki tries to get his nutty friend Sunohara back on the soccer team, and there's a strange flashback story about Misae, the supervisor of Sunohara's dorm, and her cat. Nagisa's illness prevents her from graduating with her class, but Okazaki receives his diploma and gets a job at an electrical maintenance company. After he proposes to Nagisa, Okazaki becomes a hard worker, a model husband, and, eventually, a loving father to their daughter Ushio. Unfortunately, all the fun drains out of the show. The harem comedy and magical girl subplots that enlivened Clannad fall by the wayside, along with the slapstick comedy and Okazaki's sense of mischief. As the revelations, reconciliations, reversals, and tragedies pile up, Clannad devolves into the anime equivalent of the old three-hanky movie. Voice actor Dave Matranga narrates much of the series, and he makes Okazaki an extremely likable character, but he's stuck in a soap opera. Although the story concludes with episode 21, the filmmakers add three chapters of flashbacks and alternate endings. Episode 25, ""Another World: Kyou Chapter,"" parallels the OVA ""Tomoyo Chapter,"" but after watching Okazaki marry and suffer with Nagisa, it's disorienting to see him pursued by the twins Ryou and Kyou Fujibayashi. After Story lacks the broader appeal of Clannad, but it will delight fans of romantic tearjerkers. (Rated TV PG: cartoon violence, minor risqué humor, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

A few months have passed since Tomoya declared his love to Nagisa. Now their relationship is entering a new phase, and neither is quite sure where it will take them. As their friends move on to lives of their own, Tomoya and Nagisa get ready to start a family of their own. But Nagisa's health has always been precarious, and an event that should bring nothing but joy delivers tragedy instead. Now Tomoya must learn to accept the bitter with the sweet and to understand that the most important thing is to hold onto love, no matter what. Don't miss the heartbreak and triumph of the masterful conclusion to one of the most beloved anime series ever in CLANNAD AFTER STORY!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Unrecognized Masterpiece March 18, 2011
Format:DVD
First I am just a medical student, though I have taken film and media study classes I want people to know that I don't feel that I am in a position to make any grand claims and such. All the following of my review is just my opinion.

It would be impossible even given a book sized amount of text to describe the artistic and storytelling merit of this work. While I could praise this work for hours I will try to give people who are interested a quick overview. Truth be told, I am not an anime fan, in fact you can say I greatly dislike anime. I am also not a fan of love stories, romance, tragic stories, school life stories, or of Japanese works in which I had to read the English subtitles, but Clannad was all of this and it blew my mind. I have been searching my whole life for a work I could call a masterpiece and this was it. I was forced to watch this by a younger sibling and though I struggled within the first episode this work won me over. I have never seen a work so well crafted together in a combination of good storytelling; strong character development, artistic value, impressive visuals, and soul haunting music all weave together for form this beautiful masterpiece. It was because of Clannad that I was interested in what define "masterpiece", before Clannad I have seen the pinnacles of each medium (Citizen Kane, Watchmen, Ulysses, Hamlet, etc.) and I must say that Clannad part of that list.

Clannad was based off a Japanese visual novel (a medium we do not have here in America) and since it's visual novel release have been ranked as one of the greatest visual novels of all time, influencing many others, and has been called the Citizen Kane and Watchmen of visual novels for how it changed that medium from dating sims to psychological, mind bending, emotional stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like putting a diamond in a soggy pizza box April 29, 2011
By Luxmesa
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me make one thing perfectly clear. I love this show. The characters are great, the stories are fantastic and it's just a wonderful show.

Having said that, the box sucks. This is the first anime DVD I've bought, so I don't know if this is common place, but the set comes with four discs that are just stacked on top of each other like I bought a hundred blank dvds. Usually when I get a DVD box set, the individual disks are in a sort of book where you can flip through and pick out an individual disk. I guess doing this saves space, but that's something else about the box that doesn't make sense. The disks take up a little more than half of the total interior of the box and the rest is filled with a white foam sheet. I want to take it out because it looks incredibly ghetto, but I'm afraid that if I do, the disks will fall out and get scratched in the box.

The actual disks are nice. This version includes the Japanese and English dubs as well as English subtitles. And the best part is, the signs are actually subtitled! I watched the original Clannad on Netflix, and I loved the show, but none of the Japanese text was translated. Usually it wasn't too hard to figure out what was going on, but occasionally an episode would end with a shot of a bulletin or some words on a chalkboard and anyone who doesn't speak Japanese is completely lost(and a few who might speak Japanese as well. I've taken Japanese for two years, and I was still struggling to read all of the signs).

5.0 out of 5 stars Clannad: After Story is Amazing! February 12, 2011
Format:DVD
Clannad and Clannad: After Story are two of my favorite anime's. Clannad: After Story picks up where Clannad left off, with Tomoya and Nagisa in a relationship. The story follows the ups and downs of their relationship, from bouts of Nagisa's sickness to Tomoya's struggles with his father and not wanting to be like him and wanting to take care of Nagisa. The pacing of the show is excellent and it never gets boring, it can go from hilarious hijinks (Nagisa's parents) to really tragic moments that make you feel for the characters and what they are going through. I cant remember a recent anime that actually made me care for the characters, it can be a real tear-jerker sometimes. Moving on from the story this anime also has some of the best animation you will find, its very crisp and clean. As for the audio department, the English dubs aren't bad but you lose some of the innuendo's and subtlety's of the Japanese audio track, as with most dubs in my opinion. I recommend using the Japanese audio with English subs. All in all if you like funny anime with a dose of drama and romance do yourself a favor and pick this up, you wont be disapointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, touching, masterful. February 12, 2011
By DRS
Format:DVD
Clannad: After Story follows Clannad and is as good as its predecessor.

It is the continuation of one of the best romance anime series out there and explores relationships more deeply than the first series. It can certainly be a tear jerker so keep some tissues handy but it is a wonderful story with many uplifting and entertaining moments as well. It was moving and powerful. It is not as fast-paced as Clannad but instead focuses more on the relationships between the central characters and their lives together after the first series. It is different than Clannad but it is just as good and if you liked Clannad you will enjoy this series as well.

For me personally listening with Japanese audio and English subtitles feels "right" (versus English dubbed) but to each his/her own. Once again I applaud the team who created this series. An excellent piece of work.
