Now if you look on Anime News Network or other anime sites, you will notice that Clannad After Story ranks consistently very high on the charts. There is a good reason for this. I'm an adult male and I have to tell you that this anime had my tears drop off my face without me noticing many times, especially towards the latter half of this anime (which would be Clannad After Story collection 2 that comes out later this year). Then there are a couple of scenes which would make me cry uncontrollably - the background music used at these scenes alone are enough to make you feel like crying because the scenes come back in your mind. It is not that I'm particularly weak-minded, but this is not your average Japanese anime that only cares about dating and love between a couple. I'm sure a lot of people have seen such typical "romantic" anime and have gotten over that kind already. The thing that sets anime apart from them is that it touches upon the importance of having family and friends like no other anime or any other entertainment show, if I'm allowed to say so boldly.Read more ›
Clannad is perhaps the best show I've seen. It provides humor with engaging drama and romance, with content that is truly suitable for almost anyone. After Story elevates the series from 'just' a very good high-school anime to something superlative. You certainly may cry, but I don't think you'll be disappointed.
First of all there is NO option for English, only Japanese, and 2.0 at that. Don't get me wrong, i almost always prefer Japanese with subtitles. There have been 2 maybe 3 anime ever that i preferred the English language version, Clannad could go either way, the VAs for both languages knocked it out of the park for the first season. What upsets me about this, is the fact that the subtitles are just absolutely TERRIBLE. This day and age subtitles shouldnt take up 1/3 of the screen, in a bright yellow font, with thick black borders, and be so low resolution as to look like they were done on an NES.
Then there is the fact that there are no REAL special features on either disc, just clean opening/closings. No artwork, interviews, heck not even any previews. The whole package seems kinda shoddily thrown together, which is absolutely disgraceful for such a masterpiece of story telling and animation.
If you see this for 20 bucks at Best Buy or something, go for it, it's worth that much, but the 40 dollar price tag is absolutely ridiculous for this half-assed release. I'd recommend supporting the fan-subbers on this one. The love and care i saw put into the fan sub release when i first saw it was what prompted me to support these DVDs. Had i known the actual quality of the product before i spent money on it i never would have. I genuinely feel ripped off.
EDIT: DVDs have dropped in price. Stated issues still stand, but now it's worth the $20 if you decided against the BD release. You're still better off buying the complete season which IS dubbed and averages out to the same price as buying both DVD 1 and 2 volumes.

|When are they going to release an English dub? :(||
Here is an encouraging article:
Apparently the fans have been asking for it and Sentai Filmworks complied. Nice to see that they care.
