Tortured by his past and pained by an uncertain future, Tomoya drifts through life with an almost overwhelming anger and emptiness. But when he meets the mysterious, charming and shy Nagisa, his world seems to change. Drawn in by her gentle but lonely spirit, he begins to experience the joy life can bring. But as he discovers the reason for his newfound friend's loneliness, Tomoya also finds that life can be frighteningly fragile. Poignant. Compelling. Heartbreaking. Clannad is one of the most cherished anime of all time. And now it's available for the first time in beautiful, high-definition clarity.
The romantic comedy Clannad began as an online visual novel developed by Key in 2004 that was adapted to manga, CDs, a feature film, and this 2007 television series. Bitterly disillusioned high school senior Tomoya Okazaki was recruited by Hikarisaka High as a potential basketball star, but he injured his shoulder in a fight with his alcoholic father and can no longer play. As a self-described delinquent and slacker, he shows up late, plays hooky with his friend Sunohara, and sleeps in class--unthinkable misconduct in the formal Japanese school system. But he's really a very nice guy, as he reveals when he strikes up a conversation with Nagisa Furukawa, a diffident girl who's repeating her senior year after a serious illness. As Okazaki helps Nagisa realize her dream of reviving the school drama club, he gets involved with an assortment of odd characters: reclusive, brilliant Kotome turns out to be a friend from when he was a little boy; athletic Tomoyo is trying to live down her reputation as a brawler who beat up bullies at her old school; Fuko may be the spirit of a comatose girl who was injured in a traffic accident. The tone of Clannad shifts unexpectedly from shojo romance to harem comedy to magical girl adventure as the filmmakers throw in offbeat elements that move the story in unexpected directions. Fuko seems to fade out of the main characters' lives in a bittersweet farewell, only to recur as an enthusiastic, if ineffectual, magical heroine. Okazaki gets serious indigestion when Nagisa, Kotome, and several other girls make him bento boxes, but the other girls quietly give up when they realize Nagisa is the right girl for him. Clannad may be a difficult series to characterize, but it's easy to enjoy and will appeal to fans of Azumanga Daioh. It spawned a sequel, Clannad: After Story, and an odd, brief OVA in which Okazaki and Tomoyo end up together.

I find the scenery in After Clannad to be beautifully drawn and a character of it's own...it adds a lot to the story. Even with the filler episodes...it's worth watching completely once and then you can pick and choose which episodes to watch later on.

That's a very good price....I paid about $45 each set recently and still worth every penny. I liked After Clannad better but I still couldn't believe that the main girl character had to repeat again. But if you didn't watch the first season then it would make some sense, I guess they did that... Read More
