Toei and Kyoto Animation are known for being the two studios that adapted Key's works to animation-- Toei did the first Kanon series and the Air film as well as this production, while Kyoto did a (longer and better-produced) alternate Kanon series, the Air TV series, and the two seasons for Clannad. I watched this a while back after watching the first season of the television anime, not knowing a different studio had animated and produced it, and I feel that while it has its merits, Kyoto handily won the competition this time.

The difficulty of adapting the Clannad visual novel to film is that, well, Clannad is very, very long, even if you cut the story all the way down to Nagisa/Ushio's story and avoid the quasi-spiritual way Key "rewound" time. But given the constraints they had, Toei did a fine job tracing the important steps in the story of Tomoya and Nagisa. Unfortunately for Toei, the release of the film was very quickly followed by the airing of the TV anime, which not only thoroughly explored the stories of every female character, but more faithfully followed the visual novel. It's as if the film ended up being someone's recollection of the story rather than the real thing. Ultimately the sheer volume of story material meant that Kyoto took the more prudent approach of giving the very rich story 47+ episodes over two seasons-- and even then, despite the minor detours that the TV series takes, the series is dense with detail and character development.

The idea to condense the story around Tomoya/Nagisa's relationship, the strange dream they share, and the central theme of "family", however, is this film's primary strength, and by focusing the production in this way, we get a unique retelling of the story.

I have watched Clannad Vol. 1 & 2 as well as the After Story 3 times through and I absolutely loved it and fell in love with all of the characters, story line & even the animation; but after watching this movie I was really disappointed.

First off the characters:
Tomoya was more so the burden and hardly stepped in to help Nagisa with the drama club or play and there just wasn't the cute attraction between the two like how it was in the show.
Nagisa was more assertive and confident then Tomoya which was the complete opposite of the show; that really gave a whole different feel to the story which I fell in love with.
As far as the other characters (the ones they decided to put in the movie at least!!) I would say they were pretty close to what you'd expect.

Secondly, the story line:
I do understand that they were trying to fit the whole story into one movie but my goodness did they slaughter it! All of the cute moments that were in the show are non-exsistant and were replaced by seemingly odd senarios if you are familiar with the show at all. Everything was off from the way they met to the way he decides to be a father to Ushio.
Don't get me wrong, I know it can't just be the exact same thing as the show but I would have preffered it if they had just played off those memorable moments rather than just completely change them.
Also, the ending left me feeling sad and empty with little to feel good about.

Lastly, the animation:
It takes some getting used to, it didn't "feel" like Clannad. If you were familiar with the show you will definetly be thrown off by how much it was changed. (Personally felt it looked "cheap" in comparison.)

I give it 3 stars mainly because I am a devoted Clannad fan and as long as it has the name I can't just turn my back to it completely.

I've never seen the Air series so I have no clue of the comparison to that one, as some other reviewers have put. I do know it is a well done movie that plays off and compacts the storyline of the series. Sure you do not get to see a few of the characters that were in the series. This is due to the fact if plays off the main storyline ending.

This is not as in-depth as the series, and you may get more out of the series than the movie if you watched that first. On another note it is a great stand alone with in my opinion a good storyline with a bit of humor and romance. To me it is all about growing up, as we see the two protagonists develop in such a short time. I can not say that it does all the development well, but is well enough to get the point across of the couple.

Now for what I mean by the title of this review. It would have been better if they played off the alternate reality in the series where the main male has his doubts, and a lot of sad things happen. what I would like to add is the survival of his child and for goodness sake play off the relationship of Fuko and him. I like that part in the series, as she is one of my favorite characters. I am unsure I'll ever see this, but would have been nice if that were the case. Would have loved it even more seeing that alternate continue forward...

Anyway this is a good movie, as I like things pretty simple with the complexity hidden within. If you want to get this keep in mind that it is more like getting a compact version of the series. Which is better? That depends on how long you want to watch em' I own them all so far and enjoyed all of them. Makes for a quick movie night with something I love so much.:)
