Yuichi hasn’t seen his cousin Nayuki in years. Now that he’s back, all knowledge of ever visiting has vanished. He tries to adjust to the vaguely familiar surroundings, but the gaps in his memory haunt him as time grows short. The pieces of the puzzle have appeared – an eerily silent beauty with blazing tresses, the mysterious girl with the winged backpack, and the sword-wielding demon slayer – but it’s up to Yuichi to discover how they fit together.

I've been watching Anime now for a while. Basically I got started because my daughter wanted something else to watch after Teen Titans stopped making new episodes. I like the idea of having cartoons that aren't brainless or devoid of feeling. I have bought a lot that we watch together, but some of the Anime with more complex storylines I thought might be beyond her (She's 10), but she surprised me with getting a lot more about the stories than I would have thought. We watched Shuffle together and she will frequently sit down with me and ask to watch it again. So I started looking for some similar titles and I happened upon Kanon.

Parents:
There is absolutely no fan service in this Anime. (Fan Service means scantily clad scenes put into the show for no other reason than exciting pubescent boys) This is what's called a Shojo Anime, or an anime that is meant for young to teen aged girls, and it shows. Kanon relies more on imagery, storytelling, and dialog to move the story along. No one gets beat up. There is one scene with a hint of blood, but I assure you it's not unnecessary -- it comes as a vital part of the story. I didn't detect any cursing and the situations are not ludicrous. If you're looking for something more actiony, then this is not the title for you.

There's a reason it's called Kanon. It's fully explained within the series but it's a subtle explanation. It's a play on the musical term of a canon. Think row,row, row your boat --it's a repeating melody that gets more complex as you pass each repetition. This happens in the story as well. It's about Yuichi, who had come back to live with his Aunt Akikko and his Cousin Nayuki after 7 years. Yuichi discovers that he has no memory of his last visit 7 years ago.

It's almost impossible to find any reviews of Kanon that refrain from comparing it to the show Air. Now that Funimation has acquired the rights to bring both of these (already similar) shows out just one week apart will likely do little to differentiate one from the other. Having just watched the two series literally back to back, I can attest to the fact that Kanon succeeds in many areas where Air comes short. Yes there are some similarities between the two that will warrant direct comparison throughout my review but in actuality, Kanon is certainly more emotionally taxing in its prose and scope. Well before I get ahead of myself here, let's start at the beginning, shall we?

Released across 4 discs, Funimation is packaging up TBS Animation's Kanon in a complete series box set. The packaging is quite appropriate if slightly mysterious in its rear panel summary. Inside is a pair of beautifully artistic thin packs, each of which contains two discs. The choice of whites and pale blues is subtly appropriate for the oft-snowy setting of the story itself. I may even go on record as saying that the thin pack exterior art is the finest Funimation has released to date. In all the show runs 576 minutes and earns a fairly conservative TV PG rating (no nudity, language, or violence to speak of).

The set, as has been the trend of late, contains virtually no extras to speak of although the language options are thorough (English dub and original Japanese with or without English subtitles).

With stories like this that play out literally as emotionally driven mysteries, I feel it's critical that I don't provide any spoilers while attempting to summarize the plot here.

Kanon is Kyoto Animation's second of three adaptations they have done of Key's visual novels. Kanon (2006) is preceded by Air TV (2005) and followed by Clannad (2007). These three series are not connected, but share some character design aesthetics and the formula of "main male character interacts with various female characters." That said, of the three, Clannad is the only one that can be classified as a harem show.

As this review's title suggests, Kanon is equal parts mystery and drama, with a good dose of comedy thrown in. There are also elements of the supernatural and romance genres present here, however, it's important to remember that Kanon is, primarily, a mystery drama. The reason it's important to remember that is this: I've seen many fans of the more popular anime Clannad (which substitutes the mystery for more of a focus on romance) come to Kanon expecting a similar experience, only to find Kanon lacking because the romantic relationships aren't as fully explored as those in Clannad. Since these people have seen Clannad first, and Kanon is made by the same company and shares many superficial similarities, they naturally try to watch Kanon as if they were watching a different version of Clannad. This doesn't work, because the real strength of Kanon doesn't lie in the romance area. Don't get me wrong; Kanon has romance, and does it well enough, but if you're watching it with the mindset of "this is primarily a romance story" you're going to be disappointed when you compare it to Clannad.

Kanon's strength lies in its mystery. Why can't Yuichi remember his last trip to this snowy town seven years ago? Are the legends of the hill overlooking the town being a magical place true, and if so, to what extent?

Whats the difference between this Kanon 3/30/10 release and Kanon...
The same thing happened with Cowboy Bebop (which was a Bandai license). The "Anime Legends" box set is the same discs as the individual Remix volumes.

You should know that Kanon had a recent BluRay release in Japan, and unlike Samurai Champloo, which couldn't actually be released in... Read More
