Somebody please tell me why Kyoani fags consider Clannad a "masterpiece".
It's just Kanon with a bunch of filler.
I cried a little during Ayu's arc in the anime and VN, but Clannad did not have much effect on me. I liked Kanon, nicer setting (winter/snow) cuter girls, much lovelier OST. It's straight to the point and you can enjoy it emotionally, but you can step back and see what it is, a schmaltzy romance novel for men with pedophile tendencies, who want to feel like a hero. It's emotional pornography, with decent production values.
Clannad tried to be "more", so it's longer (after story) and has more "comedy". It adds a lot of unnecessary characters.
I still don't understand that alternate dimension robot bullshit. If you can collect enough glowy sparkles you can make your baby come back to life apparently. It's sentimental inane shit and it makes no sense. Oh! Maybe I don't "appreciate it" because I'm not old enough to have a wife or daughter yet, but then again, neither are most Kyoani fags.
>If you can collect enough glowy sparkles you can make your baby come back to life apparently.
Compared to finding a doll being able to suddenly awaken people or basically fix the shit that happened in every single route in the VN.
That scene where Misuzu walks towards her mom and dies in her arms was the most powerful scene in a KEY work I'd ever seen.
I'm sorry, but nothing in Clannad can compare to that one scene.
Clannad is Life.
Agreed, but I do think Clannad was way better than AIR overall
I was more attached to the characters of Clannad than with any of the other KEY works, so their problems, as well as their inane slice of life antics, were more appealing to me. I was able to get emotionally invested more readily and more deeply than with any of the other series, so each individual development was more effective at instilling emotion in me.
If you can't get into the characters, then KEY works won't affect you that much. You'll end up liking the one with your favorite girls/MC/side characters the most.
It's that simple OP.
I loved Clannad and Kanon, but how could anyone like Air? At that point I just wanted the show to end so I could move on to another series.
>let's have a battle of tastes
Fuck you retard. You like Kanon more? Good for you. I prefer Clannad. But I think Kanon was really good too.
The problem is not the topic you brought up. The problem is that you started the whole thing with pointless ranting you dumb negro.
Meh, I liked Clannad but I didn't like how it ended.
>It's sentimental inane shit and it makes no sense
sums it up pretty well.
Get with the times, Clannad and Kanon are both old and busted. It's all about Rewrite now.
Nothing has gotten me as close to crying as Ano hana.
Fuck this bait. Ano hana was stupid.
If you're asking seriously, for me its because of Tomoya. He was very easy to relate to in both his high school and adult life. I'm not sure I've ever connected to a character as strongly.
The light orbs thing basically just come down to "the people of the city" repaying Tomoya for his kindness over the years in a magical way. I know its kind of a stretch, but c'mon, that's not Thst weird by key standards.
Exactly this OP. Why don't you focus on the growth of the characters instead of being retarded.
>schmaltzy romance novel for men with pedophile tendencies
I don't even know what you mean by this. Also
I didn't play the Vn, and thought the glowing balls of light thing was retarded in the anime. Kyo should have just cut that part out our changed it. The rest of the ending was perfect without that.
Let's say they left the ending without the lights. What would have been the message or point? That Tomoya once knew love but now is somehow a better person? It wouldn't make sense since Ushio was dead anyway. It could work if you preferred the ending of the movie.
However, it's because of all the help that Nagisa and Tomoya gave everyone that they were able to get their own wish granted. There was constantly that cycle of being helped and helping. Nagisa's parents helped Tomoya and Tomoya helped Nagisa. You can say the same about the other characters. With the other ending, I feel it loses this meaning more so than the true end.
Key magic is nothing new anyway. The message it sends home is realistic and beautiful IMO.
I think they should have left out the pay with Ushio dying too. I liked everything up until then, but that ending just seemed random.
Then the message "help each other!" would have just went down the drain and it would have just been a simple bittersweet ending (cinsidering Nagisa's death). I wouldn't mind it, but this feels more satisfying even though it's Key magic.
If someone consider Clannad a masterpiece it's not because he is kyoanifag. More often kyoanifags are happy that Kyoani won't make key adaptations anymore because it's not worth their work, even if once it came out decent. I am definitely happy.
Yea that's what I meant when I said >It could work if you preferred the ending of the movie.
Because then, Tomoya would have realized his mistakes and gotten over his depression. But the true end with Nagisa, while unrealistic, was more true to the overall theme.
Because I accepted magic as the a part of the world setting, I was able to accept the way the ended everything.
However what I was secretly hoping for was that instead of Ushio getting sick and magicks, we instead had Ushio remained fine and Tomoya moved on-- moved forward and got together with Ushio's teacher, Kyou. And then maybe gave Ushio a step-sibling as they became a family.
