People actually thought Clannad was sadder than Anohana? What a bunch of misguided fools.
Only AS was sad in Clannad too
Now I understand, people didn't follow how sad Anohana was due to their great foolishness. Having those close to you simply dying is not sad, watching the effects a dead friend can have and their struggle is sad.
AnoHana was great, right up into the end, where it was pointless.
I watched the movie, though.
Just finished this yesterday.
>that scene when Jintan starts screaming and searching for Menma when he can't see her anymore
I didn't like Anohana.
I went in hoping for a ghost love story, which I'm a real sucker for.
Needless to say I was disappointed.
Both of them are sad until their endings, where they are completely ruined.
I cared about the characters in Clannad, though, and that's what made it sad.
I didn't give a shit that Menma died and Yukiatsu and Anaru were underutilized.
