So I'm a real sucker for Kanon. For me it ignited an interest in watching other animes of the same type, but I can't find any that are like it. Why is Kanon so damn good?
cuz you are a lonely person anon
Not enough H-scenes :(
Because you have no taste.
I enjoyed Kanon and I'm also a Keyfag, but I have to sage this thread regardless because it's a Key-related thread.
With that said, Ahaha~ is the reason Kanon is so damn good.
I think what I'm really looking for is an anime that does the slice of life + sad scenes combo excellently. Most animes in this genre are too sad at the peak of the arcs. Likewise most eschew slice of life for over the top, prat-falling style comedy.
I hated Kanon, but I still watched it all.
Mai's arc was the only good part.
*should be "aren't too sad".
FUCK YEAH NAYUKI
Because I can I've vowed to play the visual novels of animu like this instead of watching the anime. This because in a visual novel you can to some extent avoid the girls that annoy you and you get to see moar of the ones you like.
I also hated Kanon. The only arc that was interesting was Shiori's, but it was still akward.
Nayuki is love.
The only reason I watched Kanon.
Makoto was the best girl. Every time I see a fox, I think of her. ;_;
Bah. So much hate for Kanon. Sayuri just realized how cruel you guys are.
If school life/romance type of shows don't do it for you, then I can understand the hate. However compared to the other animes in the genre Kanon is gold.
It's like: Ordinary scene from Love Hina - Keitaro touched a boob, time to punch him to the moon! Ordinary scene from Kanon - fun, relaxed conversations, a dash of moe characterization and expertly layered foreshadowing.
Add in awesome piano centered BGM and it becomes fuckwin
>a dash of moe
lololol, the whole thing is basically the definition of moe. all the characters are in the "helpless" moe category.
Also add in the emotional scenes. So many tears t.t
Okay Okay, it's very moe. I'll give you that. But the scenes are very relaxed and don't use that anime cliche of over the top character reactions to moe. Like, Yuuichi is never reacts lustfully to the moe characterizations: Ayu talks about Taiyaki and Yuuichi'll make a joke about planning her next crime. Mai is very quiet, and Yuuichi has fun trying to get her to speak. And so forth.
I have Nayuki as a character in my mugen, she can kick giant energy blasts.... makes sense
Get Eternal Fighter Zero if you don't already have it.
bump for an anime recommendation that I can use instead of rewatching Kanon for the idontknowhowmany-th time.
Air and Clannad?
also Kanon 2002, lulz.
Honey and Clover.
Seen 'em all naturally.
