Collection of Clannad Best Pictures
A student who doesn’t even attend class, his family relationship is almost non-existent, and he is dedicated to wasting time with his best friend, Sunohara.
Of course, this changes when he meets Nagisa, another student who had to repeat a grade due to her illness.
It is the union of both characters that makes them decide to improve their lives, mutual support, help for each other.
From here on, they both start to get to know people and each other’s feelings. The central theme of Clannad does not love but family.
Throughout the series, we get to know every one of the characters and their family problems.
The characters are not flat, they all have feelings, and their evolution and maturity are shown as the anime progresses.
The changes that each character undergoes when something important happens to them are observed.
In addition to the main plot, there is an intercalated story that explains the events in a separate world.
It is a world where only a little girl and a robot are found, in an isolated, cold, lonely, and full of lights planet.
The meaning of this intercalary story is not revealed until the last episode of the second season.
And, although it may seem somewhat insignificant, this story has more importance than it may appear.
In this world, the girl creates a robot out of objects she finds not to be alone.
The robot is the only friend to defend and protect her from anything that might harm her.
The viewer will often be dumbfounded by not understanding what this story means, but I already warned that it is one of the most important things for the end of the anime.
The anime is divided into two seasons. The first season is where we get to know the characters the most, and their story is shown, while at the same time, we see the maturing of the characters.
The second season, known as Clannad After Story, shows the continuation of the story based on Nagisa and Tomoya’s main plot, adding Ushio to the anime.
All the elements that appear in the series have a symbolic meaning, from the cherry trees at the beginning of the series to the girl’s lights and the robot’s world.
Including the ending of the series, in which we are taught the large Dango family, represents Nagisa and Tomoya’s family.
