About This Game

Story

After the death of his mother, Tomoya Okazaki—a guarded delinquent student at Hikarizaka High School—struggles to not only make sense of the abusive relationship he has with his alcoholic father, but also find meaning in his life. While on his way to class one morning, he meets a mystifying girl named Nagisa. She is a delinquent like him, but only because she is repeating her senior year, unlike the perpetually tardy Okazaki. From their brief encounter, Nagisa decides they should be friends, and enlists Tomoya's help to revive the school drama club. Not being busy in any way, he decides to join in. Along the way, the two make friends with many other students and try to find both solace and belonging in their endeavors.

So, I'm one of the guys who put off Clannad for years since the character art just didn't look up to par with what I'm used to. I judged the VN by it's cover hard, thinking it was a reflection on the quality of the work as a whole.

I was completely wrong.

Important, is the word I would use to describe Clannad. Clannad is now my keystone for all VN's that focus on story as their selling point. This story impacted me as a person. I feel like I've grown.

Just buy it, read it, and experience it. Play all of the stories to completion and leave nothing behind. And after you're done, go watch the anime. Just... please experience what Clannad can do for you.

Beofre i start the reivew i want to ask you if you want me to take you to place in town where wishes come true?

ok with that out of the way - i love clannad so much i have the anime on dvd and backed the kickstater for about $200 and own pictures, cds, t-shirts and much more from this and many other key art franchises

so with that noted i will (spolier free as best as i can) say that this was the first and still best visual novel that got me into the world of anime - i mean sure i'd watch things like pokemon but that was just a cartoon back in the day for me

In this visual novel you play as tomoya - a boy who's mothers died and lives with his father who he does not get along with and then he meets nagisa

with that over 50+ hours many different roustes and more than 20+ different people to talk and go about life with and yes this is sad - very very sad

it is a modern day work of art - but to make sure it's for you go watch the anime first (i did not as i didn't know it had one when i downloaded it before - about 3-4 years ago)

this is a must own for any visual novel/anime fan

+ great music
+ many choices that matter to make - to make you feel in control
+ great characters
+ different routes
+ long 50+ hour game time - well worth the money
+ go watch the also great anime version

100/10 worth it and one of my fav games/anime of all time

Clannad will drain you emotionally and kick you while you're down. I've honestly never been hit this hard by any other media.

One of the most emotionally involving stories ever written and something everyone should experience at least once, whether it be through the visual novel or the Kyoto Animation anime adaptation.

No doubt this is an absolute masterpiece. The best VN I've ever played by far. Most of the reviews say "This is so sad you will cry!!" That's just a meme, in reality the game is about 95% lighthearted comedy with meaningful character interactions and choices. It really pays off to play through every route and go through after story. This is something that really emphasizes the importance of family and those around you. It can change your life.

The art might look bad at first but it will grow on you so much. I genuinely can't see it as bad anymore, it looks amazing to me now.

10/10

Clannad is a series i adore very dearly. I watched it back a few years back as an anime, and this year and parts of lasy year i played through this visual novel, and i really really loved it. Even better than the anime. Clannad is an experience that can bring many people to tears, myself included, and really help us appreciate things in life. If you have seen the anime i really reccomend trying the viual novel. The anime nicely adapted alot of this visual novel, though did leave out some extra character devolpement and a few routes. Also After story had alot more to it than the anime. Though both are amazing experiences everyone should experience ^^ (My first review so sorry if it sucks :3)

One of the saddest animes ever produced - ** FYI WATCH THE ANIME FIRST ** - as this is a choose your own ending game, there is many ways to end this visual novel, most of them will end in many feels had.
CGI/music mode is great as an extra reward for completing the different possible paths.

9/10 Well worth the money/time spent.

The single greatest drama ever crafted. I would consider this inspired by a deity more so than any religious text. If you give this an honest chance and don't see the appeal, you probably don't have a soul; sorry, you're missing out on something genuinely special.

I had already gone through this whole dang visual novel prior to owning it on Steam. It made me cry on multiple occasions then.

I started going through the Steam version. I still cried on multiple occasions.
10/10 would cry again.

Before I start, there is a funfact; I can't play any OSU CLANNAD tracks, because I have to start to cry. Lmao, ikr.

So, basically, read the other reviews. There are enough around this place. You know exactly, that the anime was great so this means that this game is also great. Just bought it geez. It doesn't need my review either, because there are just enough around this place. Prepare4OnionJokes my friend. Good luck and have fun in your life!
