After watching eps 21, I think all gamers would have a very clear idea what's coming out next. With 1 more eps to the end, what will be the conclusion? What will eps 23 be? What will the OVA said to release at July covers? All these needs an answer...

Just to clarify, I've read several news stating that Clannad will end at 22. Followed by a side story, and ends with the release of the OVA at July. I trust my sources, since they are the real otakus.

So it seems, 22 is the play, and it'll end with Tomoya and Nagisa. 23 is a summer "vacation". Which i believe will emphasize the friendship and family. (Clannad = Family in a foreign language it seems...)

OVA... well, it's a big "?" but i got a gut feeling that After Story arc will appear here, if Clannad TV ends as Tomoya X Nagisa.



What do you guys think? Feel free to argue. These is a speculation thread anyway!

BTW, POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD.

Your sources are correct.

I have to agree on that. But if they go straight to Nagisa & Ushio, without the rest (Akio, Sanae, Fuuko, Yuuchiro and so many else), shd be able to squeeze it nicely. But to bring it to Ushio's end, that'll definetly take 1 hr.

If it were up to me, i would put the entire afterstory as a season 2, that way it won't be that rushed, fans can get more, clannad's popularity will rise further. But.....oh well. Like what you said, 1 hour might be sufficient.

afterstory would take up another season and as much as I love clannad, I dont think that will hapen. I hope the OVA will be a long one that explains a lot. The series is coming to an end soon and I hope it doesn't end like the movie did.

Season 2 would be a blessing for many fans... But... it'll have to see how KyoAni reacts. Seeing Haruhi Season 2 after Clannad is done, I seriously doubt we'll be looking at a season 2 soon... Maybe 2009? And plans for the FMP is also going on....

I'm not particular about who does anime. But this time round, I really ONLy want KyoAni to take up the project if it happens.

I dont think it will. Since that's part of After story arc... So, dont worry, it'll definitely be a happy ending.

But frankly, for all the gamers, dont you think that eps 23... if a little... dangerous...? If you donno what i mean... If i recalled correctly... something happened during Summer in After Story isnt it...?

Technically, episode 23 isn't episode 23. Its just an extra episode. Who knows what it will be about because if its an extra epsiode, it may not deal with the actual events of the TV series. More like a special or something. I hope it does continue the tv series with some closure though.

After today's eps 21, I've a clear idea how 22 is going to flow... But because 23 is outside of the main arc, it's very misleading for me at least.


With that, what else can 23 have? Either, a side story of fun and laughter, OR a glimpse of things to come isnt it?

Graduation, maybe? Tomoya and co say bye bye to Tomoyo and Nagisa, who had to repeat again.

Hmmm, very possible! Tho i hope they change the story a little...

I've realised something just now, the opening showed a glimpse of Ushio running in the field right? What's your take on that?? OVA? If that's the case, then After Story is a high possibility?

Perhaps. And maybe not. Speaking of which, Tomoya never really did profess his love for Nagisa, right? So....OVA could be the first part of afterstory, where Nagisa graduates and lives with tomoya...and continues with season 2

Well, that's a good speculation of things to come.

Tho it'll be nice to have after story animated, since it's like the real conclusion to Clannad. I got a feeling that season 2 isnt going to turn out well. Unless they find ways to have the gangs back together again...



Because fans are actually more attached to Tomoyo's arc more than anyone elses. Why i say so? Becos she get a game, when no one else does... Not even Kyou, my second favorite.

So if season 2 is Nagisa driven... unless something happens with the group, it's going to be rather... sad in the fan pleasing section.

It would'nt be actually a season 2 (if there is one) if they focused on tomoyo after.. After all, its all about Nagisa, and the story would not flow well from season 1. As much as i love tomoyo (second to Ushio), i would not want Tomoyo After to be animated as a 2nd season, i would rather have it as a few episodes of OVA. I would not mind a change in the storyline, seeing how well they joined all the arcs together in the school life portion.

I guess now the biggest question is what the ova is about... I hope KyoAni releases the title after eps 23... At least, let us be prepared for it.

I mean... after 3 months of waiting, and witness After Story, is definitely not a good thing.
