Now that Little Busters has ended its first season I'm curious to see how it's stacked up together with the other three titles that have been relatively successful adaptations of some of Key's visual novels.

Aside from the Clannad movie and Kanon 2002, I believe that their adaptations had previously all been done by Kyoto Animation. So JC Staff taking on Little Busters is a bit of a change. I think that it turned out pretty well though.

I'm pretty sure that Clannad will win this poll by a large margin, but we'll see.

Clannad Afterstory. It was so tragic. Though, I also really did enjoy Kanon.

I probably shouldn't have even included Clannad in this poll Although last night it was tied with Little Busters so I thought that maybe it would turn into a close race.

Kanon 2006 really deserves more credit than clannad >.>

the family aspect of clannad is what really stole the show but w/e

Clannad (After Story) is my favorite by far, but Kanon (2006) and Air were great too. Little Busters wasn't bad either, but it felt a bit weak though...
Btw. though not on this list (probably because it was a collaborative project and no original Key VN), Angel Beats! would be my 2nd favorite right after Clannad.

I picked 'Air' I just loved the mood and the pacing was just right. A bit melodramatic, but not too much since it also felt so casual with the comedy and adventure aspects. This is my ideal of what all Key/Visual Art's based anime should be.

Visual Art's/Key is a popular company that creates romantic visual novels, so anime based off of them (since they aren't based off a manga or light novel) are commonly referred to as Key anime. A lot of their anime adaptations share many characteristics like supernatural themes in a slice of life setting, theme songs sung by Lia and animation production done by Kyoto Animation (but there are exceptions like Little Busters).

Like I said earlier...Clannad is no surprise :P

But it is interesting to see that Kanon is still beating out Little Busters! If I had to choose between the two it would be a tough call, but I'd probably go with Little Busters. I like Kanon but I think it spends too much focus on exploring alternate routes. And the one that they go with (with the Fuko clone, whatever her name was...) doesn't really feel like it should even be the main route at all. I don't play VN's though so I really don't know how things went in the games.

Honestly, no offense to any Key anime fans, I just simply hate all Key anime.
The characters all seem to have similar personalities for every anime, and it's really hard to not get bored of it.
I have started Key anime, and you have to give me credit for trying, but I have never finished any.

Clannad is definitely my favorite.


But why isn't Angel Beats on the list?
