I was just wondering what is the most significant reason why animes such as clannad, 5 centimeters per second and Kanon have such a sad tone to them

...Just to be clear, are you asking for more perspective, or for opinions?

reason it saddens us is because we become so attached to the characters if we just watched the episode of tomoya talking to uschio about nagias on the train we would not feel anything. its the bond we create with the characters that makes us sad when bad stuff happens a very good anime for this is samurai x i think it is im not sure animekami showed me it. but in 4 episodes it manages to make you emotionally attached and in the end you want to cry

... And is this about why some anime are sad, or why some people make sad anime?

I can read the question both ways and I'm not sure which was intended.
