I personally found the ending a bit a confusing, as the need for the main character to collect the orbs to bring back his wife and daughter wasn't made clear.


Its a mechanic from the Visual Novel. Basically the orbs happen when the player/Tomoya get a good ening for certain scenes and characters. But in the anime, it is implied that light orbs happen when someone helps someone else achieve happiness, a goodwill karma if you will. And the whole Illusionary World and the Mysterious Girl are both roles created by Ushio and Tomoya's will, or something like that as i havent rewatched the series in years.



Back on topic. I found Clannad AS much better, because i found KEY's approach to the drama much more subtle and built up than Mari Okada's heavy handed and sudden approach to drama.

Clannad-After Story. It brought tears to my eyes, and it really made you think and reflect on your life.

Anohana made me cry alot but I thought Clannad AS was better.

Clannad AS was alot deeper, I'd gotten really attached to Tomoya and Nagisa after seeing them build their life up together from teenagers to young adults only for it to be shattered. Seeing Tomoya going through all that grief was heart wrenching.

The only thing I didn't like about Clannad is that the ending was quite hard to grasp and understand.

Both are really good...
But I'm gonna choose Clannad/ Clannad After Story.
