Whats up you guys, i just want to get your veiws on both clannad and ef- a tale of memories. Which anime do you think is better? I honestly cant decide which one was better. But creativity wise i would have to say A tale of memories wins a tad bit. What do you guys think?

Not the best place for the topic but...

Clannad (first season) was just a generic harem anime that had some good moments. After Story was brutal emotionally and really well done with powerful moments but the science-fiction element was lacking. They should have explained it more and used more of it to make it feel more like a real part to the story instead of just another rout the story could have gone in. Taking into consideration those things and looking at Clannad as a whole I think EF Memories (and Melodies) beats out Clannad as a better written and well rounded series. I was able to feel more connection with the characters from the EF series than from those in Clannad as well.

EF > Clannad but both are good series worth watching.

If it's After Story Ef doesn't even come close.

There's a reason MAL gave Clannad After Story a 9.16 with 130,000'ish reviewers. It's like the third best anime ever created. Ef a tale of memories may be good, but it doesn't compare to one of the big three...

I stand squarely in the Ef camp. If you enjoy romance that hurts (e.g. White Album 2), then Ef is a perfect fit for you.

I watched them, thinking they were going to be a lot lighter than they were. Well, I was traumatized by "EF: a Tale of Melodies".

how can you say one wins when you haven't seen the other?...

anyways clannad was nothing special for me. i couldn't stand how overly juvenille they made all the girls. they didn't resemble real people at all to me most of the time. it was pretty much the epitome of "moe blob". i tried to watch through afterstory because everyone says its great. but i got bored and dropped it after episode 8 i think. i'll probably pick it up again just to have watched the whole thing. but i really haven't felt compelled to at all.

EF on the other hand was brilliant. amazing art and direction. characters that were fairly well rounded. also it wasn't a harem, and thus all the characters got appropriate development and conclusion by the end of the story.

clannad season one was nothing that intresting. However after story has some very touching moments. There is also the clannad movie if you dont want to watch the whole show. It has a lot of problems and is quite different from the show.

I lump in Clannad with After Story, but for the sake of simplicity I choose After Story as my pick. My emotions were "out of whack" for 2 weeks after finishing it and to this day listening to some of the music I have from the shows cd I still get chills (some of you will know which song I'm referring to) I've never had an anime draw me in like that before...ever.
