I came to this anime with an open mind. I thought that clannad was ok, and i don't think i let the glowing super mega hype train of recommendations create unrealistic expectations. Yet, it seems almost like i saw a different series than everyone else did.
The story continues in the graduation year with akki baseball,violence directed at Sunohara,animal to human magic that reminds me of kanon, you know, the usual. The progression of the relationship between Nagisa, and Tomoya progresses fairly uneventfully.
Ehh. Usually i try to have a nice flowing entertaining review, but that isn't happening this time. So i'll just jump directly to criticism, and promise that the next anime review will be in the same vein as previous ones.
I could probably write a book about all the problems i have with this series.
Side stories:Filler, poor implementation
The magic: Made me realize that any drama would not have any consequences in the end. Which deflated all the drama.
Story progression: Every plot development i can think of came after they had dropped several obvious hints about exactly what they were doing next.
Relationship progression: The physical relationship development between Nagisa, and Tomoya jumped from new couple to normal married couple in a nanosecond.
In the end it all comes off as very sloppy, and uninspired .
