"EVERYTHING SEEMED LIKE A DREAM...AND EVENTUALLY I FORGOT EVERYTHING"
Tomoya Okazaki is depressed at the prospect of school. His days are spent considering the path which lies ahead of him, the shadow of his vacant alcoholic father constantly looming over his daily void. He meets a group of strange girls at his school, each with unique social problems, and begins to gain perspective on the deep loneliness he feels. When the drama club is established, paranormal turmoil unfolds and hearts are broken...
Clannad deals with the social dynamics of high school and the ennui it fosters, the bruises adolescence leaves on one's psyche and the fear of being forgotten by your peers as time ticks by. Central themes are the importance of family, self esteem and identity amongst the apparent emotional emptiness of society.
Produced By Kyoto Animation (Air, Kanon) and adapted from the virtual novel by Key, Clannad sets a new benchmark for anime, uniting intricately constructed story arcs with an immersive, vivid atmosphere. A dream-like supernatural air converges with a deep-rooted sense of humanity to give Clannad complex emotional impact.
This box set collects the original Clannad series previously released as two parts by Siren Visual - SVE0771 and SVE0778.
"Clannad hits home with sudden and surprisingly effective emotional intensity" - Anime News Network
"Highly recommended. The range of emotions Clannad takes you through is quite daunting. It's charming, cute, hilarious, mysterious, and tragic all at the same time. Few shows are as memorable, and few are this good for this long." - DVD Talk
