Clannad is a Visual Novel developed by Key. It is the third developed game that released in April 2004 for Windows. The game received high sales and critical acclaim in Japan, with the regular edition selling over 100,000 copies in 2004. The game has then received a light novel, and three manga adaptations. The game also received an animated film from Toei Animation, who also produced the animated films for Key’s other VNs (Kanon, Air). A TV anime was produced by Kyoto Animation that aired in 2007, and was followed up by a second season in 2008 titled Clannad ~After Story~.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Okazaki Tomoya is a delinquent who finds life dull and believes he’ll never amount to anything. Along with his friend Sunohara, he skips school and plans to waste his high school days away.
One day while walking to school, Tomoya passes a young girl muttering quietly to herself. Without warning she exclaims “Anpan!” (a popular Japanese food) which catches Tomoya’s attention. He soon discovers the girl’s name is Furukawa Nagisa and that she exclaims things she likes in order to motivate herself. Nagisa claims they are now friends, but Tomoya walks away passing the encounter off as nothing.
However, Tomoya finds he is noticing Nagisa more and more around school. Eventually he concedes and befriends her. Tomoya learns Nagisa has been held back a year due to a severe illness and that her dream is to revive the school’s drama club. Claiming he has nothing better to do, he decides to help her achieve this goal along with the help of four other girls.
Clannad will be out on Steam on November 24th. There has been no price set for the game so far.
