CLANNAD ~AFTER STORY~ – Announcement Commercial

Watch the commercial! Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Streaming

As expected, the After Story continuation of CLANNAD was announced today. MOON PHASE broke the news earlier with information from the May edition of Dengeki G’s Magazine, including how the staff and cast will be staying the same, but it wasn’t until after the extra summer episode that we got our first glimpse of the production via a 15-second commercial. As you can see in the screens above, the commercial hinted at more of the illusionary world story and shows a certain new character that many of you probably already know. There’s been no information, however, regarding length or when this will air, though fan speculation has it at 13 episodes and a possible Fall broadcast. A lot of people have told me that the good stuff in CLANNAD is in the After Story, and so while I thought CLANNAD was ultimately average (not great, not horrible), I’m still definitely looking forward to this.

    Does this mean more Tomoyo?

  • March 27, 2008 at 2:54 pmmit

    it’s a great news^_^ indeed that they decided to continue clannad instead of announcing a new series.i have been always a big fan of clannad.

  • March 27, 2008 at 2:57 pmFat Cat Lim

    OH SHI-

    And I thought they would announce the broadcast dates for Haruhi S2. Strange. Oh well, if Clannad is indeed coming this Fall, I wouldn’t really mind either! I loved After Story, and it’s great to see that it’s getting animated so soon.

    Hei > No, not necessarily. In After Story, Tomoyo and the rest of the other girls don’t appear.

  • March 27, 2008 at 2:58 pmKona

    Can’t wait for it.:D

  • March 27, 2008 at 2:58 pmosako

    …so they’re doing more clannad instead of starting haruhi season 2 or uh what?

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:02 pmkiryuu


    looking forward to it if there is as much extra stuff as people say for clannad ^^

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:04 pmkiryuu

    hm.. wonder if Tomoyo is holding:

    See? I don’t think KyoAni’s a company to leave a story unended. I always knew they were going to anime the After Story and I knew it! Everyone’s happy now, right? I’m not being mean or anything. I’m very happy about this. That little girl looks so cute! She resembles me a little when I was young.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:13 pmqwertypoiuy

    arent you going to make a preview for the upcoming season ?

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:20 pmyanipheonu

    It was pretty average wasn’t it?

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:21 pmInvy-2pointOh

    Nice! I am so ready for anohter season! probably gonna be short though.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:23 pmclaudius

    When are they going to make Full Metal Panic Fumoffu After Story?

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:25 pmUnknown Voice

    oh god…here it comes again.. the horror >.>

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:28 pmsetsuke

    OH Yea the After Story is really going to be animated, just know this a few hour ago too. Now here’s the question, will a long OVA or really a full 13 episode anime but a 13/12 anime will be kind of long unless they intend to have the full story of that illusionary world too.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:29 pmHudson

    Hooray my Clannad and I still like lolis.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:31 pmsealouse

    This is great. I’m assuming this means I don’t have to watch the movie now.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:32 pmBizarre

    Looks like this is going to be a sequel of Clannad… ANN.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:35 pmShinn Agami

    So my manly tears would have to wait that long?


  • March 27, 2008 at 3:35 pmshh227

    @Fat Cat Lim
    I was thinking the same too that it might be Haruhi 2.

    I know when Clannad first came everyone was saying that it needed to be 52 episodes due to the length of the actual story and 22. The show had been good except for the last couple of episodes which have had me scratching my head…

    However now kyoto animations have pulled out the bag Clannad ~After story which could serve justice in the clannad series.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:35 pmSyaoran Li

    Hell yah! more Clannad to come…

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:36 pmMichael Harden

    Average? Certainly not ;x CLANNAD was the best show of Fall 2007. Love it like no other ;p

    But yeah. I am psyched for this. I was really hoping a second season would be animated. While I loved the way the first season ended, it had almost no closure at all, so I can’t wait for this.

    I hope it’s more than 13 episodes though =( 24 would be fantastic ;]

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:47 pmpanzerfan

    Don’t get your fapping hopes up too high with Clannad Afterstory. The story that is to follow isn’t typical in anime. Here is a tearjerker that rivals movie drama or novels, the type that has businessmen weeping while reading on the bullet train. The scope is wider than that of Tomoyo After. To me, it’s more for those of us that are seeing friends getting married and starting out with their own family…

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:50 pmkarasu

    the movie was more like the bad end, hopefully, with Kyoani’s refusal to include all the more sadistic stuff in the original season, it’d mean they’ll do the good end instead. Besides, the opening showed that last scene in After Story.

  • March 27, 2008 at 3:58 pmSue

    crap i watched that movie version and it sucked so bad i wish i didnt see it. This after story will be waay better than the movie but really i wish i didnt see that movie cause i already know whats going to happen >

  • March 27, 2008 at 4:03 pmDarkReign

    man, i really hope this aint gonna end like the movie.

  • March 27, 2008 at 4:10 pmKaito

    omg! is that little Tomo?

  • March 27, 2008 at 4:39 pmAndrew


    This is badass!

  • March 27, 2008 at 4:57 pmstrider87

    Well the After Story For the Game is at heartbreaking but ends beautifully so hopefully the stick with Nagisas After Story from the Game.

  • March 27, 2008 at 5:11 pmShinForNoe!

    yay !!! ive never played the visual novel(although id love to!)so hopefully it wud cover for all of the visual novels story ! and aww mini nagisa!

  • March 27, 2008 at 5:14 pmDukeTheGold

    Awesome! I was extremely disappointed in Clannad’s ending. Hopefully the After Story will make up for it!

  • March 27, 2008 at 5:31 pmshh227

    The After story is where the real story starts! It going to be so sad though:(

  • March 27, 2008 at 6:04 pmCytex

    Hah, Clannad was average at best. At least it’s nowhere near the level of awesomeness that was Kanon ’06.

    I’ll stick to the visual novel, kthx.

  • March 27, 2008 at 6:21 pmavex|mode

    I told you so regarding this.

  • March 27, 2008 at 6:47 pmxternalx

    Banzi!! The Clannad After Story really really looking forward…

  • March 27, 2008 at 7:01 pmKato

    After story is great!!!

  • March 27, 2008 at 8:14 pmMyssa Rei

    Ushio! T_T

    But, darn, this was expected, but this came far too soon. Less hope for a the Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi or Full Metal Panic for Fall. Tch.

    Still… This will definitely bring the series closure, though it might turn fans of the other characters off as, except for Sunohara, Kyou, and Ryou, the others barely get even a passing mention in After Story (well, there is Tomoyo in the movie). I have to wonder what path KyoAni will take for this one, as Show Spoiler ▼


  • March 27, 2008 at 8:28 pmwolfx

    Meh….continue with Haruhi 2 already. I think watching someone’s death will be too heart breaking for me. :(

  • March 27, 2008 at 8:29 pmhinode

    Myssa, you’re forgetting about Show Spoiler ▼

  • March 27, 2008 at 10:24 pmdarkkodiak

    All I can say is YAY!!! Finally the real story begins and I love the after story portion the most since Tomoya and Nagisa’s relationship shines and the comedy is even better(for those who played the VN knows hehe). I for one hope they go with the true ending route just because I enjoyed that route a ton more.

  • March 27, 2008 at 11:11 pmFlameStrike

    Alright!!!!!!!!!! More Clannad is going to be awesome! I don’t know why everyone complained about how Clannad’s ending didn’t have enough closure, compare it to say Code Geass’ ending that ENDED THE FIRST SEASON IN THE MIDDLE OF A FRIKKEN CLIFF HANGER! Lol but no one complains there. Oh well I can’t wait to see Nagisa, Tomoya, and Ushio. Some people think Clannad is average but for me it was the most enjoyable show this season. I hope the rabid Kyou fans won’t get too annoying and not be able to see the awesomeness that is Nagisa x Tomoya.

  • March 27, 2008 at 11:25 pmraimaru2880

    the little girl is Ushio… the fruit of Tomoya and Nagisa’s love after they got married… based on the movie, Nagisa dies after giving birth to Ushio and this will cause Tomoya to be much like his father, so he ended up leaving his daughter with Akiyo and Sanae. Then Ushio is later diagnosed to have the same illness as Nagisa, which causes Tomoya to finally take responsibility of Ushio.


  • March 28, 2008 at 2:26 amxternalx

    Guys, do you agree if Kyoto Animation come out new Clannad side story for Tomoyo After animtion also pretty nice story.

    Will like to support this series?

  • March 28, 2008 at 7:57 amramiel_salbazier

    As expected. Hoping for a eal tearjerker. may it live to my expectations

  • March 28, 2008 at 8:08 ammiharuyuki

    i hope it doesn’t become to angsty… the movie version wasn’t that great though.

  • March 28, 2008 at 9:24 amSilent Minstrel

    It’s here! It’s here! Folks, have faith in KyoAni. They won’t ruin it like Toei did.

  • March 28, 2008 at 10:20 amYukiruchan

    Wonder why they couldn’t just continue it immediately?
    Waiting sucks!

    Spoiler for ending
    Show Spoiler ▼

  • March 28, 2008 at 10:38 amfuro hori

  • March 28, 2008 at 10:55 amsteelman

    The only way they can bring closure to the story (by explaining wha the illusionary world is and what the girl is doing) is by showing the bad ending first and THEN rewind everything to the good ending. After all Show Spoiler ▼

    so they could very well go down that route (they did something similar for Air).

    seems like it’s Show Spoiler ▼

    so I guess they will indeed show the bad ending.

  • March 28, 2008 at 6:21 pmwere

    probably they will cover the ‘bad end’ since the so called ‘true end’ in the game doesn’t have much to animate, i might not watch (just might) this series thou not quite fan of sad ending.

  • March 28, 2008 at 6:38 pmMizu

    @Hei: What has this to do with Tomoyo, this is all about Tomoya, Nagisa and Ushio.

    Besides, can’t wait for this xD

  • March 28, 2008 at 6:58 pmjadman

    from the pics it very well could be picking up from where the movie left off, a father daughter relationship type of love story.

  • March 28, 2008 at 7:21 pmiamandragon

    Just when I thought KyoAni have completely ruined CLANNAD, they’re making AS! Wow!
    How good is After Story? Let’s put it this way: CLANNAD without After Story is utter rubbish compared to CLANNAD with After Story(again, only when compared with each other. CLANNAD is still superior than many other stories in the ACG industry)

  • March 29, 2008 at 3:21 amReiku Tohno

    the only thing I’m dissapointed at is how the heck am I going to access that…it’s pretty much very hard to find stores or any access here in my country,,,

  • March 29, 2008 at 4:30 amSakuraAyanami

    oh god please,please let it have the good ending please!!! I dont think i could stand another bad ending like in the movie

    I hope this makes the Clannad series better.

  • March 29, 2008 at 9:43 ammay08

    so the after sotyr is diff from the OVA

  • March 29, 2008 at 2:59 pmJoe Sargent

    Clannad without the after story is the same as Kanon without Ayu wake up! I sincerily hope that it will be a twelve or thirteen episodes series, but anyway that’s good news! And in the after story centers mainly around Nagisa and the little girl, and the only girl that will certainly appear is Kyou.

  • March 30, 2008 at 6:48 pmWizy

    Well as I’ve heard it’s either going to have sad ending, very sad ending or very very sad ending… even tho I’m in love with these series, I’d love it to have happy ending ;_;

    Not something like Show Spoiler ▼

  • March 31, 2008 at 8:31 pmLetsMakeMiracles

    This question might be impossible to answer but still, anyone(who have seen the movie) know
    if the movie spoils alot of “Clannad ~After Story~ cuz if it does i find it pretty pointless to release the movie this early, I’ve just seen the movie and i hope it doesn’t ruin too much >_

  • April 1, 2008 at 11:05 pmanimeniac

    More Tomoyo? no i dont think so…it is a mere continuation of Nagisa and Tomoya’s Love Life…that’s why it is called after story…

  • April 4, 2008 at 10:22 amMikapon

    Hmm, I wonder if they’re going to do both endings. That’ll be great, hopefully…

    Might be tough to get all the contradictions sorted out, but I’m sure KyoAni can pull it off. :)

    Having watched the movie yesterday, Show Spoiler ▼

    I really don’t know if I can handle watching After Story, especially since Show Spoiler ▼

    resulting in the tragic ending of After Story.

    I’ll probably just follow the blog posts here and wait to see what the ending is before watching. It’ll spoil any surprises, but frankly I am in no mood for shock depressions (I’m too sensitive for my own good, it was a freaking animated movie!!!)
