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.
