anime like clannad

If there is one anime that is extremely like Clannad, then that would be – itself! And mind you, it might perhaps be more, because Clannad was just a warm-up for the inspiration and tears that will be shed in Clannad After Story.
Prepare to laugh loads with the light air of things as well as cry with the touch of both happiness and sadness, as the list of anime like Clannad unfolds their touching stories before you.
This anime follows the story of Mirai and Yuuki, two siblings who shall soon experience the horrors brought upon by a magnitude 8.0 earthquake.
Naturally, Clannad: After Story would be "Clannad-like," and since Angel Beats! and Air are by the same studio their inclusion on this list is fully warranted (I did find Air as confusing as it was touching, but Angel Beats! definitely deserves comparison); I was surprised that you left off Kanon, but perhaps you like me have not yet seen it.
But, I’m sure most of you know that by now as you’re already trying to search for anime similar to Clannad at this point in time.

The only anime that comes close to being as good is Kanon 2006 but that's because its the predecessor of Clannad which means you will notice chracters and voices from Clannad in Kanon.
The main reason I’m linking (here’s the main website), though, is that that website is both an encyclopedia and a community, which will make recommendations in the vein of "if you liked this, you might like this." Go there now and start cataloging your burgeoning anime fandom right from the get-go.
Haibane Renmei is a beautiful, peaceful, "slice-of-life" show in a somewhat supernatural world.
Hmm … dunno if Haruhi and Angel Beats fits the bill as much (although I enjoyed both of them a lot) – could be wrong though.
If you are looking for character development and sadness you might try a much older anime: "A Little Princess Sara".
Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya does have some sad moments in though(and the ending theme is beautiful and bittersweet).
….Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya does have some sad moments in though(and the ending theme is beautiful and bittersweet).
Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi is originally the title of one of the light novels of Suzumiya Haruhi fame, and it was made into a movie last year.
After you have seen those, Angel Beats done by Key and P.A Works, might also be a good choice for you.
The English dubbed version is going to premiere at Anime Expo in a few weeks, so it could be on DVD(I think it’s going to be released as a DVD/Blue-Ray combo) in August or September.
Maybe also try White Angel and True Tears? Currently airing Ano Hana also might be your cup of tea.
Attending school only through force of habit, Tomoya one day meets a girl called Furukawa Nagisa; and over time, while helping her to reform the school’s drama club, Tomoya learns to smile and have fun once more.
Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club.
Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn’t take his studies, future, or anything else seriously.
The romantic comedy story featured in Itazura na Kiss involves a high school girl called Kotoko who confesses her for a fellow senior, Naoki.
The anime called Clannad deals with the high school life, trickles of laughter and mushy moments that are bound to bring a tear to your eye while watching the splendid characters portray their roles to the tee.
Just as the name suggests, Lovely Complex is packed with a comical yet romantic storyline that follows the escapades of Risa Koizumi, the tallest girl in the class and Atsushi Ôtani who is on the shorter side when pitted against other guys his age.
The next inclusion in our animes similar to Clannad lineup also has speckles of supernatural elements thrown into the amalgamation as well as oodles of romance and drama.

Not changing this sig until a new Jet Set Radio game or JSRF remakes announced.
yeah, although to be fair i didnt think to look at the cover picture at first, so when i posted my first post i hadnt looked at the pic.
I’m searching for a school type of anime (tragedy, romance and/or semi comedy) much like in real life (not futuristic and fantasy thingies).
I’ve been watching anime for a shettload of time but I only recently got stuck on the school type anime genre like clannad (everything by key~).
I’ve been searching a lot and I seriously can’t find an anime with such depth and real life problems like clannad had.
Also these two they are like a work of art come to life with……well watch them for yourself and some parts are not for the fain of heart with some of the themes/moods getting darker/ more serious along with likewise visual foreshadowing, its like eye candy for your eyes and no it has no futuristic sci fi stuff just good effects.
Just wanted to say what was on my mind =) Anyways… any suggestions for another good anime wood be really good since I finished Clannad now.
I just happen to check out an anime called Clannad not to long ago.
Thread: Looking for Anime like Clannad or Toradora, Romance.
Re: Looking for Anime like Clannad or Toradora, Romance.
Looking for Anime like Clannad or Toradora, Romance.
Hey! i need some advice of some Romance anime like Clannad or Toradora.
I am also not a fan of love stories, romance, tragic stories, school life stories, or of Japanese works in which I had to read the English subtitles, but Clannad was all of this and it blew my mind.
And the best part is, the signs are actually subtitled! I watched the original Clannad on Netflix, and I loved the show, but none of the Japanese text was translated.
It is not as fast-paced as Clannad but instead focuses more on the relationships between the central characters and their lives together after the first series.
Clannad and Clannad: After Story are two of my favorite anime’s.
I was wondering if there is any anime that can be compared to how sad Clannad is? I’ve been searching and watching a lot at sad animes these days, but it seems that I really can’t get as touched as I got from watching Clannad by any of them.
I liked other anime like Elfen Lied, Shuffle, Fruits Basket, Chobits (pretty high on the list).

This anime is the most saddest thing I’ve ever seen… I’m just a 14 year old boy who doesn’t feel anything in heart and never cries just because of some T.V. shows or any dramatic cause I think they’re lame, in fact I’ve never cried since I was 13!.. But this piece of cartoon (in japanese:anime) series almost made me throw my onions away! Whenever I think the emotional part of the series I feel like I’m also about to cry especially when tomoya remembered nagisa from telling ushio about her mom.
Recommendations to watch after this (Similar); Clannad (After Story) Obviously! Anything else by Kyoto Animation, in particular; The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2006 – 2009) 2 series anime, similar school setting but the focus is more on Sci-Fi and comedy, IE more content, less tissues! The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (2010) Film set after the series above, watch the series first or it wont make any sense! Air (2005), Kanon (2006) both single series anime; These are both very similar to Clannad and feature the same highly emotional plot lines.
Structure review; The detail put into character development is second to none, half way through the first series I was highly engaged with the main characters going about their mostly? normal lives, in fact most of the first series seems to be primarily character development with some supernatural elements and a large portion of school / slice of life thrown in.
Story Review – I went into not expecting much as Clannad isn't a series that I'd really watch but a lot of people liked it so I thought I'd check it out.
I highly recommend that you watch Clannad and Clannd After Story but be prepared to feel emotions you have never felt with any other anime or TV series before.
