Reviewing Kyoto Animation's CLANNAD AFTER STORY (2008, Season 2)
Japanimation Station's Kyoto Vacation Episode 5
Welcome to Japanimation Station’s Kyoto Vacation, Season 4 of the anime podcast brought to you by the folks at The Weekly Stuff Podcast. We are here to dive into the wide and wonderful world of anime, and you can subscribe on all platforms at JapanimationStation.Com.
Part 1 of our Kyoto Vacation, ‘Crying is the Key to Happiness,’ comes to a close with Clannad After Story, the second and final season based on the legendary visual novel by Key VisualArts. And after speaking for 3.5 hours about the first season, we somehow go even longer on the second, which follows Tomoya and Nagisa progressing into adulthood and becomes an ever-deeper, richer, and more emotionally impactful experience as it goes along. These are, simply put, some of the finest episodes of anime ever made, from storytelling through all aspects of the production, and it takes a full four-hour podcast to really start sinking our teeth into all of it.
Enjoy! We will be off next week for Thanksgiving, and returning on November 28th for Part 2 of our Kyoto Vacation with our review of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 1 in its original ‘shuffle’ broadcast order!
