CLANNAD ~After Story~ Announced
CLANNAD was one of my favorite anime series this season, and I am glad that they are announcing ~After Story~ for the series. For fans of the original CLANNAD game by Key, the concept of the ~After Story~ isn’t new. It is basically a continuation of the storyline of the selected heroine. Current CLANNAD tv viewers will know which heroine the ~After Story~ will be for, and I am very much looking forward to it, since I thought there was going to be no more of the series.
According to AnimeNewsNetwork:
The May issue (on sale on March 29) of Dengeki G’s Magazine will announce that a Clannad After Story television sequel has been greenlit for production. The staff (including director Tatsuya Ishihara series script editor Fumihiko Shimo) and cast will be largely unchanged from the recently concluded 2007-2008 slice-of-life television series.
The first television series is based on a visual novel franchise from the software developer Key (Air, Kanon). Key is heavily promoting Clannad by collaborating with Gamania Entertainment on that company’s Hiten Online and Holy Beast massively multiplayer online role-playng games (MMORPGs), and Yukiko Sumiyoshi launched a new Clannad ~tomoyo dearest~ manga based on the Tomoyo character last month.
