the creators of Kanon and Air (if you liked those
series) you'll love Clannad. It is a heartwarming series that
will make you laugh, cry and feel. It is a beautiful world with
moving story, while most of the time it is comedy romance and drama,
it has serious story and gives hope to dreamers of the future.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfers for both
seasons are as great as anything Sentai has ever issued with color,
detail, depth and in-motion performance that is truly top of the
line, then it only gets better with the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1
lossless mixes that are rare (they usually offer only 2.0 Stereo on
their TV show sets) and they are all so well, clearly and nicely
recorded that they shame theatrical films. The combination is highly
state-of-the-art and everyone needs to experience these just for
playback performance. Extras include clean opening and closing
animation, episode commentary and trailers.
