Kanon is one of my favourite anime series and the only thing that i can say is better than Air at, is that it has more time for the developments of each character and for the audience to know them intimately rather than the fast-paced drama in every episode of Air though the episodes in Kanon never got boring.
The story and presentation was also straightforward and easily understood by watchers. I gotta say the funny bits were very well placed indeed. I enjoyed this anime immensely and loved the happy but gentle ending which was very appropriate and unexpected after watching Air (i thought sad endings were the producer's style, guess i was wrong).
It´s the 3rd and last of my favs! Kanon is a story of a boy (Yuuichi) that comes back to his home town after several
years but he forgot his past in that town! There are 5 girls that have sad storys where Yuuichi is somehow involved and
There are five girls in the story :
Ayu carries a winged-backpack, loves to eat taiyaki, and often says her "Ugū" catchphrase! XD
Nayuki is Yuichi's cousin, and has the super cute problem with sleeping in, and is almost imposible to get up in the morning.
Makoto lost nearly all of her memories! She does remember is her name, and that she holds a ( super funny) grudge against Yuichi XP
Shiori is a girl that never attends class due to an illness she has had since birth. She is usually a cheerful girl who wants her sister to acknowledge her most of all. ;( ( saaad and cuuute)
Mai is a silent girl who initially is cold to Yuichi and others, doesn´t have many friends. She spends her nights at the school slaying demons! ( Coool!)
My fav girl is Ayu she is 17 like him but shes small and looks like a kindergarden kid! She is crazy funny and loves tayaki ! Uguu! XD
Well basically all the girls are so funny that they are to die for waching !
It´s also the "Air" and "Clannad" stile of fantasy and supernatural but it´s really sad too!
Kanon is beautiful in lots of ways :) LOVE IT! X)
My final thoughts on Kanon (2006) :
My first Key anime was Clannad, and I have watched Angel Beats!, so I was expecting both tears and laughter along with a large array of emotions and interesting characters. I wasn't disappointed at all; it's one of the best things I've watched, and I would watch Kanon again anytime.
I watched the dub. It was hilarious! I like Yuichi, but Ayu is seriously annoying and Makoto is a huge freakin brat and a pain in the butt, it's kinda hard for me to form any real smypathy for her past all of her aggrvating tendencies. I mean what she did to the little kitten that she and Yuichi found was insane and so messed up! I mean who the hell drops a kitten off a freakin' bridge?! Akiko is a very kind woman and I like her, but I think she's a bit too kind. So it's nice to see when she does put her foot down. Mai was alright.minayuri rated 10.00:
My favorite of the Key series, although I think either Nayuki or Mai should've been the lead girl, the lead girl Ayu was too childish for my tastes to where I could support the Yuuichi x Ayu pairing, but she was endearing nonetheless. I also feel that this is the best of Key's works by far(the 2006 KyoAni version + the original VN), with its' broad and various character types, masterful storytelling, and how it challenges the characters to deal with the hardships of life, such as rejection, problems within family relationships, tragic and life threatening accidents, etc..., and how they overcome those obstacles, not like its' sister series Clannad that cheapens it by magic balls of light and deus ex machina to resolve tragedies and forced drama. I still believe Kanon deserved a follow-up series, not Clannad.ghost945 rated 8.75:
humorous moments fill the rather serious presentation about relationships. although find it hard to swallow that an unconscious patient would have a separate soul/body wandering out at the streets. otherwise, characters ok. artworks quality high at its time. seiyuu above average. anime has its fair share of touching moments.
