I actually downloaded it , but haven't fully played it. I originally was gonna watch the anime but it got buried under all my anime downloads till I eventually forgot about it. Then I decided to download the VN and again it got buried under all my anime and VN archives that I forgot about it. Now that I remember will give it a playthrough once I get a chance to.

Really enjoyable just like the anime it still brought a tear to my eye, actually I'm pretty sure the VN is more emotional in most cases, varying on which route you go down with, the old art style didn't put me off at first but overall the music and the story did the job in the end.

Watch the anime, remember the story is done by the same person who wrote Angel Beats! and the animation done by the people who did haruhi season 2, trust me you have to watch it, as for the VN you could try and play that after the anime (which I did) plus you get to see how Key makes there visual novels and what angel beats might end up when they release an official visual novel.

Yeah, i also heard from someone else as well that the VN was more emotional than the anime, but i figured i should play the VN before i watch After Story and get too attached to Nagisa

I had already shed tears to Clannad After Story before I even knew of the existence of a game. I checked a lot of sites, succumbed to the will of mankind and got the VN. But I never found the will to read it since I had finished After Story just a few months ago from when I got it. So I went through it a little yesterday after reading this post and found it easily addicting. The art style may pale compared to Key's newer works like little Busters and the upcoming Rewrite, but still worthy of praise. I had only read it for a couple of minutes or so and I nearly spit out the water I was drinking, as if in response to a certain character doing the same act. You can never get tired of Key humour. I haven't got to the Nakige part of the VN, but I have high expectations of it.

Usually if you read a VN before the anime, the anime doesn't seem all that good. If you watch the anime first, the VN may seem a little boring unless you read it a long time after watching the anime. My choice would be to watch the anime first, then read the VN after a certain period of time has passed and you have forgotten a lot of the anime content. For me it took a year though. Well, this is just my personal opinion, so do it however you like.

Really? Including the extraction of the voice files and english patch, Clannad was ready within the hour. And my computer sucks as it is too.

A number of illegal downloaders we have here, eh? XD

I don't know about the VN since I haven't completed it, but I can say for sure that the anime is great. If I were to choose between saving my country's Prime Minister or a Clannad DVD, I'd...save the Prime Minister. Well, I guess that's the most logical choice...oh, forget I said anything. No matter what, the anime is great and definitely worth getting. You can get them for free from Eclipse and Static-Subs. Sure it's licensed, but who cares? Well, a lot of parties...

...just get the anime if you can.

That's good to hear. I have the Clannad series burned in DVD and saved in 4GB USB Flash Drives (or whatever its called). I also have the Clannad DVD from my country...i think my country has some licensing problems, though. They completely ripped off from Eclipse and Static-Subs. Even the karaoke. The same can be said for Index.

Anyway, back to the topic. Does anyone know whether there's a complete English Patch for Clannad out there? I only got to the second day and already Nagisa's name became 'girl' in japanese (onna no ko) or Nagisa in kanji. Its a little weird.

That would surely help. Thanks in advance. I hope the save files are still compatible, though. I don't want to have to click through Misae's route again. Rather, I don't want to slowly click through any character route that I finished.

...well, it woudn't kill me, and I'll definitely enjoy the other routes more without occasional japanese words popping out. I have plenty of time during the holidays anyway.

I had trouble installing clannad a while back, you had to do something like change the region settings to japan or something around those lines before or after you install the game and patch, then it should work. (sorry I installed it a long time ago so it's all to confusing for me)

It was pretty simple for me as I got Clannad after Symphonic Rain. I spent a whole day trying to figure it out and it turned out that re-installing it after setting a few things to Japanese would enable me to play it with the English patch and voice intact. I never bothered to change the settings back to English, so I installed Clannad and Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo quite easily.

As for the patch, there were several kanji letters that popped up, most notably when Sunohara was flying. There were also some mistakes here and there. It was a little irritating since I reached the climax of the arc, and that one sentence denied everything that happened before. Oh, well. It is hard to translate stuff, so I should be grateful.

Here you go. srry i couldn't upload it in one folder, megaupload has an upload cap of 1GB. just combine the 2 folders and move all the numbered folders into the KOE folder from part one

Part One: megaupload.com GCEID5K6
Part Two: megaupload.com ACUCEHX6

Geh, that's large. How long will it take to download it with less than 1.2 KB per second......okay, let's see. The total size of the two files add up to approximately 1,093,720 KB...? My current Winzip file with English translation patch and voice files is 1,119,513 KB...

Erm...somehow it doesn't add up. My version of the patch is 0.97 (i think). What version is yours?

Hmm...for my patch there's a few japanese characters popping around sometimes and Nagisa's name undergoes quite a change. I noticed a few mistakes too. Does your version have the same problems?
