Clannad After Story–Episode 22

I guess this just illustrates the difficulty of converting a visual novel into the linear format of an anime. Kyoto Animation did a fine job of this with Kanon 2006, but here it just didn’t work.

I can see why this may have been a great ending in the original game, and why viewers who are familiar with the game may love it. But speaking as someone unfamiliar with the game, trying to evaluate the anime on its own, the ending is pure deus ex machina and feels unsatisfactory.

Which is too bad because the series is beautifully drawn and has some wonderful moments.
