On the 12th day of Christmas, my anime gave to meâ€¦
12 Liters of Tears.
Maybe not 12 liters, but Clannad did bring out the most tears compared to any other anime I’ve watched this year. It took me a few episodes to get hooked into Clannad. Even though I initially found Fuko to be nothing but annoying, it was she who eventually tugged the corners of my heart and pulled me into the series.
Of course, Clannad is more than just tears of sadness. There are also plenty of tears from joy (and laughter) as well. While the tears of laughter produced from Clannad are nowhere near the level which Minami-ke has brought out, it’s still a fairly decent amount which adds significantly to the tear-pool. Kotomi’s arc has been hilarious so far.
With that, the 12 days are over and in a few more minutes, Christmas would be over on this side of the world as well. Before the clock chimes 12, I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Whether or not you celebrate it (I don’t), it’s still a great holiday for everyone to enjoy and it’s never a bad idea to give some presents to the people who are close to you.
