Kanon

Anyone dig? Undig? Great anime. A little bit depressing but still good. I'm surprised it doesn't have it's own forum here.

I think that Kanon is one of the best mind-f*ck shojou animes in recent years.

I have the whole series, and I have to say that I like how they focus on every characters. It had a nice balance of comdey and drama.

Kanon is one of many anime based on a dating game.
However, unlike the many other titles of this genre, Kanon takes a more serious approach. Henceforth, there are really a lot of moments that are really heart-rendering.

I liked it - even if it is somewhat complex at times

It's like this....

The series starts off with ultra kawaii characters. Characters so nice and sweet that you will become attached to them; that is if their high pitched voices don't annoy you too much.

Then horrible things start happening to these characters. It will break your heart. Then things start getting really strange. As you are confused and wiping tears from your eyes, you then realize that you mind has been seriously f*cked with.

The series also has a real ending as well!

Yeah that would pretty much sum it up.

I hate to bring a dead thread back, but I just finished Kanon, and well... wow. I was watching it until 4am last night and as soon as I got home tonight I continued on. It was one of the best romantic type story lines I've ever seen. I must admit, it didn't seem as dark and depressing as I thought it would be from reading other posts on it.. maybe that's a definate advantage of having the entire series right in front of you when you start, I can't imagine having to wait an entire week or more at the ending of some of those episodes. I'll probably watch the whole thing again by the end of this week. I really wish this had a full 26 episodes to go into even more depth. I'm sorry it's over... on to Koi Kaze next!!

Reports from a festival is that the animation in ep 1 of the remade Kanon is that it was better than AIR OVA (Which is excellent if you haven't seen it). Can it stay that way for 26 eps though....

I'm really looking forward to the new Kanon now. I just started watching AIR TV last night, and the first episode is great. I also started on Koi Kaze, that seems much slower paced, I'll probably go home and watch the rest of AIR TV tonight. Where does the AIR OVA fit in with the TV? Is it sequel or prequel?
