3-9-07 (6:19PM EST)—- CLANNAD Animation / BS-i?
The official website of Japanese sat-broadcaster BS-i reportedly posted some info on a future CLANNAD animation broadcast about a day ago. The mention was pulled shortly thereafter, leaving many to speculate on what this means. The only existing CLANNAD animation currently known is the animated film which is due way out towards the end of this year. Logically, that would mean a DVD release 4 months + after a healthy theatrical run and an eventual TV broadcast sometime into 2008. A bit premature for a TV network web posting now? Could a seperate TV series also be in the works? The CLANNAD film is going to get a major announcement at the Tokyo Anime Fair occuring at the end of this month. All bets are if something is brewing it will be announced then.
So after the Summer of AIR and Winter of Kanon, will we be getting the Autumn of CLANNAD? I would sure hope so. But it is worrisome on who will be chosen to animate it…. it’s a bit too early to put all bets on KyoAni.
Also, not forgetting…
