Mysterious CLANNAD Announcement

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…

    KyoAni won’t be able to do CLANNAD until 2008 earliest. ^^; No way in 2007 unless they break their work-code of one series at any one time. If I have to pick an alternate studio, I would want JC Staff. :)

    Interesting developments. Hopefully we get some more info soon since it’s all too vague at the moment. >_

    dunno why but when i see JC staff trying to do a key game, it all fails…….

    But if KyoAni were to do it, it would be insanely nice!

    I heard somewhere that Toei was doing it (didn’t they do the AIR movie?)

    Well, KyoAni could conceivably do it in fall. Although that would probably mean we wouldn’t get a Haruhi second season in 2007 (this has never been confirmed).

    After their praiseworthy treatment of Kanon and AIR, it would be a bit of a let down if Key trusted their other games to anyone else, I guess. But then, no Haruhi 2 wouldn’t be cool either.

    It has to be KeyAni, of course. But it won’t be this year.

    Anything is possible, you need only a strong mind and a good schedule.
