A strange visitor with an unexpected message enters to change Kotomi's life forever, Youhei's younger sister Mei arrives to turn everything upside down, and the odd Yukine reveals that she knows a bit more about the magic that surrounds the town than everyone else...almost too much, in fact! But, most magical of all, is the relationship that is slowly growing between Tomoya and Nagisa. Will they realize what's happening in time? Find out in the second spellbinding collection of Clannad!|

Customer Reviews of Clannad-Collection 2
This series is an excellent buy. If you're unsure of it but watch a bunch of anime then I'd say to give it a try at least. I wasn't sure when I first saw it but it quickly grew on me as one of my favorites. From making you roll around laughing to inducing tears, this series is full of all kinds of emotional twists. Upon first glimpse, I thought it was just another Anime involving high school students, but the more I watched, the more I realized how much of a masterpiece this was. Definitely check it out. UPDATE: I just purchased the blu-ray Clannad Collection and as usual with this series, I'm very pleased. It has both English and Japanese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 with this set. The audio listed on the product description with Amazon shows it as Japanese Audio and doesn't list English, but if you examine the screenshots of the back of the case, in the lower left hand part of it shows both English and Japanese. I will thoroughly enjoy watching this series again in the higher resolution and remain here hoping Sentai Filmworks re-releases After Story for blu-ray sometime soon. Also, another thing about the blu-ray series is the case is much better than the one used for the DVD set. The blu-ray case has all 3 discs seperate instead of stacking each disc on one spindle. Much easier and safer for the disc with the blu-ray collection.
This set contains the second twelve episodes of the Clannad series, & has the same excellent art, music and story, and the same almost total lack of DVD extras as the first set. You get clean opening and closings, and some series previews, but the same previews as were on other Sentai Film works disks I have purchased. Do not let the lack of extras stop u from enjoying this fine series.
I was was satisfied with Tomoya using Sunohara in his cruel pranks. But, then there are these beautiful girls, not in looks although, they are pretty as well. Then, the story unfolds into a tear jerker at times and a gut buster on the others. You start to find that these people, high schoolers are dealing with some mature issues that some adult wouldn't be able to deal with. There is a moral like storyline and inner strength that pours out of each like Tomoya encounters including himself.
