CLANNAD Quotes & Screenshots

Use this thread to share your favourite quotes from Clannad, and help make this thread the definitive collection of Clannad quotes! You can post screenshots or text. Only rule is to avoid catch phrases like “Uguu~”; they’ll be considered spam and you’ll be punished. As a guideline, try to keep the thread in a healthy balance of funny and serious quotes, without drifting too far in one direction. If you come up with a really good quote, I might even include it on the Clannad information page on the main site! What I’m looking for is a quote that’s not necessarily a tagline, not necessarily one everyone remembers, but tells some kind of powerful message, and introduces the story in a nice way. Let’s get started.

Anything from the series can be posted without spoiler tags. Since we will be posting direct quotations of dialogue stated in the series, please note that there can and will be spoilers in this topic.

“No matter how cold and distant people may become, on the inside something warm and precious always remains, something that never changes. To me, that’s what family is like.” - Tomoyo Sakagami

“I hate this town. It’s too filled with memories I’d rather forget. I go to school every day, hang out with my friends, and then I go home. There’s no place I’d rather not go ever again. I wonder if anything will ever change? Will that day ever come?”

“French bread.”
“I don’t understand what you’re saying”
“That’s my line.”
~ Nagisa Furukawa and Tomoya Okazaki

I’m disappointed by the lack of quotes .-. CLANNAD had many wonderful quotes in it.

"Meeting you was the best thing that ever happened to me. You made me so happy." ~ Tomoya Okazaki to Nagisa Furukawa

I’m pretty sure it was Nagisa who said that not Tomoya but anyways…

“Would you like me to take you to the place in this city where wishes come true?” ~ Nagisa Furukawa

“If you feel like crying you shouldn’t hold back your tears. You should let it all out while you still can… because when you get bigger sometimes you can’t cry even if you have something to cry about.” ~ Tomoya Okazaki

“Daddy, is it all right not to hold it in anymore? Sanae-san told me the places I can cry are in the bathroom… and in Daddy’s arms.” ~ Ushio Okazaki

“Nagisa, I finally found it. Something only I can protect. And it was right here all this time.” ~ Tomoya Okazaki

and lets finish with a happy note
“LOVE!” ~ Yoshino Yuusuke

It’s time for the common route screenshot dump!

–Baseball Route Spoilers–

–Sunohara Ending Spoilers–

–Jet Saito Spoilers–

Next up, Misae Route!




Is Sunohara’s name in Japanese just so it can fit in the box? At least everyone can see how he’s name looks like in Japanese now…

And also a quote (Which I don’t have a screenshoot of)
Yomoya: “She’s good at atheletics. I know that much.”
Sunohara: “Yeah, I will admit that her boobs are big.”

I think Tomoyo is on to something really big here. :wink:

Just got an awesome Yoshino line. This could be the tag line for CLANNAD.
This scene was fucking cool.

Okay, time for the Kotomi route screenshots! I grabbed a lot from this route.

Whew, that was a lot. Amazing route.

I forgot to up my screencaps on twitter, so to Kaza they go~

This is definitely a classic

For such a bitchy person, Kyou’s interests are pretty girly


My god what a beautiful bastard.
