A popular visual novel/anime made by Key and animated by Kyoto Animation.

Clannad mostly takes place in a large high school the main cast attends. Throughout the story we get glimpses into an Illusionary World where nothing but a young girl lives, since nothing is born or dies in this world, she makes a friend by putting together pieces of junk to make a body. The remaining half of the story takes place in the same city, after the conclusion of the first half.. The story mainly revolves round the idea of family and hence the name Clannad which in Irish means family. All of the main characters have no or little family in which to bond with and yet their families play large parts in the story. It is not hard to see where the strong mythology come from if you examine the game closely. It has a strong Celtic ideal mixed with in a Japanesse back round. Very refreshing game and mangas. 
Clanned was plagued by a number of release problems first set for release in 2001, but was not actually released until April 2004 and was followed by another version in August of the same year. At first it was released on PC and then later it was released by Sony and Microsoft. Both games where created by Key Software.
