Anime Review: Clannad: On the Hillside Where the Cherry Blossoms Flutter(1.01)

           Clannad: On the Hillside Where the Cherry Blossoms Flutter(1.01)Review
This episode is about how a delinquent student Tomoya Okazaki ends up having a chance encounter with a shy girl named Nagisa Furukawa who he later learns had to repeat her final year of school because she was out of school for quite awhile the year before. Nagisa isn't having much luck with making new friends do to her shy nature but she does mention that she always wanted to join the drama club and Tomoya ends up convincing her to join only for her to discover that the drama club no longer exist since they're weren't enough member but Tomoya tells her not to give up on it and promises to help her get it going again.

The episode also spent a lot of time introducing us to characters such as Ryou Fujibayashi the timid class representative and her protective sister Kyou. Another character we meet is Tomoyo Sakagami who is a new transfer student who is great at fighting which is something that surprises quite a few people since she's a beautiful girl but also makes her popular with her fellow students. There is also an introduction of Tomoya's friend that is always getting into trouble and of Nagisa's parents who own a bakery, her mother is very sweet but a bit too sensitive while her father is rather brash and quite protective of his wife and daughter.

Overall I really enjoyed this episode I thought this was fairly good introduction to all the characters and I thought that the episode did a good job at showing us where all the characters are right now so that we can see how much they grow later on. I really like how Tomoya and Nagisa's characters contrast with each other which makes their interactions interesting to watch. Please tell me your thoughts on this episode in the comment section below.
