It's December 24th, and everyone is in the mood for Christmas festivities. Luckily Minamo, Hinata, Nozomi and the rest of the gang thought ahead and planned a...cosplay party?! The night is young and fantasies run rampant, as the friends make their way to the gathering; but though they'd like nothing more than to arrive quickly and safely, various obstacles stand in their way: a flying ship, express trains and a mysterious familiar young girl! Can the friends manage to get to the party on time?
Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
Summer break is now over; the second semester has started for Tomoya, Nagisa and the others, and little has changed. Since Tomoya's relationship with his father is still troubled, he continues to live with Nagisa and her family, even if it means getting roped into organizing a baseball team for the family bakery. Life at school continues as normal with Sunohara as carefree as ever; however, when his sister Mei voices her concerns about him, the series of events that follow place a strain on Sunohara and Tomoya’s friendship. Whether it's saving a person from themselves or passing on a message from the past, one thing’s for sure: no matter how tough things get, good friends will always be there to help out.
Clannad after story has the same 'supernatural, yet realistic' romance/bishoujo feel as Wind. It also has a lot of humor, which makes it similar to this anime. Although, the after story is somewhat darker than the first portion.
