@TheIllIntent: Agreed. I loved what they did with Yuri and Otonashi, but they didn't invest enough time in Kanade. They basically kept her as a prop for the majority of the anime, and then randomly spilled a bunch of character baggage in the finale episode. I feel like her initial purpose was to be a mascot for Key, but they later realized she actually had to have a character, so they wrote something up at the last minute.
Technically,she is the titular tritagonist.
@CrimsonCondor: In only 13 episodes, the main story being told wasn't her's - it was Otonashi's and Yuri's. If we got a story that went more in depth about Kanade (including more details about her when she was alive), I'm sure she'd finally be able to realize that untapped potential.
I hated this girl for years, but now that I've begun rewatching the anime, I've noticed potential I'd initially missed. She was portrayed in a very lackluster manner in the anime, but I see this more as a story writing issue than a character writing one. Her true depth was always present; she just fell victim to a bad plot. She is now my favorite.
She's a precious angel (ha ha). Could've used more development, but I still do really like her.
