Clannad (visual novel)/Awesome Music

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

This troper is going to go ahead and summarize for you: almost every single song featured in Clannad will either make you go "d'aww or start sniffling. Or both.

  • Clannad's opening is amazing, both in the original and in the official Cuckool Mix.
    • While the opening is incredibly beautiful, the ending counts as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, given how...adorable it is (and that is a word I don't use lightly, given my utter lack of a soft spot for cute things). It even spawned a meme in which the dango family in the animation were replaced with Pikachu. See it here.
      • The song is basically symbolic of Tomoya's feelings about Nagisa over the entire series. In the first season, it's adorable and twee.

    • After Story's OP song, Toki wo Kizamu Uta, counts as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming. Directly translated, it means "The Song That Transcends Time," which, put in context, is perfectly symbolic of Tomoya's love for Nagisa.
      • The lyrics are absolutely heartrending when placed in context with the series:

"It was only you who I loved, It's a song I only sang with you, It's the time we passed together, I can't go on all alone."
