Clannad is the type of anime you need to prepare for emotionally, except that you find this out too late.
The first season is filled with light-hearted quotes, and the 2nd season piles on the emotion, depth, and “ugly” side of life as a young adult.
I’ll be sharing “both” types of quotes, and everything in between.
Taken from characters like:
- Tomoya Okazaki.
- Nagisa Furukawa.
- Kotomi Ichinose.
- Yoshino Yusuke.
- Tomoyo Sakagami.
- Sanae Furukawa.
- Youhei Sunohara.
And a couple of other clannad characters you’re familiar with.
Let’s get started…
The Best Clannad Quotes:
Tomoya Okazaki Quotes
“If I’m around you, I don’t think I’ll ever be bored.” – Tomoya Okazaki
“The days I spent with you were a lot of fun. I realized for the first time that it makes me so happy to be needed by others. I thought I’d get along well with you like this. But I can’t. I was being a jerk. While I was with you, I was looking at someone else. I kept it to myself even after realizing that. I was taking advantage of your kindness.” – Tomoya Okazaki
“I couldn’t help laughing the moment I saw him. Actually, I think that was the first time I laughed since I came to that school. He might have looked stupid but it was he kind of stupid I wanted in on.” – Tomoya Okazaki
“If you feel like crying you should not hold back your tears. You should let it all out while you still can – because when you get bigger sometimes you can’t cry even if you have something to cry about.” – Tomoya Okazaki
“What are you so hesitant about? It’s your dream, isn’t it? It’s right in front of you and you’re wavering? You gotta be reckless, and take whatever you can!” – Tomoya Okazaki
“You are who you are. You have to do what you can.” – Tomoya Okazaki
“I hate this town. It’s too filled with memories I’d rather forget. I go to school every day, hang out with my friends, and then go home. There’s no place I’d rather not go ever again. I wonder if anything will ever change? Will that day ever come?” – Tomoya Okazaki
“Isn’t it fine as long as you find it? Isn’t it fine as long as you find the next fun and happy moments again?” – Tomoya Okazaki
“Do not lose to the obstacles that you will meet in the future.” – Tomoya Okazaki
Nagisa Furukawa Quotes
“You shouldn’t stop like that. If you can move forward, then you should.” – Nagisa Furukawa
“Nothing can stay unchanged. Fun things… Happy things… They can’t possibly remain the same.” – Nagisa Furukawa
“Meeting you was the best thing that ever happened to me. You made me so happy. I don’t want you to be lost or afraid or anything like that. From here on out, I know things might be hard sometimes. But no matter what may await, please don’t regret meeting me.” – Nagisa Furukawa
“Life can bring lots of hardships, but it’s always important to keep in mind that there are people around you who care for you, and are willing to help you through whatever you’re dealing with.” – Nagisa Furukawa
“I, Okazaki Nagisa, will no longer cry. No matter what painful things I face, I’ll hang in there and overcome it. But, I might cry during moments of happiness. I hope that you can get along… with someone like me.” – Nagisa Furukawa
“Of course I’ll stay with you… No matter what happens.. Forever and ever.” – Nagisa Furukawa
“Our journey starts, on this long, long steep slope.” – Nagisa Furukawa
Youhei Sunohara Quotes
“You’re trying to stay unscarred, aren’t you? If you’ve come this far, you’ll have to hurt someone. The more time you take to decide, the deeper and more it’ll hurt. For all of you.” – Youhei Sunohara
“You’re the spore of a flower. You’ll be going on a trip, taken away by the wind. To go to new places and meet new people. You shouldn’t always rely on your sister. Even if you’re apart, your bonds still remain. That’s what family is.” – Youhei Sunohara
Kotomi Ichinose Quotes
“The world is beautiful, even when it’s filled with sadness and tears.” – Kotomi Ichinose
“Those who seek out the truth must not be arrogant. You must not laugh at miracles just because they cannot be explained scientifically. You must not turn away from the beauty of this world.” – Kotomi Ichinose
“I must study lots of things or I won’t become a great person.” – Kotomi Ichinose
“The day before yesterday, I saw a rabbit. Yesterday, it was a deer. And today, it’s you.” – Kotomi Ichinose
Yoshino Yusuke Quotes
“At a place where you feel most restful… Next to the person you find most dear. People’s lives are repetitions of inflicting pain on each other. It’s understandable to doubt others. But being unable to trust anything is the same as being unable to feel other people’s love. Aren’t you, perhaps, feeling lonely? Aren’t you, perhaps, living slavishly? Are you able to laugh with an honest heart?” – Yoshino Yusuke
“Keep on living your life in such a way that love doesn’t fade away. I shall work… so that love may shine brightly, even today.” – Yoshino Yusuke
“He realized that he had lost sight of something important. No matter what turn he took he should have kept singing. Even if his songs couldn’t save the world, he could still sing songs for her. Don’t ever lose sight of what’s important to you.” – Yoshino Yusuke
“Children, this is the only gift I can give you right now. A formless gift you call a memory. I don’t have any money and I can’t give you something tangible. But even so, even if it isn’t tangible, a memory is something that will continue to be with you. That is what I believe.” – Yoshino Yusuke
“Everyone makes mistakes. What’s important is how to make up for it.” – Yoshino Yusuke
Tomoyo Sakagami Quotes
“No matter how cold and distant people may become, on the inside something warm and precious always remains, something that never changes. To me, that’s what family is like.” – Tomoyo Sakagami
“I’ve already decided. Getting good grades and listening to teachers can take me somewhere high and far away, but what if that’s not where I want to go?” – Tomoyo Sakagami
“Time and titles do not matter in the bonds between people.” – Tomoyo Sakagami
Ryou Fujibayashi Quotes
“Please don’t apologize. If you did, and I forgave you, then it’d be like it was all a lie. I want to hold those memories we had dear. The fun times… The painful times… All of it. So please, don’t apologize.” – Ryou Fujibayashi
“If a prediction is right, then it’s like you only have one future. Like that future has been decided. But if it’s wrong, then you have an almost infinite number of possibilities. And that means that even the tiniest twist of fate can change your future. I want to believe that I have choices – that the path I walk has many different turns, and many different roads to follow!” – Ryou Fujibayashi
Misae Sagara Quotes
“Being too eager brings negative results.” – Misae Sagara
Akio Furukawa Quotes
“It’s natural that men have things they need to protect.” – Akio Furukawa
“We didn’t give up on our dreams! We changed our dreams into your dream! That’s what parents do! That’s what a family does.” – Akio Furukawa
Shima Katsuki Quotes
“Love is like a firework from the past… it’s more beautiful for it to go to pieces and scatter far off.” – Shima Katsuki
Ushio Okazaki Quotes
“Sanae-san told me, places that I can cry are in a toilet, or in daddy’s arms.” – Ushio Okazaki
Kyou Fujibayashi Quotes
“Isn’t there something strange in becoming friends because you’re asked? Friends aren’t given; you’re supposed to make them.” – Kyou Fujibayashi
“If the results come true, it’s as if there’s only one future. If it fails, we can think that other futures exist… I want to believe that in our future there are many possibilities waiting.” – Kyou Fujibayashi
Sanae Furukawa Quotes
“If your life can change once, your life can change again.” – Sanae Furukawa
