Best Clannad Characters

The Top Ten
1 Nagisa Furukawa

Might be spoilers, read at your own discretion.

Nagisa is the kindest character, next to Ushio, in the whole series. People say she's the worst and it's probably because of her personality. Most people want that strong girl who can fend for herself and protect herself.

Honestly, myself, I like the girls that are sweet, innocent and kind. Nagisa is all this and more. All other characters in Clannad are falling for Tomoya trying their hardest to show it whereas Nagisa is just there, there for him everywhere. She doesn't have to try hard even if she doesn't know Tomoya shares the same feelings towards her. Love is being there for them all the time even if you aren't stronger than them, to show them that they care. Sure Ryou, Kyou, and Tomoyo could've been great romantic interests, later wife, to Tomoya but Clannad wouldn't be the heartbreaking tear jerker that it is without Nagisa's character to completely attach us to the series.

Nagisa's is the girl that Tomoya ...more

Nagisa is one of my favorite anime girls. Normally I don't go for the cute shy girl but she pulled me in. I never wanted to watch Clannad because I hate harems but then I watched the first episode and got hooked and watched anyways because even though there are other girls who like Tomoya, Nagisa is in my opinion, the only one that fits him perfectly. And I don't feel like Tomoya would of had the depth and passion that he had with Nagisa with the others. Anyways, I was watching Clannad and I found Nagisa'a character so very beautiful. Like I said, I normally don't like the shy girls who tend to cry but she was different. You watched her go from a shy girl who was always sick and didn't have much confidence, to slowly with the help of Tomoya gaining some confidence and making friends. She's sweet and kind to everyone and didn't have to do anything to grab Tomoya's attention, her presence itself did. She's also very sensitive of others and actually tries her best to help where she can. ...more

So annoying, and useless. Nagisa is boring, and can't do anything on her own. She relies entirely on other people, especially Tomoya when he gets close to her. All she has going for her is her hot mom and hilarious father. She didn't even get her mothers looks, easily being the worst looking character as well.

How on earth did Nagisa get the 3rd place? I was so shocked! She deserves to be number one. Most people prefer active girls who talk a lot to shy and innocent girls. That's one reason people don't like me that much. I am not writing going to write a biography of myself here but it's the truth. People think that it is a crime be shy, innocent and kind. I am not talking about my self here. I am talking about Nagisa. She is weak and helpless at times but inside she is strong. She is kindhearted to everyone.

2 Tomoya Okazaki

He's flawed but at the same time he's a very deep and kindhearted person. an aching soul who generally cares for others; and I love how that's all combined with his sarcastic humour and mildly apathetic personality. he's just great. I could write something longer like a character analysis, but I think it's great how you follow him through the whole thing and watch him develop. he's also very charming and handsome, I can see why the girls in clannad fancy him.

For a self-confessed juvenile delinquent, he's far from that or the mean guy he keeps telling his daughter he is, he has a lot going for him!

Tomoya needs to be first. He IS the main character after all. He develops more than anyone else in the anime.

I like tomoya, because he is very kind person so lovely men and always take care about their family.

3 Kyou Fujibayashi

Kyou was a very well written. She is probably one of the character with a huge amount of development over the series. I could relate with her very well.
Though it was clear from the very beginning that Nagisa is the main heroine of the story, the part where her heart is broken still made me cry. I am sure this isn't something everybody or as a matter of fact anybody would've felt.
But I did as I extremely like her. She will always remain the best Clannad character for me.

Easily best girl, she is intelligent, incredibly kind, and hilarious. She is perfect for Tomoya, and he is lucky to have her. She knows how to get things done, and she does them well. On top of all that, she is also a great cook. Best girl

She might not be the main character but Kyou's personality really shines out in clannad. She's strong and has a high temper, but also has a sweet and caring side to her.

With her big personality she was really fun and entertaining to watch.

4 Youhei Sunohara

It was really difficult to choose but I wanted to show Sunohara some love. He's the comic relief character, and he really brightened up the show. What I loved about him though was all the character development that we saw in After Story. With Mei and everything. He also always stayed a really loyal friend to Tomoya. Their friendship is so touching because even after beating the crap out if each other they just laugh again.

He is a great and underrated character. He is a humour relief and sometimes his words are deep and mature. I would not watched the series if he was not there. Best character for me..

Youhei is so funny and cute, he's easily one of the best! From when I watched the first episode I thought he was one of the coolest.

Oh, Sunohara...

Those scenes when he tried to prove Tomoyo was a boy... Priceless.
He made me laugh and he is a pervert but a funny pervert

5 Kotomi Ichinose

Intelligent airhead is adorable, and with her backstory, all you can do is want to make her happy, just might pull all the weeds out of her front yard.

Aw, Kotomi has everything. She's funny, smart and cute.. Love her. She might not be the main character but Kotomi makes the show what it is she's just beautiful!

Of all the characters who disappear after what happens to Nagisa, she's the one I miss the most.

Best girl 100%. I liked all the girls in clannad but Kotomi had the best personality(personal presence) and was the funniest.

6 Tomoyo Sakagami

She's one of those characters that seem like tsunderes (tsunderes, to put in short, are characters that seem hard and insensitive on the outside, but once warmed up are finally caring), but in all terms, she's just about as caring, but stronger, then Nagisa. Even though she's not the spotlight of the series, Tomoyo can prove that she doesn't need protection from anyone else, and that all girls can be independent, unlike Nagisa.

Tomoyo is a very ambitious character who will stop at nothing to achieve her goals. Even though she has superhuman strength, she is always striving to become a better person and improve a different type of strength. Her love for Tomoya is unmatched, and her very own visual novel "Tomoyo After" does wonders for her character development.

She has awesome personality. She is strong and caring. Nagisa able to revived drama club only due to sakagami became school council president. Sakagami ova series with tomoya is best love story.

While not as good as Kyou, Tomoyo is great, a smart strong, and cute person, that anybody can respect.

7 Fuko Ibuki
8 Akio Furukawa

Akio is one of my favorite characters period. He's funny when he wants, and he can also be very serious when he wants. He's a master of loving his family, and knows how to make the most of every moment in life. Or he's just the best actor there ever was.

9 Ushio Okazaki

WHY IS USHIO OKAZAKI 10TH
Ushio is a sweet girl who never really knew her mother she is kind and cute to everyone and was never mad at her dad for leaving her.She was lonely and she made me cry in so many scenes she cared for all the other characters.
Ushio is so cute she is exactly like a younger Nagisa but sometimes has her dad happy attitude.
When Ushio got sick she did not deserve it she was an innocent 5 yr old girl who was slowly dying but all she wanted to do was stay with her daddy.
When Ushio died I cried and cried and cried and... You get the point she made such an impact on the anime this is why I love Ushio.

I am actually surprised Ushio is only 10th. She makes up the heart of the After Story and is the center spotlight of "that" episode (you know, the episode that made us all cry like a 5 year old girl when she falls into Tomoya's arms crying "papa"). She is innocent, adorable, and her character's existence also has a much deeper meaning than just being Tomoya and Nagisa's daughter.

She deserves so much better! Come on, show her some love, people!

I love Ushio and the relationship she has with Tomoya in the series. I love her character because she is the reason why I long for a connection with a woman. So I can have a daughter and love her and my wife like Tomoya did with Nagasaki and Ushio. Also, she's just great. My second choice would probably be Nagasaki.

She is definitely the best character in this show. I LOVE Ushio. Until episode 18 (the famous episode in after story that takes place in the field of flowers), I had never cried once during the anime. (Not even when Nagisa died, surprisingly, although I did feel an extreme surge of pure sadness when this event occured.) Ushio is purehearted, strong, innocent, and one of the most important characters in Clannad ~After Story~. Let's not forget she's the most adorable one too! (On a side note, another reason I like her so much is because she looks exactly like Nagisa. I don't know why but that makes me so happy.)

10 Sanae Furukawa

She makes me laugh her and akio when she runs out the shop crying.

"Watashi no pan wa... watashi no pan wa..."

Still kills me to this day of laughter. God I love Nagisa's parents so much.
