The upcoming 2017 is truly a magnificent year for anime fans. After the announcement of "Code Geass" season 3 and "Gintama" final arc, it was revealed that "Clannad" will be having a new anime project for 2017. There are no specific details yet but fans are already speculating on what the project will be about.

Speculations suggest that the project might be an anime special. The series has released anime specials before titled "Another World: Tomoyo Chapter" and "Another World: Kyou Chapter" which feature Tomoya in a relationship with the other girls in the story. It may also be a movie focusing on the life of Tomoya and Nagisa with their child, Ushio after "Clannad: After Story."

"Clannad" was adapted from a visual novel produced by key. A 24-episode anime series premiered in October 2007 while a second season titled "Clannad: After Story" aired from 2008 to 2009. A film adaptation focusing on Nagisa was also released in 2009.

The first season follows the story of Tomoya Okazaki, a third year high school student who turned into a delinquent after his shoulder injury prevented him from playing baseball and caused him to get cold treatment from his father. He will then meet several girls who will change his life including Nagisa Furukawa, a soft-spoken, sickly girl who is repeating a year in highschool due to illness.

On the other hand, "Clannad: After Story" extends into the next seven years after the first season, Tomoya and Nagisa got married but Nagisa died after giving birth to their daugther, Ushio. Devastated, Tomoya lost his purpose in life and can't even function properly or take care of his infant child so Ushio was sent to Nagisa's parents. Just when he finally overcame the grief and decided to take care of Ushio, the child died of the same illness. Tomoya was given another chance to save both Nagisa and Ushio by traveling through time.

Details of the new "Clannad" anime project will be revealed at AnimeJapan 2017 to be held on March 24-26, 2017 at the Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, Japan.
