The Event from One Year Before (一年前の出来事, Ichinen Mae no Dekigoto?) is the twenty-third episode of Clannad ~After Story~. Like The Events of Summer Holidays, it is an extra episode. It was first broadcast in Japan on 19 March 2009.


One year before the events of the beginning of the story, Tomoya is beginning his second year, and Nagisa her first time as a third-year student. Nagisa is having trouble making friends as usual, while Tomoya and Youhei are busy being delinquents and carrying out pranks at Kyou's, and inadvertently Nagisa's, expense. After Nagisa is knocked out by a falling metal pan that Tomoya and Youhei had set up as a prank for first-year students, a classmate of Nagisa's finally finds the chance to talk with her and they become friends. Nagisa keeps the banner from the prank (with a message to instill confidence written by Tomoya) because she feels it attributed to her making a new friend. The message saying, "Don't give in to the hardships ahead of you".

Major events[]

  • Nagisa and Tomoya meet for the first time.

  • Akio's joke about Mother of Ultra (ウルトラの母, Urutora no Haha?) is a reference to the Ultra Series.

  • This episode is the only one that's not based on the events depicted in the visual novel. It is based on the first and third episode in the Side Stories of the visual novel. Additional information about Side Stories can be found here.
