runs a bakery named Furukawa Bread with)& the father of Nagisa Furukawa. Akio first meets Tomoya when he visits the Furukawa Bakery, having been. He also meets Nagisa's parents: Akio Furukawa and Sanae Furukawa in the process. He began to harbor feelings for Nagisa towards the end of the first season. After spending a night with Nagisa's parents, they leave for Tomoya's apartment, where This is the first time Ushio meets her paternal grandfather, Naoyuki.
Nagisa tries to find work and starts as a waitress at a newly opened family restaurant with Rie Nishina and Sugisaka near the school hill. Tomoya and Akio visit Nagisa at work and scare out a couple of customers who were hitting on Nagisa. Back at home, Nagisa tells Tomoya that the old building of the school they went to is going to be torn down.

Knowing that the drama club was in the old building, Tomoya freaks out and admits that he is uncomfortable with all the changes happening in their town. Tomoya and Nagisa visit her parents then Sanae tells them Nagisa is most likely pregnant! Akio gets mad at Tomoya at first, but he congratulates him afterwards.
Nagisa becomes increasingly bedridden due to morning sickness. Nagisa wants to give birth at home, so Sanae introduces Yagi, a midwife who is to assist in the delivery. Sanae later tells Tomoya that giving birth will be difficult because of Nagisa's weak physique and may even put Nagisa's life at risk, so they might have to choose abortion. However, Sanae leaves the choice up to Tomoya and Nagisa.
Nagisa learns of her mother's worries, but she decides to go through with the birth. Akio takes Tomoya to a meadow and tells him more about the day when Nagisa nearly died. Akio carried Nagisa to the meadow and prayed for her life, and Nagisa miraculously regained consciousness. Akio tells Tomoya that while many painful and difficult things will happen, he and Sanae will always be there for Tomoya and Nagisa since they are family.
Tomoya and Nagisa take a walk by the river and decide on the name Ushio for their child. Nagisa enters the final months of her pregnancy, but she becomes sick again. On a heavy snow day, Nagisa goes into labor two weeks early Tomoya and her family, unable to transport her to a hospital in time, is forced to have her give birth at home. After an excruciating process, Nagisa successfully gives birth to their daughter, Ushiobut the delivery and her illness combined take their toll on her and Nagisa dies moments after seeing her newborn baby.
Tomoya, who has stayed by her side the entire time, does not take the sudden turn of events well.
His dream of raising their daughter together as a family is shattered. One day, Tomoya and Sanae go out together into town, and she asks him to go with them on a family trip; after Sanae continues to ask him, he accepts. The day of the trip, he discovers that both Akio and Sanae have left him alone with Ushio. The two spend the next day and night together, but Tomoya finds it difficult to connect with the small child. After Akio and Sanae still do not show up, Tomoya asks Ushio if she would be willing to still go on a trip, even if it was only with a person like him.
The two decide to take the trip by themselves and, as they walk, Tomoya wonders where they are headed. The next day, after staying at an inn the previous night, Tomoya and Ushio take a walk through the area and come across a field of flowers. Ushio plays in the field as Tomoya watches, but Ushio soon loses the robot in the field; they try to look for it, but to no avail. Remembering something from his past, Tomoya goes off to another area and meets his grandmother Shino Okazakihis father's mother.
She tells Tomoya how he came here with his father shortly after his mother Atsuko Okazaki died, and also how his father worked very hard to support him over the years. Tomoya finally comes to terms with Naoyuki that he is not a bad father.
When they go back to the field where Ushio is, she still cannot find the robot, and does not want to stop looking because it was the first thing her father ever gave her. Tomoya realizes his previous mistakes and vows to try his best for Ushio from now on, who is very happy at the prospect of being with her father. On the way home, Tomoya starts telling Ushio about Nagisa for the first time. After spending a night with Nagisa's parents, they leave for Tomoya's apartment, where they will both be living from now on.
Some time later, Tomoya takes a day off from work and the two meet up with Kouko Yoshino, whose sister Fuko Ibuki has finally been released from the hospital. Afterward, Tomoya and Ushio visit Naoyuki. Tomoya manages to convince his father into moving back to the countryside with his mother Shino. While Tomoya and Ushio happily say goodbye to Naoyuki now that his role as a father has come to an end, an orb of light appears and gets absorbed by Tomoya, while only being noticed by Ushio.
After that, Tomoya goes to work and Yusuke asks him for Fuko to play with Ushio, since they have become friends after all, and Tomoya agrees. When it is time to sleep, Tomoya uses the "Dango Daikazoku" song to lull Ushio to sleep. Fuko arrives at Tomoya's house to play until the evening when she goes back home as she reminds him about Nagisa. The next day, Kyou tells Tomoya about the annual sports day at school where the parents are to participate as well.

He is reluctant about it, but Ushio encourages him, which makes him change his mind. One evening, Ushio is taking a stroll to the new hospital by herself and encounters Fuko on her way. When the latter asks why she does this, Ushio says it is for no real reason. The next day, Tomoya is preparing for the meet at the Furukawa bakery, when Ushio is suddenly struck with a fever, much to the others' shock.
In case he had to leave home, he calls for both Akio and Sanae to take his place. Ushio asks Tomoya that she wants to go on a trip like last time, but he tells her that it will happen once she gets better. After Tomoya resigns from his job, Yusuke wishes him the best of luck. Akio offers Tomoya some money, but he declines his kindness and Akio states that every man has something to protect.
Tomoya believes that Nagisa's and Ushio's lives are somehow linked to the "changing" in the city. After several months, winter arrives and then Christmas. Ushio's fever still does not back down, and Tomoya seems to be getting sick as well and hallucinates the illusionary world.
Ushio once again asks Tomoya to go on a trip, and he ultimately accepts thinking that he might not be able to fulfill another promised wish.
After they leave the house and it starts snowing remembering Nagisa's deathUshio's fever worsens, and dies calm and serene in Tomoya's arms right after telling her father that she loves him. Soon after, Tomoya collapses in grief and supposedly dies of shock, then something strange happens. The girl can finally hear the robot, and tells it that they once existed in another world.
As she hums the tune of "Dango Daikazoku", the illusionary world starts to disappear. As the robot is swept away, the girl calls him "Daddy" and disappears with the world. On the school hill the day Tomoya first met Nagisa, he and the robot become one, he calls after Nagisa, hugs her, and she is glad that he did so. Nagisa brings Tomoya through time, events before Ushio's birth remain the same and together the voices of Tomoya and the robot note the end of his long journey.
Tomoya awakens to Ushio's birth, but this time, Nagisa miraculously survives. After Nagisa watches Tomoya give Ushio her first bath, she and Tomoya see countless orbs of light are floating throughout the city outside the window.
They both sing to Ushio and from then on, Tomoya and Nagisa experience a happy life raising their daughter together as a family, finally free of their cursed fate. After five years, Fuko and Kouko are walking to the new hospital to get a checkup. Fuko goes into the woods and spots the girl from the Illusionary World sleeping under a tree. When she approaches, it turns out to be Ushio; Fuko says that she would like to be friends, and that the fun is just getting started.
Nagisa is having trouble making friends as usual, while Tomoya and Youhei are busy being delinquents and carrying out pranks on Kyou, 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 freshmen, a classmate of Nagisa's finally finds the chance to talk with her and they become friends. Nagisa keeps the banner from the prank, one with the message to instill confidence written by Tomoya, because she feels it attributed her to making a new friend.
When Ushio falls asleep during the story, Tomoya begins to quite clearly recall a more tragic set of circumstances, a reality which didn't happen due to efforts of the girl in the illusionary world but of which he has a clear memory of. At the end of this retelling, Tomoya, with Ushio and Fuko who are both asleep, are shown under a tree at the present time having a picnic.
Ushio wakes up, just before Nagisa calls the three of them, saying that it is time to head home. However, Tomoya soon notices that Kyou has been acting strange, and confronts her. Kyou admits that she is also in love with him, but never confessed because she was too scared to risk being rejected or hurting Ryou's feelings. He viewed helping others as a hassel. Tomoya, does nothing because he fears or sees no point in doing the impossible and is perfectly blunt about it.
Tomoya eventually meets Nagisa and his world begins to change as she makes him happy and vise versa. I go to school every day, hang out with my friends, and then go home. I wonder if anything will ever change? Will that day ever come? There are limitations to this though, the wish can only effect you and the people around you in a positive way Basically the oppisite of the Holy Grail in Fate other wise the wish wont work.
They only appeare when someone helps someone else achive true happiness. Ushio was sad that she left her dad basically and the Illusinary world was born from that and so the robot being connected to Tomoya via different worlds the light orbs he collects are givin to the robot. Cause if you bring enough orbs together a mircal can occur "But a Shadow is cast, so what cast this shadow?
Tomoya struggles with change and hates it, he is unable to move on because of fear or the impossible. He lacked a real stable family and the result being he only knows to care for himself. The rest will talk about soon. Even if you're full of tears and sadness, open your eyes. Do what you want to do. Be what you want to be. Don't be in a hurry to grow up. What does it mean to be a family?
Akio shows us a defination of Family in Clannad and that statment becomes the foundation for Clannad After Story. Tomoya comes to love Nagis and wants to be with her, though Tomoya knows not how or what that looks like. Tomoya tries his best to grow up and mature, he helps people with Nagisa and even trys to act like "A man" but he lacks the core concept of what a famly is.
Senea and Akio concistly tell him they are family and they are there if he needs, but Tomoya continues to trys to do this on his own. Another reason why family plays a big part in the themes of the anime world is because Ushio and Tomoya love each other a lot and theyre love over comes many problems, the theme of Family is in the end what allows the anime ending to turn out the way it did.
We changed our dreams into your dream! The most common change seen in Clannad, is the changing of the town. It bothers Tomoya, why? Because ultimatly if something is good and it changes it must be changing for the worst "The city is changing. Our surroundings, and even ourselves. He is satisfied and is not willing to risk it.
He enjoys the happiness he has now. Sunhura is the only one to see this and tries to push him forward going as far as to say he'll date Nagisa in his place. Even The trees Tomoyo tries to save, Tomoya is willing to help. Not only because it will help the drama club but because if they dont stop it things will change. Tomoya is afraid of change. I like this school very, very much. But everything keep changing.
All the fun and happy things are changing. But even so, are you still able to like this place? Not once was someone left in the dirt, bur before they could get this they needed to accept and move on.
This theme is seen often but plays its point at the end. Nagisa and Tomoya go around helping others and they both agree that they've become stronger people because of this. Tomoya and Nagisa get married and eventually Nagisa gets pregnat.
The Problem starts to come to light, Tomoya. Tomoya has become stronger, but he has been running away from his problems. He has never faced his fears or problems.
Tomoya is self absorbed. Tomoya really doesnt understand what a family is as Nagisa and Tomoya are going threw a hard time and he begins to regret his choices as everything will change. He is very worried about how this will effect HIM.
Nagisa, due to her sickness and inability to get to a hospital is forced to give birth at home. Tomoya is there for her and helps her.
But it is here we find out if Tomoyas changes over the series are real or fake. We then witness the saddest death ever. He regrets dating Nagisa and having Ushio born. Its hard to blame the guy though, he doesnt really get what a family is, but that doesnt make it right. The change is so drastic it breaks Tomoya. Tomoya wishes he had never dated Nagisa and that it was the wrong choice and they should have gone different ways.
Tomoya shows he only cares for himself, he did all the things in the past because he was happy. Now he is sad and he gives up, all his hard work was for nothing and throws in the towel. Tomoya had learned nothing and i remember my mom watching this and when he finished she said "Well thats to bad" as she was dissipointed in him.
Tomoya hit a change and it ruined something important to him. Tomoya goes back to how he was before meeting Nagisa, meaning his change wasnt geninuine. Not that it wasnt real, but almost like he was acting which he even says once "I couldnt pretened i was happy like I was before" "We never should have meet, we never should have gone out, then Ushio would never have been born.
Tomoya has been laying back for 5 years, gambling, drinking and becoming a work aholic. Senea realizes this and plans a trip where Tomoya will be with Ushio. This works and the two go on the trip. Ushio is afraid of Tomoya though, and Tomoya shows some dislike for Ushio at first. The two in the end decide to go, Tomoya is the biggest jerk ever though.
Eventually he realizes where he is and has memmorys of the place. Tomoya begins to remember what happened, That his Father lost his wife but did not give up as he was left with Tomoya.
He worked his hardest to raise Tomoya to be a good man even after failures and the hate of his own son. Tomoya then sees his Father really cared for him.
He sees that he was his Family, his fathers dream was for Tomoya to become a man, much like what Akio said parents where back in season 1, that their children were they're parents dream. Tomoya then sees his mistake, and realizes that he is more of a failure then his Father. Tomoya became exactly like his father except that he abondoned Ushio where as His father raised him.
