Clannad fans have had the roots of their faith in the much vaunted integrity of the title’s narrative shaken, after observations revealed a continuity error of the most egregious sort between the two seasons.
As you can see here, the Furukawa household’s stairway, on the left and from episode three of the first season, has no banister. Episode 17 does.
Fans have difficulty explaining this away, save by invoking mysterious redecorations.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen such shocking disregard for quality in a top anime, but this hardly excuses such slovenliness.
