[[WMG: Nagisa and Ushio have AIDS.]]

AIDS disables a person's immune system. Nagisa's body is always weak and she gets sick easily. Clannad takes place in TheNineties (there were no cell phones and computers.) so AIDS could be an unknown disease in that time. Nagisa could get AIDS through a used syringe. AIDS can show its effects anytime. And Ushio can get this disease through her mother. Reset button may remove her disease.
* This troper has thought this too, but replace AIDS with Lupus. It helps that Asian women are more susceptible to Lupus then others.
* This also might be your average snow anemia.
* Both AIDS and Lupus can be diagnosed through medical tests. It's said that the best medical professionals couldn't diagnose Nagisa's illness, and they couldn't work out what was causing her to become so sick.
* I was working on the assumption that it was a kind of chronic fatigue syndrome - which is a diagnosis given when doctors don't know why someone is always tired and sick.
* I was always under the impression that the illness was just due to both girls having strong connections with the illusionary world. After all, keeping a universe alive for that long and, for Ushio, ''actually existing in two separate universes'' must really draw on your energy. This would also explain why Ushio is stated as being perfectly healthy as of the series ending; the world was able to sustain itself and the girl in the illusionary world became one with her.
* My theory is that it was some kind of congenital disease. Maybe Sanae inhaled too much of Akio's secondhand smoke when she was pregnant with Nagisa, giving her a genetic defect that would later be passed down to Ushio.

You now ask, why does KyoAni spend so much time on Fuko, even after her StoryArc had been completed in the first season? Fuko held the key to Nagisa and Tomoya's happiness. Fuko was the first one who gave Nagisa and Tomoya the vital first push on their journey to pursue each other (the scene where Fuko wants them both to call each other by first name). Fuko helped the Garbage Doll find Ushio in the Illusionary World, and without her, Illusionary World Ushio might never have known her true identity, and if she didn't know her true identity, she wouldn't have been able to send Tomoya/Garbage Doll back in time to save both her and her mother. Without Fuko, Tomoya would have done a true GenerationXerox by living in permanent grief like his own father.

We all knew that the Tomoyo After's ending was a huge depression when Tomoya died and Tomoyo now left all alone. What if Tomoyo wasn't entirely alone in the life after Tomoya. [[spoiler:If you guys watched the adult version of the VN]], maybe Tomoyo would end up to be a single mother of Tomoya's child.

All thats missing is a Dalek in a schoolgirl outfit....


We have a potentially sentient city, a magical school, and a weird lights. Also an old guy who certainly knows WAY too much bordering on Magical Janitor levels... what if the city is a Tardis or the remnants of one? Those lights are LITERAL reset buttons. The school naturally screws the subjects of reality allowing a comatose girl to ghost around. And there is a literal Other World thing happening with a robot. It has Time Lord written all over it, not THE Time Lord we know and love (or that other guy/lady) but someone similar but less.. scary at the very least. The Principle always makes sure his students get their happy ending even if time needs some readjusting!

[[WMG: The entire timeline where Nagisa dies is an extended dream sequence]]
Tomoya, paranoid that Nagisa wouldn't survive childbirth, had a long, extended dream sequence where his nightmare scenario played out, ending with himself and Ushio dying. The timline where Nagisa survives is THE timeline.

Tomoya actually blacked out briefly and, since dreams can be time-compressed, five years played out in the dream. When he came to, he feared it was all a premonition dream...only it wasn't.

* Ok, someone obviously only watched the anime. It generally a bad idea to do that with works based on a visual novel. Go read it. You won't? Oh well, I guess I'll explain it then. It has to happen this way to make the story work, if Nagisa doesn't die, Tomoya won't realize how hard his fathers life really was, and the he did what he could, despite the circumstances, and he did better than Tomoya. If all of this wouldn't have happened, he wouldn't ahve reconciled with his father, which is one of the main points of After Story. Ushio dying is maybe a bit over the top, but I think it's so Tomoya will know that he can reach a better world using the orbs. Though if you think this is bad, go play Kanon, I dare you.

Connections to the illusionary world aside, this is why Nagisa and Ushio have their disease. They are actually reincarnated winged ones. The light orbs that Tomoya collects in the Visual Novel is the magic needed to break their curse.
