Yuuichi Aizawa, a high school student, returns to a town that he last visited 7 years previously to live with his aunt and cousin. For a reason he’s not quite sure of, he can hardly remember anything about his last visit, but initially this doesn’t seem to worry him too much.

The day after he arrives he goes into town where he (literally) bumps into a girl named Ayu Tsukimiya, and Yuuichi’s memories slowly begin to return.

    I mean thanks

  2. Kevin says:

    Everytime I try to use the english patch, it says it can’t because the file is in use. How do I fix this?

  3. Lillie Joe says:

    Why is there a censor? :<

  4. Batousai619 says:

    I mounted the ISO in DT, installed it in my external hard drive and applied the english patch… But when I run it, it says Reallive.exe has stopped working… Did I do anything wrong by any chance?

    • zeroz says:

      Have you tried running it in a different mode? Right click properties > compatibility then change it to run in another mode – like Windows Xp Service Pack 3.

  5. CG Collector says:

    I have 99% CG for Kanon and I am missing HCG for Sayuri’s route. I have play-though her route thought so I should have it, but I don’t. Its like the game has Sayuri’s route stuck in all ages for me but I deleted the all ages folder so it should have that last CG.

    I Earn all my CG so i want to read the part I am missing and I have seen the HCG so I know what it looks like but i don’t want to spoil anything so its in the 3 CG in Mai Kawasumi(1st Column 2nd Row)on the CG Mode Extras. So dose anyone know how to get that last H-scene and read it to.

    • Zaitsev says:

      In Mai’s route, there is an opportunity to select the option of wondering what the two of them do when they play together, selecting it will grant the one you are looking for.

  6. Ryder says:

    It’s the adult version right ?

  7. The Arcane says:

    I have tried downloading it and extracting it, but I don’t know how to run it properly. I also have no idea how to patch the text. (I enjoy the game with the original Japanese voice acting).

    Could someone please help?

  8. need help says:

    It would be great if anyone could help me out I managed to get the game running but everything is in Japanese. Every time I try to patch it I get a message saying it failed a crc32 check and that nothing was patched.

  9. iCON says:

    mcafee ent 8.7.0i is detecting a Generic.dx!svo trojan on the english patch. anyone else getting this?

  10. kvothe says:

    im entirely new to VN’s. can anyone tell me what the difference between DA1 and DAfree is, and what they are. also, ant other tips on how to download these things properly would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    • anonymous says:

      DA1 and Dafree are just download mirrors, nothing to do with the visual novel itself.

    • The Kong says:

      Da1 is the link to the download for the vn as a whole file. The free mode gives you the whole game too however the game is split into parts of 200 mb size. so you will need a bit more time since you can only download up to two files at a time in free mode and you have to wait 5 minutes before starting the next one.

  11. Key/Conspirator says:

    I have downloaded the files and I have extracted all of them into one folder, what now???

  12. Key/Conspirator says:

    I figured out how to mount the iso thank to the walkthroughs but now I have no idea what to do. Tried the game and it came out in Japanese, tried the patch but it just kept on telling me that the game was in progress and to exit it before patching, but still it after exiting it wouldn’t patch.

    Please help me, I’ve been waiting for ages to play Kanon. uguu~

    • Amnesiac says:

      Have you figured out, yet? If not, I’ll start with asking if you are a novice in playing visual novels or you are having problems with this particular VN. Because if you are a novice, then I’ll have to explain about applocale and “language for non-unicode programs” in settings of Windows(google “hot to install visual novels). Also what version of windows are you using?

      • Key/Conspirator says:

        I’m not what you call a novice. Thanks for the heads-up though, it helped.

        Figured out, through previous posts, that it was a file problem, its been sorted out now.

        Thanks for the help.

        Time for me to enjoy some KEY goodness.

  13. Mr. E says:

    I have several questions regarding the files:

    1. Where do I put the English patch files (where they would be logically (main Kanon file) placed has just turned into two daemon tools files rather than a bog-standard folder with a bunch of files)
    2. Where do I put the voice patches again for the same reasons as Q1.
    3. Is there a 64 bit patch as not even the original version will start up which in my previous experiences has always been due to the files being designed solely for 32 bit.

    Preferred solution is a link to another one of those step by step guides that I’ve used on some of the other VNs on this site.

    Also a word of warning there is at least one Trojan in one of the segmented downloads. Make sure you’re protected prior to extraction.

  14. pikachuulover says:

    How do I put the voice patch in to work?

  15. KROnyx91 says:

    does the eng patch contain the game and the adult content or is it the all ages version (I`d like the adult version please)

    • ayee says:

      this game is the japanese standard addition which is originally an 18+ so the H content is already on the game and the english patch is well just the english patch

  16. OkazakiTomoyO says:

    Thank you for uploading this admin but how can I make the voice patch to work do I have just to put it in the main directory or I have to copy it in a specific folder inside the MainDir?

  17. 12345 says:

    the english patch download is not working.

  18. A-1000 says:

    URGENT Help pls Admin!

    The real-live.exe file in the KanonEnglishPatch.rar folder is infected with Troj_spnr.08FE11 malware!!

    So can you please do something about it. I was really looking forward to playingthe game and I still am but this just ruins everything. I would really appreciate your assisstance right now!

    • admin says:

      This is false positive.

      • A-1000 says:

        I use trend micro maximum security and it detected the trojan! So what should I do huh? I can shut down my protection temporarily but it will detect it again!


        sorry for the stubborn complaints but can u please reassure me one last time!

        Have u checked it yourself and there really aren’t any problems and it’s just a false alarm???

        And thanks a lot for the quick reply to the previous post I really appreciate it!

        • admin says:

          Yes, every game posted here is checked before getting listed on site. You don’t have to trust me – check out https://ers.trendmicro.com/guide/en_us/AG/Help/Sending_Suspicious_Files_to_Trend_Micro.htm for information on how to send the file in question to your antivirus vendor, so that some specialists can take a look at it and remove the warning from their database once they verify that it’s clean ( this also helps out other users of this website as they get less false positive warnings and help AV developer to fine-tune their detection engine).

          • A-1000 says:

            Thank u very much admin!

            It’s totally cool now thanks for your reassurance and am looking forward to your assistance when required in the future!!


  19. kilicool64 says:

    Hi, I’m planning to make an English version of the patch that uses the voices from the PSP version. However, I was unable to find either the voice files in perfect quality or a program that extracts them from the PSP ROM. I would highly appreciate if you could help me out.

  20. Thomas says:

    I have a problem with this game. I got all the rar files and extracted them and I used Daemontools to mount the file but when it opens, the game freezes up almost immediately after selecting any of the 4 options. When I press the 4th option (the one that’s supposed to be for changing name) the game closes. Also, everything is in Japanese and there are lots of question marks in place of words when installing. I have the English patch but I don’t know why the words are not in English. Please help.

  21. Zetta says:

    Hello! I’m in need of some assistance. ^_^;
    I’ve downloaded the game, extracted the .rars, and have the game set up and playable. My problem lies with the patch. The first couple times I tried using the patch, it gave me the same error as the above poster \need help\ wrote. I deleted all the files (including the game’s) and re-extracted them all and had the game running again. When I tried to patch this time, the patch claimed the game was successfully translated; however, when I opened it and started a new game, all the text was still in Japanese. Any suggestions?
    I’m sure I’m clicking on the correct file and my locale is in Japanese, and all those other typical suggestions are taken care of. X) I download games from this awesome website all the time and have encountered an error here and there with the games (all of which are quickly resolved), but this is the first time I’ve had this particular trouble. >.< Any help would be wonderful.

  22. Tununias says:

    I’m having trouble with both patches. I have no idea what to do with the voice patch. I assumed I needed to put the KOE folder into the KANON_SE folder, but nothing happens. As for the English patch. I copied and pasted the contents into KANON_SE and ran the reallive-patch.exe and it patched with no errors. Unfortunately, it only translated the menus, leaving the story text (at the bottom of the screen) in Japanese.

    Could someone please help? It seems that others are having similar problems and are being for the most part unanswered.

    • Tununias says:

      I solved the problem. I was actually running the game in WINE on linux, but now that I ran it on Windows everything works. But maybe that wasn’t exactly the problem because it seems others had the same problem on regular windows too.

  23. Katsuragi says:

    why the Characters don’t have voice ???

  24. -M- says:

    Finally I decided to include Kanon to my VN collections because its anime is very good. The process of installing runs smoothly, the game runs good too. The only thing that’s not good is the game runs with no character’s voice. I supposed even at the beginning the character’s must have voice, because the music is very good, will be much greater if combined with character’s voice. I tested it until the 1st day (7th of some month, I forgot what month it is), but even Nayuki doesn’t have voice (some people commented they hear Nayuki voice but not the others). I’ve download and extract the Voice Patch to the game (Kanon_SE) directory, even copy the voice files inside KOE folder to the game directory but with no difference. I wonder if reallive patch is the source of problem with the voice (maybe not since it’s located inside English Patch and not Voice Patch). I’ve tried to run it but marked with \CRC32 eror. Nothing patched.\ Even so I’m glad the game runs perfectly with such a very nice music. Thanks admin for bringing us VNs. 🙂

    If I want there be voice,Do I need to download the voice path and the game too?Or just the voice patch?

  28. assanime says:

    Is there a patch to remove H scenes?

  29. Yukari says:

    Been trying to get this to work… but having some serious problems. It took hours to figure out how to properly install it (had to dig to find instructions on how to do so), and when I finally got the game to load… it crashes/freezes when I start a new game. The music is there, but there was no text.

    Now, based on what someone said in the comments somewhere, I tried to load the game in Safe Mode… and that worked. Trouble is I can’t get sound to work in Safe Mode, and it’s annoying to have to reboot my entire machine to play one game. I made a little progress, saved, then tried again having windows run normally. The game crashed yet again, this time instantly (I had saved at a decision point). 🙁

    I’m not sure what else I can do. I made sure the font was installed, my computer is localized to Japan, and there doesn’t appear to be any corruption in the files. Why would the game work perfectly well (without sound) for me in safe mode, yet be unplayable otherwise?

    Any new ideas or help would be appreciated. :3

    How can I install the English patch after mounting the CD images?
    Please help

  35. triston54321 says:

    Hi, im having some trouble with installing the english patch and i really need some help. ive already extracted the games folder and ran it and the game ran fine(i was testing to make sure that it would run before i installed the english patch) when i tried to move everything inside of the english patch folder to KANON_SE it said that was not space in the folder?!!?!?! this is the message it said- \there is not enough space on Kanon_SE. you need an additional 19.8 MB to copy these files\. ant help!!!!????? i really want to play this game and it took me forever to set up everything and it would be a shame if it didnt work out and i didnt get to play the game. please reply!!!!!!

    • triston54321 says:

      also once i click past anything in the main menu the game stops responding!! can anyone help with that too please?! (i still need help on my previous problem too

  36. KinQQz says:

    Is this the 18+ version? if not how can you patch it?

  37. Ceaser Salad says:

    Having downloaded Clannad before this, I went to the folder for reference and noticed that the Clannad folder contained ‘KOE’ as a standard folder inside it. You must extract the voice patch in the desired folder and unravel the KOE folder so that it is visible within your installation folder. This has fixed the voice patch problem for me, and if you experienced voice patch trouble I am glad that I put this here.

  38. kiragakill says:

    is the game download already in the voice patch download or do i need to download them both ?

  39. Yo says:

    Why the h-scene is not showing in my game? Someone can help me? I have made the mai route 3 time and still not have all cgs :/ … Please help

  40. Someone says:

    I know it might seem weird (and a little idiotic of me to ask) but can you tell me what’s the dfference between the download (Game download) 450.86 mb and the (Voice Patch dowload) 1.6 GB? Anyway, thanks for uploading this VN for us, Eroge Downloads!

    • admin says:

      Well, it’s just as the name implies – game download contains… uhm, game itself. While the voice patch is optional download containing game voice files. Original game was unvoiced and text+images tend to be smaller than voices or music.

  41. Bob says:

    Whenever I try to do english patch it say “There is not enough space on KANON_SE. You need an additional 19.8 MB to copy these files. Please help.

  42. Siris says:

    Help! I managed to download the game and use the english patch successfully. When I run the game it loads fine. I get to the title screen and select \new game\. It takes me to the first scene and the music starts playing but no text comes up. Then it \stops responding\. This happens every time I try to play it. Please help.

  43. Rin says:

  44. mugia says:

  45. Hmm, says:

    How sad is the game? It is made by key and I have heard a lot of stories about how sad key is…But Ayu is so friggin cute!

  46. NewToVN's says:

    I don’t have any background on how to add patches to VN’s, can someone please help me with the english patch as where to place them and certain necessary steps? The game has no problem except the exit yes/no pop-up, it displays gibberish. Thanks in advance. 🙂

  47. Rajvir Singh says:

    In case anyone needs help, for this game just copy and paste the English Patch and overwrite the files there. That seems to work even if you can’t patch it directly.
