Clannad "Canned Bread" Promotion Launched
posted on by Evan Miller
The bread is being sold in and around the station area at a cost of 350 yen (about US$3.20) per can. Some of the bread is being sold from vending machines. The packaging is similar to the canned oden often sold in the Akihabara area, but the bread itself draws inspiration from the bread shops seen in the Clannad series. The bread is available in seven flavors: chocolate, green tea, strawberry, butter, raisin, blueberry, and milk. The company responsible for developing and selling the bread is Pan Akimoto, who first developed the canned pastries in the wake of the Hanshin Awaji earthquake that struck the Kobe area in 1995.
The Clannad series began airing on October 4 in Japan, and the full-length anime feature version debuted in theaters on September 15. The series originated from a dating simulation game that was released for the PC in 2004 and for the PlayStation 2 in 2006.
