I'd imagine people who haven't played either well miss out on tons of references.
In other news, trying to speed through the Clannad visual novel to watched the anime, who unlike most adaptions I've heard is actually superior.
Absolutely, the novel was fien but Clannad+CLannad After Story for me is nothing less than the best anime ever (well, a draw with Cowboy Bebop)
And yes, being a parody Carnival Phantasm doesn't makes sense if you didn't watched Fate Stay Night and/or Tsukihime ^^
