I've never come across a better series than Kanon.
I found Kanon to be the worst of the Kyoto Animation shows that I've seen.
Their other 'romance' series are better, I think. Clannad and Air.
I just never really got into Kanon. The 'sad' parts of the show just felt forced to me, and the 'funny' parts were mostly typical anime humour, which I mostly don't like.
Air had a similar funny part - sad part structure (aside from the rather bizarre turn it takes in the second half), but I felt it did that better. The characters (aside from the main girl) were less annoying.
Clannad was just funnier, and didn't try and force the 'tearjerker' moments as much. They felt more natural. Though, again, the main girl was very annoying.
I don't know what it is about KyoAni, and their deciding that the worst relationship in a visual novel is going to be the canon one. I mean, who wouldn't want the canon relationship of Kanon (oh god) to be the incestual one?
Anyway, bottom line: Clannad and Air were better than Kanon. I'd recommend them. Clannad moreso.
