Included in the 8th and final DVD of Clannad ~After Story~ is an extra episode set in an alternate universe. Here, Fujibayashi Kyou is the main heroine in place of Furukawa Nagisa.

Love can be wonderfully exciting, but also extremely painful. Fujibayashi Ryou, Kyou's sister, is in love with Okazaki Tomoya, the male protagonist. With the help of Kyou, Ryou manages to sum up the courage to ask him out and now Tomoya and Ryou are a couple. However, as things progress, Kyou begins to acknowledge her feelings for Tomoya, and a love-triangle is formed.

As everything is revealed, the sisters learn the pains of love and try to decide between the two loves of their life: Tomoya, or each other.

*Heartwarming end to an exceptional adaptation.*

“We can only hurt each other … because we ended up liking the same person.” – Fujibayashi Ryou

In this alternate dimension in the world of Clannad, Fujibayashi supporters will be glad to hear that their goddesses are now the main spotlight of the story. The other female characters, such as Nagisa, Tomoyo, et cetera, still exist in the story, however their lives no longer cross with Tomoya’s the way they did from the TV series (say good bye to Ushio).

Fans wishing for a new OP or at least a change in scenes/characters for the OP will be disappointed. Not read more

This was sweet, cute, and overall just really good OVA. There were no errors in sight, and it had a very touching resolution that made me smile even through the hatred that I felt towards Tomoya for ruining such a pure, innocent young girl.

In my Clannad review I spoke of how both Kyou and Ryou were both underdeveloped, and even though I feel the same way after watching this, my opinion towards them as characters has increased significantly. They are both loving family members that depend on one another and love each other more than anything that could step in between them, and really, that read more

Ever since the end of the original CLANNAD, fans of Kyou have wished to have her story arc properly animated, only to have Tomoyo's arc animated first instead. But now at the end of the highly successful sequel CLANNAD ~After Story~,the latest DVD release of After Story included an extra episode called CLANNAD ~Another World~ Kyou Chapter. This is the long awaited adaptation that the Kyou fans (me included) have wished for for a long time. Was the long wait for this worth it? read on to find out.

+ Finally we get a decent adaptation of Kyou's story arc from the original Visual Novel.

Much like last year's Tomoyo Chapter, KyoAni has gone back once more to animate the main arc of another popular girl from the visual novel Clannad, this time focusing on Kyou Fujibayashi. The Kyou Chapter is a good piece of storywork, with a solid and steady narrative flow, exceptional artwork, great BGM and performances, and decent, though generic, characterization. For now, I'd like to focus on the facts before getting to my opinion, so as to differentiate, I didn't think this was a bad little story per se, but raging Kyou fans might just be better ignoring the existence of my review when I get read more

Anime: School Days
Both Kyou and Sekai offer training the main hero with their relationships with their girlfriends.
Also, Kyou and Ryou fell for the same guy, just like Katsura and Sekai, and get hurt because of that.

Written by Shirobake and LiCha.

Both are based on a harem series and are about the main guy ending with a different girl than in the main series.
