It's okay if it makes sense. Even if it is a total surprise, as long as it doesn't feel completely random and unnatural.
But when it doesn't it's just retarded. That's one of the reasons why I disliked Clannad AS after ep 16 or 17 or whenever.

Well it's a H-VN but I still enjoyed it a lot, in shion when


I personally think they're great, so long as it isn't a wtf moment that makes no logical sense. So long as it contributes to the plot constructively, I Find them nice- especially when they're used to conclude a storyline.

Really, I'm surprised.....

....that no one has mentioned Katanagatari yet.

If anything, that goes at the top of the list.

For those who haven't seen it, I recommend you do.

School Days…. When you watch the first 4 episode it seems like normal school life/romance anime, then when the protagonist start 2 timing…. Well the plot turns realyyyyyy bad.

I find that this kind of stuff is going on in Guilty Crown, if anyone is keeping track of the show. But now its just rolling down a hill sorta.

How doesn't it make sense if


I can't help but think that your reason of disliking Clannad~AS~ is because of your preference of storyline.

I HATE when this happens, especially if the entire show went on with nothing really ever going terrible wrong, then BAM, fucking hit by a truck. Dies.


School Days. Went from meh-ing the show to hate it.

That wasn't anywhere near enough to hint at such a random twist in my book, sorry. And even if it was, it would still be a terrible, terrible, terrible twist. Same shit happened in Mai Hime, and while it was a lot more plausible there (the whole show being about magical monsters and whatnot), that didn't make it any less terrible.

So yea, I prefer stories without these kind of crappy low-level twists. If they're going to pull a deus ex machina, they should at least try to camouflage it and fit it into the story a bit better, and not...

Thing is, I remember Akio mentioned something when Nagisa was young and got very sick. I don't remember if he mentioned anything about orbs though. There was this whole other business with the other world and stuff... which I didn't pay much attention on.

Regardless if these dragonballs were hinted at or not, the very essence of the idea is ridiculous.

Though I must admit that the strongest impact was...don't ask me why I still didn't figure it out, though somehow it managed to beat up even Clannad.
