which ova do you prefer or think is more superior?

I loved them both more than clannad itself but I think I like kyou's chapter a tiny bit more than tomoyos

I like Kyou better but I felt that the Kyou OVA was lacking.
It was less Kyou x Tomoya and more the events leading up to it. While the Tomoyo OVA was Tomoyo x Tomoya from the very start.

I would have liked to see more of the actual relationship, is what I'm trying to say.

Yeah, in Kyou Chapter there was move Ryou than Kyou, but all in all, I like Kyou's a bit more. Both are great though.

I prefer Kyuo over Tomoyo (character).

As for the story they showed i liked the one from Tomoyo better since they were more connected in the story, Kyuo's story was to much of Ryuo, I would have liked if they showed more Kyou + Tomoya moments than the ending only.

Story = Tomoyo over Kyou
Character = Kyou over Tomoyo

Well, I liked,

Nagisa End then Tomoyo End then Kyou End

I dunno, Kyou's was just kinda... Weird. It felt a little over the top and like it was too much.

I loved Tomoyo's chapter it made me cry. Kyou's didn't, but it was still good.

So I voted for Tomoyo since she is my favorite girl in Clannad.

Late reply is late, but I'm probably the only one who really despises Kyou, so I loved Tomoyo's chapter. Plus, looking at it in a non-biased way, the Tomoyo one was a bit more developed.

I voted Kyou, they were, unfortunately, my two least favorite characters, so I didn't really connect with them (they annoyed me really, I'm the person who just wants the hero and heroine to get together, otherwise it's just wrong. Nagisa would never find love if not for tomoya), Tomoyo, for whatever reason, irritated me throughout the whole series, she was the only character I disliked (I really can't fathom why myself), thus I of course liked Kyou's more.

Kyou > Tomoyo, and then came these OVA...
Both offered a unique love scenario, but the self sacrifice in Tomoyo's won my vote.
Also, Kyou in short hair... notsureifwant...

I played through the actual VN once and ended up going with Kyou (partially because I really liked some of the scenes in this OVA) and it's really a shame a lot of you are putting this down because of something that simply couldn't be helped. There is a LOT of dialogue between Tomoya and Kyou and it simply had to be condensed so much that it comes off as a little "lacking" in this OVA. Nonetheless, I really liked it and thought the rain scene was very well done!

It's all about preference. I personally enjoyed the Tomoyo chapter more, but Kyou's chapter was also great! I really wish there was more! :D

Kyou is my favorite character and I was expecting a lot from her chapter, but I'll have to admit that Tomoyo's chapter was better.

Tomoyo's chapter was actually better than I expected, the ending was very much to my liking, it was very touching :) The episode truly had what it was supposed to have: a good story of Tomoya and Tomoyo :)

As for Kyou's chapter, I was slightly disappointed. The let down was even bigger because Kyou is my favorite. I already pretty much knew it would be like this, but the focus was still too much on Ryou, I wanted more Tomoya x Kyou :<
The ending part should have been longer and deeper, now it ended up quite awkward and rushed.

Both of the special episodes would've deserved a 2-4 episodes long OVA. I gave Tomoyo's arc 9/10 and Kyou's arc 8/10.

Tomoyo was my favorite Clannad girl so yeah, I liked the Tomoyo chapter better! lol. It seemed like a more real dilemma that an actual couple could face to me.

Except for the fact they had no chemistry. Think for a second one simple reason why Tomoyo would get chummy with a bum without a goal. In fact, it's pretty uch established backstory that Tomoyo's favorite pastime was to KICK THE ASSES OUT OF THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE. So yeah, there's so little for that relationship to hang on to as to be almost non-existant. And if you actually see the parts KyooAni skimmed over you'd realized Tomoya never really proves himself to have a good heart or to not practice what he preached. He was basically a lecherous bum through most of his time, the only things he did for Tomoyo were taking the suspension instead of her (which he should do anyway as it was his and Sonohara's fault the gangsters followed Tomoyo to school) and helping Tomoyo win the election, and that was only to fix a situation he also help to create (she had created a bad rep for hanging out with Tomoya among other things).

So yeah, I like how their dilemma at the end was indeed pretty realistic, but the begginning was just, out of character. Getting them together requires them to be completely out of character, in a worse way than Kyou's dilemma (at least in Kyou's chapter the whole problem stems from Tomoya entering a relationship without actually being 100% sure and then realizing that whatever he did from then on would hurt someone, which he doesnt likes to do).

Honestly, I prefer the Kyou chapter. Not because I prefer Kyou to Tomoyo, but just because of I liked how both the sisters liked him & all that.

If I could choose the original as my favorite though, I would. Nagisa x Tomoyo forever. <3

Tomoyo's chapter is by far superior. She had a story behind hers and the ending to it was very sad. I like Kyou as a character but her chapter wasn't that well done as Tomoyo's. It was done much better in the VN. I also think Tomoyo is a better character as she has an ambition to reach and she and Tomoya have the best relationship. Leon-Gun is totally wrong in saying they have no chemistry.

I already wrote my opinion on this in the comment section of Kyou's episode, so I'll be short here. Preference-wise it's Kyou>Tomoyo for me, but as far as the actual OVAs go, it's Tomoyo OVA>Kyou OVA.

I'm not really into visual novels, but I guess I have no choice but to get this one to see some more Kyou time :3. I hope you can skip Nagisa entirely in the VN...

Tomoyo all the way. I thought her story was better too. Kyou's had too much Ryou in it. Although, both made me depressed af, even though they were both happy endings. Although, Kyou's chapter had a kiss...

Tomoyo >>>> Kyou, but Kyou's chapter is actually better (albeit marginally). Looks like that is a minority opinion.

People argue that it had too much Ryou in it, but that is exactly WHY it's better. Not only does the love triangle aspect give it an extra dimension, but it shows Kyou in a state of weakness - something rarely seen out of her otherwise. Plus that scene where Ryou offered to change herself for Tomoya hit pretty hard.

Anyway, both OVAs are great. The Tomoyo chapter made me cry and this one didn't, so it's still pretty damn close.

I agree completely with both these reviews. Kyou was my favorite hands down but her chapter kind of left me yelling at my screen. I hated how she cut her hair though it was a good trick, I just cant see her without the long hair.
On the other hand the Tomoyo chapter was a beautiful story that ended amazingly but I never really connected with Tomoyo like I did with Kyou.

I doubt it's ever going to happen though since her route was mostly covered in season one (I've finished her route in the Clannad VN) but i would love to see it if it ever happens (since she's my fave girl)

i would say kyou's ova was better,because tomoyo in her ova seemed that she's not her at all,that's not the tomoyo that we know in the anime,second,there's no chemistry between tomoya and tomoyo,i suggest sunohara to ship him tomoyo,if they are couple it would be very cute..

Tomoyo's OVA was waaay intensive. It was more emotional. Well, for me atleast, because I actually saw myself in Okazaki in this episode. The way they broke up and then reunited was beautiful. ^_^

I freakin' love Kyou, but this chapter made me mad. I just hate the thought of cheating on Ryou. Leaving her for Kyou was sickening. Especially because they are twins. Anyway, I'm a guy, so I'm a rookie on romance seas, people probably liked this better because of the complication.

I really recommend doing so ^.^ it's better than Tomoyo and Kyou and Nagisa together, but there is not so much new things in VN in any route. They put almost everything from every route of VN into anime :(

I personally like both chapters, but have to side with Kyou.

1) Because I personally like her more.

2) Because I feel, out of all the girls Tomoya interacts with, Tomoyo is the least suited/compatible with him if you think practically for the long-term. She's a world-changer, Tomoya is paint as being content with a very simple life. Even though she gives up her dream for him (which is very touching).....that doesn't leave her personality. She will be restless as the years go by and it will strain on them. All this to say, Kyou melds much more with Tomoya and they would better each other's lives more without sacrifice of who they are/their drives.

Although I like Kyou more, I prefer the special between Tomoya and Tomoyo.
Felt like this special was bland as I have already experienced something similar in the anime. Idk, I felt like this special was forced and there wasn't really any character development. The awkward love triangle bothers me.
Tomoyo's on the other hand, left a bigger impact on me and I think the two main characters as well.

Tomoyo's arc was better (and so is Tomoyo after) but I still like Kyou the most as a character out of all heroines. She has this 'girl next door' feel and she's also the best girl to have by your side.
