THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Its out, its out and i could not wait so i watched the raws...

Well, Japanese lessons are paying well, as i understood 85%+ :P
Barely able to hold my tears when i saw Tomoyo crying...

I'm also glad to see Sunohara again :P I liked that he was a support (a bit) for Tomoya.
I was shocked when Tomoya told Tomoyo to break up... Her reaction... Her denial..
I dont like it when Tomoya feels down like that, he is such a good lead that you feel the impact!!!

lol at Sunohara's new look... I thought i was actually looking like Tomoya for a second... (mirror comment was funny) :P

There you go Tomoya + Tomoyo fans!!! You got your ending!!!
Next is Clannad After Story for Nagisa ending, also known as
Nagisa's Ending
;(

Now i really have to play the game... Get the translation finished please!!!

Error: Clannad ~ Tomoyo Edition has not yet aired, which means you can only set it as plan to watch. - fail

OMG lol, i can see the future :P
Today is the 16th of July, GMT +2 for me.... what timezone is the server at? :P

I love this, it managed to make my tears drop.
I was hoping the episode could have been a tiny bit longer, I don't like how it cuts off at the end.
And I'm glad to see that it's not completely taken from the game, and that it has some differences.
Anyways, now we wait for the AS...

This was both a strange and nice episode.
I missed all the other girls in this one and there were some scenes missing which I knew from spoilers ^^'
Finally it was a better than average episode I'd say.

BEAUTIFUL TEARS! So much emotions even if it is a alternate world all of it was done well enough like the TV series. I really MISSED Clannad since I watch so much anime. Yeah it was really good. Well once people remember: don't fools stop you from seeing the person you love. Try to do the "go allllll the way" to reach that person character.
Oops! I appear to be incapable of following Rules 16 and 17, so I had to have a mod change my sig for me.

Watched the raw thinking I would only get like 60%, but it was closer to 95%, thankfully all the words were familiar to me! AWESOME

This is why Tomoyo arc was the best arc in the game, plan to rewatch with subs, and rewatch when I feel like it.

It's just so beautiful, the story~

The subbers weren't that bad. D:
The quality was alright imo.

Oh well.

I was anticipating a totally different storyline. I thought it would follow the manga counterpart but I was in for a surprise. But it was still nice. Nothing much to say but it was alright. 8/10

Good episode.

I felt it kinda jumped in to fast in the whole thing at the start, it was all so sudden, and then suddenly they break it down.

But It was sad, started crying when tomoyo cried at the end.
Only 2-3 tears though.

Should've been longer.

8/10

Right. Same here.

Now for my favorite quote for these occasions:
"I almost cried, but I didn't. I'm cool like that. lol."

Hah, but all of that aside, I was kinda surprised it was a whole episode without any of the other girls. I am happy for a TomoyaxTomoyo episode, yes, but I didn't think they would cut out all of the other girls like that.
I guess it makes sense, since you only go after one girl in the game, but it still was rather... Nope, not used to it.

Also, seeing Tomoya break like that was awesome. End of ep confession was love.

A lot shorter than I was expecting, but pretty good. Considering all the extra time the credits took, they could have at least stuck in how they started dating from the game. Overall, I liked it. Tomoyo, while not my favorite, is still really cool! ^^

Not bad, came out exactly like one of Tomoyo's paths in VN. Pretty well portrayed, although seems a bit cut short. I give it a 4/5.

Just finished the subbed version. It was really great. But I think it lacked screentime. The events from the start are all to sudden, but eventually the pace gets okay. I would want to see more though.

I almost cried when Tomoyo and Tomoya where crying at the end. Great OVA 9/10

I'm not a fan of Tomoyo and out of all main routes in the game her was the most boring one but they're very nicely fitted it within a single episode.

8/10

It was pretty good. Definitely had its moments, but overall it just felt like a taste of something bigger. Also, I gotta say I wasn't happy that the only other member of the cast to show up was Sunohara. Yeah, I know the focus is on Tomoyo, but that doesn't mean the other four have to disappear off the face of the planet.

And was it just me or did the animation feel a little more amateurish than usual?

7/10. Good for what it was, but it didn't wow me.

The Engrish wasn't that bad, honestly, I've heard/seen worse. Like how they misprinted one of Shakespeare's lines in the 1st volume of Shana.

Still a lot better than the distorted syntax that Eclipse likes to use.

SS-Eclipse is imo the best group alliance out there. It's the only choice for this.


Well, nice little OVA, but I expected a bit more.

It felt rushed and the plot was not very original.

But it was still moving and with the characters we all love it can't really go wrong.

They also were very clever to use the killer song from the end of the Fuko-Arc at the end.

8/10 from me.

It was such a beautiful episode! The tears ;__; I can't wait for the After Story.

I really wanted to punch that jerk that interrupted their kiss, pulled Tomoyo away, and spilled their ice cream! -rawr- WHAT A JERK!

Was really good for just a single episode instead of an entiry series. I think they managede to include most of the nessarcry rquirment for a good Ep. Loved the ending and the pairing.

I've only watched the Clannad anime, and seeing how things worked out with Tomoyo I'm glad Tomoya ended up with Nagisa in the regular 23 episoded series. With Tomoya ending up with Tomoyo, it seemed he didn't achieve much and only managed to hold Tomoyo back, where as with Nagisa he helped her to achieve more and pushed to help her with her dreams as well as managed to make himself a better person in the process. Basically, after watching this episode it seemed evident all the more why Nagisa was the perfect choice for Tomoya.

To the episode by itself... was decent in my perspective; sad, but not enough there for any real emotion; if there was more content, then it might have been a tear jerker.
In the End, was it worth it?

I missed the music, and Tomoya and Sunohara greatly -- Tomoya especially! It was so good to see them again. I have to say, it was an interesting episode in an alternate universe, but I still think out of all the girls, Nagisa best suits him.

This makes me want the after story that much faster! ^^

It was kind of disappointing for me, and I wasn't even expecting much. I don't know. It had the same problem the movie had. Felt too rushed, and I couldn't really feel the development between Tomoyo and Tomoya. Things sorta just happened. It really felt like a summary of the whole Tomoyo arc. And this is coming from someone who's never even played the game.

Of course, given the time restraint, I guess this was the best outcome.

I actually kinda liked it. I like Tomoyo more than Nagisa, so...eh, the story for me was better.

The ending was sweet though. So overall, it was okay. ^^;
