THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
That moment was just so touching. Tomoya recalling his memories with Nagisa in the train was too.
Dang it feels great to see them finally getting together >///<
Tbh, I wouldn't have any complains even if this is the final episode. It is just so epic that even sweat is coming out from my eyes.
The best espisode of After Story yet! I can't believe they left this part out of the movie. It's even more upsetting than her death. I cried!
Tomoya's also easier to sympathise with than he is in the movie; he didn't do a lot in the "present" in the movie.
Lirael said: ... It's even more upsetting than her death. I cried! ...
I wouldn't say upsetting, but instead I'd say it is more moving. I admit I teared up.
But was I the only one who thought the way Tomoya reacted to discovering that he was talking to his grandma was a tad bit subdued? Anyway, after hearing the grandma's story, I want to rescind my opinion of Naoyuki being a horrible father. Hopefully Tomoya can be a more responsible parent like his dad was, minus the drinking and abuse of course.
Oh yes, and here's my mandatory "Ushio is soo cute" to help meet quota.
Unbelievable. They made me cry again. This show has done that twice in 3 episodes, probably as many times as I have cried in the last 2,000 episodes of anime I have watched. Honestly, they could have stretched the last couple episodes out a little and ended the series and I would be completely fine with it.
This episode was so touching. I can't remember the last time I cried at an anime that touched me rather than saddened me. This episode was beautifully done in all aspects: the artwork, voices, music, writing, everything was superb.
When Ushio said she wanted to find the robot because it was the first thing papa bought for her, my eyes teared up. When Ushio said Sanae said she could only cry in the bathroom or in papas arms, the tears rolled down. When Tomoya was reminiscing about Nagisa, I balled my eyes out.
The reminiscing was probably the greatest drawn scene of all of Clannad. It was made all the more sadder because to me, it felt like it was the first time Tomoya cried after Nagisa died. I mean, sure he got depressed, but I think he was just too lifeless to cry. Something tells me from this point on, I'm gonna cry for every episode.
Every episode of After Story keeps getting better and better. This season beats the first by a long shot.
This episode was by far the best one. Ushio is so freakin cute, I wanna take her home with me. I love her "I did it on my own" quote. Her tone, and voice is just adorable. I can't believe how emotional it was when Tomoya started remembering Nagisa. That short moment made my eyes tear up a bit, and made me feel like crying.
omg! this was the best one ever! i wsa crying when Ushigo said the only places she could cry were in the bathroom and in daddy's arms. that was the sweetest thing i have ever heard. and when he was thinking about nagisa i was crying. there were so many good parts in this ep. the art was so beautiful too. i just loved it.
I thought that the drama ended when Ushio Hugged her dad like that and started crying.
But inside of me i saw that as a happy moment. Like the things will only get better now, no more tears.
But Tomoya crying for Nagisa was heartbreaking...
Its not about the future anymore. It was about a sad past that cant be undone.The person that changed him, made him love,think,act and become the person he is now doesnt exist anymore... I really thought that the tears Tomoya shed there were pretty unique and "true" if you can get what i mean.
By the way dont tell me that Nagisa is living through Ushio or at Tomoya heart or something. A dead person cant be replaced by anyone and Tomoya Will ALWAYS have a huge unfilled gap in his heart that Ushio and all his friends will never manage to fill.
Wow. I haven't cried to truthfully and from deep down in quite a while. AMAZING.
Finally Tomoya has overcome his grief and sees his beautiful daughter and his aim in life in front of him!!
Ah the many tissues I used from joys of happiness, and a bit of sadness as well.
Is it legal for a anime to be this good? This must be some sort of terrorist attack on us anime fans, make us all cry so much we can't see the invasion.
But in all seriousness, this is the only anime where I have felt such a deep bond for the characters, and have felt so... strongly when watching it. Even just walking around, or looking at something seems like a epic moment in this anime.
