THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The quality of the episode was as high as the rest of the TV series. The episode's directing however, felt a bit too rushed (though they only have one episode to adapt this.) I believe a few more scenes with Ryou earlier would have made things more effective, but it was still a pretty good adaption of the game.

Also, I'm glad they didn't decide to use TORCH as the ED again.

9/10

Im not going to lie....I was a little let down with this....a lot of the key elements where either omitted or somehow changed....*sigh* The rain scene was not as great as in the VN and neither was the hair switch....oh well...this should have been at least 40 min to be good, Im giving this 8/10...this was my fav arc in the VN too... ;_;

Is it me, or does Tomoya look really cool right here.

I was extremely satisfied with the presentation. Well, anything that was Clannad would make me happy, but still! I thought that the necklace date would have been put in somewhere, but I guess it really didn't matter too much, or at least contribute to the ending in any way.

They condensed it beautifully, and yes, no TORCH was a good thing. <3
I'm just sad that this might as well be the end of seeing Clannad extras. The only thing even plausible is Kappei... but... must... kill...

... This route is my favorite in the VN, this episode was like super rushed... they need at least 3 episodes to explain this whole story... 1 episode is just not enough... though they did add some important scenes.
8/10 for being super rushed and i'm disappointed

It was great to see the OP once again, and like others said, this is probably the last we'll see of Clannad..

23 minutes is definitely too short, would have been nice to keep the CLANNAD spirit going on a little longer by spreading it over 2 eps or more, but I guess that wouldn't be fair to Tomoyo..

Still not sure what to rate this.

Amazing as always since it's Clannad. And lol at the two kisses, since we haven't seen any in the main story.
Clannad is really over now, huh?

I felt like it wouldn't have made a lot of sense if I hadn't read the VN beforehand. They should've given it at least two episodes, they ended up skipping too much for my liking.

Awesome as always. Since I didn't played Clannad VN I didn't really care that it was cut. Though, I'd like to see more than one episode of this goddess (yeah, clannad tard). :)

Overall, 8,6 for this OVA

Don't say it. (;_;)

Btw, I've watched subbed version. Just downloaded RAW and ass file.

To be honest, despite the fact that the story was kinda squished in a 24 minute frame (well it was kinda a given), it definitely is good. I never would've thought Butan would be there for the scene where Tomoya found Kyou in the rain. A solid 9/10.

Oh man, this can't felt to be more rushed..
Given that they only had one episode to work it out, this is not a bad adoption, more eps would have helped greatly though.

Just watched Chinese subs (they surely came out quick).

I don't have much to say, but there is a lot to cover within just one episode. Nevertheless I think they did it well enough there, and overall it looks quite solemn until the end bit.

Since I've still yet to play the VN, I can make a not-influenced judgement.
For me it was clearly better than the Tomoyo OVA, even when this one had no real tear-scene.
They managed to pack more love story in 24 min than most love story anime in 24 episodes.

Sunohara was really awesome again in this one. But I so knew that he would say "I would take both". ^^

I am more than content with this: 8/10

Too bad animated Clannad is over now, but I still have the VN to look forward to.

I was curious and watched the raws. The episode sorrily contains some unfavorable changes, like:

Overall everything is shortened and compressed and it really reduced a bit from it's value.But overall it's good.
Question to VN players. Who thinks that Kyou can save Tomoya, like Nagisa or Tomoyo(with many efforts in Tomoyo After)?

Loved every moment of it, though I think the animators went lazy, the rain scene wasn't as epic as I thought it would be. ><

Compared to the VN, this was a major disappointment. Should've given Kyou a full arc in the main series rather than an OVA special.

5/10

Loved every moment of this OVA. Poor Ryou, but still Kyou is most suitable for Tomoya.

They always hesitate to show kisses, but the rest of the episode was good, I agree that we need 40 minutes to explain it all.
I give 9/10.

I haven't read the VN, but this episode still felt rushed (a lot).

I think they should've split this OVA into at least 2 episodes, if not 3.

But still, it had Kyou in it so 10/10.
(Kyou-ism! ^_^)

Predictable, but still good...
...and am I the only one who love the TomoyaxYuuhei in this? xD

At the part where Yuuhei was talking to Tomoya about having a clean life... and about how both of them are lacking ability...am I the only one who saw that as a TomoyaxYuuhei moment, as in Yuuhei was like "DONT DATE THEM THEY LACK, DATE ME INSTEAD"? LOL. I think too hard for everything. Ignore me. *whistles*

I really really loved it! Even though it was kinda short, the arc was great. The story was nice, kinda predictable, it was obvious that it's going to be a story with her sister and the love of the sisters to Tomoya.

Oh god. I loved every single moment of this OVA. Although as mentioned before it did feel a bit rushed, it was amazing nonetheless.

Even though I have already had to accept we wouldn't see Kyou anymore since about halfway through After Story untill the OVA had been green-lit, I can't believe this really is the end and I won't see my overall favorite anime character again once more. I'm glad I didn't start playing the Visual Novel before this came out, but it looks like I will really have to hurry up doing so now though. Luckily I've still got something to look forward to. =)

This OVA gets a solid 10/10 from me.

Not really....the hardcore feverish Clannad fanboys will rate it 10/10 even if they had taken the arc and turned it into an ecchi comedy. XD

Four, actually (if you count Sunohara's and the first one between Tomoya and Kyou)
btw, this is an episode discussion; no need to use spoiler tags.

Far to many scenes were cut out from the arc.

It was okay. It was predictable and most of the episode Tomoya was with Ryou. I think I would've liked it better if I got to see Kyou with Tomoya longer, they we're only together at the end.
I like the Tomoyo chapter better, but this wasn't bad.
