It's amazing how you people would watch an entire series and hate on the main character's love interest. And support the ones he ignores.
Tomoyo + Kyou = worth watching even for every retarded moment involving Nagisa

The Kyou Chapter was made. I saw it. A great weight was lifted from my shoulders.

As Johnny Cash said, "I can leave this world with a satisfied mind"

You must have loved how Tomoya "walked the line" here.

Loved the episode but seeing Ryou get hurt so much was kind of heartbreaking. I still would prefer that all these girls get their own series where they get Tomoya. That's just how good KyoAni's productions are.

And while I agree that it sucks that Kyou and Ryou get each a kiss while Nagisa and Tomoyo in her ova either didn't, wasn't it heavely implied at the end of season 1 that they kissed at the end? Or do I remember it wrong? Though off screen kisses sucks / are a joke when you get your whole season as Nagisa.

Cute little episode/anecdote to completely finish the Clannad series. Kyou was always one of my favorite characters behind Tomoyo and it was nice to see a "Another World" rendition of her.

It gets an 8/10 from me with the wonderful animation and storytelling (not to mention not using "Torch" for the ED, thank god).

well, i didn't really like the story, why would tomoya go out w/ ryou if he doesn't really have feeling for her? That's true that in reality is the same thing but i don't like that....

and everything is like "predictable"...

still prefer nagisa! :)

maybe he couldn't say "no" and he might have thought.. if it was her, things wouldn't turn out to be that bad.

The eyes make the difference. ;D

Also the face is a littlle bit different. I prefer Kyou over Ryou (not only how she looks, but also her personality).

I was glad there was a kissing scene, I was very dissapointed that Tomoyo and Tomoya didn't have one.. (don't care about Nagisa)

It was alright but i didn't really like Tomoya that much in this ep because the kissing practice scene made him seem like Makoto from School Days.

Also i think Sunohara was great as always. Am i the only one who's a bit pissed that Sunohara's portrayed as the comedy side-kick? I want an arc where he gets the girls!!

They had a hard adaptation job here, and it suffered in pretty much the way I expected. It would take three or four full episodes to really capture the essence of Kyou's arc. There's tension because Tomoya realizes that Kyou likes him and that he prefers Kyou to Ryou, but he doesn't want to hurt Ryou. Ryou is fully aware of this conflict, and goes on the offensive to try to "win" her boyfriend back. She even tries desperately to change her own personality to try to be what Tomoya wants, and ultimately fails. At the same time, Kyou is conflicted because she doesn't want to hurt her sister, and rumors are flying every which way about the whole thing.

By the end of the arc, the tension in the air is almost palpable. However, without the time to build that tension, the arc loses a lot of its impact. I'm not a particularly emotional guy, but at the end of this arc in the Visual Novel, I felt like a total jerk, and at the end of this arc in the anime, I didn't really feel much.

That said, this was the best adaptation I think they could do with the time they were given to tell the story. They showed the times with Ryou passing in the background, and you could see how hard she was trying and how indifferent Tomoya felt towards her. There were a lot of moments in there that I remember clearly, and several scenes I would have liked to see acted out more fully. Considering that Ryou is one of my favorite characters, the Ryou-fest should have carried out over four episodes.

The anime failed to tell that Kyou is the reason why Tomoya accepted Ryou.
Kyou, before the confession of Ryou, told Tomoya that wouldn't it be better for him to get to know Ryou by being GF-BF instead of just friends. Tomoya was actually reluctant to accept Ryou because like he said he never thought of Ryou as a love interest but he followed Kyou's advice and so he dated Ryou to get to know her more and see if it turns out well :D.

Nagisa and Tomoyo are the perfect waifus you damned normalfags... they showed an Kyou kiss scene because she's a slut. (just kidding, no one in Clannad can be labeled like this. xD)

But I really don't like Kyou, I'd prefer Tomoya + Sunohara over Tomoya + Kyou.

Wtf, Kyou cuts her awesome long hair.

That's one of the main reasons that I'm giving this bullshit an 8 instead of a 9.

boo, if only it wasn't shortened for only one episode. the hair change/rain/asking sunohara out scenes were too altered/changed :(. they got so little time in the original clannad for kyou/ryou they should of given this 2-3 eps :(. makes me want to play through kyou's route again.

lol, why is Tomoya such a tool in these OVA paths? It was a good episode, but Tomoya's personality was too suddenly generic. But dang, this episode really reminded me of how freaking much I miss Clannad and everything about it :'(

WTF, you think it's bullshit but giving it an 8? That's why the rating is fucked up in MAL.

I don't dig these "Another World" OVA and especially when the pacing is so rushed. Kyou was my favorite character but I didn't feel a thing for her story simply because it was so rushed. I guess I'll just go buy the VN and play it myself.

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.


You took the words out of my mouth.
That was exactly the thing i wanted to say too.


Have to agree with that.

In the VA I cried 2x.

This time I didn't... It was kinda a letdown, the pacing was way off & it made me wanna start a hate Ryou club or something.

Them censoring the kisses sucked. :(

Tomoya & Kyou look so good together though. <3

I think the Tomoyo arc was a better tear jerker and Ryou had a bit too much screen time considering this is the "Kyou" arc.

Nonetheless Kyou is still one of my faves.

Kyou = epic win

Kyou w/ medium length hair = godly

I thought Kyou will be a bitch after reading the synopsis. It's a good thing she's not like Sekai of School Days.

Ryou gave way for her sister. How heroic.

Hmmm after watching all of Clannad, I can say Kyou is the best or ideal partner for Tomoya.. but still I think Nagisa path is the best.

I can't help but compare this with the tomoyo chapter and in terms of raw emotion the kyou chapter didn't compare. It was still a nice story with some surprising twists. How could you not like the episode when Sunohara is there, he stole the show once again.


It was just nice to see Clannad after a long layoff, even if it was just a tease.

It was nice, but compared to Tomoyo's, this felt extremely rushed. While they did include the main sections of Kyou's route from the VN, they still missed important bits that connected those main sections. Nonetheless, they did a good job for a 20 minute OVA.

9/10, because Kyou is so awesome :3

Yep, my thoughts exactly. It was nice to see Kyou get her spotlight and as much as I adore her, Nagisa x Tomoya is the right choice.

Would've been better if they made it a bit longer, but still pretty nicely done.
Found it really nice that Ryou gave Tomoya away to her sister.

I was a bit dissapointed, since it's Clannad and I expected a lot, but the rain scene was nicely done, and there were some nifty Sunohara moments!

Uuuhuhuhuhuu... T^T

So cut, so compressed! Goddamn the whole feeling was ruined >.< So many key parts missed, I swear to God, if I haven't played the VN I wouldn't understand a bit of it!



BUT, I'm a Kyou fangirl, brainwashed by her, so I give it a ten XD Despite all the bad things, there's one good thing - Tomoya x Kyou = WIN. I loved the scene on the bench <333 Better than the VN in my opinion <3 All hail Kyou! *goes to destroy the world cuz Kyou told her so* Must... do... what... she... tells... me... ;o

p.s.: Why you people always say "fanboys" "fanboys" "fanboys" blllaaah~
She has fangirls too! =D

I.. I wish this hadn't been condensed into just one episode. Even from just the episode I could tell that there was more to the story, much less looking here before I found a sub. If not another whole chapter, at least a few OAVs worth. It seemed like it left a lot of things hanging. I did like the scene where they showed the sisters getting along again, I would have liked it if it'd gone a step further and shown the three of them working together, even if that just meant eating lunch like they used to.

This piece also gave me my new fav quote.
"That's obvious. Date both of them."
"Can I beat you until you're motionless?"
couldn't help but laugh at that.

"How many seconds until the boy confesses his love to the girl?"

Should it be sad now that twice in a season I've been glad that subs scrolls by to quickly for me to process?

thank god for that, that song annoyed the crap out of me. Way to ruin the ending mood, Fuuko's legs.

BEAUTIFUL... For the measley 23 minutes they had to do this, I'd say it turned out amazingly well. Kyou is just friggin amazing, I was waiting for so long for this to come out! Great great stuff... I will sorely miss clannad :,(

Also, Ana is an amaaaaazing song... Love how they put that at the end, with the synth solo... Pure beauty.

That was really nice. Didn't see the hair cut coming, really nice final Clannad episode.

There was also another bright moment for Sunohara, heh. At the end I noticed a bit of Nagisa in Kyou, which was great, too.

9/10

Although I had already played through the Ryou-Kyou arcs already in the Clannad game, I still enjoyed it quite a bit (although I'm pretty biased). The first thing that stunned me the most though was the animation- I haven't watched Clannad since it finished, nor any of the widescreen versions, so I was just 'wowwing' throughout most of the episode.

There are lots of great scenes in the episode. This made me laugh quite a bit though:



Going to miss Clannad :(

Great episode. The presentation of it turned out like I expected. People should have anticipated how things were gonna be like considering they've already experience the Tomoyo version.

The development of Kyou and Ryou were quite interesting. And I must say that I loved Sunohara in this episode. He really fit in great.

Overall, it gets an 8 from me.
