7/10, while Tomoya's is a 9/10. While it was a good ep, i just didn't think it was amazing or anything.

9/10 for me, although i didnt feel as emotionally attached to this ova, unlike the tomoyo one, most likely because this one was much much more crammed than the other one (even though the other one was wayy crammed as well haha), thus less time to spend on developing relationships etc. At least the first ova only had tomoya and tomoyo, but this one had technically two relationships, ryou + tomoya, kyou + tomoya, and i think was less emotional primarily because there was hardly and kyou+tomoya at all until the end

It was so refreshing and nostalgic to watch this OVA. It feels like it was a long time ago when I watched Clannad After story and I missed the series so much. But now I've felt those emotions that I had at that time and it was so right...

The animation was splendid as always and it was good to hear the op song again...

I think it was right although I don't know the visual novel...

Does this spoil anything from After Story?

Currently watching After Story, and wondering if I should complete it before watching this.

Lol, no need to worry. Heck,it doesn't even connect to After Story at all..


Wasn't really good as Tomoyo's OVA IMO but still gets a solid 8 from me.

9/10 cause it's Kyou!

Damn, she was so cute at the end.
Good, but Kyou deserves more than just an OVA special :(

I'm mad over the fact it had a Kyou AND a Ryou kiss and we never got to see him kiss Nagisa.

Seriously....

7/10 from me.

Tomoyo is still better but I say 9/10 just like the rest of the series and the Tomoyo chapter. I expected it to be slightly rushed, and it didn't fail my expectations, but nonetheless deserves a docking of 1 point partially cuz of that.

I always love to see love triangle stories where twins are involved. Uh, can't actually remember the last time I did see one though.
So then, I'll talk about the rain: Why is it always used in drama? Personally, I don't really associate the rain with gloominess.
Rain aside, they really like playing with that insert song, don't they?

QFT

I think that was only cuz' they wanted to trim down the length of the video to 24 minutes.


That's precisely the fantasy of all guys.

I haven't played the game but this felt very rushed, anyway I enjoyed seeing Tomoya, Sunohara and the twins again. The scene in the rain was really sweet but it didn't impact me like Nagisa's or Tomoyo's. I was entertained for the most part and am extremely sad that this is most likely the end of anything Clannad related.

Oh yes Kyou towards the end looked adorable. 8/10

Very enjoyable OVA but it felt incredibly rushed like others have mentioned. I haven't played the VN so that is just off of my impression of the OVA as well... so that says a lot. Also, it seemed kind of weird to have an OVA dedicated to Kyou yet she gets a very limited amount of screen time... but it also felt right imo to have it that way to have more of an impact when Tomoya confessed to Kyou( and ultimately ended up with Kyou)... I'm so conflicted with a decent rating. Overall a very sweet and enjoyable OVA but could of been made a bit longer to add more "story/development" and give it more of a complete feeling. 8/10

Every time that OP comes up all this shit (not a bad thing) comes back to me lol. I have to say I liked the VN's better but seeing this animated was great, duuude Kyou-hime-sama rawr 10/10. Happy too that the ED didn't pop up and raep the ass.

Dam, they should have made more episode on it. Its too rushed!!

They skipped it ALL the way to Ryou's asking Tomoya out! It feels like a lot of things are missing! No bike scene, no scene of Kyou trying to catch Tomoya for Ryou, and they really cut out a big chunk of the part on kissing practice.

Wheres the tarot cards? The amethyst ring? The lunch scene?? They didn't even included the first kiss scene with Ryou (those who have the VN should know). Many details were missed out... But on the other hand, the Kyou's Rain scene was potrayed well, I liked it, although short, but it does did justice. Despite the fact the scene wasn't suppose to take place on a holiday (in VN it was during school time =).

The finale part when Kyou cuts her hair comes too suddenly. I don't really like, the music accompanied by it IMO, comes too late, it comes earlier in VN, which I think really adds in a lot of emotion. Despite that, the very last part when Kyou kissed Tomoya, really DID justice. At least saw something much more satisfying part on the finale. Overall I'm quite satisfied, although I may have a bit of loss memory since I last watched Clannad like three months ago..

Not bad! But really... too rushed at the beginning! X_x

this was going way too fast, it took me about 4 hrs just to play a day of the visual novel =.= and that was just the confession


Haha lmao, I remember it took ages for 1 scene to progress. Lets take the kissing practice for example, lasts about 3 mins in the episode, but in fact lasted more than 30 mins in the VN if you follow up with all the voice.

No, its not winter, in VN this took place during May, I think the summer uniform was not introduced in the VN.

I was extremely satisfied with this Kyou chapter since this one have Kyou and Ryou’s interesting development. However, I felt that Tomoyo chapter is much better than Kyou chapter. It was obviously that Kyou chapter rushed a bit, but this wasn’t bad. The animation was beautiful as always. Short haired Kyou was cute. I was sad that Clannad was finally over, but I have VN game to play, at least.

It was okay, the Tomoyo chapter was a lot better though. Although it had the overall feeling, the Tomoyo ova just felt better implemented and paced, especially the final scene.

Yep. Don't know why everyone's still giving this 9's and 10's; it's an 8 for me. I thought it'd be better - for once clannad disappointed me .

I actually didn't think this OVA was that bad. I thought it would be similar to Tomoyo's World but it seems different. I didn't expect Ryou to confess though. Kyou was acting quite different than the actual anime. She doesn't seem more energetic and such =P

Much more better than Tomoyo Chapter - it's not because I like Kyou more (in visual novel Tomoyo was my number 1) it's because this chapter has been created in better way - instead of putting in episode, few randomly choosen fragments of her route from game, we can see only ending of Kyou&Ryou arc. imo - great -_o

Actually its unavoidable, especially the kissing practice, although they didn't kiss, but yeah you got the idea xD

In the VN Ryou and Tomoya kissed more than 3 times I think, with Kyou about 2 times. Damn Tomoya, why are you so lucky!?

They left out a lot of stuff from the game but seeing as this is still my favorite arc in the game I loved the episode.

9/10 cause Kyou's my fav Clannad girl and I felt this story did her character justice. I really empathized with her when she was being depressed about Tomoyo and moping around the street. Very nice ep and it's great to see Clannad back!

Only one comment.
Most of Sunohara's awesomness was cutted when adpted.

I mean, Sunohara plays a huge role on Kyou's route, but in this adptation, he only mutters a few words and leave at that.

Sure, thats thanks to time issues, and stuff, and i'm surely not being fair here, but thatnks to that litte detail, i'm only giving it a 9.

Heh, even seeing that story for the third time, i never got bored from it.

Too bad no big-shot in Key decided to do a Kyou After game. *sigh*
Oh well, i still can have my Tomoyo After, after all. lol

Note on the ending: Of course they wouldn't use Torch.
It would have absolutly nothing to do with Kyou After, after all, (This is getting repetitive lol) in KA Tomoya never went to live on Nagisa's house, and surely didn't even interact much with her.

It's much better than Tomoyo's Arc.

Just pointing out some stuff..
First, Tomoyo's arc is better ;_; (in my opinion : p)
Second, another difference is that they have differently colored eyes, if you didn't notice. Kyou's got somewhat purpl-ish eyes, while Ryou's eyes are blu-ish. (In the visual novel, amethyst and tanzanite have close similarity to their eyecolors : p *winkwink*)
And the reason why Kyou cut her hair.. No never mind, I'm not going to get into that now, you'll see when you play the visual novel : p (If you didn't happen to be sacrastic)

(oh and on a funny side note, I didn't know Kyou's seiyuu was named Ryou xD)
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.
