This. This. And this.
Sorry I quote all of what wheatleyscience9 wrote, but I agree with him in like 99%. Kyou's my favourite, just ahead of Tomoyo, so I kinda regret this episode is not so well developed compared to Tomoyo's OVA. I knew it was going to be somewhat strange seeing the first scene and Ryou's confession. The creators probably would do Kyou more justice if they did separate episodes for the two sisters but then again Ryou has been a marginal character throughout all the series, so yeah... And this is exactly why I don't feel my thirst for Kyou has been quenched lol. She totally deserved more airtime. At least the same Tomoyo received. Otherwise it all feels pretty rushed.

But the biggest WTF moment award goes to Kyou's hair being cut! I was like NOOOOOO!!!1!!11

Other than that I really appreciate the two OVAs since the two girls are way more interesting and appealing than Nagisa IMO.

Haha couldn't agree more, considering Kyou actually has flair in her personality and is interesting to watch, she gets nothing close to what she deserves. At least Tomoyo has the after visual novel which adds a bit of depth to that which is nice, Kyou however gets no more than the one OVA which isn't even fully centred on her :(

Tomoya is kinda a nub. I would've stuck with Ryou just because of the realization that if I picked Kyou, there would come a point where she would become comfortable enough in the relationship to beat my ass every time I did something she didn't like. Tomoya must be a masochist or something.

I really loved, same quality as Tomoyo route. Weirdly, Ryou and Kyou didn't seem to have the same personallity and relationship than in the original story. But anyway, I guess it make thing more interesting. Man, Clannad is always so close to finish in an harem xD

Themselves, Sunohara. Themselves.

What a painful love triangle. Brimming with wistful brilliance. I loved the little symbolic details; like those gray rainy days and the transition from wisteria flowers to hydrangeas. ;_; A love-lost heart endured the hardships and grew from falling teardrops, thankful of both good and bad things. Sincerely heartfelt.

Ah, Clannad is over now… ;w;
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

Well...since I like Nagisa (although Kyou is really cool and funny), this episode was only ok for me. It has the Clannad quality but I just personally prefer Tomoya and Nagisa as a couple.

I'm actually glad Kyou didn't have a visual novel, because if she did, it would probably be an ero like Tomo-pyon's was.

Great OVA! I don't know if anyone is with me on this, but, I like to see what it would be like if Kyou and Sunohara were together, I think that would be interesting!
10 out of 10.

Yes that would be funny, but now, (even though I'd still like to see that, just to see how it would turn out) I kinda disagree with myself. I DID like the OVA, it was good don't get me wrong, but I would rather see Kyou...WITH ME!!!

This was terrible, lol. It just felt so wrong seeing him with anyone but Nagisa. I watched Tomoyo's special before I started AF so I think that might have been why I liked it so much. This was nothing more than an average 5/10.

Even though Kyou seemed very suitable to Tomoya in the series, I felt that the Tomoyo Chapter OVA was executed a lot better than this one.

Initially, I had hoped that this OVA would be about a relationship developing between Tomoya and Kyou after Nagisa's death or perhaps as Ushio starts kindergarten. That really would have been more interesting and more emotional.

I remember watching this. Tons of drama for an OVA, but still not as good as Tomoyo's.

Both specials featuring Kyou and Tomoyo routes are really nice but reveal how hard is it to adapt visual novels well. In my opinion they did that pretty good and pleased the fans of the other girls with specials. Great job, I'm going to miss Clannad and the characters.

I don't like Kyou x Tomoya , but the plot is good, it just lacked more time, it could be 8/10 if this flaw is absent.

Didn't really like this special because he spent more time with Ryou and yet he had feelings with Kyou and we don't really know how this came to be.

Well, I can safely say I like this alternate universe Kyou over the in-verse Kyou. She's not as unlikable and annoying as the Kyou we know from the first 2 seasons, if you ask me.

It's always nice to see the other side of Sunohara.

I have seen the visual novel for Kyou route ..still only first half and it's really great.

i liked this OVA.
Tho Can't believe that they showed Ryou and Kyou kissing Tomoya in just 1 episode, While not showing a single kiss between Tomoya and Nagisa for a whole 2 seasons lol.


4/5

I'm honesly quite surprised they manage to fit it into one episode even though it was bad.

She's probably my favourite heroine of this series. But they really rushed this arc, like in case of Tomoyo OVA who was pretty non-character in the original series (I honestly urge you to play Tomoyo After as that's maybe even better than whole Clannad).

But back to Kyou... in the novel the scene with cut hair was situated outside under the tree with setting sun playing tricks on Tomoya's eyes and I think it worked a lot better. They also pretty much skipped most of Ryou dating parts and didn't even mentioned who she ended with in the future (whole Kappei arc was omitted from the anime).

Still, I kinda enjoyed it as Kyou is the one girl who understands Tomoya the best. She's not the best girl (Tomoyo is) but at the same time she is the best fit for him. I'm still kinda sad that Afterstory didn't ended with her dating Tomoya after Nagisa's death, that would be the greatest ending ever, emphasizing the the life goes on and that even sad things could turn into something better. Well, well.

Just watched this again, execution is neat, sound and background music is good, they play them at the right moment. Art is solid, not the best but still captivating (except for the damn big eye). I really enjoy the rain scene in fact, though they made it a bit different from the VN. The only problem is just as many people stated, rush, we don't know what's on Tomoya's mind whenever he is with Ryou untill the late game, and most of all, the build-up before the confession at the beginning is also very important, yet they cut it all out (can't be helped since it's only 24 minute). But i'm fine with this, it's nice to watch something that remind me of school days XD. 6/10.

I feel bad for Ryou q_q

Pretty solid episode, although I can't really approve Tomoya's actions at the start, bro Sunohara with the advices.

Is it just me or did they abandon calling Ryou by her name in the dub LOL. I might be mishearing it, but for both of the After Story OVAs it sounds like they're saying Yo.

Meh, it was fine, but I wasn't that great. I'm not so much into highschool romantic comedies so all of this feels kinda empty to me. Also, Tomoya and Kyou had little to no screentime as a couple, what's with that?

6/10

It was fine, but nothing special. If there weren't elements such as: beautiful art, very good music, professionally directed scenes and that Clannad-like atmosphere, I would give it 6/10. Instead of it, my score for Kyou-hen is gonna be 7/10.

The main problem with this OVA is its shortness I think. Sure, it was good if we look on it as for alternate ending packed in one episode, but this episode's potential could be easily used in two OVAs instead of one. By it the story could feel way more realistic and less naive, but as I said before - judging on the length of this alternate evening's episode, everything was executed pretty fine, without a rush.

I still feel like this should've been the true ending, by which I mean he should've married Kyou as his 2nd wife after Nagisa died.

Well, that was pretty boring honestly. Cool alternate setting. However, those two are my least favorite characters, and I believe they have next to no depth in their characters.

Kyou is probably my favourite character besides Nagisa and the girl I would've wanted to end up with Tomoya if Nagisa hadn't been there so I was really looking forward to seeing this episode (not a VN player).

But I'm honestly let down. I didn't really like the story or the conflict between the two sisters. The story feels like a more generic love story and nothing really special. And I kinda dislike how those two (Tomoya and Kyou) for a time basically go behind Ryou's back despite the fact that it was Tomoya and Ryou who were dating. Also didn't like how it seemed like Ryou was a manipulative person when she said that she asked how to get closer with Tomoya to her sister because she knew Kyou would answer that.

So yeah, kinda disappointed. But at least got a lot of scenes where Kyou was just too cute.

This is really the last of Clannad, huh? What a shame. Wouldn't have minded another season of 24 episodes of the After Story of After Story to be honest.

Great series. Loved it. Wished it was longer. Won't ever forget.
