Was really good, it amazed me how they could do it on one episode, Kyo/Ani once more; fucking awesome, no matter what Clannad episode is it always bring a tear to my eye. However it wasn't -In my opinion- as good as Tomoyo Chapter. Sorry but that Rain scene wasn't that fucking Epic as the Snow one. The Ice cream on the bench can't be compared. Really.

8/10 for me. It was definetly fucking good.

no. tomoyo chapter was by far better - with the same amount of time

Some good parts were missing


best parts are missing, and best moments remaked.

i've played Clannad, and imho Kyou / Ryou arcs were the best of da best.

weaker than tomoyo chapter. fail :*(

Haha, awesome.

When okazaki agreed to go out with Ryou I thought "Wait, did I mix them up again.. could've sworn the other one was Kyou", but I didn't mess up :)

Then in the park I got big-time School Days flashbacks and a big grin ("Tengoku no okaa-san, please deliver some quality axemurdering in clannad this time" </inner monologue>).

I was hoping Kyou would off herself the whole time, now that would be entertainment (I don't like her, everyone is so obsessed with Kyou when Nagisa is clearly superior ! (That, and I'm a big sadist))

Didn't like the ending... needs more severed heads.

Tomoya is a f*****., any REAL man would had manipulated the twins and fucked both of them behind their backs.

More proof that Clannad is for limp handed effeminate manwomen.

I have liked it enough, Kyou is my favorite character and I have not been upset with this arc by no means, though I there was the well-read one the route in the VN

Also I felt a sorrow for Ryou, but I conform that has not appeared Nagisa xD.

Without doubting it, 10/10

i probably wouldn't enjoy them quite as much if i wasn't constantly irritated by nagisa's petty hand-wringing.

It's great, I'm satisfied, and the world has once more become a happy with the return of Clannad... Kind of. But it's still awesome. Now I can't wait for a Kotomi Chapter.

Well I just finished watching Kyou's Chapter and I must say it was really good, as excepted of course. Though it felt like it was being rushed, just like when they did Tomoyo's Chapter but point is Kyou's Arc was finally animated.

There were two things that I did not like though. First, Kyou cutting off her long hair and making it short does not work for me at all T_T. And second, why did this arc start out in Winter and not in Spring.

Clannad Season 1: Episode 18 was pretty much the starting point to were Kyou and Tomoyo's OVA Arc's took place. I mean, when Tomoya choose Tomoyo instead Nagisa in Tomoyo's Arc, it was still Spring and it felt like it continued were Episode 18 left off if Tomoya decided to date Tomoyo instead, plus it felt more believable but with Kyou's Arc, it was Winter and it felt like Kyou waited a whole another year to tell Tomoya who she feels about him. This might not be a big deal to some but for me, it feels like theres a gap in Kyou's story.

Still, that's not going to change who I feel about Kyou's Arc finally getting animated, it was really great to watch and I enjoyed it, 9/10 ^__^.

P.S. As far as Kyou's and Tomoyo's Arc go, I liked Tomoyo's more. Not because she's my favorite Clannad character but her story felt more like it had real romance to it.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

The part where they're sitting on the park bench, and Kyou asks if he wants to practice...is so School Days. I'm part way through the episode now, and I know it's not gonna turn out that way, but it still sent a shiver down my spine.

EDIT: Finished it. Pretty good, but not as good as the Tomoyo episode.

Well first off i gotta say that the animation was as good as always, and i loved that they finally animated the kyou arc, only problem was that it got über rushed. I would have liked to see this over atleast 2 eps, would have been much better and they could've built up the drama between the 3 alot more, didn't really feel sad when tomoya broke up with ryou, because they skipped alot of parts.

But still it was good to finally see clannad again, 7/10 for being way too rushed.

And here's to hoping that the Kotomi arc will be animated aswell :)
Pantyshots are a different matter entirely

animation is good but the concept is bad... want please the fanboys by letting them get hardoffs on tomoyo and kyou when an arc is just an arc and it turns to be one episode...

one episode is nothing its rushed its pointless its boring

the season is better than these "teasers"

ok, since im practically behind when it comes to expressing opinions concerning this episode, i'll try not to repeat everything too much. :p

First off, way too short. Not because I love Kyou so much or anything, but rather, there was not enough plot development. Therefore, not enough impact when it came to the important scenes... which to me, could not be differentiated from the normal ones because of the half-assed job that was put into this. I'm sorry, I love Key/KyoAni and all... but it's just so obvious when one watches this episode. The Tomoyo OVA was MUCH better than this, and I'm not a Tomoyo fanboy in the least.

It's quite apparent that due to the lack of detail/thought/whatever-you-want-to-call-it... it seems that this was just made to appease the Kyou fanboys out there: which is the saddest fact I have to accept. The lack of insight into Tomoya's turmoil really detracted from the potential impact this OVA could've delivered.This episode was: "Ok, Point A happened, fast forward to Point B... and then we're finished."

The rain scene: absolutely ruined. The "revelation" at the end: absolutely anticlimatic. The practice kiss: School Days much?

Despite all the negative aspects I could go on about this episode, I loved Sunohara this episode. It seems he fit right into this episode perfectly, though I wish he could've gotten to psychoanalyze Kyou in the courtyard a little bit more in depth. Also, I liked the little conversation that Kyou and Tomoya had after Kyou's "confession" to Sunohara. Finally, I like the sister flashbacks replacing each other from time to time... provided whatever little impact was offered in the entire episode. As sad as it is, that's all I can say positively about this episode.

Final Verdict: 5/10

Well, it's pretty much okay. Not so bad and not so good either. The story seems a little bit too rushed. If you want me to compare this with Tomoyo After, surely Tomoyo After win.

I am a Kyou fan, but this episode is lack of emotional scenes that usually become clannad's trademark. But then again, it's okay.

I'll give 8/10

Lmfao, Tomoya could have ended like Itou "Mother-Fucker" Makoto.

Hes a nice guy.

EDIT: Tomoya is the nice guy, for those wondering.

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...


Tomoya always looks cool.

You're talking about Tomoya or Kyou?

The OVA was nice, exactly what I expected from a 20 minutes episode.

I'm not gonna say much, but it should've been another episode : o
Well I though that about the Tomoyo chapter too, so yeah xD

Also I can see this as a possible pairing, although I'm a loyal Tomoya x Tomoyo fan : D
And in that scene in the end, a priceless smile from a clearly very happy Kyou when she clung to Tomoya's arm : )

I was really mad that Tomoyo's and Kyou's arcs were omitted in the series. Now, half of that anger is gone because this episode was just not good and I'm kinda glad it wasn't in the original story. I don't know what they left out from the VN but if the essence of this was just "sisters who didn't want to hurt each other", I don't even want to know. Too shallow compared to the other arcs if you ask me, which is something you should never do. Never ask me anything, it's better for everyone.

I'm not entirely sure whether you'Re being serious or sarcastic.

In case it's the latter, let me elaborate:

Fuko was a friggin ghost, lying in a coma for a few years
Kotomi suffered a heavy traums from her parents death
Tomoyo's brother almost killed himself
Nagisa almost died and ruined her parents dreams

Death everywhere and then there's Kyou and her sister like "Oh, I can't love Tomoya, you already do" and "oh, please do, I don't want you to be hurt either!" and blah, blah, blah. That's not Clannad-drama, that's soap-opera-drama. Unless someone who played the VN can explain to me how this is supposed to fit into Clannad (or ANY Key-typical HEAVYTRAUMADEATHDRAMA!!!111-story (I still like those stories though ^^'))

The main theme of CLANNAD is family....thats what the title CLANNAD means

Fuko - trying her best to make people attend the wedding of her sister
Kotomi - trying to be a good girl for her parents
Tomoyo - saving the trees for the sake of her brother
Nagisa - self explanatory
Kyou - sacrificing her own happiness in order to make her sister happy

also in the VN the story is present waaaaaaaaaaaay better and you see that the story is not just about a simple love triangle, its actually more interesting that than....I actually liked Kyou's story arc in the VN over After Story

I know, it doesn't change the fact however that it feels kinda weird compared to the others, so unspectacular. If I were any Clannad character surrounded by death and despair, I'd hit Kyou in the face for being allowed to be a main character for such a lame reason as making her sister happy.

If there wouldn't be a single-timeline, I'd travel back in time and make them give Kyou's main-character-seat to Yukine. She has a proper story for a main, Kyou's story has side-character-niveau at best.
