Kanon is a…

Kanon 2006

Nayuki showcasing her techniques to Kyon’ichi.

.. showcase of Kyon’ichi’s awesomeness. I swear… this episode felt a lot more longer than the 24 minutes it’s supposed to be. It’s a good sign in any case, since it means the show was so damn good I totally forgot about time.

I must express my admiration to the script writers of Kanon, for being so damn good with the lines, especially Kyon’ichi’s ones. It’s really tailor-made for the awesomeness that is Sugita Tomokazu. For example…

Yuiichi: Yaa… I’m sorry. I was thinking too much that I didn’t notice that you were in the bath… since I’m already here, might as well join you in the bath as well…

Yuiichi: Approved!
Sayuri: For what?
Yuiichi: To become my bride!

Ayu: Akiko-san is good at cooking, isn’t she.
Yuiichi: You should try her special jam… you’ll experience a taste that’s not from this world.
Ayu: (giggles).. really?!

… heh XD. Just awesome.

His caring side is also shown in this episode too, when he catches Makoto trying to pull a prank on him again and sends her back to bed since she’s having a cold. Btw… Makoto’s sneezes are just..too… cute…

Speaking of which, doesn’t the plot feel like it’s advancing quite fast? Mai’s already giving out the cryptic hint to Kyon’ichi about Makoto needing him soon. And Ayu’s starting monologues are already getting more and more clearer. Makes me wonder if they’re really going for 26 episodes. Anyways…. 1 more week to wait for the next episode.. uguuu~~~~ ._.

    Moving fast? They haven’t even touched on the start of any of their arcs. They’re still basically doing character introductions. :-P Though really, Mishio’s the only one left now that Sayuri finally got some air time.

    They never intended to make 26 episodes to being with. Episode 14+ is actually the second season of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu :D

    I think their budget is catching up to them. Think they’ll make it?

    I think we’ll see individual story arcs get taken care of now–and taken care of at a slower than the first seaon. Dunno if they’ll go through an arc and conclude it, then move on to the next one and so forth, or if they just going to go through each arc and then conclude everything in the last few episodes.

    They should rename this series, Kyon Messes With Retards in the Snow. I thought they couldn’t make the girls even more retarded than in the original, but they did, and with the addition of the smart ass Kyon they have made gold.

    Why so much hate for the girls? They’re quite likable, really.

    Looking back… yeah, I think they might slowly develop all the plots together first. It just felt fast for me.

    We wish… we wish…

    Really? I think their quality is still good. My raw is the problem :).

    Initially, I was worried that Yuuichi being voiced by Sugita Tomokazu would make him a Kyon clone, especially with KyoAni producing. After having that worry come true I’m actually glad it happened. While the story was good in the original Kanon, the sarcastic dialogue from Kyon’ichi keeps things interesting and often has me laughing out loud.

    The story definitely feels like it’s moving too fast, the Makoto and Mai arcs seem to be converging into one and looks to be wrapping up in 2-3 episodes. After that there’s only Shiori and Nayuki left until we catch up with the original Kanon’s pacing. o.o

    Given the depth of Mai’s story( based on the game, not Toei’s version), it will NOT be resolved within 2-3 episodes.

    Shiori’s and Makoto’s arcs are the easiest to resolve, and I am predicting that they will be the first two to be settled.

    Mai’s, Ayu’s, and Nayuki’s arcs are much more complicated, and should probably become the finale for the series.

    Cheers.

    Bah, as long as this keeps being as awesome as it is, I won’t even notice the slight changes in the animation quality. I wouldn’t give a damn about it.

    (Unless the quality turns into QUALITY, that is)

    >> They should rename this series, Kyon Messes With Retards in the Snow.

    If you don’t like the show, why commenting about it in the first place? Despite your nick, you brain has a serious lack of serotonin. It’s the cause of your being a d*ck.

    >>Episode 14+ is actually the second season of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu :D

    SPOILER ALERT, DON’T YOU DARE READ THIS IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED!

    Not second season, more like spinoff. We already have Kyon, and instead of Time Traveler/Alien/Esper we get Stand User/Human-morphed Animal/Ghost XD

    SPOILER END

    Now, to be fair with Kyuuichi, he has proven to be superior to Kyon. The guy not only has the witty and sarcastic remarks that make Kyon über-gar, but also (unlike Kyon) he is quite the smooth operator, can be perverted when required and has some noteworthy sweet talking. Hell, he’s even trying to pimp Mai, whil Kyon is still somewhat intimidated by Yuki (ep10 doesn’t count, he’s only done that once).

    The girls Kyon deals with are harder to “hit on” though, for various reasons.and the one he likes, asked him not to.

    Kyon is god ;)

    serotonin made a humorous comment. you grossly misinterpreted it. you returned fire with a cliché response. I suggest 10 hail marys and scrolling to the top of the page.

    @fortedash: I was asking a polite question, granted that sagematt’s tone is provocative yes, but I wasn’t. I was just asking why.

    @sagematt: Please tone down if you can, I don’t want to censor comments.

    It’s just that, I don’t believe that the person calling us “fags” out of nowhere is an “innocent bystander” that thought we were being unfair to serotonin. Same person, of course.

    @fortedash – “with the addition of the smart ass Kyon they have made gold”

    Ok, I’ll give you that much.

    I know this is probably a stupid question, but is ep. 13 the true end of the Kanon series?

  17. Kurogane Shiroikaze Said,

    Xellos, Kanon 2006 is slated for 24 episodes.

    As for the true end thing… to be honest, all the Kanon girls arc will be explored and combined in to one story line.

    I haven’t played the game yet, so i’m not to sure on which is the “true end”.
