Etude of contact

Kanon 2006

Nyuu~ ambush!

Just when I thought this was a more laidback episode…. ▼

… Kyo Ani springs this on us. I’ll just have to say one thing… that was some awesome cinematography going along with that scene. Never look down on KyoAni… never…

Well, with this kiss, I guess it’s really “Sayonara” for those still holding up the slight hope of having Nayuki ending. Even Nayuki herself has admitted defeat in one of the possibly best scripted sequences for Kanon 2006. I really like how she took her “rejection”, but personally, there’s a part in me that wants to see her go all yandere on Yuuichi. It’s more of a twisted way of how my mind actually pities poor Nayuki. Well, I shall just pray for her to achieve her own happiness somehow.

Also, for the Shiori worshippers, it’s just too bad there wasn’t much revelation on Shiori’s current fate, apart from her being out of sight for a while, along with Kaori… sigh…

Addendum: Before people start putting out wild theories on why loli-Ayu didn’t want loli-Yuuichi to see her climbing up the tree in, I’ll tell you why…. SHE DIDN’T WANT YUUICHI TO SEE HER TAIYAKI PANTSU!!!

    Anyone else think that the kiss was a bit fast for a remake with 5-7 episodes left? Maybe it’s because they’re actually saving a few episodes for a… NAYUKI ENDING!!!

    Maybe…

    We do know what happened to Shiori. Jun tells Yuuichi in this episode that Shiori’s condition has stabilized.

    To me, it was fairly obvious that Jun said that to cheer Yuuichi up. As Yuuichi starts to cry, Shiori is “already dead.”

    Wow they already kiss.. this ep sure was pretty intresting. Ayu and Yuuichi are on a wild goose chase looking for something who knows what lol. Still looks like next ep will be Lots of Ayu-Ayu. I like the Ayu ending alot but I want to see more Nayuki in it too! lol it’s really wierd to see that pimp Yuuichi blushing though x,x he seemed invulnerable to girls untill that part heh

    Wow!!!! just wow! Soooo many things were awesome about this episode……

    “Yuiich-kun, have you ever lost an important person right in front of your eyes?”

    That whole scene is nothing short of BRILLIANT :)……I still have goose-bumps! :P

    As far as the kiss being early……maybe yes, maybe no…..not having seen the original it is impossible for me to tell…..

    It’s pretty clear that Ayu has always wanted to kiss him, and they were sharing a moment of grief together……it suited the moment perfectly IMO…….it will be interesting to see reactions to the kiss in next week’s installment :)

    Lots of Nayuki goodness in this episode as well :)……Her cuteness meter is off the charts!

    P.S. I think I have a pretty good idea of what Ayu is searching for now :)

    LOL, I CANNOT be the only one that feels weird seeing Ayu kiss Yuuichi(not the other way round).

    Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against Ayu, it’s just that she’s … Well, SMALL! It looks so wrong!

    It’s going to be bad on Yuuichi’s rep, lol!

    What are you, a friggin’ detective or something?

    >> how i wish i was yuuichi that night..

    Word. I would have given her some “everlasting memories” :D

    Anyways, this episode shows why Nayuki is the best of all of them. Sure, you can have your wife material, your girlfriend material and your alien-interface material… but just let me have my cousincest already! or knife Yuuichi if he won’t care about you!

    “Anyone else think that the kiss was a bit fast for a remake with 5-7 episodes left? Maybe it’s because they’re actually saving a few episodes for a… NAYUKI ENDING!!!”

    More probably it’s because Ayu’s story contains a necessary break between its climax and conclusion. Nayuki’s story, one would assume, will be slotted into that break. It’s not exactly complicated. There’ll be another 1-2 Ayu, then 2-3 of Nayuki before

    Ayu re-enters the story for the big conclusion. It’s not exactly rocket science – the whole series has been building up the YuuichixAyu dynamic, and Ayu’s story is the only one that really provides a decent conclusion to Kanon as KyoAni have presented it

    *still holding out for an alternate Nayuki ending*

    I’m quite surprised how people can come up with all sorts of wild theories when the reason is actually so simple as Kuro here has put it. If you don’t believe him, go play the game. The visual novel text clearly refers to Ayu’s skirt as she blushes after Yuuichi asked why he had to turn around, to which Yuuichi instantly “got it”.

    “loli-Yuuichi” should be “shouta-Yuuichi.” ;-)

    I never expected Nayuki to get a story because from the start, the writers did her in a way so that they wouldn’t have to do one with her (unlike “Kanon 2002″). But that’s fine and I didn’t mind how they dealt with it.

    I like this episode. It can be interpreted as a transition episode but it’s still great.
