Kotomi arc, yay! A tennen Noto Mamiko is fine too. KyoAni wastes no time to come back with it’s comedic awesomeness, with this episode of CLANNAD.

Best parts:

  • Kyou running over Tomoya again, with her scooter. Oh man, Kyou is so deadly.
  • Kotomi and Nagisa’s “conversation” ^^;;;
  • Kotomi Friend-making Attempt #1: Kyou; who totally scares Kotomi off.
  • Kotomi going “Nandeyanen” in that deadpan voice. Even Osaka would find it hard to match that up.
  • Kotomi Friend-making Attempt #2: Ryou; who predicts that Kotomi won’t make friends orz.
  • Kotomi Friend-making Attempt #3: Pedo.. I mean, Tomoyo; instant friends due to kigurumi outfit.
  • Kyou’s admirable tsukkomi of Tomoya.
  • Kotomi’s violin playing is a deadly weapon.

Aside from Kotomi’s story, there’s also hints of Kyou and Ryou’s arc as well this episode, with some of Kyou’s off-hand comments. Looks like they might merge some of Kyou and Ryou’s story together with Kotomi’s one, and resolve it right after Kotomi’s story is done.

Screencaps gallery after the jump.


Pedo… I mean Kuma-san are so irresistable


Ahh, it’s been a while…


Oh Kyou, why are you so awesome?


Kotomi + violin = Not good.

P.S. Kotomi has really big boobs.

    Kyou should have nibbled Kotomi’s earlobe.

    I would’ve fainted immediately from being too excited if she actually did that…..

    Goodness, Kuro, from that still screencap, you can see how well-grown Kotomi-chan’s “assets” are, as they get “congested” due to being hugged by bi-girl Kyou.

    In the game, Kyou does a Haruhi and gives poor Kotomi-chan the Mikuru treatment.

    “Whoa, yours are surprisingly bigger than mine?” lol

    Good job in editing the preview again, with Kotomi-chan throwing off her trademark “Nandeyanen” at every line people say.

    Oh, and Kotomi-chan’s violin sonar is so powerful for a while I thought I was watching Bleach.

    Kotomo is a little too far out there for me but…Oh god, Kyou! I don’t care how many scooters you wreck by running me over, I still love you! *BrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRRR-donk* /o/

    I know exactly what you mean FlameStike! I had to resit my urge to yell out “MOE!!!!” so many times during this ep. especially when Kotomi was clinging onto Tomoya and cowering in fear saying “Are you a bully?” If Kyou had bitten Kotomi’s earlobe like Haruhi, i would have given up and yelled “Moe!!!!”, then faint afer nosebleed. I had to really hold it in when Kyou grabbed Koyomi and large…breasts were squished by the hug.

    Kotomi+Violin=Weapon of Mass Detruction

    o.o! That molest screencap is .. *faint*

    It really was more personal in the game! Wah! I don’t care if everyone calls it a Haruhi reference. Hauu~

    And silly me, I seriously thought Kotomi was going to play something super awesome. I just got that whole impression based on the OP. Well, maybe she’ll do better in the future. But wow, that violin scene totally took me by surprise. Ganbatte, Kotomi-chan. x.x

    –And I’m surprised no one’s posted a particualr screencap yet, so I did:

    I definitely adored this episode. Kotomi captured my heart in the Fuko-arc, and now I get to find out moar about her :D

    I think they made a very nice transition from Fuko’s arc into this one and to think it’d be hard to suddenly swing back into comedy after all that drama. They did it rather well. ^_^

    I definitely like how CLANNAD is coming along. Story-wise, this show and ef ~ a tale of memories definitely have the most beautiful stories this season with animation to match. ^_^

    First I have to agree with EVERYTHING that ryvrdrgn14 said, very true.
    Also I’d like to add that if they cut corners by adding Kyou/Ryou arc in with Kotomi’s It’s going to be frustrating, Kotomi deserves all the screentime Fuuko got at least, if not more.

    >> I would’ve fainted immediately from being too excited if she actually did that…..

    You would be sent straight to heaven if it came with Mamiko Noto’s moan. Admit it.

    Those who have already heard her moan knows what I meant.
