This is Kotomi. Her hobby is reading. Her weapon is violins.

Awesome beyond belief, this episode was.

A laugh fest from the start until the last 3 minutes, this was a pretty awesome episode that was Kotomi-centric, but still had time to develop up Kyou’s story as well. I especially loved how Kyou made a chance for her and Tomoya to be alone, and then asking him if he would consider going out with someone who loves him a lot. Ahh~~ Kyou. Oh, and Mahou Shoujo Kyou made an appearance too lulz.

Then there was also some nice cinematography shots of Kotomi herself, plus that weird, weeeeeeeird dream Tomoya had, which was truly fucked up.

Best of all, has gotta be the violin recital. There was this really cute moment where the orange striped cat tried to run away and bumped in to Botan, and the both of them exchange some words… before dropping dead XD.


Mahou Shoujo Kaleidoscope Kyou!


Oh, I’ve missed this face of hers.


Nice close up of Kyou


Someone needs to make a wallpaper out of this. Or a Megami poster.






The site of the Violin Recital Massacre.


Victim No.1


Victims No.2 and No.3



Spare a moment of silence for those who were silenced by Kotomi’s violin…..

    That… was epic.

    This episode actually made me like Kyou a bit better, although it also drew me closer to idolizing Kotomi as well.

    lol @ the violin massacre

    Truly a lol-tastic ep, although KyoAni does remind us of their prowess with the 4th and 5th screencaps. But I wonder what Botan and the cat said to each other before they dropped dead… xD

    And I’m probably the only one who gets the reference made with Mahou Shoujo Kyou’s tail.

    Tails? Not the one from Sonic; he has two. But Kyou is definitely foxy (*groan*)!

    I’m a little disappointed about the recital, since the OP made it out like Kotomi would ingeniously play the violin, but I guess not… Still a wonderful moeblob, though. And anyone with a foot fetish would be in heaven right now.

    I think I fell in love with Kyou during the cinematography while she asked Tomoya that question about dating. That serious look on her face was unseen until now.

    And she totally tackled Kotomi at the beginning there! Her face likely implanted in Kotomi’s bosom, but the OP interrupts the scene. *sad* The only other yuri-esque moment was when Nagisa and Ryou clutched each other when Kotomi was rehearsing. That was cute….

    I was rather put off by how the Clannad girls so far all seem molded precisely for the dual purposes of forcing you to laugh and THEN forcing you to cry… I get the feeling that the producers are flashing us neon signs that say “THIS IS KOTOMI SHE IS A GENIUS STUDENT WHO CAN’T SOCIALIZE AND KILLS PPL WITH HER VIOLIN PLAYING ISN’T IT OH SO FUNNY HAHA LAUGH LAUGH!” etc. The current Kotomi comes across as SO forced as a humour vessel as opposed to say Kyou’s natural authorative character which comes across as more naturally entertaining. Still, Kotomi won me over this ep with her APPLE PIE… *dessert craving activated*

    Well… it’s a Key work.

    What makes Kotomi truly entertaining for me is how Noto Mamiko’s voice manages to express her tennen characteristic perfectly.

    Ah well… fanboyism is unstoppable :P.

    Anyway, thanks for the Kotomi wallpaper, Ryggim.
