Kyou – 0 ; Tomoyo – 1
The basketball match episode, Kyou is the chosen 3rd member. Well, I guess from the OP, it’s pretty expected already.
Quite a lot of fun stuff happens this episode, too. Mei gets invited over to the Furukawa house to stay for a while, and she mistakes Sanae for Nagisa’s sister, lulz. Tomoyo’s starting to show her interest for Tomoya… albeit in a way that she herself doesn’t even realize yet. There was an epic showdown, between Kyou and Tomoyo… and Tomoyo actually mentally defeats Kyou and makes her blush, LOL! Looks like Tomoyo isn’t just strong physically, but orally too, hahaha.
Basketball match itself was pretty okay, with the trio of Sunohara, Kyou and Tomoya leading at first, then getting pwned, with Tomoya finally dealing the gyakuten point right at the end of the match, SLAM DUNK-style. Gotta love Kyou’s multiple 3-pointers. She also has her own fangirls too it seems as well, not to surprising, heh heh heh. Too bad Mei leaves right after the basketball match ends, would’ve loved to see her stick around for another episode :P.
So far, I’m really appreciating the current flow of events in the past 2 episodes of CLANNAD, as it really portrays the “school life” theme perfectly without actually focusing on one character only. I suspect the next arc would possibly be Tomoyo’s arc, thanks to her increased appearances lately. One thing makes me wonder though… would they be able to include the “After Story” in 26 episodes?
I kinda forgot about this earlier but…
Please become my imouto!
Ah, don’t worry though, I’m not turning in to Stripey.
