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.


Kyou: /facepalm

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.

    KYOU-CHAN KAWAII!!! Way to go, Tomoyo, lol.

    Not surprising Kyou has a fanclub comprising of girls from the lower classes, ever since the “bi” rumour. hehehehe

    I wonder if they’ll make an animation adaptation of Tomoyo After…..With the flow of things going on with Clannad I’m not really sure if Tomoya will end up with Nagisa….well it has a high probability if not 100 percent sure that is most likely the case. Still I get the feeling that whatever ending they go for it’ll be worth it.

    What if KyoAni were to do a remake of Slam Dunk? Toei did a decent job, though there were glaring weaknesses in the initial parts (less budget and time, I guess)…
    Certainly the basketball scene by KyoAni was enough to pawn Dear Boys’ crap-tastic attempts to animate a decent match

    The sub of Clannad comes out really fast. Make me really happy =) Thanks for all the people who did the sub. You guys make my day.

    Haha, I thought it was really funny when Mei brought out Dougu and ask if Sonohara want it. Mei’s appearance is really light-up in the beginning of this episode. To bad that she has to leave already. When she said “what a shock,” it reminded me of Ayu (Kanon). Tomoyo’s love is in the air really make the story even more interesting. I wish she could have more screentime though. But the best of all was Kyou’s blushing. That was so damn cute !!! Kyou FTW all the way.

    I didn’t expect much out of the basketball match. I thought it would be better if Tomoya actually made the basket without the shout from Nagisa. I thought that was too cliche. Oh well, another good episode from Kyoani.

    @Ryggim: That’s a good point. IMO, It will be awesome if they will do something like OVA based on Tomoyo After life game as the alternate ending.

    Funniest Scene Of All Has Gotta Be When The Sausage Was Stuck Up Sunohara’s Nose XD

    @Ryygim: Probably not. Tomoyo After isn’t really 100% Key from what I’ve heard. Also, Tomoya is bound to end up with Nagisa… can’t end it any way else.

    @Xstacy02: That idea is a bit too overboard….

    To be made siscon by Mei is the greatest honor afforded by the fetish. :)
