CLANNAD After Story 02: Sanae Attacks!

CLANNAD After Story

KyoAni’s gonna kill me soon these days with the moe damage attacks. Any more of this and I might just lose my sanity for real. Why are they sooooo good at titillating me?! It’s like they have a manual to all my moe buttons and are purposely doing it to me!

Story this week begins the Sunohara Arc (OMG! NOT THE YAOI END?!) and no, I assure you, that homosexuality is present (phew!). A slight tone of deep sibling love might be present (whatttt?!!).

Mei is very worried about her brother (who wouldn’t?) and thus decides to stay around for a while to make sure he’s doing alright. Tomoya decides to “help” out Sunohara a bit (you mean having fun teasing him again, don’t you) by suggesting he finds himself a “girlfriend” to assuage Mei-chan’s worries. Sunohara is excited about the idea of course, so with Tomoya and Nagisa tagging along, he proceeds to ask around for a girl willing to pose as his other half.

They first approach Ryou, but Kyou soon makes them regret the idea. (Fuck yeah! Kyou Dictionary ATTACK!). Tomoyo is next, but Sunohara gets knocked out as usual. Proceeding to Kotomi, she gladly agrees to help out, but since her idea of a date is a violin recital (DEATH VIVALDI!), Sunohara rejects it. Tomoya remembers of Yukine, but her bodyguard soon scares off, well, actually nearly kills him. Even trying to pick up girls on the street (LOL Talent scout Sunohara) fails.

In such bleak times, Tomoya and Sunohara bump in to Sanae, who hears them out and decides to volunteer for it. Bear in mind that Sunohara still thinks Sanae is Nagisa’s sister, ROFL. Both of them are shocked but decide to go ahead with the plan since Sanae’s so enthusiastic about it… although they keep it hidden from Akio and Mei of course. Nagisa has terribly mixed feelings about hearing her mother go on a date with her classmate. Someone ONE YEAR younger than herself at that.

Sunohara informs Mei about his “girlfriend” and Mei requests for a meeting, naturally, which he gladly obliges. On the day itself, Sunohara is dressed to the nines and (horror of horrors!) Sanae, perfectly disguised as a high-schooler with Nagisa’s uniform. In RPG terms, Joshikousei Sanae would be a totally unavoidable, instant 9999-dmg special attack on par with megane-Maria. Mei of course, totally finds it unbelievable that her brother can snag someone of that level. Anyways, to be continued!

    Sunohara is such an awesome comic character in this anime. Just love his antics.

    Jealous? No. Thinking that her brother’s paid someone off the street to pose as his GF? Yes.

    I can’t wait for Nagisa to crash THAT party…

    Still using the 9999 scale? Pah, SRW players use a whole different scale when it comes to damage (especially when one considers the RIDICULOUS levels of damage Ideon can mete out at 400 Shooting and a Max-upgraded Ideon Gun)…

    I was half-expecting Sanae to say the immortal Kikuo Inoue line, “I’m still 17 years old~!” though.

    Sorry Myssa, I am only acquainted with the FF series much. Also, there’s still a chance she might say it next episode ^^.

    forget the “9999 damage” or “99999 damage” or “9999999999 damage”.

    Whatever the scale, THIS IS INSTANT DEATH!

    Question: Does anyone know when/if the widescreen episodes will air? I know last year Clannad aired in fullscreen/4:3 two to three weeks before the widescreen/16:9 edition was aired. My friends and I want to wait for the widescreen edition, but I at least want to ensure there will be one at some point.

    Widescreen starts airing October 23 on BS-i as usual. I still don’t know why KyoAni or TBS insist on doing the pan-n-scan version first then the WS. I mean, it’s gonna end up in our hands inevitably.

    At least they’re not limiting the WS version to the DVD. That would be rather unscrupulous of them :(.

    Kurogane: To put things into perspective, in the last stage of SRW Alpha 3, in one of my playthroughs Ideon was hitting the last boss of the game (WITHOUT the usual status effects since Kaiser Ephes is immune to Armor down), at full upgrade, 400 Shooting, and 150 Morale WITHOUT Hot Blood (x2 damage) at around 60-70k damage. PER SHOT. Ideon has Infinite energy at Full Gauge. Do the math.

    I’m still waiting for Kikuko Inoue’s immortal line.

    Big number, small number, it’s still undeniable that joshikousei meganekko twintail Sanae is pretty darn damaging.

    Now,if that line is uttered…

    […] hairclip, Nagisa pales in comparison to her mother, so much so that the common consensus amongst fellow animebloggers is that Sanae is the main draw of the episode. As there’s little more I can do […]

    I agree with Shaoron… If you like bloomers for Kyou so much, where the hell is Sanae’s bloomer shot? EH!? =D

    Sanae will be the death of me, I swear… Ugh, I’m going to…

    (Bloomers for Kyou = awesome) != (Bloomers for Sanae = awesome)

    Then again it was a split second shot, so I missed it and lazy to take another cap.
