CLANNAD After Story 03: Saishuu Heiki Imouto

CLANNAD After Story

“Isogai Sanako, jyunanasai desu~~!”

キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!!!! *faints* They really did it! I knew they couldn’t let such an awesome chance slip past by. It just wouldn’t be Kyo Ani otherwise.

However, this ends up being a Mei-focused episode, despite the facade presented by the preview last week, and oh wow, I am LUCKY that I’m not Stripey. Even non-imoutokon like me nearly died from Mei’s “Onii-chan~”, what more a full on self-confessed siscon. Tomoya takes the full brunt of Mei’s Imouto attacks this week, and oh boy, never has the word “Onii-chan~” gained such destructive power. Seriously, it’s so powerful that it should only be used upon authorization of the UN’s Sec-Gen and the five Security Council members. This is a weapon so gentle yet so deadly, it may one day end all wars. Oh god, what am I rambling about now?

*Ahem*, despite the high parts of the episode, this remains a serious one as well, as Mei continues dealing with her troublesome brother, who’s… well, you know how he is, and she wants him to become a kind and nice person again, like when they were both younger and he would regularly save Mei from the local bullies. She also would like for him to regain a purpose in life too, like when he was in the soccer club, but the trauma of what happened still hangs deeply inside him. She’d even go as far to a pretend relationship with Tomoya to “incite” him back.

A nice balancing job that KyoAni did for this episode, between the moments of fun and serious drama. They sure went all out on Mei this week, and it’s not surprising since we won’t be seeing much of her after they’ve done her story. While it’s gonna be sad to see her take a backseat… I’m somewhat glad on the other hand that we might not see her for a while. Any more longer, I think I might just give up and join the Stripey camp.

Mei not loli enough for you? Here’s an even more loli-er version!

Tomoya’s reaction says it all. Never has the word “Onii-chan” been so deadly.

Although…. he should really restrain the “Moeee~!” reactions a bit in public. Nice timing, Kyou, Ryou and Kotomi!

Ahh, god, those eyes…. those absolutely adorable puppy dog eyes…..

“Eehhhh, is that guy a lolicon or a siscon?”

In between Mei-chan’s puppy-dog eyes and her “Oniichan~~” calls, Tomoya’s wallet stands no chance at all.

“Hishishishishishi…” Oh god, that laugh. It sounds so deviously cute.

“‘sup Sunohara, I’m dating your sister now instead of Nagisa.” “WHAAAAAAAAAT?”

Hauuuu~~ Moping Mei-chan looks so sad. I’d give her hug if I could just reach through the dimensional gap.

    We won’t walk away from Clannad with our health intact.

    Ah, good – the immortal line was used. Sanako is indeed forever 17 years old. ;)

    So Clannad -AFTER STORY- is really bad for my health. MOE attacks with every episode… not sure if my heart could take it any longer…

    Haess: Well, it does help that she DOES look the age in CLANNAD. Still, hearing Sanae say the immortal line illicited a snicker out of me. Too bad, since we’re in the Sunohara siblings sub-route right now, the fun will be diminished a bit with Youhei being a douche and all.

    Myssa: Given who her seiyuu IS, they had to use the line. There’s a reason Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei had her use the line… and then add the number of days that came out to her real age.

    This show is breaking me in so many ways that I thought I couldn’t be broken….seriously… that onii-chan hurt more than when I jumped out of the hospital without fully deploying my parachute…

    well i thought i that I’d be able to resist the “onii-chan” attack… but it still got through me… kyaaa (*insert odd moe-smitten pose here*) lolz

    I’m amazed it had to be Kotomi and the Fujibayashis who witnessed the “Onii-chan” scene. I wonder what would come if it were Akio or Tomoyo.

    Yep, that line must be uttered, if only she said those lines in MGS3…

    Mei… those eyes and expressions… more powerful than a Starlight Breaker, I’m a Kyou/Tomoyo-type aficionado, but even the power of the loli-siscon compels me >_

    Uhhh, that pic of mei stepped out of the realm of loli and into the realm of toddler. Don’t advocate it.

    I can never get tired with the “jyunanasai desu”.
    Today I also happened to listen to Code Geass Sound Stage 4 where they also used it.

    Cecile: Cecile Croomy jyunanasai desu~!
    Lloyd: Well then everyone in a big voice!
    Everyone: Oi oi!!!!

    Oh damn, I haven’t listened to that yet. It’s been sitting on in the playlist for a while now. I loved the Geass dorama CD’s.

    Oi oi, Onee-chan! Seriously, Inoue Kikuko is going to kill me one of these days. She’s just too damn amazing. Eien juunanasai, Onee-chan!!

    Mei’s “onii-chan” is an amazing harem-destroying technique. Beware!

    Someone needs to make a “moe-by-death phrase” ranking. This episode would have two in the top 10.
