CLANNAD After Story 06

CLANNAD After Story

Misae’s mini-arc ends. Ahh~ it was too short.

It turns out that it was a flashback shown by Shima to Tomoya, not the other way round, so my misconceptions are cleared.

If anything, the arc ended a bit too fast for me to feel emotionally attached to the story, so when it ended, I was left a bit dry, hoping the “dream” would’ve lasted longer but it seems even KyoAni has a schedule to stick through. A bit of small consolation comes in the form of trap Shima… but I wished they would’ve spent the time forming a much more deeper bond between the viewers and the characters.

CLANNAD After Story

Hillarious, but wasted the time a bit too much.

Still, I felt touched when Tomoya conveys the words that Shima wanted to tell Misae, thereby giving Misae a closure… no, a sense of it rather, to her relationship with Shima. At least she now knows that he’ll be with her always, and she can finally move forward from it. Or, at least, that’s what I felt from watching this episode.

The next episode will finally center on Yukine, and I have a somewhat high expectations of it, thanks to Guncannon’s worshiping of her.

    Careful about placing expectations too high there, Kuro, else it’ll come to a point where it can never be met; KyoAni is doing well so far with the adaptation, but they’re not perfect.. Expect absolutely nothing though, and you’ll rarely be disappointed. It’s what I do.

    Yukine’s arc is especially difficult, for the same reasons they didn’t adapt the Twins’ and skimmed through Tomoyo’s.

    That, and although Yukine herself is awesome, her arc is kinda bleh.

    Kaisos: Precisely. Given that Tomoya and Nagisa are an item in the adaptation, well, it would really REALLY be awkward to show scenes were Yukine is lying on Tomoya’s lap.

    If Yukine was added in…..

    Tomoya: “Nagisa!!! Eh, eh, we’re just uh, uh, reenacting a scene where I hate to nurse a sick little sister!!”

    Yukine: “ara” ^_^

    Nagisa: “Tomoya-kun, I thought Kyou-chan, Ryou-chan, and Hitomi-chan saw wrong at the shopping district, but you really have an imouto complex?!” O_O

    Huh. That person in the middle of the second pic. That a trap?

    Also, Yukine lying on Tomoya’s lap? Wut.

    That’s pretty much the entire plot of her arc.

    Also, the ending of the route is going to be, um, difficult to do.

    Me and a couple people on AnimeSuki wondered if they were going to pull another protagonist switch and give Tomoya’s role in the Yukine arc to Sunohara, but it looks like they’re not going to do that.

    Kaisos: Sunohara? Are you serious? *snickers*

    And yes, the end to Yukine’s arc will be… difficult. The ‘Yukine sleeping on Tomoya’s lap’ is hard enough as it is.

    Well, it’d shut up the newbies who keep whining that Sunohara needs a real girlfriend.

    I’d agree, but as Sunohara’s entire point is that the universe hates him…

    Kaisos: I’d think it’s more accurate to call him the Universe’s plaything, given how much less of a douche he is in the adaptation. Less Khamic backlash at work here.

    And again, seriously? Yukine? And Youhei? Even in the anime that’s kind of.. off. o_O

    I agree that Misae’s arc is little rushed..3 episodes should be sufficient.
    But still, the episode was great. Even better than the one in the visual novel in my opinion.

    Can’t wait for next week. ^_^

    […] arc comes to a nice close. Kurogane thinks it deserved another episode, but I think 2 episodes is just nice since it was a mini route. […]

    “Me and a couple people on AnimeSuki wondered if they were going to pull another protagonist switch and give Tomoya’s role in the Yukine arc to Sunohara, but it looks like they’re not going to do that.”

    No way. But maybe Kappei.

    I was personally banking on Katsuki… well, it’s not gonna happen, huh? Well, all I can say is “meow”.

    Im wondering if Kappei’s arc will appear? Maybe it could fit somewhere in the after story, because of the whole nurse ryou thing.
