The place where wishes come true

This entry covers the closing episodes of Clannad After Story. I will probably do one last shorter entry for my overall thoughts and opinions, but first I need to set the story straight. I’ll give you a forewarning that this entry is extremely long. A PDF version is being prepared.

clannad after story 13 × full metal panic OVA
Posted by tai on Jan 11, 2009 under Anime, Clannad, Commentary

I can’t decide which scene is better: Nagisa’s drunk scene in Clannad After Story 13 or Teletha Testarossa’s sleepwalking scene in the Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid OVA.

They’re both so adorably cute and out-of-character (which only adds to the cuteness!) Nagisa has turned into a very intimate tsundere and Tessa is off in her dream world where all there is is Sagara, Sagara, and maybe some more Sagara. You gotta love the facial panic of the men, too.

Catching up on Clannad After Story 09—12
Posted by tai on Jan 10, 2009 under Anime, Clannad, Commentary, Observations

So it’s about time for me to catch up in my Clannad blogging, so here are some quick thoughts on the past four episodes. Just as a reminder, 09 was the graduation episode, 10 was the moving out episode, 11 was the work-related episode and 12 was the failed job transfer.

I think in Episode 09 was the first time we see Okazaki cry. Despite his poor academic performance he’s quite stable emotionally, so I was really quite surprised to see him cry because he graduated. That’s really awkward if you think about it that way, ne?
But, Tomoya and Nagisa’s characters have been changing a lot since they started dating, and everywhere we see hints of Tomoya finally maturing and taking responsibility for his own life. He doesn’t want to end up like his father, after all, so this character development is only natural.

youhei did no wrong; fingers pointed at tomoya okazaki
Posted by tai on Oct 28, 2008 under Clannad, Observations

Sorry Tomoya, but I am accusing you for all the preventable incidents occurring this and the previous episode. Mei, you’re partly to blame, too. As for Youhei, doesn’t it just suck to be everyone’s punching bag, especially at times like this? Thank goodness everything turned out okay and that Mei is finally back home and going to school. If you ask me, the insecure Mei and overconfident Tomoya have changed, not Youhei as one may initially think. In fact, I believe that Youhei’s character has not been changed at all by the events of this arc.

forgotten characters, interesting observations, and reasoned foresights
Posted by tai on Oct 6, 2008 under Clannad, Observations, Predictions

First off, I would like to put it out that I have not played the Clannad game (visual novel), so this post and all future After Story posts will not spoil anything past the episode in question. If you kept your first series episodes you may want to have them handy as I will make a few specific references to those episodes.

After watching the first episode of Clannad After Story I found myself wondering who a lot of the characters were. Naturally, I have a bad memory, and only recall the faces of some characters from some part of the first series. I skimmed through the first series to re-familiarize myself with these characters that have Fuko’d from my mind. Hopefully they’re here to stay, instead of running off after an un-surprising fail.
