Q: Extra episode...? What is this about? Shouldn't it be Episode 23 ?
A: As explained in the last week thread, CLANNAD ~AFTER STORY~ main story has ended with Episode 22.
Episode 23 does not follow the main plot (as it is set a year before the events of the first season occur), hence why it doesn't have any "Episode 23" in its title.

Well, pretty much what you would expect from an extra episode. Not much important happenning, but nevertheless cute and warming.

The preview for the next episode doesn't really tell us anything given that it only showed the faces of every character in the series, with the preview song from the 1st season. I couldn't decipher the reading of the next episode title, but here is a screenshot.

The impression I got after watching the preview from Episode 22 is that this episode might be a recap. I hope not.

Meatrose 2009-03-19 12:34

Ah, so they will air a 24:th episode as well. Damn, I was so looking forward to an announcement this week. Then again, an additional episode is always nice I guess.

Negative. It is completely new footage.

YES! An epilogue! "Underneath the Green Tree" it says.
So, next episode is titled as extra or epilogue ?

Some kind of recap maybe ? Remember old rumours ? But I hope for something special and new with the meeting of all characters.

My bad. We're looking at a recap episode next week. Soushuuhen = Summary/Highlights episode.

Jimmy C 2009-03-19 13:28

Did they use this or the last season's OP and ED? Also, how many orbs on the title screen?

2nd season, yes. Being a hearing oriented person doesn't help when writing. :heh:

Spoiler for extra episode:

*Sigh* I was so hoping next weeks ep would be an OVA - something like the Tomoyo one in the 1st season.

There is so much potential to do a half season just from the missing arcs that were missed in the game (I have been reading a bit in the speculation for experienced gamers thread).

Oh well. I am grateful for what we do have. KyoAni have done a remarkable job of redacting a complex multiple path game into a linear path series. I do hope that both Clannad seasons get released in Australia on DVD. Buying them would be a small way of paying tribute to the studio for the job that they have done.

typhonsentra 2009-03-19 16:32

Wait, by recap you mean a clip show?

Ithekro 2009-03-19 16:51

Looks like it could be a clip show. Never seen a KyoAni clip show before.

23 was good. Looked pretty much straight from the CD Drama/Another Story save for the Kyou bits.

Lulz for the exaggerated Akio-Sanae scene number two.

typhonsentra 2009-03-19 16:58

So for the final DVD they're going to charge the same price you'd pay for three full episodes for just 2 and a clip show? Sucks for the fans who buy these things, especially when you consider how cool episode 24 was for the previous season.

Proto 2009-03-19 17:01

Yeah, but episode 24 from S1 got a DVD release itself so most probably they got money for it from the previous DVD sales and an increased budget pool. This time around because of how the broadcasts times played out they have to release ep.24 with the rest of the season, which means that they have to manage with whatever they have left from the series budget (probably not much, given how removed all safe guards for ep 22), and combine that with the current economical downturn, of which Japan is taking the worst part. Not a nice combination to be truthful. Given the love for their series that KyoAni is reputed to have, I doubt they are happy with this decision either, but money talks.

Game8910 2009-03-19 17:07

im watching ep 24 just to see what they announce (cmon little busters)

Ithekro 2009-03-19 17:12

Spoiler for Episode 23:

Preview:
To be honest though...aside from just images of all the cast members and a title scene...does anyone have a clue what the next episode could be about?

If KyoAni still has an artistic touch, then it could be a epilogue and the scenes we have the the preview are Tomoya remembering things while sitting with Nagisa and Ushio.
