it was....not as good as I had hoped it would be...its just too little time to adapt such amount of content...7/10 for this, a shame really because this is IMO the best arc in all of the Clannad VN (even better than After Story). If only this had been 40 minutes

Farplaner 2009-06-30 20:30

Just watched it RAW...

Everything was super fast forward, but I guess the essence of the story was presented. I cried like crazy in the game, but here, I felt that the story was touching but I didn't feel like crying at all.

There's also more kisses in this episode than the whole 2 seasons of Clannad combined ;)

:cool: I know...its cool

I watched it raw too and it felt abit rushed. They hit the key points, but it felt more like a 5 minute trailer with the rapid pacing. I cant bring myself to pass final judgement on it till I see subs, so we'll see. Overall it was nice seeing Kyou's ark animated, just wish they'd taken better care in condensing it.

Well it was bound to happen considering all the material was going to be compressed within a 22 minute time frame <_< They should have made it at least 40 minutes to an hour since this is an OAV but I guess we'll have to settle for this.

I just wish they gave Tomoya and Nagisa some more intimate scenes then what we got but I guess we can't have everything we want :p

ThoHell 2009-06-30 22:08

WHATTTTTTT???!!! You people saw the raw already? I thought it comes out tomorrow. Ok, it's time to do some madd searching, I MUST SEE IT NOW!!!! I hope it's just awesomeness. Kyou was my fav. out of all the girls, even more than Tomoyo

Tak 2009-06-30 22:15

I just watched it myself. As what many people have mentioned already, a lot of the details were deliberately left out to cram the material into a 25 minute frame. This meant a lot of the more enjoyable moments in the VN or the drama CD were not included and that the whole thing felt like a fast-forwarding fest. The pace is completely off-balance.

A shame really. Although they did manage to hit most of the major key points, the OVA, like the Tomoyo incarnation before it, felt a bit lackluster.

The biggest problem though, is the lack of EMOTIONS. Where is the angst? Where is the pain? Where is the desperation?! Many were just cut for the sake of cramming. Even Sunhara's reaction here was less than amusing. Another thing is that Kyou is way too soft here... and I mean soft as in cotton-soft. The OVA also excluded one of the best uttered exchange from the VA, which occurred at the end of Kyou's portion when she kissed Tomoya.

Overall... happy to get an OVA, but... SIGH~

OHHHHHHHHHHHH, I watched it. Yup got to agree with you guys, 1 episode is definitely to short for this. There was s much that could of been done or covered. Sigh, can't believe it's over and I only get 1 Kyou episode...oh, Kyou with that Hair is a no no, long hair is a must for her. Even with that hair she still didn't look like her twin, weird. But anyways, it was too short and not enough....:(

Ottocycle 2009-06-30 23:58

My feelings watching through this can only be summed in three words. 違和感. (Also game player here)

The fault of the length, definitely.

Ithekro 2009-07-01 01:07

Yeah...that was rushed. Pretty, but rushed.

touge-n00b 2009-07-01 03:13

Yeah, I will agree with you all when you say it was rushed. They flew through a lot of scenes in the VN, and the pacing itself felt off.

However, I think if you take this episode as a compliment to the VN, then it was great. This episode, IMO anyway, was clearly aimed at the VN players, and not necessarily the anime only viewers. The Tomoyo episode felt more stand-alone, but this episode assumes you've played the VN.

Overall though, as a Kyou fan, I enjoyed it. Maybe more so then the Tomoyo episode.

One more question: Can we assume that was Nagisa in the end Ryou meets up with? :D

izmosmolnar 2009-07-01 03:29

I don't think it was Nagisa.

I think the Tomoyo OVA was more enjoyable to be honest, despite that I actually like both of the game-routes almost on the same level.
Oh well, it was nice to see Sunohara and schoolgirl Kyou again, so I'm not complaining.
Actually I would have preferred if they somehow make it as a 30-35-40 minutes long OVA, and implement somehow Kappei too, so Ryou wouldn't be so sad in the end. I was wishing for something like that in the game too, but it could have been actually a good idea doing it here. Well it's no big deal though.

edit: and it was a bit ironic that we've seen more kisses and intimate hugs etc here, than the the Afterstory and first season combined. :/ (At least I'm under the impression that's the case)

Shiroth 2009-07-01 06:16

A shame it was so short. Would have worked a lot better if it at least lasted an hour or so. Still really enjoyed it, which is quite a surprise because i didn't think i'd like it as much as i did.

Kyou with

siber222000 2009-07-01 10:47

hm.. I was looking forward for this episode because personally I loved kyou route for the game, but they changed the VN plot little and yeah it was definitely rushed. only if it was longer it would've been pretty good. they did it so well for tomoyo OVA so why is this one kinda rushed? no clue~ but I'm definitely not very pleased after all that waiting :frustrated: kyou route is still the best though~

*Forte* 2009-07-01 11:02

It's rushed a hell lot. My friends who didn't play Clannad or watch the 1st season don't understand why Tomoya loves Kyou lol
At least they put some kiss scenes here but...well... I think this epi is better than Tomoyo's Arc in term of art-quality, and that's all. And did anyone hear Kyou say anything about feeding Tomoya to the sharks if he loves Ryou?

Child_of_Sierra 2009-07-01 11:21

I could sort of sense how some parts needed a bit more padding but to finally see the one arc I wanted most since the 1st season was a really enjoyable experience.

Nochgo 2009-07-01 11:40

It was definitely too rushed, and couldn't capture the full feelings it had had in the game, but I just can't help give it a 10, because it is the only episode where Tomoyo ends up with Kyou >.<

That said, I am in despair due to thoughts of having watched the final episode of Clannad. Seriously, Clannad is one series I wish KyoAni kept milking on and on, cause Clannad is just so fat that it would still be healthy even if there were two more seasons of it.

Haak 2009-07-01 13:36

I wasn't able to watch the Tomoyo chapter because it felt kinda weird. Even though Nagisa was the last person I wanted Tomoya to end up with, I had long since accepted the fact that Tomoya loved Nagisa, and watching episodes like this one where Tomoya is expressing his love for another girl is almost like watching him cheat on Nagisa. I just can't help it. It was rushed as hell just like everyone said, but I don't think that could've been helped really.

I don't know why I gave this a 10. That was an accident. I should've selected 7. In the end I still don't understand why Tomoya went out with Ryou in the first place.

Solafighter 2009-07-01 13:43

Ouuukaaay~

Well with "FIN" at the end, i think this was the last official episode of CLANNAD or will there be some new one, coming?
