I just prefer Nayuki as a character.

Spoiler for Kanon:

I liked Ayu's ending to the series, but I'd be ineresting to see Nayuki's ending...honestly I felt really bad for her at the end :/

I mean, Ayu's good and all but Nayuki was just so determined to help with everything and anything you know? but, if Nayuki and Yuchi were to get together, would that be considered incest because they're cousins? ._.'

Not in most places, and not with significant genetic evidence. In Japan, Canada, Mexico, and all European countries, marriage between first cousins is legal. The Qur'an specifically allows it, so I don't think it's banned in any primarily-Muslim countries. It is also legal in 26 US states. If Yuuichi and Nayuki got together, their children would have a slightly increased risk of genetic defects, but that risk would be about the same as that of a child born from a 41-year-old woman.

So there's really no reason to be squicked out by it. (Ah, the things watching anime motivates you to learn)

It's hard not to feel bad for Nayuki. The revelation that she was scared of meeting Yuiichi again, and that, not her ditziness, was the reason she was late...but she still treats him with such affection.

I have an offical manga by Shimotsuki Kinusa (obviously a Nayuki fan) which fleshes out the romantic Nayuki ending quite nicely. I can see the entire Ayu sequence playing out if she and Yuiichi are just the closest of friends--and since Ayu is, in many ways, still a child, perhaps this makes sense. Nayuki obviously "loves" Yuiichi more; that is, her feeling is more deeply romantic.

That said, I still think the Ayu ending is the "ultimate" ending--it's one of the most profound things in recent anime, and taking away the romantic aspect might undermine that...

So, I don't know :P but I voted Nayuki

I enjoyed the Ayu ending immensely (for the tragic sacrifice by Nayuki as well as the happy for Ayu). But I think I would have been just a quantum more happy with a "Nayuki ending" with Ayu remaining a good friend of the family whom they help to recover. Much as I enjoyed the other ladies (especially Mai), any of those endings would have been unsatisfactory.

Haven't watched this in a long time.... I keep looking for spare evenings to watch some of my older favorite series.

You got this the other way around

Haha, nah I think Nayuki is annoying with all her "yawn....yawn.....yawn....head falls on b/fast table etc"

However, I developed a more positive image of her in the last 3-4 episodes as her maturity grew and I even had a feeling there was going to be a Nayuki arc because she was the only one left we didn't learn much about/get an insight into!

Though as much as i seem to dislike Nayuki (well, i prefer ayu over her), i think there should have been an arc on her like they did with Mai, Shirio, Makoto etc, especially since when i first saw the anime I immediately thoguht it was a story about Yuichii and Nayuki! They lived together, she was 1st character he met, goes to same school, they tease one another etc

I agree also with the very first post in this thread....the current ending with Ayu is definitely

Quote:
Albeit a bit cheezy and a little difficult to follow, the ending fits.
Sums it up 100% I have neither played the game or read the manga and was left scratching my head.

A second point of curiosity is wouldn't you think they could have completely re-worked the whole series, or maybe just the last few episodes to allow the company to make an OVA or special extra episode with a Nayuki ending! Those who have watched Clannad would know what I mean with "Tomoyo After Story" it's weird why they didn't do that because the way they ended the series leaves extremely little room to make anything to add on unless they start from a prior episode and have Yuichii go off with Nayuki

I agree with you on bit more happy with a Nayuki ending especially since end of 23 had seem to give that this was a chance, and I also would have been more happy with a Shiori ending, but Mai's relationship had felt more platonic so would have little bit below Ayu in terms of satisfaction.

So ya I voted for Nayuki ending of course xD.

It has already been addressed in this thread (see post #23 above) but the problem here mainly lies in differences in culture. Cousin marriage may be viewed in a negative light where you live but in Japan, it is perfectly legal, although its occurrence is rare.

O-o That is interesting.... Well I learn something new every day.


Oh, and as to your comment of it being different were I live:

Here we have a lot of jokes about it but it is looked down upon and shunned. Not sure about the laws though, am sure it is legalized after a certain distance (like 6th cousin) or someting...but I do not know. I think it all varies by state here.

@_@ Laws in the US can by quite confusing as they sometimes vary greatly from state to state. Some have not been changed since a said state's founding....

Ayu, because Nayuki is his cusin. How do you see that happening?

That simply would be out of place and akward.

I choose Ayu since I don't like the idea of Yuuichi and Nayuki together since they are cousins.

Hah, what a spoilerific title, though I guess it wouldn't be hard to guess. But then the real answer is Shiori. =p

I voted for Ayu anyways. I think the pairing is kinda funny and occasionaly cute at times. I just wish Ayu would eventually grow a few more inches though, lol. Besides, Nayuki deserves better; Yuuichi doesn't know how to appreciate her.

I prefer Ayu. Her story is so closely tied to everything that makes Kanon as beautiful and dramatic as it is, and the ending just feels natural with her. That's not surprising seeing as she's the main character. I played the visual novel as well, and Nayuki's route just seemed dull to me. It's an acceptable ending, but I like Ayu more and I love the story between her and Yuuichi.

Man, that's hard to choose. I think both are great partners for Yuuichi.
I just picked Nayuki because I liked her style more in the Visual Novel.

After talking with a friend... I guess it depends.

The problem with Ayu is that she's been in a coma for 7 years and thus still has the mentality of a 10 year old. It just doesn't feel right, and adjusting will take a few years. Plus now that I think about it, how much do they know each other?

But...

At that point, I think it'd be much better, which is why I'd really want to see a Kanon After, if we should go with Ayu. It's only right that way. We've waited 7 years; what's another 7? I thought that was an entire unexplored territory that deserves looking into.

The truth is, while I see strong friendship in most of these arcs, I just feel the only tinge of romantic hint was with Shiori which is why the thread's question is so hard to answer.

Nayuki is a much better character than Ayu, I would pick an ending for her. Ayu gets on my nerves sometimes.

~Shiori all the way ;p

~But Taking it I can't pick her, I'll go with Nayuki.
~The 1st time I watched the 2002 one, I though he was going to go with nayuki :3

~I've played the game, Game Wise, It's hard to pick, But I may go with Mai, In the game it seem to tell a bit more about what they was going to do after the story was done. ^^
