I've been looking forward to this ever since I first heard it was being remade; why am I not enjoying it more? I can't fault KyoAni's art or animation; it's definitely beautiful...but so far, it seems a little hollow, somehow.
Well, if you playback that scene, there was a sound effect of snow falling before Shiori's exclamation. So what happened was that Ayu bumped into the tree, loosening the snow but not making it fall yet. Ayu and Yuuichi then squabble. Shiori walks past and the snow finally falls. Yuuichi blames Ayu for causing the snow to fall.

Yes, I heard that. The time between the two events still seems way too long, and there's still no clear cause for why the snow falls when it does, other than that it's convenient -- previously, Ayu's impact with the tree brought it down, and the only coincidence was that Shiori was walking by at that moment. Now, Ayu only loosens the snow, and then *nothing* brings it down when Shiori finally arrives? I'm not expecting absolute realism or 100% correct physics here, but that's stretching the whole willing-suspension-of-disbelief idea a bit far, at least for me...

Hmmmm, there *can* be a substantial delay between a shake and the snowfall from a tree --- its usually a rather wet snow when that happens (not the ultra dry stuff the Cascades and Rockies are subject to). But yeah... the timing is pure comedy slapstick.

I see this effect more frequently with rooftop snow ... .smack the house and it might be minutes before a huge cascade of snow comes down. The smack destabilizes the snow... but its internal structure and friction fights a slowly losing battle until the critical point is reached (nonlinear system theory) and you get a sudden phase shift.

It's not that uncommon for a delayed reaction on the snow's part. Eh-to... how do I explain this without being too wordy?

Ayu bumping into the tree provided kinetic energy which shook the snow on the tree, but the force was not large enough to immediately make the snow fall. It was however, enough to provide potential energy within the snow( whose position has been shifted already from a stable one to an unstable one) and from then on, gravity took over as the snow slowly, but surely, gained momentum and fell just as Shiori happened to walk past underneath.

It is perfectly realistic in nature, and obeys the laws of physics, but I suck at explaining it in layman's terms, so I am now hoping for a person who actually majored in Physics to help me explain it better.

Cheers.

This episode had it funny moments. I enjoyed it. Ayu~ <3

Special thanks to everyone who posted their observations. I've never watched Haruhi nor AIR, but it really amuses me to see the references. It feels like all of them live in the same universe or something. Good job KyoAni~

References are great.. .unless they actually detract from the story.
So far there's been hardly anything that a viewer who hadn't seen the other shows would wonder "what the hell was that about?" ... so cookies for KyoAni.

.
Or another way to look at it.....

I think that's because the snow didn't fall from the same tree. They are in a residential area containing nicely trimmed trees. Shiori is standing in front of the neighboring tree. I mean you can say that snow from the top branches of the tree that Ayu hit fell on the neighboring tree causing it to fall on Shiori. Ayu does do 4 steps to reach Shiori. That could give you a time delay too.

Those references all good, but if Nayuki and Misuzu really had pink PJs in the game then isn't it that Air is referencing Kanon? The same with the Yuichi monologue statement by Kaori. Another forum mentioned that this is a also game event. If so, then it becomes Haruhi is referencing Kanon and not the other way around.

Yuiichi monologue statement and Kyon in SuzuHaru are totally seperate though (it turns into an unintended case of parallelism) given that the suzuharu the novel is by no mean influenced by Kanon.
The AIR thing though would a reference of a reference...

The snow thing... I think that KyoAni actually handles it closer to how things like that tend to happen. Immediate impact normally doesn't bring snow crashing down immediately from what I recall (I haven't tried it nor do I intend to).

Spoiler:

Upon reviewing what happened in Kanon, I can't imagine how crushed Yuiichi will be if everything falls upon him simutanuously like a deck of cards. Akiko, the all-knowing is what I am banking on to pull him through but... (I am getting ahead of myself).

You should just take a look at the huge picture instead of commenting on some minor stains.

I actually have to agree. It's a timing issue, obviously, but it did seem quite awkward, particularly when you compare it with that scene in the first series. In the grand scheme of things, it's probably minor, but maybe it's an indication that 24 episodes might stretch Kanon's story a bit thin. One hopes not, though.

Since I'm a fan of the Ayu path, I wouldn't nitpick any of the other characters' paths. I did read an interpretation that better explains it. I also understand Nayuki now too.

Guys, guys. Mark your spoilers.

Deathkillz, you need to hide your spoiler in a spoiler tag. MakubeX2, you need to hide your quote from Deathkillz in a spoiler tag too.

You're ruining the surprise for the newcomers.

Cheers.
