See, that wasn't excitement, that was torture.

Bah, intoxication. You don't need to drug Kyou or Tomoyo to achieve the same effect (well, you can, its just more deadly)

Fine, how about an excitement you don't mind experiencing more than once?

See, Nagisa had the sort of excitement you don't want ever happening again.

So yeah, if a full length production was made... bricks would be shat.
Well, Key got the clue... and that is why they made Tomoyo After

Where were you when the first season of Clannad was airing? Up to episode 18-19, Kyou was #1 in the first popularity poll (in this forum). Tomoyo also ranked high. Both of them ranked above Nagisa.

Maeda said he made Tomoyo After simply because he liked Tomoyo. I wouldn't know how much her popularity factored into that VN's creation, but the former reason was by far the most important one.

Yay, Tak is having problem. Didn't you know Clannad-fans in general are a serious bunch? Yeah, where were you?

No worries, sir. Your humor isn't lost on some of us. I lol'ed at your observation that Nagisa is the kind of excitement one doesn't want to have ever again... after Proto posted a literal definition of the word excitement.

I personally like Kyou more than Tomoyo. Just from watching the show, I didn't understand her popularity among the fans.

Mostly from the game in addition to the drama CDs.

Tomoyo & Tomoya's interactions in both medias had what I consider to be classic moments. Hmm... apron...

Kyou shined a lot in the anime, while Tomoyo got axed right after season I. However, in both the game and drama CD, Kyou's arc was a bit lackluster IMO (it felt like deja vu, and its not something you haven't seen already). Anyway, in short, Kyou's route in the game & drama CD made me felt very, very frustrated. Tomoyo's route in the game & drama CD made me cry tears of joy.

Kyou indeed made a lot of splash in the anime, though, and depending on your point of view, it might or might not be an unfortunate turn of events.

People, we are in the damn KYOU discussion thread. So long, please keep discussion related to other characters in their own threads (especially: AVOID shipping as we already put in our guidelines!).
This is especially true when it is about spoilers.

So fucking true. I can remember thinking that much while I played her route.

And, indeed, she was at her best in Kotomi's route. I thought she was reliable since the first time I played, but she definitely shone at her max in that route. She was simply amazing there.

Bleh, and Random Curiosity's Daily Doses used to be good with putting up news when it was actually news. Ah well.

I'm curious how they will be able to compress the arc into 1 episode and still keep the drama. It worked with Tomoyo, but it'll be harder this time because of the mad teen drama between the characters. I always thought the arc would take up 2 episodes at least.

It didn't really work with Tomoyo the way I wanted to be. They managed to cut a whole bunch of events that led them into becoming lovers by simply having Tomoya utter a line or two in regards to their relationship.

Likewise, i would not imagine this being all that different in regards to Kyou, where we will get something like "under the consistent insistence of Kyou, before I knew it, I was dating Ryou..."

I rather missed that exposition as well. The inclusion of the season opening in the episode didn't really help matters.

Even if you cut the exposition out of the Fujibayashi arc, 1 episode still isn't enough to cover the development, the climax and the conclusion correctly. Just imagine the effects if the climax and conclusion take up the last 3/4 of the episode:

Spoiler for Fujibayashi Path spoilers:


This will definitely be more disastrous than the Tomoyo episode.
