Oh, a thread for Ryou, awsome heh.

Well to kick things off, does anyone else think they'll merge Ryou's arc with Kyou's arc when the time comes? Or will they just stick to Kyou's arc?

I think they'll merge with Kyou, KyoAni wants to keep to the source material and that involves using as many of the side characters as possible. It wouldn't take very much time to give Ryou some love while transitioning to a full Kyou arc. Besides, if Ryou isn't covered with Kyou, there is no way she's going to be covered at all.

I mean, the Yukine scene wasn't necessary, but KyoAni decided to use her as a plot device. Ryou can plays the same role in the game anyway. No reason not to use her.

Anyone else looking forward to a hopeful Ryou+Kappei? I really liked that side arc.

They'll probably merge her in if they choose to do the full adaptation route. If they decide to cut character arcs (Tomoyo, merge Nagisa), then I think that they will just cut her all together.

Also, does anyone see similarities between Ryou and Tsukasa from Lucky Star?

YES!!!! THANK YOU!!! <3

I've been wanting to request a thread for Ryou but I didn't think she had enough involvement compared to Youhei.

I really do think that Ryou will be involved in Kyou since she doesn't have an arc per se, but more like someone who's too important to be just a minor character.

By the way, cutest girl in Clannad, thanks.

OH YES!!! It was time already!

For me, Ryou won't be part of Kyou's throught by (arc). She is a minor character and won't be a major one from day to night. She is only a part of the Clannad's comedy cast; KyoAni only did that scene of episode 4 because they CAN'T leave Tsukasa Ryou only playing up with the Fortune Cards.

Who could say Ryou, after all, could get her own thread?

I was fairly certain it would happen sooner or later

*cough*

That aside, Ryou caught my attention ever since i started watching this show. Its a real shame she is but a side character, because i would gladly see more of her and her fortune telling antics. Kinda sad to know she is out for Tomoya, but is destined to fail. Still remains as my favorite Clannad girl, though i can't help but feel this position might slip away with lack of meaningful screentime. Sadly, i can't imagine her doing well in this aspect.

Ryou is one of those friendly-friendly, smart-but-down-to-earth, easily-flustered girls who one would love to see a reaction from.

This makes it a pleasure to watch her antics when she does get her screentime.

I do sense something really bad will happen to her though. At this point, it's easy to tell that Kyou is trying to help her in regards to Tomoya. But... well, Kyou is the one that is part of the primary 5 females in the story.

Yep :]

She reminds me of Misuzu a lot, and Shiori a little.

Well, if I was Tomoya, I know who I'd choose *hits Tomoya on the head for his stupidity*

I don't think anything "bad" is going to happen to her - why would you think that Asides from getting heartbroken that is ... although Kyou is trying to help her, it is obvious her sister has feelings for Tomoya as well. Not like it is going to be any better for Kyou either - any girl that is not named Nagisa is bound to fail.

How could you have missed the awesome "Bi" joke in episode 2 ?

Well, yes getting heartbroken eventually is probably going to be happen, but it's almost expected. I'm actually implying something worse...

Spoiler for my theory on it:

Spoiler for my theory on it:
This is something I was thinking might actually be good to see but not too much drama. Nothing extreme, just enough to keep me glued to the screen but not too much that I'd feel I want to jump into my screen and slap the bad person. Then again this type of drama would most likely force me to side with one which again I would rather eat my own leg than choose one.

something that comes to mind is you don't wanna mess with Ryou or face the wraith of Onee-chan's super flying round house knicker flashing drop kick and super fyling object throw!

At start Ryou to me is only the little sister, fragile and innocent.

But two comments that Kyou made:

Spoiler for Kyou Comments:

Start a curiosity about her.

She maybe a secondary character, but we know more about her than Tomoyo.

The most funny moments Ryou is present, and she is the winner of avatars here, I think.

I loved her since her first scene in episode 1, they crammed so many cute little actions in that 2 minutes. I've rewatched that part for the most number of times for my Clannad rewatching count.

She's similar to Nagisa, my favourite main, Ryou being my favourite side character. She's shy and innocent like Nagisa but approaches others and isn't too afraid to speak, moderated better than Nagisa. Just that she has to be a side character.

Exactly. Watch School Days, you'll learn all about that.

It's a shame the Ryou will probably never get much of a chance with Tomoya, since she isn't a lead.

Too bad she isn't a lead in this anime. Very cute and innocent type-like ... Hehe.. Very interesting character.

It's an insult to Tomoya putting him on the same level as that "human scum", despite him being an unorthodox "delinquent" and "human scum" is just your generic male schoolkid protagonist.

Spoiler for tagged just to be safe:


Finally, a thread for our beloved younger Fujibayashi twin. Ryou-chan is the sort of girl that just melts your heart everytime you see her have any reaction to anything.

And like her sister, she is equipped with over-the-knee stockings that further destroys brain cells, enhancing her moe aspects.

Negima fans would recognize her seiyuu Kanda Akemi (Asuna).
