I second this. I remember there is a big PREVIEW written at beginning.

That is true... I never thought of it that way. I was thinking the preview was for the Episode itself, but it COULD be different. Maybe Key will do something crazy and make it Tomoyo After Story for season2 after all and trick us with those fake after story trailers... Who knows, its a possibility

Like many others I was skeptical of this alternate version from the Clannad tv series but I feel it was well directed. They had quite a bit to cram into a short period of time but I think they organized it well considering how fast time progressed, it was gradual rather than abrupt. A definite must see if you havent already.

Had a chance to watch this episode for a second time. I think it's really interesting to see the difference in Tomoya's character between this story and the main arc. Consider it for a moment. When Tomoya is with Nagisa, he seems to be very strong and willful. He has confidence that he is Nagisa's strength, which in turn gives him strength. Moreover, he takes an active role in making Nagisa's dreams a reality. Tomoya is the one who makes the last shot in the basketball game, and Tomoya is the one pushing Nagisa to do her best.

However, with Tomoyo, Tomoya is much less self-assured. People telling him that he should break up with her greatly influences him. We see no advancement in his relationship with his father. Most importantly, we never see Tomoya stand up for himself and his feelings. That said, the relationship he has with Tomoyo appears much more open and cheerful. Both members seem very comfortable with the relationship, and confident in the others person's feelings. Tomoyo seems so shocked by the breakup, in part, because it is so contradictory to the feelings that she knows Tomoya has for her. Even in the end of the episode, I don't believe that we see the level of growth in Tomoya's character that we do with Nagisa. In short, this is why Nagisa is the best partner for him.

A short way to describe it, in my opinion, is that while NagisaXTomoya has the two acting as supports for eachother, TomoyoXTomoya has Tomoya acting as a source of comfort for Tomoyo. Thus, Tomoya does not grow in the same manner that he does with Nagisa.

I'm incline to disagree with you. Whilst I agree with Nagisa, Tomoya and Nagisa both asts as support to each other, is saying with Tomoyo, Tomoya doesn't grow? I personally do not think so. You said that Tomoya is less self-assured, indeed, but that is after the rumours and the breakup. Tomoya still does push Tomoyo to do his best, after all, it was him who helped Tomoyo win her election in the first place. The Tomoya with Nagisa is still the same Tomoya with Tomoyo, with all those rumours flying around, I don't doubt it will have much difference even if Tomoya is with Nagisa. If his relationship with Nagisa actually affects her goal (say, drama club), I'm pretty sure the same thing will happen (that is Tomoya being all depressed and etc).

Tomoyo certainly is one of the main support for Tomoya when he is depressed, but Tomoya has clearly demonstrated growth by the end of the episode: going to school, doing work and being more independent are all initial signs of his gradual growth. Though we may not see it much in this episode, this is what I interpreted.

I'm a fan of both Nagisa and Tomoyo, so hopefully I'm not too bias

If we're wishing for stuff, I'd like a "Final Starfish User Fuko" miniseries (with a cyborg Tomoya). It looked interesting.

Hmm... well at least the series redeemed Tomoya a little compared to his game self... which still didn't make me like him much during this arc. Personally, I was never too fond of Tomoyo's story, however that is not to say that the adaptation wasn't good. i just have some qualms with the script All in all, it was not a bad episode, miles better than what you get for DVD extras these days

+: Enjoyable episode overall; liked the chemistry between Tomoyo and Tomoya.

-: Only one episode of this? I thought it was better than the show itself...

If they do Tomoyo After, I hope they split it into two halves - 1-6 for the Tomoyo Arc in Clannad and 7-12 for Tomoyo After.

Looking forward to their wedding.
