Looking forward to their wedding.
Tomoyo Arc in Clannad is done already (unfortunately)
All that's left is hope that they'll do Tomoyo after in more than one OVA

As someone has already said, in terms of the anime, Tomoyo's arc has already been covered by what both fansub efforts have called "episode 24". All that remains of a Tomoyo story is Tomoyo After itself.

To conclude, while KyoAni has certainly demonstrated a willingness to explore alternate storylines (which, according to conversations I have had with velocity7, is a prerequisite to tell the Little Busters! story properly), if I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath. Believe me, as a representative of one of those efforts whose staff also happens to be directly involved in the CLANNAD game's translation effort, we would dearly love to see this happen.

I just finished watching this series and I agree w/ one of the statements made earlier on in this thread. It was hands down the most enjoyable episode IMO. However, this did bring up a question. Was it ever explained as to why all this extra attention was given to Tomoyo? Is she a fan favorite or something? Because I guess I was just thinking how nice it'd be for several more episodes such as this to be made depicting "what if" scenarios between Tomoya and some of the other females in the show. Having said that, I feel rather lucky that Tomoyo ended up being one of my favorite characters. Otherwise I probably might not have liked the 24th episode nearly as much.

(And in case it's not already obvious, I have not read the manga, seen the movie, or played the games. So I apologize if any of my commentary came off as somewhat ignorant.)

Well, there is only speculation, but one of the most logical explanations is that Tomoyo is a very popular character. Perhaps only second to Nagisa. She has her own game (which is not in this) so her popularity has to be up there. Along with that, her story line along with Kyou's requires a lot of commitment romantically so it would not be possible to put this or kyou's along with nagisa which is why their arcs were so short. So i guess between this and kyou's she was more popular.

I don't think it have anything witch character being popular...
IMO if there were no Tomoyo After, then we wouldn't get Extra Episode. (Yes, I know that Extra Episode = Tomoyo route from Clannad,)

I dunno if what wikipedia says is truth or not, it's just fitting my theory perfectly
I mean... Maybe KyoAni is planning to kill two birds with one stone? After finishing Clannad TV and releasing Extra Episode, they are ready to start Clannad After Story and right after AS, Tomoyo After as OVA(s). Two Key games getting anime adaptation at once

Thanks for the replies. So is it safe to assume this episode could very well be the result of a combination of things?

-Tomoyo's popularity among the fans (I have to admit, I had no idea she ranked so high as a fan favorite).
-and Jun Maeda's decision to give more attention to Tomoyo by making Tomoyo After. (Perhaps this decision was decided and based around Tomoyo's popularity, his own personal preferences, or both?)

It was just compensation for no H-Scenes in Clannad lulz

I think he is talking about the After Story, Nagisa's (do correct me if I'm wrong )

btw Tomoyo After IS depressing though.

Today this moment i am reminded of the joy of watching animes. Being brought to tears from Tomoya's depression and then the reunion ending. Such powerful emotions. I think i'm gonna go cry and suicide somewhere while i curse and wish i had such a girlfriend equivalent in real life.

Pure speculation, but never say "never"

Until there is official word from KyoAni itself or any reputable news outlet, anything about KyoAni animating Tomoyo After must be treated as pure speculation. I'm going to assume that this is an "unknown" until word comes otherwise.

However, given KyoAni's reputation thus far, I'm gonna stick to the position of "never say 'never'". ;)

It seems to me they're at least considering it if they released something like this.

Ian, you are right, this is speculation, but...imo it makes sense. I don't believe they did Tomoyo chapter just because there was not enough love for her in CLANNAD TV, or because fans wanted them to do. I'm sure KyoAni had some ulterior motive to release Tomoyo Extra ep

Time will tell what was their ulterior motive.

PS
If they did Tomoyo chapter just because there was not enough love for her then I demand Kyou chapter & Kappei chappter too

10/10 I enjoyed fully even though one episode isn't enough I am happy from whats there.

Tomoya and Tomoyo make a good pair and his struggles of school and such reminds me of when I was younger trying to work and be more closer to the girl I had a crush on.

And yeah TA is alot sadder.

To be honest, I liked Tomoyo's ending better than Nagisa's 9/10.
