Tomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful Life~

This thread is meant to discuss about Tomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful life~. You can use this thread to discuss about both game and manga adaptation of this spin-off.
Feel free to share your opinions, game experience and so forth.

Before anything though, please remember this game/manga is a spin-off sequel, following the end of Tomoyo's route in the original CLANNAD game (it doesn't reflect the original time line and events of CLANNAD, so spin-off).
Hence, please understand it might spoil you concerning Tomoyo's route. That said, for further overal information, please check the wikipedia article.

As a final note, please do not discuss about Tomoyo in her "CLANNAD period". For this, please rather use the concerned episode thread, the game discussion thread, and/or her character discussion thread.

Oh, so you mean the story for Tomoyo After is so sad you'll rip your heart out if an anime comes out for it. Heh....for a while there I thought you meant that you'll rip your heart out because it won't do justice to the game in your opinion, or something.

But if that's the case, IMO by all means bring on a KyoAni Tomoyo After! I personally don't mind being made to bawl all over again....

The PC end?

But the PS2 end has a extra 1 minute scene that turned the PC game sad end into a Happy/True end...

Hmm, I may want to PM you directly later to check on some details in that case. Not now, since I'm a little busy. Hope you don't mind.

Regarding the 'true story' of Tomoyo after:

Personally I prefer the original ending, as the altered ending sort of cheapens the whole aftermath of the surgery... but good endings are always nice.


IMO, "Tomoyo After" really fleshed out Tomoyo and Tomoya's character, giving much more character depth to the two, as well as a resolution to their relationship. In Clannad, nothing really happened in their line in terms of character development. TA's definately the reason that I like Tomoyo so much.

@ eMpTy265 and Tangowr

Thanks for the clarification. I actually understand most of the ending, with the exception of the whole:

Spoiler for Ending spoilers:


Methinks they should have gone the whole hog for the PS2 ending actually (either change it completely, or stick to the original, more moving ending), but I suppose I shall settle for it. GAAAAHHH~~~!!!! Reading this thread spoilt my entire day. T_T

I'd assumed that there was a:

Spoiler for ending spoilers:


in both versions and I'd considered the whole thing closed for myself. I suppose I shouild put getting the CS edtion on the top of my list now. I feel like knocking the writer of TA on the head for this now. How dare they treat Tomoyo like this~~~~

And eMpTy265...

Spoiler for Reply to Clarification of TA: True story::


I may still want to PM one of you two for some additional qns. XD Hope you don't mind.

Well that certainly explains a lot of details I missed - especially since the the last part of it was very text-heavy (I relied on spoken Japanese and AGTH when I played Tomoyo After).

Spoiler for my interpretation of events:


Still, regardless...
Spoiler:


There's one thing that I wondered about though....
Spoiler for in regards to the PS2 ending:

Meh, I'm still pissed over finding out about what really happened... but I was thinking a bit about something. I had a thought that if by some stroke of fortune/misfortune, and Kyo-Ani does do a Tomoyo After OVA or something... which ending would they choose to flesh out? Or better yet...
Spoiler for ending spoilers:


Anyway, my thoughts on the whole issue? I wonder if this isn't Key's not so subtle way of telling the fans not to bug them for sequels. (Yes, I did read that thing that was mentioned about the writer Maeda. Tis just a joke.)

We should all start getting worried if Key announces a Kyou/Kotomo/Fuuko After.

I'd die if they did the last PS2 scene with a dream sequence setting

Especially if they draw Tomoyo and Tomoya in shades of light colors...

***

Anyways... I think we've really gone on a tangent with TA... maybe we should get a sub-thread.. (j/k)


Then again, there isn't much for Tomoyo discussion in ep.5... save for the chance that Misae might replace Tomoyo as the Sunohara killer...
