He wasn't trying to dodge the topic I thought. He was just pissed off and resigned over all else. That lead to him finally recognising that he needed Nagisa to get through life, and hence he raised the proposal to keep her alongside him forever.

That was one FAST Yoshino arc though.

Called a reflection point, a point in life were a direction is set and to move forward. Maybe an obtuse term for most people but you will figure it out someday.

Episode 12

Well that was one heck of an episode! It was great and had I a lot of good points. Yoshino's backstory felt a little rushed, but there was tons of focus on Tomoya. You could really see how the events of his life changed his personality, as well as some things that he couldn't get over.

As for downsides, it's mostly just me complaining about the game. The biggest issue would be them changing the fact Tomoya and Nagisa should already be living togheter, and the lack of inmate actions between them. If I recall, they haven't kissed yet in the anime? T.T Well it's not like the emotional love between them is any less though so I'm cool. Another thing that worries me is how fast they are going. It seems like they skipped a bit of material like the first time Tomoya and Nagisa went to meet Tomoya's dad. A few details were changed to, like how Tomoya was the one who asked Nagisa to marry him, but I believe it was the other way around. They reaffrimed their love for eachother and decided to tie the knot XD.

Best proposal scene I ever seen. Nagisa's simple 'hai' just make things even more tear jerking.

It's still interesting there's no intimidate scenes through out the whole series, except that Tomoyo Special Episode

Just finished watching.

I'm almost absolutely sure the highly compressed Yoshino arc in all 10 minutes of it was adapted to the letter, heck his crying scene was practically lifted from the game. The compression lessened the impact of his tale a bit, of course Yoshino's story was really short to begin with anyway.

I also sort of noticed how Tomoya was more open to conversation in the park when Nagisa pointed it out. Stark contrast to the first episode where he entered his classroom with an apathetic face and spoke to no one.

And when Nagisa said the great thing about the town was meeting Tomoya... dammit I wish I knew the English equivalent to the Filipino term kinikilig.

The title of the next episode is graduation... which means only one thing: Grab a few kleenex tissues and maybe your high school yearbook. Take note of the baseball and bat, looks like it's the legendary fight.

As for the end of the episode... man... it doesn't really hit home until you see Nagisa crying when she frantically tries to restrain Tomoya from further injuring his own body. And then he pops the question.

Then he asks her if she'll always be with him, forever. God lord... I'll post more when I'm okay.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go cry womanly man tears in the john.

Short answer: They didn't change it.

BTW for more anime-game comparisons I think the spoiler or game thread would be a better place.

Although Tomoya meets his father and gets angry because he committed a serious crime,
he smiles a bit as usual.
I guess, no matter what is said to him or no matter how other people treat him,
he does nothing but show the same smile. I feel pity for him.

I really liked this episode all around. I'm glad that they kept Yoshino's arc and showed how vital he is to the story. Though, gosh, he looks EXACTLY like Tomoya as a high schooler.

Though, I kind of wish they didn't show Okazaki's father behind the box. In the game, it was just the holes to talk through, and it made him into someone metaphorically who had lost all existence in Tomoya's mind, but was still there. Then again, that was me probably overthinking it, probably Key just not wanting to make a CG for him. XD

I am REALLY hoping they change the OP/ED after the break, since people like Kotomi and Tomoyo really are not involved.
