So here it comes. The unavoidable end...

Dammit I didin't want to believe it, until the last second I had the smallest shred of hope that things would somehow turn out for the better.

Well, I guess the only thing left is ask for an OVA with the good end.

I'm wondering about that as well. Maybe there's a convenient ascii code?

*coughs*

Kind of wondering how they're going to pull the transition from the 'default' ending to the 'true ending' though without causing a lot of headscratching from the non-game players...

To be fair, it was confusing in the original game too.

The twins showed up in the game at that point too, I believe.

NOT as a Fuuko stand-in this time around, methinks.

People, people, rmemeber to control yourselves and avoid future event spoilers.

@Mecha_Trueno et al

Just having a pair of lines in the preview is not enough guarantee to appearing in the next episode. Rather, take what they said in context. That's what I did at least.

I liked the theme that was highlighted this week about family sticking together and working through adversity relying on each other for support. This is a theme that gets discounted so much in society today - i.e. self reliance is good. I am not advocating dependence though, rather interdependence. This is something that this episode shows well - from Tomoya and Nagisa, to Akio and Sanae, and even the mid wife to a lesser extent. Akio's reassurance to Tomoya, that he wasn't alone in this, that he was family was particularly moving.

However I think the episodes will be hard to watch from now on...

Understatement.

So, we patiently wait for next week's episode.

This episode was a very good portrayal of the events leading up to childbirth. I liked Nagisa's continual stubborn attitude. I leaped for joy that they showed Akio's place. I smiled when they named the child "Ushio". And I cried when they showed the preview.

Ushio - The name of Tomoya and Nagisa's child, which has often been used as a signal for invoking the "instant infraction" on careless users by trigger happy mods at every single mention of it, can now finally be uttered freely. (But beware, the baby's gender is still considered spoiler bait by these mods for now. Though Kyo-Ani has left plenty of hints as to what Ushio's gender will be in the OP and ED of both series. )

While it is not completely clear, even in the game, Akio's "special place", where he prayed to the powers that be to "save Nagisa" may have something to do with the "Illusionary World" and the light orbs, considering there's some mystical quality in that place. And right now, that mystical place is now being sullied by the construction of a new hospital, which might significantly affect Nagisa in a supernatural way.

Thinking about it, that "place" may also be the "portal" to the "alternate dimension" that Kotomi's scientist parents discovered, but died before they could reveal it.

Hearing Kotomi and Ryou's voice in the preview may hint that they may be returning to visit Nagisa in her bed.

(PS LOL at "Akki" freaking out at the prospect at being called "gramps".

PPS More LOL at the screen switching to the title screen as Yoshino goes into his usual philosophical mood when commenting on Tomoya becoming a father. )

So after today, we can use "Ushio" without the ban hammer hitting our nether regions?

I still haven't seen it subbed dammit. My internet is being retarded.

Ya, I just shed tears three times in one episode. Only Kyoani does this to me. Damn them.

So ya, I've never played the game and I haven't read any spoilers but it seems pretty obvious what could happen if Kyoani decides to go the depressing route.

Spoiler for speculation:

Episode 15 article is up:

[RIUVA] CLANNAD ~After Story~, Episode 15

I have to confess, this being a lead-in episode I tried to find a reason to restrict it to a 9.....and I can't. 10/10.
