The episode seems happy for a while. Familiar faces and all. Plus Nagisa seems quite happy.

My suggestion would be to avoid this thread altogether. To be fair unless the mods take some harsh action this thread will become a spoiler hell.

Though I really don't remember what was the policy for episodes whose fansub has yet to be released bt whose RAW is already out.

Well, technically no one's said exactly what happened, but from all the chatter it's going to be extremely difficult not to get a clue as to what's going on, even without spoiler tags.

It's kind of a snowball now rolling down the slope.

It's almost been set in stone since episode 15.

Ah screw it. While the event in the game didn't hit me as hard as I thought, something tells me this one will. I'll watch the RAW, ad I have a towel handy.

I didn't ever tried to touch any spoilers here. I barely see the spoiler on the other site.

-1 point for including pointless characters (Kyou, Kotomi, Youhei). I know it's nice, but it's like "We're here all the time, you don't have to worry!" One of the points of After Story in the visual novel was that after graduating, school friends disappear and you need to find new ones.

+5 points for making me shed a tear, despite having played the game and knowing what would happen. It's mostly thanks to the excellent animation and voice acting. Tomoya's talented seiyuu, along with the incredible animation of the character, made him feel real. I think the series quality control was best at this part.

-2 points for incorporating the ending. KyoAni has been a bit too consistent with openings and endings in their Key works, and it shows here more than in any other episode. Torch playing at the end is like a slap in the face to devastated fans, like saying, "Hey stupid, quit crying! Clannad is a happy series, and this ending video proves it!" I must say they could have picked so many things to play instead.
Spoiler for rant:


Above rant doesn't keep me from rating this episode a 10/10 though.

Edit - Meh. Moot issue. Ended up watching the entire damn thing anyway.

I doubt I'll be in any right cognitive condition for the next few days.

Will post my review/impressions when the first subs are out, so as now to spoil anything.

Also, screw tissues. Bring a bath towel.

Heh, it seems that folks will need the emotional equivalent of Tactical Dreadnought Armor for this.

Screw this man, here's MY advice:
Don't watch and pretend after story ended at episode 15.

I haven't played the game, so at the end, I was actually STILL thinking "that didn't REALLY happen right...?"

The ED could have still been "Dango Daikazoku". How do you think you'd feel if that where the case?

There should be some sort of massive warning for this thread on the first post, on the subject, etc.

Episode 16 made me think quite a bit. I think it's fair for me to say that much without spoiling it. Watching this made me assess what my married friends from my grad year have to mull over as they move on with an often unpredictable life as a functional family, as it also raises the question in me regarding what of my stance on starting a family... which has been something pretty far from my mind.

Steel's not enough. You'll need damage control as good as the ones on Iowa class to couple with that steel after being plummeted by the salvos from this episode.

In terms of spoiler material...
Spoiler for my thoughts on the actual episode:


I don't wish to spoil the story further, and as it is right now, I am already feeling drained emotionally from what had transpired. Overall, I think this episode is solid despite the time constraint and I await the next with eagerness and trepidation.

Warship armor would be ideal verses a power suit in Key derived animes. Shields on said warship is a bonus.

I made the mistake of looking up the Dango/Nagisa's song to get the starting words correct.
