Wow this is fast well i can't wait to watch this in about 4h51m. A week already gone and didn't know sigh~.:heh:
This is so gonna be awesome with lots of Makoto :D :D

Great Makoto episode!
In fact, it's so Makoto-centered, they didn't even have time for even a cameo of Ayu and Shiori, which may not bode well with their respective fans.
Hm, KyoAni isn't shy about dropping hints (or answers for that matter), are they.
Was Mishio (great voice acting by the lovely Sakamoto Maaya, by the way) that talkative in the game and the previous anime adaptation?

So it looks like they will indeed wrap the Makoto arc in the next episode, so the other girls will probably get the same attention in terms of episodes.

They won't wrap it up in the next episode just yet judging from the preview, as the "process" looks to be just beginning to get serious.....

Right form the start of the episode, we cut straight into the christening of Piro. Kyuichi's 'glow' was funny to behold.
It's funny how that Mai actually points him to Amano. I wasn't expecting this at all. And now the secret to the name of Makoto finally comes out.
(seriously, where'd Haruhi go? Kyuichi...)
Good cost-saving measure on the part of KyoAni with those stills. Very dramatic at that too.
People are going to go crazy trying to identify the manga. I can be sure of this. Marry huh...
Right after this... chopsticks... oy.
So, he sleeps with her, and now this entire story finally blown itself out in the open. That fox... looks so much like Kuon from Triangle Hearts somehow.
Now I finally reflect on this. Life and memory, what price to pay for a miracle huh...

I wonder how Akiko will feel... come conclusion of Makoto's story...

Spoiler for Today's Episode:

Folks that were looking for a lot of laughs this episode will not find it there is some, but not much

Srin Tuar 2006-11-23 19:06

lol, Yuuichi's tsukkomi are hilarious in this episode.
I can't easily separate this character from Kyon.

panzerfan 2006-11-23 19:08

The fox and the muntjac... (cries)

Leo_Otaku 2006-11-23 20:47

I would really want to own a fox plushie like that it would be so adorable! ^-^

I was expecting more of a decline in Makoto's health in this episode but they are slowly doing it rather than all at once.

Yeah trying to figure out the manga sure will be funny it looks 70's style sort of.

Meophist 2006-11-23 22:37

I was crying and laughing (at the same time) throughout the episode.

Some notes:
No Ayu
No Shiori

Sushi-Y 2006-11-23 22:55

The beginning of the end~ (´・ω・`)

Some of Mishio's advising roles were taken over by Mai in the anime, actually. And she's really just mysterious and quiet, not silent.

At this rate, 3~4 episodes will probably be the number for each heroine's route. I don't think Makoto's route will end next episode, but it probably will on episode 10.

Nayuki's sonic petting made me laugh. :heh:

And here it comes, what started the internet meme "Sad girls in snow". I chuckled 1 time when Yuuichi realized she wanted him to read Shoujo manga but it's hardly a laugh. Makoto Makoto Makoto. I love how 2 girls aren't in this episode at all and Mai and Nayuki are relegated to cameo roles.


Oh and sparkly Yuuichi? Instant win :D

Total agreement. This episode really, really worked. I didn't recognize Maaya's voice, but I sure noticed how good it was.

Ascaloth 2006-11-24 11:46

The subs are coming out really slowly can only imagine how it's getting harder and harder for our valiant subbers to find an untainted RAW to work their magic on. :p

<- of course, Makoto here, being the brat that she is, is screaming "Where's my SS-Eclipse sub!!!!!!!!!!!" :D

Mentar 2006-11-24 11:51

That's one of the reasons, thanksgiving vacation is the second, but the most important one is that there was alot of _tough_ typesetting work to do. I know that our typesetter blew 6 hours on AFXing and Photoshopping this episode, and that he had to interrupt his work for a few hours of sleep.

The first encode-worthy raw popped up after 12 hours too, so there wasn't too much time left, for all the rest (you can't typeset with AFX/Photoshop unless you have the final workraw, or all colors will be off).

Anyway, we're out. And still in the 24h timeframe.

Ascaloth 2006-11-24 11:55

Nice work, Mentar. Be assured though, I'd be the first to forgive you guys should you run over the 24h timeframe one day; after all, who can complain when it's fantastic work?! :D

Katapan 2006-11-24 12:33

What a satisfying episode. It just felt that Kanon was overall good before it, but its real theme is now being shown and it gets a lot more interesting. Bring on the sad girls in snow.


There were also some nice extras in the episode, like the cuteness overload from Piro and a certain fox. Getting to hear Maaya Sakamoto was also great. Will it get even better, I wonder...

stevency 2006-11-24 12:41

Finally, the "naki(cry) game" factor cames out.

Props yet again on KyoAni to turn the classic game into a classic anime.
