The ending was perfect. It was exactly like the game, this is everything I had hoped for. (Well I was hoping that Tomoya & Nagisa would kiss but I’ll have to stick to the fanarts for that one I guess xD)
So because you as the game player have now completed all the endings and gotten everyone’s hikari no dama, you can restart the game once more and get the true happy ending where Nagisa lives happily ever after with Ushio & Tomoya. ﾜ―ヾ(●´∀｀●)ﾉ―ｲｯ
Tomoya, Nagisa & Ushio once again visit that field of flowers where Ushio runs around (like she did at the OP of season 1). In the game all the final CGs were kinda sketchy so it was nice to see them done in normal color here.
Kyo is still a kindergarten teacher with the giant Button being the kids’ pony
Sadly we could not see the arc with Ryo and her future husband Too bad I don’t have my Clannad game review post to refer to, but while she was a nurse one of the story light ball endings was for Ryo and Kappei. It was quite hillarious too but also sad and emotional. I wish they had cut out all those wasted baseball episodes and squished that arc in instead but I guess I’m asking too much
One of the few characters that actually changed is Mei. I admit I like her a lot more as an adult woman than a loli rofl. The sad part is, they showed Sunohara learning to drive before this scene and he looked like he was actually YOUNGER than her.
This was another game CG scene that was all sketchy. Nice to see it in full color and stuff.
Nice shot of Nagisa & Tomoya here. So happy that they got a happy ending ;^;
I was already getting teary eyed and shit before this but no they gotta bring the Tomoya with his dad scene again sending me into a hurricane of tears. ｡ﾟ(●ﾟ´Д)ﾉ｡ﾟヽ( )ﾉﾟ｡ヽ(Д｀ﾟ●)ﾉﾟ｡｡ﾟヽ(●ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ●)ﾉﾟ｡ｳﾜｧｧｧﾝ!!
Basically as you play the game and if you noticed in the titles of the episodes under the tree there were various “white balls”. That’s the hikari no dama. Once you collect them all you get Ushio. Sounds like some kind of pokemon game but it was interesting to see that when I had completed the game as well. Now I finally know what that Fuuko scene was, I skipped it in the game cause I was so tired of hearing her voice
I know I didn’t cover Kotomi or Tomoyo or Yukine but they just looked the same to me. I mean the difference at least with Kotomi she was driving a car (presumeably in America) but with Tomoyo she just…stood there. Yukine was still in that stupid bar waching a bunch of thugs arm wrestling. Yea they all kinda got shafted, but no I really don’t care. Aside from Nagisa’s ending, my only other favorite “main girl” storyline end was Kyo’s. The rest of my favs were all the sub-stories in the After Story arc. Anyway really great ending, I’ll give KyoAni that. I just wish that the great job they did with the 2nd half of after story they would have done with the first half and the first series while we’re at it. Was there a director change midway? Did someone finally kick the troll director in the ass and tell him to get back to work? Who knows, regardless whoever you are, thank you. ﾄﾞｫ━m(*´Д｀)m━ﾓｫ!!
A final note next week (or whenever the hell it airs) there will be a special about how Nagisa met Tomoya from her POV.
