Although it was a bright spring and Sakura trees is blooming, it is still felt gloomy for Okazaki Tomoya. While lazily climb to his school through the Sakura lane, he saw a girl mumbling with herself, “… can I still loves this place, …” without even think he just ramble out “Then found another interesting things then.” while keep walking through her. The girl looks at him for awhile, and start walking toward their school. At that time their world seems to be filled with color again although they don’t realize it yet. And yet the story begins…
That was the first scene of CLANNAD, animated version of the visual novel games by Key. I really like some of the Key stuff and Kyoto Animations seems make this story more alive in its anime. After the game out in 2004 seems like many people waiting for the anime to comes out, I didn’t really know it at first until the anime pop out that is.
Like another bishoujo games this anime also feature a guy who, in the game, try to hook up with one of the girl (hentai scene included of course *evil smirk*, but of course the chop it in the public anime version) but although they have same main objective the plot is something else. Its always interesting how they build up the drama and at the same time the funny scenes along the series. Also the characters, although the sets isn’t much different somehow they can make it really unique one and another. I almost forgot, these stories also comes with so many themes, from family to friendship, dreams and many other things, I can even quotes a bunch from this story. You have to see it to believe it~
So to get hooked up you must “approach” them or help the one that approach you. So the story basically ran through the main character problem and solving the girls problems. But like common adaptation too the anime gonna end with the main heroine despite there’re many choices of girls in the game. I can hear those fans from other girls booing right now~ :P. I think Nagisa is way better than the one in Kanon (many people critics coz she’s (looks like) a loli XD though I think she’s cute) at least she got boobs XD hehehe~. I can’t blame them coz the specs of the other girls are awesome. Personally I like Kotomi, but many people love Kyou or Tomoyo.
I’ll wrote about those girls later but for now lets review the episode 18
CLANNAD – episode 18: Strategy for Comeback
It’s the final arc of Tomoyo I think, as the title suggested Tomoya prepare some strategy for Tomoyo’s school presidential election for the sake of Theater Club while Nagisa is still bed rested.
Since Tomoya was suspended because he hold those gangster to help Tomoyo, She even came to his house and even cook for him, many funny things happen afterwards, since the twins Kyou and Ryou also came and so does Kotomi (and Fuuko even add his problems LMAO~).
Back to the school his strategy is to restore Tomoyo name in school so he have her challenge every sports club in school and since she is very gifted in sports (man, she can even kick a scooter and its rider up in the air XD) her victories kept adding her fan (especially girls).
You can’t deny that she is HOT~
And all the girls love her~ lol
And finally Nagisa shows up, but seeing how close Tomoya and her; Kyou, Ryou and Tomoyo realize his feeling to her although he didn’t admit that to them.
All I can say~ DAMN YOU TOMOYA~!!! shot down three girls at once~ T__T this is fairly new but seeing girls cry can really cut my heart~ but I know it’ll happen though.
And they look so happy~
As summary once again the episode really can make you laugh, cry and touch your heart at the same time~ as usual, but its what we waiting for.
My Score 8/10
