This has got to be the funniest episode of CLANNAD since … no, never mind, this is the funniest episode of CLANNAD since the beginning. How can you not enjoy an episode featuring everyone’s favorite loser Sunohara? Anyways, this week is about Sunohara looking for a fake girlfriend in order to have Mei stop worrying about him.
Ah, the sky is so pretty.
So, anyone mind telling me if After Story’s going to have 13 or 24 episodes? I’m really confused of how the number differs from place to place. Obviously, I’m going for the 24 episodes after the pace we’re doing. After all, next week’s episode still features Sunohara/Mei’s route.
Man did I love this particular scenes in the game. I always had Sunohara have a different stupid thing every time the option came up. The “toilet seat cover” one was my favorite. I kept on laughing when Sunohara showed up the next day saying “Yo Okazaki! And toilet seat cover.” And has anyone else noticed the amount of times Tomoya uses that hand pose?
Tomoya pose !
Man did I miss you Tomoya. Were you always that funny and sneaky? It must be one of his top joys in his life to play with Sunohara. Um yeah, I didn’t mean anything with that sentence by the way.
So basically Tomoya decides Sunohara should look for a fake girlfriend to introduce to Mei to stop her worrying. Sunohara gets convinced when Tomoya tells him he might seriously end up dating whoever accepts the job. The first candidate in sight turns out to be Ryou who refuses because it’s too embarrassing for her. Kyou shows up and beats the crap out of Sunohara.
This. Shot. Is. Gold.
I couldn’t stop laughing at how the whole Kyou pwning Sunohara scene was executed. Poor Sunohara knew he was going to get beat.
My personal favorite was when Sunohara had to go ask Tomoyo. I mean, seriously, look at that pose! Hi hi hoooooo ~ Tomoya’s face practically screams “How is this guy going to continue living as a human?” and Nagisa looks … well, earnestly worried. Thouugh I really can’t believe asking Tomoyo would lead to …
… such a fantasy from Sunohara. I love how Tomoyo just doesn’t acknowledge Sunohara’s existence. But I think it’s a little harsh on her side though. -glomps Youhei-
I know Nagisa had and Tomoya had a lot of cute expressions this episode but I still preferred Sunohara’s faces! He can be so damn adorable sometimes! … Well, all the time actually. To be very honest, I’d go out with a guy like him in RL. He’s funny and stupid but earnest at heart after all.
Asking Kotomi will not have anything good come out of it. It’s amazing how I’m starting to like Kotomi over Tomoyo now when I disliked her as much as Fuuko before. Yes, I’m happy Fuuko hasn’t shown up yet. Sorry, but I don’t wanna go through DOZO! HAVE A STARFISH! again. I’m dreading when I have to do her route in the game. -shivers-
Yeah, what the hell is that?! Asking Yukine really would’ve worked out if it weren’t for all her delinquent friends. Haha. Poor Sunohara! He’s only getting abused this episode. Why is it I’m pitying him more than laughing anyway?
Sunohara! Jump into mah arms!
Why are they so cute in this shot? Damnit, if this were RAW I’d have fun giving my own subs:
T: Hey Sunohara! Why don’t we make me your girlfriend!?
S: … HUH?!
T: Come on, I’ve been taking care of you for the past three years. Mei wouldn’t worry right?
S: But what about Nagisa?
T: Who careds. I only went out with her to try and make you jealous.
S: … O-o-okazaki ….
Okay. I’ll stop before I say anything crueler on behalf of Nagisa. Don’t worry Nagisa! I still love you! It’s just I’m a fangirl at heart and can’t help but do these things.
Here’s my apology: plugging your cuteness. You win it all Nagisa!
So after everyone else fails, who do we turn to? Sanae of course! The cosplay scene was so funny! Look at Tomoya in the back trying to hide his embarrassement! Sanae scores a lot of points this episode. Hey KyoAni! If you make Nagisa do the same thing in the right context her chances of winning SaiMoe will increase ten fold!
And so Sunohara further impresses me with his cuteness. He’s such a dork! I love dorks. Too much for my own good actually. I WANT A SUNOHARA UNIT!
Thank you for purchasing your new Sunohara Youhei Unit. Before programming him to your preferred setting you must first get him out of the box. There are many ways to do this most of them concerning shouting “There’s a cute girl waiting for you Sunohara!” or finding a Sanae Unit to say “Youhei-kun~”. When your Sunohara Unti jumps out of the box knock him out either Kyou or Tomoyo style to program him.
Your Sunohara Unit comes in a variety of different modes like: Idiot mode, dorky mode, dramatic mode, and so on. If you own a Tomoya Unit by any chance you might be able to unlock the famed BL MODE for your BL needs.
Hmmmm, this seems to be missing a certain something.
Hehe. Much better.
Ah ~ Megane always bring out the best in people. Looks like my glasses fetish applies to females as well! Glasses are so cute!
Mei is one jealous loli now! I can smell the drama seeping out of next weeks’ episode. I’m looking forward to it since I don’t know what’ll happen. I’m not far enough into the game for this.
Oh my Sunohara. You’re really seme in this shot.
Your Sunohara unit comes into two different BL MODES: Uke and Seme. And don’t forget the subcategories like “unwilling” “tsundere” “maso” … and the like.
Once again, this was a great episode. If everything continues on this way I’m bound to stay happy the whole series. Though, it’s going to hurt to see the light-heartedness disappear later on. KyoAni better not pull too hard on our heartstrings or I might actually cry. To be honest, the only anime I ever ever cried in was Air … which was animated by KyoAni. Conclusion: Only KyoAni can make me cry.
