Clannad ~After Story~ 1 – The Goodbye at the End of Summer

Woooooooooot! Yay!~~~~~~

IT’S FINALLY HERE!!!!!!!!

CLANNAD AFTER STORY IS HERE!

Well straight off we see Tomoya reminiscing of his past (it also shows the future as this is what happens xD Sorry to spoil the story :P) with him and his dad in a flower field.

We see that Nagisa has become more brave too and is pretty close to Tomoya.

Brave Nagisa o.o

Then it’s the opening song, pretty much the same format as last time but this time with the sailor fuku (sp?) which represents summer I guess. This brings back memories of when I played the game for 10 days straight to complete it 100%. Those were some good days.

The opening song is called “A Song to Pass the Time(時を刻む唄 Toki o Kizamu Uta) by Lia. It’s pretty much a remix of To the Same Heights (同じ高みへOnaji Takami e). It is one of my favourite songs though and it was once my ringtone xD But now it’s another CLANNAD song 😀 The little sponsored by thing also had the menu screen theme of the game too “Ushio” (汐).

Well straight away into the scene with have a humour scene with Akio trying to persuade Tomoya to play baseball for their town as they’ve been on a losing streak with rival towns.

Akio “You’re burning in my heart! Like The Fireball!”

Tomoya: “You’ve lost me”

Tomoya then talks to the drama club about the baseball team and gets Sunohara in the team along with Kyou (Kotomi too maybe as she said she wanted to join) with Ryou cheering Kyou and Nagisa cheering on Tomoya which sparks suspicion in Kyou and says they’re like lovers but Nagisa and Tomoya hide this.

They then go to talk Tomoyo in, not before Sunohara gets kicked of course 😀

They then get Yoshino to join and Sunohara gets whacked again when he decides to “cheer” Yoshino out. However he turns him down anyway but Tomoya makes up some crap about Sunohara always looking up to Yoshino and not ever being able to come back to the town again or something which leaves Nagisa and Sunohara crying lol. This makes him join.

They then ask Misae-san and Sunohara asks her energetically to join but is turned down straight away. Sunohara then gets hit again by Tomoyo to shut him up. Now that’s Misae in after convincing by Tomoyo in how she looks up to her.

Misae-san!

Misae-san!

Nagisa suggests inviting Tomoyo’s father but Tomoyo declines quickly.

It seems Mei-chan will join the team too but when she sees the real Yoshino she ends up hiding behind Tomoya.

Seems this is the baseball team:

Baseball team complete

Baseball team complete

Akio gives a “friendly” warning in the consequences of losing:

O

Akio's warning 😮

Akio is then the pitcher whilst Sunohara is the catcher and then complains how his hands cannot take it anymore xD

Sunohara gets out straight away, the bases then become loaded and it ends up being Tomoyo’s turn to bat. She hits it out of the stadium which gets them 4 runs.

The other team then somehow through the bat at Akio’s leg and injures him (really doubt it was accidental).

Foul!

Foul!

Akio then changes the pitcher to…

Huh?

Huh?

Tomoya goes out and then Kotomi uses her crazy calculations to actually run to first base lol.

Calculations #2

Calculations #3

Akio: “No outs, first and third bases! Who’s up next?” *Nagisa walks in* “I see. It’s you. Go for a squeeze.”

Nagisa: “S-quiz, what kinda quiz is that?”

Akio: “-_- Oh forget it, just go and give your best shot!”

*Nagisa out*

Next up is Tomoyo again.

Akio: ” Well, whatever. Our main weapon, Tomo-pyon, is up, anway.”

Tomoyo: “Don’t call me weird names.

Ryou: “Tomoyo-san, go for another home run!”

Tomoyo: “No, I want to go for a small, beautiful and girly hit.”

Girl-wannabe-Tomoyo

*Tomoyo out*

Tomoyo: “A girly hit is really difficult…”

Up next is Yoshino, he realises he hasn’t done anything so he smashes it.

Yoshino power!

Yoshino power!

Yoshino attack!

Yoshino attack!

Yoshino: “I’m the only one who hasn’t managed anything up to now. For the children’s sake… I’ll definitely hit it! This is it! A gift from me! *Standing there* Children! This is the only gift I can give you now. A formless gift that you call a ‘memory’. I don’t have any money… And I can’t give you something tangible… Even so… *OUT!*

-_-

-_-

Guess he’s too caught up his emotional speeches 😄

Nagisa is up again and manages to hit it, Tomoyo then goes out. Now it’s up to Yoshino again, he repeats his speech again after smashing it but this time he’s walking and not just standing there xD

Carrying on before… “But even so… Even if it isn’t tangible… a memory is something that will continue to be with you! This is what I believe.” He walks all the way base before the catcher asks “Umm… Are you done?” and Yoshino runs off after saying “Yeah, thanks.” lol.

Mei-chan’s up again and is moved by Yoshino’s words and manages to get onto a base. It’s Tomoya up again. The whole team supports him and it seems he manages to hit it as they have a celebration afterwards. Sunohara then asks Tomoya if Sanae-san is Nagisa’s sister and Tomoya replies with “Something like that.”

Smart Sunohara

Trust Sunohara to be smart...

Celebrate good times, Come on!

Celebrate good times, Come on!

It seems Tomoya did hit the ball as it shows it after the scene.

Tomoya attack!

Tomoya attack!

Who doesn't want to be Tomoya? XD

Who doesn't wanna be Tomoya? 😄

There is a short clip of the Illusionary World again showing the robot looking up the sky, but this quickly ends and leads onto the ending song.

The ending song once again features pictures of Dango and show all the characters in a line. The tune is a new tune is seems but I’m not really into it.  Incase anyone wanted to know though, it’s called “Torch” by Lia again.

The preview shows Sunohara trying to get a girlfriend. In the game, he is hooked up with Sanae-san pretending to be an older sister of Nagisa but Sunohara becomes so obsessed with her that Mei-chan becomes fed up and starts to treat Tomoya as her brother but Sunohara misunderstands this and thinks that they are lovers and becomes annoyed as he thought Mei-chan would be alright if she was with Tomoya, his best and most reliable friend. However, he understands what happens afterwards and all is well. Not sure what will happen in the anime but I highly doubt that will happen.
