An extended Illusory World scene at the beginning of the episodes serves as a little reminder that this is still the After Story that is being the focus of this second season, and while we might not actually be in the meat of the After Story scenes in the series yet, it is an indication that there is still much more to come. Otherwise, there’s still nothing much happening in the way of the main storyline, and this episode is the start of what is apparently the Sunohara Siblings Arc. Strangely enough for the uninitiated, it is often considered one of the better arcs in the original CLANNAD VN; I have no idea how that’s going to work, but let’s go along for the ride anyway.
CLANNAD ~After Story~, Episode 2.
(Speaking of which, isn’t that the AIR peach juice and the tiramisu juice there?)
Don’t worry, let’s give it a shot. It’ll be fine, it’s very simple, so don’t be scared….
And she’s on a roll here, taking the chance to smack even Tomoya with a good one. 10/10 for momentum.
I guess Hinano-sama can be thankful that I’ve unfortunately run out of Hinano jokes for the moment…. :p
And the clincher which shocks even the Dirty Duo.
Usually, I would have thought Sanae is just being Sanae….but because of my stupidity in spoiling myself on a certain SEEN in the Baka-Tsuki translation, I know this is not even the most misleading thing she is capable of. It makes one wonder whether she is simply just Sanae, or whether there is a LOT more to her than it seems on the surface…heck, she’s a woman who’s probably pushing 40, and still retains the ability to charm her prospective son-in-law AND his friend. That’s a power that will tempt even the best of women, especially if you consider that the woman knows that such power will not last much longer….. XD
I’m not the only one to have noticed that Nagisa’s change in hairstyle is clearly not for the worse; I believe there was even one who said that "from imouto to woman with just a single accessory".
Still, for all the points she scored with her hairclip, Nagisa pales in comparison to her mother, so much so that the common consensus amongst fellow animebloggers is that Sanae is the main draw of the episode. As there’s little more I can do to add to the chorus, I’ll leave you guys with a dedication to all of you members of the Sanae Cosplay Fan Club.
Nagisa’s mom has got it goin’ on,
She’s all I want and I’ve waited for so long
Nagisa, can’t you see you’re just not the girl for me…
I know it might be wrong, but I’m in love with Nagisa’s mom!
Back. Only in anime can a MILF completely disguise herself simply by donning a seifuku and megane with a change of hairstyle, but as it IS anime, Mei naturally can’t see past her disguise. What’s most interesting though is the expression on Mei-chan’s face; I can’t even tell if she’s concerned or jealous, or even feeling something else I haven’t thought of yet. In any case, the Sunohara Siblings Arc continues in the next episode, and we’ll see how the whole charade goes from there. It’s not a particularly substantial episode, so I’ll be waiting to see next week just what it was that makes the Sunohara Siblings arc such an acclaimed one amongst the game vets.
Until next week. Ascaloth, out.
