Nagisa runs into problems when she tries to revive the drama club, but Sunohara tries to stick up for her and encourage her to keep going, although Nagisa is reluctant
This episode was pretty good. It didnâ€™t really get into any of the serious aspects of anyone yet, maybe a little with Sunohara outburst, but for the most part this episode was a rather layed back episode, kind of setting up the situation. It did have some great comedy though. I laughed extremely hard at this episodes â€œhumor bitâ€ I donâ€™t know how else to describe it; although this series has a lot of comedy throughout most episodes seem to have one joke that is funniest. This of course being the bit with Sunohara being called homosexual. I thought it was great, just the first joke where Tomoya said this to Nagisa, but when she was trying to cover for Tomoya, saying sheâ€™s his girlfriend and so on, it was great.
The one thing that interested me is how they donâ€™t seem to be very obvious about whose arc they are going into next. This episode almost seemed to focus an arc on Sunohara, which actually isnâ€™t uncommon for a visual novel game to do, have an arc on the best friend, being a non romantic, arc, but having some drama. It could be his small arc, seeing as how they are introducing his sister. Still, Iâ€™m not even sure if itâ€™s an arc concerning Sunohara, as this episode was more about the drama club, which fits under Nagisaâ€™s arc. However Iâ€™m pretty sure sheâ€™ll be saved for last. So itâ€™ll likely indeed be Sunoharaâ€™s short arc that leads into one of the main ones. Itâ€™s not bad that they arenâ€™t making it obvious; in fact itâ€™s rather interesting to see.
From the preview, it seems as if it could go into either Kyou/Ryouâ€™s arc or Tomoyo. I really liked the short moment Tomoya and Tomoyo had (why the hell would they name two characterâ€™s so similarly damnit) She did show some signs of falling for him, which could explain why she asked if he was going out with anyone in the preview. Then of course Kyou referenced the same thing. Again, Iâ€™m sure sheâ€™s asking for her sister but there will be some drama from her feelings. Either way, it doesnâ€™t seem clear where they will go but if I had to bet Iâ€™d say Kyou/Ryou, as itâ€™s less obvious that Tomoyo likes Tomoya and sheâ€™s played a smaller role thus far.
