Clannad ~After Story~ – 21

Tomoya adjusts his entire life to take care of a sick Ushio whose illness is more serious than he had thought.

Impressions:

What the hell is this show trying to do, kill me? I was just sitting there feeling absolutely horrible while watching this thing. They spend a long time setting up Ushio’s character and how important she is to Tomoya, show her being entirely cute and having him just live his life for her and then they go and make her so horribly sick that she looks like she’s going to die any minute. I really could not stand it if Ushio dies. I would just absolutely hate this show. Now, although I’m usually quite pessimistic when thinking about how things are going to turn out in all honesty I don’t think she is going to die, but I would go absolutely ballistic if she did. Still, they did a damn good job of making me worry A LOT over her. There wasn’t a lot more to this episode other than me just being worried about what was going to happen. I’ve come to care so much for Ushio and feel for Tomoya’s situation that I was so afraid of what could happen to Ushio, I didn’t even think of what’s likely to happen or anything like that, I was so caught up in the moment.

Although I probably should have realized this before, I didn’t think that the next episode was going to be the final one. The first season had the same amount of episodes so I guess it makes sense that this one would too, but I was expecting there to be 24 or 26. Seeing the preview say that the next episode is the final one came as a bit of a shock, as in my mind when I was watching the show up to this point I kept thinking about how things would progress at a pace giving that there were more episodes. Seeing Ushio in such a bad condition I figured they had plenty of time to get her better, then…BOOM. Still, I’m sure they will use the miracle theme that they’ve kind of touched on in the past of this series. Although surprisingly not a lot, it’s still there and has been sued before so I think Ushio will be fine. However I expect it to be emotional and I’ll be on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens even if I have a strong feeling one way or the other.
