In the first few episodes, when all the characters were being slowly introduced, Fuuko interested me the most. Of coruse, I was pleased to see that her arc came first, where in Kanon and Air, I had to wait until the end for my faves (Nayuki and Misuzu.) I don’t necessarily know if Fuuko will remain my favorite, not knowing much about the other girl’s backgrounds, and being rather intrigued by some of them, but anyway, that’s besides the point. Clannad is already being successful at being depressing, seeing how this episode ended. It was rather optimistic at first, presenting the thought of Fuuko waking up someday and making firneds, like Tomoya and Nagisa. It even seemed like Ibuki-sensei’s wedding plans would be worked out soon. But of coruse, it couldn’t last. People are forgetting Fuuko and being unnable to see her. Now all her hard work in distributing the starfish and getting people to come to the wedding seems like it could all be in vain. So this presents the question of just what she is. It’s pretty likely that she was somehow projecting her spirit, but I guess as her condition is deteriorating, she’s becoming less and less able of this. I wonder if soon, even the people she was closest to will forget about her. I sure hope not, but I’m expecting the conclusion to this story to be as depressing as ever for a Key anime. Of course, this wasn’t all depressing. Nagisa and Fuuko arguing over whether the Dango Daikazoku or starfish were cuter was one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while. Especially Nagisa’s plagiarism line. The Dango are cuter, for the record.

@JS- I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the time to watch that episode yet, but from what I’ve heard, it sounds painful.

Hopefully the game had a way to get a good ending I wish I could actually play half these games.
