Finally, it’s about to be released. In 2 weeks time that is. XD But at least, we have info now about the release date. And crap, that’s a whole lot of time. But sheeesh, what can I do but to wait. Oh Lia, I’m beginning to like your songs more and more. Hope the single is as good as the “teaser” TV Size versions.
And oh, I hope somebody transcribes Toki wo Kizamu Uta in the piano. ^^ Arigatou!

Farewell to the End of Summer



 I’ve waited too long for this series to start, and now finally, it’s here.

But I won’t give much of a review on this episode. Let’s say this is just another introduction – there’s nothing much really. I could easily classify this as a filler episode at the very start, if not for the closing moments of the episode. (There are still lots of funny moments as always. n_n)

So the theme remains to be close-relationship ties among the moe friends of Tomoya and Nagisa’s parents as well (included also are the other characters from season 1).  The episode is just about a baseball game and what’s striking from this episode is the support of one to the other, especially to Tomoya (since we know he can’t raise his shoulder up). In the end, he was the one who hit the ball (dunno if it was homerun) to send Nagisa (who else) home and a score to win the game.

Overall, a really entertaining episode and I’d say it’s not a great start, but not really horrible. Hoping it would live up to its expectations on the future episodes. Hooray. n_n

Clannad After Story OP/ED

Clannad OP [Toki wo Kizamu Uta – Lia] :

I absolutely love this OP. =D Just how I felt about Tabi no Tochuu. n_n

Kimi dake wo
Suki de ita yo
Kaze de me ga nijinde
Tooku naru yo…

Clannad ED [TORCH – Lia] :


The tone is so catchy. Like it. n_n

Further Announcements: (Still needs confirmation though) AnimeNewsNetwork says that Clannad After Story will be aired in 24 episodes, and not 13 as pre-supposedly assumed. Hooray for that. n_n

Clannad ~After Story~

Words have it that this Clannad ~After Story~, believed to be a 13-episode second season of Clannad (all information still doubtful), will be released next week, 16th of July (this one’s sure). Promo commercials have been given out to give a backdrop of what it will contain and it really seems this one will focus on the “other world”.

I can’t wait to watch this as I have been a huge, huge fan of Clannad myself. ^^, Those who have played Clannad said that this is the best of Clannad. I’ll be expecting a lot then. ^^
