This route was…flawed!
Misae is a fairly average character, her most outstanding trait is her infinite patience for the bullshit of the Rugby Club and Tomoya, and aside from that, her just, in general ‘perfect’ aura, she’s cheerful, nice, smells nice, and helpful just in general. This is, in a sense, the biggest flaw with her character, with such a solid core to it she has no real conflict to shake her character up, even in the past, she only one gets really upset over something, and it takes only one scene to spring her back to full force.
She’s aight, but not tooooo intresting.
Like the character, the route is…flawed. Tomoya gets way too into Misae with way too little provocation, one scene he’s telling her to drop kick people and next scene he’s gushing over her oppai, I found it really jarring and not solid at all so I’ll just chalk it up to mommy issues and move on.
Whoops Nagisa stole the route just like she did common, I cannot wait for her route.
I really have nothing to say about the the flashback story, it’s a nice story and stuff, but what is it’s point to Clannad, it has nothing to do with Tomoya, the only real purpose I can think for it in the long run is showing the power the light orbs have
Also if you really push your luck, Misae/Shima has parrelels to Tomoya/Nagisa, the former are aggressive, confident in conversations And have blue hair and the latter have determination to see a certain goal finished, but lack the strength to do it alone without the former pushing them.
I must say though, that Shima’s crying lines in his last scene with Misae are amazingly voiced, like that is some absolutely solid 10/10 voice acting there, totally genuine sounding!
Also Yuki is best girl.
Cute short story that I struggle to find has a connection to Clannad as a whole, worth the small amount of time it asked of me, I give it a Nice Smelling Futon/10.
