Oh, OK, gotcha. I can see there are some parts in this arc with the potential to hit the viewer pretty hard - it just didn't do it for me (not as much, anyways).
I didn't expect that the very next episode after Miyazawa's arc would start the first of many "ugly cries."
To be shamefully honest, even having watched Clannad
3 or 4 times (I lost count...), I don't remember that part very well at all.
The first thing in the main arc which really grabbed me was seeing Nagisa regularly come over to Tomoya's place to fix him up some dinner. I thought, "Oh wow, that's so sweet - they're like a young married couple! Never seen that in an anime before".
For me, the first moment which opened the floodgates was the proposal scene. People are such beautiful messes and can prop each other up when they're at their lowest...

I know the feeling
. It's the same for me with ef
- I've found many other magnificent animes over the years, but I still admire the Tale of Memories
with all my heart.
