Episode 19 of CLANNAD ~AFTER STORY~ served as the perfect continuation to the events of episode 18.
But that wasn't the only special thing in this particular episode.
That's right. After about a 34 episode absence, we get to see Fuko Ibuki brightening our screens with her old starfish fetish and new plans for making Ushio her little sister.
I thought they might have had a moment where Tomoya somehow remembers his encounters with her from his school life given the larger role she had in the anime, but I guess it weren't to be.
