>>10716101>I also I didn't feel excited at all when Tomoyo sacrificed her career for Tomoya. I... actually kind of raged to that too. Oh well. To each it's own.
Way to miss the point, anon.
What happiness would she have gained by continuing on with her education, get a high profile career and continue to work simply because society dictates that she should do that with her life?
She clearly states that she feels no ill will towards her classmates, yet feels isolated, despite having many friends, since none of them had the same experiences as her. If she went to a big name university, the loneliness she felt would only continue. This is why she continued to hang around with Sunohara and Okazaki because it was an escape from the elitist attitude and she truly felt as ease around them.
She realized that the most important thing in life is not the money or the prestige...rather it's the relationships you forge with people you love (Which is the major fucking theme in CLANNAD). She chose love and family rather than be on the pedestal that society put her on. She chose happiness.
Too bad her after story got fucked up...;-;
