List of Clannad episodes

3 on 3 is the sixteenth episode of Clannad. The episode was first broadcast in Japan on 31 January 2008, and in the United States on 21 June 2009.


When Mei shows up, she cleans her brother's filthy room, but cannot stay at her Youhei's all-boy dorm, so Nagisa offers to have her stay at her home while she is in town. Tomoya and Youhei easily get Kyou to help with the basketball game, and she gets pumped up after a comment about pairing up with such loser guys. For half the game, Tomoya and the others play against first-year rookies, and manage to lead by eleven points, but then the basketball team switches with their starters and the score evens out. In the very last seconds of the game, Tomoya manages to make the last shot and win the game. Afterwards, Mei goes back to her hometown.

Major events[]

  • Tomoya plays basketball for the first and last time since injuring his shoulder.
  • Mei meets Akio, Sanae, Ryou, Kyou, Kotomi and Tomoyo for the first time.
  • Mei visits again



  • Technically, the player defending Tomoya in the final seconds could have blocked his shot without getting penalized, resulting in the Basketball Club winning the game.
  • This is the first of two instances Tomoya, Youhei and Kyou play together on a team.
