Let me put this in a way that most people would understand.
"School Days has nothing to cry about."

While I would consider crying to be going too far for School Days, I think this anime, and mainly Makoto, are very misunderstood.

The first thing I need to establish is that sex is a drug. The major difference is that you can emotionally hurt a lover, unlike a regular drug. Although I have never really been a sex addict, I am a chronic (as in continuous) addict. I understand Makoto's mindset very well as a result. He started off all innocent, and then once he got a taste of his "drug," he couldn't stop. Right before Sekai killed him he was thinking about how he had gotten to that point. I think that the following scenes flushed that out of most people's minds. He realized that he had gotten out of control, wanting more and more without even realizing it.

This whole anime took place in a single semester, I believe. That really isn't a very long time to get sucked into something like that before realizing how fucked up it all is. Frankly Makoto is the most normal one out of the three of them. He really didn't deserve to die. I think if people took the time to think about it they would realize this.

This contains spoilers~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






Ok. i don't care if anyone disagrees with me. Its basically a tragic story. End.
People say Makoto was pathetic. Yeah. But think about it as a human. If you were in his shoes what would you do? If he had dated Kotonoha and avoid Sekai, wouldn't Sekai get pissed off and attack Kotonoha anyways or Makoto at that? Also I was moved a bit about Kotonoha's part. She was stressed already from bullying. I mean can't we share sympathy towards her at all? Haven't we all learn bullying isn't cool? Am i the only "human" here? Makoto wasn't that bad in my point. He did some dumb things like not deciding a girl and stay put. But that does not mean he should be killed. Sekai....just didn't get it. She did not get that she had to move on. instead she decided to steal him away from Kotonoha and hide it. I mean isn't that already bad move for her? She was stubborn. Her stubbornness got her into jealousy and anguish. I mean look at the ending. He threw away the food she ate. Why should he die for that? So what? He ate at someone else's house. Whoopie do. Sekai was so dumb that she flew with anger and "accidentally" killed him. I quoted that because she was basically going nuts in anger.
Now if we want to agree on something here's the other part.

Makoto: He was not bright to begin with. He was not able to confess to Kotonoha. I bet if he had done that on his own without Sekai's help, this could have been avoided. But it could have still happened knowing Sekai being an idiot and forgetting who she's killing. And at times, this guy is actually mature. Remember the Valentine OVA episode? Sure its an OVA and not specific in the original show but still, he shows a lot of maturity. He was able to withstand being a peepingtom. That is quite a smart choice. Whereas his brainless fart-face, raping friend (I hate that guy I'm not going to name him) apparently loves a pervert. I say he should have died.

Sekai: Sekai again is WAY to stubborn and easily jealous. Her jealously blinded her so much she killed the guy she apparently loved. Wow. Smooth move. If she had asked him out in the first place, things may have gone differently. And I mean that.

I will note that I do know the visual novel of School Days. And I know there are good and bad endings. I'm only stating from the anime point of view.

Kotonoha: Even though I give more support to her, her obsession clearly shows the issue on her side. She is overly obsessed and too clingy on Makoto. And if you really want to bring the visual novel, I'll say this, Kotonoha is driven so much into despair of Makoto's abandoning her that she utterly leaps off the roof of her apartment.


Also in the visual novel: Anyone know that Kotonoha was the only person who got murdered by BOTH Makoto and Sekai? I know its not shown but it is clearly hinted well in it. I mean I think Kotonoha has the most disturbing deaths in the whole thing.

Anyhow, i don't care if you disagree with me or not. I'm just using plain common explanations using real-life like scenarios. I will point this out, of all horror animes, this is probably the most realistic and likely occurring event animes out there. I mean this stuff could actually really happen. Heck a murder happened a day before the last episode was aired back then where a 15-16 year old girl murdered her father with an axe.

I don't think Makoto is to be blamed. I think Kotonoha is merely just a sad tragic figure. And Sekai is a brainless idiot. Also what would you do if you were stuck in Makoto's shoes? Would you pick Kotonoha and hurt Sekai and perhaps have her kill you or Kotonoha perhaps or have Kotonoha go utterly depressed and sad and be forever alone by herself. I had the good ending with Kotonoha and Makoto and I loved it. Kotonoha is getting bullied and Makoto saves her by defending her. That is what I call beyond maturity and perhaps some badass attitude. And now, I'll stop talking.

Oh and almost forgot. Don't even mention those "harem" endings in the visual novel. Those don't count. Those are for those weird fans who love having both girls cause they can't decide. >.<

It would be probably avoided for awhile although Makoto being the sex addict that he is will most likely cheat anyways. I have not seen the OVA episode (skipped it) so I wasn't well aware his maturity in it thou.


Sekai: Sekai again is WAY to stubborn and easily jealous. Her jealously blinded her so much she killed the guy she apparently loved. Wow. Smooth move. If she had asked him out in the first place, things may have gone differently. And I mean that.

What if she was rejected?

The case involving the 16 year old girl with the axe had a completely different moral. But you're right, stuff like this is possible in real life.

And now, I'll stop talking.

If I was in Makoto's shoes, I would stay loyal the whole time and work out problems one step @ a time. The part involving Sekai should be avoided as quickly as possible. If Kotonoha was getting bullied, I would try to solve it peacefully (unless the other party decides to attack first).

Well anyways, the School Days anime (can be watched here on CR) was tragic indeed imo but all I have to say to the ending is:

The only tears I shed was when I looked back at the 6 hours I wasted watching the damned thing.

You can justify the characters' motives all you want, but the script was lazy and the plot was cliche. I didn't care about ANY of the characters, and I seriously thought the ending was an OK attempt at dark humour.

Ends up people thought it was tragedy or horror or something.
