Well, in my opinion, it's pretty reasonable to cry about how bad it was.

It started out very promissing, and i had my hopes up for a great drama. Shortly after episode 1, School Days tried to do something beyond it's reach: it could have stayed as a simple, yet depressing drama about a girl's first love, which was an almost guaranteed successful formula (especially considering that the first episode did an awesome job setting that up), but that's not what happened.

The drama slowly changed to tragedy, and Kotonoha developed into a yandere. Since the characters are not likeable (i personally think that part of all that happened was also Kononoha's fault, so it's not like she was totally a victim), and the series was not directed properly, it was very disappointing. Instead of feeling depressed, i felt anger.

It does not help that i watched Ef - a Tale of Memories just before starting School Days (compare, for example, both drama scenes with the cellphone). If you want School Days done in the right way, watch True Tears.

tl;dr
- Episode 1 was very good, then it went downhill.
- The characters were unlikeable.
- The development went in the wrong way.
- Ef - a Tale of Memories did some similar scenes much better.
- True Tears is what School Days could have become if done in the right way.


I agree with this ..

True Tears was a sad show if you ask me but why did you mention true tears out of all the anime's instaed of lets' shuffle ?I only got school days vibes when Ai-chan did that freaky move on Shin .. that was the only school days part for me ..lolll

Ah, it's because i think School Days had potential to be great if it wasn't for all the crazyness that dragged it down. True Tears was for me a good example of how to develop good drama without going overboard (though, like you said, it ALMOST went that way in some parts).

Shuffle! didn't catch my interest for long, so i dropped on episode 12 of the first series. If it's about yanderes, my current favorite is THAT ONE side character in Shigofumi.

For me, I started watching School Days after watching Higurashi. So, I thought it was going to be like Higurashi. Instead, to me it seemed like a screwed up version of Rosario Vampire.

In my opinion School days was a good/heavy drama(one of my favourites ) and I must say not everyone is going to like it unless your a fan of those heavy drama shows like KGNE and school days..I agree with you that it went way too far (like the whole blood scene on the floor while raping katanoha)and it was way too preverted on the kissing parts .Not that I have a problem with this but it was too much in my opinion .The characters were all so shameful ,desperate sex addicts .I agree katanoha did this to herself though ..poor Sekai ...

As for true tears -one crazy girl ,one emo girl ,one desperate girl ,what more can you ask for ?It was a good show with realsitic character's .I felt sad for all three girls because of thier situation's .Shin had a hard situation because those three girl were emotionly troubled (includin Ai )and I loved his choice at the end .Some ppl said that true tears is not tragic but I think it's a bit tragic .

Everytime someone compares school days to true tears ,Ai comes to mind and I must say I haven't seen a girl assaulting a guy in anime before aside from school days and KGNE- Ai=Sekai ,she's in the same category as sekai and Mitsuki from Kimi ga nozmu eien.Don't get me wrong though ,I felt really bad for her cuz she was one twisted bitch and never stood a chane against the greatness of Hiromi and the cuteness of Noe and thier fans .Some even compare her to sakai ..If this anime was overrated ,Ai wouid make it into the most hated girl's list ..

You dropped shuffle ?you shouid've caried on with it at least till ep 19 and 20 ,Keade turned the show into tragedy with her desperte moves on Rin T T..

Actually there's much lulz in that show, especially at the end. Pathetic people who'd suffer pathetic fates, I see nothing to feel sad about.

I mean one was a man-whore.
The other slept with him knowing very well that Kotonoha or whatever her name was with him.
And the last one was just batshit insane.
The others, well, they weren't any better.
