I think I had to suffer even more since i think the game was worst than the anime.

The single most interesting part of an otherwise mediocre series. School Days is a prime example of a terrible visual novel-to-anime adaptation.

I have never played a Visual Novel but I am started to get interested. Are they generally just games you can buy? I can read Japanese so I wouldn't even need to wait for the translations but I can't say I've ever seen something like even recent VNs on amazon.co.jp so I wonder where I could buy them? Legal only PLEASE, I work in the software industry so I don't want to steal some other guy's programming. Thanks.

That ending really makes you wanna make a thread about it, apparently, this is the fourth one I've seen here. -___-

Only anime I've watched and needed a mental wipe at the end.



Worst tv show I've ever seen. (But I understand how people would like it, it's weird that way.)

You might want to try MangaGamer then. They have a variety of VNs in Japanese and English. You can also try Katawa Shoujo if you haven't already. It's free and in English, though I think there is a Japanese port.

That's a good question, I'm also very interested in digital narratives :-) visual novels are similar to interactive novels/multi-modal fiction, wherein the protagonists' decisions influence his/her interactions with secondary characters. What fascinates me, is that animation studios have discussed developing anime into visual novels, so as to further expand the characterisation/ explore multifarious plot directions. From what I have read, visual novels were borne out of a demand for dating simulators (bishojo and eroge) though after the Miyazaki case, VN sales took a nosedive and the government took extreme measures to scrutinise and sanitise most games under development. Key is probably best known for designing VNs with a more intricate plot (and often develop both PG and adult versions based on the same story). Clannad is their most acclaimed effort but Kanon, Tomoyo, and Little Busters (not the 'Ecstasy' version) are also very popular (I've recently played Higurashi: When They Cry and am looking to order Little Busters!). I'm linking the Visual Novel Database here, it's probably the most comprehensive VN list I've found (http://vndb.org/). Having just started Japanese lessons, I think visual novels are super to practice with (if a tad expensive!).

Thanks for the links! Will check them out.

Thanks for the link! I agree, playing games is a great way to learn Japanese because it gives you a reason to want to learn it, if there isn't a translation out yet. I found that to be a great motivator for me with manga which is often 6 months, years or more behind or just not available in English. Now I just read manga in Japanese.

And to get back on topic, I watched School Days entirely without subs (thanks Crunchyroll for letting me turn them off!) which is also both great practice and enjoyable and you can concentrate your vision on the artwork instead of just reading the whole time so I didn't miss one drop of black blood from the ending LOL
