i was posting on the topic of the worst anime or drama you ever saw, and School Days kept coming up. So i'm thinking that i will have to watch it to see how bad it can really be. This maybe a chance to save me from a bad decision.

HORRIBLE main character that makes the show unbearable with his actions...Among many other things.

People don't like seeing the reality of things. Humans are not perfect. They have flaws. And School Days basically have that realism that people don't expect from high school romance.


Compare School Days to something like "Say I love You"... The characters in say i love you are so goodygoody two shoes, that it becomes like a fantasy world rather that depicting realism. And people seem to like that kind of thing... where characters are good to one another, problems fixed by saying a few words here and there.

It's not like that in real life. I guess School Days reminds people of real life too much.



In my opinion, School Days is one of the best anime ever created. The main male and two female leads are the most realistic characters ever created. No other characters can make me feel so furious and want to go on a killing spree as much as the the characters in School Days.

That's a sign of good writing and story telling.

This makes no sense. You want to watch it simply because people say it is bad and so you are expecting more bad opinions of it to somehow change that instead of reinforcing your decision?

Why not ignore the opinions of others and just watch the show to form your own? Even if people say it is horrible it doesn't mean you yourself won't actually enjoy it. Is this just a successful attention grab or something?

School Days really isn't that bad of an anime. It's just that people REALLY hate Makoto (main character) and that sort of clouds their judgment of the show in general. If you take a step back and actually look at School Days for how things played out and the story itself, you see that the creators did a pretty good job. It had a pretty solid story and stuck to a theme of emphasizing the dark nature that lies within humans. All in all people don't like it because in general people want to see a happy ending and School Days is just about as far as you can get from a happy ending. If people took a look at it objectively rather than subjectively, they would see that School Days is actually a decent anime.

In School Days you have one of those rare animes where every single one of the characters lacks any redeemable qualities.

You will either love it or hate it.

Just watch it and you'll see why people say the things they do about the show.

Also, I think this thread should be moved to the Anime Forum side.

Thanks so much, i don't have much love for dramas, not that i hate all of them. But to make sure i won't like it add high school. These to things separate i may like the show, but both there is a slim chance in hell, unless i just broke-up with someone, and or drunk.
