2007 offers you the anime with the biggest WTF ending.Well actually not really since those who owns the game should realise that there is possibility for such ending.

When i first watched School Days,let's just say the impression i had is the same as other harem shows.

The main protagonist of the show,Mr Makoto loves sleeping around.He is also insensitive.While what he did was wrong and desrve some nice punch,i dont think he deserve such fate.

As the series progressed,the plot starts to build up and it is good.The animators did a pretty awesome job in portraying the various raw emotions for the characters.We also get to see Kotonoha slowly descends into madness.It is short and good.Definitely not just your typical harem anime.

I got to say,even though i have been half expecting the ending because of the delay due to a girl murdering her father with an axe,i still can't help but felt incredibly shocked.The ending will haunts you for a long time,and i somehow felt unsatisfied because Kotonoha with her mental illness is still out there,roaming free.She might do this to guys who cheated on her in the future

And what's with the black blood these days?It has been used in Myself;Yourself as well

Overall,School Days is worth watching.Ending may be shocking,but well..................................

The anime felt like just another harem, school life one, until it became skewed somewhere in the middle.

The fun rubbed off and it became rather disturbing, even more so than a lot of similarly themed anime, one reason is the art. The art looks like something you'd expect from a happy sunshiny anime, though I was proven wrong with Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, and now this.

It's worth watching, even if its disturbing. Though I'm pretty sure the game ended much happier and there was an equally happy sequel, Summer Days, for it. But then I guess the anime took the Kotonoha goes mad arc...

Okayyy...i only read the explanation offered by Wikipedia,and i was so disturbed already.I honestly can't imagine the reaction of the people who stuck with it until the end.The ending is kinda sick to me..What on earth was the creator thinking?*No offense meant*

ok the only reason i actually watched this to the end was because I had heard that the end was shocking. Well it didn't disappoint on the shocking and disturbing end. It was ok at first not really good but not bad either.

The anime was pretty good, it's not like any other anime i've seen. It got disturbing around the middle and the end was really harsh, shocking and mysterious. I don't think the 2 deserved that fate, and I really cannot imagine that kotonoha would do such a thing as kill someone.

I can't believe that this anime disturbed me for at least a week after I watched it. It's not horror which i would not dare to watch since i'm weak to that kind of stuff.

The plot was more similar to real life, i found. The characters are not as polite and hesitant as a normal girl in a anime would act, especially when the anime progresses.

Overall i would give it a 7/10

I never really took the anime all too seriously, I knew it was going to have a ending such as it had. I only watched it because it was going to have a funny ending. I skipped 3 episodes and went straight to the ending. The show actually made me go "WTF MATOKO!?" every episode and I go "Oh shii---", a lot. But I just didn't give a damn about the series, it dragged a bit to me. Yes it's short, but I felt it dragged... a wee bit. Black blood and censoring killed it, but there wasn't an epic fight between Sekai or Kotonoha. I never took this seriously, so no matter how cheesy it would get, I wanted to see it.

It got pretty stupid when it became a "love square" or whatever, it was fine as a love triangle. Plus how he manged to bring sluts over to fuck, just.. confuses me so much... O.o I saw nothing good about Matoko for them to all want to fuck him. He was the stereotypical shy pervert..

Maybe 7/10. The ending could've been more epic

First few episode is like a normal anime show.. Focus on a guy sorrounded by girls..totally boring.. but as I watched it more.. It tells a story about school life and premature sex. which have a great lesson on us. (those who goes to school).. And yah. The protagonist is freaking stupid. Having sex with a girl and another. It's like a Viva sex life.. but, it always have a consequence.. And as one girl gets pregnant. Then.. BOOM!!

The last episode is kinda gore though, not really suited for a 15 below watcher.. hahahah.. so... Kids, don't really have to rush on sex.. But if you're really rushing.. there's a thing called "condom". Hahahahah... lols. *smiles*

I'm not even through with this anime yet (on ep 7) I just have to get this nasty feeling out of me... vent if you will... (i'd watch it all the way through... but I need to sleep as of now...)

My head started to spin as soon as the relationship started to spin out with the first "practice".... And as soon as the 'Pool' episode ended.... I really didn't feel good about going through this... It's not this is badly made... Its not that this isn't gripping enough... quite contrary... the animators did such a good job at unveiling everything so intricately is making my head spin to much... It's gut wrenching, it makes me sick that I'm witnessing this... I almost don't want to have anything to do with this story... It's just such a terrible tragedy... I'm on the brink of tears, and an inch from ripping my hair out...

I guess this is what you call an emotional thriller... I'll add my last bit of opinion by tomorrow when I'm done with this... But it feels like it's gona take sometime to recover from this traumatic experience...

I did it... Though I'm not proud of it... I did it... I sat through it all... As Romeo said at first "the biggest WTF ending" ever, that I've ever come across...

Nothing ever is this surreal... In no book have I ever witnessed something this obscene, this grotesque, heartfelt, gripping, tragic, romantic, yet hateful anything ever... At times I felt like throwing objects across the room; I was biting my nails then my fingers; other times I felt like taking a sledgehammer to my computer, and yet at times I felt like placing a flower upon someone's grave. There is just so much overflow of emotion, I never saw it coming like that, as shocking as it did, as surreal as it did, it's almost frightening... I felt cold and scared at times, feeling the loathsome hate... I just can't say this was an ensemble worth commending, or a horror worth condemning...

Since I had to take a break in between the start to end... I had been going through in my head the day at school with anguish... Trying to understand what happened, and trying to predict what would happen... To put it shortly... I couldn't think... It scared me, and it scarred me... It was just to gut wrenching, I was almost writhing in the thoughts, and it doesn't help that the way it finished. I'm almost shattered. My loss of collective thinking is almost depressing...

But, if anyone is out there for something truly shocking, gruesome and cringing at the end of you seat; than "School Days" is probably your one stop shop. It is genuinely one of THE most emotional churning anything that I have come across... And I don't get moved easily... Not this dramatically... Now I've got to do something to take this off my mind...

Just a note... Don't let my rant above scare you away from me... I just responded as soon as I finished... So I was neck deep with all the shock from the ending... I managed to take my mind off of it... Though you could say this is me just denying it... I don't quite think there is any other way to deal with something that scarring...
