And there are alot like him. Or at least when I was in highschool there was. I think no couple in my highschool ever lasted more than 2 weeks, and most of the time they were broken because the guys AND girls cheated.

i have no problem with cheating. you can be cool and superior when 'cheating,' but that requires one being a higher order lifeform.

But the point I was making was they acted just like Makato is(Early highschool, by their last years they were pros....lol). They didn't know what to do, they didn't try to make their partners happy, they just wanted to fullfill their own desires.

Exactly, i'm sure everyone who's been through highschool would see alot of relationships which end because one of the them was cheating.... Personally i feel relationships developed between teenagers usually never last or develop further, such as marriage. That is because teenagers are at a age where they are exploring relationships and commitment and they are just that experiments.

I find it funny that things like what makoto is doing, happens throughout most highschools and yet i'm sure there isn't alot of you who would go up to the perpetraitor and call them an ass. It's only when people decide to represent these actions on tv that people actually care, when in fact situations like school days are appearing at a regular basis throughout the world.

Bow down to the power of media, that which can turn apathy into sympathy.

I've tried to pull Makoto's kind of crap in highschool before too, so I can understand where he's coming from. At that age, sex is new, and there's pressure to do it for no other reason than to have done it. But the girls in my situation were friends and didn't let me get away with it, so I ended up with nothing. This is why I can understand Makoto's actions at that age, but I'm annoyed with how much Sekai and Kotonoha are willing to let Makoto get away with... maybe it's because they aren't that close to begin with...

Well... I think if my friends were involved I would step in and say something.... but if it was just some guy or girl, I'm not going to step in just because they're from the same school. I wouldn't say it's exactly apathy, but more "I don't really know the situation, I don't want to stick my nose where it doesn't belong"... If they asked, then I would certainly help...

This show is a surprisingly insightful and cautionary look at high school romance, if you ask me - albeit a bit exaggerated. It has already gone beyond the "typical high school romance" show and set itself apart from other shows in the genre.

In my mind this show provides a perfect example of a high school romance gone wrong... as much as To Heart is an example of a high school romance done right. Let's see how how far the show degenerates; it could prove to be a tragedy of Wagnerian proportions.

Conclave is doing a pretty good job. Although what in the world is "Devil's Lair"? They just 'supposedly' released episode 4, and have no irc or website... seems like a fake / trap.

you make it sound like cheating on your partner is an acceptable thing when you are older...

makato may be acting like what teenage boys his age would do but i generally call those types of people "scum" anyway...well as long as i myself isnt like that i guess i have no right in pokeing my nose into other people's "unprivate" lives

~~ in any case what makoto doing is wrong and shouldnt be looked at as an example on how to start your own relationship (however tempting it maye be to grap your partner's chest on the 3rd day of going out)

lol deathkillz has a point, you make it sound like there are two types of cheating, good cheating and bad cheating, while classifying makoto as a bad cheater?

As for makoto, i feel we shouldn't judge his character just yet.. I'm giving him a few more eps.... From the looks of things so far he hasn't done anything too despicable, apart from being a teenager.

Also from the looks of ep 4..

Spoiler for ep4:

You forget that this anime airs at like 2.30am in the morning. It's not like kids are watching it so they can get away with a lot of things I think.

The thing I'd like to know is what the Japanese censor laws are like. Like for example in the UK the present laws are anything goes after 9pm except full on detailed shots of any activity at the "business end" of things.

I know in Japan they have the obvious rule about pixellating the business end of things and H-Games are not allowed to be sold for consoles. So where does School Days stand in that respect? How far will they go?

Another thought is if they DO go that far would it be appropriate considering we get 13/14 year olds downloading stuff from AnimeSuki to put a warning on Schooldays to avoid any issues?

I don't think cheating is the right thing to do, you should probably break off with your current girlfriend or wife and then go for the other girl

That sounds good in the beginning as long you dont get spoiled by the other girls but if they ever find out you cheated on them, some will dumped you and some will try to kill you.

Well to have plenty of girls you have to be smart, otherwise you're done for, of course. Having three-four girls is possible, more is quite a problem!

Death...let me let you in on a little secret. Alot of guys are pigs who want as many as they can. As you have seen, several have shown they have no problem with cheating.


ipernorris

One of his girlfriends. He couldn't have chosen a more psychotic woman to cheat on. She is in prison for twelve more years at the moment.
