Wow, just wow. I watched that episode with my mouth gaping open at the shock.

I had hoped for a happy ending, but after knowing the reason behind the postponement, I had to revise what I wanted for the ending. My prediction that Sekai would kill Makoto did come true after all, but I really didn't expect it to happen that. In fact, for a moment in the episode, I thought that wouldn't even happen after Makoto starting realizing that everything went wrong because of his selfish desires. The problem is that he went back to Kotonoha, which doesn't make much sense because before he said that being with Kotonoha is tiring and she doesn't relate to him as well as Sekai does.

Squirting ink instead of blood definitely looked weird though. Overall, I gave this series an 8, but the ending really went downhill. I think the appeal of this series was that it was so controversial and shocking. Each week, you'd never see what was going to happen and the producers always surprised me. I'd go through each week wondering what the hell would happen on School Days. I, for one, am looking forward to the special DVD endings. Hopefully, they'll be more satisfying. I'd rather have Makoto learn a lesson than see him die with no regrets. In fact, the game ending where Sekai kills Makoto is much more satisfying because Makoto actually gets a chance to talk.

Strange...
Yes, a new year has begun. I assume the anime makers decided to give Kazuha, Futaba, Karen, and Ai (once again) a cameo appearance.

It seems that Makoto had such a bad reputation that his death didn't make people grieve too long. As for Sekai... Well, there was no more time to add stuff, I guess.

My thoughts on the episode-

For a finale, ignoring how twisted this show was compared to the game, was great. Disturbing and frightening, but amazing.

It was put together really well at the end, including the long E-mail with "Sayonara" at the end. At this point, I was hoping for them to play one of my favorite School Days game songs, "Kanashimi no Mukou". And they did! Boy, I rejoiced. Then they ended with the School Days game opening!

*clap* *clap*

Bravo!

A sad end where none of the main characters are alive (Kotonoha is a bit too insane to be considered "alive...), but still very exciting.

I shall wait for a overall thought thread.

I, Neki Ecko approves of this thread.

I have to tell you that I am satisfy with this ending except the Nice Boat with Makoto's head on it but he knows that you dont played with other people emotions, but I DONT felt bad for Sekai, I know that she tried to be a matchmaker at first, then her emotions got to her but as I look at it, it was a scene that made this series worthwhile and it isnt the end of Makoto life but it was that dream sequence with Sekai and all of those masked folks, they say none of this would happen if you didnt sit right beside him and trying to hook him up with Koto, and I believe that is moment that Sekai snapped and the rest is history, but next year AGP/SaiMOE is going to be very good. Speaking of that

*Off-topic* Do AS has something like AGP, SaiMOE, or SaiGAR around here, I know that we have alot of people and we can have our own tournment around here. But if we do have something like that already, just disgard this bottom part.

I just read some comments in a Chinese forum:

According to "2ch", there was a school days preview about two weeks ago which was more violent and bloody, especially the scene when Kotonoha killed Sekai. During the preview about three people vomited. (Since there was a preview I guess that is why some people was joking about "nice boat" )

If that is true, I can't wait until DVD version is out

It's actually very typical of harem anime, one moment the guy is with one girl, the next moment suddenly he goes to another

Does anyone think Kotonoha died too? She wasn't at school in the end. She could have just stayed on the boat forever to be with Makoto.

Given that it seems she'll probably never return to shore....... yeah, she'll probably die in the end.

After watching the subbed version it seems like they're trying to say that it's all Sekai's fault for driving Makoto to love her, and made up stuff to keep Makoto, that she deserved to die for killing an innocent victim of her doings. Bull****. Though we never had a test, I'm pretty sure Sekai's hormones didn't react to get her pregnant to try to keep Makoto. Another thing, WHERE ARE THE PARENTS?! I'm amazed Makoto's mom was never around, and what did Sekai's mom do when she went missing? If what is said about it skipping to the next semester is true, Kotohana must have been captured, and a little petal was placed on the cell phone as a memento, at the same time, it's like they were thinking, "It's sad, but it was bound to happen." Which is pretty much right.

Nope, but I think we were brainstorming about doing an international moe tournament or something, but the logistics is a bit difficult. It's all in the Anime Saimoe Tournament thread under General Anime.

Kotonoha sailing out alone is just a suicidal last sail. The result of 3 bad endings all comes together.

Yippee! I though it was a great ending. Perfect capper to the series. I woulda liked to see the un-edited murder scenes just to see how gruesome they really were, but I'll take what I got for now. I thought this ending was great. And for a moment I thought that Kotohona was gonna kiss the Makoto head on the Nice Boat. Now THAT woulda been something! Making out with a severed head.....HAHAHA.

And I think that Kotohona died eventually too. She looked all worn out and haggard like she'd been there for a while, and no one else was out on the boat with her. (besides shorty Makoto) She's already crazy, so something like sailing the boat didn't look like it was top priority anymore...

That's stretching things a bit. I mean, you think Kotohana is captured because things are back to normal?

Also, putting a little petal next to a cell phone as a "memorial" is the craziest thing I've ever heard -_-

wow...... having watched this show without playing the game, I guess I don't share the same sick pleasure at watching the main characters get killed off or driven insane. I know that everyone said that it would happen, and after the delay it was apparent, but after that ending everything of redeeming value and decency in School Days was gone for me. Hopefully the DVDs have alternate endings of some sort...

Nope, it just confirms that Sekai deserves to get butchered as much as Makoto. noone's innocent in SD

Well something happened to her, she's not at school. We don't know exactly how the cell phone got there, but I doubt a whole new semester has started with no one knowing at least something happened to those 3.

Sekai died on the rooftop with a lot of blood and her corpse has been found or not?

Makoto's one certainly but we know nothing about it.
So who could have picked the cellphone of Makoto and put it on the rooftop if it's not Katsura (It's somebody who knows were they were having lunch).

2 possibilities:
  1. In the one hand, Kotonoha has put it on the rooftop after having washed the blood of Sekai, and then it stays like it until the next school years.
  2. On the other hand, Kotonoha is dead and somebody else would have found the cellphone in the nice boat with the head of Makoto.

Considering Kotonoha has no friends, it just can be the 1st one (It's somebody who knows were they were having lunch).

So in my opinion, Kotonoha is still alive.
