So wait, what exactly is the deal with the family relations WRT Makoto's father and Sekai and Setsuna?

I didn't know School Days was part of a line of games before it. Were the same characters present and do those relationships carry over to School Days and its sequels now too?

(In the games at least. The SD anime seems to have ignored any incest and just focused on it's own story)

I'm asking because I just saw this mentioned on the TVTropes page for School Days (look under "Luke I Am Your Father") and it wasn't really explained and I couldn't find much more information on the subject...

Nobody's sure?
Also I heard there was like a whole line of games before School Days, in addition to the ones after it (Summer Days and Cross Days). How are they interrelated?

Actually that's only a relationship chart. There wasn't a single eroge about Makoto's father and his "harem". If there were the chart itself wouldn't have created such a big shock to many of the fans.

Not to troll this thread but I just puzzled why this stupid show deserved a sub-forum in this place.

Yes people loves it shock values but "shocking" is not a ticket for that honor. School Days is an anime which loved for a stupid reason.

In very few words: it garnered the honor of having a sub-forum because of the amount of posts. 'Nuff said.

Honestly, it was something that is not rewatchable, mainly because Makoto was is a douche. Give it a year or two and it will be among those forgettable... or worse... forgotten anime.

This is a 2007 anime, dude. Already almost three years old, and people are still talking about it.

Like Beto said, School Days is pretty dated already. Actually, this anime is unforgettable because of the same exact reasons you hate it for.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Love it or hate it, this show isn't really something to simply watch and discard. It bears some sort of reaction, I think...

im actually interested in the reason why the director chose that specific ending to the anime when there were so many others in the game.

unless it was just for the shock value and they needed something to catch people off guard, ie the romance part that sucked a lot of people in

Shock value? You said it. I felt like my mind was raped by the staff when I saw the ending. And that's just one screenshot. It felt like it was implanted in my brain and can't unsee it. D:

I hated School Days because of their approach to the denoument, but I think many people just ROFL on the same part. The tough ones... >_>

Well, the bad end was also a logical end considering that the entire anime was meant to portray a progressive downward slide, with each episode just a bit worse than the last (Even during the early parts before the show really changes tone during episode three's closing moments).

while the ending (though tasteless and abrupt) and makoto's awful character make the series memorable, the lack of a plot development and character development made this show pretty mediocre in the end.

while the downward slide was apparent, it was poorly executed. my detachment towards most of the characters made it difficult to get into the story.

No plot and character development? The characters were the same at the beginning and ending? I mean, really?

ok ok there was a plot, but it was just way over the top for my enjoyment. yeah the characters definitely changed between the beginning and end of the series, but the changes themselves were not developed properly. many of the characters' actions were pretty unfounded and even unrealistic at times.

Well, your beef with Makoto's preposterous actions could be leveled up towards a very large portion of humanity, both male and female. Cheating and reveling in it are not really some unheard of things.

And yes, you probably are confusing plot development with your own personal dislike of the characters and the setting in wich they are involved. But that's ok. You don't really have to like every show you watch.

thanks for being agreeable. it could just be that i haven't been in contact with people who would do such a thing. i'm thankful that i don't know any people that are as unscrupulous as makoto.

i know i didn't really like the characters, but how do you feel about them?

I found most of the characters refreshing (yes, even Makoto - I loved "hating" him), in a genre not really known for being so "frank". I mean, really, most adversarial conflicts in romantic comedy-type animes are really not overtly bad. Simply... misunderstood or not beyond salvation. This anime showed a side of the relationships not really seen all that much in this kind of series. I liked it for that, I guess.

And, yes, you can count yourself lucky for not knowing people like that. I, for one, cannot.
