Of course, not every single has to deliver one, but when there's nothing more to School Days than a poor time killer, it could at least teach us some wisdom, right? But the makers fail at it as well.
Besides - seriously - if I want to watch porn, I could just type some other stuff in my browser, right? No need to sneak in like that.
