Every day when he rides the train to school, Makoto Itou can't help but notice the beautiful Kotonoha Katsura, but he is too shy to talk to her. There are rumors of a charm at his school in which you take a picture of your crush, set it as your phone background, and if no one sees it for three weeks, your love will be realized. So Makoto takes a picture of the raven-haired beauty, and he continues to admire her from afar.

However, when Sekai Saionji—the girl who sits next to him in class—sees the picture, she realizes he has a crush on Kotonoha, and she decides to help him with his romantic troubles. Eventually, Kotonoha and Makoto start dating thanks to Sekai, and he wonders how he will ever repay her for her kindness. But, to his shock, Sekai takes her payment in a startling form: a kiss.

School Days follows the complicated romantic entanglements of these three high school students, and the consequences that await them as a result of their poor decisions.

While anime was more focused on triangle love between Makoto, Sekai and Kotonoha, manga version did add some variety to it. Manga has decided to do something different that would actually please the audience: Give Makoto an actual character development. Unlike an anime version, we can see that he's not only focused on sexual relationship with every girl he encounters but is aware of his weaknesess. That thing said, I beleve it to be better than any other adaptations of the series. The story hasn't changed that much, but the author had to make it cramped a bit. It'll make you glued to those pages.

Mixed Feelings
This manga shines light on the complexities and the darkness of love, especially Young Love. Sekai Saionji (I was all for calling her Best Girl in the series at first) is a crazed and manipulative girl who literally took advantage of her friends budding romance and destroyed it with jealous callousness. It was slightly better than the anime adaptation where Makoto Itou's more of an admirable character yet dense while wrestling with his intimate feelings. Had the anime stuck more true to the manga with good elements from the Visual Novel, it could have been better. I am not opposed to tragedies, yet the ending ...

Ok...? I heard about school days for years and years but I refused to play that game or even watch the entire anime, then I found out about a short manga with only 12 chapters, so, why not?

A few spoilers here, if you really care, dealing about school days

Ok! Then I read and that's WHY NOT. School Days is a poorly written manga, with a stupid and boring plot that could make your dog want to kill itself if it knew how to read.

The thing is: There's a generic male character 1 that I didn't even get to memorize the name, he's not interesting, ...
