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.

The basis for School Days if you haven't read/seen/played it, it's pretty much about the main leads. Makoto, Kotonoha, and Sekai. Makoto likes Kotonoha. the basis of the manga revolves around them. but, Sekai likes Makoto! the basis is really will Makoto end up with Kotonoha, or Sekai? I'm not going to spoil the ending, but the ending is dark. this is not your everyday shoujo.

i saw the anime first, and the art changes between the anime and the manga. the anime has ecchi-type animation to it. the manga however, the characters don't have this ecchiness to them, and i prefer the art read more

Okay, I'll try to be very straightforward. I went to this manga with zero expectations. And for the first ten chapters, I read a simple but likable romantic triangle. Not great in any aspect, but at least, enjoyable. But, in the last two chapters, what I read was a pathetic, and I really mean PATHETIC, try of the author to give readers a big mindfuck, by suddendly changing the thematic of the manga. And that was atrocious, ridiculous. Well, let's go to the main points:

If you are a big horror manga fan like me, prepare to be highly disappointed. The story isn't very smart nor is it interesting. The art is okay, it's your average anime style. The characters are so stereotypical it makes me want to cry. There's the boy that has no personality, his wacky best friend, and the shy moe-ish girl that the boy likes. Of course since it's a horror manga you know what's going to happen at the end. But was it violent, frightening, or disturbing? Maybe to some people who thought it was a shojo manga, but to the people who read read more

*Pre-Note: Any Ano Hana hurt fanboys are probably not too happy to see this review. It's alright. Rate it down even before reading this if it satisfies your anger. I personally feel a bit sorry for the cute and awesome characters from School Days since they'd suffer for a completely unrelated review, but other than that, I couldn't care less if you did.
To the people who were actually looking for the review, I apologize for this.

School Days, within the recent years, has become a symbol series for the sheer pleasure and entertainment of watching/reading violent love, described by a divine term called "YANDERE". read more
