I read about it, then read the TV Trope page - so, haven't watched it .. .. yet. But considering what I read, I'd probably have a sleepless night. Like that time where I just read
about everything in Neon Genesis Evangelion and was awake until at least 4 AM and barely moved cause I thought the shadows were holding the creepy Rei pics .. and that disgusting decaying corpse of Asuka's ..
Anyway, however gruesome this thing ends, I have to say .. I find it hilarious
that the final episode was first not shown due to the news of a schoolgirl killing her (step?)father with an axe - and they instead showed beautiful scenery during that time. And how the remakes (?) made use of it and have NICE BOAT listed everywhere ..
Have you guys seen the uncut version of SD? I'm tramatized by the sounds that can be heard while Katsura is sawing through Sekai's stomach.
Saw!? I thought she used the axe to do that! Or just a knife .. Although I read that, while the TV Series had the from-inside shot only black surroundings, the OVA made it up realistically where you could see the texture and inside of the organs ..
It's creepy that I find that good. Even if I'm a scaredy cat for it.
I actually finished reading the manga yesterday - ended up having a weird dream with elements of it in it. Note to self: Do not read funny recaps of Wind Waker while also reading School Days. Seriously .. don't.
The manga was kinda fun. I mean, I knew the anime's ending and when I saw only 12 chapters of the manga, I was wondering, like .. chapter 10 is the school festival. And I was wondering if the manga really was finished.
Yeah. It ended alright. Heehee. They ended it quite differently, but also suddenly instead of the anime that dragged out Kotonoha's and Sekai's descent into madness .. on both or either parts. Not sure.
But I read about Cross Days, and I was severely confused. Makoto is now a depraved Bisexual who goes for alter ego of a crossdresser and he has sex with the alter ego (who is still a guy) and men gang-raping another man .. and .. something about NICE TRAIN and how the only "true/real" ending is now Makoto feeling bad about f*cking around so much and ends up in a happy relationship with a male crossdresser?
Yeah, severely confusing ..
I still want to play/read the actual Visual Novel and I heard that an english translation of School Days came out (or was supposed to come out) in 2011. Anyone know about that? Cause I wanna see everyone, since the manga was rather confusing with these people showing up where I only knew 3 of them. Although, they are the important ones.
In terms of the anime's super violent ending .. well, call me harsh but I think Makoto deserves what he got. If you f*ck around that much and be a jerk, you WILL end up like that. Not particularely with that piece on the NICE BOAT, but .. it's a possibility.
But I read that the anime was supposed to be a total deconstruction and horror version of Harem Series that always work out fine. (Although that game ending of GETTING an actual Harem with Kotonoha and Sekai, both of their presents telling Makoto that they're pregnant from him .. basically repeating what his father did .. sorta .. well, it gives me headaches)
