School Days – 02

Opening Sequence:

OP: “Innocent Blue” by DeviceHigh

Impressions

When I played the game, I hated Makoto at the start because of the things he did, and for sure, I still hate him now. Just the way he did things on his date with Kotonoha like looking at a swimsuit magazine, or playing a game suited for him, to not even trying to defend her made me fill with rage. The worst was his approach of trying to get a kiss out of Kotonoha. But luckily Kotonoha gave him the slapping that he deserved.

Although Makoto tried to redeem himself by apologizing to Kotonoha, he wouldn’t have done so without Sekai’s help. So really Makoto is a helpless protagonist, and it’s what I hate the most about him. Although in the game he does change a bit but not very much from what I recall. So I do hope we’ll see some backbone from Makoto in the future. Kotonoha on the other hand has shown development as she has taken the first step and does want to continue on with her relationship with Makoto. So yeah, at this point I’m still rooting for Kotonoha.

What I really do wonder is how far is School Days going to go, in terms of adult content. Just seeing the OP sequence w’re seeing revealing shots of the girls, not to mention some fanservice of Kotonoha in the bath. But anyway I hope we’ll start seeing a development in the love triangle as we can see that Sekai has feelings for Makoto. Though not only that, we’re also introduced to another girl, Kato Otome, and with her, it might even turn out to be a love square.

This week’s ending theme is “Ai no kakera” by Hashimoto Miyuki, which I found to be a very pleasant tune. The ED sequence is exactly the same as last week’s with the exception of a photo of Otome in it now. I’m assuming that each week will be a different ending theme and as more characters are introduced, we’ll see them added to the photo collection. If they have a different ending theme for each week that’ll be awesome as the game had different ending themes depending on the ending you got. I look forward to the next episode.

I believe everyone hates Makoto the idiot. His character’s personality is not something you enjoy watching. If he changed and acts more normal, maybe talk to Kotonoha more and find out more about her, he might be a character I will like. He really deserved that slap in the movie theater, though the movie was a bit ero and probably wasn’t the best time to get a kiss. He probably could have done better in the horror movie, might have gotten a “hold me I’m scared hug” lol.

I actually liked Itou in the game, unlike in the anime, he at least wasn’t as blatently perverted in a stupid way. On quite a few paths he actually has alotta backbone and looks cool defending Kotonoha, Sekai or Setsuna.

He was even better in Summer Days which is an au prequel which focuses on Setsuna’s past and why the girls all like him.

The anime version on the other hand… completely hate this Itou, he has no respect at all for the girls it seems unlike in the game.
