School Days

Type: High School anime filled with jerks

Synopsis: This guy named Makoto loves this big boobed girl named Kotonoha, and uses his friend’s Sekai’s advice on how to court her. Then Sekai moves in on him once he becomes forbidden territory. Then a bunch of stuff happens, and they all kill each other.

Pros: Based on the fact that the animation style is very cutesy, the turn that this anime takes after the third episode really takes you by surprise. Scandalous is a good word for it. Its a very dark look at the harem genre. Because, when you really think about it, a situation in which a group of young women are all competing for the affection of a singular young man would probably not end well. Loyalties, resentment, emotions, and hormones would make it very complicated very fast. The show also manages to be sexy without showing much. Teenagers are having sex y’all. And to top it all off, the ending. Man…the ending.

Cons: The protagonist Makoto. Well, the entire cast really, but Makoto specifically. Dudes a horrible person. He only thinks of himself and never considers the consequences of his actions. In all honestly, this is probably how the average male would act if presented with a harem situation (a.k.a. sleeping with as many girls as he can), but still. Actually, each of the characters act out of self interest. This is a rare case where the story supports the cast, instead of the other way around. If your use to the more wholesome nature of harem animes (sex jokes and all), then this show will disturb you a little.

Watch it?: Mature themes. Viewer discretion is advised. (5/5)

MVP: The Ending

Dude.

Best Episode: Ep. 12 “School Days” (A horrible end for horrible people)
