Summary:

Makoto is resting his head on Sekai’s lap one day on the rooftop when she comments on how Kotonoha didn’t come again. He suggests that it’s because she’s busy with her committee work, but Sekai still isn’t comfortable with how they’ve purposefully shifted their morning schedules. Reassuring her that it’s okay and pulling her down for a kiss, Makoto is unaware that Kotonoha is actually watching them from the stairwell. He then comments on how it’s getting cold, and Sekai wonders if their time eating on the rooftop is over. Later that night, Kotonoha is in her room working on knitting and asking herself why Makoto was doing those things with Sekai. She’s not sure if Makoto doesn’t like her and thinks that she has to work harder, but her thoughts are interrupted when Kokoro comes by her room to ask about the school festival because she wants to go and see Makoto.

The following day in class 1-3, Setsuna is showing the costume she got for their festival activity when Hikari runs in with news about the other classes doing a little sister teahouse and a zombie teahouse. Setsuna has her own plan, but Taisuke then barges in with more bad news: Tanaka – the other representative for the class – has been injured and needs two weeks to recover. Since this leaves Setsuna by herself, Hikari suggests that Makoto replace Tanaka. Makoto isn’t entirely willing, so Setsuna wonders if Makoto is worried about Kotonoha being there. This makes Hikari ask if he is having a fight with her, and to clear things up, Setsuna then announces – to everyone’s surprise – that Makoto and Kotonoha have broken up. What’s more, she also reveals that he is now going out with Sekai. This news gets passed along to Otome via Nanami, who suggests that Kotonoha had indeed been one-sidedly involved with Makoto.

Later that day, Kotonoha is happy to see Makoto present during the committee meeting with all the representatives, and she tries to speak with him afterwards. She feels that with him being there, they can now be together after school since they haven’t been able to get together in recent mornings, and she asks him if he as any free time as Setsuna tries to drag him away. Setsuna immediately answers No for him and reminds Makoto that he has to meet Sekai, but Kotonoha doesn’t give up and promises to text message him. True to her word, Kotonoha sends him a message a few minutes later saying that she wants to eat lunch with him tomorrow on the rooftop. Realizing who it’s from, Setsuna thinks that Makoto should block messages from Kotonoha and takes his cell phone to enable the feature. When Makoto objects, Setsuna tells him that it’s for Sekai’s sake.

At the Katsura house that night, Kotonoha realizes that she made a mistake in her knitting and starts to pull it apart. However, she doesn’t stop and keeps pulling until there’s a huge pile of yarn on her bed. The next morning, she tries to text message Makoto, but she finds that she can’t send it. She isn’t able to get through by calling him either. Makoto, of course, still has her blocked, though he continues staring at his phone thinking about it. During gym class, Sekai notices Kotonoha sitting alone to the side, but Setsuna doesn’t think that Sekai should be worrying. Kotonoha then waits for Makoto on the rooftop during lunchtime, but he never shows up, and it soon starts raining. Meanwhile, the classes continue their preparations for the school festival, and Otome and friends bully Kotonoha to get them some sheets.

Kotonoha is on her way to the storeroom when she runs into Makoto and Setsuna, and this time, Makoto wants to talk with her, particularly since he can see through her wet shirt. He offers to help her, but noticing Setsuna trying to pull Makoto away, Kotonoha walks off by herself. Makoto then questions if Setsuna has a grudge against Kotonoha, and although Setsuna doesn’t, she reaffirms that Makoto is now Sekai’s boyfriend. Unable to leave Kotonoha alone, Makoto ignores Setsuna and chases Kotonoha, but he sees her talking with Taisuke down the hall. He then follows them to the storeroom and tries to spy on them, but he’s discovered by Hikari and Nanami who are passing by. When Hikari notices Taisuke is inside, she starts eavesdropping too and hears him invite Kotonoha to dance at the end of the festival.

It seems that Taisuke had heard that couples who dance together at that time will stay together, and he goes on to reveal how he’s liked Kotonoha since they all went to the pool and how he heard that they were broken up now. Taisuke thinks that this is his chance, but to his surprise, Kotonoha declares that she and Makoto haven’t broken up. In fact, she questions why he’d say this, and before he can answer, she excuses herself and runs out. Since Makoto is right outside, Kotonoha immediately runs into him and is glad to see him. However, she doesn’t get to say anything because Nanami steps in between them and accuses Kotonoha of making an advance at Taisuke, causing Kotonoha to cry and run off in tears. Although Makoto doesn’t chase after her, he does later turn off the blocking feature on his cell phone.

At Makoto’s apartment later, Sekai reveals how she had heard from Setsuna that he went after Kotonoha earlier. Sekai isn’t too happy about this, and as Makoto is protesting that Setsuna was being mean to Kotonoha, the doorbell rings. When Makoto answers it, he finds Kotonoha standing there wanting to talk with him. As she hears Makoto apologize for his cell phone from the other room, Sekai recalls how Setsuna had told her about the blocking she enabled. After showing Kotonoha that she can now contact him again by cell phone, Makoto suddenly tells Kotonoha that he’s not feeling well. Kotonoha is about to leave, but she then notices the extra pair of shoes that are at Makoto’s doorstep and realizes what’s going on. Before leaving, she decides to ask Makoto to dance with her at the end of the festival and reveals how Taisuke had thought they were broken up.

Hearing Kotonoha talk about being Makoto’s girlfriend brings tears to Sekai’s eyes, and after Kotonoha leaves, Sekai announces that she’s going home. Makoto tries to stop her because she might run into Kotonoha if she heads out so soon after, but Sekai leaves anyway. With tears still in her eyes, Sekai runs out of the building only to find Kotonoha standing on the sidewalk. Saying that Sekai’s been unfair, Kotonoha raises her arm and slaps her.

 
 
 

This episode was just oozing with drama once again – the screencaps don’t quite do it any justice. Regardless of whether I like the characters or not, I think this series is working towards being a masterpiece by how well it presents the story and how exciting it is to watch. One moment, I’m thinking that Kotonoha is going to go into SEED-mode and the next minute I’m thinking that Sekai will one about to crack. And the entire time, it was clear that Makoto’s relationship with both girls was fragile, so it kept me guessing on which way he was going to lean and wondering what the consequences are of everything he does. I may not be a big fan of Makoto, but his actions sure keep the story interesting, and I keep wanting to see more.

As for the characters, I thought that Setsuna was right to realize that Makoto needed to be kept in line for Sekai’s sake, but it seemed rather futile of her to try to keep him from talking with Kotonoha, and it even might have led to him wanting to talk to her even more. Kotonoha, on the other hand, I find a bit strange because she’ll stand up and declare that Makoto is her boyfriend to the likes of Otome and Taisuke, yet she doesn’t do anything about him cheating on her, even though she’s seen it with her own eyes at least twice now. I guess you could say that that slap at the end is her way of telling Sekai to keep her hands off him, but Makoto himself still doesn’t know that she found out. It’ll be interesting to see which girl fights for Makoto more as the school festival arrives next episode and the dance draws closer.

  1. You’re right Onmi; those screenshots don’t make justice for the importance this episode holds. I’m surprised Kotonoha didn’t make a move on the rooftop (maybe a hint for future confrontation), instead is trying her best to approach Makoto. The thing that troubles me the most was her destroying her knit (the work she has so far).

    Indeed Kotonoha is still Makoto’s girlfriend; she has all the right to ask him to dance with her on the festival. Sekai doesn’t have the right to get mad, when she know all well that cheating on her was wrong.

    I beginning to support Darklord’s theory; and eventually Kotonoha will loss her mind.

  2. My mistake then, sorry.

    Then Sekai have well deserved it; she knew how wrong the things were because their hiding everything to Kotonoha. And now it seems Kotonoha is ready to make another stand, maybe the last one, for Makoto.

    I’ll say more when Onmi does the summary

  3. Sekai’s being stupid, but she knows she’s done wrong at least; once she has the courage to be over with it, it’s fine, since she’s a nice girl at heart. C’mon girls, get over Makoto and tell him to gtfo, he’s not worth your time, and he deserves to end up alone and hopefully with his reputation stained.

    Ale
  4. OMFG… this ep will be the best.

    And L´m thinking if we will see some dialog with sekai and kotonoha about what kotonoha saw on the toproof or something.

    Can wait to see this ep.

  5. I guess Kotonoha saw Sekai’s shoes on the aparment, and that’s why she reaffirms her relationship with Makoto.

    And Setsuna is doing wrong too. Telling them that he and Kotonoha break up and now that he was Sekai’s boyfriend; come on girl, mind your own business.

    This’s getting good.

  6. It’s funny how the girls around Makoto are doing more shitty things, yet everyone still wnats to hate on a guy who’s just going with what he thinks is best. He likes Sekai more, so he’s going with her. He’s a bit of an ass for not breaking up with Kotonoha yet/before. But that sorta things happens, and he never got anywhere with Kotonoha to start off with. A few kissess does not a relationship make, but oh well. This place seems to be full of Kotonoha fans, anything I say is probably pointless.

    GP
  7. Nooope. He’s not a bit of an ass, he’s a big ass for cheating when it isn’t justified. It happens? Well, people die everyday too, it doesn’t suck any less. There’s a lot of cheaters, doesn’t mean they’re not all assholes.

    Officially they were a couple. If he didn’t click in with Kotonoha he should’ve ended it and made things clear with her, but what can you expect from someone who is sudh a dumbass?

    In any case, Sekai’s a traitor, as I said, but Kotonoha’s an idiot for going after her first and not Makoto. I dunno how she can be so forgiving with him, but then again this is the harem genre, where the girls will cream themselves over the main character, more often than not a loser, no matter how bad she is.

    Ale
  8. Some people are taking the hype of “the worst male protagonist” moniker a bit too seriously. I’ve seen other male protagonists do worse than what Makoto is doing right now…

    But hey, perhaps I should be resigned to the fact that 99% of the posts would be filled with “Die Makoto” even if he has, say, 5 minutes of screen time, hehe… It’s easier to jump into the hype bandwagon, after all…

    p.s. Yeah, this show is fast shaping up to be a sleeper hit for sure…

    All I can say is…ABOUT DAMN TIME!

    Someone needed to teach this traitorous bitch a lesson, but I hope this slap is just the beginning, since she needs to suffer much much more for being an untrue friend and a slut to top it off.

    As for Makoto, I’m starting to think that death is just too good for him. I mean, it’s relatively painless compared to what he deserves. He needs to suffer! If he does die, he needs to go to Hell(adulterers go to the third circle, betrayers – to the ninth).

  10. At least the best romantic series… in anything else I don’t know…

    I think Kotonoha were on denail at the beginning… but slowly starts to the real narute of Makoto. Now she’s trying to see if Makoto really wants something with her.

    I remember that scene from the game; teh slap scene.-

  11. I’m amazed, you have those who hate the fact that male leads never make a move on any of the females of their harem….yet you have those that hate it when they do actually get some action. I understand that the way Makoto came about it was “silly” (Honestly a lot of people do it) But it’s way more interesting then having him realize his feelings towards the end and go running after Sekai and making it all mushy like every other show. Only to have him realize that his feelings have no ground cause he’s only just a hormonal teenager.

    Bring on the complications! it makes it much more fun. And I have to say Kotonoha was always my least favorite anyways =P

    Sure, he’s a different kind of idiot, but he’s one, regardless. We do get the odd Yuuichi who is actually a pretty cool guy, or Yukito from Air, or Rin from Shuffle who is decent. Harem leads in non bishoujo game based animes are often better, too.

    But Makoto’s just yet another dumbass.

  13. Yeah Setsuna is def. in the wrong here. It’s not her business. She shouldn’t say to block Kotonoha from contact either. Kotonoha’s still Makoto’s girlfriend and he still hasn’t at the time broke up with her, or looking like he wants to either. So dramatic. I don’t know why I watch this, but I can’t look away. Sekai deserves the slap for sure also. Makoto though….. no words. He has had MORE then enough chances to end it for good and not cause all this pain to everyone involved.

    best romantic series? No way. School Days is the best trainwreck of the season. There is nothing romantic about this show.

    ann
  14. I hate how it seems that, even though sekai/makoto are obviously in the wrong… but they got their people to back them up (even though the way setsuna is going about this issue is obviously not helping), while Kotonoha, with her introverted personality, has nobody. She’s doing this all alone. I’m proud of her.

  15. “Officially they were a couple.”

    They MARRIED???

    Oh wait … they did not and only marriage is “official”, granted that the situation should be made clear but everyone is guilty of avoiding that (except Setsuna).

  16. School Days is the best trainwreck of the season. There is nothing romantic about this show.

    Some people like trainwrecks, you know. I think they were actually quite common back in the day.

    Look at it this way. Sites like Youtube, which allow people to make fools of themselves internationally, have become very popular in recent times. And it’s nothing new, either… who remembers “America’s Funniest Home Videos”?

    But Makoto’s just yet another dumbass.

    Frankly, I think that’s the most realistic thing you can do in an anime. Like it or not, the world is full of “dumbasses”. It’s a pity, really, but it’s also kind of inevitable. I’ve done many things in my life that would be sufficient to have me qualify as a “dumbass”, and if you haven’t yet, one day you will. For sure.

    Besides, “dumbass” is relative. I would like to presume that there are very few dumbasses, let alone people, who are more stupid than, say, oh, I dunno, mold or something.

    cbhl
  17. Man, Kotonoha is pitiable indeed. Even though she did not deserve what happened to her, I wish she had more self-confidence to not let Makoto treat her like trash. I mean, she should have either dumped his sorry ass, or directly confronted him and Sekai about their relationship. How does she expect Makoto or anyone else for that matter to respect her if she just allows them to treat her like a toy? The fact that she’s trying to get Makoto back shows that she’s really desperate. Any self-respecting girl would have dumped him. I used to feel sorry for her, but now I just pity her.

    The slap in the face was nice though, definitely a step in the right direction. Only halfway there, though.

    Darklord
  18. I don’t hate Sekai, waht she do is wrong but when you fall in love you don’t control yourself sometimes and do wrong thing. She don’t do all of this with a bitch mind, she do all of this because she really love makoto and she probably don’t know what to do. I don’t hate her character because I know what it is to be in this kind of situation. Well…. I don’t want any of Sekai or Kotonoha to die ….but makoto is another story XD

    Gebgeb
  19. I don’t know why, but Setsuna is remaining me all the girls who supported Kirie along the series. She hasn’t even asked properly to Sekai if her and Makoto are a couple; even worse, she takes actions based on her own judgment in order to made Kotonoha’s life a misery (want it or not). Everyone now seems to hate Kotonoha, believe she was simple a girl chasing Makoto, making look Sekai as the good girl. So Sekai hasn’t the right to get mad about Kotonoha trying in her own way to take back what was her in the beginning. Damn it, Makoto doesn’t help at all by doing nothing.

    Snap out already Kotonoha. Leave that guy and don’t mind him. I guess she really loves him.

    Syaoran Li
  20. I feel like Setsuna has a Sekai complex; butt the freak out!! I’m not liking any of the characters now. I do agree Makoto’s actions keep the show going. I hope the ending is not gory like the game D:

    thegreencrayon
  21. I loathe this show. Because everyone is acting so stupidly, the show just seems contrived to me, emotionally effective as it is. In any case, I just don’t want to be anywhere near that awful jerk, Makoto. Personally, I like Sekai best, but god knows why.

  22. They MARRIED???

    Oh wait … they did not and only marriage is “official”, granted that the situation should be made clear but everyone is guilty of avoiding that (except Setsuna).

    To each other they were boyfriend/girlfriend. That’s what I meant by officially, I probably used the wrong word but I think just about everyone can tell I didn’t mean married, lol.

    Frankly, I think that’s the most realistic thing you can do in an anime. Like it or not, the world is full of “dumbasses”. It’s a pity, really, but it’s also kind of inevitable. I’ve done many things in my life that would be sufficient to have me qualify as a “dumbass”, and if you haven’t yet, one day you will. For sure.

    We all make mistakes, I don’t disagree. I also don’t think Makoto’s character is realistic, I know stupid people but I don’t know anyone that stupid.

    There’s a difference between having done stupid things and being stupid, and Makoto’s clearly the latter. Not only he makes mistakes, he’s completely oblivious about everything around him.

    Ale
  23. ahh well… quite dramatic.. but still abt love things… i can say this!! it’s a free for all grabs match!! if u can grab the girl you like, do it!!! if you can’t or missed it.. too bad!!! and for 2 timers like tat guy.. you sucked!! ther you have a lovely girl whos soo delicated to you and u than realised you like other girls!!!

  24. Man, Makoto really is the lowest of the low.

    Those of you who defended him, saying he was in love with Sekai, I think this episode clearly shows you are wrong. If he was really in love with her, he would have rejected Kotonoha’s offer to the dance and told her the truth and he would not stare at her boobs like that. This proves it, he does not love either of the girls, his driving force is his libido. He does not understand the difference between love and lust. Being in love means being ready to sacrifice everything for the person you love and putting your own well-being behind. Makoto on the other hand thinks only of himself.

    Also, being in love isn’t really an excuse for Sekai for doing stupid things. I know many people do stupid things when they are in love, but that does not make them any less stupid. She was fully conscious of what she did and how much it would hurt Kotonoha and she still went along. That slap was well-deserved and it is not enough.

    I agree with Omni that Makoto’s actions are the driving force of the show. However, I truly hate it that someone’s stupidity needs to make the show interesting. They could have made all the characters more human, i.e. having both good and bad qualities, instead of having just one character with no good qualities and witnessing the effect of his stupidity on the rest.

  25. I’m just glad this show isn’t like any of the other harem shows (maybe with the exception of KGNE) … one can’t really win with these types of shows… show the stereotypical harem male who’s a wuss and doesn’t even make a move on any of his potential love interests, and the show gets dissed. Show a harem male who, like Makoto, is human enough to follow his hormones and the show gets lambasted. It’s a one-sided battle, as series like Fruits Basket, Fushigi Yuugi and even Ouran never get castigated coz “it’s different if it’s a girl being surrounded by bishies” …

    But the reason I like this show is because it proves what Howard Stern once said: There are much more people who hated his show than those who love it – but the funny thing is that in the ratings, the ones who hated it are the ones who listen to it everyday, much more more often than the ones who loved it.

    And the fact that the last blog post about this show had more than 200 replies, almost rivaling the final episodes of Code Geass, shows how much of a hit this show has been, regardless of those who hated Makoto.

    I say the show is doing pretty well, and we’re not even in the bloody endings yet…

    – T

  26. Zlostur – who are you to define what “love” is? obviously by your definition, Makoto loves sex, so much hes willing to sacrifice everything (including his ‘friends’) for it. Welcome to the real world, where people really do act like that. “Lowest of the low”? Ha don’t make me laugh, at least he hasn’t raped anyone yet. IMO, Katsura would be lower than Makoto, she diddn’t give him what he wanted before, but now wants him back? Wou;ldn’t you also call that self-serving? Puh-leaze… All the characters in this show areidiots, and that’s what makes them human-like contrary to what you believe.

    And for everyone who does hate Makoto, why not blame the girls for a change for putting up with it? For crying out loud, they are just as stupid for stepping into such a sition when they could have just as easily avoided it.

    Just sit back and enjoy the show and hope they throw some half-H-scenes in here somewhere.

    What about the shows that have a male lead that isn’t either a jerk or mentally retarded? Namely Kanon, for example.

    Ale
  28. Julius,

    I think you misunderstood me on several levels. First of all, I enjoy the show, and indeed I hope they throw in some H-scenes, though it’s probably not going to happen.

    I never defined what love is in my post. I simply said that what Makoto feels towards Sekai clearly is not love. I don’t think you can argue with that. You say he loves sex? I completely agree, no argument here. Who doesn’t after all:) I know there are people in the real world who act like him, but as many people have said before me, that does not make them any less bad. You say he did not rape anyone yet. BOO HOO, how commendable, let’s give him a medal or something. Give him time, he might as well do that, though even if he doesn’t, that does not make his other flaws any less bad, does it? In the real world he might not be “the lowest of the low”, but in this show(and in all harem shows I daresay) he is.

    I never said the girls are not to blame. I’ve said it many times before, all three main characters are really messed up. However, whereas Sekai and Kotonoha clearly have some redeemable qualities, which make them realistic, Makoto is a complete dumbass. I do not think he is realistic at all. I mean, let’s face it, that guy has nothing going for him, no good qualities what-so-ever. No real world man can be that pathetic, clueless and that much of a bastard. Everyone has some goodness in him.

    Tolitz:

    Just because we hate Makoto, does not mean we hate the show. This show is an emotional roller coaster ride and as such is truly enjoyable. It’s fun to watch the characters mess up ever once in a while, and it’s even more fun to see them freak out and start bitch-slapping each other. Also, if the creators are brave enough to pull out one of the bloody endings convincingly, I think this show its on its way to immortality. I can’t wait, to see how it develops.

    Zlostur
  29. I forgot yet another thing…

    Of course the girls are also to blame. I also don’t think the characters are as human as you say, and I don’t agree with the “he’s 16” excuse either. If I was 16 I’d probably feel offended if people expected that little of me. Moreover, when I was 16, I didn’t act like that, and although there sure were a lot of idiots around they didn’t come near Makoto’s level.

    The girls? Sekai’s a traitor, even if she had no bad intent, Otome’s a malicious bitch, and Kotonoha disappointed me somewhat in this episode because she went after the lesser evil first. It’s alright to tell your friend to **** off if they cheated on you with your boyfriend, but go after the boyfriend first, girl.

    I think Setsuna, although being quite a busybody, is one of the better characters in there – sure she wasn’t being too nice this episode, but she was doing what she believed was the right thing with the information she had at her disposal.

    Ale
  30. @Ale:

    I don’t think Kotonoha chose the lesser of two evils, simply because she does not consider Makoto “evil”. She’d rather pretend that nothing happened and continue being Makoto’s girlfriend. Poor girl, she’s living in an illusion. That’s what made me lose respect for her this episode, after she rose a lot in my eyes over the last two.

    At this stage, I also do not like any of the characters.

    Setsuna should stop meddling into other people’s business. Even though I admire her loyalty to her friend, she is only making the situation worse.

    Kotonoha is a really pitiful, desperate girl, who has no self-respect and does not have the strength to confront her cheating boyfriend.

    Otome is an ill-natured bitch, who goes around followed by her army of skanks. I’d like to see her confront Kotonoha alone to see if she has the guts. But then again, seeing how Kotonoha came back to being a pushover, she might lose again.

    Sekai is a traitorous, backstabbing hypocrite. I do agree that being in love is no excuse for her. Also, she is either a slut, or she also has no self-respect either for sleeping with Makoto right after his confession. Make him work for it, damn it!

    Makoto is simply the ultimate jackass.

    Interestingly enough, I think the character I have highest hopes for is Taisuke. Apart from being a babbling nincompoop, he has not done anything to piss me off so far. He might prove to be a man and try to beat some sense into Makoto later in the series, though since he is a side character this is pretty unlikely.

  31. U guys which who are saying that Setsuna is meddling with other’s people’s business,well you guys kinda misunderstood her.The reason why she said that Katsura and makoto broke up is cause of the previous episode(6).The scene where makoto met Sekai at the hallway,and saying that he was tired cause he have not made breakfast for two people in a while,during that part,after he has entered the classroom,Setsuna asked Sekai if they were together that morning.Sekai’s reply was well a basically a shocked reaction.Setsuna then came to a conclusion that Sekai and Makoto were dating.She then confirmed it with Sekai by asking if Makoto broke up with Katsura and Sekai replied yes.
    So basically,in this episode,what Setsuna thought she was doing was to prevent the both of them getting back together(well in the 1st place they didn’t even broke up).Sooooo what I’m trying to say is : it is Sekai’s fault =D

  32. There are only two possible person that can or will probably become in the verge of insanity, and that would be either Sekai or Kotonoha, it is most likely that it is either one of them. Makoto who should feel the LEAST guilty about it, doesnt even give a dam, man he pisses me off. He doesnt know how to handle girls, bastard, since i have known some people who are players who goes out with many many girls but they never cheated on the girls they are dating and would break it off before they start dating other girls, that way there’s a closure no matter if it’s a good one or a bad one.

    In Makoto’s case he’s being an inconsiderate jerk that he still wants to date Kotonoha while cheating on her with Sekai, as if he loves the thrill or something, which would make him and he is a SCUM of society.

    Nagasumi
  33. It’s the guys fault not Sekai nor especialy not Kotonoha. First of all the bastard Makoto had a choice all along. Kotonoha being shy at first is common and is fine, there’s nothing wrong with that you cant hate her for it. Sekai on the other hand went a bit out of control by kissing and giving makoto some practice lessons, well i guess the justification in that is that she too loves him.

    Makoto though had a dam choice all along, if i was in his shoes which i am in the similar situation when i just started dating my girlfriend in highschool and my friend since elementary school said i needed practice on my kissing, although i never agreed in the first place she coerced me into doing so, much to my dam surprise, but i dont hate her for it, whether or not she had ill intentions of doing so i still considered her as my best friend. I never mentioned it to my girl of course, or else ill get killed lol, but even if i do, nothing happened after since i stuck by my girl of course, im not some man whore like Makoto who goes off with any girl who frikin kisses or seduces him, for example if nanami which i think is a tomboy frikin kisses him, he’ll probably go off with her.

  34. I agree with Zlostur… Makoto is def. not in love with Sekai, or Kotonoha… – I mean it’s pretty much a universal definition that love is more on affectionate feelings, and less on sex, more or less. I mean yeah people are going to say that sex is a form of love and affection etc – I mean give me a break – love is sex but not ONLY that. And julius – The real world isn’t like that – I mean yes, people cheat on each other – but I don’t believe they go about it so mindless like makoto – who is just a clueless dumbass IMO – you can’t just be like, people cheat, they want sex, therefore welcome to life. I don’t believe that really depicts what the ‘real world’ is really like – in fact it’s more like a stereotype than anything.

    And i’m sorry, must people have to be like idiots in order for them to be human-like? After all your talk about what the ‘real world’ is like, that is not really consistent.

  36. School Days has become a bit painful to watch, feels bad for both Sekai and Kotonoha, guess I just skip a few week of watching this and just wait for final episode to see the result. The story is good but too unrealistic, no girl will ever fall for an idiot like that and if a guy is a player there is no way he can be that damn stupid, just too unrealistic.

    Tom
  37. First off, you people should lay off Setsuna. Like BlEaChMaNiA said, last episode with Makoto’s breakfast for two comment and Sekai’s reaction afterwards, it was pretty obvious that Setsuna knew they were together and fooling around. Sekai told her that Makoto had broken up with Kotonoha. After that she reacted like I think a true friend should, she tried to prevent the ex-girlfriend from attempting to break up the new relationship. Had she not been lied to, I’m sure she would have acted differently, but you can’t blame her for any of this situation.

    And for those of you who feel sorry for Kotonoha and/or Sekai, I don’t feel bad for them in the least. Yes, Makoto is an idoit, but both of the girls are idoits too. Sekai got herself into this mess. She initiated the “special training,” Makoto go hooked and she let him continue knowing that he hadn’t broken up with Kotonoha whom she was supposedly “friends” with.

    Kotonoha, she caught them together at the end of last episode, the beginning of this one, and then found that Makoto was hiding Sekai from her in his place. What did she do? Nothing. Well, she did slap Sekai, but I have a feeling that this is going to lead to the “Keep your hands off my man” fight as opposed to a “You betrayed me” fight. I also get the feeling that Kotonoha is goign to try to win Makoto back the same way that Sekai stole him away in the first place, with her body.

    Actually, the winner in all of this is Makoto (for now). He’s only in it for the sex anyways, and there is nothing wrong that. However you may disagree with how he’s going about getting it. I don’t even think it matters if he breaks up with her anymore. She already knows he’s cheating on her, she hasn’t confronted him about it or the rumors of them breaking up. She’s encouraging his bad behavior.

    rbg
  38. uhh oo i think kotonoha is gonna crack like in that bad ending where she murders sekai or…………… could b possible they will work out their differences in makoto looks like we will have 2 watch 2 find out

    asian182
  39. lol cmon. whatever you guys say, the fact of the matter is still that Makoto did indeed bone five girls because they let him. Is that purely his fault? No, everyone is aware of what he has done and is doing and so the blame lies equally among those who participated in the said act (this also applies to the anime).

    When did this talk about love start anyways? correct me if i am wrong, but i swear i’ve only heard 好き(suki) in the animes.

    and yes, being an idiot is an attribute of being a human (just like i am an idiot for continuing to post on this comment thread), and i mean that in the sense that no one is perfect and all people make mistakes unless you are Chuck Norris.

  40. Being an idiot is indeed human, but no human is that much of an idiot like Makoto. There is a huge difference between being a normal human and an idiot like Makoto as there is a huge difference between a normal human and Chuck Norris. They are like the two extremes of the spectrum.

    Also, Makoto is not the only one at fault, but he is the most at fault, compared to everyone else, because his indecisiveness is causing suffering to all the girls around him, whereas he does not feel any remorse for what he did. If he was even partially human, he would feel at least a little bit guilty for cheating on Kotonoha.

    Also, the fact that many girls fall for him is just a stereotype for those kinds of shows. It’s like in their world all the decent men are for some reason absent from the scene, so the pretty girls fall for jerks like Makoto. In the real world that kind of guy would never bone five girls, trust me, he would not even bone one, unless she is as retarded as him.

    Finally, this is a thread for the anime, not the game, so obviously if the anime mentions love, we are going to discuss it.

  41. Why is he an idiot? Because he hasn’t “officially” broken up with Kotonoha? Because he didn’t give her more time to open up? Because he cheated on her with Sekai? Where exactly is he being stupid? He’s tried to get with Kotonoha already, and everytime something went wrong he said sorry, even if it wasn’t really his fault. Sekai first kissed him at the end of ep1, and it stuck in his mind. It would be the same for any of you if a female friend you know well just kissed you outta nowhere and ran off. The guys not an idiot at all, he went along with Sekai and now he wants to be with her insted. This doesn’t make you stupid, an idiot, or a moron. An ass, yes, for not going right up to Kotonoha and ending it from the start. That’s the only thing negative about the guy, the way I see it anyways.

    I also think the anime will use it’s own ending, or a variation of one of the games endings.

    GP
  42. Setsuna is so annoying. Even if Makoto is now Sekai’s boyfriend, who is she to stops Makoto from meeting Kotonoha? Can’t she mind her own bussiness? Yay! This episode is the best cause Kotonoha slaps that fuckin bitch Sekai. Too all who is on Sekai and Makoto’s side, come on, wake up! They’re cheatin and betrayin someone who treasures them. When you’re in situations like Kotonoha, what would you feel? Maybe when it happened to you all, in that time you would realize about how jerk is Makoto and Sekai.

  43. I dunno which has more drama, the anime or comments for this anime. But seriously i need to start watching this. It’s like watching a ‘dirty’ romance drama. And i thought Peach Girl was bad.

  44. “Why is he an idiot? Because he hasn’t “officially” broken up with Kotonoha? Because he didn’t give her more time to open up? Because he cheated on her with Sekai?

    To GP who posted this, u know what? you are the one who is STUPID, IDIOT AND MORON. You sure had done something like Makoto to someone before right? If Makoto likes Sekai and doing that to Kotonoha because of the kiss that Sekai gives to him in the end of ep 1 stuck in his mind, why didn’t he just go for Sekai instead of Kotonoha? He only goes for her after she gives him the “practice” right? It means Makoto is a guy who only wants the girls body. What makes him not the most STUPID, IDIOT AND MORON main character in romance anime ever? I think you’ll understand how STUPID, IDIOT AND MORON Makoto is if you’re in the same situation with Kotonoha. Come on if you want to say more about this my email is syaz_pinkyme@hotmail.com I DARE YOU!! I’ll never lose to whoever in Sekai or Makoto’s side!

  45. The drama heats up. I have to commend Kotonoha for somehow keeping her cool after the shellshock and that ending is justing making me want to know whats happening next.

    One thing however thats on my mind is that camera. Seems like that group of girls in Kotonoha’s class is plotting something. Video camera, sheets, lounge, holding down someone, I got a really bad feeling Kotonoha’s problems may just get worse and her mental stability further fractured (no spoilers please if there was something similar in the game).

    And now for something that even surprised myself, after this ep I was even starting to lookm at Makoto slightly higher than before. At the end of the last ep, I wanted to aim a Tomahawk at his groin, mainly cos he gave Kotonoha the cold shoulder. Now at least he seems to be warming up just a tad. Of course, was this simply cos he saw her in a wet shirt? Possible, hard to tell whether it was his brain or crotch doing the thinking. He’s unconvincing headache at the end didn’t help either.

    His chances for forgiveness in my book are slowly flying away, but he can still make things right if he has a major change of heart (though I do doubt that will happen).

  46. I still don’t like Setsuna, even though I clearly understand the whole “i’m just being a friend and doing what a friend should do” thing. Though people may think this is understandable, you never know until you are in the situation. I was once in a similar situation and a friend kept trying to butt in – even if her intentions are harmless etc. – yes, you are a friend and all – but keep in mind it’s STILL a problem involving two people, I don’t want you involved more than you have to. Believe me, the more people are involved, the more rumors spread, the more complicated it becomes.

    And guess what? My friend went around trying to make decisions for me – trying to keep him away from calling me and finding me after class and so on. From an outsider point of view, and even my own, I just wanted her to LEAVE ME ALONE and let me handle my own shit. It’s not the tough bitch act “i can take care of myself”, but more like, leave my personal matters alone. Not only you are being unfair to ME, also to the other party (in this case, the other guy).

    Also – I’m aware the whole blame is not on setsuna. What’s the big deal with sekai telling setsuna that makoto ALREADY broke up with kotonoha? Of course setsuna would be looking out for Sekai then! If setsuna knew they were still together (or at least, not officially broken up – because, makoto is obviously trying to ignore it, despite that he slept with sekai already), she wouldn’t have acted so bold then, maybe.

  47. After seeing this episode, I am even more convinced that they are going towards a bloody end. The ominous music playing at several times keeps hinting that something sinister is eventually going to happen.

    Kotonoha is already showing signs of mental instability. The blank look in her eyes when she was un-knitting the scarf really showed that she is starting to lose it. The fact that everyone is against her does not help. Setsuna’s giving her evil glares, Otome and her gang of skanks are plotting something, Nanami is accusing her of seducing another man. It’s really sad, actually, since she did not come on to anybody so far. It’s not her fault that she has a sexy body and some guys keep ogling her with their perverted eyes. She does not even have one single friend to confide in and keeps all her feelings bottled up inside. The slap in the end was really good, since she had an opportunity to release some of that frustration. Besides, let’s face it, Sekai deserved it.

    Sekai seems pretty stable so far when compared to Kotonoha, but that might still change by the end of the show. It’s perfectly reasonable of her to be annoyed at Makoto. She should really ask him straight if he is really serious about being her boyfriend or if he is just playing around. The trouble is, she is so hopelessly in love with him that she is unwilling to risk their current relationship by making him choose. It’s quite sad, really. Even though she has many friends, she still feels inferior to Kotonoha, mostly due to her body “attributes”.

    I still find Makoto really unrealistic and hard to understand. Does this guy ever think about anything, or is he a mindless zombie. At one point I was starting to think he was trying to be nice to Kotonoha, but then he stares at her chest like that. It’s obvious his hormones got the better of him.

    Anyways, good episode. I’ll be looking forward to next week.

    Darklord
  48. At the end there I was like “Just smack the bitch across the face Kotonoha!” and when she did it was awesome. After watching 5,6,7 in a row it was like watching a train wreck the whole time. It’s incredibly satisfying to see Kotonoha finally do something about the situation. I never like characters that try and delude themselves all the time.

    Totally. I still remember his date – can you get any stupider? If he didn’t give a **** about anything but her boobs he could’ve at least made an attempt to hide it, haha.

  50. @yuzuyu
    hmmm having a friend like Setsuna and having a friend like Sekai.Gosh I can’t decide which is worse.A backstabbing bitch who you thought who was your friend but seduced your boyfriend away over a friend who is trying to help improve your relation with YOUR boyfriend and preventing him from trying to get along with another girl.WOW so hard to pick which kind of friend I want -__-|||

    BlEaChMaNiA
  51. still… getting more and more intresting.. but i really hope it does’t end up like the game… with all the emm emrm “BLOODY” ending… =D~~ hope he gets the 2 girls in the end gwfahaha.. it’ll be something different for a change….

    padfoot
  52. I didn’t say Sekai is any better than Setsuna. Plus if she thinks simply a blocking kotonoha’s phone number will solve the problem, then -_-. What she is doing will probably make Sekai even more insecure of herself – as if she isn’t already, feeling inferiori to Kotonoha.

    But if i have to pick between having Sekai or Setsuna as a friend, obviously one would pick Setsuna – but to be honest I wouldn’t appreciate her meddling either. Plus, what was the result of the phone blocking thing anyway? Kotonoha ends up going to Makoto’s apartment instead – and also when you can’t talk to a person, it makes it even more alluring to do so (forbidden fruit concept). You can call it trying to “improve the situation” all you want but at the end of the day, it is not as convenient as just that. That is too idealistic.

    yuzuyu
  53. Im not sure why or how I can keep watching this show with such great interest. I HATE everyone except for Sekai currently, but from how things are going that is likely to change soon. Makoto is the lowest form of scum, Setsuna is a meddling bitch, Kotonoha is dumb as bricks, and those stupid bitches who pick on Kotonoha all the time drive me crazy. Though it seems like that everyone hates her for no good reason. Yet despite all that I find this greatly enjoyable to watch. Perhaps I just like seeing who I hate the most during the course of any given episode. Im seriously hoping for a serious BAD END, something along the lines of a truck bomb driving right into the school and blowing all these stupid kids to death.

  54. “Im seriously hoping for a serious BAD END, something along the lines of a truck bomb driving right into the school and blowing all these stupid kids to death.”

    Ha ha ha!
    Talk about the “Great Hinamizawa Disaster”. That sort of thing actually happens in Higurashi. Volcanic gases erupt and everybody in the village dies (usually without one lucky survivor). What a way to kill off an entire cast of characters. I guess what I’m trying to say is…it’s been done before, so it’s certainly possible (I doubt it will happen here though).

    Darklord
  55. lol – this episode sure wasnt right ^^
    first of all: school days – the animated novel contains severall flags with sexual content (like in this episode there were 2 possible scenes guess where ^^)
    second: because its the adaption of the game, there are quite some “bad” endings possible:
    #Ryunatta at 5:38 pm on August 16th, 2007

    Hey we now have a hint of Kotonah slicing up Sekai ending…–> thats greatly possible
    but also: kotonah kills herself, sekai stabs makoto,kotonah slices sekai during daylight… he get driven over by kotonah, Setsuna plays with some money and when “he” awakes “he”s now Taisuke Girlfriend…lol now that doesnt happend. but: there are other possible endings…he gets BOTH Kotonah and Sekai (pregnant)or all girls everyday- like shuffle – well he also goes for setsuna ^^ well nanami would be bad either but still has a boyfriend who is in the school’s basketball club. Her boyfriend is a hardcore otaku. And there are those minor chars too so…well 3 very bad endings 4 funny bad endings and well the rest is lovidovy with kotonah/sekai/minorchars…

    playedthegame
  56. what the hell….to tell the truth, i feel sorry for Kotohana and i think Itou was kind of idiot…First he loves Kotohana then he loves Sekai without knowing it, i’ll kill him really…i’ll used my Fictional Character named Kevin Nightroad then published it for the next episode to beat the hell up!!! Itou plays the heart of everygirls, that is unforgivable!!!!

    Klien Nightroad
  57. if it was me, i rather not be so horny and goes back to sekai. and for the special training, makoto could have avoided it if his clever/matured/justice type of a gentlemen needed in the WORLD.. i think makoto is sucky~

  58. Few times have I wished for someone to be slapped as bad as I did for Setsuna this ep, what a nozy bitch, she doesn’t know the whole story, of course the other two won’t clarify it to her so it’s not as frustrating for us to watch. Kotonoha is so ronery it hurts.

    @Fuhrer: I agree, it’s almost painful to watch yet you can’t help but do.

    I guess what I really wish to happen on this series (and easily in other animus cause it’s more of a jap culture thing) is for the characters to really express themselves to one another, that they could fully state their feelings and thoughts and be heard, I don’t know why, but I think it would be easier to watch that way.

    LifeCarrier
  59. My analysis of some of the characters; lets start with the minor ones.

    Setsuna – meddling! She is really insightful and seems to be able to guess at the situations (or in other words, a bit nozy) – however she does not know the whole story therefore even adds on to the already misunderstood atmosphere regarding the Sekai-Makoto-Kotonoha issue. She is doing this out of the ‘goodness of her heart’ and even SHE knows that what she’s doing is wrong (phone blocking), which is why she repeatedly uses the “i’m doing this for sekai’s sake” excuse over and over.

    Otome – “bitchy”, that’s all i have to say. She would be NOBODY without her group of friends, who are equally mean as well. She knows Kotonoha has something to do with Makoto, and therefore she holds a grudge. You can even see how she smiles evilly when Kotonoha gives in to their stupid requests. I hate their “holier than thou” attitude and they all act as if they’re important (“we have to take our leave from our clubs as well! if you don’t get us those sheets we can’t help you blah blah”). They probably think safety is in numbers, which allows them to bully ones who are weaker.

    Nanami – chill a bit. As a girl, I hate the girls in this anime, who are always taking a spasm over boys. So you see Taisuke asking Kotonoha out – and blames it on Kotonoha for Hikari’s sake, when it’s so obvious to see that Taisuke is the one trying to make a move. And who are you to be accusing Kotonoha that “you made a move on itou before, not on taisuke?” … if she is, so what? Is this any of your business? Setsuna announced that “kotonoha and makoto have broken up” and they believe her – so…what’s the problem even IF kotonoha is hitting on Taisuke, since she’s “single”?

    Makoto – On the same page – YOU eavesdropped on the whole conversation between taisuke and konotonha – you jerk, why didn’t you at least defend her when Nanami was doing all the accusing? Bad boyfriend and friend in general. He probably followed after Kotonoha after seeing through her shirt. I mean, the guy loves sex – and that’s “normal” according to most people. However most people are also not “idiots”. I would love to see that he gets what he deserves. People can’t continue to say things like “but guys like sex” and use that as an excuse for him. I don’t think it’s as simple as that. The guy has no respect for people that are his friends IMO. While he shouldn’t die just because he is an idiot, I really DO wish for the bad endings…

    Sekai – She is good at heart – but then who isn’t? She’s been generally a good character – a good friend to all, befriended Kotonoha, which is nice because K doesn’t really got friends. However, she is soon manipulated by her own feelings. I know being in love makes people act funny but that is not an excuse. We know that she is so in love with makoto that she couldn’t help it, but she could have made more of an effort to tell Kotonoha at least. It was painful to watch, how they’re dragging this out and K eventually discovers it for herself. However, she IS the one who started it all, indirectly. I believe Makoto is too dense to make a move on Sekai when he was still with Kotonoha. However Sekai sort of “sparked the flame” when she kissed him (I mean, why would you do something like this in the first place even if you can’t help you; you just set the two of them up and then you go and kiss him), and then the practice sessions. YOu can’t just expect a guy to “treat” it as “practice”. I really don’t see “practice” is something a friend should try to teach another without another purpose behind it.

    Kotonoha – I always feel so sorry for her, because everyone seems to have something against her just because of a nice figure, or that she’s too quiet to even defend herself. I mean, it’s not a FAULT to have a shy personality – we all know that some people are hard to get them to open up – it is especially hard when no one even bothers to reach out to her – and the ones that did are Sekai and Makoto, who betrayed her as well. Her only “friends” have betrayed her and the other people hate her – so I won’t be surprised if she ends up losing her mind and kill of Makoto at the end. I really DO like how she’s trying to improve her shyness with each episode though. However she should have slapped Makoto (though slapping sekai was kind of satisfying in a way) – however, if she’s in denial all this time even after seeing Sekai/Makoto kiss, it is obvious that Kotonoha still wants him, so slapping Makoto instead would be inconsistent. Plus I KIND of understand why she would slap sekai over makoto because a) as the audience, i know sekai initiated this whole thing as much as makoto did b) Sekai approached Kotonoha first as her FRIEND, probably one of the few ones she has at the school – so this is viewed as a pretty bad backstab, c) because of all this, she has to take shit from people like otome, nanami, and setsuna.

  60. Why are all the guys in this show such perverted retards? Real high school guys are not like that. Even if they are horny and want sex, they can usually contain it and resist grabbing every girl by the ass and such.

    I understand this is a girls’ show, but some guys like romance shows as well. I know I do. Why can’t they include at least one decent manly character who we can cheer for and hope to end up with one of the girls? Since I do not like the yuri idea, the only thing I can hope for is for Makoto to finally man up and correct his mistakes, but we all know that’s never going to happen.

    Seriously, I hate shows that present all guys as wimps and perverted monsters.

  61. Makoto you are tha hero of the season!!!!

    come on you can do it!!!

    but i guess sekai is getting in trobles and feeling bad, and its your fault. you have to give more attention to sekai… she is your girl!!!

    alaos!

  62. The creator of the show created a character like Makoto because he or she (more likely to be a female) wanted to show the ugly side of relationships and the concept of love, and how some insincere dumbasses see it as a joke, character like Makoto does it perfectly. And he or she knows it. There was one scene where a seemingly unimportant remark Makoto has made talking to his friend saying “Wow, that game’s main character sure is the lowest of the low.” Like what many others have said before me, any girl with any respect for herself wouldn’t sacrifice friendship, purity, or even her time for this type of fag/dumbass. Many say that there’s nothing wrong with Makoto scoring chicks just cause he’s a player. Oh ok, rapist running wild everyday is a reality too, does that mean there’s nothing wrong with it also? The guy is just a scum, that’s all. The show’s purpose is to teach us not to be a pushover like Kotonoha and be assertive of one’s self, not to be weak minded and spiritually fragile like Sekai. Lastly, not to be a fag like Makoto, cause fags get on people’s nerve and just don’t become one.

    Here you go
  63. I’m officially pissed off with Sekai, Setsuna and everyone else on the female cast.

    Matoko is still being an asshole; unable to decide which girl he loves (if he really loves one of them). Sekai is now guilty for keeping up with Makoto their relationship a secret from Kotonoha; and now Setsuna is a bitch for what she have done to Kotonoha’s reputation. Now everyone treats her like crap because of that lie about her and Makoto breaking off.

    Sekai being angry at Kotonoha’s words was just stupid, she knew very well what was wrong since the beginning but starred to believe what Setsuna and Makoto does unconscious (making her believe their relationship was fine and fair). Now that bitch needs to learn a lesson. Sadly it looks like we’re heading a bloodlust ending, when Kotonoha surely will pay for that killing herself or killing Sekai

    Kotonoha is at fault too for not taking action rapidly, but now that she saw Sekai leaving Makoto’s apartment everything has to be clear for her.

    Seriously, I need to see School Days on weekends to have enough time to calm down.

    Syaoran Li
  64. Erg. In my opinion, Makoto is the one at wrong. Not Kotonoha nor Sekai. Well, He was the one who attacked Sekai first, so.. you get wat I mean? Sekai gave in because she had feelings 4 Makoto I guess. Kotonoha alrdy knows tat Makoto is cheating on her yet she still doesnt want to leave him. Come on both of u, Kotonoha and Sekai, leave Makoto! 😀 In one of the game endings, Makoto died. Killed by Sekai. Isn’t tat a gd ending? Lol. U could catch the episodes on Youtube. 😀

    Karmilla
  65. That scene about the camera was important if you played the game.

    They record what happens in the “lounge” in one of the cafes or something that has a … bed. In the game one of two things happens if the room plays a part – either Kotonoha is raped by Taisuke, or Makoto has sex with Kotonoha and the video is later accidentally shown to Sekai.

    (Actually something else happens with one of Sekai’s friends, the tall one with short hair, but I can’t really remember what happened – it doesn’t involve Makoto)

    Setsuna is definitely strongly aggressive about keeping Sekai and Makoto together. Remind anyone of someone? Reminds me of how Sekai was forcing Makoto onto Kotonoha, hiding her own feelings. It seems like maybe Setsuna is also hiding some of her own feelings for Makoto. Sigh.

    OF course Setsuna does have feelings for Makoto in the game. And they went so far as to make an Alternate Universe game called “Summer Days” where Setsuna is the main heroine

  66. Just to insert my own two cents into things…

    Normally, any H-Visual Novel that would get adapted into an anime would mostly stick to canon as is the case of Fate Stay Night (not sure how Kanon or Tsukihime turned out since I never got into them as much). The question that bugs me is what route in School Days is defined as the canon route envisioned by the creators?

    If anything, they may do a mix of good/bad endings. Maybe both Kotonoha and Sekai will try to stab each other with their saw/knife and Makoto ends up getting in the way to try and protect them both and gets killed over it. Then… suicide afterwards? Who knows.
