Random Musings – So Much For School Days

For those of you waiting to see the final episode of School Days, some bad news: TV Kanagawa suddenly decided not to air it and replaced it with a nature/scenery program instead. This appears to have been without any prior announcement, so speculation is rampant right now about what really happened. Some people, including MOON PHASE, are suggesting that it might have something to do with how a girl killed her father with an axe yesterday. If true, that would mean that the School Days finale was indeed very bloody.

I’m really disappointed at this point, but there’s really no choice but to wait until tomorrow to see if Chiba TV or TV Aichi air it. Both still list School Days in their schedule, however there’s no telling what will happen. If they don’t air it, then there’s technically still Teletama on Thursday and TV Osaka on Friday (though the latter is very unlikely due to its past record). For now, this probably means that I move the schedule around so that I blog Claymore and Romeo X Juliet today, and Bleach and School Days tomorrow, assuming it airs. Also, I’m still working on the fall preview, but it’s coming slowly because of schoolwork and job-related stuff. Hopefully it’ll be done by sometime next week.

Edit: If you’re curious or bored and have a Nico Nico account, you can now watch the full 28 minutes of scenery.
2nd Edit: Chiba TV, TV Aichi, and Teletama have all taken the show off their schedules.
3rd Edit: Mainichi News now has an article confirming that this was indeed because of the axe murder and that the airings on at least TV Kanagawa, Chiba TV, and TV Aichi have been postponed. It also confirms that there is a scene of violence done by a high school girl in the episode and that they changed the color of blood from red to black, but still decided not to air it. One possible ray of hope lies with AT-X, which the article claims is still considering showing the finale on September 27th since they do R-15 airings.

    Considering this and the past events of the past episodes, this gives a good chance that the ending the anime went with was the “To My Children” ending.

  • September 19, 2007 at 11:03 pmzambio

    wtf man dude this shit is so fucked up man if they were fucking showing it why the fuck didnt they know about the violince

  • September 20, 2007 at 12:01 amKiron

    Girl kills father for sleeping around or something like that.
    Kotonoha kills Makoto for sleeping around.
    Girl wore black dress while killing her father.
    Kotonoha was wearing a black dress when last seen.

    Thus the ending for School days is most likley
    Kotonoha snapping (even more than she already has) and killing Makoto, well thats the obvious ending, we might see another girl kill another one of the girls, but unlikley.

    wht is this if sm1 is going get killed so be it
    but i like “makato” to be hurt as well those girls
    who decd to make the film at school festival

  • September 20, 2007 at 1:42 amMayuna

    Kiron >>> Kotonoha never killed Makoto XD If you mean the knife-thing on the beach, that’s Sekai. And I think her dress wasn’t black either XD The girl said she changed to a black dress because she didn’t want to have bloodstains all over her PJ’s. Or wore you talking about what you think would happen? XP
    I don’t think it’s very likely that Koto would kill Makoto, since he told her he loves her last episode. Plus Koto is not the type for killing off the person she loves, instead she kills his lover XD …or commit suicide D;

  • September 20, 2007 at 7:22 amTOMA

    It is really a pity that the last episode ended up like this. WTF.

    Beacuase I have only watch episode 1 and 2 at the moment (with the others left in my hard disk un-watched due to my new job. >

  • September 20, 2007 at 11:26 amFlopstall

    How could people think there is a connection between the two events when the episode was scheduled to air after the crime took place?

  • September 20, 2007 at 11:48 amHYGHONRYCE

    its actually going to be subbed by sat or before

  • September 20, 2007 at 12:15 pmDarkShadow

    Yeah it’s going to be aired the week after it should be airing.

    And about the connection:
    Well, there could be a connection if you look at the girl, who killed his father with an AXE. Kotonoha also kills Makoto with an axe…if you know the game. So there is a slight connection between the events.

  • September 20, 2007 at 12:39 pmVictor

    @ DarkShadow

    The game had no such ending with Kotonoha killing Makoto in the game, neither was an axe involved in any of the endings.

    Show Spoiler ▼

    The only connection I see with the murder and the anime/game is that the father of the girl had relationships with other women, just like Makoto. So I wont be surprised that Makoto dies in the end. Bastard deserves it.

  • September 20, 2007 at 12:41 pmTamario

    DarkShadow: No axe has shown up yet and there’s no telling if that will be the ending they choose.

  • September 20, 2007 at 12:52 pmFlopstall

    @ Victor:
    Based on what’s happened in the show so far, Bad End 2 seems the most likely, if they do not not come up with an original ending for the anime.

  • September 20, 2007 at 1:00 pmVictor


    I totally agree. It seems bad end 2 is the closest we may get, but probably shown differently based on the anime. So I guess we are in for a possible game/anime-mixed original ending haha.

    http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm1094350 -> Here’s an interesting video if you really want to see it for those Nico2 members. They actually discuss Higurashi in relation as well as talking about the incident in general.

    Anyhow, unrest is unrest. You just have to understand the position that networks are in. I’d easily have done the same thing in their position. You just have to sit back, accept it, and wait and see what develops. As simple as that.

  • September 21, 2007 at 9:07 amFlareKnight

    Sadly like how games get crap for murders being committed seems a similar tale is true out in Japan for anime. But out there they cancel and delay things while here we just get annoyed at all the complaining about the games. No possible way anyone knew or could come up with a murder plot all on their own.

    Nothing that can be done but wait. School Days and Higurashi are taking the hits for some deranged child.

  • September 21, 2007 at 9:56 amlalala

    so practially anything related to violence, kids and axes are being affect by this eh…

  • September 21, 2007 at 11:07 amturd_moralist@eat_shit_die.com

    All dumbass moralist eat shit and die.

    Concrete killing incident where a Japanese girl is brutally tortured and murdered: the perpetrator get privacy protection and their names are not realeased to the public because they are minors

    Axe incident: innocent animes like higurashi and school days get banned from airing

    I cannot understand the dumb moral sense of dumbass moralist. All the perpetrators enjoy privileges of forgiveness while innocent parties suffer from harsh punishment.

  • September 21, 2007 at 3:58 pmRamirex

    It is officially confirmed channel AT-X will show the final chapter so School Days on September the 27th at 10:30 and 21:30. So we have to wait to see the finale, yeeeeeeeeeeh I’m happy again, I hope no more murders. This the website of the channel if you don’t believe me


  • September 21, 2007 at 8:23 pmLQY

    Well, there is several things in the axe murder case:

    1, The girl is a 16-year-old student of the manga college in Japan.

    2, Her mother tried to cover up by telling police that the father was suicided; nevertheless,the girl showed up with all blood that covering her body. The girl was laughing lunatically while the polices were stunt.

    3, The father’s head had been chop off and slice into pieces and the girl was planning all things up by the manga she read (for her school, of course).

    4, The girl is a domesticed violence victim and she hates her father because he got a mistress and her mother and sister did not care about it. Most of all, he was a police but he is corrupted one.

    5, Some animations such as Higurashi has already been criticized by Japanese public opinions and the TV stations are trying to avoid more political pressures. By the way, I think they are doing the good job for any possible damaging control.

    Anyway, I am not very, very happy about the concellation either.

  • September 21, 2007 at 8:36 pmTensai Otaku


    Yes that´s true I was going to post it at first but i thouth it to be an irrelevant news!!
    But this case has chocked all the people in japan…my country is more violent of course….but hey they are japanese…and their nature was suposed to be calm and peacefull……so I really think they can be as much SICK and SICKO as everybody in the whole fucking world so…no school days for you people….GO TO YOUR ROOM DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND JUST CRY BABY!!! :D

  • September 21, 2007 at 9:38 pmKiron

    Mayuna>>> It’s what I think will happen, Kotonoha has obviously gone insane.

    Tensai Otaku >>>> Japan Murders while “Rare” are always to the extreme for some reason, like really really really screwed up, like you hit someone with your car thats a normal murder, but in Japan they hit someone with the car, then have sex with the body, then do some weird “Psycho” mother fetish thing with it while ending it all by trying to feed it too school children.
    Japan making 90% of the worlds weird shit since 1953.

    Unlike school days, higurashi kai doesn’t have tat kind of luck…., Tokai TV has taken it off the air completely, but i’m not sure about other TV stations. Here’s the article:

  • September 24, 2007 at 10:37 amDarkniter

    what the point of showing the anime which they never check THE WHOLE ANIME before airing it on tv zzzz…
    and to cancel the anime itself halfway or when the anime is going to end….

  • September 24, 2007 at 4:51 pmJohnny

  • September 25, 2007 at 1:21 ampixy

    now that’s just stupid… blame the anime, not the person…b*tches

  • September 25, 2007 at 2:32 amAmamiyaYuuka

    pixy > easy there, tiger. The anime isn’t against the law, what that girl did is. Sure, it’s very very sad that the father died, but it has nothing to do with SD. That’s why everyone’s so mad. There are tons of murders everyday in Japan, but they’re still airing anime with violence (there are sooo much anime in which someone gets killed), so why not this time?
    And let’s not call each other names ._.

  • September 25, 2007 at 7:25 amEmagEvil

    Well said, AmamiyaYuuka…

    … And chill, guys. In 3 days it will be 27th…

    Am i a little late for a ‘Nice Boat’?

    Just wondering if this ending might be the second, the third bad ending, or an original one?

  • September 25, 2007 at 9:27 amTim

    I’m pretty sure pixy was speaking sarcastically, referring to the people that cancelled the anime.
    I of course agree that the show should not be to blame. Blaming everything else while not taking responsibility for ourselves is one of the biggest problems in modern society.
    However, if they took it off merely to be sensitive to the families involved in the real tragedy then I have no problem with that.

  • September 25, 2007 at 1:14 pmFlopstall

    If you want to blame an anime episode, isn’t Claymore #24 a good candidate? Priscilla kills her father with an axe, and that airing seemed to precede the real life incident by a few days.

  • September 25, 2007 at 1:16 pmFlopstall
