Meh School Days is mostly just a slightly below average show with a great ending. All of the characters are awful and impossible to feel sorry for. The first half of the show is down right boring generic rom-com garbage and when the show starts to get interesting the characters aren't really all that believable. I mean the loli
How the fuck does that make any kind of sense? So while the second half of the show is an improvement it's still not spectacular other than it just gave me this morbid fascination to see how bad things could get. Then the ending which was the best part wasn't built up enough and kind of comes out of nowhere so while I admit it was a good or even great ending it could have been done much better. School Days would have been much better off starting with the dark tone and then maintaining it throughout then I think the show would have fit together much better.

You make a lot of valid points, yet I disagree with some of your reasoning, but you should really try Shigofumi. It sounds like something you'd be interested in.

SN- This anime helped me get into the whole "harem" genre in general. All of the scandalous moments and the rom/com beginning that turned tragic was amazing. It broke all of the usual trends set be-forth.

^ Yeah I watched Shigofumi a few months ago and enjoyed it. That show was definitely at it's best when it was being dark and twisted. There were a few of episodes that were just fantastic in that regard. It had it's lighter elements as well but even those episodes were enjoyable. I think out of everything the best moments for Shigofumi came in episode 6 when which focused on bullying, it had one of the best buildups and climaxes I've seen. The rest of the episodes were also good but that is the one episode I think exceeded everything else the show was able to do.

this was by far the most depressing WTF am I watching anime to date. Even though i saw this anime take the turn toward Heart Break Ridge i couldn't stop watching. By episode ten i knew it was going to end bad, but i kept hoping for that happy ending. As i am typing this i am extremely pissed off at Ito he could have avoided all of this by being straight forward with kotonoha and just dumped her in the begining she wouldn't have gone all crazy and been treated like garbage. In the end this anime pissed me off while also pulling on my emotions making me unmanly.
