Ray’s Take: hey you know, someone’s doing well. Quit moaning and see if lessons can be learned from their model.
Krauser III’s Take: It was I orchestrating things behind the scenes and converted many! You are suprised that I care about DBZ, yes? Mwa ha ha ha ha ha!
From The Diet 3 Daily –
Sept 29, 2007. Immediately after the last episode of “School Days” was played, fans gathered in front of the station and celebrated the death of Makoto.
“Nice death.” A chubby man with glasses gushed, then he immediately corrected himself: “I mean, geez, this is more bloody than the game. But at least we got to see him die without having to buy another copy of the game.”
“Waa! Sekai sama!” Another chubby man with thick-rimmed glasses said with tears: “I loved you! I loved you! I still love you! Damn that psycho bitch for killing my Sekai-sama!”
Immediately, another chubby man with thick rimmed glasses approached him from behind and started beating him on the head with a paper fan. The two began to fight desperately.
“Kill them all, baby!” A woman with wearing a shirt that said in katakana: “Makoto must die” was frantically swinging a wooden kitchen knive wearing the uniform of the school that the females characters goes to. “I cried tears of relief when Sekai-san sliced and diced him like sashimi. Hmm…Delicious!”
Incredibly, she was attacked by some men and women wearing the shirt that says: “the Makoto-sama fan club” with foam bats, but she fought back valiantly with her wooden kitchen knive.
As far as our reporter had seen, no injuries had occured.
The station personnel seemed slightly startled but didn’t react. Nobody even picked up the phone and called the police.
“They’re just dumb otakus…I mean fans. These people can’t do any harm.” said an employee refused to be named. “Besides, it’s actually late and I’m going to the bar to drink with my friends. If the security guards aren’t going to do anything, then what do I care? These are just stupid people having nothing better to do.”
A female employee identified as “Sekai” said: “These people are probably drunk and they need to go home and sleep and don’t take a stupid anime seriously.” She paused, then added: “Japan is becoming more and more unsafe these days.”
Our reporter received no bodily harm.
From ANN –
The official Japanese sites for the School Days anime series and the AT-X anime satellite channel have announced that AT-X will run the 12th and last episode on Thursday at 9:30 p.m. JST and repeat next Tuesday morning at 12:30 a.m. Those will be the first public showings of this reportedly violent episode, since all over-the-air broadcasters preempted it after an axe murder was allegedly committed by a schoolgirl in Kyoto, Japan last week.
Overflow, the game label of the developer Stack and the creator of the original School Days game, has scheduled the two announced preview screenings of the episode in the Akihabara shopping district of Tokyo on Thursday at 9:30 p.m. (simultaneously with the AT-X premiere) and 10:35 p.m. The showings will be held in the Tokyo Anime Center’s Akiba 3D Theater on the Akihabara UDX building’s fourth floor. Overflow has also changed its admission requirements; attendees must bring an identification card as well as either the School Days or Summer Days PC game, but the game no longer has to be unopened as previously announced.
Ray’s take: It’s old news but hey, when it come to ratings and money, who give a fuck about morality? The competition heats up as the restriction is loosened up. As fans, you don’t have to give a shit about that, just remember to bring your chainsaws…(playing “Psycho” stabbing music over and over again and again…)
