Peeped this over on Akibablog. The final dvd volume of the anime School Days saw a Director’s Cut release today in Japan. The original on air tv version of the final episode censored the blood in the final chapter of the story due to a murder involving a teenage girl that hacked her father to death with an axe that occurred in Japan just prior to the airing. To avoid association with the murder, the episode was delayed, but was later shown with the censored blood. I dunno if the censorship involved just the blood, or if some scenes were cut as well, though it didn’t look like any of the scenes were cut at all from what I saw. In all honesty I don’t even know why they censored the blood; the violence was pretty brutal in itself imo. If anything was cut though, this director’s cut dvd would surely include them. Fans of the series that felt somehow incomplete (black blood doesn’t make sense…unless…omg Makoto was a robot!!) with the aired final episode can now rejoice.
