[anime] School Days final volume Director’s Cut dvd out

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.

    Yah is very good man. I love SCHOOL DAYS and would have hope they change the ending tho it sucked. IN kinda a good way to twist you up. It was good at first but change it my heart cant take the thoughts of it any more.

    I enjoyed school days too and though it ended the way it did, it left me in a total “man I’m not gonna stop thinking about this for awhile” state lol, which whenever that happens is a sign for me that says “this series was really good.” It was pretty unique in that you don’t see many series end in such a way, much less romantic drama series.
