After watching the series/all the other movies (Which I couldn't even get through the last one because I felt like a dumb dumb for even trying to watch it.) School Days. I.... I... I just can't even. I just couldn't even bear through seeing this last movie when I realized that I am an idiot for watching the entire thing. The whole show is just stupid, but hey! It's leading up to a "dark" conclusion that doesn't even come close to comparing to Elfin Lied, or other gory ass brutal anime.
"You can't show how you feel just by wanting something to happen."
To say that I was a bit hesitant to write this review would be an understatement. Mainly because of all the blowback I'd receive from those who would rather be set aflame than have to watch School Days again. But with my initial viewing of the show years ago, I had a much different experience.
So let's get into it: School Days.
I quite honestly don't recall how I even came upon this series. I wasn't recommended that I watch it by another forumgoer, I didn't see it on my suggestions on my MAL page, and I didn't watch a lick of it on YouTube. One thing I do know is this: I'm certainly glad I came upon it. Because not only is Shiki one of my favorite anime series of all time, but it's probably my favorite of all time when it comes to the horror genre.
This is another one of those 'one of the greatest' for me. This is perhaps one of the best horror stories ever told. It is presented in such a way that it's not very predictable, and the plot actually has a point to it. Rather than just trying to entertain the viewers, which it still does very well. So what is about Shiki that appeals to me? I believe it's the great animation, soundtrack, dubbed voice acting, and the overall plot.
Steins;Gate is a masterpiece. Anyone who says otherwise without giving you definitive proof of some kind of bad plot hole or character stretch is simply a hater. Don't try to reconcile with them, cause they don't deserve to enjoy what this anime has to offer.
I really can't describe the experience of watching Steins;Gate, you've just gotta do it. If you don't do it, you're missing out.
It's great. Time-travelling and shit, confusing things and shit, Moeka's sexy body and shit. What's not to like?
