Plot Summary: Makoto Ito rides the train to and from school every day. However, at the beginning of his second term, he falls in love with a beautiful girl that also rides the train. Unfortunately, she barely knows of his existence. Her name is Kotonoha Katsura, and though they attend the same school, they are not in the same class. In an attempt to catch her eye, Makoto enlists the aid of a close female friend of his: Sekai Saionji. She helps him, despite the fact that she - unbeknownst to Makoto - is in love with him. Thus the three are bound in a love triangle of life changing proportions.
My opinion: Unfortunately I haven't had the time to watch School Days yet, although I've postponed it several times; and every time I thought I'd watch it, I wasn't in the mood for this genre, or something came up.. In any case, I cannot share my opinion on this series with you, however what I can say is that it's quite popular for an anime concerning school-life, probably because it takes a different (more realistic?) approach on adolescence, love triangles and such things, and it surely follows another path (I was convinced of this after watching the first amv). I've seen it being recommended many times for various reasons, so now I can only suggest you try it (after all it's only 13 episodes long), and hopefully it will prove to be entertaining, and not a waste of time.

1. All the episodes posted on this blog are hosted by a third party, uploading.com. Although you can now download all of them with decent speed and with no problems, you may want to consider becoming a full member (premium member), for a meager $9.95 per month, or $49.95 per year. Becoming a full member would allow you to download files with very high speeds, of up to 10 MB/s (meaning you could dld an entire anime in less than 10 minutes), besides many other benefits.
If you have decided to give it a go, or you just want to find out more about the membership, click here.
2. All episodes on this blog are english subbed/dubbed and, of course, of high quality. For the best viewing, I recommend watching them with the latest version of VLC / Real Player / Gom Player.
