JAST USA, Japanese maker 0verflow, and localization group Sekai Project are teaming up to present School Days HQ, the animated visual novel event of 2011. You’ve seen the anime – now you can experience the game that defined the animated eroge genre in its full, uncensored, definitive high quality format. Newly formed brand JAST Densetsu will be overseeing the production, with localization work done by Sekai Project and technical assistance from 0verflow, in a project of unprecedented three-way scope.
In School Days you take the role of Makoto, a student at Sakakino Academy. Like any other young man you have your eye on the girls around you with thoughts of more than just friendship, and when your classmate Sekai offers to introduce you to that cute girl you see on the train every morning you can’t say no.
Her name is Kotonoha, and she’s everything you could ask for in a girlfriend – but when you’re about to go on your first date and turn to Sekai to thank her for her matchmaking efforts, she takes her payment in the form of a kiss. Could it be that she has feelings for you too? (Spoilers: she does).
The tale of one of the most infamous love triangles in anime and eroge history begins, with you guiding Makoto through the perils and pitfalls of romance with Kotonoha, Sekai, and the other heroines of School Days. Will you skillfully maneuver your way to one of the game’s more than a dozen happy endings, or will you end up on the road (or boat) to perdition? Experience one of the most memorable tales of the decade in interactive full animation!
