    But does it have the “Good” endings?

  • Anime10121

    WOW…thats crappy :/

    But then again, from what I’ve heard, this aint a typical “Days” VN…

  • Akari Akaza

    School days is back….^_^ for more brutal endings.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Seems it was an ugly boat.

  • dark-kyon

    i am sure what the low score is for the lack of kokoro route.

  • Griever

    Sal, 6 + 6 + 5 + 5 is 22, not 21.

      Math fart.

      Also, 6 + 6 + 5 + 6 = 23. You re-wrote the score wrong. =P

      • Griever

        I know. I tried to change it before you saw it.

        It seems this was a sum that no-one was allowed to do right!

    This is what happens when you try to go straight, 0verflow.

    Get back to what we know and love.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Nah I don’t care, I love visual novels that do things like this so it’s fine.

    Hmm, now I want to know what the review said. 5s (in Famitsu, though?) suggest that there may be some flaw or something lacking, so I might wait for a price decrease before trying it.

  • British_Otaku

    A little worrying given that I was highly considering importing this, but I was on the edge of waiting as I have too many Japanese Visual Novels or games to finish in general.

    I know it probably won’t be as good as School Days from an animation front, but it should be an interesting tale especially if they get a bit of mileage out of the survival element. I

    Fortunately, I’ll miss out on nothing (does a cloth with Kotonoha and her little sister or various other small trinkets exclusive to stores count?) by waiting while many other games try to guilt me with exclusive DLC.

    Famitsu are as dumb as always. Doesn’t cancel my pre-order or anything. I’m still getting it. With soundtrack too.

    Is Island Days related to School Days??

    • kurosan9712

      it is. It is a spin-off story of School Days, about the group ending up on an uninhabited island, and trying to survive there.
      Well, MC has TWO survival problems, considering the environment is full of beasts AND he has AT LEAST one yandere around him.
