School Days Visual Novel EndingsEdit
Bloody Conclusion (Bloody End in HQ release)Edit
After Makoto breaks up with Kotonoha and makes it clear he wants to be with Sekai. She desperately tries to win back Makoto until one night Makoto's mother lets her in Makoto's home to wait for him. Makoto and Sekai not knowing she's there proceed to have sex. Hearing it transforms Kotonoha's eyes and makes her emotionless. She obtains a key to Makoto's home and proceeds to hear Makoto and Sekai having sex many times until she gets on the balcony and sees a hacksaw. She starts to laugh maniacally and disappears. After a while Kotonoha meets Sekai and Makoto on a train station overpass. Sekai says long time no see and tries to greet Kotonoha but Kotonoha swipes her hacksaw at Sekai's neck through her coat causing her to bleed violently. Kotonoha then starts to laugh maniacally again with a shocked Makoto next. It's implied Sekai died.
In the LxH version, after Kotonoha's killed Sekai, she tries to hand the hacksaw to Makoto. Being shocked by what she did, he slaps her hand (that has the knife) and the knife ends up under the bridge and Kotonoha's hand starts bleeding. She decides to get her scarf and tries to suffocate Makoto, but she couldn't do it and ends up sobbing.
Makoto, Kotonoha and Sekai all have sex together and the next day they go up to the roof to have sex. After Makoto decides to have sex with Kotonoha first Sekai runs away. Kotonoha sends Sekai a messege that Makoto and Kotonoha are going to spend the entire day having sex and asks Sekai if she's joining them. Sekai comes a little late and Kotonoha asks Makoto to pretend he hates Sekai just for now while they're having sex. Makoto then makes many comments that demeans Sekai all the while not knowing Sekai is hearing him. Sekai not knowing that Makoto was pretending, quits school, leaves her home and simply ceases to be there. 6 months later on the beach Kotonoha and Makoto talk about having sex after not doing it for a while. Kotonoha then leaves Makoto alone to prepare. Then while Makoto is alone Sekai stabs Makoto, revealed to be farther along than Kotonoha. Makoto is relieved to find Sekai is okay. Sekai then runs away horrified at what she's done. Makoto then tries to get home, leaving a blood trail while mumbling to himself. He then collapses and says that he loved Sekai after all.
In a second very different route Makoto practices on Sekai on her offer and has unprotected sex with her numerous times before the school festival (like the previous route). But afterwards Makoto dates Kotonoha and Sekai dates Taisuke. Three months later Sekai finds herself pregnant and believes it's Makoto's. Makoto and Sekai break up with their significant others and start dating and Sekai reveals her pregnancy. Sekai then collapses at school and is taken to a hospital only to find out she's been two months pregnant, making Makoto much less likely to be the father than Taisuke. He's then informed of this by Kotonoha. Makoto then argues with Sekai that ultimately ends with her quiting school, leaving her home and simply ceasing to be there. The rest of the ending plays the same as the previous route but since Makoto says "That baby is mine, right?" he believes that the baby is truly his and not Taisuke's.
Makoto realises his feeling for Sekai early and confesses to her. During the school festival Kotonoha invites him into the break room to have sex with him. This is recorded (In the HQ release its recorded by Roka Kitsuregawa, Ruka Imagawa, Natsuki Hosokawa and Mugi Hatakeyama from Cross Days making a cameo) and then the recorders show it to all the girls who were captured in the video. Sekai by coincidence is invited to it by Nanami (who didn't know what it was). After Sekai finds out and breaks up with Makoto. Makoto then finds Sekai at a train station and admits he's swayed easily but he'll love Sekai forever and they share an embrace.
Sekai and Makoto becomes a couple and tells Kotonoha who takes it very badly. Kotonoha begs Makoto to date her again in Makoto's apartment but fails. Kotonoha tells them that they will never be happy. As Sekai and Makoto are leaving the apartment Kotonoha's cellphone shatters on the floor. They then witness Kotonoha throwing herself over the ledge of the apartment landing head first on the floor to her death. Just before she hits the ground Makoto and Sekai see how her eyes have transformed completely void of life. Sekai and Makoto inevitably break up because of being reminded of this. A year later Makoto visits Kotonoha's grave having finished high school and working with his mother as a nurse. He narrates because of being reminded of how Kotonoha looked in her final moments Sekai and he couldn't keep seeing each other and inevitably break up. As predicted by Kotonoha's last words, she will keep loving him and he and Sekai will never be happy together, forever.
In the LxH version, when Makoto is visiting Kotonoha's grave, Sekai comes as well. Both haven't met each other since the incident, and they ask each other about their recent lives. Makoto as usual answers that he's working as a nurse, while Sekai mentions that she got married but is soon to be divorced (She is still wearing a wedding ring). At the same time, Makoto tells her that he got engaged. On the other hand, Sekai is holding a bucket of water and she dumps the water in front of Kotonoha's grave. Makoto is curious why she's doing that and Sekai answers that whenever she visits Kotonoha she sees an unhappy soul crawling around her, hence she spills the water in hopes that the soul would be gone. Later on, Sekai leaves the graveyard, while Makoto looks up into the sky and finds out it is going to rain, indicating that he regrets for his past behaviorss.
Pushed Too Far (HQ Version Only) Edit
The route to this plays exactly the same as the second route in To My Children ending above, except that when Makoto is informed of Sekai's pregnancy duration from Kotonoha, he tries to ignore it during school. During the evening, Sekai asks Makoto on the phone to come with her to the hospital to see the obstretrician. Makoto finally breaks and tells her that the baby is not his and he's not sure he can continue loving her since she's bearing Taisuke's child. Sekai then immediately deduces Kotonoha is manipulating Makoto and then the next day while Makoto is confessing his love to Kotonoha, she pushes her into an oncoming train. Makoto tries to pull her back, but is too late. The train hits Kotonoha and Makoto is left screaming with Kotonoha's severed arm in his hand while Sekai laughs maniacally about how this is all Kotonoha's fault.
Lamplight (LxH Version Only)Edit
Nearly exactly the same as the Eternally ending but after Sekai and Makoto share an embrace the game ends without anything more. It's obviously implied Kotonoha did not commit suicide.
With Honest Feelings (With Honesty in HQ release)Edit
Makoto keeps seeing Kotonoha and Kotonoha plans to spend Christmas Eve with Makoto in a hotel room. Sekai, after spending almost the entire day at the infirmary, waits for a train when she realizes she hasn't eaten anything that day. She then realizes she promised to make Makoto a sandwich long ago and cries because she can never do it now that Makoto's spending Christmas Eve with Kotonoha in a very expensive hotel room. To her surprise, Makoto appears taking a bite of her sandwich. He reveals he wanted to follow his feeling and they have lead him to Sekai and asks her to love him back. Sekai throws the sandwich away and hugs Makoto, screaming that she loves him.
In a different route, Makoto realizes his feelings for Sekai and they both decide to break up with their significant others (Sekai's being Taisuke). Sekai successfully breaks up with Taisuke, but Makoto fails with Kotonoha thinking he was joking. Kotonoha turns to Sekai for advice, but Sekai tells her she's going out with Makoto. Kotonoha then tells Sekai she intends to spend Christmas Eve with him and whoever Makoto goes out with will be his girlfriend. Sekai then tells her she will be waiting for him at the train station were they first kissed on Christmas Eve. Makoto comes and the ending scene occur.
Kotonoha, trying to win Makoto back, comes over to his apartment and takes pictures of Makoto sucking on her nipples and shows them to Sekai. She then asks Makoto to date her if she can convince Sekai to back off. After she succeeds, Makoto interrogates her about what she's done and ultimately breaks his promise and goes to Sekai's apartment. Sekai, still very upset, tells Makoto to go away. A while later, Sekai's mother comes home and wakes up Sekai to have Bavarois with her. She then reveals to Sekai if she should deliver some Bavarois to Makoto or if she wants seconds. After a talk with her mother, Sekai comes out to embrace Makoto, while Makoto apologizes for being easily swayed. Then Sekai asks if Makoto likes Bavarois (This Bavarois is completely unrelated to the Bavarois Makoto can make for Sekai).
If the route taken involved Makoto sleeping with Setsuna (as opposed to many other possible routes) and getting her pregnant a post ending scene will be shown. In it Setsuna sends Makoto a postcard of her pregnant in front of the Arc de Triomphe. On it it's written "I will be giving birth in Japan, so I'll return around the time when you get this letter. Please think of a name. Setsuna". The doorbell then rings and Setsuna shows up with Sekai and says "I'm the Wife".
- According to the official family tree Makoto has sons with Sekai and Setsuna. This is only ending in original game that fits into this criteria. See this for more information.
Setsuna's Wish (Setsuna's Feelings in HQ release)Edit
Unlike most endings Sekai's mother is chosen to go to Paris instead of Setsuna's mother. Sekai pleads with her mother to stay but is slapped in the face by her. Setsuna then decides to take Makoto off Sekai's hands after she leaves claiming that she's loved her since the entrance ceremony too. She first takes pictures of Makoto and herself pretending to have sex and show it to Sekai then claims that she's really going to do it. Then Setsuna proceeds to (seemingly) have sex with Makoto with Sekai hearing them on the phone. Sekai unable to listen anymore begs Makoto to stop and promises to not leave him. After that it's revealed the whole thing was a plan devised by Setsuna. She then leaves for Paris with her mother having successfuly put Sekai and Makoto together.

Pushed into a corner Makoto declines to make a decision. A few days later Sekai tells Makoto that she'll be waiting for him at her place. During the evening Sekai is out in the night waiting for Makoto when Setsuna comes. After a little chat it's revealed Makoto had come a while ago and couldn't face Sekai and Setsuna has dragged him over. They share an embrace while Setsuna walks away having successfully brought the two together. In a post ending scene Makoto and Sekai are at the beach and Sekai says she has to take a lot of pictures to make lots of memories.
Makoto and Kotonoha continue to date but Makoto seemingly becomes bored with the relationship. To spice things up Kotonoha spends exorbinant amount of money on a hotel room to spend Christmas Eve with him. They spend the night at the hotel room resembling a traditional happily ever after ending.
Carnal Desire (Lust in HQ release)Edit
Kotonoha's equivalent ending of Bavarois instead of going after Sekai Makoto keeps his promise to date Kotonoha if she gets Sekai to back off from Makoto. Like the Bavarois ending a post ending scene can show Setsuna pregnant (except the only difference being Kotonoha is chosen instead of Sekai).
Makoto makes it clear he likes Sekai. Because of this, Nanami and the other girls start bullying Kotonoha to keep her away from Makoto for Sekai.

Makoto searches for Kotonoha and finds her right when she's cornered and about to be slapped by Natsumi. Makoto grabs Natsumi's hand and then lectures them for being bullies. The game ends with Makoto and Kotonoha having lunch and kissing.
