Cross Days, the third in the release order of the "Days" series (in 2010, following the 2006 Summer Days and preceding the 2012 Shiny Days), is a parallel story to School Days where the main character is second semester male freshman: Yuuki Ashikaga. Yuuki witnesses key parts in the School Days plotline, such as Sekai kissing Makoto.

In some routes Yuuki is also a cross-dresser, as seen in the title picture.

This story also features Kyouichi Kasannoin, the first time he makes an appearance, as a main character. This game also features a further look at the mental state of the basketball team, further increasing the awareness of the reasoning behind some actions of the characters in the original plot line.

GameplayEdit

Like it's prequel visual novels, Cross Days requires extremely minimal gameplay. At predetermined intervals the game presents the player with one or two choices to make, or the player can choose to not make a choice. These choices change the course of the story and takes the player to one of the many endings.

Like it's predecessor and unlike traditional visual novels that consist of the protagonist talking to static images of characters, Cross Days is unusual in that it incorporates motion and voice, making it similiar to an anime series. The player is initially given the ability to pause, skip to the next part, return to the beginning of the current part and return to the beginning of a previous part. The player can also turn on the ability to skip to the next choice, although if the player hasn't viewed a specific part the player will be stopped at those. After the player has viewed a specific part the abliity to fast forward becomes available. Progress can be saved at anytime in up to 100 slots.

PlotEdit

The game is a parallel to School Days, unlike Summer Days which is a spin-off of the original story.

Yuuki has feelings for Roka Kitsuregawa, a member of the girls' basketball club. However, due to a misunderstanding Roka thinks he is going out with Hikari Kuroda. Meanwhile, Yuuki develops a friendship with Kotonoha Katsura, who frequently visits the school library where Yuuki works as a library comittee member.

In an effort to make Yuuki jealous and draw him away from Hikari, Roka claims to be dating Makoto Itou. However, Yuuki knows Makoto is Kotonoha's boyfriend, and has also seen Makoto kissing a third girl (Sekai Saionji). The story follows Yuuki's attempts to clear up the misunderstandings with Roka and repair Kotonoha's relationship with Makoto.

Depending on the player's choices many endings can be reached, both good and bad.

MediaEdit

MangaEdit

Based on the story of the game, Cross Days was published into a manga, written by Yoko Kagura and illustrated by Homare Sakazuki. 0verflow announced on April 4, 2010
that it would make its serialization debut in Monthly Comp Ace on April 26. The series was circulated until August 2010,[12] published by Kadokawa Shoten into a
first and second volume, released November 26, 2010 and June 25, 2011, respectively.

The manga follows a radically different plot from the game, focusing on Yuuki's efforts to "save" Kotonoha and Roka from Makoto by revealing to them his evil true nature. To do so, he crossdresses and seduces Makoto as "Yuu". In contrast with the game, in this storyline Makoto is in a stable three-way relationship with Kotonoha and Sekai.
