School Days Visual Novel EndingsEdit
Bloody Conclusion (Bloody End in HQ release)EditDepending on the route Makoto breaks up with Kotonoha or simply starts ignoring her to see Sekai. Kotonoha desperately tries to win back Makoto but Nanami orchestrates many bullying acts on her to keep her away from Makoto. Kotonoha then goes to Makoto's apartment but is greeted by his mother and is invited to wait for him inside. Makoto and Sekai come home and not knowing she's there proceed to have sex. Hearing it pushes Kotonoha over the edge and makes her go into Yandere mode. 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 Makoto shocked . It's implied Sekai died.
Cold Scarf (LxH Extension)Edit
In the LxH version, after Kotonoha's killed Sekai, Makoto's frozen from shock while Nanami and Hikari, having seen what happened are in panic. Kotonoha, still insane 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 she starts crying and stops, presumably still being in love with Makoto.
To My Children (To My Child in HQ release)EditMakoto ends up with Kotonoha, with Sekai disappearing because of his poorly handled actions. 6 months after Sekai's disappearance, Makoto and Kotonoha are on the beach and talks about their life and future plans (which includes having a baby and getting maried) and Sekai. Kotonoha then says they should have sex, because with her being pregnant they haven't done it in a while. She goes back to get ready while Makoto stays a bit longer. Right as he's wondering where Sekai is she stabs him. Makoto is surprised to see Sekai carrying his baby and is glad to see Sekai okay. Sekai horrified at what she's done runs away and Makoto decides to go home, paying barely any attention to a fatal wound in his gut, is rather worried Kotonoha will get jealous. He dies while walking home and his final thought to himself is he really did love Sekai.
End of the Folly (LxH Extension)Edit
Meanwhile however Kotonoha takes it very badly but declares that he and Sekai will never be happy together. Makoto and Sekai are talking about Kotonoha when she throws herself off a building, which is seen in full view to both of them. Having witnessed Kotonoha commit suicide, Makoto and Sekai are unable to be together because of their guilt and break up. A while later Makoto visits Kotonoha's grave and reminisces about past events and how, as predicted by Kotonoha's last words, he would never be happy with Sekai.
Blue Smile (LxH Extension)Edit
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, suffered a misscarriage and is soon to be divorced. At the same time, Makoto hides his ring finger to hide the fact that he's engaged. Sekai is holding a bucket of water and then leaves and Makoto asks if she's not going to dump the water but Sekai says the tomb is smiling, albeit unpleasently. Sekai then says goodbye and that he weather forecast said it would rain but it's fine, Makoto looks up to find there's no rain and the game ends.
Pushed Too Far (HQ Version Only) EditDuring Makoto's initial attempts to make sexual advances on Kotonoha, Sekai offers to let Makoto train on her and they have sex. They continue to have unprotected sex constantly with Makoto still dating Kotonoha. During the school festival Makoto finally has sex with Kotonoha while Sekai goes on to date Taisuke. She's very unhappy in the relationship and when all 4 of them go shopping Taisuke asks Makoto to find out what Sekai would like as a present. Sekai says she wants something that can't be bought which is Makoto and then he decides he loves Sekai and embraces her. Just a while later Sekai goes home only to throw up and confesses to her mother that she's pregnant and doesn't know who the father is. She reveals her pregnancy to Makoto and says he has to be the father because they had sex so many times but a visit to an obstetrician reveals she's only 2 months pregnant, which makes it highly unlikely the baby is Makoto's. He breaks up with her over this and then Sekai goes into Yandere mode. She pushes Kotonoha in front of a train to kill her since she's the one that revealed her pregnancy duration to Makoto, and then laughs maniacally about how this is all Kotonoha's fault.
Starting from the Price of Betrayal episode, the divergence point with To My Children is whether Makoto tells Sekai his doubts about the child's father at school, or if he remains silent and tells her over the phone later that night.
Innocent Evening Sun (LxH Version Only)EditWhile similiar to the ending above this ending came before Pushed Too Far. Also apart from Sekai pushing Kotonoha onto the train tracks the circumstances are different from Pushed Too Far, happenning earlier because the characters are wearing their school uniforms without coats and Sekai doesn't push with as much force because Kotonoha only falls halfway over the edge, not fly over the train tracks. Makoto is also further away from Kotonoha and is able to see Sekai pushing her much sooner and reacts to it faster.
Makoto and Kotonoha are waiting for the train when Makoto gets a text from Sekai but it's only used as a distraction to push Kotonoha onto the tracks. Makoto shoves Sekai and grabs Kotonoha and they all fall over the ledge and Sekai's phone drops further into the tracks, with Makoto holding onto Kotonoha around her waist. Makoto tries to pull Kotonoha while Sekai tries to reach for her phone. The train comes and Sekai and Kotonoha are both hit, with Makoto looking horrified.
Twisted Hair(LxH Version Only)EditSlightly different from the ending above while being pulled by Makoto Kotonoha first grabs Sekai by her hair, at first glance intending to pull her up but while being pulled by Makoto she uses her as leverage to get up, pushing Sekai down further. The train comes and Sekai looks at the train as it hits her.
News Story (LxH Version Only)EditThis ending mostly serves as the "good" alternative to Bloody End. Sekai and Makoto are a couple and are walking down the street with Hikari and Nanami. They then come across a news broadcast revealing that a girl has been found murdered in an alleyway. Nanami and Hikari claim it might be Kotonoha because she's been absent from school for a while. The two then ask Sekai and Makoto if they have heard from Kotonoha but they suspiciously say no, hinting they probably killed her.
Lamplight (LxH Version Only)Edit
Makoto and Sekai meet at the train station and chat for a while when Kotonoha comes. Kotonoha wants to talk to Sekai and Makoto leaves them alone. Kotonoha becomes more and more aggressive with Sekai and when Makoto turns around Sekai's pushed into the tracks. Kotonoha in her rage accidently pushed Sekai with significant force. Makoto runs over and helps her get up and after Sekai gets up and while she's helping Makoto get back up it's too late and her shocked face is shown fully in the frame, Makoto getting hit by the train.
Unknown (LxH Version Only)Edit
Unknown (LxH Version Only)Edit
With Honest Feelings (With Honesty in HQ release)EditMakoto continues to date Kotonoha with virtually no bumps in the road. Sekai, having set up the couple together is still in love with Makoto and succumbs deeper into depression and starts to skip school spending days crying in her room. On Christmas Eve Youko, worried that Sekai won't have enough attendance days forces her to go to school. During class she passes out and Nanami tells Makoto to take her to the infirmary, since she believes he's the reason for Sekai's depression. Sekai asks Makoto to hold her hand until she falls asleep and he does. Meanwhile Kotonoha's made plans to spend christmas eve with Makoto in a very, very luxurious hotel room. Sekai wakes up at the infirmary and then goes home. Whilst waiting for the train she realizes she hasn't eaten all day and starts eating a sandwich. She starts crying about how he promised to make Makoto sandwiches, and that she wanted him to try it. To her surprise Makoto comes out and takes a bite of her sandwich and confesses his love to her and asks her to love him in return. She throws away the sandwich and embraces Makoto.
I'm The Wife (I'm His Wife in HQ Release, Watermelon in LxH release, Setsuna Ending)EditIf 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)EditMakoto and Sekai are together with Kotonoha out of the way since she's dating Taisuke but Sekai's mother is chosen to go to Paris instead of Setsuna's mother.

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 after Sekai convinces her mother to stay, having successfuly put Sekai and Makoto together.
Binding Thoughts (Love Fulfilled in HQ release)EditMakoto dumps Kotonoha because his feelings for Sekai emerge, but Sekai accuses him of cheating on her with Otome in class with everyone looking.

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.
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).
And With Kotonoha (With Kotonoha in HQ release)Edit
Kotonoha's equivalent version of Sekai's ending Binding Thoughts, except in this case Kotonoha asks to come over to Makoto's place and Makoto, having chosen Kotonoha is waiting for her and they have sex.

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.
