Crunchyroll Streams (Nice Boat-less) School Days

Maybe this time we could get a nice moat. Or a nice goat. Or a nice float! Mmm, root beer floats.

I wanted to make a funnier headline, but I just couldn't find a way to do it without spoiling the last episode-- the only one I've watched of School Days, and for some the only one worth watching. But don't worry; Crunchyroll is going to air the entire series.

For those unaware: School Days is notorious for its lead character treating its females rather like dirt, and for having a brutal ending. Shortly prior to the final episode's airing, some school violence occurred, which led to the final episode's being preempted in favor of stock footage of a...”nice boat.”

The show's start date has been offered as nothing more than “this spring,” but I'm pretty sure that we won't be seeing any nice boats on Crunchyroll. Well, we might, but not in place of anime-- although it would be pretty funny if they aired the nice boat footage as well, as an alternative for those who would rather skip the last episode. Right?

Crunchyroll? Not even close. They got rid of all of their illicit content and now are legally licensing series to stream, and doing rather well with it I gather :)

I want to buy this series very bad so streaming it legally is a step in the right direction.

ah yes, the legendary "Nice Boat" episode. BTW the reason it became legendary is not the postpone episode for some generic footage of boat. It was the epilogue of the final episode that made everyone scream genius at the time. Anyone can correct if I'm wrong but, the epilogue was produce in the week that the broadcaster postpone the airing of the final episode.
