The infamous School Days is based on a game where, apparently, the player acts as the conscience of Makoto. Without this conscience, the infamous anime ends badly with him and various others dead. The final anime episode was suddenly pulled for a scene of this boat because a school girl murdered her entire classroom, parents, then started smoking in the rain.

Apparently it's a bit on the cool side...

She'll want to watch those. Wouldn't do to get one of them caught in a winch while trimming the main...as it were.
