I wonder if things happen every year since "26 years ago"... including, maybe, his mother and... was it older sister?... dying... and the reason why they want him to wait until the next month is that, every month, if they aren't careful, someone dies and sorta continues the tradition of an accidental, tragic death.
I am so gonna enjoy watching this whole series over and over because they are so many flashbacks and things which seems important but I won't know until they reveal more of the story....
witchhuntress said: As someone who read the manga, it isn't like Final Destination at all. Lol How many people have been conditioned as to think that when unexpected deaths happen, it's that kind of ordered?
No, don't let the order of appearances in the ED fool you. Honestly =.=
Jeez, stop spoiling the fun of those who have not read the manga! What's wrong with people creating their own theories on the show? That is part of the fun of mystery stories after all! And if you really need to talk about it, at least use the spoiler tag!
Anyway, I don't find this show boring. So far is pretty much what I was expecting.
The pace of this show is damn slow but it's awesome nonetheless!
Unfortunately I knew she was going to die and how she was going to die thanks to looking up info on the novel on wikipedia the other day. I also know who dies next but not how as a stopped reading that friggin' wikipedia entry once it clicked that I was ruining an awesome series for myself in doing so!
Holy shit. It was a great decision to actually watch this at night, instead of leaving for tomorrow.
Rather slow paced episode, creepy atmosphere all around was great. But that ending, i couldn't believe it at first. (And it wasn't even completely censored! o/) Definitely loving this show as of now.
My theory goes like this, they all see Misaki (like proved by the glassess guy and his friend when Misaki was on the roof and Kouchi ran to see her) but refuse to believe in her thinking that she will eventually dissapear if they ignore her long enough. I guess that'd be current students trying to repair their ancestors mistake of believing Misaki was alive after her death.
I'm not sure why they wouldn't want to tell Kouichi the story though, could as well just tell him everything and order to ignore Misaki... but i guess that'd be too simple and ruin the story. It'd be lame if all this turned out to be a device to let plot go on without any explaination though.
There's also Misaki, why would she lie about Misaki being her cousin? Maybe she really was her cousin and Misaki Mei is alive and people are aftaid of her after 26-years ago story so they ignore her?
Man, i really got into this, next ep plox.
Turn off every light in your home, and watch it when you are alone.Amazing effect xD
Anyway, this episode was pure win.I LOVED atmosphere.I LOVED Misaki.
But why megane-girl was so surprised when she saw Kouichi at the end? he is suppose to be the one that sees her, right? and the scene when these 2 guys were warning him on the roof.Im so curious what is going on.
Amazing how she managed to roll down the stairs instead of falling on her butt. She is really talented in falling downstairs. Kinda looked unrealistic, but I may be wrong. Usually when people miss a stair they fall on their ass. They only roll down when they trip, and her foot didn't trip. She missed a stair and rolled down. Still a great episode.
Oh SHIT! Did not see that coming...and I believe that theory with a person seeing Mei before death might be correct, with Sakibara, it might be that he has already been predicted to die, but it just takes much longer to die for him...
-forever sad was hoping my prediction was wrong were it wouldn't be base around the deaths of class 3 *still hope i am* like others had said that they think people die right before they see mei,but i don't care how *unrealistic* it was i'm still weak to watching those kind of things but what makes it worst is that it's PA work's art so it looks really detail and brutal...also didn't help that i was watching this in the dark.
and my only thought when i saw the teacher react to her death was * Sh** We lost another one already!*
Stupid girl, if you didn't run like such an idiot you wouldn't fall and get impaled through the throat by your damn umbrella.
Protagonist is constantly asking what the story is and of course every time he gets interrupted in the middle of learning about it. This build up is getting more annoying than exciting really. Maybe its just because I'm not feeling scared at all.
Best show of 2012 right here. Nope, can't argue with me. Nothing will touch this. THIS is how you make a show. Take notes, directors. This is the only show that I literally cannot wait for the new episodes to come out of.
Watching it in the brand new 1080p Crunchyroll offers on a 42" HDTV was LEGIT.
Nice reading choice there, Sakakibara. H.P. Lovecraft... couldn't find a more fitting author.

I'm surprised how many users don't seem to like this show or even call it comedy. This series has such fantastic atmosphere and direction for horror. Watching it in the dark with my headphones, the music and sound really works wonderfully. I was shocked by the ending, I thought this series would have a very slow build-up.
...So it was just a false eye? Kinda of a weak reveal, hopefully it'll have some point to the anime. And oblivious as the main character is about everything, that ending is exactly what this anime needed, built up or whatever, it's hard to not want to beat the obvious into the main character with a baseball bat after almost three episodes of the other characters practibly shouting at him something fucked up here.
Still decent enough to watch, and might end up good (Instead of being meh or decent).
"The R1 Anime business is a cruel and shallow financial trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."
