THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, now the teacher is going crazy, I thought he had a bomb not a knife. I would imagine that he will kill a student and not himself.

Anyway, was it just me or did Mei looked cuter in this episode? I guess that this is the beginning of a good friendship, I don't think that we can expect much of a romantic side to their relationship here.

She's not that original; plus it's pretty early in 2012.

Anyhow, the storyline is still ridiculously bad as of right now, if they manage to craft it into something not ridiculously illogical and cliche, then great, till then, it's just bad. At least Mei has more character than a certain pink-haired heroine in a certain mediocre series.

Crazy teacher is crazy..
So, just one thing... did I get it right? The original Misaki(the boy with the name of the town) died and everyone decided to pretend he's there. In the graduation picture, he was actually there. So the curse started and every class has to pretend in exchange for Misaki's presence that someone isn't there. And when the person doesn't follow the rules, people die. So... what's with the "dead person"? Nobody's dead, they just pretend someone doesn't exist. Please tell me if I'm wrong... -_-

There is someone dead, and because of that they should pretend like someone else doesn't exist. I don't completely get it as well, it looks like the author has let us believe that Misaki is a ghost and all that stuff (eps 1-4), and then he just destroys it all and says "well, she's a normal girl, but there's someone dead blah blah...".

I could tell as soon as that teacher walked in that he was going to pull a knife out of his bag, and I also suspected he'd kill himself. Now that I think about it, he'll most likely take a couple of students with him, especially judging by the next episode preview.

I can't wait to find out who the dead person is, either! My current prime suspects are Izumi, Teshigawara, and Kazami.

The moment i saw the teacher walking in the hallway, i knew he would do something.
But i thought he was going to pull something like a bazooka gun but smaller xD.

Next episode, COME!

First:
CAN MEI GET ANY CUTER? Seriously, she was rather cute the whole EP already (I love girls who are a bit more silent, 'Nagato-like'), but then during Sakakibara's imagination-dance-sequence, she killed me. Especially since that is among the things I would do if I wanted the class to notice me XD
Also, the scene on the roof was heartwarming. GO SAKAKIBARA! COOK YOUR WAY TO HER HEART!
And when he was in class, looking around, looking at Mei and she looked back, smiling.
Damn, I'm in full shipping mode now XD

Second:
Nobody died O.O Yet
I was wrong, the teacher is no zombie after all, he's a knife nut. I expected something drastic to happen when I saw him shambling through the hallway like that, but I expected a gun or something. But a Knife is very Asakura-approved and good for a killing spree as well. And next episode, there will be blood.

Also, some more BG info about the curse (or not-curse? Dunno, people dieing horribly has something malicious in my books, but I may just be oversensible). Looks like they will try to stop the killing mid-term now. I wonder what they'll come up with.

Mei x Kouchi its pretty cute Mei is just adorable and i really really laugh when they started dancing from no were my favorite part of this episode.

Whoa, superb episode.

The explanation about the continued and it was nicely done, very misterious. I really have to praise the author of this story, he really thought about the details, there's no flaws for the plot so far as I can tell. I only thing I missed is why can't the students leave the town, does someone know?

And the teacher...First I thought he was going to die then I thought he was going to pull a gun and kill someone right away, and then he grabbed a knife... I wonder how he's going to kill someone with it because students may very well escape but at the preview they are shown sat down in their chairs...

And, can someone clarify something for me? Yukari's name appeared on the credits this episode, but I don't remember seeing her. Did she appear?

it was too happy and cheerful with him and Mei. so he already talked to her which is why they couldn't explain it? I was kinda disappointed when the teacher goes nuts but only pulls out a knife?

so yeah if I was in Koichi's spot and everyone was going to ignore me anyway...... I'd so troll everybody. dancing in the middle of class is a start. knock stuff over. write on people. it'd be amusing. grab some random girls .... lol

If I understand correctly, it is no longer about Misaki really. It's like the Class 3 is 'cursed' but it isn't really a curse. Like they say, class 3 is close to death. It only started with Misaki. Now, any student from a graduating (past) Class 3 who died may come back as a student in the current Class 3. So there is one extra student than what there is suppose to be. It's like the 'curse' starts because the dead student is not being acknowledged as existing. So to make up for it, they treat someone of their choosing as someone who doesn't exist. That makes the number of students right.

This year is really messed up because they enrolled a transfer student after class already began. I think Misaki didn't become the one that didn't exist until Kouichi enrolled in the class. Now out of desperation, they are treating Kouichi like he doesn't exist to make up for him speaking to Misaki. Which of course will not work, first of all, it has already started, and secondly, the number is still wrong. I think.

It's very likely that Sakakibara is the dead person. Remember how his dad said he was in Yomiyama 1.5 years ago, then immediately "corrects" himself after a few seconds of static? This hints towards Sakakibara dying in Yomiyama 1.5 years ago, and being back as the deceased student, a situation similar to the one described by the librarian (Mami Asakura originally being a student in 1993, but coming back as the deceased student in 1996).

Awesome episode! Now I wonder who is the dead student that came back? I was thinking it wouldn't be Sakakibara, but after his dad said he was there a year and a half ago I'm suspicious of him.. but that would be too obvious. And the grandparents faces were finally shown.
As soon as I saw the teacher acting strange, I thought he was going to pull out a gun and commit suicide. I wonder if he's going to kill any of the students?
I wish the dancing part wasn't a dream! D: And now I'm officially shipping Mei and Sakakibara. :P
Also the bird scared me when it freaked out.

Wow, alot of things happened in this episode and more plus points for the Mei x Kouichi boat.

The dance scene was hilarious.

We now know what happened to Mei's left eye and the reason for it to be "specially made" by her mother. I hope we see more of Mei's mother, I think she has some useful info.

The moments they spent together (e.g. by the river, rooftop, playground, art club, etc) were heart warming and priceless.

Higurashi-style coming up next week. Darn, 1 more week to wait!

BRB, going to make a time machine to time-leap to Monday.

This seems indeed pretty likely .. but maybe it's too easy.. xD well maybe not cause we're already half way
Teacher going nuts.. it pretty scared me guess some students are gonna die next ep.. (for making up that no one died in this one :']) or the teacher will just commit suicide..
But keep your hands off of Teshigawara :@@

MeixKouichi I support it now. <3

I didn't know that Misaki was a boy actually, I thought that the dead one was a girl.O_o

Great episode!!!! Wonder who's the walking dead in class 3....I am glad that Mei exists and is not just a ghost or Sakaki's imagination.
From the moment i saw that teacher walking down the hall with the big sack in hand i thought he was going to do something crazy. Or at first i thought he was going to drop dead in front of the whole class or kill himself with the knife he took.
Can't wait to see what will happen~

Hmm. A cool-off episode, or at least until the end. Really cleared up a lot of things and now we're to the real action! I see that it's taking the path of 'explaining things then adding crazy plot ideas'

I'm also happy that Mei exists; it takes away the horrible feeling of creepiness. :)
I was so happy when those kids in the art club said hi to her :D

Crazy teacher.. xD And next episode looks brutal.

Huuuuuuuu~! Time to cool off with some Natsume Yuujinchou Shi <3! :D

Teacher has gone psycho! I was already knew the teacher had some sort of weapon when he dropped the bag. But I was only expecting a suicide in front of the students but in the preview, it seems he might take some kids with him.

I love the chemistry between Sakibara and Misaki, I could hear them talking all day without getting bored. Without doubt the smooth BGM contributed a lot to this fact. It's nice to get more answers and as expected there's no guarantee that ignoring Sakakibara will stop the calamities since it's only a desperate attempt to begin with.

Misaki has an interesting outlook on life due to her near-death experience at an young age. So, in her opinion there's no difference between living and being dead. In both cases you are alone. I suppose this explains her calmness opposed to the anxiety of her class mates.

I have to say that Misaki's mother's decision to fabricate a glass eye with a different colour for her daughter was kind of a dick move. I wouldn't be happy when someone forced heterochromia upon me just because it's supposed to be "attractive".

I was astounded to see Misaki getting treated so warmly by the other classes' students. It's obvious that there are other students at the school but up to this moment I wasn't really aware of it consciously.It leaves a bad taste in my mouth that only the students from class 3 had the bad luck to end up in this specific class while all the other ones were spared. It's nice to see that Misaki wasn't fully isolated even before becoming closer with Sakibara, though.

This episode was heartwarming because of the developing relationship between Mei and Kouichi (^_^) No one died this time but in return there was a great suspense at the end. The last scene reminded me the final episode of School Days and I thought that teacher is going to pull somebody's head out of his bag, but it was just a kitchen knife. I think that he will kill only himself because what he said indicated that he's doing this in order to protect all of the students of the class 3.

That dance. I wish that Kouichi and Mei actually did it!

That just made my day. Hahaha.

So the Misaki that died is a guy named Yomiyama.
And our librarian won't be affected by the curse.
I can't believe they ripped Mei's painting.
Well, that is the effect of being non existent. But sure those kouhai didn't know the curse.
I wonder why? Or because they only tell them when they enter third year.

Can't wait for more! (now rewatches the dance scene...)

Another great episode. Looks like shit's about to start getting fucked up next episode--Hinamizawa style.

I'm glad that crazy dancing was just Kouichi's imagination and didn't actually happen. TOTALLY OOC for Mei.

Actually the ep was quite ok, definitely best ep so far.
It was interesting to see those two investigating a bit.
They would sure make a good couple. Misaki is really cute ;-)

The best scene was definitely the daydream. Didn't see that coming, it was hilarious xD

The cliffhanger with the teacher on the contrary was somehow ridiculous. I think he'll just kill himself. Well, at least we get some blood n' splatter to see ;-)
