I wonder if the teacher's gonna take down a few with him when he goes...(hope so).

Mei's looking so cute now. I'm really starting to like her most. Sakakibara's kinda slow, and I don't know about everyone else yet. The librarian's not bad. I'm glad we got the backstory. ^^

Interesting episode. Really think anything pointing to Kouichi being the one that shouldn't be there is a misdirection. It's happened every year for 26 years and, apparently, from the start of the year. Why would this year be because someone just randomly transferred in? Then again the numbers were correct before he showed up? So he could be it or it could be something else. Don't know yet.

As for the ignoring thing. It sucks but I'm of two minds about it now. It's obviously not fool proof but if it saves lives then it's not totally a bad thing. On the other hand acting like someone doesn't exist is a horrible thing I wouldn't want to wish on anyone. I would take up the role myself, at least I hope I could, but I'd never want to force it on to someone else.

Anyway, really starting to enjoy the series. The first three episodes were little short of a uninteresting drag but four, five, and six have been really good and only getting better. Looking forward to the next one.

Kouichi's conversation on the phone with his father is eating me up. The content and the fact that it dropped.

i think i just found my new forum Gif. I liked the relationship progression with the two but it seems a little too fast and nice im thinking foreshadowing.

So...It doesn't make any sense to me.
The librarian guy told to Kouchi and Mei that those who are living in this town - Yomiyama - are in risk of being killed by the curse and; therefore, by moving away will make them safe. He even gave the cell phone as the example. So why the hell are they doing in this town? Just move to another town instead of picking up a random guy and treat him as non-existing, which doesn't always work - 50/50.

Back to the episode 1 the scene in the hospital. The red haired girl was trying to figure out whether Kouchi was dead or not by giving the handshake? At the same time, they told us that the "dead" has a human body. What? I don't get it.

Among all the things, what surprised me the most is that Misaki is a BOY! :O That's just too unexpected.

I have a bad feeling about the teacher. What I mean by that is - what ever happens, it's probably going to be stupid.
If he's just going to kill himself - why the hell do it at school and with a knife of all things.
If he just randomly starts killing his students - wth?
Whenever you correct someone's grammar just remember that nobody likes you.

A "dead" person has "cold" hands. I think Izumi said this in the episode.

It's a little strange, I know, but I suppose a "dead" person can have a physical form or body. Sort of like a zombie.

If so, why doesn't she give the handshake to the whole class so that find out that dead one? I know it won't work. I just don't get her point doing so in the hospital. Also, they highlighted that moment which at the end is nonsense.

You expect everyone in the class and their family to just pick up and leave town? Easier said then done. The families often times don't even find out till after the fact and who is just going to pick up and move at the world of a 9th grader, if they even talked about it. Not sure they actually can. There's other things like ties to where you live and stuff involved as well. A lot of people are born, live, and die in the same area. It's not really that strange. Some people during disasters refuse to leave their homes even if they know it will cost them their lives.

As for the handshake, don't know, but from what was said I guess she at least expected that the dead person would be cold to the touch. She said he wasn't, right? So, she figured he was fine.

Despite the episode being excellent and I can’t deny the MOE of Mei in the following,

Among the many of her in the spoiler
of that part, it was all a hoax to of Kouichi’s imagination. Moreover I feel like it tried to be too much Higurashi and I noticed some people mentioning this. The reason is simple:Higurashi was the only anime IMO to ever succeed horror with MOE ever! I mean it! Ever! There was not any other serious horror that MOE worked in it IMO. The atmosphere from the start was essentially with Mei here good and for a moment Mei was getting scared here. However it became quickly nice with just seeing her by the window. Looks to me like another doll here makes her appearance. I did like how they show Mei's place here. The night and shadows are nice with vines gripping it. I liked seeing Mei in her room with Kouichi. She looks nice. There were some very excellent up close face shot of Mei in the spoiler
including the one with her other eye.
It looks really nice. I did like that Kouichi and Mei are being shown to talk together here. The best part of that is that it develops.

About Mei/Kouichi, essentially a huge boost in romance. From the
walking around at night here to Kouichi saying something as personal as his mother dying at birth was quite surprising of the amount of trust he shows. I did like seeing him here of his expression while another good show of Mei’s face here in comparison to Kouichi. It kind of showed her feelings more. The Parc incident in the spoiler
Showed some more of Mei’s charms from her expressions. It also shows she is not as weak as one might think if she can those moves on the bars. As Mei starts to go the stairs near the water, the fact that Kouichi marvels at her eye and was like this here, proves none other than a romantic development. Mei still looked super nice with her face showing both eyes. In thee end of that part the hand shake in the spoiler
Was nice to show for a cooperation of surviving together. It was hilarious that he blushed here and there of his imagination of dancing with Mei. Shows he really is starting to develop a crush on Mei.

Mei sitting at her desk looking at the window was nice. I got to admit that the I loved a lot the eating part in the spoiler
particularly how MOE it made Mei when she was eating and chewing. There was this cute side to her.
While the light shinning on them here does make me allude they are protected by God? Surely it must meant they are protected but then I wonder of why them only. It was nice to see show a cheered up face here that reminded of Mei when she was drawing earlier on. It was obvious that what follows is further on development of Mei x Kouichi. Now it irreversible with the time spent of them skipping classes, to relax near the canal here whom had a nice part of Mei splashing water around very MOE, to joining around on the rooftop, walking home more on a regular basis, to talking more at school (that part needs to be redone) and to the class ignoring them well over a month of period. Among all those flashes I liked mostly the one in the spoiler
it features a nice setup with the sun and Mei x Kouichi.

I still have to admit I am quite surprised and pleased of the Mei’s smiles in the spoiler
because it’s very rare for Mei to smile like that.
Very rare indeed. From the looks of the people here and there that they consider Mei as a senpai and like her. However it looks like Mochizuki’s painting here and Mochizuki himself ruined the meeting in the club. I do respect Mei for that painting in the spoiler
must be of her mother and her hand looks so nice and pale. Yet so smooth. I like that in girls. It was nice to see that Kouichi at first was calm but as soon as Mei comes he does blush here yet becomes more happy here, however he does get more nervous here as Mei get closer to him. Which all suggests more romantic feelings from him developing. Finally I liked how Mei reacted to Kouichi’s feelings and of her surprise during the library scene with Chibiki in the spoiler
it showed more of Mei’s feelings.

About Mei’s mother, I am surprised not many mention of Mei’s mother. She is one hot MILF in the following,

Along with the variations that are shown of her in the spoiler
I must say that it was a nice success of adapting her into the anime. Instead of being gloomy and all, she is more sexy instead. Not sure if it’s a good thing or bad but it sure looks nice. I liked Kouichi’s face here towards his reaction to her and of his first reaction to her but I am asking myself WTF is in her hands here. It does not look like a lot but it seems suspicious.

Theory Time!


Somethings to think about in the list:
  • From the looks of Kouichi’s conversation with his father in the spoiler
    one should notice that the Thing was already in his place and is most likely responsible for stopping the conversation of Kouichi with his father. This is most likely due that it does not want to know that Kouichi has most likely lived here before.

  • Izumi’s hand in the spoiler
    speaks of coldness. I am attributing based on this that people are having major vitality sucking. Sometimes it can be attributed to major spiritual presence but in case of Izumi I doubt it. All that have cold hands most likely are having part of their lives sucked out before being killed. The feast of the dead so to speak. An appetizer at most.

  • Mochizuki from the looks of the spoiler
    might die fast. He is totally not ignoring Kouichi. In fact in the club he had to make everyone go with him. Most likely to tell them of Kouichi. Well that to me looks like he will die less he ignores Kouichi more.

  • Chibiki’s part 1 in the spoiler
    tells of fear and guilt. Now I wonder his involvement in all this but his explanation of who is affected does not seem to include friends of the student at all. Only its family influence of 2 degrees. So WTF is up with friends being even affected? That makes no sense if the thing targets them. However his feelings clearly indicate in the rain his sadness and regret. So what involvement did he have in this whole affair.

    Part 2 gets better in the spoiler
    according to him Mami died in 1996 while her name was in 1993. So I assume she was being ignored for a while but then again why did she live for so long before dying 3 years later? I assume she was chosen for that long and had to have its name altered by the Thing. It shows clearly that she only appeared for being chosen after she dies when the cycle is finished. With the fact that memories are altered magically if not paranormally this whole Thing is freaking dangerous. That it can make one forget of its dearest one after they die no matter who it is makes it scary. Moreover that means of a powerful influence. At the end he also mentions of something from Kouichi’s mother that sounds not clear. Looks like it’s vital. Notice that the shadow that has seems to fade away with the sun's light shining on him. I think it has a meaning.

  • Finally Reiko in the spoiler
    is regretting something and freaking out. I may know what it is but it’s a spoiler. However what is interesting is to note the bird. High suspicions that it’s possessed by Kouichi’s mother. Why else would it react like that to Reiko? I also know why but it should be revealed by next episode.


About thee end, it’s obvious that the teacher here does not looks stable at all. In fact he looks distressed here. So next episode I think he is going to mass go nuts.

About the preview, oops too late! According to the spoiler
he is going to go wild. I guess killing himself in front of the class is my guess. Poor girl! She looks freaked out a lot. Moreover Mikami here looks in getting freaked more than before. I am also looking forward to those red scenes in the spoiler
Mei looks nice in them. As for Chibiki here, looks like he angry or serious of something. Suffice to say looking forward to it. Getting closer to the manga part I was stuck at in English, however it’s far from the RAW part I am at.

BTW 2 GIFs to share of insane teacher and poor girl going crazy in the spoiler
enjoy the insanity to ensue.

Because of some idiots on gogoanime I now know everything. I know who's going to die, who is ghost and it is so sad....

So I am dropping this show since all suspense that was built by now is gone. And It was just getting interesting.... I really hope the ending won't be like I read it will be...

Anyway I am so angry and mad that I will spoil you (yes everyone here)
