They softnened you up with Akazawa fanservice and chopped you up motorboat style at the end.

Unfortunately I had already read a spoiler about someone dying because of swimming to far to get an inflatable object, but I didn't expect it to turn out like this. This has been maybe even the creepiest death yet. I'm thinking this was just 'coincidence' and didn't have to do anything with the curse.
Still weird there's even not a mention about the funerals, except for the ones from 15 years ago as that guy said.

Next ep the mysterious mansion, and zombie-Yukari?!

This has got to be one of the most gloomy beach scene I've seen. The music playing just didn't match them having fun and you just know something bad was bound to happen. Ouch... he just got ripped apart.

Well even if the mood wasn't great I still laughed a few times, mostly thanks to Izumi. Izumi in a swimsuit, I like it. She's my favorite character now that she has lighten up so much and always thought she looked great.

Preview - what the hell, is that girl who died from the umbrella back!?? Hmm a tape record, wonder if thats the hint the guy left behind.

It's good how the beach episode avoided becoming a blatant, total fanservice fest. It's also not so bad to see the characters enjoying themselves once in a while. Everything was surprisingly smooth sailing... until someone died horribly at the end.

So much for that short psychological breather for them, it seems there may be no safe place anymore. The character who just died was also someone I've never really noticed before this episode.

LOL beach episode, where you been? :D

Anyways, I really enjoyed this episode. It was very peaceful excluding the ending. Didn't even know who the dude was so it wasn't too bad! Knew the instant the ball landed in the water something bad was going to happen though.

Im willing to bet the class from 15 years ago sacrificed someone at the shrine to stop the killings making them eventually lose there memories of that day because of its atrocity.

Dam i thought they would be safe after they left the town but in the end someone still died. Still the ball went REALLY deep personally i dont think he should have gone and take it . Also do they not have those float things that block the sea so you do not swim so deep and ships cannot come inside there? Maybe its just my country but that is really dangerous. Ouch... poor guy

Oh the moeness of Mei being scared of octopus.

My thought process for the last minutes:

  • Oh, a storm, here we go.
  • It's a goddamn ball, and here's a storm that's obviously not natural, why are you fucking going into the sea?
  • Okay, he drowns, but it wouldn't be Another without gore. Some shark must be coming up.
  • Oh well, a motorboat will do just fine

And yeah, preview is epic.

All my thoughts and feelings, you have described them.

Once the mofo got in the water, I knew he was gonna die.

5/5. First for the fanservice, second for the awesomeness.

Preview: they're finding something with Tibiko, someone will be killed by a lightning, Misaki' in blood.

Could it be, that only person is being responcible for all this deaths? Maybe.

I knew the boat was going to be involved after we first saw it in the background.

Overall pretty good episode. It was nice to have them having fun without the fear of death, kind of sad ending.

Brutal... the instant you saw the boat was just like oh no I don't like where this is going, next thing you know he is just like a manatee and meets his demise to the rudder of a boat.

I like how they play with our nerves. It makes you think at the second the wind blows on the beach and sends the baloon in the sea that someone is gonna die.
Then, it seems it was just a joke/false alert... Especially since they aren't suppose to die outside the city. But wait, he dies anyway. Lol

Good episode nonetheless, it was quite refreshing.

Misaki Mei was so cute in this episode. I was totally focused on her. Of course, the beach ball flying towards the sea was an obvious death scene in-the-making. And I agree with the others, I don't even know the name of the person who died, but I knew him by face.

Anyways, the preview was awesome. The title was win. And i didn't notice Yukari in the preview, but I hope she does make an appearance. XD

Okay, am I the only one who was HORRIBLY disturbed by the deaths in this and the last episode? How can you people be so calm? It was sickening.. I don't know how they can just seem to forget about it in a day.

That aside, Mei AND Yuuya were both adorable in this episode. I ship Kouichi x Yuuya most, I think.

I skipped almost the entire episode simply because I didn't care about the fan service and that mini romance between Kouichi and Misaki. This is supposed to be horror/thriller, not some romantic story... Last 2 minutes were great because THAT'S WHAT I WANT FROM THIS. And next episode looks cool.

Cute ep. (minus the gruesome motor boat shred dude to pieces bit of course though) but still! Cute none the less!! xD

I'm starting to really enjoy Akazawa as a character. Her personality is interesting. :)

In terms of shipping I like both Kouichi x Mei or Kouichi x Akazawa. They both seem pretty beast to me! :D

And the dude who died's car sickness.... I can totally relate. Car sickness sucks. xP

Oh man that truck passing by was so intense. I was tightly gripping the armrests of my computer chair. Will it blow up? Will a tire pop off and fly into their car? I was on the edge of my seat. Then the rest of the episode I was like OH SHIT MAN DON'T. oh ok its nothing. They're outside the city so its ok right? I suddenly started to relax and began to enjoy the episode as a typical beach episode. Then that ominous wind and the beach ball flying out to sea. I have it paused there right now because I don't think I can handle this shit anymore man. My heart can't take anymore. I guess writing my thoughts down here are helping me, giving me a breather and a chance to calm down. So now I'm going to finish the episode and see you on the next episode discussion. Time to suck it up.

Another died. But they are outside of Yomiyama. Isn't that just an ordinary accident not belonged with the curse?

Somehow, even though they were having fun in this episode~ it kinda feel ... sad especially the background tone.

Say something.

Why the hell would he chase after the ball? It was already carried by the waves.

I just knew he was going to die. The tank truck at the beginning was intense, but gratefully nothing happened.

Suddenly boat.

Ever since Final Destination I thought: Hell, where did the death learn how to operate technical devices? Even a surprise attack by a giant squid would have been more plausible.

Good thing they sent in a red shirt this time.

I knew someone was going to die given the foreshadowing: They're going to a beach and also that subtle hint of the sugar cube slowly drowning in coffee and separating into bits. Still, it was pretty gruesome. 5/5 love this show.

One thing to take into account from this episode was that Chibiki was wrong, death centres around where the Another is, not around Yomiyama - so the Another must have been on this trip.

Personally I think
could be the Another.
