THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Wow, either the characters drank too much coffee, or they suffered from seizure fits. Either way, this oddly enough seemed to work as a music video. I liked it, soft, yet crazy!

The music, animation was awesome but I couldn't exactly follow the story very well......I know there's a deeper meaning and metaphor being played throughout the show.

She only attends school in spirit-formed, most of the class and teacher believe she's absent and mark as "absent" in the register despite actually being there. So when the day comes when she go to school with her body and soul, she is given a pile of work to do for missing school days. On the way back, she stares up in the sky in search of something or just staring at something in the sky....perhaps a helicopter. She gets in these accidents or should I say she self-mutilates herself making her hospital-ridden. However, she is finally able to come over mental complex and by the end of the music video she is released from clutches and makes a fall back in the world. Chisato decides to go back to school and her friend sees her.....the friend herself seems really happy as if she won't be bored anymore and thats why she was frantically taking out the chalk out of the board cleaners at the end I think.

Would have been better with different music. Though I have to say I really liked the art and animation. Like others, couldn't follow the story too much, though JCDRANZER's post does sound like that could be it.

And that, kids, is why you shouldn't study. Otherwise you are going to get hit by a car and spend your time hallucinating about school in the hospital.

Not exactly sure what the helicopters are supposed to represent, but I think that they are probably the people who free from being obsessed with school activities.

Pretty interesting art style if you ask me! Reminds me a bit of some shaft productions! But quite nice in general I must say, better than expected.
