After this, I'm definitely nominating Another for Best Comedy Series alongside Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou for this season. Holy shit that was hilarious! When I saw the panning to the elevator I was like "LOL elevator man, can't do that bro"...Professor Plum, with a rope, in the conservatory please next time.

But seriously, that last bit where they repeated the face-slam like two or three times from different angles I honestly thought they did for comedic purposes.

Hmm it could be that the curse just started to get out of hand. It doesn't matter who believes or who doesn't...as long as they are connected to the third class...

Hmm it'll probably answered in the next ep. Why they're really dying "accidentally."

I wonder just who is not going to die. I assume that those in the ED are the ones that will make it. Kind of sad that the nurse had to go. She was one of the interesting characters since she actually interacted with him.

Anyway, they mentioned that something happened 2 years before that. When did his mother die?


I would like to know this too, I don't think everyone will die, it would kinda stupid but most probably will. I was wondering if the OP or the ED does give hints about that but now that one of the girls from the ED has died I don't what it means anymore...

And have you guys noticed that the OP is a little different? In the part where the students/supporting characters appear they took out the girl who died and put a new boy instead. I wonder if this show is eventually going to feature all the students in the class. I thought the ones in the ED were the most important one but since Yukari has died...

And once again, a character I liked dies. =/ I think this show is killing on purpose the likable characters so that we frustated. I just hope Teshigawara doesn't die. And I wonder if the nurse's brother will die (or maybe has died and ir wasn't shown yet?) since Yukari died in the same day her mother did.

Wow, this show is amazing! Can't wit for the next ep! =)

Still no clue about what's happening (and subsequently what happened 26 years ago) but the mystery side is pretty great. I thought Mizuno was going to be the first to die, she was the second. Who's next then, the best friend since he revealed half of the story ?

What I don't understand yet is why the class from 26 years ago didn't have anymore deaths. From what I gather, only Mei died that year, and it seemed as though /everyone/ accepted that she was still, somehow, there with them. So my question now is, when exactly did this curse begin? It may have been unnerving for that class to think of their deceased classmate as still there, but it seems like no harm came to any of them. Could something have happened after that year to cause the curse to begin?

Another question, maybe someone here can answer it: when does a typical junior high year end at a Japanese public school? It was stated this episode that someone is supposed to die each month, which could mean one person or one set of deaths during any given month. How many months/deaths would be left, then?
Yukari and her mother died in May, and the nurse has now died in June. So, could her brother be the next victim for the same month, or will anyone else die at all during June?


It wasn't yet certain that the Misaki who died 26 years ago was Misaki Mei who was being badgered by Kouichi every now and then.

Also, I think that there aren't anymore deaths at that time because...the curse wasn't yet established? OR MAYBE as what the students in the introduction before the OP of this episode had said, "It didn't happen last year." What I meant to say is that, it might be that 26 years ago might be A YEAR THAT NOTHING HAPPENED, and that it was 25 years ago, or the years after that student Misaki 26 years ago died.

LIKE THIS:

26 years ago from 1998=NOTHING HAPPENED
25 years ago from 1998=SOMETHING HAPPENED

And so on.



School years in Japan starts in April and ends near the end of March of next year I think. Between the end of March and April...I think about 20 days, or my memory is probably eluding me...but around that time would be some sort of Spring break. Summer starts usually on July 20 or 21 and ends at the end of August.

They don't want to frustrate us. They do it for the impact. A character we care for dieing has much more impact than Girl A (the anime version of a redshirt) dieing. I liked the nurse, too, but I expected her to die. And right now I ask myself not "who will die?" but "who will survive?"

Btw, the nurse's brother is my personal top candidate for the next victim.

NO not the nurse even though i knew she would die since the epsiode she started to dig into the matters it still kills me to see her go out :(,i pray to god twin tails and the sporty guy doesn't die.

though this episode made alot more things clearer only thing i'm having a hard time understanding is how people die because both the nurse and Kouichi did not run into mei that day so is just mentioning her name since *it's started* = death? also that girl almost got hit by the glass but mei wasn't around so could the deaths be random since everyone in class 3 is cursed or is just anyone being around Kouichi pretty much mean bad luck!? guess i'm just gonna have to wait and find out.

And thus, the two characters who I didn't want to see die have already died.

On a positive note, this means I won't get as depressed for the rest of the deaths! Woo!

Right, my bad on the 'Mei' mention. I usually screw up /something/ in my larger posts. XD

Yeah, that would make sense; for the curse to start the year after the death of 'Misaki'. But what still bugs me is WHY the curse started in the first place... I'm sure others have mentioned it, but if the class from 26 years ago accepted her existence, and were fine, what could have changed in the following years that brought upon the curse? *brain = hurt*

Okay, so, if the story is going by school years, then will it end by the middle of July? Would that mean only one or two more deaths?
Or is Kouichi, as of now in the story, only in Grade 8 going into Grade 9, and thus staying for part of the NEXT school year, possibly continuing the deaths into August/September? (Mostly this is based around the fact that I forget if Kouichi is leaving at the end of the current school year, or the next school year.)

I'm on the same page. I never use umbrellas anyways, but I really don't wanna be near any now. XD As for elevators, it's a good thing this episode came out /after/ I took a rickety looking elevator at one of the local universities... XS

Not only did the glasses girl died but her mother too. Wow their family must be devastated. Also i notice they they took her out of the opening.

Now we also learn about the curse of class 3 where students from the class will start to die every month, at least or exactly 1 person i'm not sure and it can affect family members too. Damn

So the glasses girl die in May and now at the end the nurse, who has a brother in the class, die in June.....and yes i'm still watching this

One more thing the dolls...those dolls still creep me out

Wow! They did it! The Nurse this time! WOW! What was fast. It was not meant to until some suspense happens. That was fast.

As I suspected at first it will be people close to the MC or that tried to get close. Then in thee end it matters not anymore all are to die in the class. Just like the fears of Ring Zero brought me. This series is the inspiring directing that stemmed from that horror series. I can feel it.

It's exactly the fear that I felt in Ringu series. I wonder if of those who saw the series if they would agree with me?

Other than that some notes and free flow thoughts.

In the beginning, as I though mourning Yukari’s death her with a white flower, is the sign that at least that is not bad and won’t cause the thing to react. Still it was said that the car accident in fact was a death for Yukari’s mother but I guess that was not enough. I do appreciate the respect in the spoiler
that’s very nice to do. However the black crow her on top of the water reservoir is bad news. Mainly due to the fact that the reservoir represents water and itself is life. Thus life is tainted with death itself. Nice representation there. I did like from the start Kouichi’s face here. Expression wise done fine. While it was nice to see Sanae’s face being happy here. Nice to know her brother is in the spoiler
Takeru so I see. Hospital design seems intact and gloomy as always. Considering Misaki’s cousin died there not too long ago.

The pointy umbrella that poor poor Yukari death scene here were dreadful flashbacks for me. I enjoyed seeing Sanae’s face here with her normal clothing being happy but somehow it looks like Kouichi was not happy at all here. When the doll in the spoiler
appears along with the fact the Thing might have been watching/hearing the conversation there. It meant nothing of short trouble.

About the first death warning in this episode, I loved seeing
At first Ayano if I heard right here being cheery towards Kouichi along with her faces in the spoiler
she was quite hilarious. Despite being in the acting club and putting out a act to mask her fears. She looked like a person that cheers up people. That is until the event in the spoiler
based on it I highly suspect that the Thing was observing Kouichi and wanted to put an end to him and the girl together. Thus is used wind to deviate the glass towards in falling on them. If it did there would be possible fatal wounds due to the cutting. Survival would be minimal. Ayano’s face in fear was rich as ever.

About the doll house, it fascinating mainly due to meeting her whom later will be revealed. Suffice to say that she lives upstairs or at least occupies that place. However the old hag here freaked me out. I could never get over her appearance. She freaks me out. The doll in the spoiler
scarred the crap out of me. Along with the fact that the rest down here still did their job. There was no difference until the 2 dolls in the spoiler
appeared around the time Kouichi passed by. While now it looks to me confirmed that the doll here is perhaps the one missing that eye Mei has. While I though it was something else than I though it was nothing more than Mei here. Whom I loved seeing of her faces in the spoiler
that was very nice to see. The new doll parts here kept me feared out for some reason. Being some other parts not really seen around.

When at one point the doll fell in the spoiler
I was wondering what it meant. While I get the impression that the doll here with blue hair can represent Kouichi somehow and that the doll that looks like Mei is getting more and more mystical.

About Reiko, at first she looked like she fell asleep drunk here and her complaining of headaches as she is taking some Tylenol to release the headache. I find myself wondering if the Thing has anything to do with her headaches at all. Could be a hangover only. Kouichi looks somehow good with the shade and pyjamas. I like the way it presented him there. While I do admit that Reiko’s mood in the spoiler
translated into 2 things.

A) I suspect her trying to tell Kouichi what he wants to know was stopped by the Thing or something since it could have lead to her death if she spoke too much.

B) The fact she hates the bird leads me to think it’s either possessed by the Thing or perhaps the soul of Kouichi’s mother? If she really was killed in the town do you think her soul crossed over where no Angels or anything is? I doubt therefore I assume Kouichi’s mother is around to help.

About the class, well at first nice to see Takeru as the first person to enter the classroom. From the first reaction of the classroom in the spoiler
I knew right away that Kouichi is being ignored or feared by the whole class. Kouichi’s expression here shows his surprise of this. The crow here along with at first it being up-close then it suddenly looks at you is quite the fear technique of horror used around. That this show is using some of them from movies is nice to know. Kouichi being ignored is further shown by some boys paying attention to him here the suddenly their expression change to some fear of sadness here. Or perhaps fear. Well for sure he is being ignored.

About the end, other than the gore and death it was interesting. For one the meeting between Izumi and Teshigawara in the spoiler
was funny but intriguing. As Izumi scolded Teshigawara for saying certain elements he should have not. The meeting in the spoiler
previously was to decide on informing Kouichi with no consequences to themselves of what they are not to say. Suffice to know that countermeasures were to be used and a similar incident happened 2 years ago. Perhaps the same way will be used to deal with the one now. Let’s say ignoring Kouichi and making him not exist for everyone? Well it looks like it already.

As so as I saw the nurse on the rooftop, being a manga reader I knew what was to come up but his fast I did not think of it so. While as background static happened here I knew the Thing’s presence is stronger than ever. Thus happens in the spoiler
paranormal activity so to speak. Sabotaging the elevator’s motor and any emergency means. As to make person a pile of human splat from top floor to bottom floor. Sanae had no chance.

About the preview, looks like the water arc is coming from the looks of the river. This writing here will make Mei think a lot about some stuff. It’s a key thing. I do wonder who is this guy here and most of all why the teacher meeting here? The teacher the way he was shown along with his looks does not look too convincing of nothing but trouble. It’s nice to know that there shall be more Mei! Well she is back in class. Can’t wait to know of Kouichi in the spoiler
seems he is shocked of something for sure.

BTW GIFs of Sanae's death are done in the club:
http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=396743
there are some for signature. Not sure if too gory for it but it's usable for its size.

Image Stitches are done in the spoiler
meh just for fun some stuff.

Aww I thought the nurse was one of the cutest characters, behind the Head of Countermeasures anyway.

I was still like "OOOOHH SHIIIIIII" when she got in the elevator but at least I didnt wince like I did last episode.

Something that kept bothering me was, if class 3 is known to be cursed why put any students in the class? It seems like the easiest way to solve the problem would be to keep the class empty. Unless of course there's some reason they must have a class 3 and it just hasn't been revealed yet.

Damien is from the movie "The Omen"? I think lol

Yes this is a reference to the 1976 occult-horror movie The Omen.
It was about the possibility that an American politician is raising the Antichrist as his son. Accidental but brutal deaths come to those who seem to stand in Damiens way. That and because in the movie June 6th (6/6/-) was Damien's birthday is why Mizuno is making that reference.

So we could wonder whether maybe she was wrong and Damien is in this town XD

So the nurse is gone now... I'm starting to think Kouichi is the bringer of misfortune, and not Mei. So far, it's people who's acquainted with him who died. The nurse didn't even know who Misaki Mei is until after some research.

Also, if there's anything this anime taught me, it's not to use the stairs or elevator... stay on the ground floor forever! >:D

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

Ever since "that begun" the anime is building up my interest. I really want to know more about how the situation in class 3 was handled during the last 25 years since the curse began. It seems that it's all up to the students to find a survival strategy a whole year, so I believe different methods has been tried out and we know that it's possible to live through class 3.

I feel really bad for the young students, also those earlier involved, they have hopes for a good future and plan at which university they want to study or have talent in sports and art. They seems like normal and innocent kids, but that damn curse is nagging them in the back of their heads, it must be incredibly depressing.

Assuming the endgame for this anime is to find a solution to the curse and finally be free, the kids needs to stick together and TALK! The pigtailed girl Izumi seems to be in charge of making the class keeping the secret. I like that she takes the initiative for the task, but now that "it has begun" she really needs to inform Kouichi about everything they know. It would be terrible if the lead character continues to wander clueless around month after month while his classmates and their family members die one after another. I will be sad if/when that goofy sporty student is killed.

The anime is doing a great job on making the viewer guess whether or not Mei is a ghost or a real person being ignored to the extreme. I'm still unsure what to think.

The aunt being a former student in class 3 surprised me. Something must have happened during that year and she's not willing to tell it. The bird's endless calls "Why, Rei Why!" is tormenting her, but for some reason she wont get rid of it. It's suspicious.

Poor nurse, she should have taken the stairs. It's healthy and stuff like that, you know.

Sure, the girl with glasses from ep3 can attest to that :)

Touche.


LOL.

Reiko: I can't stand that damn bird.

Damn bird = Kouichi or just the bird?

Reiko voiced by "Sakakibara" Naoko, so "don't pray pray"

It was obvious that the elevator was not up to OSHA safety standards. I say, after watching the first two episodes, someone needs to start a petition to the file a lawsuit against elevator and umbrella companies and make them safer to use. Otherwise than from ruining safety credibility of two handy tools and killing off the glasses girl and the cute nurse, it's been an interesting series so far...I think...
