Okay, Saya's up to something. They almost made it look like that she's Black Gold Saw. I don't think so, but it would make sense.

Such a twisted guidance counselor. Crazy. Was she really supposed to be Black Gold Saw, as it seems to be hinted at by this episode?

The connective realism between real life and dreams are quite interesting in the way they portray it. I like how the dreams reflect the emotions and reactions of the real word, but at the same time don't necessarily force it. I'm quite interested still. Looking forward to the next!

I don't understand why Yomi would be jealous...

She thinks of Mato as her best friend and therefore wants Mato to feel the same. It's pretty easy to understand.

This is getting darker than I thought it would. I like how whether the other world is a metaphor or real is open to personal interpretation, although from this episode it does seem to be leaning to it being real.

Great series so far though. :D

I thought the other world was just a metaphor or something, seems like its not. Wonder what will happen to Kohata since it seems like she got killed in that other world. Though that wheelchair girl is said to be getting better now. Saya is a crazy devious counselor.

Am I the only one who didn't even think Saya was a creep for a single second?

I mean, shit, when you're ridiculed by the entire fucking school over something as mean and intimate as a love confession that was met with extreme douchebaggery, you're obviously going to feel bad deep inside no matter how cool-headed you are. And she probably felt for Kohata when she cried like that. Mimicking Yomi's expression to me seemed more like she was surprised and uneasy over Yomi suddenly running away.

All this fucking over dramatic crying. Christ, what a horrible show.

The counselor does look suspicious. Could she be the red eyed shooter?

Now, I'm really thinking that Black Devil Girl is Saya-sensei.
The girls that were with Black Devil were Kohata-sempai. ...I think.

It seems that Saya's other self can control others. I didn't know she was that red-haired woman.
Poor Kohachi. Why must publicize the love letter? Cruel.

It's pretty clear to me Saya is also a character in the alternative world. It also looks like that she is the antagonist in that universe, not that I like her counselling in this world either. It always seems manipulative and turn out worse for the girl seeking counselling.
So Black Rosk Shooter is going around killing of unhappy people in the alternative world huh? I wonder if it is some kind of liberation.

I like this show, very interesting. Looks like Saya is a major asshole. She is turning the girls against each other possibly and abusing them and making them feel bad on purpose. Also poor Takanashi, she feels so left out. And poor Kohachi ;_; Saya just went psychological warfare on her.

Loved the episode! The part where Yuu and Mato feel sympathy for Kohata really got to me. Also the part when BRS slays Kohata's other self and Kohata collapsing in Mato's world. I also think Ms.Saya is drugging Kohata, that could also be the reason she collapsed. Ms.Saya is definitely Black Gold Saw and I see Yomi having a psychotic break.

New to the forums! Can anyone fill me in?

Yomi is beginning to get obsessive over Yomi.
Red is Saya-Sensei and im guessing the hooded figures are the students.
Things from the dream world are taking affect on things in the real world.
Really enjoyed this episode.

So far, this series has been way more entertaining than the score of 7.26 would have suggested. Art is top notch and while the plot is nothing spectacular its still interesting enough to be enjoyable. I really like the contrast between the surprisingly graphic fight scenes in the dreamscape and the mystery elements applied in the real world. Great short series for in between.

So I'm guessing the counselor is the "red-eyed" girl?
She sure can make people think that they're crap :/

Not sure why Black Rock sliced Koha's head in the alternate world.

Ok, I found it weird that they cried but maybe they are somehow connected, with their emotions.
Taku was actually also bullied when his friends took away that letter. I hope things will get clear with him and Arata in the end.

And somehow I don't trust Saya, she seem like psycho enjoying this but who knows. Black Gold Saw may be their final enemy if you think about it.

And another head slained in the Otherworld. I think it's safe to say that to overcome their pain one has to be defeated in there. I think we can call this process the elemination of bad emotions. For some those emotions are Doubt, for others it is Fear (and Arata actually closed many of those little little injuries inside her).

Black Rock Shooter is gradually slaying those painful emotions, freeing those girls from suffering. But one question remains that's need to be asked right now - If all girls in Otherworld are slained by her, who would save her?

I'm starting to understand a bit.

Still... i have no idea why a counselllor would make someone feel bad about themselves, she must be up to something.

Something is bad about Saya/Counsellor.. Maybe she's that red-eyed girl.

And Mato is dreaming that weird things - Kagari shooting macaroons from that machine ? Ok.

And Kohachi.. :( She was so pretty

It shows how dependent Kagari was on Yomi which in doing so, made her feel that she needed to be Yuu's replacement for being Mato's best friend. Her jealousy was irritating (whenever Mato brought Yuu up in their convos) because it isn't something you should get completely depressed about, you're still "good" friends. Saya and her sudden change of heart from being light-hearted to a more darkened persona and taunting Kohata in claiming that everyone's laughing behind her back despite her strength to ignore her frightened/weakened inner self.

I'm assuming BGS was watering and raising nameless, hooded figures (otherselves) to implement in the "Otherworld". During that time, the newborns echo upon BRS's arrival as she believes they were threats. Despite getting rid of all of them, she gave Kohata's otherself a chance (reaching out and giving her hand, in other words, you're either with me or against me) but knowing Kohata's otherself, she shivers in fright and so that ends up making BRS make the choice by beheading her as she did not accept. This causes pain to Kohata and lose consciousness similar to what Kagari went through in the hospital when her otherself was executed by BRS.
