I'm pretty sure she's human and/or 'real'; I think the question here is how much of her is 'real'.

I still think Mei just like to make stuff up for the lulz and I figure that that's just one of those cases along with her saying she doesn't remember the elevator conversation she had with Kouichi and then there'd the whole "I don't exist " declaration.

@toto: If the OP is anything to go, I think she was serious in that one instance. As for the elevator convo and that declaration, she doesn't really come across as a person who'd that just for the lulz. Or maybe she would. Who knows?

Alright, I've mentioned this in the other thread, but I don't think there's any harm in mentioning this here.

According to me, Misaki Mei is:

1: Real
2: Living
3: Human
4: Probably not quite "normal"
5: Not the exact cause of the deaths, but probably does have something to do with it

-Most likely, some, most, or all the class 3 iterations have a student who is her equivalent.
-The rules of the curse seem to state that in order to avoid an unfortunate and untimely demise, her existence must not be acknowledged.
-Even talking about her seems like a bad idea, which is why Kouchi has been kept in the dark right up until now.
-Her fake eye being able to see things that shouldn't be seen is probably true.


There's various other possibilities, but to me, and for now, this seems the most likely.

Unknown Soldier 2012-02-01 05:55

According to me, Misaki Mei is:

1: Cute
2: Adorable
3: Eyepatch Moe
4: Slightly unsettling
5: Pale

I love the VA who does her voice too. She is presented in a very understated, slightly monotone manner, but also cute and with a slightly threatening undercurrent. She's also a master at trolling, poor Kouichi doesn't know which way is up after she finishes a conversation with him. If you get too close to her, people around you start to die in gruesome and bloody ways, but it's worth it!

Assuming Mei is alive, I wonder why she was chosen to be this year's persona non grata?

Random lottery? That seems unlikely. Is it just the name coincidence? Does she have some sort of familial connection to the original Misaki? Could the doll's eye have marked her as "someone different" and therefore make her this year's candidate? Or is it something that hasn't been revealed to us yet?

By the way, I haven't decided whether I'm in the Mei is a Ghost or Mei is Alive camp yet. Every time I lean more strongly toward one theory, the show gives me a reason to lean toward the other. That's a fine piece of writing there.

Endless Soul 2012-02-01 09:47

Also assuming Mei is real, who were the other stand-ins from the previous years? What happened to them?

And yet, the show seems to suggest there were no stand-ins at all, with empty chairs and desks.

Hm, that's a good question. Perhaps the show wants to make us think that they were none because they were forgotten about?

Well they're in their 3rd year so whoever was a stand-in before would be in highschool....if they're alive.

and that makes her a perfect candidate for being the "ignored" person.. she pretty much takes her role seriously and warns Koichi not to come near her..

but Koichi is just ... stalker much?

Misaki must be alive.

The person that is being ignored must be chosen before the extra dead person is added because the act of choosing the person to be ignored requires acknowledgement of the person which means they aren't being ignored. Thus the person that is ignored can never be the extra dead person. Since Misaki was chosen to be ignored, she must be alive.

Quoted for truth. :)

Seems like there will be more and more moe moments between Mei and Kouichi. After all the two of them are now effectively isolated in the class and can only socialize with each other.

Up until the latest episode I referred to her as having ghost moe going on, but now perhaps that's not the case at all.

To mislead us I guess, I feel that in the latest episode that she's looking more 'colored' and less unearthly pale since the 'revelation'.

And I don't mean from that pic that Doraneko posted :p
