Here's a real piece of evidence from the anime that Mikami = Reiko that I completely missed (you had to look frame by frame to catch this in episode 7):
The 23rd student in the 1983 roster is called Reiko and has the same address as Kouichi (his grandparents'). This confirms beyond doubt she's our Reiko. We can see that the second kanji of her last name is 神 (Kami) , exactly the same used to write
Ms. Mikami's name
Furthermore, we know that the students are listed in alphabetical order. The one two spots above her is
tsunaga (not sure how the person who made the pic deduced that though). The name right below her is spelled
It is therefore highly likely that her full name is Mikami Reiko. Add this to the similarities pointed out earlier by kikomarine and Pellissier, and I'd say we've got a pretty good case.
I can't say I like it however, as I find it unfair information available to Kouichi -and probably the rest of the cast- all along has been withheld from us. I thought we'd be given as much clues as him to solve the mystery.
Edit: My mind has just been blown. I had looked up Reiko and Mikami's voice actresses a few weeks ago but I didn't pay attention to their name. I just wanted to know if they were played by different people and didn't bother to look further once I found out that was the case. And now I read today that Ms. Mikami is played by
. Sounds familiar? Shuffle a few syllables and you get...
!! There was such a big clue right in front of your eyes all along!
That's pretty damn neat. Now I wonder if Reiko and Mikami truly have two different voice actresses, or if they are both the same person hiding under different names.
