Yuri moves in with dad but is never accepted as dad and new wife have a kid ( a baby boy). Thinking that it was all her fault, Yuri commits suicide. (Yuri was talking a little about how she felt about the death of her sibs.)

Unable to move on, Yuri lands in Purgatory with all her memories intact and decides to rebel being in that Anger stage of grief response.

*There you have it. A suicide scenario.*

ok, after watching ep 2, I am over 75 percent sure that Yui is one of Yuri's siblings (that died) and will be instrumental for pushing or reducing the rebellion. (and more character development for Yuri)

Spoiler for it's cute:
In the first episode I'd agree. The second episode is a bit more strange. I mean obviously they've been building weapons down there for a very long time. But now randomly she decides to make an attack. If they are constantly doing this shouldn't she be constantly trying to stop them? Just leaves me wondering why attack then. Sure Tenshi might respond in extreme ways (stabbing Otonashi to answer a question), but she hasn't made moves without any reason to them.

Maybe someone tipped her off, or Tenshi got caught in a trap and is investigating further.

I was about to ask about her. She doesn't appear in the OP or the ED, so I was curious as to whether there's a reason for that or not. (I guess she's not a member of the SSS? But according to Wiki she is not only an SSS member but a main character as well.)

I also thought that she looked like one of Yuri's younger sisters, the only difference being Yui's hair color is a lighter/brighter shade of pink. I think it'd be awesome if she was her younger sister. *w*

They ran out of ammo and weapons. Tenshi was preventing them from getting resupplied.

The traps were there because she prob did try before.

The sibs died before Yuri. Most likely the reincarnated sib doesn't remember her. It would be very tragic for a kid to have an early death twice imo.

I didn't even notice her until I read about her in this thread. Her only appearance was in the band, right?

Great second episode, definitely reminds me of an MMO. We've now seen 2 guard skills of Angel, distortion and delay. I wonder how many she has. Angel certainly reminds me of an elite MMO boss.

I think they're all in a comatized state and hooked up on life support.

This afterlife they are experiencing is a virtual reality program to keep their minds active

But her death was caused by a murder, you only loose your memories when your death was by an accident... right? I think that's what Yuri said in the first episode, correct me if I'm wrong

Me too, I didn't actually notice her much. But she wasn't playing with the band in the first episode.

You lose your memories when you take head trauma during death, like if you fell from a building or were hit by a car.

I was curious so I watched the band part of the episode again. Yui was the pink haired girl playing guitar.

Here's her profile:
http://myanimelist.net/character/24515/Yui

Hmm, I'm curious about her.

Oh man..so very funny. Loved this episode. Reminded me of that Halloween episode of Boy Meets World where they parody Scream, lol.

I do feel bad for Yuri though, that is some heavy stuff.

:
You don't know how Yuri died because she hasn't said anything about that yet. You only know that she survived a situation in which her sibs got murdered in front of her, 1 every 10 min. Her situation placed her at risk for being a suicide victim.

Tenshi said that head trauma is the reason for the memory loss when you land in Purgatory.

But if you're reincarnated, you may or may not have those past life memories. What's a barnacle going to do with a human memory?

In episode 1 all she did was take pictures of the band before they started playing. =P

Are you sure? There's a guitar player on stage that looks a lot like the picture on that profile.
