That logic makes complete sense, except it's never actually explained how the person ignored is actually picked. It might just be that "the person that sits in the back left corner doesn't exist" or some arbitrary rule like that. Or when the class roster is handed out at the beginning of the year, the teachers line out one student (like we saw), but that person might well be the dead one if his/her existence is already established in "memories." After all--the dead person is on that roster, or Kouichi and Mei could just count noses and go, "Hey, Izuki's not listed here! Get the exorcist!"

It's not really likely, but the idea that the writer would pull a last-second twist and reveal that one of the protagonists is the ghost (especially if the protagonists go from here on to work to try to end the curse forever) has some attraction as "the kind of thing writers do." I'm not saying it's so, just that the timing of Mei talking about how the dead person believes that he/she is actually alive comes so perfectly right after she assures Kouichi that she herself is alive.

That would, however, be cheesy, and thus far Another has only flirted with cheesiness (in the death scenes), so I'm hoping they don't go that route.

Ah now I remember where I saw Misaki Mei before...

Spoiler for OMG IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW:

She is probably chosen because her family is related to the Misaki legend.

I'm half-expecting Mei to twist everyone's new expectations sometime next episode and suddenly do something really gruesome or creepy. What we learned about her in episode 5, the gif of her dancing and those screenshots are there to give us false security, just you wait and see

Of course, if Mei does a sudden turnaround from "that shy quiet person in the corner that no one cares about" to "really playful girl", I'm pretty sure the people in the class would be freaked out.

Well, she didn't actually start out in the corner (teaser sequence) but was moved there when she became the one to be ignored. And when she went to the art club it became pretty clear that she was quite popular with the underclassmen. I'm guessing "normal" Mei isn't creepy or shy at all, just made that way by the isolation (which is doubling what she's getting at home from her mom, so school stops being a place where she can get some normalcy in life, making the situation doubly sad for her).

After seeing how popular she was among the members of the art club, I'm pretty sure she's been putting on an act all along in order to scare Kouichi away from her and ensure the safety of rest of the class. It didn't work out so well, since that only made her more intriguing in Kouichi's eyes. There's no way he could have left such a cute girl alone anyway

I think she's still a bit more quiet and reserved than most girls though. You won't see her act like in Kouichi's fantasy any time soon.
