There's a potential for them to advance it further (say, by digging deeper into the phenomenon, or if some of the school's other ghost stories turned out to be true), but are there any valid news release of a sequel?
The author is planning a spin-off and a sequel to his novel.

Hard to say. It would be nice, but by the time they might get around to doing it, most people may have forgotten about this show already (though whether or not that's a bad thing is up to debate).

You already sort of mentioned the spoilers, but I'll respond in spoiler tags anyway:
Spoiler for Explanations involving the end of the series:


Quote:
And the fact that Misaki's artificial eye could see the dead kidda ruins the anime > <
...
then she could have said something....?
Just my thought though...
She said that the reason why she didn't tell anyone is because they wouldn't believe her. Thus, there was no point. I think that's a perfectly reasonable explanation. I mean, if someone who is in social agony comes up to you and says "hey, I have this eye that can see the dead," would you believe them? Aside from that, there's another reason why there would have been no point in stating who the "other" was:
Spoiler for Dealing with how to end the phenomenon:


Mei also remarked that she wasn't 100% positive about interpreting what she saw with her fake eye. It was partly for that reason that she asked Kouichi to show her his mother's class photo. She wanted to verify that the unique color that she saw was something that only she could see.

whaa
that's cleeeear explanation
cleared my doubts
sorry, I had removed my original post as i did not use the spoiler tag
but thank you very much for the reply ^^

I probably missed some parts
as I was always multi-tasking while I watch'd anime...
totally missed the reason for Misaki remaining silent
but I should have thought of it even though I missed that part xD
yea, who would believe she could see the dead

So she verified the color after seeing Sakakibara's mom's photo then...
:/
poor her...
well at least it's good she met Sakakibara
she can have her normal life back (well, not normal. but she would not be treated as someone who does not exist anymore)
Sad to see Reiko getting sent back at the end though, even though it was the right thing to do (and having so many students sacrifice before the truth popped out)
being separated is cruel...

This anime reminded me of "Higurashi When They Cry"
*thumbs up* ^^

The series thought me that sometimes "its better to tell than to keep things to yourself, once it started, there is no turning back." It clears your conscience, "at least, I did my part'.

Yea, but I guess since there are so many people involved and saying out loud might hurt other people since there was no proof to begin with.
Spoiler:

So, yea you would not regret after telling the truth; hence, finished your part. But, you will end up getting yourself into trouble and nothing would get solved > <

You've sort of asked the question with a spoiler again (which I've removed from the quote).. so here's the explanation in spoiler tags:
Spoiler for Requires knowing who the "other" is:

Wait a minute... how far does this memory manipulation go? Did Kouichi's father get his memory manipulated as well? It'd be weird if he knew his sister-in-law died while his son and in-laws don't. But in that case, how did the father remember going back to the town 1.5 years ago?

And in that case, what about friends of his father or his father's relatives? Surely some of them knew he went back to town to attend a funeral. Would their memories get wiped as well?

Seems like a massive oversight.

You're forgetting that the phenomenon has a geographical limit and how it protects that limit. Yes, Kouichi's father remembered that his sister-in-law was dead. He remembered because he was outside of the phenomenon's geographical reach. Every time he said something during his phone calls that might indicate what he knew, the phenomenon interfered with the cell phone connection. To put it another way, the father remembered the truth and occasionally mentioned it, but Kouichi never heard what daddy said because the cell phone connection went bad due to the phenomenon's interference.

Well there was that one time when his father mentioned Kouichi having been in Yomiyama a year and a half ago, to which Kouichi went "WTF" and then his father went, "no wait, I was mistaken". Could be an indication that the memory alteration is "contagious" when communicating with someone outside of the boundary.

I figure this is the best place to ask, even if the sub forum is somewhat dead.

Each source tells a different story. The overall plot and the general outcome are the same, but most details are different in some form or way. In your case, Wiki probably refers to the original novel, which came first.

This might sound like I didn't even properly watch the Anime and I'm a douche or it's maybe because it's 6 AM and I haven't slept but I've rewatched Another carefully and I still have those questions:
1.Was it Sakakibara that killed Reiko 1 year and a half ago?Him and the killer are very alike.
2.Does that have to do anything with the fact that he doesn't remember Izumi and their hand shook?If yes ,what do they have in common? If not,why can't he remember Izumi?
