The scary part of this curse is, that if you (=student) screw up, you will pull somebody from your family to the grave.

Just want to point out we know from episode 1 he was born in the village and moved to Tokyo with his dad shortly afterwards.

As such, Mei must have at some point been inquiring into the situation beyond what the class deemed as acceptable, and then deaths began appearing like in Sakakibara's case, and the way they treat her now is the "countermeasure".
Not sure about this,the anime starts on April 25th so that only leaves about 3 weeks for all that to happen.

Actually I was speculating that Mei was in a similar position Sakakibara is in now in the pasy, i.e. her presence and subsequent action had deaths attributed to them. Then again now that I rewatched the episode some someone mentions that now deaths had happened for a while before Sakakibara came.

Cue, the doll falling from the shelf at the store -> Mizuno falling from the top floor. Obvious death flag was obvious Liking the episode endings and the pacing, hope it keeps up.

IMO I don't know.... If you get a reference for the Parasol (of Doom) Event and the Glass Falling Event, I'll give you kudos points for that.

Just wanted to say... So they don't die in the order of the ending. Good try anyway

It was pretty cool it's so obvious right from the start of the show Mei is a ghost but they still manage to build up the moment Sanae confirms the fact. The rumbling coming from my subwoofer was crazy but then again... It's always been the case in this show. Sound effects are ace XD

I didn't notice it but it was pretty obvious who was going to die as soon as they chose to start ignoring Sakakibara too. Anyone linked to Mei through someone else just goes it seems...

The moral of the story is different from episode 3, which was "superstition and paranoid kills".

In episode 4, it is about society responsibility and their consequences. In both cases, the accidents can be avoid if people had the heart to be mindful of what they are doing. First, non-tempered glasses shouldn't be lying outside when it is windy. Secondly, whoever got the elevator suspended should take full responsibility for not doing routine check-up to ensure safety measures are in place. You cannot just assume people will read the worn-out post inside the elevator!

Ok this show is just getting stupid.. the accidental deaths that have no semblance to reality.. elevators are fitted with emergency brakes in case of cable failure or earthquakes, ect.. the unrealistic fall down the stairs.. sorry but this show is losing it for me big time in the stupid unbelievable deaths.. only the glass with a big hard wind but even than the wind wasn't hard enough to tip the glass that far that was one large glass and the wind would of had to be hard enough to about blow them off their feet. So I am giving this show a very poor rating for stupidity.. They need to hire an advisor because evidently the animators do not have any semblance of reality in the death scenes.

Secondly no explanation why the HELL the class has not been sealed off if it's cursed! Damn if I was in that class I would of been visiting some priests to exorcise the damn class! But instead it's all about everyone ignoring what is really going on! And a back story of a girl that everyone loved and liked being killed in an accident than killing everyone makes no damn sense! If you were a nice person your not going to come back killing. So even the back story makes no damn sense! His own relative does not even seem to care that he's in Class 3 and acts like it's nothing!

Unless he or she was killed in a really brutal way.

Oh for the... Just f@cking tell him already! I barely ever swear but this is getting way too annoying for me to really give a damn about anyone! "If we told him, we could have avoided it" "No, not yet!" Just WTF?! They are contradicting themselves!

If there won't be any good explanation, this series will go into a trash bin!
So many annoying things that... BAH!

And give the f@cking characters some personality and repeat their names at least once per episode so I could give a damn about them when they'll die!

Shiki also had a lot of small characters but somehow they insignificance never bothered me there. A story telling was far better there.

Yes, and possibly have more people die. Fucked if you do...fucked if you don't.

I think it would have been neat if the elevator broke between the 3 and 5th floors

To all those sceptics who said it would never happen in real life...

That's a construction platform lift though. It didn't even have a closed elevator shaft that would have provided air resistance.
