I'm a horrible, horrible person, but I couldn't help, but laugh even before the deaths of the week.

That was probably the phenomenon's doing. It does more than kill people.

Doubt it. It's just Teshigawara and a B-movie comedy moment.

Why do you think the two are mutually exclusive?

Nooo.

Not the tape. I waited all week for that tape.
Oh well, it's kind of obvious that something would've happened to it to make them not hear the important part and that things wouldn't work out so perfectly.
And the girl's brother at the end, oh dear. He looked like a pile of mush. :<

Cause the calamity could kill them all right there

Unless you're suggesting the calamity has a sense of humour in delaying that moment...

But we know the phenomenon isn't malicious. It's not seeking out deaths for the hell of it, and it's had plenty of opportunities to kill in the past when it didn't. The phenomenon has more ways to accomplish what it needs to than murder (e.g. altering the class roster and everyone's memories).

Uh that statement would bring us back to "why are the actual deaths occuring again?".

I'm kind of happy that Kumo's brother died instead of her. I just like her design to see her die. :<

Next episode looks like it's going to be a fun ride: lots of crying, and hopefully some more revelations. Episode #10 is titled 'Glass eye', and Mei is the first thought that comes to my head. Truth or red herring? I'd like to believe the latter, personally. Actually, speaking of the episode titles, is it possible that the 'Another' is that doll that looks akin to Mei?

Welp. Lots of information to add to the Fatality Scoreboard. Any help with the following questions is greatly appreciated.

- So Nakao died because he hit his head off something. Death by tumor? Death by concussion?

- As for Ayano (the girl who tried moving out of Yomiyami), death by road hazard? Death by car accident?

- Komu's brother; death by crane?

Another thought...Mei asked for the "ghost picture" at the end of episode 7, too...she really wants to see it.

What do you mean?

Mm, that sounds like a good assumption. But would that mean "Glass Eye" doesn't refer to Mei's glass eye, but the doll's? (I just had a random thought tied to that. We haven't seen that doll's left eye, have we? Can you imagine if Kirika stuck Mei's tumored eye in that socket...? )

Mei showed us the Eye when we first saw the doll, she moved the tuft of hair and it was just another green eye.

Mei's legs going over that sign

This episode was okay IMO the theories of last episode were rendered kind of pointless by making last weeks death just a prolonged one. This weeks death SUCKED!

I liked Aya :<

So last week's death technicaly occured at the village,I feel so trolled

Same with that tape,the longer the not important part was going the more I was thinking "I'm not gonna get to hear the important part am I?"

Really great soundwork again this week,like how the "s" sounds were accentuated on the tape recording for exemple.

The Author is still a Mystery Novel writer, so be wary about what information you trust or not, all non-detective chars are permitted to tell their own view of what happened or even lie, so what anyone says does not necessarily have to be the truth, but might just be their opinion.

Especially in a case like this: while the event in the town is definitely causal for the death by boat, he still died somewhere else.

The manga even has a well camouflaged hint about how and why people would die outside of the town because of the curse. -> a hint that should have been mentioned already or was even mentioned in the anime too.

I vote for Death by concussion or drowning. (If the librarian is correct.) No opinion on the other cause of death listings.

Did anyone catch during the opening when the various voice-over students were discussing the beach death that one of them said something to the effect that the calamity was all the fault of the transfer student? I wonder if there will be further repercussions on Kouichi for having broken the rules (the rules he never knew about )

The brother who died by crane, he wasn't the same man as the 1983 student who made the tape, i.e. the guy we met at the beach, was he? (One blogger said he was the same person, but I don't think that's right.)

Speaking of the tape, I was genuinely surprised. Not about it stopping just before the important information was revealed, but about how it stopped. I expected static similar to what happens during Kouichi's phone calls with his dad. That the tape would be pulled from the cassette wasn't among my list of Things That Could Go Wrong.

Finally, is this the first time we've had confirmation that the current class 3 students are not the same building as where the original Misaki incident took place? Proof that changing school buildings hasn't prevented the phenomenon's occurrence.
