I hope it's #3. It's just funnier that way.

Aye, I'm pretty sure that was what we saw in episode 4.

I'd say n. 3. The previous accidents were unavoidable. In this case there were some options and the mechanism looks too simple.
or
4. The real Mei was trolling him too, knowing that Kouichi wouldn't fall for that.

Best way to tell that a freak accident in a horror story actually is a freak accident...no one gets hurt.

I've been following the series since the release of its first episode, and I'm glad that it has its own subforum now. I like Another's subtle portrayal of horror, in the sense that it effectively uses visuals (e.g. the dolls) to direct and intrigue the viewer - I actually find it more of 'creepy' than 'scary.'

With Yukari and Sanae's deaths, things are beginning to pick up. Despite that, so much is still shrouded in mystery - I'm betting on a connection between the bird and Aunt Reiko. And that old woman at the doll shop adds more to the creepiness...

Actually, and this has been pointed out before in this thread, we already saw the other eye of the doll. Misaki herself removed its hair and said something along the lines of "Its only half similar to me. Maybe less."

Could all th accidents until now be just bad luck???

You know how "bad days" work.... sometimes you wake up and right after getting out of the bed things start f....g up and the string of bad luck events just doesnt seem to take an end.

I am wondering, if this course isnt genrated by people believing in it. I mean, they are all nervous, bcause they think the curse started and due to this things indeed start happening. Because the fear alters their way of thinking and influences their actios.... something like that.

Admittedly, what i just said sounds a bit farfetched.... but I think that it could be an inteteresting way to end the anime: there was no curse, the accidents were a result of your fear!

BTW guys, beware of my umbrella:

Its "Misaki" the one who died 26 years ago, Misaki is the name and the surname is unknown for now, in the other hand the eyepatch girl we know is Mei Misaki, with Mei being the name and Misaki the surname.

The surname of the first Misaki is not unknown, it's Fujioka. Fujioka Misaki.
Mei said so near the end of episode 3. She also claims that the dead Misaki was her cousin.

No, Fujioka Misaki is the name of a girl who died right when the series started. Mizuno-san gave that information to Kouichi in episode 3 after she researched if there was a Misaki who died on the day Kouichi met Mei in the hospital.
Mei said that this person was her cousin and so it's possible to assume that this was that ominous "other half" she was delivering the doll to in episode 1.

So this is not the first Misaki, as we know through Mizuno that Fujioka Misaki died in April. Not to mention that no hospital would keep a corpse around for 26 years.

That's a neat idea. I'll be helping out.

Oh look.. that doll maker woman is very close to Mei. I wonder what her story is.

Sorry, my mistake. I totally removed the dialogue between Kouichi and Mizuno in episode 3 (episode ending kinda blew it all away).

So can we expect someone to die every episode now? Or is it just one death per month?

Dude, they're not in a war so using "KIA" feels a bit off. Sorry for being such a G.Nazi...

Nice Idea though.

I'm betting at two per month.

I think for the sake of this series KIA can mean Killed In Accident.

@sa547 - I like how you grayed out the deceased characters.
