How the hell is Mochizuki still alive. That little art boy has triggered about a hundred death flag especially at the start. Then again Teshigawara has almost died comically a few times. That guy is immune for the time being however as he is a comic relief character. If I had to put money on any character lasting all the way to the end that was Mei or Kouichi then it would be Teshigawara.
Those girls sure wanted to die this episode. As soon as it showed them walking home together it was super obvious they were the next deaths. One of them lived however and now she gets to live with a crane sticking out of her house.
What gets to me most is that this “curse” has been going on for over 20 years and yet the authorities have yet to realise. Sure they all get the lame amnesia thing but surely someone would have caught on that lot of high school students die every year randomly. Proof of this is that Kouichi’s grandfather mentioned a lot of funerals at the begining of the story but that is yet to be acted upon.
Now to the tape recorder. It acted as a way for the writer to explain some more grisly deaths without killing off actually students. In typical horror mystery style the tape gets predictable cut off half a second before the details are explained.
The preview didn’t show much so i’m not sure what to expect next week but oh well I guess it will be a surprise.
