So it’s all over. I was wrong about who the dead person was but I already knew that because some jerk spoiled me last week.
It was Reiko in case you didn’t know. Reiko being the dead person is like pizza being counted as a vegetable. It shouldn’t be and we all know it. To fit with everything the series spouted in conversation it should have been a student. Sure they cover their tracks by saying there is not enough desks in the teachers office but that just feels cheap.
Enough about Reiko I want to talk about my guesses. Akazawa and Kazami both turned out to be crazy murders so at least I wasn’t 100% wrong. Akazawa almost ruins Kouichi’s perfect ending by killing Mei. This is avoided which means that not a single important character died. Well except Akazawa she gets killed by glass rain. It’s about time someone got killed by falling glass because it happens all the time.
Interesting side not which is a spoiler for the novel if you ever plan on reading it. Akazawa doesn’t die in the novel. She is rescued in the foyer and realizes she was acting crazy. Now I’m not sure if Kazami died or not but either way he is kind of screwed because he murdered two of the random girls.
Speaking of random girls only one survived, she was wearing yellow and managed to do a very graceful swan dive from a second story window and live. The other person i’m glad lived is the librarian. He went bad ass on the crazy women and saved boh Teshigawara and Mochizuki at the same time.
One thing that’s not going to be explained is why Mei the ability to see death. Lucky it’s not really that important.
Considering I was spoiled I still really enjoyed the last episode of Another and the series as a whole. It ends up at 54/153 on my top anime list.
