I'm enjoying this so far. The creepiness is a bit over the top though.
Now I want to read the manga, but it hasn't been fully translated yet :/

I really liked Mizuno. Why the hell can't they just tell him what's going on? FFS!

Spoiler :
looks like this show is gonna be a 12 episode version of "Final Destination" mixed with "The Omen".....and I LOVE IT!

GOD DAMN! this show is crazy. And I guess that the death of the nurse also means the death of her cousin.

Spoiler :
The fact that she was gonna die was obvious ever since she said that she had brother in that class but I thought that they would wait at least till episode 7 so that it could be taken as a trigger to some kind of panic attack... I don't think they'd make him go mad in ep 5 :)

just awesome :)

Spoiler :
Yeah, pretty obvious who was next, especially since she was so open with information, and trying to pry info out of her brother. I'm waiting for Izumi to get more involved, I have a feeling once she spills the beans and enlists the help of the MC that things are going to get really nasty. A bit less forced drama would be nice, but I'm still quite interested!

And now, everything makes sense.
Spoiler :
I really thought that Misaki was a ghost :lol: I kinda feel that the show just lost some of its charm though. But since this means that we get to see more of Misaki, I guess that its a fair trade.

Anyway, those other students were pretty dense. How the hell was he supposed to follow the rules even though nobody told him what they were! They definitely could have given him better hints. And since he is now confirming Misaki's existence, and Misaki is confirming his, I don't think that anything has been resolved.

Truth.
Spoiler :
This whole situation, where he's supposed to follow the rules he has no idea about kind of reminds of this:

And you may have a point. Since they both know they exist, it kind of ruins the purpose of them being treated as if they don't exist. The guy who told Koichi to go talk to Mei may have just signed the class' death warrant.

in other words.....whoever gave him that note...is probably next. In "Another", no good deed ever goes unpunished :asd:

Finally caught up on this show. First 2 eps were slow and creepy; by the end of episode 3 I was hooked. However after watching episode 5 I'm really impressed. Loving this show a LOT.

Spoiler :
Haha, Sakakibara had some nice dreams of trolling the whole school together with Mei.
Also, the teacher finally snaps and apparently goes apeshit. The only question is does he kill himself or someone else. My bet would be the former. Probably someone will try to stop him and get mortally wounded along the way, so we'll be having two bodybags next episode.

I was really upset when I realized he was just dreaming and that wasn't really happening. Although from what the librarian said that might have gotten everyone killed.

I really like how they subtly show the date every so often, keeping everyone reminded that "Hey, it's July now so the clock is ticking for our next death".
I haven't been anticipating the new episode of an anime this much since Haruhi S1.
