Agreed. Anyone know how many episodes this is slated for? The best I could come up with via googling is 12, which is only 2 more (plus an Episode 0 to come) and that would make me sad.

Yeah, it's only supposed to be a 12 episode series.

Well now,
Spoiler :
that was a great bloodshed if I've ever seen one.
Some of the reactions were kinda off though.
A: I might have just killed a guy...
B: Let's go check if he's alive.
A&B proceed to walk at the pace of a anemic turtle.
And we still don't know who the dead person is. This is driving me crazy *twitch*

Yeah, that struck me as a little odd too.

I think that should have been in spoiler tags (I say that as I had read your post before I had a chance to see the episode).

Anyhow, this episode really cements in my mind what I'd been thinking for a while now; that this is the best show this season.

Spoiler :
By how the episode ended & Misaki's reaction, I'm kind of wondering if Tokako was who Misaki thought was dead. Furthermore, I was kind of thinking that since there were two extra students, could it be that there are two dead students as well?


By the way,
Spoiler :
I'm just wondering if I missed something, but were there any particularly overt reasons the resort owner's wife went off the deep end or does it fall under the same heading as the teacher going berserk?

Truth. Fixed it. To be perfectly honest though I was very much expecting
Spoiler :
for the mystery to be revealed in the very last episode

I was wondering about that too.
Spoiler :
Maybe the lady had some relationship with one of the previous no. 3 classes/was witness to the previous events and meeting the current class was just too much so she snapped.

Spoiler :
Well it could have been revealed near the end of the episode and then the last episode would be trying to knock off the dead person.

When Takako

Screamed: KILL HER!
I couldn't stop laughing. :rofl:

But still...
Spoiler :
You gotta admit that chanting "return the dead back to death" was utterly cliché. :roll:


And I still think Mei is...

Spoiler :
Wow, loved this week's episode. It's like "Everyone's Makoto" from School Days, except replace the sex with gruesome, violent death. I think my favorite was Ogura falling out of the window, and that glorious splat.

I'm still upset that we only have 1 episode left. I'm gonna miss this show.

I just git caught up today; this show was a surprise and a half, to be honest! I didn't find the beginning entirely stimulating, but the story got REALLY good and I have generally liked all of the characters.
The only part I haven't enjoyed has been the plot device they've pulled with having
Spoiler :
Mei being able to see the color of death on people. Not only would she have been able to tell who the dead person was A LOT sooner, but it was kind of left field and extremely sudden.
I almost want to say it was something the writers put in so that they could end the show well, but I haven't read the manga so I really don't know. I was hoping initially that
Spoiler :
there was nothing special about her eye. At the start, my prayers for answered! She had surgery when she was younger,and so she received an artificial eye: the end. Then we learn that it has powers.
I dunno, I'm just tired of this cliche when the original idea was actually kind of realistic.

But I really am enjoying the show so far; can't wait for the next episode, even if it's the last.

It would be so romantically tragic if
Spoiler :
the mansion started burning down, Mei gets all sad and suicidal from guilt, Kouichi hugs her and starts slow dancing in a burning room, and as the room collapses, they lean in...

That would be a rather beautiful way to end this series. I wanted more character development!!!!!!!
