Wow, great way to wrap up the series. Hands down the best show of the season.
Spoiler :
Kouichi had to have something to do with Reiko's original death. It happened a year and a half ago, the same time Akazawa met "Kouichi" before. In both Reiko's death and Akazawa's flashback (where she throws the can) there is the same guy who looks a lot like Kouichi. Then there's the comment his dad made on the phone about being back in Yomiyama after a year and a half.
All in all there's definitely something left unexplained here, which hopefully the prequel episode coming next season will explore.

Is it wrong that I'm laughing so hard at the bloodbath in this episode? :rofl:

Did anyone else notice this:
Spoiler :
Why is it that everyone is getting raped from behind? Seriously, like, four people died because they got killed from behind.

BUT...Something is seriously bugging me about that last part of the mansion scene:
Spoiler :
WHY THE HELL DID KOUICHI GET A PHONE SIGNAL ALL THE WAY OUT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF A LIGHTNING STORM AT THE LAST SECOND?


All-in-all, I love this show. I just wish it had more romance. Season 2 will most likely be more about Mei and her creepy house. Sweet dreams, everybody! :bear:
Almost as hard as fighting a Holy Paladin.

Spoiler :
I assumed that he came to the town a year and a half ago specifically for her funeral. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Izumi Akazawa's brother was the one that killed Reiko. (Especially since they never mentioned how or why he died)

And now that I just read Izumi's and Mikami-Sensai's wiki page, I'm slightly more convinced of this. Izumi's page says http://another.wikia.com/wiki/Izumi_Akazawa

Kazuma Akazawa is Izumi's cousin but they were raised as siblings. Her brother was mentally unstable and often locked himself in his room. He is yet to make an appearance in the anime, although his name was seen in the Class 3-3 list of 1996. At chapter 17 of the manga, Kazuma commits suicide by hanging himself in his room.

and Mikimi-Sensai's page says http://another.wikia.com/wiki/Mikami-Sensei
Originally, she drowned in 1996 when she was the homeroom teacher of Class 3-3.

I don't think that it is a coincidence that she was killed during the year that she had Kazuma Akazawa as a student. And apparently, they both died around the same time since Izumi was still mourning when Kouichi came down for Reiko's/ Mikami-Sensai's funeral. My theory is that Kazuma killed Reiko and then committed suicide due to the guilt. And I think that the last peice of evideoce that supports my theory is that the attacker seemed to be wearing typical school clothes (dress shirt and pants). This is probably why people see similarities between him and Kouichi. Their clothing is almost identical because they're both students of Yomiyama North Middle School

I think that I really solved the mystery this time :awesome:

Might be possible.

episode 0 was awesome :awesome:
Spoiler :
Unfortunately, we all knew she was gonna die at some point, which made it even more horrifying every time something seemed to happen to her. Also, Misaki now makes more sence as an character.. but just a little bit since they told most of it in the anime itself

Misaki sisters' kawaii :awesome:

Damn!...i miss 'another' and i really miss 'misaki'
i do really hope that another season gets released but seriously...they do not have much more to show us
actually they do because :-
they didnt really truly tell us how the calamity occours
the calamity was only stopped for that year...which means the next years 9th class 3 will suffer :uhoh:
Mei still didn't taste Kouchi's cooking :pizza: :taco: ...and well we all want more romance dont we? :asd:
