Hm… I wonder.
I thought this episode was decent, although my standards may just be dropping.
My theory from a couple weeks ago was that the main character was dead. This episode considered that possibility, and it’s still somewhat inconclusive, but it seems that he isn’t dead. I do appreciate the fact that they actually addressed this, however.
This episode managed to fulfill my wish for more Izumi.
I’m not really sure I buy her method of holding hands to determine whether someone is dead or not though.
Haha he Died
The deaths continue to be ridiculous and gratuitous in their use of blood.
I’ve been fortunate enough to never see someone’s throat slit, but I doubt the blood spurts all over the room like that. I imagine it would be quite traumatizing to witness, but I’m not sure why Kouichi and Mei were the only notes not to run out of the room. Well, whatever.
Even Izumi is in shock.
Oh, and I liked Kouichi’s dream sequence. It was the most legitimately creepy part of the show so far. It was still somewhat ridiculous, but hey, it’s better than random doll parts.
