** In addition, who knows how many girls that B★GS [[spoiler:Saya]] has been sending against B★RS/Mato before this? She screws up their heads, creates an Otherself; sics it on B★RS who kills it (and likely kills Mato's memory of any unpleasantness). Mato's High School years must have been filled with girls freaking out at her; then the next day nobody remembers anything. [[spoiler:Saya]] justified it in feeling that the erasure was ultimately cleansing for the girls.

* The fact that it is possible for a girl's life on Earth to become ''so'' horrible between the abuse, the bullying and the depression that an existence of eternal, unthinking battle in a nightmarish Otherworld would be ''a relief''.

** [[spoiler: You can interpret every single BRS sequence (minus the first fight) - or the last part, when B★RS breaks the chains and gives the CoolDownHug - as a flash forward to after Mato found the cellphone charm at the very end.]]
** [[spoiler: Neither B★RS nor Dead Master were trying to kill each other. Dead Master would have been perfectly happy keeping B★RS in chains (so she can never leave her ''or'' not get too close), and observe how during the fight B★RS slowly [[WreckedWeapon destroys all of Dead Master's weapons; her floating skulls; her scythe, and then her chains]], before doing the CoolDownHug. Her bullets also never hit Dead Master.]]
** The checked patterns in the Otherworld [[spoiler: might be a reference to the checkered walls outside Mato's school, or the checkered wall next to the hill or the checkered pattern in Mato's house, etc.]]. The constantly recurring ★ motif [[spoiler: is a reference to all the stars Mato has in her room and on her clothes]]. In short, [[spoiler: all the Otherworld battles can be interpreted as a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind]]. [[spoiler: Or maybe their school is the [[{{Persona3}} Tartarus]]]].
*** In the TV series, the direct effects of the real world on the Otherworld are more noticeable. Easier details to miss include the swarm of spiders appearing in Kagari's world ''after'' she gets a kick out of a nature documentary. Showing a [[EnfanteTerrible dog eaten by ants]].
** From the 2012 anime: [[spoiler:Yuu-as-Strength's line: "You're not running away from your problems. But who is?" The line just sounds like part of Yuu's insane rants, but in fact, she's referring to ''herself'' - a girl who, rather than simply trying to help others with their own problems and shouldering hers, ran away from the real world to isolate herself in the Otherworld.]]

* The lyrics of the theme song in the 2012 anime refer to the Otherselves assigned to the characters: "How much longer should I continue shouting?", which are Mato's attempts to become friends with people.

[[spoiler:is what Kagari ultimately needs to do; she can't just run away from the world anymore]]. "The world of dreams that I once saw is shutting down." reflects [[spoiler:Saya's attempts to stop B★RS's rampage]].
