* When Koichi asks Mei why the doll looks a lot like her, Mei tells him [[spoiler: her mom based it off her sister who died a stillborn.]] But we later find out [[spoiler: Kirika didn't have any children and that Mei was adopted]]. So what exactly was Kirika basing the looks off of? Considering [[spoiler: they are not blood related]], it's strange that it looks a lot like Mei.

* If people within Yokohama are affected by it (which was further proven true by the beach episode), why was Koichi's dad memories also altered? Isn't he at India? He's completely out of the country.

** Given the information learned throughout the story, it's likely that [[spoiler: a family member (or in this story's case, a teacher) ''has'' been the Extra before, since there were years where the ignoring of a student didn't work, but nobody recalls it well enough due to the {{RetGone}}d memories resulting in them not remembering that this specific family member was the Extra in connection with the class]].

***Even better, why don't they just reduce the student capacity to double class amount only? Like, stop accepting that many students each year since grade 1.

* Since family members, as well as other people connected to the class, are subject to the curse, [[spoiler:isn't it possible that one of them becomes the extra? The fact that the curse strikes at random and includes these people seems to point to this direction (after all the reality tries to remove the dead by killing them, so family members must be among the "suspects" to be affected). Yet, nobody points it out. Is it because the characters' understanding of the curse is incomplete, or are family members actually never the extra, yet they are affected for some reason?]]

* So, after the entire disaster that happened as a result of the tape being found and people panicking, the surviving students choose to help future classes by... making a new recording with the exact same information? Sure it works well as a sort of narrative bookend, but wouldn't it be better to just sic Mei on future class 3-3s and then take care of things discreetly? Even forgetting about how to solve the curse could be fixed by keeping a recorded summary on hand instead of hiding it and then forgetting where.

*** If the problem is only the third class, why wouldn't they disband all the classes but 3-1 and 3-2 and just stuff all the students into either class? It'll be hard but its still better than kids dying.

* So the class thought Sakakibara was the extra, but does it have anything to do with his surname? in the first episode, one of them refuses to say it and Mei sings it as if taunting him. Just a curiosity.
