** One thing to keep in mind about the curse is just what lengths will be gone to to keep continuing the cycle. The curse as we see it finds all number of loopholes to prevail. Perhaps the memory loss would affect Mei and those close to her the most, preventing them from easily using this solution. Any records they leave for themselves might be more censored because of how easy it would be. Mei herself could be made to think something like her eye is completely useless, and will not question it due to the curse's contrivance.

* The {{Asspull}} of Mei's Doll Eye somehow being able to see The Color Of Death, which she says makes it easier for her to recognize who the dead/Extra Person is. If she can tell it so easily, why didn't she take her eyepatch off, look at everyone in the classroom and [[spoiler:[[WhyDontYouJustShootHim tell them that Ms Reiko had the Color Of Death around her, so she was likely the Extra Person]]]]? Yes, it was alluded to this maybe being a thing earlier (with Mei taking her eyepatch off while saying goodbye to Kouichi, implying she was using this to check on him), but if this was something she knew, why wasn't it used earlier? Of course, it would have severely shortened the suspense and plot, but if they don't want this to be mentioned, don't add something like this.

** Also, why doesn't she just tell everyone who the Extra is? Is it simply not to hurt [[spoiler:Kouichi's feelings]]? Or is it because she thinks that the students won't believe her? Her reasoning behind [[spoiler:Reiko]] being the Extra is sound and very thought-out, implying that she had been suspicious of [[spoiler:her]] for some time.

** Probably, but imagine trying to explain the Curse to the city council or whatever civic board is in charge of the schools as a reason to destroy a structure worth millions of dollars. Of course, an enterprising person could try arson to so so, but the Curse may try and stop them. For all we know, someone has tried to destroy the building and failed.

*** Sure it does. The poster above you was arguing that someone else in the class already considered Koichi the Extra and had already began {{Unperson}}ing him, making the question "what would they have done?" pointless. Presumably they would've immediately turned around, left the hospital room, and started ignoring him in exactly the same way, but slightly earlier.

*** Sure it does. The poster above you was arguing that someone else in the class already considered Koichi Since no one knew killing the Extra was the solution, the preferred method was to ignore the extra. Even though Sakuragi had her doubts, Kazami suspected Koichi and had already began begun {{Unperson}}ing him, making the him when he arrived in class. The question "what would they have done?" done if Koichi gave them reason to suspect him in the hospital?" is pointless. Presumably they would've immediately turned around, left the hospital room, and started ignoring him in exactly the same way, but slightly earlier.

*** Saying it was already set in motion doesn't answer the question at all.

* If the Curse only affects a certain school, and a certain classroom, when not just bulldoze or torch the school. If the entire friggin' school is gone, wouldn't that solve the problem?
