*** That's probably just a translation issue.

* What would happen in a Tomie pregnancy? Would she give birth to another Tomie? Or would said Tomie-fetus kill her instead and use her to grow?
* And what if a male got infected by Tomie? Would it be like Yukiko, where a Tomie grows and breaks out of the body, or could the Tomie cells actually alter the body to transform like they can for women?

** Come to think of it, how is it that humans cannot tell the difference between sap and honey? They're two different foods. Yes, both are sweet and come from plants. However, sap is basically "tree blood". Honey, on the other hand, is the [[NauseaFuel lovely mixture of pollen, water, and nectar all mixed together into delicious bee vomit.]] They do have distinctive tastes.

** Who knows, maybe he did that after the last panel, but we're meant to stop there, learning that she's now waiting for him to die, [[RuleOfScary since it's the scariest way possible]] to end the story.

* Right, so, ''Splatter Film'' is a very good plant-based horror story. Not going to deny that. However, there is one aspect about the tree that confounds me (LovecraftianSuperpower teleportation skills aside). We know the "honey" is actually the tree's sap. We know it cannot stand humans attempting to eat said sap, and will smush anything that it catches doing so. That being said, other animals feed on sap. There's birds, insects, other mammals, etc. Yet, this tree seems focused on crushing only humans who attempt to steal its sap and feed on it. Does it not notice other animals? Or, do other animals just not like the taste of the sap?

*** What about the fact that the sticher at the end included the family dog while the off screen stichers all just used people? Isn't that evidence that she's not a part of the original sticher strains that we see?

*** Tomie can be destroyed simply by being "cremated at the highest temperature" apparently, as it is the method used by the Man in Black to dispose of dead Tomies. It is implied that simply burning the body properly with gasoline or the likes would kill her - the fingers regenerated out of the ash simply because a small campfire isn't hot enough to fully cremate a human body.

* ''Anything But a Ghost'' ends with the main character's mistress waiting by his deathbed in the hospital, eagerly awaiting his death so she can devour his ghost. So...why can't the guy just ask the hospital staff to remove his crazy ex-girlfriend from his room? And if she resists, that's what security is for.

*** Perhaps Tomie knows the only way to truly destroy herself and the reason there isn't an army is because she uses the method.

** I'd imagine that their head would probably be snapped off if they cut off the noose. After all, tampering with the balloon would end up in death, so I'm sure one would die if the noose was tampered with. Not to mention it would be extremely difficult to cut off a noose that's trying to strangle you.
