*** 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.

** 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.

*** 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.

* So, apologizing for questioning the logic horror stories, after the terror sets in some things still bug me in regards to the inner logic of JunjiIto works. For example...

*** The point of that other transformation was to show why all the other parents burned their doll children, since as the main characters point out, having your child turn into a doll IS both heartbreaking and horrifying, but would also allow them to keep the memory of their child forever. But the transformation kept going...


Added DiffLines:

** Its hinted that he might be the spirit of the child that died along with the woman that the main character accidently got to kill herself while playing the fortune telling game, but like a lot of Ito's stories, there's no real explanation for it.


Added DiffLines:

** Shirakawa was unfortunate enough to be associated with the women who mocked Sonobe, and I dont think Sonobe was all that choosy with her revenge.

*** Another example is in ''Orphan Girl'' where an elderly couple adopt Tomie as a daughter. They both view her as a daughter and succumb to her charm, ending up attached and obsessed with her.



* This troper would like to bring up something about the Hanging Balloons. You can't conceivably fight them without killing someone or even yourself, I get it, but... why didn't it ever occur to anyone to simply find something sharp and cut off the noose from each balloon? Wouldn't that solve the issue of not damaging the balloons yet not dying?

* I don't get it, in the Bronze Statue: Ms. Shirakawa just moved in the neighborhood. Why did that "old hag" Madame Sonobe target her as well. Shirakawa is the least at fault for mocking her. In fact Shirakawa didn't even laugh and mock her.

* Ok, I have a bit of problem accepting one of the aspects of the series ''Manga/{{Gyo}}''. Don't get me wrong, it's a great manga and downright disturbing. But, there's a tiny problem with the story's logic (not counting the ones that can be explained by RuleOfCoole or RuleOfScary). At one point in the story, a walker-powered whale shows up before it instantly collapses under its weight. Ok, fine, SquareCubeLaw and everything. But, later in the series [[spoiler: '''huge''' towering machines are seen walking about powered by massive piles or corpses]]. How? It's shown that the gas-inducing bacteria bloats the victims and increases their mass. If that is the case, then this would mean the infected humans are heavier than they were before becoming zombies (as evident when Kaori collapsed after trying to hang herself when she became infected). Therefore, huge piles of infected people would way hundreds, if not thousands of pounds (even if you don't take the gas into consideration, a lot of humans is quite heavy). How is it that these walkers cannot support a whale, yet can support mountains of farting zombies?
