** We also see very little of Harumi's life after she moved into her new apartment with her husband. Maria may have never left, but Little Slugger's involvement made Harumi completely ignore her other personality. From Harumi's perspective, she's cured, but from her husband's perspective, she's not.

** She mentions never wanting to be left behind (to the point of sharing a bath with her two male friends in the bathhouse) and wanting to go far, far away, especially by train. She also never tries to contact anyone (whether family or other friends) while with her two friends, and, when Fuyubachi brings up several ways to commit suicide after the scene in the train-station, she rejects all of them for cosmetic or comfort-related reasons (ex. she doesn't want her shirt to get wet, she wants her corpse to look nice, she refuses to eat cut-up cigarettes seemingly because she finds them gross or unappetizing, etc.). My interpretation is that she is incredibly lonely, has no friends outside of her suicide pact, and does NOT want to go home for any reason. Why is feels this way is unknown; she may have a terrible life at home, she may experience bullying and/or abuse, her family may neglect her, she may not have a stable home, etc. In any case, she does not want to commit suicide per se, but she doesn't want to be alone anymore. As long as she has her two friends around, she becomes very picky about how she wants to die (she may not even want to die when they're around), but all her friends want to die, so she does, too. She doesn't want to left behind and alone again, even if keeping up with her friends means joining a suicide pact with them.

** From an in-story perspective, that's probably his school craft project. Earlier in the episode we see Yuichi looking at his own craft project (a model robot) which has been broken, on a shelf with a poster saying 'take your craft projects home today'. The first time the shelf appears numerous other items that Yuichi's classmates presumably made and took home before Yuichi got to his are displayed on it.

***It's the line Shounen Bat says to Tsukiko near the beginning of the series, pitched up and repeated: "Tadaima." Welcome home.

** The reporter Kawazu was shown. Many of the same complaining background characters from the first as well. This adds some hope to the survival of other main and secondary characters.

* Who exactly died? The only characters the we know live are Tsukiko, Maniwa (maybe), and Ikari. Were the other characters not as important, or did they stay dead?

** Maromi has a spiritual successor in Konya, a dandelion-colored cat. Stuff like "I don't want to do that" is reminiscent of the first episode; it's a showcase of Japanese people avoiding their responsibilities. The point is that nothing has actually changed; once the Lil' Slugger/Maromi commotion was over, people just found another form of escapism.
