* At the end of the Japanese version, Mima speaks in Rumi's voice and you can tell she's really Rumi by looking at her hair. This brings up so many questions. Why would they release Rumi if she's still crazy? Was the Rumi she saw in the mental ward actually Mima and she's hallucinating that Mima is her? Has Mima gone crazy too?

** Any explanation of the bag of bloody clothes needs to account for the fact that, immediately afterward, we learn that Mima's apartment door is chained on the inside, and she's the only one in there.

** I suspect this was deliberately left ambiguous so that ''any'' of these explanations might fit and Rumi or Mima [[MindScrew or both]] might have committed the murder. This particular murder also helps set up a final ambiguity in the last scene, which looks like it's a HappyEnding... [[TheEndOrIsIt but might not be]]: if Mima really is the murderer, then that's something like a PsychoticSmirk we're seeing at the end.

**Remember how Rumi was driven to tears when she witnessed the rape scene? Everything before that point she was wildly opposed to the idea of Mima acting and being in sleazy scenes. After that however she is no longer opposed to the acting career or even the nude photo shoot. She even seems rather supportive of it. So I think the fact that she seemed so calm and normal after that point is because witnessing the graphic rape scene broke her mind.

* How was it Rumi was acting so normal up until the end if she was that delusional?

*** That scene was a bit unnerving for me. When Mima was crying, I wondered if it was going to go wrong. I suppose in a way it did.
