Added DiffLines:
* ShipperOnDeck: Teshigawara is the most obvious with his shipping of Mei and Koichi, but Mochizuki has a habit of leaving the two together, and near the end of the novel Koichi's narration outright suspects he's giving them some quiet time alone.

* SoundOnlyDeath: [[spoiler: Mizuno's]] death is done like this in the novel, due to it being completely from Koichi's point of view. We only hear the horrific sounds through his phone, and later find out what actually happened.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* GenreSavvy: ** Everyone becomes visibly tense in Episode 8 as they approach the city limits and a huge tanker truck passes them on the highway, as if they expect the curse to suddenly flare up the second before they leave Yomiyama. ** Kouichi's also quick to adapt to the circumstances around the curse and even wonders very early on if Mei is a ghost or not. This gets mixed in with a bit of WrongGenreSavvy, but he never wastes time thinking "[[FlatEarthAtheist This is impossible.]]"

* AccidentalMurder: ** Katsumi Matsunaga accidentally killed a student in his class when they were fighting during the summer trip. [[spoiler: The kid turned out to be the extra student, thus making Matsunaga realise what had to be done to lift the curse.]] ** [[spoiler: Teshigawara accidentally almost killed Kazami after accusing him of being the extra student. Subverted as Kazami survived the accident.]]

In fact, she's not even Mei's (biological) mother.]] ** The school administration is not very helpful with preventing the curse, putting a transfer student in class 3-3 (resulting in the class's initial PoorCommunicationKills problem) and making Ms. Mikami the assistant homeroom teacher (she had already had a harrowing experience as class 3-3's homeroom teacher two years prior). Justified for the latter; [[spoiler:she's the extra person and ''has'' to be in the class, even if FakeMemories result in a backstory that would make the homeroom teacher appointment seem unwise]].

* AlmostDeadGuy: Subverted in the death of [[spoiler: Takabayashi, who was basically fine until he started telling Kouichi some important information, then he was suddenly KilledMidSentence by a heart attack.]]

** Zigzagged. [[spoiler:Mr. Kubodera ''pulls a kitchen knife'' on the students in an attempt to fight off the curse. Instead he just kills himself with the knife, but then it turns out that he killed his mother long beforehand.]]

* {{Irony}}: Semi-meta example. The perpetually-cloudy setting and morbid students let off an atmosphere of NothingIsScarier, but the ending credits provide a stark contrast: everyone is in a beautiful mansion with large windows that let in the light of the sunny day outside. They're all smiling and seem to be relaxed, and Mei is outside on a balcony, looking at the GhibliHills that surround the mansion.

* LetThemDieHappy: Subverted. [[spoiler:Kouichi got the opportunity to make Izumi happy in death by lying and telling her that he did remember their first meeting but Kouichi got hit by BrutalHonesty and told her "no." Izumi even lampshades this by calling him mean and telling him he was supposed to lie before she died.]]

* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: Subverted. A lot of the deaths could actually be counted as accidents, bizarre and unlikely as they are, if they had happened individually. But the fact that these deaths occur so alarmingly frequently, and sometimes even ''simultaneously'', is what makes it obvious that this is not the case.

* RedEyesTakeWarning: Mei. [[spoiler: Subverted, since underneath her emotionless persona, she's actually a NiceGirl.]]

** [[spoiler: Junta Nakao's demise]] is very reminiscent of {{Jaws}}. Though it nearly subverted as [[spoiler: the boat chopped him up, it was an aneurism that killed him, before he was hit.]]

* TomatoSurprise: The fact that [[spoiler: his aunt Reiko and his teacher Ms. Mikami are the same person]] is not a secret to Kouichi, but the anime hides it from the audience until the final episode, making it harder to connect the dots leading to [[spoiler:the "Extra"'s identity]].

** We also have an example of an inverse of this trope in the series. When the boys go in search of a clue to how to end the calamity, they decide not to tell anyone about what they are doing. Except they run into Yumi Ogura and Aya Ayano along the way and fill them in on their intentions. [[spoiler: If they has stuck to their guns, Ogura would never have let that information slip to Izumi and Takako, which would prevent them listening to the tape and inspiring an unhinged Takako from making a general announcement that inspires half the class to try and kill Mei at the climax of the series.]]

** [[spoiler: Takako]]'s death in the anime. A fire from earlier in the episode wells up and create an explosion from the backdraft, which destroys some of the building's foundations.
