* StrawManHasaPoint: During the dinner confrontation at the Inn in the novel, Takako's sole real contribution to the narrative is to suggest, had Kouichi not stopped to talk to Mei, or at least, had Yukari not ''seen'' the two of them flagrantly breaking the rules, she wouldn't have panicked and [[spoiler: fallen to her death running the other way.]] Kouichi himself admits she probably has a point there. Interestingly, despite having a much larger role in the anime, this scene is ''not'' [[PetTheDog present (it's referred to earlier by Aya, but only insofar as to mention Takako saw Yukari's death, but that's it).]]

** It was apparently deemed graphic enough for [[spoiler: Takako to be shown in close up twice with her eyes bulging out of her skull that the upper half of her head is sensored whenever her body is shown.]]

* GroinAttack: Kouichi gets one from [[spoiler: Takako]] in Episode 11. He gets another one from [[spoiler: Izumi]] in almost the exact same place for more or less the exact same reason in the finale.

** There's also Makoto Ouji in Episode 11. [[spoiler:Teshigawa and Mochizuki both warn him and his friend Saruta about the fire in the dining room. So what's the first thing Makoto does when he leaves his room? Checks the dining room, of course!]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: In episode 10 [[spoiler: Izumi forces Mei to "apologize" for this year's calamity]] even though Kouichi, Teshigawara and Mochisuki call her out on how pointless it was. To be fair, Mei's attitude up to this point, where it appears her negligence has caused the Calamity to start in the first place, doesn't make it seem like this way to the rest of the class; to them, Mei's a selfish sociopath who doesn't care the rests of them are dying because of a mistake she made.

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

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** Kouichi describes Teruya's Lakeshore Manor as looking like the house from ''The Amityville Horror.'' Mei, characteristically, doesn't get the reference.

* ParentalAbandonment: Kouichi's father is a professor who's currently in India (leaving him in the care of his grandmother) while his mother passed away while giving birth to him. Mei stays at her aunt's house while her father's in Germany.

** The novel also features Naoya Mochizuki, Yuuya's twin brother who, while never shown, shares his name with Kouichi's closest male friend. ''Another S'' stars Teruya Sakaki, whose real name is the same as Naoya's nickname for Koichi; Mei describes him to Kouichi as "the other Sakaki."
* ParentalAbandonment: Kouichi's father is a professor who's currently in India (leaving him in the care of his grandmother) while his mother passed away while giving birth to him. Mei stays at her aunt's house while her father's in Germany. Likewise, in ''Another S'', both of Teruya's parents died suddenly within a few years of each other, leaving him their sole heir.

* GirlishPigtails: Izumi.

to:

* GirlishPigtails: Izumi. Takako has them in the manga and film; Sayuri is a carbon copy of Takako from the former, and so she also has these.

* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: The kind of catastrophic ElevatorFailure depicted is ''very'' unlikely because of the multiple safety mechanisms in modern elevators. In the first place, there are usually multiple hoist cables, which can individually hold up the car's entire weight and collectively hold up multiple times the car's weight. It would take a ''real'' freak accident to sever them all at once. If the computer controlling the elevator detects anything unsafe, it will shut off the motor and apply the brakes, which include both a clamp that closes on the pulley above the car, and safety brakes underneath the car that jam a metal brake into the guide rails along which the elevator travels. Lastly, there is a set of counterweights on the opposite end of the cables that attatch to the car, which weigh slightly more than an empty car and slightly more than a full car, so that even if every other safety system failed the ascent or descent would accelerate only slowly, and the car would eventually come to a rough but hopefully survivable stop. Whatever the case, the elevator would not immediately plunge uncontrolled down the shaft in the manner depicted just from some cables snapping. Granted, a supernatural curse could contrive such a catastrophic failure across multiple systems, but the police talk as if the cables snapping was the only thing that caused the accident.

* DemotedToExtra: Kazami in the anime. Despite being one of Kouchi's friends and a member of the mystery-solving gang in the manga, he's pretty much sent off-screen after the beginning of the anime. [[Spoiler: And then he starts killing people.]] In a literal sense, [[spoiler: Chibiki]] becomes this in the film adaptation.
