* The corridor Mima walks down where she accidentally bumps into Eri, who sees her off with some rather ominous words. As Mima is about to continue walking, she spots a familiar person slowly approaching her from down the corridor...who appears to be [[OhCrap Me-Mania]]. Mima then quickly looks for Eri from the other end of the corridor, only to see that she has vanished. She then turns around...[[JumpScare and immediately comes face to face with her stalker who quickly grabs her head, which is then accompanied with the sound of a boot from a car slamming loudly]].

Added DiffLines:

*** Or that Mima is still delusional -- now she thinks she herself is Rumi believing she's Mima. And since she ''is'' Mima, she can fake being "the real thing" ''perfectly'', with no one the wiser.

** In the Japanese version, it's implied the Mima we see in the rear-view mirror at the end is actually Rumi, still delusional and now free to possibly kill again.

*** It's ind of minor, but the sheer lack of concern her former bandmates show about Mima meeting the leery photographer. It makes the invasive nature of the media seem 'normal', and that's a message that still resonates.

* ALTRNATE IDEA: Perhaps most of the movie actually describes Rumi's delusions. Rumi is the one with alternate personalities. I suggest perhaps that Rumi may have not just the Pure-Mima personality, but also her own version of mima, Rumi-Mima. Perhaps the scenes where Mima hallucinates it is truly Rumi that has a battle between her multiple personalities. Then many of the scenes depicting Mima may be Rumi's own real-Mima personality. Its an open question if the stalker is also one of Rumis personalities. Remember that towards the end, actual Mima isnt really fooled by Rumi's outfit (just chocked). And how to conclude this; In the end, in Rumis copy apartment, I see the fish in the fish tank being (still) dead. This must mean that the scene where Mima cry after the rape-shoot is in fact Rumi crying. But we just see it from Rumis twisted perspective.
