Additionally, the curse they cause is also a misguided attempt to bring themselves back to life. They hope that the person killed will be treated like they were alive just like Misaki was, hence creating another slot for a ghost to impersonate a living person. However, this is just not the case so these deaths just keep happening for no seemingly no reason.

This is also why the extra student is never killed in any year, as mentioned by Katsumi since his year is the ONLY year that ended short because he killed the extra. The dead student is a ghost themselves and is not affected by the misfortune.

[[WMG: The curse is accidentally caused by ghosts trying to fit themselves into Class 3]]
In eastern cultures, the presence of a ghost is usually tied to causing bad luck. In the beginning, because the class refused to acknowledge Misaki's death, they were creating an environment where ghosts were welcome and treated like they were alive again. The class becomes a beacon for all ghosts, piling up all of their misfortune in this one single class. By killing the extra student or ignoring them, the class essentially sends a message to all the ghosts stalking the class that they are not welcome, hence why the ghosts leave and the curse is lifted.

* The "extra" is either a familiar of hers, or perhaps just an entity created whole-cloth from her powers, assuming the form and personality of one of the class members' recently deceased relatives appearing every 26 years, in recognition of the 26 students in the girl's class. And the ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi Higurashi]]''-esque (ahem) WitchHunt at the end of Episode 11 was [[Manga/DeathNote just as planned]] by the Incubators, knowing the scared, suspicious students would likely suspect a quiet girl like Mei, who would also have possibly made a contract.

** [[spoiler: The reason for the weirdness around him and his family is that the Extra is related to him.]]









[[WMG: The Students new all along who the extra was.]]

to:

[[WMG: The Students new knew all along who the extra was.]]















An earlier WMG states that it isn't really a curse because it bears no actual malice. I believe it does - the point of the curse is to draw upon the ugliness of human nature. It's a curse specifically designed to seem like it just happens, that there's no real reason for it, to make the ensuing panic even stronger. What's worse? - knowing that your class is cursed, and by knowing that, knowing there's a way to lift the curse, or that horrific death is just going to happen for no good reason. The ability of the curse to seem more like a force of nature causes the people of Yomiyama even more pain. Not only are the students of Class 3 constantly in fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones, it draws out their suspicions of those different from them, because anyone could be the Extra. It takes away their compassion and their value of human life, and ultimately drives them either insane with fear or to murder. The curse is not only a curse, but more malicious than anyone in Class 3 realizes.

[[WMG: Possible ideas to get rid of the Curse, and what might happen if they tried them:]]
* Have the school have a class 3-3 on the roster but don't put anyone in it. That way class 3-4 really is 3-4 and not 3-3 under a different name.
** Ways this could go horribly wrong: the Curse/universe might react to having a whole class that doesn't really exist by making a whole class of Extras.
* Have the entire school/town gather at the start of each year before the class rosters are made and symbolically "kill" and bury an effigy of the dead student to acknowledge that he's dead. Only put people in class 3-3 that were there.
** Ways this could go horribly wrong: Since this is a horror game, they would probably come up with the idea that they had to use an actual student as the effigy and kill them when they could just use a doll or something.
* Have the entire class of the original 3-3 that started the curse gather and acknowledge that Misaki was DeadAllAlong.
* Add or subtract at least 5 people to the roster of 3-3 and hope the imbalance confuses the curse enough to stop it from doing anything.
* Add Misaki's name to 3-3's roster every year and then cross it out. So the class has an extra person on the roster who is already acknowledged to be dead and not actually in the class.
* Keep Mei/ people like her on staff so they can immediately identify and eliminate the Extra.

She treats Mei like one of her dolls and the doll's eye can see things that should remain unseen. Somehow Mei persuaded her to give her one dolls eye. The reason why it's not a button? She switched from stuffed dolls to glass eyed ones.

It wasn't until she told Kouichi "Believe me." That he didn't deliver the [[spoiler: killing blow to Reiko.]] The voice it self sounded a tad hypnotic and if she can see [[spoiler: the color of death.]] What's to say her eye can't do other things.

Much of the credits show all the people happy except Mei who is disappearing. This is pretty much Izumi imagining what life would be like without Mei. She dislikes Mei and believes that everyone would have survived and be better off without Mei.
