One of the many potential ways to die is to be so startled by a ringing phone that Aki smacks her head hard enough on the wall to be killed. It's just so random!
Many potentially creepy deaths are ruined by limited default death animation. See Narm on the YMMV page.
When Aki has to help Yoshino in the Truth ending, if you try to use the salt to stop Misao, Aki decides that she "can't do something as awful as sprinkle her with salt". She apparently thinks using the baseball bat to stop her is perfectly okay, though!
