Headscratchers / The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon

Why doesn't the Ginosaji use a silver spoon?

"Gin no saji" is Japanese for "silver spoon". In Save Jack: The Interactive Adventure, an electromagnet is used to pull the spoons away from the Ginosaji. Silver isn't ferrous, so a silver spoon wouldn't be attracted to an electromagnet. Even after losing all of his ferrous spoons, he pulls out a wooden one instead of a silver one.
  • Silver is too soft a metal to be used as weapon, it would just fall apart.

Ginosaji's implacability.

Okay... this is bugging me: it has been shown that, despite healing incredibly fast (or not being affected by the wound at all), Ginosaji can still be damaged, so... what happens if you cut off his arms and/or legs? I doubt he can actually regrow then, so... wouldn't it be the way out?

Sorry if this was already answered in some point of the series, I didn't watch then all yet, if it was, just point out when.
  • I'm pretty sure the Ginosaji just doesn't LET Jack maim him. He attempted it once in the trailer with the buzz-saw and, well, you saw how that turned out.
  • He doesn't still have the throat or crotch injuries in subsequent scenes, so presumably he would grow back his arms, or the force of the attack would simply fail to remove them in the first place.
  • I imagine that the Ginosaji has a combination of Reality Warper and Adaptive Ability. If he needs to be immortal, suddenly he's immortal. If he needs to have extra spoons, suddenly he has extra spoons. If his victim tries to commit suicide by jumping off a building, a fat person is suddenly warped into being to break the victimís fall.
  • As the Ginosaji doesn't appear in every scene (When Jack tries to convince the medic, with the old woman...), it's possible it's not a single corporeal being but something akin to a ghost, so if (by chance) it gets its body mutilated, it simply backs off for a moment and then appears like new.
  • The kickstarter trailer for the feature length film shows that if the arms were cut off (Jack cuts one off with a chainsaw in a scene) they would move about on their own like a zombie. A later scene has the Ginosaji with both arms again, showing that it reattached it. In theory, Jack could cut the Ginosaji to pieces (either through continued use of said chainsaw before he pulls himself together, or by throwing him into something like a human sized meat grinder), but he has not tried that.


Just what the hell did Jack do to deserve any of this?
  • Nothing. Whatever God cursed him was just an utter dick.
  • Or the Ginosaji simply picks his victims at complete random. The only difference between him and anyone else is a simple spin of the wheel.
  • Jack being a forensic pathologist, itís probably the Ginosaji is some kind of revenge wraith of someone whose autopsy didn't go well or something like that.

How is Jack surviving?
In the last episode of Ginosaji vs. Ginosaji, Jack is stranded in the Gobi Desert. How in god's name does he not die of heatstroke or starvation or dehydration?
  • The Ginosaji obviously gives him shade and water occasionally. While hitting him with a spoon.
  • Why doesn't Jack Duct Tape a spoon to his hand to avoid it getting knocked off? Or learning spoon bending from Uri Geller and bend all the spoons?
    • The Ginosaji would prevent the ducktaping. Also, Uri Geller is not a real psychic so spoon-bending could not be learned from him.

  • What is that noise at 5:08? During the "...again, and again, and again..." sequence there's a weird MWA MWA that sounds like the adults from Charlie Brown.

What happens when Jack is in front of other people?
I can think of three possibilities, all of which seem to save Jack:
  • The ginosaji follows him and is still visibly hitting him with a spoon, in which case you'd think any non-psychopath would try to make him stop.
  • The ginosaji turns invisible and keeps hitting Jack, which you'd think would still make people suspicious when bruises started appearing out of nowhere.
  • The ginosaji temporarily stops, in which case all Jack has to do is spend the rest of his life in public places.
