** For the first one, even if they tried to restrain the ginosaji, it's a supernatural creature who probably can't be held forever - Jack might get a respite, but it won't last. He's outside and getting hit quite often, so I doubt the third one too. I don't see how the second would help: even if people got suspicious, what are they supposed to do about an invisible being attacking someone?

***In the original video, one of the problems is that nobody believes him. Even if they can't help, having people who understand what he's facing would be helpful - and if it is ''confirmed'' as supernatural, it could attract massive amounts of attention that could eventually lead to a solution. After all, if Ginosaji exist, other supernatural things probably exist, too, including more powerful ones.

* 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 CharlieBrown.

** It's a didgeridoo, an Australian musical instrument, to show that he really IS going all over the world in his futile escape attempt.


[[WMG:Why doesn't the Gin no saji 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 Gin no saji. Silver isn't ferrous, so a silver spoon wouldn't be attracted to an electromagnet. Even after loosing all of his ferrous spoons, he pulls out a wooden one instead of a silver one.

[[WMG:Ginnosaji's implacability.]]

Okay... this is bugging me, it have been show that, despite [[HealingFactor healing incredibly fast]](or not being affected by the wound at all), Ginnosaji 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?

* I imagine that the Ginosaji has a combination of RealityWarper and AdaptiveAbility. 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 of a building, a fat person is suddenly warped into being to break the victims fall.
* As the Ginosaji doesn't appear in every scene (When Jack tries to convince the medic, with the old woman...), it's posible 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.

* Jack being a [[InformedAbility forensic pathologist]], its probably the Ginosaji is some kind of revenge wraith of someone whose autopsy didn't go well or something like that.

to:

* 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.

[[WMG: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.

** The Ginosaji would prevent the ducktaping. Also, Uri Geller is not a real psychic so spoon-bending could not be learned from him.

to:

* 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.

[[WMG: 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?
