“On the second night, the ones who remain tear up the two who get close…”
Hm, aren’t Eva and Hideyoshi’s deaths a deviation from Beatrice’s second night prophecy? Beforehand I imagined that the two who would be killed would do something that would send all the others into a killing frenzy. Besides, they weren’t really torn up. A knife to the head is a lot more clean than what happened to the first six victims. If anything their deaths are more like the fourth night prophecy: “Gouge the head and kill”. Oh well, maybe that’s just a difference between the manga and the anime or it could just be a mistranslation from the scans I read. One thing’s certain: you’re definitely going to die if you have a sweet heartfelt moment earlier in the episode.
I couldn’t help but laugh at Battler’s reasoning for Kinzo’s disappearance. With all the money Kinzo has you’d think he’d have a secret exit rather than hiding under a table like a three year old. But golf clap for Battler telling off Maria (even though he’s probably wrong about Beatrice’s existence). If they aren’t going to kill off Maria, I’m happy enough for someone to kick a hole through her witch ramblings.
Whenever the Bible’s in an anime series, you can bet some messed up stuff is going to show up. Kind of odd for a witch to be calling on a Christian god for revival, but whatever. As for guesses on the killer(s), right now I’d say Genji, Kumasawa, Maria or a 19th person/Beatrice. Kanon’s out cause he would have gone after Natsuhi if anyone because he blames her for Shannon’s death. The three teens are the “good” guys out of the entire group, and the doctor’s got his own cholesterol to worry about than killing. Eva and her husband’s murders are special since the chain link on their door was locked the entire time, meaning someone got in through either the window, a secret entrance or with supernatural methods.
