  • Broken Base: Regarding the ending, and generally split into three groups; those who think it was just as good, if not scarier, than the rest of the series, those who think the quality isn't as good but is enjoyable nevertheless, and those who think it was terrible and relied too much on gore rather than mystery.

    • For some, Sakuragi's death goes from horrifying to Black Comedy when you see her hand in the air and her foot leaning on the last stairstep, both twitching in an almost comical manner. That was a bit too much.
    • In episode 10, it's revealed that the calamity was stopped by killing the extra student. Teshigawara says, great, now we just need to figure out who the extra is! Then--he's interrupted by Kouichi and a needlessly loud background track.

    • In episode 12, the chandelier falls on a group of students trying to escape. One of them is unharmed and gets out. He runs for the door... and is immediately crushed by a random falling pillar.
    • What's the deal with all the explosions in episode 12? Were the homeowners smuggling live anti-tank munitions?
  • Paranoia Fuel: Some of the deaths seem designed to show that no matter how careful you are, there is no possible way to anticipate and defend against every one of the infinite ways you may die every single day.
  • The Woobie:
    • Mei.
    • Kouichi as well. His mother and aunt are both dead, the latter of which he has to kill himself as much as he doesn't want to.
