Ring 2

sa morgue nag simula ang lahat after narecover yung body ni sadako [junie lee: naalala mo yung nakuha yung bangkay ni sadako sa balon? sa ring 1 yon eh. naalala mo?]. Yamamura Takashi [Numata Yoichi] was called in by the police to shed some light sa pagkamatay ni sadako. this is where one of my favorite scene can be found. heniweeeiii...

the police are questioning takano mai [Nakatani Miki] about the even stranger circumstances of her professor takayama ryuji [Sanada Hiroyuki]'s death. kaso parang mashado silang close para maging simpleng student-teacher bond lang eh... hmm... feeling ko mag-on silang dalawa. some suspect that somehow his ex-wife asakawa reiko [Matsushima Nanako] is involved, particularly after the equally strange death of Reiko's father in similar circumstances. reiko and her son Yoichi have disappeared and Yoichi has become mute after having watched the video [juniee lee: naalala mo? yung ano yon eh... yung sa Ring 1. napanood nya yung video. nung bata... naalala mo?].

so as a result of her own grief and concern for Reiko and Yoichi, Mai decides to investigate. she knows the story of the cursed video, but not the reasons behind it. Her first lead takes her to the newspaper office where Reiko used to work, and there she teams up with another reporter, Okazaki [Yanagi Yuurei] who also wants to track Reiko down and learn more about what's been going on.

together, they decide to see if they can visit Tomoko's friend Kurahashi Masami [Sato Hitomi] who is still locked up in a secure mental health facility, having gone crazy after the death of Tomoko which happened in front of her. Masami also cannot speak, and seems to have developed some pretty intense psychic powers of her own. at the hospital, Okazaki and Mai meet a doctor who was a friend of Ryuji's, and who is treating Masami. this doctor has a theory: that psychic power [nensha daw sabi ng mga hapon] can be released and dissipated by water. However, after an experiment with Masami goes disastrously wrong, the doctor, his nurse, Okazaki and Mai all come into contact with the curse video via a mental projection of it sent out by Masami to their TV screen. ang cool siguro kung applicable yan sa pang araw-araw nating pamumuhay.

Intrigued by the idea, Okazaki interviews some teenagers about the video, and finds one, Kanae, who has seen it, and gives him a copy of it on the provision that he should watch it within a week. He locks it away with no intention of watching it, consigning Kanae to a horrible death. tang ina nga eh... yan tuloy, nabaliw na rin sya.

In the meanwhile, Mai carries on the investigation with the doctor, hoping that what she learns might be able to help Yoichi, if she ever finds him… but she only has seven days in which to try and find them and break the ring forever…
