I actually feel sorry for Yukiatsu...if he really is cross-dressing as Menma, then this is kind of messed up...but quite sad at the same time...i guess the death of a loved person could do that to you & people deal with things in different ways, that's understandable, but he still needs help...i think.

Wonder if Yukiatsu is yandere or just a massive woobie.

God Anaru is so cute.

Anaru with her hair down. WORDS CANT DESCRIBE HOW ERECT I AM.

Good episode, glad to see the quality of this show isn't showing signs of deteriorating.

And Yukiatsu takes a turn for the worse. He's buying stuff for Menma? And walks around dressed as Menma? >_> Though if it's Tsuruko walking around dressed up as Menma, that's still equally bad.
Also, Anaru with her hair down ヽ(´ー`)ノ

Damn it, I'm starting to like the ED.

Dear god, Yukiatsu was the most fucked up one after all and everybody thought Jin had issues.

I was actually pretty meh at this show at first but after this episode and Yukiatsu's supposed mental state, this is going up.

This episode ended too fast. I feel like I started it and then it was over. That picture with the watch is totally creepy. Great, great show so far.

I don't want to completely rule out Yukiatsu cross dressing as Menma, because there are quite a lot of obvious hints. But it does seem a little out of character.

What I think would be a much believable storyline would be if in an ironic twist, it was Yukiatsu who is having a Menma hallucination. I also think it's inevitable that he either witnessed Menma's death or had some sort of cause, the flashback that Yukiatsu had in the second episode where we saw Menma in front of a river, and we even caught a glance of her sandle in the same scene is enough proof for me.

Either way, they're certainly setting-up Yukiatasu to have clear psychological disorders. I can't wait until he finally loses himself and gets mad at Jintan for being the one that Menma loves, because towards the end of the episode when Yukiatsu told Jintan that "he's not the only one who can see Menma", there was definitely some competitiveness and jealousy at that point.

This show has so much drama, I'm in love with it.

Oh dear, Yukiatsu is completely mad. I feel kinda bad for him, but it's really creepy too.

Another beautiful episode. I'm surprised to see them together so soon, since I thought them getting back together was Menma's wish. Suppose it's something else though. Secret Base is just an amazing song, it makes me feel like crying.

I might get nightmares for this... After seeing this, Yukiatsu is beyond help XDD Last ep, we saw Yukiatsu sniffing on Menma's clothes and now he's buying girly accessories... Seriously, I'm worried that there would be a bad end in this series if not prevented...

I wonder if Yukiatsu's the reason why Menma died... Somehow this show got some creepy vibes but at the same time very nostalgic and sweet XDD

No guys, its not yukiatsu, it's actually tsuruko. Go back to the scene where yukiatsu and tsuruko are shopping and you can clearly see that she's also wearing a watch.

Ya think?

I honestly really believe he wants to spite Jinta and ruin him some more. But we'll see next week :)
I agree too. I believe he wants to state to him, you know your not special anymore, I can see her.

Though it's still possible that it's Yukiatsu.
If it's Yukiatsu, it'd be because he's completely messed up and makes himself believe that Menma is there by dressing up as her himself.
Or if it's Tsuruko, then it'd be because she's jelly. Definitely. And in that case, I guess Yukiatsu might've started to believe he saw Menma after having seen Tsuruko dressed up as her. That's also possible, I guess.
My point is that it can still be any of the two.

- Aki & Haruna were such bitches to him! I was hoping Anaru would do something but she didn't.
- Again, I love Poppo. <3
- The tug of warish thing was cute.
- Tsuruko showing up was shocking.
- Yukiatsu showing up was even more shocking.

Either that guy cross dresses or; he cross dresses.

The 'ghost' had a watch, the exact same one as the one Yukiatsu was wearing. Just sayin'.

Okay, since Yukiatsu being obsessed/in love with Menma seems sort of like a red herring so early on in this series, here's a random theory:
Since Yukiatsu was trying to decide on buying hair scrunchies, (instead of using them to cross-dress or whatever!) maybe the person he likes actually Anaru, who in this episode has them always around her wrist -




Is it definite that Yukiatsu and Tsuruko are dating, apart from the appearances of being seen together often?
Maybe the reason that he is annoyed with Jintan is that he is the one Anaru likes, rather than the one Menma liked.
Can't explain him having/sniffing Menma's dress though yet..

Interesting catch, type_silver - I think you might be right; a female build would have a better chance of being mistaken for Menma to an observer nearby like Poppo.

Yukiatsu is definitely lying. He's just being an as*hole to mess with Jinta's head.


I don't think that's what kind of person he is. I think he feels the way Jinta's feeling too, but he is able to hide it way better than Jinta can. The fact that he was angry at Jinta in ep1 was just to show that he himself can't handle the fact that Menma is dead either. He isn't really angry at Jinta. I'd say he's just sad and probably distressed, too.
He wouldn't go out of his way just to fuck with his friends. And yes, I think he still considers them friends somewhere deep in his heart.

The thing is, assuming it is one of them dressing up and not something else entirely, Yukiatsu seems to be the far likelier culprit. Tsuruko seems totally normal, if a little cold, whereas he has... 'interesting' habits, like sniffing clothes. Besides that, now it's been mentioned, those arms do look kinda manly.

But hey, it could all just be a red herring, so...
If any of my posts seem odd, it's probably because I'm tired. Sorry. I have sleeping issues.

Personally I think Yukiatsu just made a doll or something and put it by the river to trick them.

But after seeing that cross dressing theory, I guess that could be possible too o.O
Also, it reminds me of the movie 'Psycho'

But it's really disturbing if Yukiatsu actually is cross dressing as a dead girl.

Great episode as usual. About the Menma Poppo saw, first thing that comes to mind is obviously Yukiatsu, but we only know about him having the dress, nothing about the wig. Also Tsuruko actually wears a watch, and with her suddenly beliving in Menma it's propable it was her. Though i still think she said she believes if Anaru does to make her feel better, then again she's not really the type to.
Anyway, this is awesome period. And Anaru looks great wit hair down.

Hey guys, I think I solved the puzzle!!! There are a couple of things i want to point out.
First things first, Yukiatsu likes Anaru? Could be, but I don't think so! Good observation gracenote, but Anaru was already wearing a "hair" scrunchie before Yukiatsu went to buy one


Ok now, onto the next thing. You guys are saying Yukiatsu was lying when he said he saw Menma, but I'm pretty sure you guys are wrong because how come Tusruko can be so sure that he would come to the barbecue? As I pointed out earlier, it was tsuruko that dressed up as menma and this makes sense: tsuruko dresses up as menma, lets yukiatsu and poppo see her and tries to bring the group back together (maybe XD)


There are few other things I want to point out as well, but I'll do it later today XD

I think that he really may be, and that HE was the Menma that Poppo saw.
Because, you know, he has her dress. Though I doubt he'd be able to fit in it, maybe he made a replica of one that would fit him.
Yukiatsu was probably looking at those accessories for himself, when he's cross dressing and pretending to be a little girl.

Well even if he is a cross dresser I think it's the reasons he became a cross dresser that's important. Is it because of Menma's loss that he's cross dressing and trying to look like her? Is he trying to stave off the pain in his heart by trying to replicate the image of Menma? There's a lot of emotional things we don't know; or for example is he doing it with bitterness in his heart. Is he doing it with spiteful intentions? If he's hurt I sympathize with him and have empathy, but if he's doing it just to be a bastard then I'll lose a lot of respect.

On the theory that it could be Tsuruko instead who knows maybe it is? If it is I think shes probably just as badly scared as Yukiastu if shes going around dressing up as Menma. Or shes a brilliant genius trying to get all her friends back together, and she was the one suffering the most, and the most lonely since everyone changed. That could be proved by her cold attitude towards Anaru and how shes treating her badly because shes changed so much and she doesn't know how to deal with it. That's why she can't stand seeing her the way she is now and avoids being around her as could be seen in episode two. But yeah those are just my thoughts and opinions, we haven't seen enough of inner monologues, flashbacks or enough scenes to prove anything. I can't wait for the next episode. =)

Oh, I'd love to see Yukiatsu crossdressing, but I don't see that happening. Would be awesome though... -remembers Hayate no Gotoku-


I agree with the idea on there being 2 ghosts: you can see it in the opening as well. Plus it was someone hinted with Menma saying she wants to see her own ghost, lol. I really like the way this is going.

I wanted to like Yukiatsu, but I think he's lying about seeing Menma. I doubt that there are multiple ghosts of her and if there is, then that would be surprising. I hated seeing Menma cry, but at least she has Jintan by her side. I actually like Tsuruko and I definitely like Poppo. The only character I don't like is Anaru...and I know I'm probably in the minority. She's so easily influenced and can't even stand up for Jin-tan when those stupid girls were basically insulting him. Anyways looking forward to the next episode.

I liked this part:

Jin-tan: There's an egg shell in it
Menma: Calcium

Seriously Menma is just too cute!
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

Looking at the ep 4 preview, I can see the ending! lol XD Ah well this is fun cuz this is a really good anime and its also original so we can only guess whats going to happen next :D
Even though Tsuruko is cool and all that, she still treasures Menma like the rest of the group as shown at the preview where she has a drawing of Menma :

You're saying that it could be someone else? No no no here are 2 proofs:
1. You see the brown bit darker than the desk up there on the top right hand corner of my first spoiler? Well, its tsuruko's desk as shown here
You see the darker brown drawer on the right of her desk? It is very identical XD
2. In the first spoiler up there, you can see that the fingernails is not painted and also the skin is pale. If you look at all the main characters, there are only 3 people with pale skin: Menma, Tsuruko and Anaru. Menma is a ghost and Anaru has her fingernails painted
so the only one left is Tsuruko.
About Tsuruko's drawing, you can see Menma praying and I think that indicates that she remembers what Menma's wish was, and maybe that's why she dressed up as menma and to let Poppo and Yukiatsu see her.
Guys, im just letting you guys know what my opinion is, so please let us know urs!

Madoka... I mean, AnoHana Thursdays!

You know... I did give every anime airing at least a one episode test.
The shot of Anaru in that one piece with that flowing hair just took the breath out of me. Something that all these worthless fanservice shows have failed to do time and time again with T&A.
Love the character interactions!
