THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I am sorry I was not able to be with you guys before but anyways now I am back! This episode like the others was no exception, it was full of emotions and the ED is a emotional jerker no matter what. I could say that Tsurumi's drawing of Menma in the following,

shows her well in regards to innocence and happiness.

Loved Jinta's catch Naruko in that forest. I am getting more and more suspicious of Atsumu, especially since that sniff of what looked liked Menma's clothing back in episode 2 and I was right. Those clothings along with wig was all of Atsumu's doing in the fake Menma as follows,

As to why, they left it a cliffhanger so.....I want to know now! I do have some intuitions about it, like Atsumu may have loved Menma and was jealous of Jinta from how he intimidated during that jogging segment.

Another good thing is group interaction in the base. That is nice overall that more of that is happening. I like that old base. Reminds me so much of my times when I was a kid. :D Discuss Atsumu and Jinta x Anjou stuff!

This episode... holy crap. Probably the most intense one yet.


This ep really kept me at the edge of my seat. Now I'm gonna hate waiting again for a whole week but every episode's really worth the wait.

Ohhh Tsuruko knew it was Yukiatsu...

Now I want to know how Yukiatsu got that dress. It's definitely not Menma's, the design is different and I don't think he'd fit in one of her dresses.

Holy crap, I can't believe they actually did it...I was expecting for him to be a crossdresser, but in the back of my mind I was always hoping they wouldn't go that route. But they did. I can't wait to see how this is going to play out, Yukiatsu is seriously creepy.

I really wish Jinta would have Menma write her name in the dirt or something to show everyone that she is actually there...

And looks like Tsuruko is an artist. That's a nice touch to her character. I like how she also called out Yukiatsu when they were chasing him down. Judging by how bored she looked when Yukiatsu said he could see Menma, she must have known all along or had a faint idea that he was doing it.

Anaru is really cute with braids too. I like how often the character's clothes and hair change in this show, it's a nice touch.

It only makes sense that Tsuruko would notice it since she's with him the most. Yukiatsu, what hath you done? o.O
I can't wait for the explanation to this one.

Anaru's constant style changes are awesome. She's so cute the way she beats around the bush with everything, I think.

Recall the last episode? When Tsuruko and Yukiatsu were out shopping for girl's accessories, Tsuruko mentioned that Yukiatsu was always taking her along on trips like that.

What a great cliffhanger! Can't wait to see how Yukiatsu tries to explain himself and get out of that situation.

Jintan catching Anaru as she stumbled near the riverbank, and flashback to Menma's sandal floating in the river, was intense.

Poppo as well now can feel the physical weight of Menma's presence, just like Anaru in the first episode.. Menma the poltergeist eh =D

LOOK WHO IS TALKING YOU FREAK!!!

I thought it was too weird to be true!!!! BUT OH MY GOD!!!!!
ITS OFFICIAL!! YUKIATSU IS A FREAK!!!!!!!!

I kinda dont want to hate him cause hes FINE AS FUCK and he has the same VA as Cloud Strife.. but DAMN! HES CRAZY!!!

Hes so crazy that he is entertaining...XD

It was too horrid to watch the ending because it was just so embarrassing for Yukiatsu.. XD

SUCH A GREAT EPISODE!!!

This show if BY FAR the BEST of the season..

DAMN THESE PREVEIWS ARE LIKE 3 SECONDS LONG!!!SO SHORT!!

And every character thought Jintan was the crazy weirdo... Honestly this episode proved to me that Yuki needs some professional help, lol...

Yuki is extremely pitiful. Always having to make Jinta feel like nothing just to make himself look & feel better - even when Yukiatsu already succeeded in getting into a better school, also isn't a shut-in, really attractive, really smart & from the looks of it he seems rather wealthy, unlike Jintan at the moment who let himself go after the "Menma" incident. What else does he need to do to make himself feel less inferior...?

Also, Tsuruko sure is growing on me..&& JintanxNaruko<3


Random thought: Anaru's "friends" seem to be getting "sick" of her being unsocial - Next couple of eps will she be outcasted just like Jintan from those bitches?

Just to add on, I thought Tsuruko was part of Yukitsu's scheme.. but since shes not , shes actually pretty cool! :3

I have to infer that probably when they were kids for all their relationships;

Menma probably thought of everyone as a family. Like she loved and cared about everyone but I dont think in a romantic way. Jinta probably liked Memna, Anaru probably liked Jinta, and Yukiatsu probably liked Memna too... Tsuruko MIGHT have liked Yukiatsu..(BUT WHO WOULDNT LIKE A FREAK LIKE HIM!!)... IDK..
And Poppo probably cared for everyone like family (but admired Jinta the most) just like Menma!

Just how I think.. XD

I'm REALLY loving this show!! *o*

eh. i wasn't the biggest fan of the theory that yukiatsu was crossdressing as menma (simply because the way it was being presented came off as too creepy for a show as heartwarming and touching as this), but i didn't reject it as much as i thought i would when i actually saw it happen. meaning, maybe they can play this out right and yukiatsu can, uh... redeem himself. or something.

i don't know. i like him despite his flaws and creepiness. he obviously has some extremely repressed issues and if he can overcome them and become a better person, well... that'll be some excellent character development?!

best character for me is, hands down, tsurumi ehehehe.

anyway! overall, i enjoyed this episode. i have had zero complaints about this show so far and i don't intend on starting any time soon!

If nothing else, Menma is absolutely adorable.

But why can't she just write her name on a board or carry stuff around? She can hold objects and people notice when she's interacting with them.

I did not expect that ending. it totally surprised me. I kinda got it as soon it was ending. This guy who goes to a prestige school, I think, cross dresses in the clothes of the girl he's obsessed with.

ugh, this show is always an emotional rollercoaster for me. i cry for one minute, then hate on yukiatsu, then laugh, and then feel sorry for yukiatsu towards the end. ; A ; if /a/ hadn't pointed it out for everyone, the thought of yukiatsu cross-dressing as menma might've never even occurred to anyone in the first place. THIS SHOW IS UNBELIEVABLY UNPREDICTABLE. so good hnngghhh.

i thought the show was pretty straight-forward when i first watched it. i guess not??? @ A @

Definitely a good episode.

I have some theories going around.

1) Yukiatsu is buying the scrunchies for Naruko. She wears a bunch on her wrist and Yukiatsu isn't using them in his "tribute" or giving them to Tsuruko.

2) I don't know why, but something is telling me that Tsuruko might be able to see Menma, but isn't admitting it for some reason. It's probably waaaaay off base, but I kind of got that impression when she came over to Yadomi's house in this episode.

Anyways, this is probably the best anime I've seen in a while, and I can't wait to see where it goes next.

Yukiatsu is not only an asshole, he's also really messed up.

Obviously he has repressed homolust for Jinta, and was always jealous of Menma to a point where he wanted to BE her.

Tsuroko likely already knew.
About Yukiatsu, I knew that his cold, insensitive nature was hiding something. It did hint before that there was something in his closet which looked like a dress. I just assumed he held on to her dress or something to reminisce. I did not expect the crossdressing. However, everyone who thinks he is suddenly a freak are rather insensitive too.. People cope with death of a loved one in many ways.
Jintan's method of coping was to hallucinate. Anjou's was to become a rebel.
Tsuroko's was to be cold and logical.

Certainly ups the drama levels.
Good episode.

Give her more screen time plz. Also have Naruko and her dress up together. I need it.

Everyone and their mom knew it was the guy. I am glad they decided to do it. Good call anime now keep rolling with it.

I would wish for that too and perhaps the foreshadow that she moved thigns in her house may be a lead on as to what you wish for. I hope there will be some sign but did not Menma already gave a feel to Popo when she climbed on him?

Tsuruko seemed a few episodes back disappointed in Yukiatsu so this tells me she cares enough in this episode to change him perhaps as she would like, maybe drop his bad habits.

Exactly! YOU GOT IT! I also though this meant that Yukiatsu is not so honest to himself.
Lulexiaa said:

He has self issues big time. He needs Tsuruko to fix him ASAP.
Lulexiaa said:

I think it was more horrid because the OST made it emotional. I felt he has problems with himself but I am more curious what is Menma's role going to be in all this.

I hope this will not happen but if it does it will make Jinta x Naruko more than ever since he will be the one to most likely comfort her. I wonder if Menma will help in that?

yes I wanted to say something along those lines too. it seems Anaru will be getting some screen time in that light .. the 'working on it' will be put the test .. and perhaps it will show to help with Jinta getting back out , and most of the group minus the psycho douche , are back together. I am a AnaruxJinta shipper I admit too

but I do see something about Anaru finally having to 'break free' from that group of bitches

Wow, Tsuruko totally changed my opinion of her. She just outed Yukiatsu like that. Yeaahh can't wait to see what that pitiful bastard has to say now.

Why doesn't Menma just take the cup from Poppo and drink the coffee or jack some of the meat on the grill? Everybody would then see that her ghost is real. Oh wait, this is anime. Obvious common sense does not apply.

I thought that Tsuruko was a bitch too, but in this episode, she redeemed herself.
