i kinda had a feeling that it was going to work though i wanted it too i wonder what her wish is? it has to be something to do with jinta's mom. really sad with the whole relationship thing all this unrequited is sad :(
next is the last episode hopefully a happy ending :D
It's like the whole thing can't get sadder. I guess she can't pass out until all of her friends are ready to let her go. I'm sure it's because of Jintan she's still here. But just one episode to finish everything... For a story drawing me this much in itself... I really get the feeling, that it will end within blink of an eye... just like what happens in our real lives...
Qashqai said: So, as far as I understand Japanese (not much), Menma's wish was something about Jintan, huh (since she called the gang to do something for Jintan)? And it must've been a request from Jintan's mom. Can't wait to see what it actually was.
It does really seem like Menma's wish is related to something Jintan's mother may have said! I didn't think she'd leave after the fireworks - somehow, that would've been too simple... and left too many loose ends. (Even though creating the fireworks was anything but simple for the gang.)
Have to say, Menma's brother is a great character. Well, hard to say maybe because we haven't seen much of him, but he gives off good vibes.
I finally cried T__T.Throughout the whole anime I was waiting for that one moment that would make me cry and I found it T__T.
The scene where they were about to shoot the firework.And then when Jintan keeping thinking about stopping the firework,but when tries to stop the firework it was already too late.Then the music starts at the perfect moment.We get to see everyone reactions to the firework launching.The firework display it self was boring but I was too busy crying to care.Then we hear Menma's voice and I felt happy yet upset and was crying at the same time because she didn't disappear.
Only one episode left hopefully I cry as much as I did this episode T__T.
This girls have some bad taste! How can they pine over Jintan and Yukiasshole when the main man Popo is standing right before them?
I loved at how Tsuruko got a haircut to let some of the less attentive viewers know she just had a chunk of character development at admitting to her crush for that scumbug Yukiatsuo. I do feel legitmately bad for Anaru because it's so obvious that she likes him and Jintan can't move on from Menma and his mom's death. I think that's what it basically boils down too he can't deal with being alone and 2 very important women to him died.
Once he stops living in the past and accepts that they're gone Menma will finally be able to rest and he can move on.
Aaaaaand, I cried.
Damnit, you fucking tear jerker :(
Anyway, it was a great episode and yet, the preview made me even more sad...
When Jin-tan tried to stop it at the last second, that's where I started to cry. All his expression of despair was difficult to bear.
Yet, I'm just so fucking scared. You know, if she didn't dissapear, that mean that it wasn't her true wish. But we saw her in the beginning of the episode that she was starting to fade away. Does that mean that she about to dissapear and continue wandering as ghost forever? Or does that mean that her wish had been already fulfiled? I said it before, I think that her wish is that the group stay together forever.
I was so curious about what Jin-tan mother told to Menma. I'm a bit deceived by what it was, but it was still a good scene.
Tsuruko finally stopping being passive. Jin-tan also have been able to correct the shot from 5 years before. It was still a bit cruel what they did...

I had a feeling that she might not disappear after the rocket launch, and it seems like I was right. I'm about to start watching the final episode and I wonder what kind of ending it will have, since things seemed to have been left at a quite awkward situation.
The theme songs for this anime is just perfect.
Playing the ending theme right when the fireworks went off brought tears to my eyes, such a sad scene and such a beautiful song.

Chiriko's feelings have finally come out. Yukiatsu seems pretty dense.
Even though it's a little odd given the circumstances, I'm glad Jinta finally confessed. It was really cute hearing Menma speculate that they might have gotten married had she not died... cute, but sad. I think Jinta's suggestion that she stay around is asking a lot, though. I mean, yeah, who'd want to lose their friend like that. She died, though, so... Idk. It sucks.
Annnnnnd Yukiatsu is still really, really messed up.
I'm glad Menma's family showed up. The mom in particular really needs help letting go... The look on Menma's face when she saw her brother was priceless. I feel bad for Poppo, though. He seems really attached to her himself, yet I don't think it's in the way Jinta or Yukiatsu is.
Speaking of Menma, she really put on a brave face for everyone in trying to go to Heaven. The way she looked at herself after the fireworks went off... she's clueless as to why she's still around. I know we're feeling bad for the others, but Menma's situation sucks too.
Only one episode left? Nooooooo. ;-;
Edit: Wait, how does this end if Menma doesn't end up leaving? Hmm...
It's actually quite obvious that Menma wouldn't disappear after the firework blasting. It's just too banal for a wish that'd let her rest in peace. The last episode would be a huge blast of feels, I'm sure of that. It's from the writer of Nagi No Asukara after all.
At least let it be a happy ending. If it ends with a sad note, I'd be bawling everytime I hear Secret Base.
