THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Showing how Jintan is not so popular anymore and is hard to help Nenma with her request since they cannot see her except Jintan.

Nice anime.

It was well done, but damn depressing.

BTW - the summary on the page is wrong. This is either a ghost story or a story of memories and regrets.

Amazing. Extremely good. Hana-saku automatically lost in drama-department this season.

Though, it's ... very sad anime. Very depressing. (*Anaru part was lol)

Lol @ the "bitch" part. Can't believe Menma said that word lol

Its pretty sad noone sees her. Its hard on both of them, but especially for Jintan since he's the only one who can. He can't sometimes help but react to what she does or says..I guess that's part of the reason why he's alone.

That guy in the uniform (I think his name is atsumu?) Pretty much crushed Jintan. I feel bad for him now.

Damn..Menma tryna shrug off what Jintan said back when they were kids...gets depressing by the minute. Also, when she comes home to her family, damn I cried a bit. Her brother wasn't tryna be a jackass but that really mustve hurt Menma..

There's a lot of emotions running in this anime, I really love it.

With Jintan finding Tetsudo, a childhood friend, the train starts moving.

Can't wait for next one.

Holy crap, wasn't expecting this to be that depressing. Definitely watching this. Love ZONE for the ED.

Also, why is there a chick named Anal? (Anaru)

Annoying dead girl that looks like Index. That's what a first thought of Menma :S
What I want to know is she a ghost or a figure of Jinta's imagination? Cause he seems to think he's hallucinating yet she can interact with the world to some degree.

I really don't know what to expect of this show.

Pretty much what I thought as well.

And what now? I guess I'll just watch this, see where it goes.
At least it most definitely won't be utter garbage.
And for some reason, this kind of feels like watching Myself;Yourself again, for some reason.
Thus, I totally feel like this show could to better with an ED sung by Itou Kanako. I just get that kind of feeling from this show.
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

A lot better than expected. Hanasaku Iroha just got some competition for best Slice of Life of the season, if not best anime, but it's too early to say that.

As an anime original story, I'm looking forward to the rest of this. I'm crossing my fingers on too many shows to have a 20+ episode count this season.

Also, I love the OP and ED used. They fit so perfectly.

Menma combines ANjo NARUko into Anaru
Likewise, it would seem that Menma is a combination of her own actual names: MEiko hoNMA

Wow, that was a great episode. Lived up to my high expectations for this show.

Even better than Hanasaku Iroha, and probably the best this season so far.

I wonder if this is going to get as depressing as Clannad. Every season seems to have one or two shows that stand out from the others. This might be one of those shows. Not saying the other shows aren't good though....there are several shows every season I enjoy.

Just wait until you see Clannad After Story.

Since we've already had the revelation that Meiko is dead, I don't think we'll end up in the same place as Clannad or some of the other tearjerkers (although I'll admit my eyes were pretty moist a couple of times in this episode). I'm wondering where this is going to go since she seems pretty corporeal for a ghost (anaru could feel Meiko's weight around her neck and the door and glass were moved when she went home).

This season is actually shaping up to be much better than I thought it would.

You know the show will continue to be epic when the ending song is played over the running scenes in the first episode already.

Good start, hoping it can keep up the momentum of the first ep and go even further!

Does anyone have info on how many Episodes this is supposed to run?

I think I have a feeling what Yukiatsu is feeling.
Hopefully I am correct, or I am going to hate him for his idiocy.

Either way, it was a good episode and am looking forward to this as one of the better anime this season.

Wow, this episode was so touching. This is going to be a good series. Hopefully it ends happy and Jinta comes to peace with Menma and Jinta and Naruko end up together (I feel something there).

Not bad at all. It definitely has the potential to pull some heartstrings in a non-cheesy way. I have the feeling Hanasaku Iroha will prove out to be better in the character department.

This surpassed all my expectations. It is difficult for a person to come to terms with a traumatic past, and this first episode has set up and handled those heavy emotions really well. I hope the show continues at this level.

It is nice to have a show this season which is thematically mature (relative to other anime, that is). This seems to be a somewhat solid season.

Pretty depressing episode. ;_;

They must think of Jinta as a nutcase talking to himself, lol. Since Meiko has died and nobody seems to see her apart from Jinta, it seems like it'll contain some fantasy as well.

I wonder what her actual wish is. I bet on something like the club coming back together. I wonder if he'll succeed in doing so.

The first impression I got was that this would be a very cute anime...I was quite wrong about that; the feeling remained though.
Probably Menma will try to unite everyone through Jintan. Meh, anything else I could say is that this could as well become one of my favorites this season...
