THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

I probably should have waited for subs, but I can't help it, I already love this show! :)

I can't really seem to like Anaru's character much no matter how hard I try (and her nickname is still funny). That said, I wasn't really all that interested with Jinta's development with her.



The ED is so beautiful. <3

I liked the first episode more, but this show still delivers good drama. Looking forward to the next episode!

Wow, this anime is just so good it's making my heart burst! I get such a crazy good feeling from it, and the anime style looks so similar to Toradora its just one good thing after another! Honestly, I like all the characters so far, even Yuki!

Hey, different strokes for different folks. I thought the development between all the characters is pretty good so far. It's interesting to see how it seems like everyone has changed, but the more you find out about people, they really haven't changed at all.

Great episode, Thursday is officially my favourite day of the week.

Have you ever seen something so sad. I felt like part of Menma's wish was granted. That one guy Yuki I think, seems like a strange guy to me.

still loving the hell out of this show, quite happy that jintan became friends again with anjo but it seems Yukiatsu is gonna be the hardest one to come around with everyone since it seems he was the most troubled by Memmas death*the dude kept some of her clothes if thats what it really was*,anyho kinda cool how the previews tied in with the Ed song haven't seen that done in a while.

I didn't think I'd be the only one who actually likes Yukiatsu.

But yeah, it was creepy when he was sniffing at Menma's clothes. I don't want a love triangle - especially not over a death person. Please, he and Tsuruko make a better couple.

I love this fricken anime so much. It's one of the best shows in the Spring line up.

Poppo is a pretty cool character. Yukiatsu is a little bit weird though. I guess he loves Menma? I mean..he's sniffing what appears to be one of Menma's belonging. Kinda weird.

looking forward to next episode.

This episode brought back so many memories of Pokemon, how everyone would bring their cards and games to school and everyone would trade stuff...I miss those days :(

Anyway, I didn't expect Anaru to turn in one ep but I liked how they did it in this ep. Looks like the other two will be hard to cooperate with. I want the next ep now! =3

this anime is definely the best among the spring anime. filled with taste of life. sad and yet bring hope and cheer up teenager like me. the beauty in art and the story is so obvious it doesn;t even need an experience adult or something to understand. a simple story all can relate to. i hope this anime able to end as good as how it start

Poppo is pretty weird right about to show Jinta...that.

It annoys me how Anaru's hair sticks out like that...I know it's anime, but compared to the other characters, it looks silly.

And I loved the part in the game store, there were posters for a lot of anime. Like Hourou Musuko and Working!!. And lol @ the Pokemon thing.

The part with the guy sniffing her clothes was weird though. Would have been insanely more weird if he was fapping like another poster said...but I don't think he was. xD

I really like Anaru. She's one of those people that are trying to grow up as quickly as possible and look pretty, etc, but she can't bring herself to throw out her childhood games and memories. And the fact that she was willing to play with Jinta and Poppo, shows that she hasn't completely changed. I think she blames herself a bit for Menma's death, as well...I'm looking forward to see how this plays out.

JINTAAAAA PLEASE GET A HAIRCUTT pleaspleasplease.

but all the other things are great! i think it's the best of this season, such a sweet story.. :') better than all thouse fighting stuff and all, this one has really a meaning.


Oh and i wish that Jinta would tell Menma to lift something up so everyone would see a floating thing in the air.. i wonder if that's possible.. i mean she eats food.. if Hisakawa hadn't turned is head away when they were eating together, i bet he would have seen that Menma eat Jinta's food... :O would he ?

I like Yukiatsu, too. People are making too big of deal about him smelling Menma's clothes. I didn't really find it to be that strange. And I don't think we have to worry about some sort of love triangle involving Yukiatsu. He wasn't in love with her, just friends, and that scene was meant to show he still remembers and treasures her memory. Anyways, the only love triangle I can see is Menma, Anaru, and Jintan. It's not something I'm worried about since Menma isn't exactly alive to be much 'competition' for Anaru. Besides, I don't really like the idea of a whole lot of romance with a childish character such as Menma. To me it's more like Jintan had a crush on her as a child, and that's part of the reason why he's had a hard time letting her go. There's also the fact he called her ugly, possibly causing him to have some sort of guilt. Then again, I could be completely off about all this.

Aw, really? I love her hair! I know it doesn't make sense, but it's kind of cool. Her fashion sense is awesome, too.

Loved this episode. I hope this show doesn't decide to throw away its drama like a certain other anime this season decided to do.

This was a great episode, and I especially enjoyed seeing the exposing of Anaru's real self behind her facade of tough, 2nd-tier-highschool-attending girl.

Not sure if troll.
You just can't go sniffing the clothe of someone who has passed away without having any romantic feelings towards that someone. Since that doesn't seem to convince you, how about that fact that he even has her dress? "Hello Honma-san, I am truly sorry for your loss, but do you mind if I keep her dress as a memento?". Ahaha, nope.

Gee, I wonder what Nokemon could refer to. And really, WcDonalds must be the worst variation ever. Seriously, don't mix toilets and burgers. Just. Don't. Do it.
So, Menma is dead, Jintan's a hikikomori , Anaru's a closet gamer, Yukiatsu's a pervert, Tsuruko's a bitch, and Poppo's a... I don't know what.
So anyway, what, Menma's wish is for everyone to be all happy, being friends again? Or something like that, I guess. ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌
Then again, that flower referred to in the title is kinda suspicious as well, I guess.

Too bad they're pretty uncommon, those people.

Or why don't we make things a bit more complicated?
Like...
Jintan and Yukiatsu both like Menma, who's dead.
Anaru likes Jintan.
Tsuruko likes Yukiatsu.
Poppo is weird.
And Menma is (still) dead.
I can already feel a fabulous plot based on this building up in my head.
Fanfiction in the makings.

No offense, but him keeping those clothes after all those years, and actually bringing them out to sniff is kind of disturbing. What would you honestly think if someone did that in real life?

I really really like Anaru. I prefer her with Jinta over Menma actually (and not just because she's dead).

The clothes sniffing was unsettling, but more than anything I'm curious about Yukiatsu's character. I like him, but I can tell there's a lot more than we know going on with him.

oK the part where he smells menmas clothes are really weird. And why does he have them in the first place? Either he was there when she died or he also saw her back from the dead and he couldnt grant her wish and she dissapeared? idn either way he sniffed her clothes. nuff said

because the way you think maybe the reason for it. i don't see anything but maybe he loved menma and it was his way to show his affection for her.

Nice ED, I like how the preview plays during it.

noitaminA anime? don't tell me this is your first one. i have seen these scenes since HnC.

This episode was wonderful in almost all aspects. This anime just got better with Poppo in it. He is like a fresh air to blow away all the sadness.

1 a week is fine... A bitch but... If you've followed Katanagatari (once a month), some OVAs (once a few months...) or Bakemonogatari (the last few webcast episodes...).
