What kind of preview is that oh god...

This show is full of emotions.

Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.

Here's what I'll predict will happen:

1. Jinta will end up with Naruko
2. Tsurumi witl Mastuyuki
3. Menma will disappear by the end of episode 11.

Didnt expect Yukiatsu would go and save Anaru! :o

I was just thinking, to prove of Menma's 'existence', why not ask her to do something so Jintan can prove that Menma really is there and did make that cupcake or something!

I feel kind of irritated by Menma at this point, not very sure why.. And even though I know that Poppo might not mean any harm but i guess those words were a little too much for Menma who also have no answers to those questions herself..

excellent episode.

Matsuyuki turned a 180 after that performance.

so Naruko is a virgin, damn bastard trying to steal away Naruko.

while i still hate Matsuyuki, at least thanks to him Naruko is safe.

Naruko does love Jintan huh?

i just feel bad for Naruko falling for Jintan.

i mean why not me?!?! :P

why did Tsurumi had a similar hair pin like Menma?

is she trying to mimic her so that Matsuyuki would look at her.

Poppo went to far though, we already know everyone wants to talk to Menma.

can't wait for the next one, this series is too short though :\

I don't get why Menma doesn't just ring a bell or pick up objects. Somehow she can touch people, and they can feel something.

Exactly I was really annoyed that she just started crying. DO SOMETHING!

Is it that hard? She can pick up things, she can cook and she can eat. I think she just likes being there and doesn't want to vanish, but if that's the case she shouldn't ***** about some stupid wish!

The scene where Yukiatsu grabs Jinta and tells him it's his fault that Menma died was so powerful. I was seriously holding back tears. It seems Tsuruko knew that he has been feeling this way. She has been with him as well when he bought the dress that looked like the one Menma had.

The scene on the train was also great. Yukiatsu tells Anaru that they've been left behind, which is ironic since Yukiatsu must be near the top of his class and at a prestigious school yet he is left behind by Jinta who is basically a dropout.

I will say that Menma crying at the end was a little over the top. It was a touching moment without a doubt but she's basically been crying everytime something sad happens (which is fine since it was stated that she was a crybaby) but it lost a little bit of the feeling for me seeing it so many time. Just a little though :)

I hope they'll all be able to see her

Yukiatsu sure redeemed himself well, like the MAN he is indeed. He's no woman!

Glad to see Anjou actually put up some resistance and not be like one of those ridiculous anime chicks who SOMEHOW gets NTR'd by going along even though she doesn't want it in the first place.

I find it ridiculous that Menma is able to interact with her surroundings physically, won't it make it extremely easy to prove that she is there, and possibly even interacting with the rest of them? It's so painfully obvious that I'm wondering whether this plot hole would ever be resolved.

It was an interesting episode. I like how candid Yukiatsu is but he's still an asshole. It's a bit odd how the glasses chick knows everything about everyone though. I mean I guess she's good at reading people but I just find it strange that she hasn't exposed herself at least a little emotionally as the others have so far.

As for Menma's interactions I'm not sure you're supposed to take those literally. It's not confirmed if she's a ghost or some manifestation of Yadomi's guilt/resentment or just some delusion since both she and his mom died so suddenly.

Wait, so... Yukiatsu likes Menma, while also liking Anaru, Anaru and Menma on the other hand both like Jinta, and Poppo is forever alone? What a love octagon.

How dare that guy use One Piece to get on with Anaru, that good for nothing. However, I think Poppo was sadder at the end then Menna was

Now the drama spike things up, that ending caught me off guard when Poppo is blurting out those words in front of Menma (even though he can't see or hear her).

Glad that Yukiatsu saved Anaru from that person who harass her. Now I want to see her true feelings for Jintan.

Everyone is very influence about Menma image, but gets a little downright from some people. Even the crossdressing Yukiatsu liked her huh... well this episode had lots of feels into it, I like to where this is going.

Damn, seeing Poppo so desparate to talk to Menma was really depressing. And her crying without him noticing it... But really Menma, just make a bowl fly or something!

So we got to ''solve'' the case about Yukiatsu. Man, he got rejected by the girl he loved and then she die... Same for Jin-tan, he tell her that he doesn't love that ''ugly girl'' and then hours later, she die. Fate is really a bitch, right?

I was really scared when that molester forced Anaru to follow her to an hotel. What a fucker, go die in an alley, plz.

idiot. you don't ask a girl who was just about to be sexually assaulted if she wants to go out with you. there is a time and a place for things.

and he's probably still in love with Menma so I don't even know if he really likes Anjou?
so if it was a joke then it was even less considerate.

I nearly choked when I read that. .______.;;;

- - - - -

Yukiatsu still seems pretty creepy. The guy's scarred badly. I'm glad he was there to help out Anjou, but what was up with his asking her out anyway? That seemed to come out of nowhere... Also, we discover that he liked Menma too when they were little.

Seems like Tsuruko likes Yukiatsu, to me. She apparently retrieved the hairpin he threw way back then. Wearing it like that implies pretty strongly that she still wants to be with him. She's constantly hanging out with him too. I wonder how she feels about the Menma stuff.

The part with Poppo was really sad. You can tell how hard he's trying to help... how badly he wants to be able to see Menma too.

Menma broke down and started crying. I know she doesn't understand why she's there, but she doesn't seem to want to interact with anyone else, either. Sure, she might hug them when she's super happy or something, but when it comes down to showing them that she's there, she won't do anything. I wonder why that is...

Good episode. Anjou really needs to ditch her "friends" already.

Oddlly enough, the thing that stuck out to me most this episode was so insignificant. Did anyone notice Tsuruko flipping the pages in the "western" direction while in the station. She may be reading in English since we saw them in class doing the same but I'm not sure. Anyway, another great episode to have marked off as watched.

I kind of disagree. The guy really wasn't THAT much of a scumbag or a creep. Based on the way Anjou dresses and the company she keeps, people look at her and assume she is a slut.
He is like that because he knew the girl was under age and he was a adult. He knew how to take advantage due his numerous experiences and life experiences. So yeah inside he was the scum-bag to take advantage of young meat and he is a creep who can't get enough of it. I am 100% sure IRL shit like him go to date sites and grab only teenagers, as long as she is less than 18 and older than (insert limit of male person age limit) it's fine.
GarLogan78 said:
Tsuruko even called her one, and Anjou's "friends" obviously sleep around.
Anjou's friend's habits are their problem she can be involved or not. Depends on her but obviously her friends forced into all this. Tsuruko calling her one may also be a meaning that she wished to have that style and be less reserved it could be out of sheer jealousy of Anjou's lifestyle.
GarLogan78 said:
So I don't think the guy was completely in the wrong. Anjou's attire and attendance at the karaoke bar were enough to make her seem like an easy teenage girl.
Oh so anyone who is over 18 is not in the wrong wanting to put his dick in a girl's hole that is not fully mature, thus comes any sex with a minor is WRONG! That's it that's all.
GarLogan78 said:
Also, the guy probably thought she was just being a tease when she said she did not want to do it. It WAS wrong for him to try and force her when she was crying and stuff, but the initial misunderstanding was definitely Anjou's fault.
It plain wrong for him wanting sex from her while he was a full adult. WTF? This guy wanted some young meat around his dick. It's obvious and just to tell I hate adults taking advantage of teenagers. The only 2 reason those teenagers go for it is A) Money and B) The fact the parents are not paying attention enough to them. Kind of makes you think about facts that Anjou has a single mother and no father. Also we don't know how young she was when her father left her or at what age. Fact is the fatehr would never allow friends like them with her. Regardless this is my reply to you and I don't think you can deny any of it. Show me what you got on the stand! Ha!

Alright, I gotta educate you since you seem to think to know how the law works. And I dont want people to read your comment thinking that what you say is fact, when you are wrong.

They are In Jpn, not the US. You might find this difficult to believe, but countries outside the US do not follow the laws of the US. Shocking right? You keep saying 18, under 18, etc. That doesnt mean a thing in Jpn. In Jpn, the age of majority is 20. The age of consent varies depending on which prefecture you are at.

Also, in the US, over 30 states have the age of consent at 16. Then the rest of them have them at 17, and few have them at 18. So yeah, keep that in mind, mr. wanna be legal advice. In this anime, they are freshman in HS, and in Jpn, the majority of freshman in HS are 16-17. So yeah.... Also, in Jpn, females can get married at 16.

So to answer your question, if someone does it with someone who is 16-18, and the age of consent is 16, then they are not in the wrong according to the law, unless it if forcible of course. And chicks reach full physical maturity around age 15, so the "hole", as you put it, of a female 16 and older is "fully mature" as you also put it.

I only replied to your comment because I dont want anyone reading your comment thinking that it is fact, when its not. Remember, they are not in the US.

The real problem with this episode (and this whole anime actually if you see the next episodes) is that it is using the whole demonizing of side characters, making them act as bad people for no reason at all so our main characters can look like heroes. THAT IS SOOOOO CLICHE!!!. And I could see it from a mile away when Anaru was screaming for help that a main male character was gonna appear to rescue her, which it did happen >__> .... Thats the whole damsel in distress, enter rescue knight cliche.

Yukiatsu was really guilty...
Confessions, everywhere...
A boy forced Naruko to a love hotel, but Yukiatsu saved her. What a good-timing.
Only Jintan could really see Menma.

Good episode!

The first really touching episode. There are two parts that almost made me cry, the confession of Yukiatsu and the part with Poppo. Poor Poppo he want to see her, but unfortunately it's impossible. IMO, he is one of the best character of this anime.

I don't understand...

If Menma can interact with objects, why couldn't she move the chopsticks or something to show that she was there?
Why can't she write a message down with a pen and paper?

She cooked cupcakes in an earlier episode, right?

Yuki was an idiot for asking Anjo about her virginity after saving her life from a pervert. Who asks question to a girl like that lol

The flashback with Yuki and Menma was so emotional and packed with feels. I think I have a new ship thanks to this episode.

I cried when Menma tries to convinced Poppo that she wants to talk to everyone but can't and Poppo because he wants to see Menma. Poor Menma and Poppo :(

Yuki!!! He grew so much this episode ;n;

I now pity everyone, bc while they might look like they are over it everyone is just coping in his own way.

The last scene with poppo, menma and jintan was the saddest. (the bit with yuki and an was so scary)

Yukiatsu seemed like a creep to me in the first few episodes, but this episode showed that he can be a good guy by saving Anaru from getting laid. I feel sorry for Poppo while he's desperately trying to talk to Menma.

Anaru should just leave her bitchy "friends" behind. Judging on how they act, they're just bad influences towards her.
