Yay Jintan goes to school, really like his school attire, though just a bit short live. Jintan and Anaru's classmates should learn to mind their own business when spreading false rumors around the school. I give points to Jintan for taking Anaru away from the school. Somehow a good progressing character for Jintan.
Damn visiting Menma's parents can be a bit tough for the three of them. Yukiatsu has some charms for being popular from the girls, which makes Tsuruko a bit uneasy...
And yet another drama in the end about towards near at the end, but a nice close up to Anaru thanks to Jintan :D.
tsubasalover said: Jintan, who actually went to school, is so cool for protecting Anaru from the rumor.
He actually went to school! Holy crap, I wish that everybody ignored me when I missed a lot of school, but instead everybody at my school had to be absolute jackasses and make very rude comments and rumors about me...
Mmm, I wonder why Anaru didn't go home. Did meeting her parents didn't go as well as she thought it would?
Ahhhh, Menma, you're so sexually oblivious :P
And Jin-tan getting excited at the end xD
Holy shit son! Jin-tan was champ right there in the class. That speech was so awkward, but how to defeat awkwardness other than being even more awkward? :P
Though, the school direction really failed on that one, humiliating a young girl like her, that's really horrible.

This anime is so good aghh,
There is so much character development every episode. when they go to Menma's house and talk to her mom, I couldn't help but sob for a good 10 minutes (a little much, I know). The Hamtaro part was pretty funny too. can't wait to see what happens next!
I just realized I'm not watching this in hd and it looks amazing. Props to the animators. And not that it'd help with the students and rumours, but anjou could have called yukki to have him explain what really happened to the teachers.
Jintan saved Anjou from the rumors. It was pretty awkward. xD
I think Menma's mother knows something. That look in her eyes when Jintan, Anjou, and Poppo visited was pretty suspicious. I'm curious as to what's written in the diary. It seems like a plot ticket to me.
I've been thinking for awhile that Menma's wish might be for Jintan to confess to her and/or apologize for what happened that day. Otherwise, Tsuruko and Yukiatsu might be on to something, seeing that they remembered that Menma called everyone out to the secret base that day to talk about something.
...Hm, I wonder if that thing she wanted to talk about is why she chased Jintan, and further why she blew Yukiatsu off to talk about his confession later. If that's so, what she wanted to talk about must have been pretty important.
That girl who wanted Tsuruko to deliver a letter to Yukiatsu was acting all shy until Tsuruko refused. Beware the quiet ones indeed. .-.
That was the first nosebleed scene that I've ever found humorous.
seeingsasha said: the other kids at school are pathetic. jantan protecting an was nice.
when i saw the nosebleed my thoughts went to tumour and menma is actually a hallucination, hopefully not. that ans the fact the others could feel her disprove this.
This is exactly what I thought. He may possibly have a tumor causing auditory, tactile, and visual hallucinations; however, it wouldn't explain how when Menma went to her parents house she opened the door and her family saw it and said "The door opened on its own, can you close it."
Ah, what Jinta did to deflect attention away from Anaru was nice but uh ... still pretty embarrassing the way he did it XD They visit Menma's house and manage to get her diary ... then the conversation between Tsuruko and Yukiatsu - seems like they're pretty close huh? :P Plus it seems like the reason they all met that day when they were kids was Menma's idea ... maybe that's related to her "wish"? :O Well either way, seems like Menma has some interesting ideas about wanting to be (not) forgotten, and well I'm surprised that they never visited her house before! I guess they were kids after all? Oh well, looks like next episode the diary will be read and looks like Jinta talks with Yukiatsu and Tsuruko too. Looking forward to it :D I guess that's one good thing about watching after it's aired, no need to wait lol :P
