THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
No OP since it's final ep.

Menma's wish was for the sake of Jintan (it's ok to cry).

So sad about the ending. (raised the rating to 10 with this ending)

Better than [C]'s ending...but still slightly disappointing.

It was the generic ending everyone was expecting and they didn't fail in that sense. It's just that they could have done so much more with the ending. Good show overall, but it started to lose steam where it mattered the most. At least we didn't get some lame Key end where everyone's problems are solved by magic.
Ok™

not "MOU IKKAI, MOU IKKAI"
thats "MOU II KAI?" calling to the ONI (in this case was Menma)
and the answer to it is" MAADADAYO!(wait a moment )" or "MOU IIYO!(now its ok)"

Yukiatsu gave the hairpin to Tsurumi in the end? Because she had the old one.

Oops, sorry for the little mistake in my post.
Menma is not ONI, she is a player in this case.
other members were the ONI

Whelp. Watching it in a language that I don't know with people that I don't know.

I was laughing the whole time. So I probably won't be able to take this last episode seriously when I can watch it and understand what happened.

"Cry - Argue - Laugh - Running - Panic - Yelling - Cryx10 - Yell Again - Happiness" = AnoHana.

_____________
Anjou's crying will forever be stuck in my head...And with that, I applaud Tomatsu Haruka...

Menma disappearing slowly & Jinta not being able to see Menma anymore probably were the highlight of this episode. The guy went absolutely crazy. I can only imagine going about my business then seeing 5 teenagers running around screaming for a person who's been dead for10 or so years.

Decent ending. This will probably be the only satisfying ending with animes having 11 episodes this season.. Gonna miss this series, great realistic characters, something most or everyone can relate to & that immense nostalgic feeling I get while watching this & then suddenly hearing "dat ED" at the end of the episode...

Thanks goodness for the lack of shipfaggotry in the episode and the epilogue. I know Jinta's giving back the handkerchief, and Tsuruko's wearing the hairpin (well, that one really implies something), but I don't care about implications.
Lots of bawwing and shouting in this episode, props to the voice actors for making it so emotional, really.
As for my general opinion on the anime,I want to wait for subs for the last episode firstly but... it's basically something like that: realistic emotions, but basically unrealistic story and character relations. I'm not even talking about the fact there was a ghost which could only be seen by one person for God knows what reason, but man. For eight episodes no one came up with an idea of Menma writing a message. Yeah, Atsumu said it was Yadomi not wanting to share Menma with everyone, but really? It was only said on the very end, after Menma said she wants to talk with everyone. And at some moment the story became a romance which basic idea was "after 10 years I'm still in love with this or that person who I fallen with when I was 6 years old", and this or that person was either a ghost or a person who loves a ghost. Also, Yadomi was so desperate that he even thought of marrying a ghost, and here we have him moving on like it was nothing. He also comes to school normally... Hey, why did he stop coming there and became a hikikomori in the first place?
...okay, I'll stop for now, maybe I'll write an opinion and let some of you rage after I actually understand what were they talking <3.

From what I saw of the raw, it was the ending I expected. The main characters were able to come back together and move on in life, or in Menma's case death. I didn't think there would be some Menma is live miracle.

Beautiful end to the show. It was very touching with all the emotions involved.

Finally Menma can rest in peace and the rest can move on.

See how great God is, he made Menma appear to all below

that one scene showed how great of a miracle it was.


Since this is the end, I know present my theory even though it is strictly of religious intent. The hospital scene was absolutely crucial to comprehend as to why I think that Jintan's mother may have asked God to give Menma more time on earth to fulfill her promise towards Jintan that the mother wished for. Although I found Menma absolutely adorable here with the apple that looks like a bunny one. My point is in the following spoiler
noticed how the interaction goes from Menma promising to fulfill Jintan's mom wish to the mother being happy about it and the happiness flowing up. Based on that part there multiple foreshadows that Menma's time was indeed limited as follows,
  • The hand again in the spoiler
    , that part says it all that Menma knew but needed some more time. It's a show of materialization lost.
  • When Menma was laying in the spoiler
    was a aggravation of the effect.
  • Finally her last writing in the spoiler
    showed she was out of strength even to write or do much. Considering that she could not even walk with Jintan and he had to carry her over to the secret based.
All of these really are foreshadows that Menma was going away. Thus her time being over and IMO there should have been some angel shown taking Menma away but sadly only a white screen so that's too bad. Just happy God did make everyone see Menma at the end make her own wish come trued apart from Menma's deal with God/Jintan's mother of what she was sent to do. A true bliss of being able to fulfill a promise and to confirm everyone's love. Not sexually or romantically but friendship that is stronger than love. They say that sometimes.


Important points for me in a consize way,
  • It it to absolutely note that Poppo is now the most traumatized person in the show in the spoiler
    he is the only one who saw Menma's body last and thus her death. Now I feel really bad for Poppo. As if that was enough his freaking crying in the spoiler
    made me tear up man. A lot and for the first time on Poppo. You got feel bad for the guy. This was a amazing revealing.
  • I found extremely interesting the interaction between Tsuruko and Menma in the following spoiler
    now that was nice but I was more worried with Menma, hey man! She could have fallen in the canal and die too.
  • I was a little bit confused as to why Menma smiled towards Jintan in his state in the spoiler
    I will think it could be that she wanted to have more time to fulfill that promise she needs to fulfill.


About the end, so what does the end of this series show? Well it's really nice because it shows much of the characters going to progress with each other even Poppo. Jintan giving Anjou her handkerchief and seeing her
blush towards it was amazing! Nice progress. Unfortunately Jintan has a problem with a girl since she hits in the head with her bag and it was just hilarious in the spoiler
while the other one protects Anjou from Jintan's hands.

It looks like Tsuruko/Yukiatsu are getting along very well in the spoiler
not to mention Tsuruko is wearing the new pin Yukiatsu got. I am guessing the old one is being kept as a childhood safe keep.

Poppo on the other hand is self studying, which is a self progressive educational way. So in the end it ended to everyone moves on rather well.

BTW the end art in the spoiler
is very nice and I need someone to analyze this flower for its meaning. Please help, the last flower analyzing was very nice to have known.

The Flower:
Myosotis (pronounced /ˌmaɪ.əˈsoʊtɪs/;[1] from the Greek: "mouse's ear", after the leaf) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae that are commonly called Forget-me-nots. Its common name was calqued from the French, "ne m'oubliez pas" and first used in English in c.1532. Similar names and variations are found in many languages.

so "forget me nots" IE another play on remembering / not being forgotten


It seems indeed Everyone is now moving on , and Menma too. And the "ships" also seem to be on course also with the Handkerchief return scene and Hair clip scene

All in all a very well done episode and very well done series.

Best of the series spring in my opinion~

I had tears in my eyes... because of laughing. Seriously, they overdid the bawling badly. Otherwise, it wasn't so bad, but nothing great either, IMO. Well, but on the whole I enjoyed the show.

But most probably wrong (the one from ep 10). Could not find the right flower still, but I think the family would be Hypericum, some are pretty similar, but could not find an exact match.

Otherwise, nice ending, and very good series overall. Will miss Tsuruko...

Poppo's "confession" is what made me start crying. He actually saw her body go down the river/stream, and he kept that to himself this whole time.

He's the only one I felt sorry for.

I'm so "LOLWTF" about people slamming the ending. They all got to see her, they all got to say a good proper goodbye, and she went to heaven. How was it supposed to end? LOL! Yeah, it was corny, but it was expected XD

...also, completely random, but I started laughing when I saw Jintan's dad's eye mask - It blinked! LMAO!

I also laughed when Jintan ran out of the room screaming "MEENNMMAAAAAaaaaaaaa!". It was like when Luke yelled "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo!" in "Empire Strikes Back", and when Vader yelled "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo!" in "Revenge of the Sith.

Shit.. I seriously died watching this.. @______@
Jintan freaking out when he couldn't see her killed me..

I'm really satisfied with this ending even though it wasn't a Jintan x Menma ending I was dreading to have where they would somehow end together..
I'm also glad they didn't finish it off with a time skip and have the entire gang hook up with each other. *cough*Anaru Jintan.
I'm glad they ended it with everybody being friends. ;_____;

Starfish girl was better.

The first meeting was such a mess, just a bunch of faggots bawling out, but the ending was quite nice. The middle of the series really dragged on, but it ended on a good note so I am content.

I would like there to be at least an ova where it shows how much the characters have progressed now that they have come in terms with menma. Or maybe a second season where it focuses on the reincarnation of menma.

The ending is good (8/10).

Remember is was only an 11-episode run. There wasn't a ton of time to completely flesh out characters nor create a complete atmosphere. However they did a good job! Definitely recommending to my circle.

Final Score 9/10

I like the ending seriously but it couldve been better if they ended it with 5 or 10 years later showing what they are doing in their life

FOR EXAMPLE:

Jinta has a short hair now
Anura and Jinta are in a relationship or married someting like that

anything that tells what they are doing in their life

well whatever
IT WAS A FUN AND EMOTION RIDE.
this is one of the anime i can relate.

Not too bad, but not amazing either. Decent show worth a watch, but can't touch the top shows of the season.
