I'm starting to wonder if Jintan will ever find out if she's a ghost or not.

She might very well be some kind of spirit,the audience will know that but the characters won't.

This show makes me sad. I hope everybody gets to see Menma one last time.

If Menma had appeared in a dream and asked Jinta to reconcile the gang, then her appearance could be explained as a psychological phenomenon. But she's always accompanying him and influencing others as well: Remember when she hugged Anaru in ep1? Anaru felt the weight. The puppy barked at her and she can open doors. She is almost like a half-materialized being, not a manifestation of Jintan's desire to return to normalcy. Menma is real and not a result of Jintan's stress. That's why, in spite of their interactions, I can't really feel any connection to Menma and Jintan which is sad, because the story revolves around these two.
Have you ever watched shows about ghosts? That's normal for shows with ghosts, that's the main idea behind them. They are not part of imagination, they are real.

Everyones definition of slice of life is different. Personally I don't really believe in genres in the strictest sense. I'd say Anohana is mostly a drama with elements of slice of life and a touch of fantasy.

If it makes you feel better you can think of it as a “Romance”, oh no wait she’s dead, I guess that makes it a “Thanatophilia” instead. Actually, since your age is measured in “years you lived since you were born” I guess it could be called “Paedophilia” as well. j/k

I see zero slice of life. Slice of life is like a "reset" of sorts. While there will be an ongoing and over arcing plot, things will remain the same for a long, long time. Sitcoms are slice of life. With this series, things are progressing and moving forward. No slice of life.

I'll probably laugh at this show if at some point Yukiatsu or Jinta falls in love with the "hallucination".

The definition of Slice of Life may vary from person to person. Yours is one of the interpretations, for many people elements of slice of life can just be characters doing everyday things. For example getting up, eating, playing videogames, hanging out with friends, water plants. A moving plot doesn't necessarily rule out slice of life, they can coexist as far as I'm concerned.

Simply put its not slice of life, its more of a drama/fantasy/romance/something-else (with slice of life elements). Now, if you want, of course you think of it as the best mecha series this season, whos there to stop you; heck whatever makes you comfortable watching it, just go for it.

I'm...speechless.

This show is...wow.

It's good. It's so good. It's too good. Pacing, animation, music, characters, setting, emotion. Anime lives.

Now excuse me as I go and sniff something important I hid in my closet.

The thing is anything with "slice of life" elements gets called slice of life these days,it's not something I really agree with,for exemple in the animesuki 2010 awards both Cross Game and Kuragehime got nominated.

The definition is pretty clear on what is and what isn’t. However we have to take into account why the categorization exists in the first place; so if calling it slice of life makes everyone happy, and is how people understand it as, then so be it.

Finally got over my Madoka Syndrome and started watching currently airing anime again.

And wow, its only the second episode but AnoHana continues to impress me. I like the fact how this episode closely hits me home when they started playing Nokemon. I remember those good times when me and my friends would just crash at each other's places and play Pokemon together...good times...

I'm glad to see that Popo and Anaru hasn't really changed that much from the past and it was great seeing them and Jinta hanging out together.
