I'm sure most of us have been there with the nostalgia. For me, I didn't have much of a childhood as a shut-in, but my nostalgic memories came during my secondary school years, first playing Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow with my two oldest friends and then onwards to when I made more friends during my GCSEs and having some hardcore Phantasy Star Online sessions with them. Four guys huddled around my mate's small TV and Gamecube, playing four-player co-op... Ah, those were the days for me... ^_^

I'll be getting that Kleenex/handkerchief ready... ;_;

So I came across this article/thread summation with speculations Yukiatsu may be crossdressing as Menma. Thoughts on this?

^ ... Oh God, I thought it was just some lulz inducing joke or crack theory but that screenshot definitely implies that much. Aside from the watch, the figure doesn't look like Menma's either so...

There are two people who wear that watch. The other girl who’s friends with Yukiatsu (Chiriko) also wears one.

Join my voice to the chorus: Misao from Asura Cryin'.

I love how I can't pigeonhole any of the cast here into convenient labels. Definitely hooked to the end of this one.

Well - that would fulfill the recent NoitaminA crossdressing requirement...

I'm not a huge fan of Haruka Tomatsu as a seiyuu, but she is far from one-dimensional. Nagi from Kannagi isn't tsundere, either.

I'm a huge fan of her instead, but yes she's not one-dimensional. The tsundere specialist label was probably given to her because she played several tsundere roles in a short period, in 2009 (Ikaruga Akane in Asu no Yoichi, Mana in White Album, Aoba in Cross Game, the Kirishima twins in Nyan Koi), but especially after that she has proven she can provide many more voices than those. All of her main roles have been mentioned already, but I'll just repeat the two that particularly impressed me: Kisaragi Yamaguchi in Geijutsuka and Hitoha in Mitsudomoe.

...

Methinks the words "CANNOT UNSEE" spring to mind... D;

If that is really the case... Really, Yukiatsu? Really? The sniffing clothes thing, fair enough (still dubious about how he obtained them, if they really do belong to a now-dead Menma), but now putting on a wig and scaring people in the middle of the night? >.<

God, this should be fun/interesting to watch... :S

O-O~

I was merely refraining from the other (and more obvious to us anime fans) thing(s) a crossdressing Yukiatsu could do... ;P

tsundere means aloof (tsun) and sweet (dere) in the same time. Needless to say that there are many ways to be aloof and sweet.

Anaru's aloofness doesnt come as violent or screaming but it is still there. So yes. she should be considered somewhat a tsundere although not the Type A for sure.

She got pretty flustered when Poppo called her in public by her nickname. Although, to be fair, I'd be mad too if my nickname sounded like 'Anal.'

She has won my heart forever when she double high five'd Jinta after obtaining a rare Nokemon. A geek at heart.

Yeah, in my mind when I call her Anaru I'm imagining that it's the other meaning of Anal, as in anal retentive...we know from last ep that she does things like labeling things with her name, so it kinda fits if you stretch it a bit.

Sorry, just could not resist... XD Though admittedly that's a nice alternative way of looking at things...

I can't wait to see Anaru's development episode, just to see if she goes through with dropping her "galpal" facade. It'll definitely be an interesting watch (plus she needs to lose those "galpals" pronto >.>;;;)...

O-O~

Anyone else who can't stop listening to the opening?
I just love the sadness in the last 5 seconds right before it ends

I hope it's Chiriko. It'd be disappointing for this series and creepy if it's Yukiatsu whereas Chiriko'd be a better choice for this. She's irritated because of Yukiatsu obsessed by Menma so she may dress like her in order to attract his attention.
It looks Poppo see this Menma so it has high chances it isn't really her.
