I thought it was a weird place for the episode to end, but good none the less. And yeah, not gonna lie, I fast forwarded through Jintan's class speech, was just too awkward for me to handle. And I feel so sorry for Menma's mom, she seems so lonely.

And yeah, the random Occult Academy clip in the beginning was pretty cool.

Disease flag just went up for Jintan or it could be the heat he eats too much junk food and lives a pretty much unhealthy life. Anyway great episode excellent lines:

"Definitely a Virgin"

Quoto of the day.

So many disscusions about nosebleed... like if you have never had one out of nowhere? I think it is quiet normal. Now if he will keep having them, then it will be a problem.

finally Jintan got some guts and stood up for poor Anaru and looks like her friends do care after all.

Tsuruko's and Yukiatsu's interections are always fun. Looks like being caught crossdresing had its positives effects, he is not annoying anymore.

I didn't mean exactly like the Sixth Sense, but just that I feel that there's a possibility that there's more to Menma's odd manifestation than meets the eye. I mean, it's a little strange that for someone who is supposed to be dead, she acts so alive. Her appearance continues to bother me too. Why appear as a more grown up version of herself? If the show was really trying to push her as a moe character, you'd think keeping her as a small child would be better. Let's face it, she's not exactly in a fair competition with Anaru as far as sex appeal goes.

My mind went there too, but wow how would they pull something like that off convincingly?

I get them sometimes in drier times of the year (like Winter), and yeah...it sucks. But I think people are discussing it mostly due to the trope in anime, and the fact that this is mostly a drama. So he's either following the trope, the nosebleeds are simply random, or we're getting a hint that something is wrong with him. I agree with you, if they show him with more nosebleeds, the third option is the likely one. Otherwise it's just him being horny imo.

I think it's just anxiety from hearing all those people talk about him and anaru.

I'm disagreeing with the disease part.

1 she can an effect on other people when she jumped on them
2 she can move things (more like a poltegist)
3 she's eaten food.
4 she evn made muffin bread can't be all in mind.

Honstly this was epsode dragged on after school,

I don't think Anaru's "friends" were actually worried about her. Their first response when she got in trouble was that she messed up. They were the ones that put her into that situation, so I think they were more concerned that Anaru would receive punishment from the school rather than all the rumors flying around.
It was only after Anaru pulled Jinta out of the classroom that they looked truly worried.

Wow, didn't expect Jinta to save Anaru.

Hope he takes her home next ep, that's no place to leave a girl.

'Ecchi, sukecchi, one touchi'... Where have I heard that before? *scratches head*

What's up with people skipping the 'oh so awkward' speech because it was too awkward to handle?

I loved it, was good to see Jintan taking a stand and defending a friend for once.

For example, "Kore wa Zombie desu ka?".

^ I heard that line before from Kore wa Zombie Desu ka.

I don't think Jintan has a disease. It's might be stress from the events that had happened that day. He finally attended class after a long time, defended Anaru by speaking out loud (he even stutters), went to Menma's house which he is uncomfortable with, and then before the day ends, Menma started crying again. But if the nosebleeds occur more frequently, then he really might have a disease.

Awesome episode. Everyone emotion is hit at some point in the episode, yet agian.

The animation is waning a little since we are half way in, I hope it gets better.

As for the story... I will never get over how in Japan what you do out of school impacts you in school. I know why they do it but... it's just so stupid and unfair.

But kudos to Jinta there. I don't think he should have even commented on Anaru though. He should have made a big enough disturbance to override her gossip.

I want to go with one of each. But Anaru wasn't really wearing anything that revealing.

Quote:
Since Menma is dead, Anaru is his only possible partner, if he ends up with one.
I hope they pair up in the end, or there is some hint to it. Aside from it being sweet for Anaru, Jinta needs a good girl to help him out of this rough patch here.

Yes, it's a great line, isn't it.

Best scene in the episode for me was by far Jinta standing up for Anal (that sounds very wrong, doesn't it? Blame Menma for giving her that nickname ). His speech was confusing and incredibly awkward, yet still awesome. Him having such a hard time expressing himself in public is a nice touch.
Yes, seeing him struggle to do what he knew he had to was a nice tough. And when did Menma nickname her "Anal"?

Quote:
Calling it now. The reason he's the only one who can see Menma is that he's close to death. Or maybe it was just a simple nosebleed. Ohana had some too. I guess Mari Okada loves them, huh?
Yeah... brain tumor... that would be so bad, lol.

You get a better sense of Menma's family in this episode as well. The differences in mourning, Menma's worry over her mother. It's interesting to note that even though they packed up Menma's belongings, the room is still unused.

So we get a few more hints about Menma's wish, confirmation that Anaru is a virgin (there's a disturbance in the force, as if millions of otaku suddenly squealed in joy), and Jinta has nosebleeds of questionable significance. So far I'm really enjoying the pacing for this series, it's laid back but eventful. It doesn't seem like things are progressing much, but things are already quite different from where we first started.

I'm starting to wonder though, if the reason Menma's "ghost" nature isn't being called into question is because we're going to get some kind of Sixth Sense style twist. It would be awfully cliche to get some kind of tearful goodbye scene as Menma disappears because gosh darn, mystery solved.

At the end Menma is going to wake up in the hospital with a sprained ankle and have her friends all around her.

I almost forgot to mention that! I love when they do things like that. Man that was a great series.

Yeah, that was unexpected.

(He did go "There is a weird guy around..." to the two girls though... Which would be him, yes, and also, Tsuruko telling him that he could scare them all off with his crossdressing )

Felt bad for Anaru during class. Good thing Jintan stepped up even though it was so awkward.

Lol that girl called out Tsuroku, but she was just like whatever. Seems like her and Yukiatsu figured out that Menma called them together that day and what ever she wanted to tell them that day is probably her wish.

Felt sad when they were visiting Menma's house. Really felt bad for the mother.

Menma did have a point with not wanting them to go to her house, but i agree with Jintan's speech even though he shouldn't have yelled at her. What was with that nosebleed though.

Ending was the best with Jintan's line.

I was waiting for Tsuroku to call the girl a coward for not giving him the letter herself.
