It's 11 episodes (most noitaminA animes are 11 episodes - Eden of the East, Fractale, [C], Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 etc.).

Just watched the first 7 back-to-back. Why did I put this anime off for so long after it began?

Anyway, time to wait for episode 8...

^No, Jintan's collapse was due to overworking himself.

Anyway, this episode was pure win!

You can really see the frustration and emotional involvement of each character through out the episode.

I'm glad that Menma finally proved that she can affect reality as a ghost. With this , hopefully they don't perceive Jintan as just being paranoid and everyone can now move on forward with the story.

Anaru pulled a desperado! With those type of gestures, it's like a sudden-death situation. The relationship will either collapse or the bonds they form will be even stronger. I hope their relationship improves and Jintan finally returns her feelings.

My eyes were in tears at the final moments of the episode. After a little while, I went back to watch the final scene again, and my eyes teared up again. Wow, such powerful stuff.

So I am guessing the story will really pick up steam at this point, since this looks like the climax of the show. I am beginning to feel like I should have skipped this episode and wait for the next one before watching both. It will be a hard week to wait for what is next.

Trust me, I've rewatched that final part several times now, it's that good... ^_^

...Of course, the buildup to this one scene was thanks to everything else that happened before it in that episode (and, you could say, it's been a long time coming in the series)...

O-O~

EDIT - Also, that confession scene was brutal, Haruka Tomatsu in fine form. She definitely knows how to convey the feelings of a messed-up girl on the brink...

I have been thinking this for a while now, but Jintan's dad is a wonderful and understanding parent.

8/10 vote on this ep for me - the show continues to deliver!

Excellent stuff!

So Menma's mom just can't move on and still blames them. Scary when she was grabbing Tsuroku's arm like that.

Wow Anaru finally confessed all her feelings. Jintan totally blind-sided by that.

Nice to see Jintan recognize the importance of parents and how awesome his dad is.

Interesting that he was able to talk to Menma's brother.

Yukiatsu almost busted up Jintan twice at the end.

Finally Menma take's action and realizes that she can interact with the world. Te final scene had me in tears.

So we finally get to Tsuroku's guilt next week.

I have an inkling that this has been said before, but this is the most realistic portrayal of characters that I have seen. Ever. I see no stereotypes, just typical teenagers and parents who are trying to cope with what they lost in the past and life itself.

Think I'll add a little more later once I've slept on this one.

Man, this stuff is bad for my heart. Weekly dosage is too much. They tear up your heart with a broken down mom then a break up friends and a girl's confession. And finally hitting you mercilessly with a ghost is real!!

From the start of the show with everyone showing up to meet up with Menma's parents. The mom's who's beyond despair for her daughter death and still her friends are the same and happy. The torment of seeing it.

The friends who can't see or feel the same pain of someone who kept seeing a walking nightmare or a curse morning till night. And the friends who also wants to see her back but can't. Breaking up of bonds.

A girl who likes the same person from childhood days till present who continues to watched him and her feelings was been poured out of her chest but still it didn't reach the guy who's been shackled by his past in physical form.

The guy who kept moving for for keeping the promise even if he himself is alone. Still moving forth even if his too tired to move on. And his dad was cool they are really father and son. Like the scene where he called forth the neighbors so divert those 2 gossiping neighbors attention away from Jinta.

Little bro also admires his big sis even if he has little memories about her.

The ghost finally make her move. From calls to message. Gathering up the group. Confrontations of friends. That guy snapped again -_- well I kinda understand it.

Then finally a overkill move. To prove she is not just a hallucination but a real ghost that can affect reality. A written statement in the diary.

This show is just superb that I can't describe it as mere work. Though it's too much crying can get a little annoying or getting used to it so it's not that much of an effect but the emotion in it is genuine that it makes you forget that your seeing it again and again in a weekly basis.

Mom stole the episode IMO. Now we get why Honma dad put away Menma's stuff... Honma mom is on the brink of insanity as it is. Maybe Honma dad ain't so bad after all, and that maybe there's a reason for him not wanting to shoot the fireworks.

And bah... not even a smidgen clue for YukiaTsuruko, but I guess that's just being greedy considering the awesome JintAnaru scene we got.

Now we know why Menma's brother acts the way he does. While it's tragic that their family lost Menma, you still have a son...count your blessings, mom. .

I feel sorry for Menma's brother. I really understand how he felt.

Can't wait for next week. The ending is superb.

I've got to stop watching this right before bedtime. How am I going to sleep after that? I actually applauded the ending. Just wow.

Oi, oi, if Menma could just do all of this to tell her existence to everyone, I feel that she could have just done it sooner.
At least now we have more more weapon to defeat yanderu Menmama with.
I thought maybe she couldn't do anything physically and everyone she had done was just Jintan's imagination or something like that, but it seems that isn't true. But Menma has done stuff like lift up food and eat it... Yet Pidg... Poppo didn't react to it.
......
Well, maybe you shouldn't think too hard on that.
It was like a horror movie though. Scary, scary...

That was an amazingly powerful ep on so many levels, but one little thing really grabbed me. Just when I thought they really needed some fleshing out, Jintan's Dad and Memnma's brother got just that - it was perfectly timed. And what did Jintan say to the brother there, right after the scene change?
