With Jintan's passive attitude through out these episodes, he doesn't even have the balls to do something like that -_-

Man, I think I'm jumping ship... lol *sigh*

unlike Yukiatsu, he doesn't like to play with people's feelings. This has nothing to do with if he has a pair or not.

Yukiatsu gets an A for effort, anyhow. Drying Anaru's tears like that was a smooth move.

Maybe now we'll finally get to see what's up with Tsuruko.

So Yukiatsu admitted his love for Menma to her father in order to let them make the fireworks. Since it was the mom the whole time that was apposed to it.

At least they all believe in Menma now. Lol when she was giving them food Tsuroku and Anaru were both freaked out.

So Anaru can't get over not being like Menma. Only to have Yukiatsu hit on her again. he way she jumped back with that pose was great. Wonder why Tsuroku had a smile on her face when she overheard that though. I thought she wanted Yukiatsu, i guess it's better than him thinking about Menma the whole time.

So Popo gives hints about what he's guilty about. He just wants to know the truth about how she died? Seems like he just misses his friend.

Jintan finally admits Menma's cute! That scene at the end was great when he stops her from entering the water and tells her to stay forever.

Wow, this episode sure is funny in light of last week's heated discussion. I'll leave it at that, it's a solid episode, but...

-Lots of interesting hints in this episode. I guess Jintan was afraid that if she touched the river and followed the carp she'd be whisked away to the afterlife. Judging by the splash that one huge carp, unless it was Menma who caused the splash.... But if she caused the splash why isn't she wet?

-By the way when Poppo trails off it sounds like he was about to ask either 1) if she liked him or 2) if she blamed him; i.e. for her death.

-Also about her not being able to write with Anjou's pen and paper....could that be because she can only interact with objects she interacted with during her life? Such as the wood in the 秘密つきち 、 or the diary she had as a kid?
...Or could it be because Jintan didn't want her to communicate directly with Yukiatsu and break their special connection? Yukiatsu obviously was going to ask her about what she wanted to meet with them about on "ano hi."

They zoomed in on her barefoot feet today, so I'm sure they're going to talk about her shoes pretty soon. I bet she'll interact with them too...

Yeah well... I guess it's possible since they can both 'move on' instead of being stuck in the past.

I don't wanna sound like i'm being too technical or analyst, but how is she able to keep baking fresh new muffins unless they have a ton of supplies which she all touched somehow before she died. I don't get the "not being able to write on Anjou's notebook," it could have something to do with her not being able to see Menma. But then since Jin touched the notebook before handing it to Menma, and he can see her but she still can't write on the notebook. ??? (Confusion)

^Maybe because Menma just needs to have an association with the thing, such as the fact Menma's mother made muffins in the past.

What I don't get is what happens to shrimp after Menma eats them.

Interesting that writing doesn't work everywhere. I wonder what's up with that?

Also, it was incredibly funny to see them react to Menma while they were eating the muffins. They're all like wtf????

It's also good that most of them are starting to realize and admit their problems; that's the first step towards healing, and Yukkiatsu was really smooth with Anaru. I wonder if they'll tell us more about Tsurikko. Surely, she's not too happy about Yukikatsu casually considering these things with other people, but not give her a single thought. Actually that just seems to be a recurring them all around with everyone.

And so now they're in on it, Jintan's not alone. But is it really right to have Menma stay here forever?

Rating:9/10

no Menma needs to leave their lives. Everybody needs to move on. If Anjou and Yukiatstu go on a date next episode I think its going to be short. Tsuruko and Yukiastu somehow will end up together by the end of the episode leading to the finale to see Jintan give an answer to Anjou's confession while Menma finally disappears to the other world.
