We might be at the "where there's smoke" point with the Menma's father theories. Don't forget she has an otouto, too, so anything revealed about her father has real-time implications.

Yeah, I didn't get any real "molesting" vibes from the brief visits to her house, myself. But anything's possible, I guess.

The term "child abuse" is broad and doesn't necessarily imply anything sexual. Physical and mental abuse is just as damaging to children.

You can just taste the tension in the air in that household. Whereas her mother and brother still seemed attached to Menma, her father seemed VERY detached from all of them. And notice how Menma's mother looked at Jintan. There's something afoot there (either that or a red herring of some sort).

The key to all of this seems like Menma's diary. We'll find out the real revelations from there.

O-O~

To be fair, Menma seemed to really like Jintan, so it's possible the mother knows something about her daughters feelings toward Jinta, so the way in which she looked at Jinta could have been nothing more than the memory of the strong feelings her daughter had toward one of her friends.

Not quite serious, but if it dosen't rule out the fact that's probable.

Never can tell which direction this series 'll end up taking.

Definitely a rather dull and/or trivial one considering the aegis under which it airs... but we can always hope there have been exceptions

I guess that "cat box" theory is less probable now. It can still somehow fit with a stretch, but I'm gonna scratch that and believe that Menma is actually a real ghost. However, that leaves me bugged why didn't Jintan make Menma show that a lot earlier.

Seems this rules out my theory as well. Damn, I was looking forward to it being possible.

Jinta never made Menma show anything. It was all Menma's idea. I don't think Jinta cared whether anyone else believed him or not.

The episode 10 preview only had one scene. Jinta is dropping off mail to Menma's household and running off.
