I'd give this episode an 8 if only Menma's VA wasn't so annoyingly typical moe-induced high.

Different strokes for different folks. My RL anime friends for example don't like AnoHana at all, but then again they're self proclaimed 'narutards' and dam proud of it lol. XD

But yeah, script writing was a definite strong point. By the time they overtly showed that Menma was dead, it was already heavily implied by prior conversations (which itself was natural and engaging, revealing a good deal about each character just from talking). While it was already expected, still tugged at my heartstrings when Menma visits her home (though of course, YMMV). Definite grade a plus work IMO.

Listening to a cover of ZONE was a nice surprise and brought back some memories. A very fitting song though.

It seems to me I may have found a candidate for best anime of the year.

Here is a characters/seiyuus page for this show, with pics of the six main characters and their seiyuus, and some info about each seiyuu. The male characters have two seiyuus: one for the adult and one for the child. The same seiyuus do both ages for the female characters.

Toyosaki Aki joins Tomatsu Haruka in another example of Sphere members appearing as seiyuus in the same shows. She plays Poppo as a child.

It's also good to hear Hayami Saori doing a version of her ojou-san voice as Tsuruko. Developing some range.

Kayano Ai, who plays Menma, appears to be an up-and-comer, with that super-moe voice. She will play one of the three main characters in the new Last Exile, and that is only one of four roles she is already slated for later this year. I'm still not convinced: the voice is a little much even for me. But I am getting used to it.

I actually feel Menma's voice a little too.... high-pitched. Maybe they want to show that she's still a little childish from the voice, but I just don't like it. Still, it doesn't hold me back from enjoying the first episode at all. That's how good this episode 1 is for me.

Same with me.

Looking around I'd really like to see more of Ogura Yui after seeing her in an episode of Ore no Imouto and in .hack//quantum and Menma would seem a nice fit.I wonder what someone like Aikawa Juri would have done with the role (she's sounding great in the latest Shinkai movie trailers).
But really the rest of the cast seems great (I never get tired of hearing Irino Miyu) so I can let it go.

Man, the first episode managed to buy me. The initial setting really interested me and I'm excited to see how Jinta and Menma will bring the the separated gang together. As with others, Menma's voice annoyed me a little, but its not so bad that I can't ignore it/get used to it.

Love it! the animation, the music, the lay-back slice of life feel, the expectation of good changes coming for the character because of Menma's ghost returning...

though we won't get to see Menma and Jinta together, Jinta has intrigued me enough to be satisfied with this show as long as he changes into a better person (into how he originally was).

Can't wait to see more!

I think Kayano is the next big thing as far as Female VAs go (and I based that off one ep of Merry after checking up who Isana's VA was lol) but I'm not exactly a fan of her Menma voice. Still this could be the role to skyrocket her career... I'm just looking forward to her Sket Dance character lol.

Different version. Original version was by Zone. The one used in the anime is sung by the anime's seiyuu.
