AniDB wrote:Once, there was a group of close childhood friends. However, by the time they entered high school, they had grown apart from each other. These are:

Jin-tan - The hikikomori.
Anaru - She just wants to hang out with her girlfriends.
Yukiatsu and Tsuruko - These two are proper school-going students.
Poppo - Rather than enter high school, he had opted to do some travelling.
Menma - The one unchanging constant of the group.

One day, Menma meets Jin-tan and asks him to fulfil her wish. For this, these widely separated companions gather once more.

in the first episode Jin-tan is the only one who can see her;
she remembers nothing but is driven by instinct; which is all
she has left .. .. you see, 10 years ago, she died!

I thought episode 1 was pretty alright; lovely animation, but I'n growing tired with these moe characters in shows. :|
Still, I think this'll end up being really good. I'll be watching episode 2 later today.

Yeah I gotta agree.. moe characters are getting old.
The first episode wasn't all that great.. I mean annoying girl, and hikikomori guy who doesn't give a damn...
I gave it a second chance and watched second episode... I can calmly say that it will probably get better... I guess I'll watch it to the end
And most of all it's supposed to be tragedy... I don't know why but I like tragedies... they're often emotional and great material for amv :D :up:

Episode 2 was better (and not only for the blatant Pokemon references. :ying: Also lol, Dojimon).
And I'm starting to like Jin-tan more!. :up:

Yeah you're right... I think he will slowly start to socialize with more people and probably regain his self-confidence.
+ Nokemon & Dijimon were truly the cherry on top of a pie :)

Definitely seeing the director's influence. I enjoyed H&C and Toradora, so far I'm liking this okay, has my interest for now.

Menma is annoying me less, so this is progress. I did feel bad for her when she cried looking at Jin-tan's mother's picture though. :c
Episode 3 was enjoyable: Poppo is seriously my favorite character. 8-)

I actually don't know how to feel about the ending of episode 4. At first I wanted to laugh but... wow. I just don't know. o-o
'Looking forward to episode 5!

Oh man, this show... was bumming me out, but I was really into it.

Then episode four happened.

...wtf. I don't even...

Okay, either it's a joke, or Yukiatsu is seriously deranged... either way, kinda uncool. Kinda definately uncool.
I mean, I'm okay with the laughs so far, but I was really starting to take this show seriously. Guess I can't do that anymore?

o__________o

I just got caught up on this.....wat.

Spoiler :
It's pretty obvious Yukiatsu had a thing for Menma...a really...mentally unhealthy thing...

Either that or he's a giant troll.

I'm waiting on the others being able to actually see her. Have a feeling that the more they hang out/reconcile, the more readily she'll appear to them.

Interesting...will continue.

This show is pretty good.

Spoiler :
If I was any less of a man, I might have cried for Yukiatsu. He's so boned.

I kinda like how Anaru's friends are kinda easily dismissed as whores/non-characters.

I agree with our resident Coralian, Poppo is indeed the best character in the game.

I think I like Jin-tan less and less each episode.

Anyone hating on Menma needs to leave. Now.

Love triangles with a ghost? Count me in.

Episode 5 sorta left a sour taste in my mouth. :\ I'm not really sure if its because of Yukiatsu or the fact that its so painfully obvious how Jin-tan can prove Menma's spirit is among them.
Before I watched episode 5 I thought I'd feel bad for Yukiatsu, but... I dunno, I still felt the same. And since when do small children know about love anyways? They must've been like 4 or 5. xD
Jin-tan could easily just be like 'Menma, grab Poppo's leg' and then Poppo would feel it and everyonr would believe him. Better yet, throw a sheet over her head; she can interact with inanimate objects anyways.

Regardless, I am still enjoying this show and its message of friendship. I don't really know where its going to end up, but I'm hoping for a good ending.
