What is this Anime about?
Im still not fully sure…but what i know is that when everyone was young in this anime they all used to hang out together and even created a club called the “Super Peace Busters.” it was during one of there times in the “secret club house” that Naruko ANJOU confronted Jinta YADOMI about his love for Meiko HONMA aka Menma. he blurted something out about how no one could love her because she is ugly and stopped in the middle of his sentence. he ran away embarrassed and went home. Apparently Menma tried to follow him and ended up drowning in a river that was near by. Flash forward a few years and everything is now very different. Jinta is now a shut in and everyone just went there own seperate ways. Both Jinta and Naruko blame them selves for Menma’s death and two of the others in the old group kinda hate everyone else now. As Jinta was playing a game Menma showed up and started talking to him. Jinta believes that this is all just a hallucination brought on by his stress. She asks Jinta to help her fulfill her wish that she had before she died. Now he is trying everything he can to accomplish this.


sorry its backwards U_U

Where is it heading?
well if i had to guess i think her wish was that everyone remains friends for ever so she is going to start pushing that everyone gets together again. also i think that as everyone gets closer Menma will start becoming visible to everyone again before she leaves forever when everyone is back together

My opinion starting out
This is a cute, heart felt anime that I think is meant to make us realize and cherish our friendships, then again that could just be me and i am reading way to into this anime. This is defiantly worth the watch though ^_^

Rating so far
I don’t remember every seeing something like this before. I mean sure its a Slice of Life and a Tragedy anime but the way this is playing out i have not seen before so I’m giving it a 5 out of 5.
(this score is based on how original the anime is starting, 1 means that is is way to over played, 3 means that it has some originality to it but it’s sticking to what is safe. 5 means that the anime is starting off with a completely original idea. )

So what do you think? The only way to make these posts better is if you tell us what we can improve upon so please leave a comment to help us get better (^。^)
