Ep. 7

Wow I almost teared up during this episode. Jin-tan is so nice and caring.. T^T

And Menma's mom is twisted. Why would she do that?

I think her calling Menma "Onee-san" is because Menma is the eldest daughter...

Great episode, I kinda laughed when Jinta goes, "I just thought you might feel better if I fed you." Reminded me of a pet or something heh.

Jinta is growing up and growing closer to anaru so it's really hear-felt. I have cried so many times watching this anime. so far... god. Also good anime is hardly ever talked about because people are watching it.

I've been following the series pretty closely, my observations so far is that her wish is NOT the fireworks, I think it's gotta do with what Yukiatsu mentioned in the bus about how Menma called them all over to meet but they were not to tell Jintan about it. After all, why would the anime's name allude to a flower, if it was about fireworks? I think the anime's name IS Menma's wish, for them to find a flower or the name of a flower, so Menma could give it to Jintan when she confesses to him

So episode 10, many questions about that one. First off, is Menma.. decomposing? She looked at her right hand twice and it was darker than the left, almost like a bruise. She said, "Miss, just wait a little more." Not sure if that has any significance but I thought it was interesting.


I was also shocked to see them reenact that day too. Poppo acted weird too with his, " "But I could only watch everyone in the end" "only watch..." So I think he'll play a major role in the next episode. Also, did anyone else get a 'Clannad' feel with the music around 19:53? Probably because it had that mystical feel to it but I dunno.

hmm you have remember this is Japanese drama/slice of life a bitter sweet end is going to happen, I will not be able to watch this or the last episode until the 29th because I am on vacation, but thanks for the tags and heads up. This makes a lot of sense to me and I wish there was more discussion on this show. If anyone is interested I will have a review up soon for ano hana when I get back.

I've been to lazy to post anything but here's how I feel about the show.

I've recently lost my taste in anime and I honestly have no thoughts about this show anymore. I don't think it's excellent anymore nor do I really care about it. It's entertaining, but that's about my only thought for this. Being my apathetic self, I didn't really feel anything for the characters. But... The show seems to have good progress. With just one episode left, we will probably see an ending that will be pleasing. Menma has not disappeared from the efforts of Jintan and friends (not the correct word but works). So, it's possible that she might be "revived" and become a physical being again. Although, I doubt this thought.

I'd rather see an ending where Menma moves on and the group will graduate from their lingering feelings of guilt and sadness. This would establish a moving ending, or at least it will for me. Given what has happened so far, I'd give this show a 7-8/10 or a Very Good.


EDIT: Didn't feel like double posting.


COPY PASTE OF MY ANN POST:


Finale

Well, to start off, I suddenly lost my interest in this show and kind of lost my mood for it, but I went ahead and watched the finale for completion and see if my theory about it's ending would be true.

And... Discussion:



My reason for my lost in interest in this show is the characters.


Overall, I'll give it a Very Good, depending on the criticism given by others, I might upgrade it to Excellent.


Do I recommend AnoHana? Yes, I do, it is a heartwarming tale of friends who regroup after years apart only to find out the distance between them have grown. If you can sympathize with this, you will find enjoyment within this anime. Some may view the show as force drama but I'd say it creates a new message of moving on.

Ep. 11 - Ending

This is how a drama should be like. Oh my god I was crying the whole time. BYE BYE Menma T___________T

Story: 9/10 A breath of fresh hair. They handled the story quite nicely to be honest.
Characters: 7/10 Not enough time for character development. But I can't complain since this is only an 11-episode anime.
Music: 8/10 Music is okay, not bad, not special either. Although OP and ED are both my jams. LOL
Animation: 8/10 I liked the animation as well. Sharp and colorful. (wut?)
Enjoyment: 9/10 I can say I pretty much enjoyed this anime, a LOT. I wouldn't rate it like this if I didn't. 2nd best of this season.

AnoHana: 8.2/10
If you're into warm, dramatic, slow-paced (kinda) kind of anime, then this is for you. I recommend it.

OMG this anime is too good. I was literally crying at the last episode. God, this show was so emotional yet it was amazing. Seriously, I didn't expect this show to be one of the great anime shows I've seen yet! So sad it ended T___T

From all the anime I've ever watched, Ano Hana was the first to make me cry, not watery eyes or just a tear, I was hyper ventilating. It was a little awkward for me, but still.

One of the best anime this season, and I'm so glad I didn't drop it. Menma is amazing and it just makes my eyes watery when I think about how she said Goodbye. I absolutely love this Anime, and I feel a live action coming this way, but nothing can portray anything better then the anime.
