Ah man, just finished my last week of school. I’ve been so busy but I can’t believe that I’m finally done with high school. My summer vacation is starting! Then it’s college! WOOH! I’ll be super speedy with these updates now that I have more time. xP But seriously? This show just keeps getting better and better. I seriously cannot believe that there are only five episodes left. CAN THERE BE A SECOND SEASON PLEASE!?
We begin with Jinta watching scary movies and contemplating why Menma is here. He then thinks about her wish and how she wanted him to go to school. So, he decides to go! Menma’s kind of confused about his decision and after he leaves, she thinks about what Poppo said to her the night before. She doesn’t really understand why she is here either…
Smile and JK!? Jinta’s watching Occult Academy. I miss that show like crazy.
Jinta arrives at school and is super nervous about it. After all, how will people react to somebody who hasn’t been to school for over an entire semester?! Turns out that Anaru has stolen his thunder though as there are rumors about her being seen with a man in front of a love hotel. I guess it was that creeper that Yukiatsu saved her from. In class, the students keep whispering about Anaru being a loose girl and finally, unable to take it anymore, Jinta explodes. He yells at the class about how Anaru would never take money for sex and basically makes a complete and total fool out of himself to cover for her. Uh…is it too late to sign up for the Jinta x Anaru fanclub???? Actually, screw that – CAN I BE THE PRESIDENT?!
GO JINTA! *grabs pompoms*
Jinta starts getting into some embarrassing details about Anaru so she drags him out of class. Afterwards, she thanks him for sticking up for her. When Jinta mentions that she should go home, she flips out and decides to stay at Poppo’s place for fear of her mother getting angry for her behavior at school. While she’s cleaning up, Poppo decides that he wants to visit Menma’s place to see if they can figure out what her wish was.
Meanwhile, at school, some girls want Tsuruko to give Yukiatsu a love letter. She refuses to do so and the other girl gets pretty upset with her. Yukiatsu apologizes to Tsuruko later on for people getting jealous of how she’s always with him. I’m with Tsuruko on this one…that’s just plain annoying. -.- They get on the train and discuss Jinta and Menma – Yukiatsu is angry that he still gets caught up in Jinta’s pace and wishes that Jinta hadn’t called them all to the fort the day that Menma died. But it turns out that Menma had called them there instead!
“So, like, yesterday I bought these, like, SUUUPPERRR cute heels!”
After their visit to Menma’s house, Jinta and Co. have gotten their hands on Menma’s diary! Jinta doesn’t want to read it right away though, so he heads back home. He tells Menma that he visited her house and she gets upset with him because she does not want her mother to remember her. Jinta goes off on her about how she cares about everybody but herself and gets a nosebleed. Wow…so angry that you induce nose bleeding? Damn yo. He leaves and heads over to Poppo’s where he finds Anaru. His nose starts bleeding again and she accuses him of being a pervert. Perfectly normal response. The episode ends as Jinta realizes that Anaru’s clearly a virgin. Duh. xD
End Thoughts: Ah man, another marvelous episode of AnoHana. This show just won’t stop being awesome! Not that I have any complaints. In fact, I have none whatsoever! I’m always fangirling every time an episode comes out, throughout the episode and afterwards. I’m fangirling right now actually. I’m usually a closet fangirl so that’s saying quite a bit. xD
First off, let’s start off with Jinta saving Anaru. That was ADORABLE. He was so nervous that he squeaked! That was really brave and super sweet of him. Even though he called her a bitch in the first episode, he can’t stand people talking shit about her. I love how much the relationship between the two of them had progressed. They’re definitely becoming friends again and hopefully…more? Please? Either way, Jinta’s gradually coming out of his shell. That’s very good and his character is developing rather well if I do say so myself.
Also, the revelation that Menma called them all out on the day that she died is pretty big. Perhaps she wanted to discuss her wish? My money would be on that. Either way, the fact that she wanted them all to meet on that day is clearly significant. I wonder what she had wanted to say…
Finally, more sides to Poppo and Tsuruko were revealed through this episode. Poppo displays a sensitive side as he doesn’t wish to go to Menma’s house while she’s there. Also, with the Yukiatsu-fan-girls, Tsuruko obviously gets annoyed. I’ve probably said this before, but she definitely seems to have some sort of feelings for him. It’s also nice how he realizes that she knows him better than anybody else. So cute. xD
Menma looks irritated. Why?! She has noodles!
