I didn't think I would cry about this anime. I mean, I knew it was sad. EVERYONE who knows about this anime, knows it's sad.
If you don't know about this anime...
SPOILER! IT'S SAD!
If you don't know much about the storyline...
It's about the white hair'd chick, Menma. She's dead. Yeah, dead. No spoiler there. You figure it out in the first 2 minutes. Only one dude can see her, Jintan. Jintan is the dude on the far left.
Everyone in the picture use to be friends as a child until Menma passed away. After that, they drifted apart and Jintan became a hermit. >.>
Everyone thinks he's crazy and gets upset about Menma.
But then they start to wonder if he really is telling the truth.
They decide to figure out what Menma's last wish was so that she can go to heaven.
That's basically it.
Now you know.
So, I mean, it's sad. I knew that. I just didn't think it was going to make me cry. To be honest, I don't know if my tears were happy or sad tears. A little of both maybe?
There are some love triangles in this and some weird, crazy parts that make you think that some people need some mental help. >.< But it's actually a really good anime.
I'm not gonna say it was my favorite and I'm not going to say that it was retardedly sad because it wasn't. It had enough sadness to make me feel and enough funny parts to make me really love most of the characters.
I feel like there wasn't the same amount of time for each character. So, you couldn't like each one of them the same.
Of course, the main story is more about Jintan and Menma so I guess it didn't really matter about the others... But at the end you kind of wanted to know more about the others because of how much Menma cared about everyone.
You just don't really know what these kids went through with her passing except for Jintan.
On a side note... You just wanna hug these parents cause these are probably the most understanding parents I have ever seen. Seriously....
The art was nice. Some parts were pretty, flowing and just nice to watch.
The art in general is pretty normal?
The OP is pretty catchy to listen to. I didn't skip it and I felt like it didn't mess up the anime. Like some songs just ruin the moment? This one didn't.
ED song I didn't really listen to... It's one of those ... meh... songs. You know?
