* LoveHurts: Almost every character, with the exception of Poppo, is in love with another, and aren't very happy that their love interest likes someone else.

* LoveDodecahedron: Jintan and Yukiatsu are both in love with Menma, who reciprocates Jintan's feelings. Meanwhile, Anaru and Tsuruko are in love with Jintan and Yukiatsu, respectively.

** Although, there's some question if Jintan and Yukiatsu were ever really friends, as the flashbacks indicate that the former was always [[GreenEyedMonster rather resentful]] of latter. Even more so than Anaru and Tsuruko were of Menma.

Added DiffLines:

* WeUsedToBeFriends: At the start of the series, it's most apparent between Jintan, Anaru, and Yukiatsu, whose relationships are the most tense. Everyone mostly gets along with Poppo, and only Yukiatsu and Tsuruko remained friends.

Added DiffLines:

* AbortedDeclarationOfLove: In the movie, [[spoiler:Anaru tries a couple times to confess to Jintan that she still has feelings for him, but ultimately decides against it. Instead, she writes it in her letter to Menma, satisfied that she will one day be ready to tell Jintan]].

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: Menma can interact with physical objects, carry them and can also eat normally but she holds the idiot ball for two thirds of the series not realizing than she can prove her existence by making objects float/disappear or by writing to the Super Peace Busters' members. It later gets lampshaded that Menma and Jintan can be TheDitz sometimes.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited[=/=]LoveDodecahedron: Tsuruko has a crush on Yukiatsu, but he is obsessed with Menma and later considers Anaru to be his ReplacementLoveInterest. Anaru is in love with Jintan, but the latter is also obsessed with Menma. Menma does like Jintan back, but due to her being deceased, she cannot be with him. The only one among the gang who doesn't seem to be part of the romantic loop is Poppo, but being TheBigGuy, it is likely that he will get the short end of the stick. [[spoiler:In the end, Jintan/Anaru and Yukiatsu/Tsuruko are given a MaybeEverAfter. This may change with the release of the upcoming movie.]]

* EarnYourHappyEnding: After much angst and tribulation [[spoiler:in which the group vent their anger and express their true feelings to one another, they are finally able to overcome the psychological traumas each one of them acquired after Menma's death, and Menma's ghost is able to say one last tearful goodbye to all of them. Jintan stopped being a hikikomori for good and started attending school regularly, and it's implied that he and Anaru will end up together as a couple eventually. It is also implied that Tsuruko and Yukiatsu are dating, though the movie says they aren't yet. Meanwhile, Poppo also has gone back to school (although he did not quit working at the construction site)]].

** EmbarrassingNickname: Anaru. In Japanese, ''l'' and ''r'' are pronounced identically, and ''n'' is the only consonant that doesn't need a vowel on the end. Jintan seems to realize it now; [[TheDitz Menma]] doesn't. [[spoiler: [[DontExplainTheJoke It sounds like "anal".]]]]

* RuleOfSymbolism: The name of the flower they saw that day? Forget-me-nots. They adorn the OP and ED, and pop up frequently in the anime. It also makes Jintan's words about fulfilling the wishes of those flowers all the more meaningful.

* DeathOfTheHypotenuse: Deconstructed. Back when they were children, Anaru liked Jintan and Tsuruko liked Yukiatsu, but both boys liked Menma and the girls, despite caring for Menma, felt that they couldn't compete with her. Menma's untimely death, only made things worse for all of them, since such a tragedy ''tore the group apart'' and showed that, in reality, the demise of "the person who gets in between" does NOT equal to the others getting together: the guys got so broken (and Jintan already had his own issues) that no girl in their eyes can match the very high standard that Menma had left, with Jintan becoming a {{hikikomori}} and Yukiatsu both considering Anaru as a prospect "back-up girlfriend" (and neither she nor Tsuruko, understandably, are happy with that) [[spoiler: and wearing dresses similar to those Menma used to wear]].

* {{Tsundere}}: Anaru. Jintan tsuns back at her quite a bit, as well.
