* [[spoiler:{{Reincarnation}}: The name of the anime is about this. Jintan's mother told Menma about how a person can be reincarnated as another creature (such as a cat or a flower) after they die, and this becomes Menma's objective after she remembers her original wish. She wants to be reincarnated so she can be in the same world where her friends are.]]

** BrokenAce: Yukiatsu looks perfect, smart, hot and all, but he's got massive issues.



* BrokenAce: Yukiatsu looks perfect, smart, hot and all, but he's got massive issues.



* DeconstructedTrope: The concept of PuritySue is ''smashed to pieces'' here. Not only was Menma ridiculously pure and innocent (and kinda ditzy) because she died as a child and thus got mentally/emotionally stuck as a little girl forever, but it's made brutally clear how much pressure that kind of character would put on her friends: Tsuruko and Anaru remember Menma fondly but are also jealous and resentful of her because she (unintentionally) left an insanely high standard for them to meet when she kicked it; Jintan and Yukiatsu are very screwed up due to still loving her for a long time after her death, with Jintan unable to function in social situations and Yukiatsu cultivating an unhealthy obsession; and Poppo constantly has to put on a happy face in order to interact with others [[spoiler: due to his guilt after not being able to save her life]].

* 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. Meanwhile, Poppo also has gone back to school (although he did not quit working at the construction site)]].
