* HiddenHeartOfGold: Anaru is surprisingly nice and pretty much a huge nerd under her jerkish [[{{Tsundere}} Tsundere-isms]].

* NotWhatItLooksLike: A classic one for {{UST}} purposes in Episode 7, where Anaru slips and falls into Jintan, dragging them into an intimate position. Then Poppo walks in, sees them... and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny promptly beats a retreat]].

* {{Jerkass}}: In his first modern-day appearance Yukiatsu has the gall to mock Jintan for not getting into a good high school and for mourning Menma. Then, in Episode 4, he tries to manipulate everyone into not working toward Menma's wish.

Then, in Episode 4, he tries to manipulate everyone into not working toward Menma's wish. Following Episode 5, he starts showing his HiddenHeartOfGold more frequently, only to eventually relapse into full Jerkass mode in Episode 10 when he sets a cruel trap for Jintan to get him to either confirm or deny his love for Menma, even emotionally manipulating Anaru into assisting him with this, and vows to get Menma's spirit to Heaven just for the satisfaction of knowing that Jintan can't have her for himself anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* NoAntagonist: The main obstacle that needs to be dealt with by the still living main characters are themselves and how they come to terms with a tragedy from their childhood that they never properly coped with. The characters closest to antagonists in the story are [[TheRival Yukiatsu]] and [[StepfordSmiler Irene Honma]], but both are sympathetic characters whose antagonism comes from the way they've mourned Menma's death, and the only real HateSink in the whole series is a single JerkAss upperclassman who tries to take advantage of Anaru in episode 5.





* 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]].



* 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.]]
