Added DiffLines:

* In the live action drama, we actually see the young Peace Busters' reactions to Menma's death. All five of the children look down at the river that took their friend, tearfully crying out her name as if they're trying to call her back. It's one of the most heartbreaking flashbacks in the series.


** Let's just say the entire final episode, in which all the characters and most of the viewers spent most of it bawling their eyes out. Chances are your heart strings were twinged or a lump brought to your throat... or just full-on bawling.

** The song "I Left You", playing when Menma appears to be dying a second death due to her wish being granted, TheReveal that her wish began with a promise she'd made to Jintan's mother, and Jintan carrying Menma over his shoulders as he rushes back to the Secret Base.

** At the start of that episode, Yukiatsu's total meltdown after he's found out to have been crossdressing as Menma and admits his guilt over what he believes was his part in killing Menma, and how he'd been expecting Menma to appear before him to haunt or curse him for that.

** One of the worst instances of this is in Episode 10 when [[KickTheDog Yukiatsu calls for all the friends gathered at the Secret Base to reenact "the question" that had driven a wedge in the group and indirectly led to Menma's death. (The question being "Do you love Menma?", directed at Jintan.)
