** It's ''somewhat'' more understandable when Menma says she ''has'' tried to do the same thing in her house, but it doesn't always work. (And it's speculated that this may be because [[spoiler: her mothers's grief is too intense to allow Menma to contact her -- "Mama gets really sad", remember?]]). She could have simply assumed it wouldn't work with her friends either, specially considering how much they changed and grew apart after her death, [[spoiler: and episode 8's revelation scene came during quite the crisis between the former Peace Busters so she likely used it as a desperate measure]].

* {{Narm}}: All the crying and screaming in Episode 11, while not being [[TearJerker totally uncalled for]], can reach a point where it just descends into this and [[{{Wangst}} melodrama]]. ''Especially'' when [[TheBigGuy Poppo]] opens up over his trauma.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Viewers seldom have kind words for Aki and Haruna, who for the majority of the series are one-note [[AlphaBitch Alpha Bitches]] and [[PoisonousFriend awful friends]] to Anaru.


* MostAnnoyingSound: ''Jintan. Jintan. Jintan. Jintan...''

* SignatureScene: The ending of Episode 11.


* SpiritualAdaptation: It really comes off like part of Creator/KeyVisualArts' canon, what with the focus on family and relationships, the MagicRealism, and the drama calculated to make the viewer cry.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossoverShip: After [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh-PIXu6ccA this AMV]] made the rounds of the con circuit, Menma started being shipped with [[LightNovel/{{Toradora}} Aisaka Taiga]].


* ShipSinking: The end of the series implies [[spoiler:Jintan/Anaru]] and [[spoiler:Yukiatsu/Tsuruko]], but TheMovie outright scuttles the second ([[spoiler:Tsuruko confessed to Yukiatsu but in her words "nothing came of it"]]) and fires a supercavitation torpedo at the first, showing that [[spoiler:Anaru still has a long way to go before she can confess to Jintan, and Jintan has a long way to go before he can get over his SingleTargetSexuality toward Menma]].


* PuritySue: Menma. She has a million good qualities and no real significant flaws. She's selfless, pure, beautiful, innocent, loves everyone unconditionally, and is loved by all in return. Tsuruko and Anaru want to be like her, and Jintan and Yukiatsu are both still deeply in love with her even though she's been dead for years. This can be explained somewhat with her being, well, a pure and rather innocent little kid even by normal standards before her death, and literally not being able to change or mature from there.
** She may be a PuritySue, but she also works as a '''[[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]]''' of the trope. 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]].
