It had a good representation of grief. I experienced something not too far off and had similar reaction that Poppo had. It hit home and offered catharsis without making light of the affects grief has on people.
The show committed suicide by revealing Menma's ghost to everyone. It's a stupid decision as it showed that Jintan cannot do shit without Menma revealing herself. I still can't understand why did they do that. Definitely what destroyed this show for me.
I find it weird in hindsight that everyone can see the supernatural possession she does. Didn't she eat in front of Poppo when they were at Jintan's house? Why didn't she just let them all see from the beginning?

Holy fuck, I was really liking the show but this was just too much for me. I had to pause it and have a break, It was too cringe inducing.
Because ghost tears are a great lubricant...
