Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day (2011) s01e06 Episode Script

Forget It, Don't Forget

1 -OP- The wind whispers to me It's delicious.
It's beyond delicious! First of all, I have to make sense of everything.
Why is Menma here? Divine Wrath! The ghost of a mother-in-law tortured to death by her inhuman family strikes back! Maybe she can't go to heaven because she's clinging to some worldly regret.
That sounds about right.
I don't get it.
Because The Menma I know is always smiling.
Who could like that ugly I've always wanted to apologize to her.
And it goes beyond ordinary contrition.
I know that much for sure.
Oh yeah! Maybe that's my wish: to have you go to school.
School.
Upon pages and pages of entries nanpeeji mo tsuiyashite We still don't know the name of the flower we saw that day.
tuzurareta bokura no kibun We've put down all our emotions doushiteka ichigyou no But now I've hit a writer's block kuuhaku wo umerarenai I don't know how to finish this page anymore oshibana no shiori hasande Putting a bookmark in my diary You and I go out to ride the bike we found in the dumpster kimi to korogasu tsukaisute no jitensha wasurekake no renga wo Let's go to our secret place Where we piled up our bricks of memories tsumiageta basho ni yukou Run up the hill, where we can see the horizon umi wo miwatasu saka wo kakenobotte Where we can see the sky so fearfully blue kowaikurai ni aoi sora to migite ni saidaa hidarite wa With cider in my right hand zutto kimi wo sagashiteiru My other hand helps me search for you You used to come find me way back when souyatte ima wa boku no hou e You used to demand me of so much more toitsumeru koto mo nakute mada futari wa sugu soko ni irunoni You're both still standing right by my side Yet why do I pray to see you both again? douka mata aemasuyouni nante douka shiteru mitai There must be something off with me What? Why are you going to school? I shouldn't have to explain.
You don't have to force yourself.
What's up with that? Before this you were yelling at me to go.
Before is before, but now go forth before you! Jintan.
Don't worry about me.
But you look so grim Now I'm all set! Jintan? There's something you want right? You can rely on me a bit too you know.
I want to let you go to heaven.
Has Jintan's mom gone to heaven? I wonder what going to heaven is like.
I'm in control.
I'm in control of myself.
That's right.
My heart is empty Empty empty It's impressive how someone can act like it's no big deal coming to school after that.
I know right.
Are you talking about that first year from class 3? Yeah.
Her name's Naruko Anjou.
Look.
Anjou.
See? Looks like it was true after all.
Anjou? Looks like it.
No way.
Anjou? That's awful This has been really anticlimactic.
There are a few people who have noticed me Who's he? Maybe he's that guy who's never showed up before.
No way! She was called to the principal's office? Naruko really screwed up.
But I don't think going to a love hotel is such a big deal.
But Anjou's got me beat by a long shot.
Now that it's come to this I feel like I psyched myself up for nothing.
But Someone from the PTA saw her.
Apparently she was with some old guy.
You think he was paying her? But Everyone back to their seat.
Class is starting.
You can take a seat too Anjou.
Open up your books You messed up bad.
Let's see, the sentiment of this story's narrator is on several occasions tinged with rage.
First and foremost is his anger at that man and his wife's betrayal.
I'm amazed she's taking notes at a time like this.
She's always been that way.
She's not smart.
She learns slowly.
Try as she might Anjou's really out there.
Maybe she'll let you do her if you ask.
"Sense of self-respect as a man has been gravely injured.
" I didn't do it damn it! bullshit! Shut up already! Die! Anjou.
Coming up with whatever Help me.
Second is his anger at himself.
The contents of the letter allude to this fact.
"To assert my dominance as both a man and a husband before him" Maybe she'll let you do her.
Did he pay her? Hey guys Look at me.
I'm the guy who hasn't showed up to school in a while.
I haven't been to school except for the opening ceremony and the first week of classes.
How do I look to you? Ain't I a sight to see? "Ain't I?" What language is that? Umm Uh What? Could you be Yadomi? Jintan This girl I can give her a booty call any time, anywhere.
Are you all really making a big deal out of some love hotel? Shouldn't it be obvious looking at her that she's been to one a time or two? She's got that love hotel look to her! Hey That's why I'll only say this once.
She'd never take money for sex.
And besides, she's a Capricorn and has blood-type A.
She's never gone out on a limb, she's serious to a fault, and had this pissed off look when she wore glasses.
She's got tons of stuff and she's a neat freak She's collected tiny things since she was little.
And her glasses Damn, what a lame chick.
That's enough already! Get your bag.
Lets get out of here.
Wait.
Naruko.
"Look at me.
" You sounded like an exhibitionist.
Shut up.
But Thank you.
You covered for me.
I didn't really But I don't have "that love hotel look"! I've really never gone to a love hotel.
I've never even been inside one.
Yeah, sure thing.
What do you mean "Yeah, sure"? Don't worry about it, just head home.
Your mom's probably worried about you too.
Hey, where are you going? Your house is this way.
I'm not going home.
The school has probably already called my home.
She'll be angry at me.
She'd never let something like this go.
Hey, Anjou.
No.
That's not right Episode 6 Forget, Don't Forget.
Hey, what do you mean you're staying over? It'll only be until things calm down.
Until things calm down? I'll have you know that this place is my castle, and it's soaked up various manly fluids including but not limited to sweat and tears.
We all built it together.
Look, there's proof.
I carved out that Hamtaro.
Hamtaro? It looks more like a sausage than a ham.
I'll start off by cleaning up since that man juice stinks so much.
H-h-h-hey, don't touch those! What the? This is rotten! What are we going to do about her? Even if she stays over she should tell her mom about it.
Otherwise there'll be an uproar.
She's so timid.
She always huddled in Menma's shadow.
Hey Jintan.
Where's Menma now? She's not around.
Really? Then how about we go check out her house? We might get an idea about her wish that way.
You I want you to grant my wish.
Jintan? Oh, right.
Wouldn't it be better if Menma came with us? Yeah but, wouldn't it be kind of awkward to say "Hey, let's go to Menma's house", when she's right there? I didn't think you were that good at reading people's feelings.
Yeah, well, I did become a level 5 Shaman while I was in Vietnam.
Those exist? Great, now that that's settled, let's text Yukiatsu.
Let's see, what's his number We have exams coming up.
I'll be held up at school so I can't go.
Tsurumi's in the same situation.
From Yukiatsu About Today What's up with that? He's so cold.
That's how college-prep schools are.
I guess.
I'd thought that no one had changed at all after I saw everyone again.
But that's not the case.
People do change, little by little.
Hey, maybe we shouldn't go to Menma's house after all.
Huh? Why? Think about it, we've never even gone to her house to play before.
Yeah, Menma's dad was one scary guy.
But maybe this is a good opportunity.
I mean, I want to light an incense stick for Menma.
Yadomi? I can't help but think about how Menma's mom will react when she sees us.
I can't believe everyone came here.
Meiko would be so happy too.
Now come in, come in.
Could you say hello to Meiko? Sure.
What's bothering me? Menma's dead.
I've known that all along.
This is Meiko's room.
Go ahead.
Hey, Tsurumi.
Minako wants you to give this to Matsuyuki.
This is embarrassing.
We're all in the same class.
She should just give it to him herself.
Wait a sec.
Don't act so high and mighty.
You can't look down on me just because you're always by his side.
I know all about it! You like Matsuyuki.
What are you Tsurumi? Is something wrong? Let's go.
Right.
Heading home? Be careful.
There have been shady people around these parts lately.
People always get envious of you like that.
Sorry for causing you trouble.
I'm sure I'd be freed of all my worries the instant I sent out photos of you cross-dressing.
That's true.
Oh yeah, apparently Yadomi and the others are going to Menma's house.
Wow, so they're all taking what Yadomi said seriously.
Nobody can leave the past behind them.
You least of all.
I won't deny that.
You're finally being honest.
I couldn't get anything past you if I tried anyway.
He pisses me off.
Yadomi? Be it the school I go to, or my overall standing, right now I'm far above him in every way.
But I'm still getting caught up in his pace like back then.
He even spoke Menma's name.
How long does he plan to make a fool out of everyone? On that day.
.
If only he hadn't told everyone to gather at the secret fort.
Didn't Menma call us that day? That's right, Menma gave me a call.
She called? Wait, that's right.
She wanted to talk about something that day.
Yeah, she said she had something she wanted to talk about, so I didn't think she'd hand over Menma's diary that easily.
What a great mom.
But wasn't that depressing? My husband told me I couldn't stay obsessed with Meiko forever, so he cleaned up this room.
Meiko's things are in here.
What else can they do? Seeing her things will only make it harder for them.
If they see I don't really know how a mother feels, but I think having a child must be an extremely heavy burden in a lot of way.
You can say that with a straight face? Maybe I should head home.
It's not like I'm worried about my parents or anything.
I just remembered something I had to do.
See ya! She's not being honest with herself.
But anyway, we got the diary so let's head back to the secret fort and read it.
Could that wait a bit? I'm in charge of cooking dinner tonight, and I haven't washed the plates from this morning, so See ya! Then I'll go ahead and No, don't read it without me.
Don't do it! I'm all alone.
Seeing will only make it harder.
Then would it have been better not to have seen Menma? No.
But Welcome back, Jintan! How was school? I've already seen her.
Only harder So you know, I sort of went with the flow and went to see your mom today Confiscated! Huh? Confiscated! Confiscated! CONFISCATED! Hey! Why Did you do something like that? What do you mean why? Menma? If you do that my mom will remember me.
I'm putting my mom through lots and lots of sadness.
I don't want to make her any more sad.
I don't want to make her remember me anymore.
You may not want her to remember you, but that's impossible.
Because I don't care that it's impossible! Even if it's only a little bit, I want my mom to forget about me.
Yeah right.
You said yourself that you'd be happy if we all remembered you.
But Cut it out already! You're always worrying about others like that.
Think about yourself a little more! Your attitude pisses me off! You laugh it off even when you're hurt.
When you cry it's only for other people.
Why am I yelling like this? Jintan.
I'm Jintan! You have a nosebleed! Oh no! Umm, umm Here, stuff this tissue inside.
Wait a sec Tissue! And then lie down facing up! That way it'll get better.
Jintan? Sorry.
I'm going out for a bit.
This late? Jintan? What the hell am I doing? Really.
What am I doing? Yadomi? What are you doing here so late? What about you? Didn't you go home? And what about the way you're dressed? It's not what you think! I had some blood backed up in my nose already.
I swear it's not because you were turning me on Hey, calm down Get out! Pervert! Pervy-scurvy one-touchy! Now I have no doubts.
She's definitely a virgin.
