Even though the group is able to launch their rocket, Menma doesn't disappear. Jintan and the others are dumbstruck and wonder what might have happened. But finally, Jintan discovers what Menma's wish really was.
The time has finally come to grant Menma's wish. However, Menma discovers that her hand has started to become transparent. Holding on to all their strongest feelings, the Super Peace Busters blast off.
Although they're still hesitant, Anaru and the others begin to believe in Menma's existence after she serves them the steamed bread she prepared. Yukiatsu, however, still can't understand why Jintan is the only one who can see Menma.
Looking through Menma's old diary that they got from her mother, Jintan and the others find Menma's wish. And as they resolve to grant it, the time that had seemed to freeze for all five of them begins moving forward again.
The Menma that Yukiatsu "saw" was just him in women's clothing, a revelation that leaves the rest of the group stunned. Yukiatsu lies motionless on the forest floor after taking a spill, where Jintan tries to talk to him about his situation.
Yukiatsu tells Jintan and the others that he has just seen Menma. This puzzles Jintan, since Menma was standing next to him the entire time. Jintan and company head out together to search for "Menma" and get to the bottom of this little mystery.
