Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day

Fuji TV 2011

Jinta Yadomi is peacefully living as a recluse, spending his days away from school and playing video games at home instead. One hot summer day, his childhood friend, Meiko "Menma" Honma, appears and pesters him to grant a forgotten wish. He pays her no mind, which annoys her, but he doesn't really care. After all, Menma already died years ago.At first, Jinta thinks that he is merely hallucinating due to the summer heat, but he is later on convinced that what he sees truly is the ghost of Menma. Jinta and his group of childhood friends grew apart after her untimely death, but they are drawn together once more as they try to lay Menma's spirit to rest. Re-living their pain and guilt, will they be able to find the strength to help not only Menma move on—but themselves as well?

    This is such a powerful and moving anime that deals with the effect of the loss of a loved one and how much it can deeply change us, young or old. In particular, the anime focuses on the effect of Menma's death as a young child on the 5 remaining "Super Peace Busters" group and it's very interesting to see how much her death has and, more interestingly, not changed this once close group of friends. There is an incredible driving force of guilt and jealously that permeates throughout the show, and so this anime is ultimately a story about the journey to resolve these emotions in order to let Menma rest in piece. A lot of the characters may not be completely likable in certain ways due to each one having every obvious flaws, but all those serious flaws interacting with each other are the times when the anime shines best. This is definitely a roller coaster of emotion (perhaps some tears along the way) but I loved the ending which resolves things very nicely. This is a touching story and a can't miss if you're interested in a more dramatic and moving anime. Watch it!!


    The ending is really painful, not as painful as Clannad but one of it's kind, the Voice Actors really nailed it in the Last Scene. It takes me back to those old days when I used to play with my friends without worrying about anything else.


    I basically cried in every episode.. my eyes hurt, damn it, i guess im too sensitive


    Crying in all episodes and the end...:sob::sob::sob::sob:


    This is all about love, friendship, loss and growing up. Such a beautiful story that makes one thinks about your own life and your loved ones.


    If you have seen My Girl with Mccauley Culkin, this brings about the same effect. Its a heart warming, tear jerker.


    I've got a pavlovian response to the ed now


    This is a real tear-jerker


    This anime became the very first anime on making me cry.


    Basically my fav. This is so freakin good and it makes me feel so summery BUT ALSO makes me feel like crying HAHA Watching it on a summers day is perfect.
