Storyline

Six childhood friends have grown apart over the years following the death of one of them, Menma. The original 'leader' of this friend group, Jintan, is currently aimless in life and it is at this point in his life that he starts to see Menma's spirit. She states that he may be able to see her because of a wish she would like fulfilled but is unsure of what that may be. Due to Menma spurring Jintan into action, we will see the various paths the members of the friend group have taken over the years as they have matured, as he attempts to fulfill her last wish.

Trivia

The original draft script by Mari Okada featured more slapstick and more erotica elements, but was changed heavily during planning to include more supernatural elements - turning it into a much more contemplative slice-of-life story with a quieter tone. Much of these changes came from Director Tatsuyuki Nagai and character designer and chief animation director Masayoshi Tanaka. See more »

Just Awesome...
4 May 2011 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

{This is my very first review so please forgive my simple writing}

In one word, inspiring.. Just from the very first episode it grabs hold of you and never lets you go... I've only just seen the three first episodes and I'm already hooked.. The storyline is really unique and dramatic, the characters are all very interesting and very well developed, the animation is superb, top of the line, the music fits with the scenery really well and of course there's some comic relief now and then ... Just mesmerizing... Perfect... If the slice of life genre of anime is something you might be interested in then look no further!! See for yourself, you will not be disappointed..!!!!!
