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 »

All About Feels!!!
4 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I am big fan of the anime genre, so this might prove biased, but even then i would recommend it as one of the most emotional anime ever. There are other anime of the sad types but this connects on the different level. Those who have lost a close loved one will relate to it at some point (I did to the whole story). And this anime is specially for them too...But all can relate to it as well.

Superb Animation quality backed up with natural voice over and the sad awesome story .....U WILL and not just may literally WILL find this anime AWESOME!

JUST WATCH IT ALREADY!~~ITS AWESOME !!! !! !! :D :D
