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 »

A good show brought down by the melodrama
3 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

My enjoyment of Anohana was held back by the amount of melodrama and inconsistent characterisation. If more of the minor character developments were handled with subtlety, it would have helped make the relationships between them feel less contrived. Some plot points felt as if they were included purely to get an emotional reaction from the audience, and a lot of interactions and sources of tension come off as superficial.

In spite of this, the ending still retained an emotional impact. While the entire final episode was a bit excessive, it wasn't enough to bring it down.

If you can connect with the characters, you will probably enjoy this show more than I did.
