Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, or Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai, is an 11 episode Japanese anime series within the supernatural and "slice of life" genres. While the series begins with six childhood friends having a close bond, five of them all begin to drift away from each other after the Menma Incident; their friend Meiko "Menma" Honma is killed in an accident.

Time soon jumps ahead an entire decade from the Menma Incident and focuses on Jinta "Jintan" Yadomi. Jinta, who served as the "team leader" of Menma and company, has become a reclusive hermit. Soon, a ghost of an aged Menma appears before Jintan and asks him to grant her wish so that she can pass on to her final reward. Sadly, she cannot remember what that wish is, which spurs Jintan to bring the whole group; "Anaro," "Yukiatsu," "Tsuruku," and "Poppo," back together in order to figure out what Menma's wish might have been.

Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day is written by Mari Okada and directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai. North American distribution of the series is handled by Nippon Ichi Software America.
