[Completed] – We Still Don’t Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day

Japanese name: あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない。 (Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.)
Season: Spring 2011

This was a heartfelt anime that (almost) made me cry. It ended on a good note.

At some point in time, I actually felt like dropping this anime. What had me to pick it up again was the many positive reviews it had. Watching it over again, and paying close attention, I’m starting to like it more.

This follows a group of childhood friends, Jintan in particular, shut himself out from the outside world when the spirit of Menma kept pestering him. It turns out that only Jintan can see her, but Menma can interact with objects. Jintan gathers his other childhood friends to help send her back to heaven, though they think he’s crazy. Trying to achieve exactly Menma wants was not easy, like money to make fireworks, and conflict among each other.
