Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai. "We Still Don't Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day."), also known as 'AnoHana' for short, is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures and directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai.
A group of six childhood friends drift apart after one of them, Meiko "Menma" Honma, dies in an accident. Several years after the incident, the leader of the group, Jinta Yadomi, has withdrawn from society and lives as a recluse. One summer day, an older looking Menma appears before him and asks to have a wish granted, though she does not remember what it is.
It's a brilliant anime with a heart warming tragedy. It will bring tears to your eyes and sadness to your heart leaving you thinking about life and friendship aswell as family. The manga book is especially brilliant aswell as the series. I highly recommend this if you are into Manga and Anime. You will love it!
