According to an announcement made on the AnoHana official website , a movie of the series will be getting a film adaptation in 2013. The movie is set to air next year in Summer. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない, We Still Don’t Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day.) which had aired last year 2012 in Spring had wooed many hearts with its beautiful art and story and bringing many a fan to tears. The movie will directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai, who had also worked on amazing series like Ano Natsu de Matteru and not forget Toradora!.
As we have not received any extra information yet about the plot of the movie but, I hope it’s not just a compilation of the anime episodes.
A group of six childhood friends drift apart after one of them, Meiko “Menma” Honma, dies in an accident. Ten years after the incident, the leader of the group, Jinta Yadomi, has withdrawn from society and lives as a recluse. One summer day, the ghost of an older looking Menma appears before him and asks to have a wish granted, reasoning that she cannot pass on into the afterlife until it is fulfilled. Since Menma does not remember what her wish is, Jinta gathers his estranged friends together once again, believing that they are the key to resolving this problem. However, hidden feelings, internal conflicts, and lingering feelings of bitterness from Menma’s parents result in complications for the group as they struggle to help not only Menma move on, but themselves as well.
