Details on theater listings and screening dates will be announced at a later date.

The Anohana the Movie is a movie adaptation of the anime series with the same title. It depicts a tale of 5 childhood friends who have drifted apart from one another following the death of their mutual friend, Meiko “Menma” Honma. These friends come together once again when “Menma” appears before one of them as a ghost and tells him that she cannot pass on to the afterlife unless she is granted one last wish.
