Aniplex describes the anohana TV series as:
When we were kids, we were always together.
I was a leader of the group. I was confident. I wasn’t afraid of anything. Until that day that I said something to her — something I would regret for a long time.
I didn’t mean to hurt her. I just thought I would apologize the next day. But that “next day” never came. We all drifted apart, closing off our little wounded hearts.
Time passed, and one summer day a miracle happened. She appeared before me out of the blue.
“I have a wish that I want you to grant for me.”
However, she didn’t remember what her wish was. And so, to realize her “wish,” we will reunite once again at our secret base.
