Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai 01

Let’s start off with what the whole gist of this show is about..

Basically ‘Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wo Mada Shiranai’ means: ‘We still don’t know the name of the flower we saw that day’.

There were six childhood friends. From left to right: Poppo, Naruko, Jinta, Menma, Yukiatsu, Tsuruko. (P.S. Menma totally looks like Index..)

They were the best of friends who would play together in their small log cabin.. till an incident that happened one day, one that changed everything. since then, they all grew apart and Jinta became a shut-in. Read on to find out..

Jinta seems to be the only person who can see Menma (most probably a ghost) and keeps attributing her as his hallucination from his stress.. woah but she is one moe character for a ghost. But of course, as he is the only one who can see, hear and touch her, people mistook him for a psycho.. Moe ghost..!!!

Jinta asks Menma why she appeared as a mature version of herself.. Menma counters: ‘ Wakanai-ttebayo..!!’ (I don’t know..!!)


Apparently, Menma needs Jintan’s help to fulfil a wish for her, and she says.. ‘Wakanai-ttebayo..!!’ (I don’t know..!!) but she says it’s a wish that would only come true when everyone’s together..


Naruko pops by later and of course, she doesn’t see Menma. But then she left with a ‘shouldn’t u be ashamed..?’ towards Jinta.

Later back at her house.. she admits, talking to herself.. ‘The one that should be ashamed.. is me…’

Taking a stroll.. he meets Tsuruko and Yukiatsu..

Jinta accidentally talking to Menma leads Yukiatsu to get a little worked up and saying bad things to Jinta..

And finally, to talk about the incident that caused them to drift apart.. Back when the six of them called their group the ‘Super Peace Busters’..

Naruko pops a question to Jinta while all of them were gathered in the cabin..

Hey Jinta.. You like Menma dont you..?


There should be no secrets in Super Peace Busters. (LOL)

To which Jinta bursts out..

Who would like an ugly girl like-

And everyone turns to look at Menma.. thinking that she would cry since she was such a crybaby..

But then..

This face just made my heart ache.

And Jinta runs back home.. thinking that he would probably apologize tomorrow..

But that tomorrow.. never came.

And then.. All of the Super Peace Busters.. just drifted apart.

Jinta left Menma alone after the encounter with Yukiatsu and Tsuruko.. However, he realises he couldn’t leave her after all.. And Jinta realises..

I've always wanted..

..the tomorrow after that day.. the tomorrow when I could apologize to Menma..


Jinta sprints back to their old hangout, but insteads  meet Poppo who has now developed quite a weird fetish..

Overall, I thought that the first episode was great, and I can’t wait for the next episode to come out..!! This season is so full of comedy and funny animes, but this however, is a story to see through and another emotional one to watch..!!

And so, doodler signs off.. SUPER PEACE BUSTERS..!!
