The official website of the Anohana (Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai) anime project has just announced that the story will be getting a movie adaptation as well! There is barely any information on the upcoming film, but it will be retelling the original story, but from another point of view.
The movie will come out in the Summer of 2013 and will be focused on the character Meiko “Menma” Honma.
The story of AnoHana follows this same Menma character’s life..or more-likely the life of her friends after her death. Jinta Yadomi is the main member of the ‘band’ where Menma used to be, too. Although the group of friend have drifted apart, intentionally or subconsciously, he is still there somewhere – still thinking about the past. In reality, no one has moved on from that accident – not the friends, not Menma’s parents not either Menma herself. As a spirit, she appears before Jinta asking him to grant her a wish, which she, however, does not remember. In order to fulfill her wish and allow her to pass on into the other world, he gathers all the former members of the band and all of them try to solve all the lingering issues and admit the untold feelings they kept hidden for a decade.
