'Anohana'

The Anime you Need to Watch

'Anohana'

As a teenager, I was really into Anime, but as I grew older, I also lost interest in anime. In recent years, I have maybe only watched three, the first being SoA, the second being Erased and the third being Anohana.

Anohana is currently available to watch on Netflix, and I can only recommend that you give it a watch, even if you're not usually someone to watch anime. I had heard many good things about Anohana but mostly went in blind when watching it. I had no idea what this anime had in store for me.

Anohana is an anime about five high schoolers who used to be close friends. But after one of their friends, Menma, is killed in an accident, their group fell apart. One fateful summer, Jinta is haunted by what he believes to be a hallucination of Menma, asking him to fulfil her wish.As Menma herself doesn't remember what the specific wish was, Jinta has to seek help from his estranged friends, and together they set out to fulfil her wish to help Menma's spirit pass on.

Anohana is a beautiful story which is set in the city Chichibu, which is a city in Saitama, just outside of Tokyo. The animation is stunning, and visiting the sights of the anime, has become popular traction for fans of the anime.
