Aniplex has released a special 10th anniversary music video for Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day. The video features the song “Aoi Shiori” by Galileo Galilei, which served as the opening for the 2011 series.
The supernatural drama previously received an event on August 28 to celebrate its 10th anniversary, while a visual featuring the grown-up versions of the still-living members of the Super Peace Busters was released in March. As Anime News Network reported, the event featured a stage reading that revealed what happened to the characters 10 years after the anime.
Anohana‘s staff included Tatsuyuki Nagai as director, Mari Okada as scriptwriter, and Masayoshi Tanaka as character designer, with A-1 Pictures as the animation production company. Nagai, Okada, and Tanaka, who collectively formed the Super Peace Busters creative team, collaborated on the teen drama anime movies Anthem of the Heart and Her Blue Sky after their work on Anohana.
Anohana premiered in 2011 and received an anime film sequel in 2013. The anime also inspired a novelization, manga series, visual novel, and TV drama. It also won the Spring 2011 Run-off Polls of Anime Trending’s Decade Awards.
Crunchyroll describes the anime as:
Jinta Yadomi and his group of childhood friends have become estranged after a tragic accident split them apart. Now in their high school years, a sudden surprise forces each of them to confront their guilt over what happened that day and come to terms with the ghosts of their past.
