The official Twitter account for Anohana The Flowers We Saw That Day has revealed a special music video for the series’ 10th anniversary on the day of Menma’s birthday (September 18). The video features the song “Aoi Shiori” performed by Galileo Galilei, which was also the opening song for the original TV anime.

Besides the music video, Anohana recently had a special event for its 10th anniversary as well. It was held last month on August 28, and there was a live stage reading which revealed what the show’s characters’ lives were like now, 10 years later.
Anohana: The Flowers We Saw That Day aired as a TV anime in 2011 and it had 11 episodes. This eventually led to a manga adaptation, and it then got a movie in 2013. Besides those, the series also received light novel and visual novel adaptations. Crunchyroll describes the story 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.
Happy Birthday to Menma!
