Anohana Anniversary Event's Stage will Reveals What happened After 10 Years to Main Characters

The official website for the anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day anime series' tenth anniversary announced on Saturday that the event will include a stage reading that reveals what happened to the main characters ten years after the end of the anime.

Mari Okada, the anime's original scriptwriter, is writing the script for the stage reading. The event will take place on August 28, and the voice cast will appear in person at Chichibu in Saitama, the anime's real-life setting.

The event's title is "ANOHANA 10 YEARS AFTER Fes.," a deliberate reference to the "ANOHANA Fes." held in Chichibu in September 2011.

The project commemorating the tenth anniversary was first announced in March. To commemorate the project's tenth anniversary, character designer and chief animation director Masayoshi Tanaka drew an image (shown at right) of the main characters.

The television anime premiered in April 2011 and follows childhood friends who try to reconnect in high school after drifting apart five years earlier due to tragedy. The series spawned a manga, a film sequel in 2013, and a live-action special in 2015.

In October 2017, Aniplex of America released the English dub of the anime series as a Blu-ray Disc box set. That same month, the dub became available exclusively on Verizon's go90 service. In June 2019, Netflix began streaming the series with the English dub and subtitles.

The television anime was licenced and released by NIS America in 2012 and again in 2013. Aniplex of America collaborated with Eleven Arts to screen the film in theatres across the United States before releasing it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. In 2012, Crunchyroll streamed the anime as well as the live-action special. In January 2020, Crunchyroll began streaming the dub. In August 2020, Funimation began streaming the series.
