Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day
When Yadomi Jinta was a child, he was a central piece in a group of close friends. In time, however, these childhood friends drifted apart, and when they became high school students, they had long ceased to think of each other as friends.One of the friends from that group, Honma Meiko, now has a wish she asks Jinta to fulfil. The problem is, she can't remember what her wish is anymore. As Meiko won't cease to bother Jinta about it, he gives in and decides to try to grant this wish he knows nothing of; for that, however, the help of his other former friends, now all very estranged from himself and from each other, may turn out to be necessary. He hasn't spoken to Anjou Naruko, Matsuyuki Atsumu, Tsurumi Chiriko, or Hisakawa Tetsudou in a long time; as he struggles to grant Meiko's wish and gathers his old friends together in the process, all the old feelings that still exist between them and have long been stashed away are bound to come up again.

One of those former friends, Naruko "Anaru" Anjō, drops by Jinta's house to drop off some homework, but is on bad terms with Jinta. As Meiko pesters Jinta to go to Naruko and talk about her, they both go into the city where they run into two other former friends, Chiriko "Tsuruko" Tsurumi and Atsumu "Yukiatsu" Matsuyuki, the latter of which reacts harshly when Jinta accidentally drops Meiko's name. Frustrated, Jinta runs off and leaves Meiko behind. Jinta recalls that he, Meiko and their other friends were part of a group known as the Super Peace Busters that hang out together. One day, Jinta accidentally hurt Meiko's feelings when asked if he liked her, but Meiko died in a accident before he could apologise to her. Meanwhile, Meiko visits her family's house.

Meanwhile, Jinta wonders why he hasn't been so focused on fulfilling Menma's wish lately. The next day, Naruko goes to a karaoke bar with her friends, when a boy forces her to a love hotel.

Forget It, Don't Forget May 19, 2011 Trying to figure out Menma's wish, Jinta decides to make his long-delayed return to school.

As Naruko becomes noticeably upset by all the nasty gossip surrounding her, Jinta stands up for her, and both leave class right away. With Naruko troubled about her parents hearing about the news, she decides to stay at the secret base. Hoping if there are any clues to what Menma's wish might be Jinta, Naruko and Tetsudō visit Menma's house to pay their respects, where they meet her mother, who gives them Menma's diary which they agree to read the next day. When Jinta mentions the visit to Menma, she becomes upset as she wanted her mother to forget about her so that she wouldn't be sad.

The Real Plea May 26, 2011 Jinta, Naruko and Tetsudō look inside Menma's diary, where they find an entry about how the group wanted to make a firework to send a letter to God to help Jinta's mother, though modern laws prevent them from making one themselves. As Chiriko asks Atsumu why he didn't bring up that Menma called the others on that fateful day, he points out it was something that was to be kept secret from Jinta. Jinta's father points him towards a friend of his that can make fireworks, but it's revealed one would cost 200,000 yen to make. Jinta takes up a part time job in order to help raise the money needed to buy a firework, working at Naruko's game store one day and Tetsudō's construction site the next. When Menma hears of this, she overhears Naruko talking about the firework and sees the work Jinta is doing for her. However the next day, the gang learn that the firework maker is no longer able to make a firework for them, under orders from one of Menma's mother.
