I'm a big fan of the Ano Hana series, and rate it in my top 2 most tear jerking anime. When I heard that a movie was coming out, which was a gonna be a recap from a different perspective, I was a little apprehensive to say the least, whether or not they would be able to come anywhere close to how good the series was. Let me tell you I wasn't disappointed. Without further adieu let me start the review.

Story 8/10
Now this movie isn't flawless, but none the less very enjoyable. To give you a summary, it basically revisits the major events of the read more

I just watched this film at the Aniplex showing at the downtown independent. There was no reason for this movie to exist other than as a cash grab. The movie added nothing to the series except tacking on that menma was apparently a loner? Way to tack on the typical pseudo character development cliche onto a character that still remains completely shallow. This movie wasted its opportunities of having character development in all sectors. They turn popo into a running gag instead of developing him (granted they did 2 good scenes showing off his character)and Jintan remains just as shallow as menma. They act all read more

I watched this movie when it premiered in downtown LA and I didn't really know what to expect. I had just finished the series which was great timing and the quality of the series gave me high expectations for the movie. However the movie basically just retold the story of the series and added in a few extra scenes. The most entertaining part of the movie was the actual "letters to Menma" scenes. Where all the characters are thinking of what to write. These scenes really reveal the feelings that they didn't communicate in the series, and tells what and how much they've changed since read more

AnoHana: Letters to Menma follows in the tradition of countless other anime movies before it - that is, it functions mostly as a recap of the original series with some new scenes sprinkled throughout.

If you've seen the original anime (and if you haven't go watch it right now before you read this review), then you're familiar with the story and it's resolution, so I'll spare the summary. The actual movie itself takes place roughly a year after Menma's wish has been granted, and catches up with the rest of the Super Peace Busters as they gather together to write their own letters to Menma, sharing read more
