Aniplex of America announced in November 2013 that it will screen the Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai. film under the title anohana The Movie: The Flower We Saw That Day in select theaters in the United States starting this Saturday. Aniplex of America will also screen the film in Canada on February 9 and 12. Eleven Arts is distributing the anime film with English subtitles.

Those who attend screenings will receive limited quantities of an exclusive "Letters from Menma" replica of letters the character "Menma" writes to her friends in the film. Attendees will receive real flower seeds with the replica letters.

The movie opened on August 31 in theaters across Japan. The film retells the anohana story from the character Menma's point of view with a new epilogue.

The film opened at 64 theaters and then expanded to about 100 theaters. The film sold 161,225 tickets for 198,177,700 yen (about US$1.989 million) in its opening weekend. As of October 27, the movie was seen 754,341 times and earned 1,009,290,700 yen (US$10.334 million).

The Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai. television anime series debuted in Japan in 2011. Crunchyroll streamed the 11-episode series online. NIS America released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD under the title anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day last year.
