The official Twitter account for the anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day anime series announced that a 10th anniversary project for the anime is underway. A 10th anniversary website is now open, and staff will reveal more details about the project at a later date. The franchise will have an event on August 28.
The account announced the anniversary project featuring an image of the main characters 10 years later. Character designer and chief animation director Masayoshi Tanaka drew the image.
The television anime premiered in April 2011, and follows childhood friends who try to reconnect in high school, after drifting apart due to tragedy five years earlier. The series inspired a manga, 2013 film sequel, and 2015 live-action special.

NIS America licensed and released the television anime in 2012 and again in 2013. Aniplex of America partnered with Eleven Arts to screen the film in theaters in the United States, and then released the film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Crunchyroll streamed the anime in 2012 and also streamed the live-action special. Crunchyroll began streaming the dub in January 2020. Funimation began streaming the series in August 2020.
