* DeathOfTheHypotenuse: Deconstructed. Back when they were children, Anaru liked Jintan and Tsuruko liked Yukiatsu, but both boys liked Menma and the girls, despite caring for Menma, felt that they couldn't compete with her. Menma's untimely death, only made things worse for all of them, since such a tragedy ''tore the group apart'' and showed that, in reality, the demise of "the person who gets in between" does NOT equal to the others getting together: the guys got so broken (and Jintan already had his own issues) that no girl in their eyes can match the very high standard that Menma had left, with Jintan becoming a {{hikikomori}} and Yukiatsu both considering Anaru as a prospect "back-up girlfriend" (and neither she nor Tsuruko, understandably, are happy with that) [[spoiler: and wearing dresses similar to those Menma used to wear]].

* OfficialCouple: Though [[MaybeEverAfter not explicitly stated]], the ending hints at [[spoiler:Jintan/Anaru]] and [[spoiler:Yukiatsu/Tsuruko]]. The movie [[spoiler:says that they unfortunately did not become a couple yet.]]



* {{Tsundere}}: Anaru. Jintan tsuns back at her quite a bit, as well.

When Menma died, it only made things worse for Anaru and Tsuruko since while now they can hang out more with the guy they like, Jintan and Yukiatsu have become obsessed with Menma and both are quite screwed up because of her death.

* {{Expy}}:
** Menma, especially as a child, looks exactly like [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Flonne]]. The fact that their dress is almost identical makes it even more apparent. Their [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} airheadedness]] is almost on the same level and though Menma is not as fanatical a {{love freak}} as Flonne, she would definitely go out of her way to make it so everyone would get along.
** Anaru herself looks a lot like [[VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII Jessica Albert]].

* MarketBasedTitle: The localized version of the series is called ''[=AnoHana=]: The Flower We Saw That Day'', presumably due to the [[LongTitle ridiculously long original title]].

* EarnYourHappyEnding: After much angst and tribulation [[spoiler:in which the group vent their anger and express their true feelings to one another, they are finally able to overcome the psychological traumas each one of them acquired after Menma's death, and Menma's ghost is able to say one last tearful goodbye to all of them. Jintan stopped being a hikikomori for good and started attending school regularly, and it's implied that he and Anaru will end up together as a couple eventually. It is also implied that Tsuruko and Yukiatsu are dating. Meanwhile, Poppo also has gone back to school (although he did not quit working at the construction site)]].
