Aniplex of America has announced that its English dub of the anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day anime film will premiere at Anime Expo. The screening will take place at 6:30 p.m. PDT on July 2, 2017. ADR director Patrick Seitz and most of the main English dub cast — Griffin Burns (Jintan), Xanthe Huynh (Menma), Erica Lindbeck (Anaru), Erica Mendez (Tsuruko), and Kaiji Tang (Poppo) — will attend the event.
The 2011 anime followed several childhood friends who try to reconnect in high school, after drifting apart due to tragedy five years earlier. It inspired a manga, a 2013 film sequel, and a 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.
