To Forgive, is to Forget...


The self-proclaimed Super Peace Busters, a group of six childhood friends, drift apart after the death of Meiko “Menma” Honma. Ten years later and everyone is still coping with their grief over the loss. Jinta Yadomi, the leader of the group, has now become a recluse, a shadow of his former energetic self.


But one summer day the ghost of Menma returns, aware of her passing and needing Jinta’s aid in helping her fulfill her wish so she can cross over.


In order to do that though the members of the Super Peace Busters need to reunite and confront the ghosts of their past if they wish to set Menma free. 


  • Jinta (Jintan) Yadomi

    Jintan has become an angry withdrawn teenager due to the tragic loss of his friend Menma when he was young. When he sees her ghost one summer he believes it to be a manifestation of his internal stress and trauma.
