The six friends are Jintan (Jinta Yadomi), Menma (Meiko Honma), Anaru (Naruko Anjo), Yukiatsu (Atsumu Matsuyuki), Tsuruko (Chihiro Tsurumi), and Poppo (Tetsudo Hisakawa). The six formed a group of friends called, "Super Peace Busters" when they were elementary school students. The leader of the group was Jintan. After the unfortunate, heart-breaking death of their beloved friend Menma, the group broke apart, and the personalities of everyone changed. Everyone drifted away from each other, and the once energetic, happy-go-lucky leader Jintan had become withdrawn and sad. It is in the group's high school days when Menma reappears, going to Jintan to ask for help. Through this, Jintan reconnects with his former friends and rediscovers the true, deep bond between them all.
