One day, a ghost of Menma appeared and came to Jinta Yadomi, or Jintan, the leader. Since Jintan still has deep feeling and guilty feeling towards Menma, he decide to fulfil Menma-in-ghost-form wish. As Menma's wish, slowly, the distant relationship of this childhood friends somehow become close again. Anaru, Yukiatsu, Tsuruko and Poppo are another childhood friends on that group.
