    A Masterpiece that goes beyond my expectations.
    This was one of the most romantic, yet saddest movie I have watched during this event and month.

    It starts out all childish and pure, and still yet pure as we move along their lives.
    The first person narrative connects really well, and we can truly see Tono's pain throughout.

    The stories were short, but they had such an impact. It felt like I was being hit by a baseball ...

    “You’re Waiting For a Train…” (Insight – 5 Centimeters Per Second)
    (NOTE: I DO delve into the Storyline quite a bit, so if you don't want to spoil ANYTHING, please read up to my "Recommended for" listing. Otherwise, read at your own risk.)

    I love anime. I watch it every moment that my life allows me. However, there are times in which I do worry about the state of the Industry…where it’s going and, if in about five or ten years, will it ...

    One of the best romance/slice of life animes I have ever seen
    After watching this I was so amazed by many aspects this short movie presented such as the art, romantic emotion, relatable characters, soundtrack and realism.
    First the Art. The art was very well drawn in my eyes as every background was like a fresh painting. The romantic emotion was also done beautifully as you can feel every amount of happiness and heartbreak the characters feel. The ...

    Many tears were shed
    I'm trying to make a habit of only reviewing anime that I can't forget. This is one of those anime. You mention the name and I immediately relive the emotions felt while watching it. This one hour tale is covered in three chapters. Takaki, a fragile young man lives his childhood years with his also fragile friend, Akari Shinohara. Because of their similar interests and weaknesses, they grow very ...

    Breathtaking scenery. Amazing story.
    I loved every second of this movie. i'd highly recommend this to anyone. heck, i'd watch it for the artwork alone. it's a true work of art and i'm definately going to be watching it again at some point. the sound effects are another thing that in my opinion was just amazing. everything fit the story aswell.

    Five Minutes to Melt Your Heart, Five Seconds to Break It
    From the first taps of the piano keys, and the painstakingly lovely animation that it accompanies, this story unfolds in a beautiful way - almost like a cherry blossom fluttering from tree to ground. Watch it subbed or dubbed, it makes no real difference. It is an experience to treasure, just as richly as the moments are cherished by those for whom this story takes place.

    Guaranteed to make you cry.
    From ComixWave Films and master animator Makoto Shinkai comes one of the most touching animated films ever made. It isn't merely the breathtaking visuals and animation that make this film shine. 5 Centimeters Per Second is a story that many of us can relate to. We all have many regrets in our lives as well as the desire to go back and change our decisions. In particular, our love lives are what is ...

    5 Centimeters Per Second
    5 Centimeters Per Second was the kind of small drama I would watch everyday. The animation was very beautiful and flawless. It seemed so real. The music was wonderful and fit very well into the whole drama. I like the character in the second episode(I forgot her name) she was very innocent and i felt sorry for her.
    I guess the only thing that i wasn't so fond of, was how the two of them ...

    this movie broke my heart
    the animation in this film is so amazing and the voice acting is to. i got sucked into it within the first 5 minutes of watching this. although some people may not like it because it is a bit slow for some people but if you love romances than this is a must. 5 centimeters per second is definitely one of my favorites.

    Absolutely worth watching
    If this film is any indication, I should spend the next several days watching everything this man as directed. Emotionally satisfying, beautifully animated, and serene without being slow, this movie should be viewed by anyone who wants to see what can be done with the medium.
