  • Most effective non-addictive seditive you don't have to inject or eat.
    I see a lot of people give this glowing reviews. I watched this as well, and lets just say my opinion is... different.

    I don't watch this for the story. I don't watch this for the art. I definitely don't watch it for the dialogue or because of how close it is to the manga.

    This movie knocks me out cold. And that's a really good thing, as I'm have serious problems with insomnia. Yet, I ...

  • Alright, but Could be better
    If you've read the book, you know what i mean. First of all, some parts of the story were altered which i didn't really enjoy- i think that the movie could have benefitted from including those parts, because that's what makes it great. I heard a lot of people saying that this was a fantastic movie, but it's honestly not one of my favorites. However, what's really great about this anime is how down ...

    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 ...

    Love, it's powerful and confusing
    This was only an hour long so I gave it a shot. Some people were saying how sad it was and the amount of feels you get from it.

    Yes, I did get them somewhere in the beginning area. But after that, nothing, the animation is well done and thought out. But overall, it didn't capture my interest like I thought it would have.

    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.

    An Exceptional Masterpiece
    "The speed cherry blossom petals fall is five centimeters per second."

    -Akari Shinohara

    5 Centimeters per Second is the heartbreaking story between the couple, Takaki and Akari. Told in the fashion of three separate acts, we explore the themes of letting go of the past and growing up. What makes the movie stand out is that it perfectly executes the interactions between the characters ...

    Beautiful Artwork + Love Stories
    This anime exceeded my expectations. I expected a cheesy romance show with weird characters, but in return, I got to see one of the best art works. This anime has showed me that it is okay to be in love.
    Story 1- This story made me cry. It is about a boy meeting an old friend of his. He gets on a train to go meet his friend (who he kept in touch with by sending letters to her) but his train gets ...

  • One of the most Praiseworthy Animes I've Seen to Date
    5 Centimeters per Second is perhaps one of the best examples of romance in an anime movie to date.

    The story is split into three parts, and each are told in an elegant and deep fashion, without ever seeming contrived or rushed. Each of these stories contains extremely relatable characters, more so than many other animes that I've seen. The characters truly feel like real people, to the point ...

    Ode to Romance that could have been
    The animation is beautifully done, as many have said. I think the story is highly personal and subtle. Some people are going to relate to it more than others and that will greatly effect how they will rate it. I guess I would be most like Akari and not looking to the past so I didn't enjoy this story as much as most of the viewers.

    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.
