    read the book!!!!!!!!
    if you want a story that will make your heart warm and broken at the same time, then read this book. This movie/show is a amazing manga. its about a boy and girl who fall in love......... but the story doesn't go the way you would think. I actually cried, and i have never cried in any book. this is one of the most heart warming and heart wrenching book/show ever!

    One of those screaming/whispering-profanity-at-midnight-anime
    I watched this right after finishing Inu X Boku, which left emotional residue going into this one. I loved the metaphors, and how it forced you to relive events in your life. This would still have been good with bad animation, but it had the some of prettiest animation I have seen. The world felt huge and sparsely populated, which is great when addressing the concept of love. Best watched all at ...

    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 ...

  • Wow. DAT ANIMATION!!!!!
    CoMix Wave Inc., IMO, is the best anime production studio out there in terms of beauty (even better than Bones, Production I. G., and KyoAni). The story (or stories), in comparison, lacks the "umff" that the animation has, but is one that most viewer can sympathize with.

    I'm only giving it a 4 instead of a 5 because the last story was kind of a killjoy ...

  • A must see for all anime fans
    This anime has great detail put into everything in it the visuals are amazing and the characters are very well made. The story itself was really good too, you feel connected to the characters as they face hardships and misfortune. I remember one part where they're on a hill looking into the distance and the sky was filled with so many colors as the sun was rising and I paused it at that point just ...

  • Nothing like it A truly moving story...
    An incredible movie with nothing like it.
    Watch it!
    I've never seen an anime with such stunning visuals and beautiful music. The plot is deep and moving too—when I think about how romance should be and how it often isn't... well, I think about this movie.

    Absolutely Spectacular.
    This is definitely one of my top 10 anime movies! I was brought to it after watching The Place Promised In Our Early Days directed by Makoto Shinkai.

    I really loved the picture of this film as well as the valuable lessons that were played out in it- it was very realistic. The way relationships begin with beauty and wonder but becomes distant after a while and causing you to fight to hold on ...

  • Well animated though a little sad
    I finally got a chance to watch this movie and found myself enjoying it.

    The movie itself is broken down into 3 stories, all of them surrounding the two main characters (Takaki and Akari).

    The first part dwells into their younger years, and the relationship that developed between them. In the second part, several years have passed and they are now in High School, leading separate lives. The ...

    So realistic. Worth watching.
    When I was done reading a fanfiction, the author at the end said that this movie was highly recommended and so, I downloaded it right away. At first, I dont get the story and was a bit bored so I stopped it, but I was really impressed by the artwork and curioused about how the story will go so I resumed watching it the day after. I was silent the whole movie especially during the second part of ...
