    5 cm/s in Sub [Good]
    I found it exciting. Most of the story wasn't connected in a way I could follow easily and more emotions were said than dialogue. I have to give the writers credit where it stands. I enjoyed the pace of the show, the Japanese verbiage. and the artwork. I don't like how open ended each short story was, it seemed unfinished. Sound effects get an A+
    If I could ask anything of the story it would be ...

  • I have no words except beautiful
    Animation is just gorgeous! On top of that a really heart wrenching story about two kids in love and the long distance between them. Though caution this is very depressing but not in a bad way, I love it. This is totally worth the watch, only 64 min and its better than angel beats (in my opinion) and that was one of my favorite animes. You can not say you've lived until you've watched this film. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Um......What!?......
    This was very nice. It's something to watch on a rainy day when you have nothing to do. The background was beautiful with cool imagery. It was kind of sad. Not a tear shed but still left an empty feeling inside. I only gave it 5 stars due to the fact it had some recognizable english voice actors from anime I love dearly. Like Blue Exorcist and Haibane Renmei, etc. I felt that it had no real ...

  • Great Story, Not so Great Ending
    The backgrounds were beautiful and the characters matched the background. Still the characters look similar for some reason. Anyways, the ending was kinda off. If they extended for at least 10 more minutes then they could have done a better job in making the ending more settling. Even though it's sad, the least they could have done was to make the ending clearer. Altogether this movie is great. ...

  • Good romantic anime for all
    This show is actually a movie that showcases a young couples love for each other. It is kinda slow but still a good solid romance. This show is well put together, the animation is great and it takes you on a nice little ride. Not really a multi-watch type of thing for me but still worth a watch.

  • Pleasantly Surprised
    Went in not expecting much other than some feels, and was very happy by the end of the film. I did have to look up some things, but that only made me want to watch again. I watched this dang film 3 times in one night. If you have a spare hour or three, watch this.

    Too high of expectations
    After reading all the rave reviews on this, I decided to give it a watch. I had been wanting to watch it for some time and finally got around to watching it today. Man, was I disappointed. Yes, the animation was quite stunning, in fact the landscapes were one of my favorite parts on watching this. The stories though, for some reason I felt like they lacked substance and were just there, yes I ...

  • I really wanted to like this more, if only it had more of a story.
    If all you want is something to pull at your strings, then this is it, but ultimately it just left a feeling of emptiness without actually accomplishing anything. Not unlike Voices of a Distant Star which in many ways is a similar movie that told more of a story.

    I loved this soooooo much.
    A short bittersweet film about first love and letting go. I could relate so much to it, that I cried...It captures your attention by the amazing story and artwork. The story is in three chapters, all unique and heartbreaking. One in the past, another one is a little closer to the present but is still the past, and the present.

    It's amazing. It's amazing. It's amazing. I can't say anything else ...
