    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 ...

    So I guess I'm the only person ever who wasn't moved by this...
    I watched this because I was told it would give me feels and I would cry. I'm a pretty easy crier and cry a lot when animes give me the right feelings. I watched all of this and....nothing. I couldn't really get into it. It was like a giant ball of depressing and I was just sitting there like "Okay, when's he gonna move on with his life?" My favorite part was just the ending where it quickly ...

  • My god this is beautiful
    The animation of this is extremely exceptional. I would say it is one of my personal favorites for that. As for the story, it doesn't get left behind. While this isn't an over the top drama or romance, it still manages to get very strong emotional responses from the characters with out making anything seem out of place. Personally, I enjoyed growing with the character and feeling the low and high ...

  • 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.

  • 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 ...
