  • 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 ...

  • Touching love story!
    5 Centimeters per Second is a heartwarming story of timeless love. Besides the good animation and music, the main attraction of this masterpiece is its excellent storyline and realistic characters.

    The movie shows the happiness of finding love, the joy of being in love and being loved, the pain of separation, and the truth that there are things we can never get back and that we must move on. ...

  • Unbelievable animation, and nice story line.
    To keep this simple, 5 Centimeters Per Second was indeed, a very nice anime-movie to watch.

    The storyline: I really enjoyed the story, until the end. I can't say I enjoyed the final chapter at all, really. It feels incomplete to me; I feel as if Takaki should have gotten a better ending. Not just a smile and acceptance, since this was all about him. I'm happy (for the most part) for Akari, but ...

    5 centimeters per second will warm your heart, I'll make you look back on your own life
    Just finished watching it, and the story line touched me deeply, It's able to move you, and make you sight, and lightly tilt your head at the things this work of art let's you experience.
    I recommend it completely.

    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.

    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 ...
