  • Some of the most beautiful animation out there.
    There are two things that make this film special. 1. Absolutely beautiful art direction, animation, colorization, just the setting comes to life and draws the viewer in. and 2. A quietly compelling set of stories that are so easy to empathize with. I am particularly drawn to the second story, as I could identify so fully with the lead's voice. This is a must have for fans of drama and romance, who ...

  • 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. ...

    Heart wrenching and beautiful
    Grab some tissues, grab some coco, and grab a bundle up in your biggest blanket. This is the perfect anime for a cold autumn day. You may or may not cry, but men you can't fight it. Just let it happen. This anime is powerful and you can't appreciate it without letting your emotions go.

    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 ...
