  • Great, but never watching again
    beautiful animation and nice writing combine to hit you in the feels like a freight train. If you're not depressed at the end of it, you might not have a soul.
    My personal policy is that if tears are shed, its never watched again. This makes the cut.

  • Storytelling At It's Finest
    In a world of anime that has lots of outlandish adventure and fantasy (one of the reasons I absolutely love anime), to see something like this is an excellent breath of fresh air. This is one of the occasional animated features that shows that this art form is an excellent medium of story telling.

    It's beautiful, and its realistic. It's a heartbreaking story we know very well. We've all been ...

  • No happy ending to this slice of life / romance
    Sometimes it is nice to watch a story where the guy doesn't really get the girl.

    Unfortunately the story skipped around a bit, it wasn't clear who all the characters were, the narration seemed a bit much at times, and we watched the dub which had somewhat lackluster voice actors with a lot of deadpan delivery.

    However, the art, especially the backgrounds, was gorgeous. The music was also ...

  • A Heartbreaking Tale
    I loved seeing this the first time round and now that I'm watching it again with my significant other, its much more meaningful. It's a beautiful tale that will leave you teary eyed and hopeful. A definite classic that deserves much more recognition.

    This anime was extremely relative, yet heartbreaking. I enjoyed it because it held true to what real love can feel like and turn into. If you're looking for a romance with a happy ending you won't want to watch this one.
    I found part two extremely hard to watch because I have experienced this same situation one too many times.
    Overall, it's very good but also very heartbreaking.

  • First Anime I felt the need to review
    So, this is my first ever review, and I'm going to keep it short. This is, as the title says, the first anime I've seen that I've felt the need to review. This is also the first anime that's made me cry. It's amazing, and really touching. I'm not sure what else to say, since so many have already said it better than me.

    I`m not huge on romance but this was fantastic.
    First let`s talk about the art, it was very well done. The background, the characters and the scenery felt like it came from a painting. E.g. the start of episode two, you can see the scenery I literally paused it and looked at it. Very well drawn, and over all amazing. Let's not forget the animation, god the animation.. it was too good.The dialogue and script were also fantastic, it gave you a ...

  • Trully a Masterpiece
    This moive has some of the most crazy heart jerking moments in it. The art is beautiful, and characters are relatable. All though this is a movie it does a great job at capturing the life of the main character and the way his life pans out. 10/10. Would recommend to everyone who enjoys great movies

    love love love ♥ ♥ ♥
    This is such a beautiful story about the hardships of a long distant relationship and an one sided love. It made me remember a lot of my personal experiences. This movie is so touching and heartfelt. The ending - debatable - has a nice and realistic touch. I found myself shaking and thinking about my past relationship. I love this movie even if I teared a bit...

    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 ...
