    Beautiful anime but unreal stories
    This is a simple life story in three chapters, about 21 minutes each. The first is two school friends who are separated, yet the boy travels by train many hours to meet the girl again. In the second chapter, the same boy at another school has a surfer girl with a crush on him but he never gave her special attention, and she cries herself to sleep over him. The last chapter has the same first two, ...

  • 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 ...

    ....What? Sadly Mistaken
    I usually enjoy romantic/dramatic anime and the like, and someone recommended me this one. I went into it with very high expectations, but I really don't see the lure of this. I had no attachment to the characters (I am writing this 30 seconds after finishing it and I already can't remember the names of anyone), the middle part just made me want to tear my hair out of sheer annoyance, and it seems ...

  • 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. ...

    anime gave me so many tears
    the anime is based around a girl and guy who went to school together and get separated. The whole anime gave me chills. The old style anime animation is great along with beautiful scenery. The plot is so real and you get a feel for the characters and the heartbreak they go through. It's been a long time since an anime has effected me like this, i cried so much its unbelievable. 10/10 its only ...

  • 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.

    It's good but it lacks a lot more details...
    I find the movie inspiring and it shows a real life situation. The animation is excellent, but I want more from the story. I think the ending lacks, it lacks something that i can't explain, maybe I'm just expecting for Takaki and Akari to be together. That will maybe make the story much more happier..

    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 ...

    My Shory review of this amazing anime film
    The art is amazing, the story is very relatable, and it shows how time, feelings, distance, space and relationships work/conflict with each other. The message is rather deep and it kinda depends on the watcher to fully grasp the symbolism behind the events, and if you want stories with resolution/denouement, this is not it. But it doesn't mean it's not good. Still it's amazing. Give it a shot.
