    top notch.. Would rate higher if I could
    WOuld rate it higher if I could. This movie excels in the quality of the animation, as well as the plot it presents. The story is not the typical **everything's great/everyone's happy** and I for one liked that about it. Having said that, it leaves you wanting more, it's that good. I highly recommend it

    5 Centimeters per Second is Simply Breathtaking,
    5 Centimeters per second shows us what love is about in one of the most beautiful ways I have ever seen.

    The music truly set the tone and as well as the pacing of the story, and along with it's beautiful animation and storytelling, captures the feelings of love sprouting from a young Takaki to the nostalgic love of the adult Takaki.

    It also captures a sense of realism that most anime don't ...

    Beautiful story, Beautiful art work, Beautiful!
    The story itself is wonderful and heart wrenching to the point you'll be crying the whole time. The story revolves around one boy, his relationships and the events that lead to adulthood. The story is told masterfully in three chapters that take you from the highest high ... right back down to Earth. It's certainly one movie that narrative lover will definitely enjoy!

    Nothing to see here.
    What we have here is a story everyone has gone through. Dude meets a chick. Dude falls in love. They are separated. And the what-ifs that occur because of that. I'm only writing this review so that I can remember two things
    A) I've already watched this
    B) It had nothing remember-able occur, hence why I forgot I watched it.

    Five Minutes to Melt Your Heart, Five Seconds to Break It
    From the first taps of the piano keys, and the painstakingly lovely animation that it accompanies, this story unfolds in a beautiful way - almost like a cherry blossom fluttering from tree to ground. Watch it subbed or dubbed, it makes no real difference. It is an experience to treasure, just as richly as the moments are cherished by those for whom this story takes place.

    read the book!!!!!!!!
    if you want a story that will make your heart warm and broken at the same time, then read this book. This movie/show is a amazing manga. its about a boy and girl who fall in love......... but the story doesn't go the way you would think. I actually cried, and i have never cried in any book. this is one of the most heart warming and heart wrenching book/show ever!

    One of those screaming/whispering-profanity-at-midnight-anime
    I watched this right after finishing Inu X Boku, which left emotional residue going into this one. I loved the metaphors, and how it forced you to relive events in your life. This would still have been good with bad animation, but it had the some of prettiest animation I have seen. The world felt huge and sparsely populated, which is great when addressing the concept of love. Best watched all at ...

    Guaranteed to make you cry.
    From ComixWave Films and master animator Makoto Shinkai comes one of the most touching animated films ever made. It isn't merely the breathtaking visuals and animation that make this film shine. 5 Centimeters Per Second is a story that many of us can relate to. We all have many regrets in our lives as well as the desire to go back and change our decisions. In particular, our love lives are what is ...

  • 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 ...
