    this movie made me cry like a baby
    This movie clearly shows the impact that first love has. You never really get over it...
    i actually liked the ending for this movie.i think the train is a symbol for the distance between them. it parted them in their teenage and now that they've grown up. its so sad though. but in the end, they couldnt even see each other. the train blocked their view of each other.all in all the ending was ...

    5 Centimeters Per Second
    5 Centimeters Per Second was the kind of small drama I would watch everyday. The animation was very beautiful and flawless. It seemed so real. The music was wonderful and fit very well into the whole drama. I like the character in the second episode(I forgot her name) she was very innocent and i felt sorry for her.
    I guess the only thing that i wasn't so fond of, was how the two of them ...

    Somewhat disjointed.
    When the ending montage started in, I was a little confused. All I could think was, that's it it?! But as I watched the montage, I realized that the song and the montage told the rest of the story & filled in the gaps. Takaki & Akari grew apart with time but while Akari moved on with her life, Takaki never did. It's really sad watching it and the realization that Takaki comes to that leds to ...

    A Masterpiece that goes beyond my expectations.
    This was one of the most romantic, yet saddest movie I have watched during this event and month.

    It starts out all childish and pure, and still yet pure as we move along their lives.
    The first person narrative connects really well, and we can truly see Tono's pain throughout.

    The stories were short, but they had such an impact. It felt like I was being hit by a baseball ...

    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.

    Amazing, breath taker
    Had to watch this multiple times and as a fellow artist superb work. I am ecstatic for the detail. One of my most favorite artists and with such a solid story line which really is memorizing. I would like to know what they used for the animation for the anime. I will be looking for future pieces by this artist.

    Must watch this if you enjoy true love stories. Gives hope to the world if love as ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...
