  • My god this is beautiful
    The animation of this is extremely exceptional. I would say it is one of my personal favorites for that. As for the story, it doesn't get left behind. While this isn't an over the top drama or romance, it still manages to get very strong emotional responses from the characters with out making anything seem out of place. Personally, I enjoyed growing with the character and feeling the low and high ...

    Hauntingly Beautiful, and Beautifully Haunting
    5 Centimeters per Second is an astonishingly beautiful movie. The art is breathtaking (hence it's such a shame that Crunchyroll doesn't have an HD option for it), the music is moving, the acting is perfect, the characters are amazingly deep despite the movie's short length, and the story... Oh man, the story something else. The best word I can find to describe the story of this movie is ...

    So I guess I'm the only person ever who wasn't moved by this...
    I watched this because I was told it would give me feels and I would cry. I'm a pretty easy crier and cry a lot when animes give me the right feelings. I watched all of this and....nothing. I couldn't really get into it. It was like a giant ball of depressing and I was just sitting there like "Okay, when's he gonna move on with his life?" My favorite part was just the ending where it quickly ...

    I loved this soooooo much.
    A short bittersweet film about first love and letting go. I could relate so much to it, that I cried...It captures your attention by the amazing story and artwork. The story is in three chapters, all unique and heartbreaking. One in the past, another one is a little closer to the present but is still the past, and the present.

    It's amazing. It's amazing. It's amazing. I can't say anything else ...

    The Best Anime Ever!
    This made me cry , The regretful Takaki should just bulk up and so at least something even if he fails at least i wouldnt feel that bad.The scene where they got their first kiss was breathtaking. I will remember this anime for the rest of my lives

    One of the best romance/slice of life animes I have ever seen
    After watching this I was so amazed by many aspects this short movie presented such as the art, romantic emotion, relatable characters, soundtrack and realism.
    First the Art. The art was very well drawn in my eyes as every background was like a fresh painting. The romantic emotion was also done beautifully as you can feel every amount of happiness and heartbreak the characters feel. The ...

  • I really wanted to like this more, if only it had more of a story.
    If all you want is something to pull at your strings, then this is it, but ultimately it just left a feeling of emptiness without actually accomplishing anything. Not unlike Voices of a Distant Star which in many ways is a similar movie that told more of a story.

    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.

    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 ...

    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..
