  • 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.

    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 ...

  • 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. ...

    ....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 ...

  • 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 ...

    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, ...

    Great animation assists a sad, but good, story
    This anime was one of those whose name I've heard of or come across every now and then, but I never really knew what it was about or really much anything about it. After finishing an episode of Kamigami no Asobi, I saw this in the "Other Romance Shows You May Like" section, and decided, what the heck, I'll give it a shot.

    The 60-minute movie centers around a guy, Takaki Tono, and two girls, ...

    Makoto Shinkai Is Amazing!
    The animation aside, which is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking, the stories highlighted in 5 Centimeters Per Second are all very touching and very sad. A story about a young love that just couldn't be. Whether it was unsure feelings, long distance, or simply growing and forgetting the two central characters were destined no to be together.

    Normally this is the type of story that I would ...

    Absolutely worth watching
    If this film is any indication, I should spend the next several days watching everything this man as directed. Emotionally satisfying, beautifully animated, and serene without being slow, this movie should be viewed by anyone who wants to see what can be done with the medium.

    Ode to Romance that could have been
    The animation is beautifully done, as many have said. I think the story is highly personal and subtle. Some people are going to relate to it more than others and that will greatly effect how they will rate it. I guess I would be most like Akari and not looking to the past so I didn't enjoy this story as much as most of the viewers.
