A bit depressing really.....It annoys me that Takaki reaches the epiphemy of his dreams to become an Astronaut but utterly fails to do so. What I don't understand is why, is Makoto Shinkai a realist? I prefer Romanticism in Anime, wasn't expecting this. Overall I'd have to rate it a....8/10, decent plot & portrayal of the new generation.

I think it was really something, the 1st part shows how in love both of them were, but in the 3rd story, she only recalls the existance of him after seeing the old letter. Its an irony to see Tono still dwadling around and throw away his job for this depression of love -.-

I rate this a 9.5/10, which is very, very high praise from me, for exquisite artwork, wonderful music, good characters, and a really nice, bittersweet story. I enjoyed every minute of this experience. Many thanks to Shinkai Makoto-san for this masterpiece.

there are ltos of things that are skipped over in this film if i recalled. i havent seen this in a while as i watch it when it came out. But there are parts that are subconsiously implied which fills in why this fim is so great. Especially the "music video" or part 3 of the movie. you can see so much of what happen during the time laspe between their futures and part 2. Part 3 of the film is probably the most significant of the movie as it ties everything together and the message Shinkai is trying to pull. io agree its hard to see at some parts as it does move fast but slow it down it will be more clear i guess. As the film never explain some stuff taht happen in the novel. Though i personally love the ending. The thought of the using the train is so amazing. From part 1, u can tell that their relationship will never work. the train interupts and the girl gone. The girl is always ahead of the main. The main is always waiting in this distance relationship. Thats why he couldnt move on with another girl in part 2. Just as the end she turn around but she never wait for him, while he. However he does smile and turn aways as if he knows its time to move on.

A beautiful and moving masterpiece about true love that was never told . . . the only anime to make me cry . .the second being Itazura na Kiss. The music was beautiful and haunting, adding to a simple yet relateable storyline about love and longing animated in the most maginificent way I have ever seen. I am glad however, that Takaki learnt to move on from such deep pain of longing in the end, as did Akari. Thank you to Makoto Shinkai for reminding us about the good things in life that we can experience if we say what we feel in time.

I feel ashamed. Over 30 years old and still I'm on the verge of tears after watching this.

Shinkai Makoto seems to reach the perfect blend of dream and realism, telling a story we all must have experienced to some degree in our lives, just not this intense.

This is a masterpiece.

I had a completely different experience than most when I watched this. I mixed up the characters for the second episode and thought that the girl in #2 was the girl in #1. From that perspective the show blows me away!! But it's the wrong perspective I guess.

The third episode was totally unwelcome imo, from either perspective. Mostly because I didn't like the song. Still, if this show was two episodes; the first showing the boy's first true love, and the second showing the girl's first true love. That would be my masterpiece of the decade. As it stands it's too focused on the male character and lacks the breath of life that would come from simply making unrequited love the absolute focus.

I guess the point is that the third episode (which is my fav) really brings the male character full circle with the first episode. There is definitely a Beginning, Middle and End for the character. We see in the first episode, the promise made to see the Cherry Blossoms again, and the failed attempt at that at he end of the first episode. The Second part shows the male character from another perspective and how his life is impacted by his inability to let go of or deal with his feelings for his first love. The Third episode shows us the depth to which the male character has kind of fallen and at the end, when he meets his true love again at the train crossing where they made their promise in the first episode, with the cherry blossoms again in bloom, does he finally move on or ?
