Plot

A tale of two people, Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari, who were close friends but gradually grow farther and farther apart as time moves on. They become separated because of their families yet continue to exchange contact in the form of letters. Yet as time continues to trudge on, their contact with one another begins to cease. Years pass and the rift between them grows ever larger. However, Takaki remembers the times they have shared together, but as life continues to unfold for him, he wonders if he would be given the chance to meet Akari again as the tale embarks on Takaki's realization of the world and people around him.
Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari are close friends who, upon graduation from elementary school, are parted because of family movement. Their deep feelings for each other keep them in contact, but they worry they may not meet again. Then, one day, Takaki decides to visit Akari.........This is a movie in three parts that follows the thoughts and relationship of 2 young people as they meet and part, both from their point of view and from people around them.

This is a really moving story.Makoto Shinkai did an amazing job with this anime.Although it's really short,it managed to top other anime(S) on my list with just a few mere episodes.The graphic was brilliant and the way the story was told is simply breathtaking.This show is simply genius.It was really realistic till the end.I don't think I should spoil the end for others since I bet that most people haven't watch this yet.Go watch it..you'll be looking at life and love with a different point of view.This story mainly shows the process of moving on, letting go of the past to make yourself grow.

My friend recommended it to me and I watched it, it's a beautiful anime, but quite sad at the same time.
It really brings out a lot of emotions and make you feel like you are looking at it as if you are reading the letters they write themselves.
