  • Can we get an f in the chat?
    Very nice storytelling, animation, and characters. I braced myself for a torrent of tears, only to find out my tissue box served no purpose. The story does touch me, but not in a way that makes me absolutely heartbroken. This type of tragedy didn't exactly "connect" with me, but it might with you. It's totally worth the hype, so do yourself a favor and watch it right now!!

  • Avoid if you are expecting a romance anime
    I was recommended to this movie from a comment on a romance anime here on crunchyroll. I watched the entirety of this movie, and its ending left me disappointed.

    I couldn't find happiness or satisfaction anywhere in part 2 or 3 where part 1 had set my hopes up. This movie made me more frustrated than entertained. I know a lot of people here like the movie for its unique storytelling and harsh ...

    Not Available for my Location
    I was disappointed to see that I can't watch this movie in Canada. I was really excited cuz I heard good things but now gotta go find it on some random website. I'm not basing ths off of the movie itself, heard it was very good... just upset because it's not available for me to watch even though I pay for premium.

  • A Hard Dose of Reality
    There is much to be said about how 5 Centimeters per Second makes one feel. At the time I probably cried more tears than needed, but I do not regret watching it at that age. This movie isn't afraid to show the truth about long distance relationships that many audience members would like to not face. Sometimes things die slowly and that's okay.

  • I just feel empty now.
    The movie/episodes pulled at every single emotion and kept pulling until all that was left was the cold and sad realization that the ending brought about. The movie had some fairly heartwarming beginning and really made the viewer think that this show was going to be a nice and amazing Shoujo romance. The characters were full of emotions and felt very human which played to the sadness. ...

    poorly written drama
    It's endearing, and you get the sense the film will progress in some direction.

    It doesn't. Nothing happens. It's 3 distinct "episodes" where the creators decide to eschew any sort of act structure and create short stories almost entirely irrelevant to one another in a way that feels like they were written by different people. it's just a dumpster fire of a romance film that tries to be deep ...

    If you're looking for a compelling story and characters with which you can identify, look elsewhere.
    The three parts all feel very disjointed when put together. The tone is all over the place, and the absence of a strong overarching narrative leaves the story feeling empty. Things just sort of happen, and then it ends. While some of the situations and emotions expressed are certainly relatable, you're left so disconnected from the characters by the strange pacing and jarring swaps of pov, that in ...

  • Best direction ever!!
    Finally watched 5 centimeters per second. I somewhat understand the hype now. It's not in the story but the presentation. The art, the music, everything was in perfect sync. I loved how they delivered the emotions of the main character. I couldn't understand them all but I felt them anyway. I really want to know exactly what went down and how they fell apart. How something so beautiful could ...

  • Good if you are single
    It was good, but not as good as the hype for me. I think the problem is that I am in my mid-twenties and married, so I already experienced all these problems and long since accepted them. This movie would have probably hit me harder back when I was single and alone.

  • Enjoyed it more than any love story I've seen before
    This one may not have had me on edge, but it truly shows how deep emotions can go. A complete masterpiece with the plot and the characters are given a lot of emotional blows that would make most give up before they even start. Definitely a favorite for me
