  • nice little love story about distance
    this anime got me, it really did I thought it was gonna be a cheesy one and it might be at times, but seriously its so good and deep with its meaning. It being short just made me want to see more. I wanted an ending or at least more too it, but hey its a good ol cliffhanger haha.

    What did I just watch?
    Look, I get that it's suppose to be a 1 episode that explains some sad story about two lovers being so far apart. But I honestly had a hard time understanding. I don't see why 900+ people think this show is worth 4.5 stars?

    This show mashed together a 2 hour movie in 25 minutes. It felt rushed even.

    For some reason a middle schooler piloting a giant robot seems very unrealistic too.

    This ...

  • What I can tell from this
    This short film has fallen into a very short list of TV shows/movies that have made me cry. The film brings to light a very hurtful topic: distance in relationships. The shear fact that the two characters, Mikako and Noboru, are growing ever farther apart in distance, but closer in their love for each other, helps drive this point home, in my own opinion. Noboru has said that once Mikako arrives ...

  • Beautifully sad, and thoughtful.
    Wow, this was so beautiful. Take out the mecca, that doesn't matter. What is left is a truly touching story about young love. I thought it was truly beautiful.

    Like others have said, don't think of this as a mech movie, think of it as a long distance relationship of extreme proportions.

    Oh what a happy movie. I wished for a bit more hopeful resolution at the end, but they leave it up to your ...

  • Ok. A bit slow at times.
    It was alright. It was slow at times even though it was a only 30 minutes. The pacing was the thing that I really did not like about this. Felt they jumped around too far, too many times and I did not feel that I was made to really care for the characters.

    Beautiful Sci-fic-Romance story
    I am honestly new to Makoto's animated movies and this is my first anime movie of him ive ever watched. This anime made me cry at the end and haves such an amazing story in 24 minutes. Kimi no na wa brought me here, so this is why I started wayching makoto's movies. I really enjoyed this one.

  • Very heart wrenching
    I really felt for the characters, you know. Personally, it meant a lot to me. I text this very, special friend across the texting apps as well as the games. It isn't the same as being face to face with a loved one. The storyline for the anime isn't really unique but it is very inspiring. People can have a relationship and thrive even in long distances and still care about each other after a long ...

  • This is Tragedy at It's Finist
    A couple nights ago I was listening to a podcast that my brother had been invited to be on about anime. On it he mentioned this short as something he had seen during the week. My brother is an anime fan of a very different sort. He loves feature and short films as opposed to series. Upon hearing that it was available on CR I decided to give it a watch as soon as I could. After going through ...

    Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwzers.
    Mother of ballsack this anime was so bad I would have rather made myself puke for 25 minutes then watch that. Scenery wasn't bad, drawing was okay but the girl reminded me of a chicken. Had this been about chickens flying to space and leaving their soulmate behind to rot on earth and die, slowly I may add, waiting 8 years on a single message. Why did he not just move on and got some other tail. ...

    wonderful concept. some small nitpicks
    The concept here is very original and although maybe a crash-course on Einstein's laws of relativity might help you understand what's happening, if you get it then it's kind of heartbreaking.

    The landscape art is beyond stellar, and although the character design is lacking, this was made in 2002 by one guy on a laptop... so give him some credit!

    my biggest problem is a problem i have with ...
