Default Byousoku 5 Centimeter



Genre:- Love-romance, Slice-of-life
Descriptions:-
Quote:
A movie consisting of three parts, basically telling the story of two people, Tohno Takaki and Shinohara Akari, who were close friends but gradually grow farther and farther apart as time moves on. Takaki and Akari become separated because of their families yet continue to exchange contact in the form of eMails. 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.

Part 1 - The Chosen Cherry Blossoms (26 min): Because of family movement, Shinohara Akari had leave Tokyo upon graduation from elementary school. The deep feelings between Takaki and Akari for each other keep them in contact, but they worry they may not meet again. Then, one day, Takaki learns that his familiy will move from Tokyo to an island in the far south of Japan, so he decides to use this last opportunity visit Akari by train...

Part 2 - Cosmonaut (21 min): Years have passed, and Takaki still writes eMails aimed at Akari, only to never send them to her. Meanwhile Sumita Kanae, his classmate, has special feelings for Takaki, but she does not have the courage to express her love to him...

Part 3 - 5 Centimeters per Second (16 min, more of a music clip than anime): Takaki is working as computer programmer now, occasionally remembering his former life - and love. And then, at a railroad crossing he suddenly passes by a woman who looks familiar to him...

To be honest I don't feel anything touching in the story, just typical love story, but amazing artwork indeed.

Agreed here. This one is just a little too melancholy.

Wow, I just watched half of part two and all of part three at my friend's house today, come home, check MMOG, and this was bump'd by pure coincidence.

The artwork is very nice, the animation is of my liking; a lot.
Since I basically just watched the second half, I didn't understand it as much. Still, what I did see was a very nice touch.

Still an above average anime movie, nevertheless.

well, it's better than making a new thread and it getting closed since this one existed already. and OP's got all the necessary in the 1st post..so why not??

btw, the promised place in our early days is better plot wise, but 5cm/s still pwns with the artwork. *plans to get voices from a distant star*

Don't be disappointed when I say it's a different guy. For Byousoku, I assume you meant Makoto Shinkai, Freya.

I don't know the author of The Girl who leapt through time. I'm sure it's not Makoto Shinkai. The Girl who leapt through time is also called Makoto, coincidence.

Nevertheless, both were interesting. Byousoku tends to be more narrative, of course. His movies are all like that

the show is good dont listen to the critics XD
watch it and tell us your viewer ratings ;D

I still prefer kumo no mukou, yakusoku no basho over Byousoku 5 cm
despite being an older title, the story fares better than the show ^__^

The actual director for Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo is Mamoru Hosoda. If you are looking for progressive storyline such as Place Promised in Our Early Days, you've come to the wrong place. The time span set between each of the three parts of the movie is quite far apart and it's packed with sad narratives. If you ask me, Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo was just as good as 5cm. Their arts were simple and effective compared to Shinkai's high budget production cost.
