Both anime are directed by Makoto Shinkai, have same similar art and give same feeling while watching one. If you liked one you will love other one too.

Both are movies just to start but other than this both are slow paced stories and the art style is pretty similar. The only main difference is that Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo is much more about the fantasy and 5cm per second about the romance. But each explores the romance between the characters, this is clearer in 5cm per second but even so Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo  shows emotional development between most of the main characters. If you liked one you should like the other.

Satoshi and Arumi have been friends since early childhood, but now Arumi's family is moving to Hokkaido, deeply upsetting her long-time friend. However, when Arumi's grandfather accidentally breaks the pelican statue atop his restaurant, the duo find their world turned upside down and not quite as they left it. From a fairy tale kingdom, to kung fu China, to the prehistoric age and everything in between, Arumi and Satoshi can't quite seem to figure out where they are, or better yet, how they can manage to get home to their own Abenobashi Shoutengai!

Both Abenobashi and 5 CM are about a boy and a girl who love one another very much, but the fact that their families are moving might tear them apart. Both can warm the heart but just for your information, Abenobashi is a little less serious and a little more crazy.

Boys Be

Boys Be

There is nothing more sad and pleasant than love in its various forms, and a group of high school students will discover them in this melancholy series. The focus is on Kanzaki Kyoichi, an artist and a dreamer at heart, and Nitta Chiharu, a track star and a childhood friend of Kyoichi's. From spring to summer to fall to winter, love will grow and fade, and grow again

I have a feeling that those who liked 5cm will also like Boys Be (and vice versa), since both left me with almost the same feeling after watching them.

Grave of the Fireflies and 5 Centimeter both have a heavy mood, which gives them a lot of emotional value.

Both Hoshizora Kiseki and Byousoku 5 Centimeter have the same flow and a rather slow-paced, laid back story with a rather heavy atmosphere.
