Each of these series have a strong emphasis how sad life can be as you progress through it, in all aspects. 5 CM/S is a lot more melancholic and less comedic than H&C, but each series definitely have that melancholy centered strongly around love and growing up there.

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

I love love stories :) Not simple romantic stuff, but those stories, which leave creeps after viewing.

The both movies left that great feeling, so after watching you could say "Oh! That was a really cool stuff!!"

Well, if you love love stories as do I, and you liked one of these movies, you know what to do with the other one ;)

Both Kimi no Iru Machi and 5 Centimeters per Second are love stories. The relationships they portray develop and end quite differently, but both have surprisingly complex and emotional stories for taking place in such a short amount of time. Both have pretty scenery, although it's hard to beat 5 Centimeters in that category.
