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.

From a friendly Russian sushi bar to the violent color gangs, to even an urban legend in the form of a black motorcycle rider, each resident of Ikebukuro is unique and frightening. But the town is smaller than it seems at first, and these strange events appear to be connected.

High budget, quality animation is hard to come by, both of these are animated in a way that they create a beautiful environment for their storys to unfold in. If you were a fan of the animation in either of these titles, you should be sure to check out the other.

Both feature beautiful animation and feature a choice: Are you satisfied with your life asit is now? Each film has it's own take, and its own answer. In the Haruhi movie this quistion is approached directly, while in 5cm the connection is more abstract. Highly worth your time witchever you watch.

Both of these movies are slow paced and rely on a heavy mood and beatiful art rather than a complex story.

So if you enjoyed one of them because of these elements and if you are looking for more be sure to check the other one out.
