Both involves interaction of a male lead with 2 or 3 girls.... picturization is also much similar.... moreover animation along with the slow moving pace of story is yet another common thing shared between them..... anyhow both movies are so beautiful to watch...... if you like one please try other, you will surely like it.... ^_^
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.
Long ago, young Meiko Honma tragically died and her tight-knit group of friends, shaken by the event, drifted apart. Now, ten years later, Meiko has re-appeared as a ghost that only Jinta, the former leader of the gang and an avid shut-in, can see. All she desires is for Jinta to fulfill her final wish so that she can move on to the afterlife, but with no memory of what it was, it’s up to the teenager to gather his former friends and discover what will allow his beloved friend to rest in peace. With so many feelings left unsaid, can this group work out their strife and help the ghost of the girl they once adored?
5 Centimeters per Second and anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day both deal with love, loss, solitude, and personal growth. The type of solitude the anime portray is rather unique in the sense that it's the kind where being with others and people you know well only seems to add to the isolation. anohana deals with spiritual elements that don't appear in 5 Centimeters per Second, and both have beautiful art style and animation. Both are deeply emotional stories that are sure to stay with you for a long time. I can highly recommend both series and feel that those who enjoyed one story will find much to like in the other.
