Synopsis:

Although today Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari live far apart due to a family move shortly after elementary school, they were once two shy young students brought together by their shared differences from their peers. It is because of this that the two built a bond of closeness between them that still survives through their continued correspondence, even over such a distance. Secretly they both fear the loss of this bond over time, and for this reason they arrange a meeting between just the two of them. The journeys both of them take in their minds and in their lives create an atmosphere of intense emotional upheaval, but also a sense of peace. It is a twist of fate and a series of decisions that put the two in place to carry what they choose of their pasts into the future they will create for themselves.

Legend tells of a winged beauty who was so feared that she was confined to a palace, never to leave its gates alive. She lived a life of solitude until one day love entered her life; but as cruel fate would have it, the more the young woman loved, the closer she came to her death. For young Misuzu, researching the tragic tale of the winged one was only the beginning of her summer’s journey; a journey that would be filled with the discovery of love, the pain of loss, and the exploration of the human heart.

Both of these contain plenty of romance and they both tell a story about love that cannot be fulfilled.  Both are very touching and heart-wrenching and I think if you like one you would most certainly like the other

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.

when i compare Blue Drop with 5 Centimeters per Second the only things that come to my mind is the doomed relationship aspect, like an impossible love and the overwhelming drama, melancholic aspect of this two animes (which are turning into tragedies in the end). In other aspects this shows are pretty different, while Blue Drop focuses on a girl love relationship and has sci-fi aspect is pretty predominant, 5 Centimeters per Second focuses on a normal male to female love relationship. Still if you liked one of this two animes then im sure you will enjoy the other one as well.

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.

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.... ^_^
