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.

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.

These are both slow-paced, romantic, short movies without that much of a plot. Despite that, they still manage to keep your attention all the way. Even though 5 cm has a lot better animation, the colours used are similiar. If you like one, you should try the other.

Galadriel

both Byousoku 5 Centimeter and Saikano have the same sad, tragic, melancholic mood, both of them feature a impossible love relationship between main protagonists (in Saikano the love relationship is impossible because of a war that occures while in Byousoku 5 Centimeters the love is impossible because of the distance between the main protagonists). If you enjoyed the sadness, misery and melancholy in one of this show then be sure to check the other one as well.
