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.
Although plot may be different, there are many similarity between these two such as 'interaction of a male lead with 2 or more than 2 girls', 'animation', 'somewhat slow moving pace' etc., while '5 centimeter per second' is concentrated more on romance, 'bungaku shoujo memoire - second episode' has little bit dark romance in it.... anyhow both these animes are 'feel good' series.... if you like one please try other..... you will surely like it..... ^_^
The cheery Kobato Hanato is on a mission to heal people’s damaged hearts and gather the resulting “konpeito”; she must collect one hundred of these candy-shaped trophies in order for her deepest wish to be granted: to go to a certain place. Along the way, she’s accompanied by an ever-disgruntled, talking stuffed animal of a guardian named Ioryogi who scores her efforts, attempts to keep her on-track, and reminds her of the rules governing her task: she only has one year to fulfill her goal and she must not, under any circumstance, fall in love with someone whose heart she heals.
The most immediately obvious similarities between the two shows is the art styles , most likely due to a few key animators that they share. In addition, the lead heriones of Kobato and Bungaku Shoujo are both sources of ceaseless optimism that brighten up a room but are still a little ditzy. Finally, both shows have major characters with tragic pasts that they are forced to confront during the course of the plot. In short, both are a mix of comedic and emotionally raw moments.
