There is not much I can say about "5 Centimeters per Second" other than I rather enjoyed it. Lasting about an hour and being comprised of three short stories I did not start this expecting alot but it surprised me. Before I go any further I should say that if you are looking for an adventure or something with amazing action sequences keep looking, this is far from that. In my opinion "5 Centimeters per Second" was emotion in colour, there were no conflicts just life, not tragic but sometimes a little sad. I felt for the characters and grew attached because I could relate to what they are going through having experiences like these in my own life. The animation was probobly the best I have seen so far (excluding Pixar's works of course) and the sound fit perfectly with what was happening to make for a very immersive story.... err stories. If you want to forget about life for awhile you no longer have to go see Billy Joel, just pop this in.
