Voices of a Distant Star and 5 CM are two of a kind. Makoto Shinkai created both, and it's incredibly obvious due to the similar heart-wrenching love story, absolutely stunning animation and an overall bittersweet and melancholy feel. You don't walk away happy from either of these, but they are both beautiful gems that should be appreciated.
Voices of a Distant Star and 5 CM are from the same producers and as such the animation style is similar. The setting may be different but they have a similar genre and emotional appeal. Also there are common themes such as romance which involves a relationship separated by distance and time.
If you liked 5 CM you'd also like Hoshi no Koe because it's also a masterpiece from Makoto Shinkai. It has the same awesome animation and sound, and the same sad story which is full of loneliness.

If you liked 5 CM you'd also like Place Promised because it's also a masterpiece from Makoto Shinkai. It has the same awesome animation and sound, and the same sad story which is full of loneliness.
Both Place Promised In Our Early Days and 5CM have the wonderful light effects of Makoto Shinkai. Also the theme of these movies is the same. Both of them have a depressing feeling that characterize the whole movie.
The spectacular background animations in 5 CM and Beyond the Clouds will leave you speechless. The romance is just as good in both anime, but the ending in Beyond the Clouds is way better and is surprising.

5 CM and Clannad have a distinct feeling of romance, and take place in high school. They are slow-paced with beautiful scenery and intricate dialogues and monologues that keep the story going without giving too much to the viewer.
5 Centimeters per Second and Clannad are very different animes with very different feels, yet both set out to say something about love and relationships. Some of the similarities are their school-life setting and scenery and a chapter by chapter pacing. Their differences are that in Clannad comedy is a focal point in the show, there are 5 or more well developed characters and a more light-hearted feel. In 5 Centimeters per Second however, there is intentionally little or no character development, creating more universally understandable characters. The mood of 5 Cm is much more melancholy than Clannad, but over all both are highly recommended. If you liked one, I'm sure you will like the other.
Clannad and 5 cm share a strong sense of love, while having a lot of the sorrowful parts of it intact. Also, each of the series are slow paced and, (at least for a lot of 5 cm and all of Clannad) centered in high school. If you like the romance or pace in either of these, you'll likely enjoy the other.
