While my friend were still in Singapore and I was doing my part downloading the anime. I was going to take some time checking out my anime lists that I haven't watched yet stored in my hard disk drive. I decided to pick and watched “5 Centimeters Per Second - a chain of short stories about their distance". The anime was releases this year 2007, a feature film by Makoto Shinkai. The anime contains three chapters: Oukashou (桜花抄), Cosmonaut (コスモナウト), and Byousoku 5 Centimeter.
A tale of two people, Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari, who were close friends but gradually grow farther and farther apart as time moves on. They become separated because of their families yet continue to exchange contact in the form of letters. Yet as time continues to trudge on, their contact with one another begins to cease. Years pass and the rift between them grow ever larger. However, Takaki remembers the times they shared together, but as life continues to unfold for him, he wonders if he would be given the chance to meet Akari again. (from ANN)
I was so sad (nearly tears drop) about the ending because the two were not able to love at each other. As Akari were soon getting too married and Takaki is still looking for an answer and waiting for her. T_T I am really moved by this story to tell you the truth about the love distances. I really did somewhat experience a little about the love distance before, when I was still at primary until secondary. Well, thanks to these anime bringing back my childhood memories about someone I ever love from long distance…..
