5 Centimeters Per Second/YMMV
Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
- Epileptic Trees: Due to the nature of the ending, this movie invites Epileptic Trees with regards to the future of its characters. At this point it becomes notable that, contrary to his reputation, Makoto Shinkai has never actually made a movie with a genuine Downer Ending. Voices of a Distant Star and The Place Promised in Our Early Days both worked out in the end--but then, neither of those movies were set in the 'real' world.
- Needs More Love: A larger fandom might cathartise some of the feelings that this movie invokes in people.
