I generally don't overanalyse the little details...for me, 5cm/s was more about what it meant.
Spoiler:


That was what this movie was about - before email and cellphone and MSN messenger, before AIM, before ICQ. I don't know where all my friends from elementary school are anymore - since I moved when I was 10. There are friends from later on (before electronic communication) whom I no longer keep in contact with - even though we tried writing letters. It just didn't work out and I think Shinkai perfectly captured this sense of distance - whether a romantic one or just friendship and acquaintances.

I love this movie.

Nothing wrong about discussing a good, well written story

Well, if you put it that way, I agree with you she was there and about the moving on part only...

Good stuff but I still wanted them to get together in the end

I agree, this movie could have been much better if they had ended up together in the end.

I know that Shinkai wanted to make a more simple and realistic movie, but the taste that the movie left me was bitter.

Somehow, I don't feel as if the movie would have as powerful an impact if the couple ended up together. I think the ending was quite appropriate, all things considered.

No, it definitely wouldn't have been but still...

As they say, when there's a will there's way. In this case, Takaki already had a starting point. Even if Akari moved, he can still track her down if he really wanted to.

Yay, now I have that DBZ image song, "Hikari no Will Power" playing in my head again... I blame you! J/K

Beginning

Actually, I got trolled via the Naruto, but I knew that going in due to comments etc. So the comments stated it was a nice slice of life story etc, mediocre to good. So, it was 10:30 and I was going to bed so I put this on my TV, something light before I went to bed... and I was confused, I re-watched it until midnight, I felt I was way off, thinking this might be the best thing I have ever seen. So, I sought out more accurate information (more when is the next episode) and ended up at AnimeSuki at approximately page 10 or so.

Following it from there I just found it interesting, the details, this Shinkai guy, how he thinks etc. I still have questions from this that I am trying to figure out. I am just posting the next part for those who have an interest in some of these details and questions etc.

Spoiler for details goes to state of mind:

I think someone already said this but, the movie's theme was all about distance set out like this:

Oukasho (Physical distance)
Cosmonaut (Emotional distance)
5cm (Time distance)

Wasn't really thinking about it until I read some other sites. So Shinkai would have had to split up the two in the last part just to keep the theme anyway. Even if people like me wanted them to get back together again.

No, Takaki will suddenly encounter Kanae in Tokyo by coincidence then another drama begins

@Xcomp That never occured to me but it does fit with what I've seen.

Takaki meeting up with Kanae randomly in Tokyo. That would be a great way to wrap it up imo.

Damn, you edited before I could re-type everything. I guess you figured things out too then

Well, ordered the limited edition with Play-Asia. I should have ordered it on Yesasia while it was still available... Hope customs don't charge me for this one.
