I forgot all about this movie, and I'm glad it's already out. I guess I have to wait for the BD then if there is no U.S. screening.

It's been licensed so it's likely going to get some sort of minimal theatrical release.

Funimation's got the rights.

As long as they play it in more Canadian cities than just Halifax, I'll be happy. (I'm lookin' at you, Anthem of the Heart!)

I just saw the movie and all what I can say is, this is perfect.

Everything from the visuals, the music, the VA's work, the narrative and direction, everything was perfect. The story itself is quite simple but at the same time beautiful on every possible way, yes is a love story but a really good one.

I'll put this in spoiler because is an entire review of the movie with spoilers included, so to have some consideration with the ones that didn't watched the movie yet.

Spoiler for Review + spoiler:


Long time that something make me feel this way, I'm so glad that this is a huge success because it deserves everything. There is no words to describe how good this movie is, I hope you guys feel the same when you see this movie.

Simply perfect.

I hope this movie is much much better than Anthem of the Heart since that one was forgettable and failed to capture any emotion. Nagai Tatsuyuki work has been a hit or miss lately, and knowing Makoto Shinkai, almost everything he does is just amazing.

So Funimation has the rights eh? Damm, I just don't like how they handle most of their releases.

I'm thinking of buying the Japanese BD as soon as it is out.

Nothing can be perfect for everyone. For me, way too many sweet songs, to the point it felt they were there to cover for a missing ingredient. And the "love" part was somewhat imposed on the main characters. Otherwise a great story.

It was good but I don't like those kind of endings so it was off putting for me and the "forgetting stuff" kind of annoyed me

Was wary of this when I heard it being compared to 5 cm per second.. Glad I watched it because it is NOTHING like that abomination. I simply despise stories with vague plot to "make a point" or whatever. The characters are 3 dimensional and interesting and funny and I was brought to tears at least twice :')
Spoiler for ending of movie:

Excellent film!

Engaging story, interesting characters, well paced and it took a few quick turns I wasn't expecting. Definitely down on my 'to buy' list once it becomes available.

Against all odds, I've crossed the finish line for myself. I found it enjoyable, and mirroring the sentiments of those before me, I cannot wait until the BDs become purchasable. Mind you, if it turned out any other way, I would've eaten a ghost chili in protest

Watched this one and loved it. This is my first Shinkai Makoto work too.

Really hoping i can see it in cinemas eventually where i live. I want to see it in all its glory. It also seems like a good film to recommend to friends who don't normally watch anime.

It's the first non Ghibli movie to hit 10 billion yen!

Indeed, this is truly a masterpiece!
This is my first Makoto Shinkai work too.
There is nothing i can complain with this movie except that we don't get any short scene of afterending story D:
Hopefully we can get special chapter / doujinshi the after movie ending story.

Those who first experienced Makoto Shinkai’s work through this movie: I say welcome, and I recommend watching his other movies too. They’re good and always have beautiful visuals. Some segments even feels like Terrence Malick movies (if you know what I mean). But I gotta warn you that the ending of some of his other works tend to be…let’s just say more heartbreaking compared to this movie IMHO .

I'm tempted to say that the other movies should be watched first, since this one ends up being the perfect way to cap things off (for the present, until Shinkai releases another film)

I agree. But what can we do? Due to some hype, many people ended up watched this movie as their first Makoto Shinkai experience. Oh well, it's still better late than never, right?

I think all of them are worth watching, so as long as one gets the full experience, that's what counts in the end

I don't think you'll be disappointed.
