Do you know? The speed at which cherry blossoms fall…
5 centimeters per second.
At what speed must I live… to be able to see you again?
I watched 秒速5センチメートル or 5 Centimeters Per Second like a year or two ago, and it still remains at least one of my all-time favourite short animated films. Makoto Shinkai is an absolute genius. The art direction and the animation in particular was stunning, the best in the world. The plot may not be to everyone’s taste, but trust me, it’s a lovely film. Highly recommended.
