Miou Aida and Haruki Serizawa might seem like polar opposites to those around them, but as the two third-years prepare to end their high school experience, they couldn't have been been closer. While Miou is a shy and reserved member of the school art club that prefers to stay out of the limelight, Haruki is the boisterous and confident ace of the movie club, already winning awards for his directing prowess. However, after a previous chance encounter during their school entrance ceremony, they quickly become friends despite their stark differences in personality. But although their closeness might be growing, they've never become anything more than just that, much to the bewilderment of their friends.

As their time in high school draws to a close, Miou and Haruki, along with their friends in the art and movie clubs, have just one year left to face their hidden feelings and the daunting task of deciding their future careers. The two might always be only an arm's reach away, but as Haruki chases his dream of becoming a professional movie director and Miou struggles with choosing a path for herself, they'll learn just how hard it is to get past those last 10 centimeters.

Before starting this review, I would just like to say that you CAN watch the other 2 movies after or before watching this. That is because they occur at the same timeline. The only difference being that each focuses on different couples.
Here's the titles of the 2 movies
Zutto Mae kara Suki deshita.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai
Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan wo.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai

10 cm. Such as short distance. And yet it is too much to close this gap between these 2 people. No matter what you try, distance in love is not something easily explained. Although the person you love may be right next to read more

Riding the wave of the recent popularity of melodramatic teen-dramas with a mixture of coming-of-age and troubles of expressing one’s feeling in fear of them not being mutual proved to be successful in the latest times, not judging the quality of each individual work related to these traits per se. However, one might as well be blind to not see that this particular instalment, harbouring the gloriously long LN-esque title “Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 cm Datta” (which I’ll just call “IBnKw10cmD” from now on, because why not?), is just riding off the recent hype concerning these titles in a completely uninspired and passionless read more

This series was absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed the hell out of it from start to finish.

This is an excellent example of a romance anime done right and was definitely one of my favourite animes of fall 2017.

Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart is a good example of a normal high school romance with no extraordinary characteristics or tropes you normally see in these sorts of anime and it still managed to keep me engaged with the characters and their stories.

The art style and music is fantastic perfectly syncing to the scenes and made them all the more powerful. I began looking forward read more

No matter what people might say, I personally like the HoneyWorks anime franchise. As of now, the story from their original music videos was adapted into two, hour-lenght movies, and this six episode series. The first movie focused on all of our three main couples, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. The second one was worse in comparison, the characters were especially weaker, but it still remained on the positive side of things. And now we have this. A short six episode series resolving around one of the main couples. Did it live up to the potential? For me, certainly yes.

First question that comes read more
