considering how time travel usually gets the worst results possible I was seriously expecting more drama, was a pleasant surprise that this was rather friendly.

Sympathic characters, decent art and OST.

The whole romamnce thing seems more like a typical teenage romance you have for a short time only. So Im not really to sad about the ending.

Was a nice watch, nothing life changing, no deeper themes. Barely the standard coming of age. 8/10 for now. Might drop it to 7/10 later

PS: all this over a painting, wow.

The direction of this movie is really clever, it gives a fun little story even more personality. Have to love the casual reveal that the dude's from the future. Everything is so mundane, but that's a good thing. Appreciate the stills they chose for the ending credits too.

It takes a lot to make me feel engaged to the setting and characters in an anime movie, but I was totally invested from beginning to end.

Gotta admit, Takase is an interesting incidental character, he doesn't take shit from anyone.

The first time I heard about this film was through an AMV that really made an impression on me (on megavideo of all places). I remember the title of the video being in Japanese, and I hard to ask around the net to figure out what it was. Despite all of that, I never watched it until now. The only thing I remember from that video specifically are the baseball and bike scenes.

"Time waits for no one", huh.

This is at least the third time I've watched this one, and it's a good movie. It has funny moments, serious moments, and its message is consistent I guess. But the conclusion still feels lacking/off.

Chiaki came from the future to see that painting, and he was gone before he could do it. Makoto told him that she would do her best to preserve it, and he told her that he would be waiting for her in the future. This may be only innocent/earnest promises they made each other, but as a viewer I feel like I was left hanging on somehow. Going by the little Chiaki told her about his future, it's a really far off one, it doesn't seem feasible that they will meet again someday, or that she will truly be able to keep her promise of preserving that painting.

But well, he came for the painting, but he stayed because of Kousuke, and especially Makoto. He even fell in love with her so maybe he got way more than what he came for, but it is still lackluster. Makes me wonder if she couldn't pretend to not know anything after going back in time for the last time, and just keep living with Chiaki, and Kousuke like that. I mean, she sorted her feelings, and even though he had to go back someday (I think he had to?), he wouldn't have confessed to her if he were in a hurry, and the memories of the time they spent together stayed in the end, so a 'happy ending' felt possible, but it may be just me.

That moment in which she sees Kousuke, and Kaho dying right in front of her, unable to prevent it because of her previous poor choices, always gets me. Chiaki going back in time to save them erased this memory, and she won't have to live with it, but it must have been awful, and a terrible sight.

Really good movie. If it ended with
, this would have been a 9/10 film for me at least. Somehow, the way it ended here felt slightly like a cop-out. Not bad by any means, but less impactful. 8/10 for me.

One of the most disappointing movies I've seen in the past few years. Overrated pile of shit, I can't believe I even managed to sit through the entire thing.

I sure hope they do. I loved the Movie, finally watched it after 2 years of keeping it in PTW, wish I had seen this sooner. Rating 10/10 because I'm too generous (I cried goddamit!)

So...
This was pretty darn mediocre. Not at all what I expected. A good reminder to never believe even the slightest amount of hype.

It is not by chance one of Mamoru Hosoda's best films, therefore, every time I see it again, I am satisfied with what this film can convey to me. The protagonist can be counted among the best in the female panorama without a shadow of a doubt. The narration flows without problems and almost does not notice the past time. Beautiful backgrounds and even the soundtrack.

9/10 for me.

This film definitely wasn't how I expected it to be from the look of the poster but it was a very engaging, amusing, and intense ride. The casual comedic interactions between characters and Makoto being a massive goofball who surprisingly hasn't had brain damage from all of those hits to the head were really funny while the more intense and dramatic scenes succeeded in making me feel very tense.

Even though she used her incredibly handy ability for really dumb reasons most of the time, it's very understandable on why she took just a strange power for granted and I really felt bad for her when she started to realize that what she's doing had a very big impact to those around her. I'm glad that Chiaki was able to help her out and give her a chance to fix her mistakes one more time. There are a lot of questions left unanswered about the movie but I'll leave it at that since time travel's complicated as hell and I'd rather not think about how everyone's coping in all those timelines Makoto ditched all of a sudden after she screws up.

Kousuke sounded way too much like Pirate Hunter Zoro lulz

This was a great movie. It definitely deserves to be considered the best movie of 2006. So all of you who havent seen it should. It is a good watch while waiting for 5cm per Second.

is this anime worth watching?

The whole thread, 16 pages basically says, it's worth watching. I mean, why wouldn't it be. It's a movie, it's by a good studio, madhouse has a reputation, it had an amazingly high mean score, and, the viewers love it. Do you have any other reason not to call it worth watching? I mean, I re watched it today, if you haven't, you can atleast watch it, that's is, if you haven't up till now, given I'm replying 6 days later. And sorry I won't be able to take my words back if you have watched it cause unlike Makoto, I can't time leap. :(
