The synopsis sounds interesting. I'm always looking for anime and manga that deals with heavy topics (Liar Game, Kodomo no Jikan, Fullmetal Alchemist, Spirited Away ... you know the type) so you can be sure I'm keeping my eye on this one

I'm not sure about that, this time (though it's not something I honestly care about). Especially if you read what he said previously about this work.

Anyway, can't wait!

5cm per second was overrated crap. It took the exact same idea as Voices of a distant star and stretched it out to an hour and a half.

Hopefully this fellow starts trying to change his style a little bit.

Have you really watched those two movies ? 5cm per second lasts 1 hour...
The only similarity is the theme of distance, a theme that Shinkai seems to like ^^
