Both are beautiful love stories with the same core theme: distance as a conflict. For 5 Centimeters per Second, this distance is a literal seperation, while in Hotarubi no Mori e, it is an emotional and psychological distance.

Both have amazing visuals and a heartbreaking story. They both deal with concepts of love and distance.

If you liked 5 Centimeters Per Second then you will love Hotarubi no Mori e. They are very similar. I'd say 5 Centimeters Per Second is "happier" but I find that i liked Hotarubi no Mori e more for it's upfront sadness and the ending seemed to make more sense.

The theme of "distance" lies at the core of both short romance anime movies. The "distance" here can be both physical and psychological.

Both have a somewhat bittersweet, pretty sad ending. The focal point is moving on in life, especially when it comes to love. The focus is on the main characters and the boy x girl relationship between them. Both are very well done and have beautiful artistic values.

Both are beautiful yet tragic. Similar in terms of long distance relationships and the idea that it's better to have loved and get hurt than not to love at all.

Hotarubi no Mori e have a story about love and distance, pretty similar with Byousoku 5 Centimeter. It also doesn't put much conflicts between the couple and thus, let the viewer to feel the same emotion as the main protagonist were.

"Maybe we try to leave as many Memories together as we can, knowing that one day we won't be together again" "And yes, it's true if one day the memories can fade, that's why people will leave something so that they can be remembered and never forgotten. and I'm sure people who have left will definitely live in the heart, in that memory they continue to live."

both about a central relationship over time, with hints of romance but much more. they also share a gentle art style and a subtleness of meaning making. Hotarubi no Mori e is more of a first summer romance, where as Byousoku 5 Centimeter is a reflection on how on a first love can echo through time to affect future relationships.

Both revolve around a relationship between boy and girl where love develops and yet in the end they cannot come together to find their happily ever after. In addition, the two films are similar in their use of visual styles and music to create a mood and draw in the viewer.

Romance, sad, drama, great story, just beautiful in general. I think Hotarubi no Mori e is very similar to this movie, except it also includes some supernatural cute monsters c: But unfortunately it is very short and I definitely didn't get enough of it. still a great movie!
