If you likedByousoku 5 Centimeter
...then you might likeToki wo Kakeru Shoujo
A great love story is what brings Toki wo and 5 cm together. Each involves love between people who are not yet adult but are not children, platonic love, and pure feelings between pure souls. You'll enjoy the romantic atmosphere that permeates through both titles.
Both movies are amazing romance stories beetween two young people. Stories about separation, distance and leaving the one you love. In both is similar atmosphere.
Watching 5 cm per second movie reminded me of toki wo kakeru shoujo a lot. Both are romance movies about separation of lovers. They both also have amazing artwork.
Somewhat similar artistic direction, both incorporate thematic elements of distance and letting go of an unreachable love(5 cm/s more so). Both also exhibit melancholic tones, though TokiKake is for the most part much more light-hearted and entertaining. If you liked one, definitely give the other one a shot.
Both are stories about love, about being young and about growing up. What is more important - they both are amazing; sweet, sad and full of feeling.
Both comprises of slickly executed take on high school, young-teenage drama compressed down to the most bittersweet messages to the most heartwarming ones. 5 centimeter per second, or otherwise Byousoku 5 centimeter, is particularly harsh in depicting the traditional Japanese's customs of "I like you, so I can't fall in love with you" and the shy, slick tension within male-female relationships; in showing a clearly visualized state of beautifully crafted & intricate backgrounds, it really sets the mood for its various themes containing the true harshness in realistic, matured romance relationships.

Neither of the anime have extremely clear nor definite endings, but are very heartwarming. 5 Centimeters mostly revolves around love and relationships while Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo shows the effects the decisions that are made can affect others. While the plots are different, the feeling in the story and the feeling the viewer gets will probably be similar.

Both of these movies deal with slightly different topics but offer a very good and similar moral lesson which is "time waits for no one", love and separation is another subject that's tackled on that these two movies have in common. With great production values and a great plot, it's overall a great movie that you should definitely not miss out on.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time has pleasing visuals, relatable main characters, and is yet another story of moving on, life, and love. The boy x girl relationship is focused on and the ending is also rather bitter sweet.

Both are magnificent romance films and incorporate intriguing tribulations encountered in maturity in a thrilling manner. Byousoku is more serious while Kakeru Shoujo contains some comedy, not to mention wacky time traveling shenanigans. Vital lessons can be learned from both.
