They\'re from the same director, so you can expect the style to be quite similar. Voices of a Distant star is a bit short in comparison, but quite similar otherwise. 5cm doesn\'t have the whole sci-fi element involved though... at least not as it stands after the first episode.
Anime as exceptionally beautiful and insanely detailed as these two can show you a quality of the animation that's on a very high level. The atmospheres of both shows are very similar to each other and grab you without letting you go until it's over, leaving you almost speechless. If you want to check out the pinnacle (at the time) of animation quality, watch these two.
Again, the same director, both are about relationships of distance, and I thought they were both very moving, must watch IMO
Both are directed by Makoto Shinkai, and deal with long distance relationships.
They are both made by the same director, Makoto Shinkai. And I must say, they have incredibly similar themes. Not in subject matter but they both concern themselves with matters of the heart and the distance between humans. One is a force separation while the other is a gradual drifting apart. If you like anime that makes you think, watch these two.
These are both stories about time and distance. The beautiful story telling with the artwork shows us how time and distance affect people and relationships.
both shows how extremely depressing life and love is. it pulls on your heartstrings to the point of tears.
Both are similars in many ways. My preference goes for 5 cm per second but if you liked one i assume that you will like the other too then ;)
Two people in love separated by two things that will never close or come to an end. Time and distance. Both are beautifully done (as expected of Shinkai) and have that depth to them that makes you think of Miyazaki.
Both are movies depicting an impossible love through time and space.
Both center around how the main character deals with handling a long-distance relationship, with bittersweet results. They're even by the same guy!
both deal with love over huge distances.
They are both same director's work, if you liked the style of one, you'll likely enjoy the other. They have also similar stories, since they are both about separation of lovers who try to communicate with each other. However, the artwork of voices of a distant star is not as good as 5 cm per second's.
Same director. Beautiful art. Deep meaningful stories of a couple that couldn't be together.
Though these two movies of Shinkai Makoto present two different perspectives about the effects of distance and time in a relationship, they still give me the same melancholic feeling towards the end. Voices of a Distant Star is about two people who were separated by unfortunate situations, but their commitment to each other kept them close to each other emotionally. Despite their struggles, they held onto on maintaining their intimate connection.
On one hand, 5 Centimeters per Second shows more angles about the subject matter. Both physical distance (episode 1) and emotional gap (episode 2) are presented in the movie. Unlike VoaDS, the protagonist was
They are made by the same director and are both visually stunning. The stories are both about a boy and a girl who like each other and get separated, but keep in touch by mail. In "Voices From A Distant Star" the girl goes into space to fight aliens and keeps in contact by sending text messages.The farther she gets the longer it takes to receive the messages. In "5 Centimeters Per Second" the boy moves and they keep in contact by sending letters to each other. But as time goes on they slowly start to separate. Both these movies are fantastic and are definitely
I think Voice is better than 5cm because in voice he tried everything he could, both OVA have a lot in common with amazing OST & great art. Similar ending.........
Both have the same director and involve a young couple burdened by long distance.
Both have the same director. The art style is very similar, which is one of the things that i love most about Mokoto's work. The plot between 5 centimeters per second and Voices of a distant star are different, however they both follow the theme of young romance being separated due to distance.
>They are "similar" due they are by the same director.
>The art is kinda amazing in both the work, but personally I prefered the character art of Byousoku 5 Centimeter (5 cm per second).
>They are short (24 min and 60 min) so you can enjoy both in your free time.
>Both are sad, no way on how you look them ,they are sad.
>Both yells: "Carpe diem, don't waste your chances" and actually that was the thing I loved about them.
>Overall I prefered 5 cm per second, but they are both awesome anime.
-Same director, composer etc...
-Both shows share same themes - distance and speed.
-Both shows represent two people relationships after break for certain reasons.
-Both shows is pretty hard to fallow, since they both have dozens of symbols.
-As typical for Shinkai works, both represents ideas in scenery.
-Both shows has amazing soundtrack, however artwork in 5cm/s is more detailed, because it's newer.
-Both shows are very realistic, but 5cm/s hasn't whole sci-fi element.
Those who liked one show, will surely like other one.
The longing for a loved one to return is the main theme in both.
Both are amazingly unique. The emotional depth is very strong considering that most or all of the dialog is done by the two main characters. There is also a great deal of stunning animation.
The ending though is quite different. There is a manga to Hoshi no Koe which provides a bit more closure. I won't reveal it, but you might like the ending of one anime over the other.
Hoshi no Koe and Byousoku 5 Centimeters are both directed by Makoto Shinkai. Similar themes are present such as exchanging letters/messages between two people in a long distance relationship. Hoshi no Koe might be considered the spiritual prototype to Byousoku 5 Centimeter in many ways.
Both anime are directed by Makoto Shinkai, so they have similar style and elements. Both deal with long distance relationships, giving the watcher a similar melancholic feeling. Both feature first-person narratives and are quite touching.
A distance relationship where the only way to communicate are texting, they will decrease when more distant from each other are.
They are both about long distant relationships and show the ugly truth behind them so if you liked one of the two you'll most likely enjoy the other. Also both of these series can be finished in one sitting.
You could recommend any one of Shinkai's works, seeing as they are all quite similar, but the one with the most similarities to 5 Centimeters per Second is definitely Voices of a Distant Star (and vice versa).
Despite being different in length and the latter including Sci-Fi elements, they are the same in that they feature two people who are separated by unfortunate situations, and how that distance inpacts their relationship. 5 Centimeters per Second portrays not only physical distance in ep 1, but also emotional disctance in ep 2.
The art in 5 Centimeters per Second is definitely better, seeing as it was made
"Voices of a Distant Star" and "5 Centimeters per Second" are both films made by Makoto Shinkai early in his career, and thus they have a lot in common both thematically and visually:
-they both have to do with a long-term relationship and two individuals drifting apart over time
-the music is very similar in both, emotional piano-based tunes
-the animation is also very similar, stunning background art, although the way the people are animated is a little unpolished
-the endings of both films are similar, end on a bit of a sad/bittersweet note
While "Voices of a Distant Star" is science-fiction and "5 Centimeters per Second" is far more
