The love of Japanese high school students Mikako Nagamine and Noboru Tera is tested when Mikako is sent to fight aliens in a distant universe and voice mails to and from Earth become months to years in transmission.
Told in three interconnected segments, we follow a young man named Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, and finally, adult obligations and responsibility converge to test the delicate petals of love.
Simple short story that tells us how fast things move in life, and connection between family when you grow up.
Makoto tried to show us the true emotions between family after we grow up, we lack more and more time for our family, and only respond in some rare important situations, which can actually be last chance to make a contact.
Would be really nice story if full movie, which would practically change the main topic of Makotos movies, but still deep emotions involved. I am interested how will Makoto proceed with different topics in his career. Still the best work until this date 5 Centimeters per Second has no competition and I am really keen to see new works.
