Simple short story of life
1 November 2014 | by nukecxSee all my reviews

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.
