Cholisose: ''I’m a huge fan of the film 5 Centimeters Per Second. In fact, it’s my #1 favorite anime film (if not favorite film, period). Everything about it was beautiful to me, from the art and the music to the storyline and its style of presentation. It was perfect, and it’s given me more to ponder over than probably any other movie has.
So it was an extremely pleasant surprise when I saw there was a manga adaptation of the story sitting in the bookstore. Flipping through it quickly revealed that this was going to be worth buying. And I’m glad to say this manga is not just a rehash of the film, and actually manages to stand on its own as an excellent story.''
