Byosoku 5 Centimeter

Byosoku 5 Centimeter

Anime feature "Byosoku 5 Centimeter" is coming soon from director Makoto Shinkai, two years after his former work "Kumo no Muko, Yakusoku no Basho."

This time around, Shinkai will be telling a love story which has been in his mind for a long time. Characters Takaki and Akari are separated after elementary school graduation. Although they love each other, they have had no chance to meet for several years, and only time have passed. One day, Takaki decides to go see Akari, for he thinks it's the last chance for him to meet her before he moves far away. Then a snow storm hits. . . Includes three episodes ("Okasho," "Cosmonout," and "Byosoku 5 Centimeter.") featured from several point of view.

Limited edition comes with a bonus DVD (another version of "Okasho"(29 minutes approx), music video for the theme song, cast interview and more), a soundtrack CD (11 songs/28 minutes), and theatrical film cut. Order now
