Personaly I would say Cosmonaut! I just love the whole story and setting of the episode. Not to mention the beautifuly done backgrounds! It was a nice short story that I found fit really well into the overall story of Takaki's life. With out him being the main character, showed the effects on other's his feelings had.

Even in the third episode he findshe just can not love his girlfriend.

Everywhere I've read, people's favorite chapter was 2 (Cosmonaut). Even Shinkai Makoto himself liked that one the best.

Probably because of the sad story of the second girl Kanae and her love for Takaki which he cannot return. I'm getting sad just by thinking about it again. Very beautiful scenes in there.

P.S The first one is called Oukashou. Razz

AAAAAAAhhhhhh ... Junpei .... you're right Smile Not sure how


i got the name of the first episode wrong Sad


I stand corrected.

Im not sure I could choose just one section, as I think the sum of the parts is greater than the individuals. If I had to chose it would be Cosmonaut though Smile

Can't remember where but I read somewhere that Shinkai and his team took over 5000 location photos to use in Cosmonaut. I would give anything to see all of them. Confused

I think my favorite one, if I had to choose, would be 5 Centimeters Per Second. I think that is where I became the most emotionally involved.

And the montage at the end is more or less constantly playing through my head. Razz

I really enjoyed the thrid episode though I wouldn't really call it an episode it was more just a conclusion. I feel it could have been done alot better how ever, the ended scene with the trains, I can not picture a better ending for the story.

It seemed like a short metaphor for the whole story then Takaki's smile meaning? Who knows.

I'm still unsure if that was a smile on Takaki since it was so brief. I've watched over it many times and I still cannot confirm he had shown a tiny smile or not.

Really? He sure seems to be making a smiling expression to me. Not sure else what I could make of it. (Eye lids slightly up, eye brows raised mouth curved slightly up and open.)

I thought he had smiled, too.

And I agree, the ending did seem to be more of a conclusion.

I need to rewatch 5 Centimeters sometime soon. It's going to be released in America on the 4th of March, right? I can hardly wait. xD

I asked a few people in other forums and found out that 5cm per second actually has a very low chance of ever reaching Australia. And even if it does, it could be next year or the next... There's no knowing with this country. It's not even properly anime licensed. Sad
