I've been surfing around the internet looking for the novel for awhile but can not find it. Has it been licensed here yet? Guess it would make sense that it wasn't since the movie isnt even out yet haha!

Just an overview of what happens in the novel still it strengthened the movie for me beucase alot moe things make sense. For example why Kaena did not tell Takaki how she felt when she tugged on his shirt at the convenience store.

As well the story for the 3rd episode is much much longer, and makes more sense!  I hope this novel is licensed I really want to read it!

Cool ... looks like that novel is only in Japanese, from YesAsia. I'll ask Daike about the novels to see if he knows anything about them coming out.

I would worship anyone that can translate the entire novel most accurately. This makes me want to learn Japanese even faster.

Yeah ... I saw that the guy who posts those comments was from the UK and learned Japanese himself. I may just go ahead and order the novel and translate it when I get it. That would be cool.

Part 3 of the novel seem to be the longest and most detailed with Takaki's relationships with each girl.

And when I say detailed, I mean really. Some things are shown you never knew about in the film.
