Since this is one of the main discussion points on the board ... lets all take a stab at writing how we'd like to see an imaginary Episode 4.

I'll hold of on mine until a few people post.

Ill give it a stab when I'm done writing the short story I've been working on. I've been reworking it alot since it's very hard to read at the moment.

Change Episode 3 or make an Episode 4?

If the former: I'd have to rewatch it to see if there were any specific details I might change. I wouldn't change any events/plot details at any rate... That would change the whole story for me, and I love 5 Centimeters for it's story just as much as for it's characters.

If the latter: Episode 3 really ended the story for me. Akari got married, Takaki was finally able to move on (I think he was, at any rate), and Kanae... Well, Kanae's part was long since over.

Although it seems I'm not able to contribute anything, I'm interested in seeing how everyone else would do it.

I would have a very difficult time trying to come up with a new ending. I won't actually change anything in the story which might ruin it but maybe add something at the end, say an epilogue after a few years time showing Kanae and her new life as a new person... maybe.

To make it clearer ... how would you think Takaki would act after his chance encounter with Akari at the train crossing ? How do you think Akari would act?

You're not getting graded here so just take a stab Smile

Well .. here's all I would add to the movie to really wrap it up for me ...

After the montage in episode 3 ... when Takaki turns and walks away from the train crossing ... if he would pull out his cell phone and either call or text Risa asking her to dinner or to meet up later. I think that would be a nice happy ending for me signaling his moving on.

Hmm, I forgot about this thread haha. I better think of something simple so I will remember about it later.

He paces him self forward and begins to walk after seeing the lady. He walks through a park. The same bird from his dreams he sees lands on a bench. This compels him to sit there. (Or something like that, we see those birds alot.)

He sits down. He finds it hard to relax. He sit's back and stares up into the sky. He begins thinking of Kanea, high school, Akari, Risa, University.

His phone rings. It's Risa. He is tentative at first, but then he smiles. They have a casual conversation.

I've been reading Xcomp's summary of the 5CM [not quite finished on part 3 yet but it's getting very interesting!], and although i think the ending was excellent as is it, one thing i think would be interesting to see would be if Takaki somehow ran into Kanae after the many years apart.
Maybe it would be the exact opposite of what happened with Akari. She may still think about him and now maybe, after he's moved on from Akari, he'll be able to really consider her renewed feelings for him.

I think this'd be an interesting side story that could developed.

that would be pretty cool to see if he and Kanae had a chance encounter ... and if he would look at her rather than past her for once. Good call on that one Maltos.

This will be something I'll do over the course of summer probaly I think.
Yeah doesnt sound like a bad summer project to do in between work =]

Well right now I already know how I want the ending to be =P

But ya where I want to end it is in the store, Takaki is looking in the magazines and puts it away and walks into the back of the store to get a can of w/e to drink, but drops the can and bends over to pick it up, but as he rises he see's a familar face in the reflection of the glass as he smiles/smirks and it will be HERE that I would either end it and let the guessing of WHO's face be up to the audience.

That or I would reveal the face being Akari *since I liked her more then Kanae lol* And then she would smile and say "could you hand me the one on the bottom plz" and so he hands it to her and they part ways.

OR

She would go and say to him "Your still drinking that drink I made all that time ago, as Takaki bites into a Rice Ball and says " well I told you that they were amazing and smiles"

Idk something like that not sure tho.

Whacha think ppls, and give me a break ppl I just made this up as I was typing lol
=P
