Some of the things I noticed while watching this time ... and it's strange since I was watching on an IPod was the facial expressions of Noboru. For example, Mikako is riding on the back of Noboru's bike and she says "Look up ..." I never noticed Noboru's expression ... it's one of shock/surprise. There are another few times where the facial expressions of the characters really took me by surprise. I'm so used to looking at the backgrounds ... I need to pay more attention to the characters :p

While late in replying compared to the rest of you, I do have to agree with all said and for me, the line that stands out most of all in the movie-sode (for me) was actually in the scene where Mikako was writing the e-mail to Noboru describing the flux tube between Jupiter and Io: "You have to see it to believe it"
It probably doesn't mean much to anyone else, but thinking on it, for me, she seems to be talking  about everything she experienced in her life until that moment.

(This is from the English-dub at any rate.)

imo the greatest film ever made  Very Happy

i saw an ad for 'Voices' in a playstation magazine just before it was released here in the UK on DVD & thought it sounded beautiful, being a massive fan of story led games like Star Ocean & Final Fantasy i thought i'd try to track it down.
i'd never seen an anime before this one & tbh not seen many films at all as i was a teenager who was into games & sports at the time but for some reason the film stood out to me & i had to watch it, so all those years ago (well 6 lol) i finally found a copy & watched it.... stunning.
seriously i must of watched it over 40 times now & i still get moved by it & enjoy it as much as when i first experienced it.
it's just an incredible achievement for 1 person on his home computer to make such a masterpiece of film making.
so my love for Shinkai & tbh my love for films started with this film so it is & will always be my fav film ever made.
