It is said that cherry blossom falls at 5 centimetres per second. As they walk through the trees, Takaki yearns to tell his childhood friend Akari how he feels about her, but the universe pushes them apart before he can. Staying in touch over the years but slowly drifting further apart, Takaki tries to navigate relationships whilst stuck in the past, haunted by everything he left unsaid with his first crush. Told in three stunning chapters, desire, unrequited feelings and the harsh realities of losing touch collide in a beautiful romance from Makoto Shinkai, the innovative director of renowned anime Your Name.
