5cm Per Second

From the art and mind who brought us "The Voices of a Distant Star" and its followup, "The Place Promised in Our Early Days," comes a new epic movie. Makota Shinkai's "5cm Per Second: A Chain of Short Stories About Their Distance" debut in Japan on March 3, 2007 brought many hardcore anime fans together. Shinkai's newest work is composed of 3 separate chronicles -- A Tale of Cherry Blossoms, Cosmonaut, and 5cm Per Second. According to IcV2 News , ADV has made plans to release the movie theatrically before its DVD release this December.

Shinkai is well known for his one-man work on "Voices" and his distinctive and unique style with themes that center on isolation and loneliness.
