About 5 Centimeters Per Second One More Side Novel

5 Centimeters Per Second: One More Side novel is based on the original story written by Makoto Shinkai, adapted by Arata Kanoh, and goes into in more details and depth from Akari’s perspective.

A contemporary classic, 5 Centimeters per Second won animator Makoto Shinkai international renown as a rare talent. Indeed, he just might be one of the most powerful bards of romantic longing and thwarted love working today in any medium. This official novelization narrates from the other side—for instance, from the point-of-view of the girl rather than the boy in the legendary first segment, “Cherry Blossoms”—to tell a story that is both deeply engaging for first-timers and astonishingly fresh for fans of the film.

Highly recommend to anyone

I bought this wonderful title a while ago, and I realized I haven't reviewed it. After seeing it on sale again, I thought to submit a review.

If you're finding about this for the first time, I highly recommend you check out the original source, 5 Centimeters per Second. It's a gorgeous work of art created by the director of Your Name and Weathering with You. This was one of his earlier works, and IMO, I prefer it in some ways over the aforementioned two.

I won't go into the story for spoilers, but 5 Centimeters per Second had a few adaptations over the years. There's the original film on DVD/Blu-Ray, and there's a manga adaptation. There's also a light novel of the original story.

This novel can be seen as a companion piece to the original sources. It's more or less a re-telling of the original source through the viewpoints of other major characters. For whatever it's worth, I recommend checking out the source first, but this is a wonderful story about young love and time.
