“Hey… They say it’s five centimeters per second.”
“What do you mean?”
“The speed at which the sakura blossom petals fall… Five centimeters per second.”
Time is the longest distance between two places. It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important. Time may at moments of your life be a wonderful thing, as well as a terrible thing. Time is everything. Makoto Shinkai presents wonderfully in his masterpiece movie as time and distance being the barrier between two lovers. As it slowly passes, it gets harder and harder to reach each other as they move away and live different lives.
