Description
Remember a time before cell phones could be found in every pocket? Or when even accessing the world wide web was something only readily available in a library? Back then letters still filled up postboxes and moments just felt so much more precious when captured on Polaroid film. Now life seems to move at the speed of light. Our memories are captured and shared with the world on social media platforms. And love, which is already capricious, can feel like it is moving at terminal velocity.

Good but dissapointed

The story and the art are pretty good.
But I was hoping for something more cheerful and sweet. It's not a sad story, but it focus mainly on past, regret and moving on from them. Maybe only the 2 last page depict a bright futur even thought it's just suggested.
So ll in all I really enjoyed the story and the ending but I'm not found of that sort of story full of melancholy and past love with a good ending that we don't see except a premise that leave everything to our fantasy. That's why I'm dissapointed.

You could said that this story is about a guy that meet 3 girls at different times of his life (young, adolescent and adult) and how they took part in his life.

Seeing the rave comments this manga had, I decided to give it a go. It may be because I am immature ,but, I just couldn't enjoy the manga. The pace was too slow, the main character is always angst ridden, the manga itself is depressing. I can go on about the list of things that irritated me.

anyway I will try giving this manga a shot after a few years to see if I can understand what the drama's all about.

The problem I have with stories like this is that either of them could of made their feelings known to the other if only they would open their mouth. Does it really take THAT much courage to tell someone you like them. No, she would rather sit in her hometown and sulk for a few years instead of gathering a small amount of courage and voicing her feelings. Even if rejected, at the very least you can close that chapter in your life and move on. its a small price to pay, but the reward could possibily be great. This type of plot is overused in manga and I no longer have any sympany for characters that wont open their mouth.

I have a thing against manga adapted from anime because they feel wrong footed in the medium when you see scenes you *know* work better in motion and incredibly awkward sequences that attempt and fail to create the source materials, but this is nothing like that. And it adds to the characters, especially in that the first act is much more nostalgic than the anime with the

first love letter thing
. It isn't as vibrant but the character designs are greatly improved -- that says more about the anime really.

What I like most about Shinkai is the atmosphere, and hey, the manga has it. Just look at the cover.

Its good, but who is this annoying short haired bitch?! I hate girls like her! They just fall in love with a guy after he says one nice thing to her then never leave him alone. They just expect the guy to love them even though the guy like someone else and they always play the pity card! Oh I hate people like that!

It feels like right-holders suddenly remembered they could make more money by making copy-pasta manga-version of the anime. So they called some second-rate artist, some students to draw backgrounds for food and here we go - a manga. It's so much less than original anime.

I watched the anime like many other out there and i really liked it. But even though i liked it i kinda disliked it too. It was just too heartbreaking. When i read the manga apadtion i kinda hoped that i might find it less heartbreaking but when i read it now it is just as sad as i remember it... Especially when you know the ending already.
The manga by it self is nice. If you haven't seen the movie/ anime you might find this a good read (based on chapter 1-3). The art is alright with detailed backgrounds and all. And the characters well... If it follows what i know about the movie is true here too then the characters aren't shallow.

This is really such a sweet (not to mention sad) series.

Since the main two characters are really the only characters you learn about, you grow really attached to them. Hearing their stories through their letters to each other makes my eyes water... But then again that might just be because it's late at night. All in all, I think it's adorable, though heart-breaking at times.

the anime is one, and might be the only one, that made me avoid it once i finished it. not that it wasn't good. in the contrary, it's really good, it's great! but the sadness the protagonist has to suffer is just unbearable. love suffering, which intensified in the last scene (ending song), plunged me into bluish-green melancholy.

and here comes the manga adaptation. and here i only talk about the anime. and here i remembered how sad the story was.
