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.

my problem...

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.

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.

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
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
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.

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.

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.

Great story but felt a little generic

I liked the art, and I liked the story, but it feels like the plot centres around a topic that always seems to be used unrealistically; unable to move on because of regrets/and or unrequited love.

I don’t know how the mentality is in Japan, but it feels like a lot of manga seems to heavily imply that because you have regrets in your life, or you had a love that didn’t work out, it would take years to move on and live/love normally.

Which is simply untrue. People have a great capability of being able to move on from tragedy or heartbreak (not necessarily forget though). This is evidenced by people being able to find love after rejection or remarrying/finding new love after a death of a spouse.

The one message or topic that I did find realistic was that you sometimes need to face regrets that really hold you back someway to move forward.
