One of the most visually-breathtaking Shinkai films yet:



Though I thought “She and Her Cat” had the best dialogue and “Voices of A Distant Star” had the most heart-breaking story, “5cm/sec” almost had the best set animation design and fluidity in all aspects of the animation world. Yes, it could even be compared with Pixar’s “Finding Nemo.”

The character’s hair, especially, would only have its medium color, a side of darker color to indicate shadow, and light sketch-like lines to show the sun’s impact.
