Love can move at the speed of terminal velocity, but as award-winning director Makoto Shinkai reveals in his latest manga comic, it can only be shared and embraced by those who refuse to see it stop. 5 Centimeters Per Second is a faithful adaptation of one of Shinkai's most recognised works, a powerful and timeless manga romance. Originally available only as a two-volume series, this single 560 page omnibus better replicates the pace and feel of the original film.

About the Author

Makoto Shinkai is a Japanese film director, animator, and writer. A native of the Nagano prefecture in Japan, he studied Japanese literature at Chuo University. He traces his passion for creation to the manga, anime, and novels he was exposed to while in middle school. Considered one of the best animators in the world today, he is often called the "next-Miyazaki." Shinkai developed his abilities as a video game designer for FalCom, where he worked on the cult-classic role-playing game Y"S. Shinkai is unique as an animator as he cut his teeth by producing almost all elements many of his works - from animation to music composition to voice acting. He has won numerous awards: 12th DoGA CG Animation Award; 1st New Tokyo International Animation FestivalGrand Prize; 7th Kobe Animation Prize; 6th Japanese Media Art; Awardfor Digital Media; 34th Nebula Award(World Con); 59th Mainichi Films Animation Prize; 2007 Asia Pacific Film Award; and theLancia Platinum Grand Prize (Italy). His film credits include: Voices of a Distant Star, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, 5 Centimeters Per Second, and Children who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below

Reviews

Praise for the animated film by Makoto Shinkai: [Makoto] Shinkai has been hailed as the next Hayao Miyazaki, and his dreamy mindscapes often equal or surpass the anime maestro in breadth of detail and depth of emotion." - Ronnie Scheib, Variety "In 5 Centimeters [Shinkai's] imagination may not leap to Hayao Miyazaki's strange and wonderful heights, but he is better (blasphemy!) at piercing the veil of the everyday to reveal a poignant, evanescent beauty most of us notice only in rare moments...Is he really the "new Miyazaki?" He won't become one by imitating the master, but at 34 he is the anime world's bright new hope. That and a brilliant minor gem like "5 Centimeters per Second" are enough, for now." - Japan Times Praise for the animated film by Makoto Shinkai: [Makoto] Shinkai has been hailed as the next Hayao Miyazaki, and his dreamy mindscapes often equal or surpass the anime maestro in breadth of detail and depth of emotion." - Ronnie Scheib, Variety "In 5 Centimeters [Shinkai's] imagination may not leap to Hayao Miyazaki's strange and wonderful heights, but he is better (blasphemy!) at piercing the veil of the everyday to reveal a poignant, evanescent beauty most of us notice only in rare moments...Is he really the "new Miyazaki?"
