Streaming Pick of the Month: 5 Centimeters per Second


May is a gorgeous time of year and it often feels like it hangs in a delicate balance between a calm lull and the slow stirrings of spring. A perfect time for a beautiful, though sad, Pick for this month.

5 Centimeters per Second is a movie that follows the life of Tono Takaki as he falls in love, moves, grows up in a world full of changing technology and islands and summers and messages never sent until he reaches adulthood where his new responsibilities force him to re-evaluate what he wants out of his life. Directed by Makoto Shinkai, this movie is full of breathtaking settings that interweave with the realistic relationship dynamics and situations. If you love gorgeous films, this is one not to miss.

5 Centimeters per Second is a movie and is available in sub or dub form for free, legal viewing via Crunchyroll.

Note: Streaming shows are not always available for free viewing. Be sure to watch the shows of your choice before they’re gone!

About inrosegalaxy

Raised on everything from Moby Dick to the Star Wars X-Wing books from a young age, it came as no surprise to anyone who knew me that I’d become a literature graduate and avid writer. But my love of a good story wasn’t restricted to the written word in my early years. Star Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and badly dubbed Godzilla flicks helped shape my love of science fiction on screen as well. I wrote my first story while in the second grade. It was a horrifying tale about murdering a fairy-eating dog via a slice of pizza (in my defense, my only exposure to pizza was in the cafeteria and I swear you could legitimately kill someone with those things). I was a special snowflake. Today I write science fiction, fairy tales, Gothic epistolaries, fantasy and anything else that pops into my bizarre and twisted mind. I write new articles for my blog every Tuesday and Thursday. And if you happen to fancy Japanese animation, I also run an anime review blog, RRAR, which updates every Monday.
