* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Symbolic only in the minds of the characters. These aspects are present within the title and other subtle details such as the cherry blossoms, the rocket launch and the train.



* DiegeticSwitch: The famous J-ballad "One More Time, One More Chance" can be heard playing first muffled through tinny speakers in a convenience store and then at full clarity volume through the ending montage.



* KissingDiscretionShot: Near the end of the first arc when the camera shifts to Akari standing on her tiptoes.
* LongDistanceRelationship: Between Takaki and Akari. It doesn't pan out for them.
* LovingAShadow: In third chapter, Takaki is no longer in love with Akari herself, but rather with the idea of Akari. All the things he is longing for are not physical but abstract things that he cannot grasp, which is why he finds it so difficult to find any way to resolve his longing. He's made efforts to move on, as evidenced by his relationship with his new girlfriend Risa, but he's as distant with her as he is with everyone else.



%%* SadTimesMontage:



* SoundtrackDissonance: The jarringly up-beat and low-fi, diegetic pop music in the second chapter is an affront to the SceneryPorn and the lovely soundtrack. One song piped in to the convenience store crows "daijobu da yo (It's all right)" while Kaene suffers her unrequited love in silence. In another case Kanae on her bike is passed by her sister blasting similarly upbeat and indelicate tunes. This seems to be a mordant joke about the interference of the modern world with even the potential solace of SceneryPorn in the midst of disappointment. The sonic environment is being destroyed.



* TimeSkip: There are two time skips, one at each chapter break.
* TitleDrop: The movie opens with the explanation about 5 cm/s being the speed at which cherry blossoms petals fall.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: The first act occurs in the early 1990s, and as such, cell phones and email are still relatively rare. As the story moves through the second and third act, these mobile devices become more commonplace.

* {{Expy}}: Takaki incorporates elements derived from the male leads in Shinkai's previous works, and shares some similarities to [[TheGreatGatsby Jay Gatsby]]
* FridgeLogic: In the last third, [[spoiler: Takaki and Akari cross the railway crossing just moments before two trains whiz past.]] Doesn't this world have the most basic of safety precautions?

''5 Centimeters Per Second'' is Creator/MakotoShinkai's third film, and was released in 2007. However, unlike his other works, the events here reflect the relentless nature of reality. The end result is a highly polished, but also very depressing, heart-breaking and beautiful romance movie.
