* AmbiguousSituation: Takaki sees a woman in his dreams that looks like Akari, and he later sees her while awake in the final part. She never speaks, however, which makes it unclear whether she's actually Akari, a lookalike he's projecting her likeness onto or, given that they cross paths at a place that was significant to their childhoods that he [[ContrivedCoincidence just coincidentally happened to be at]], an outright hallucination. The film ends without declaring any way.

* GratuitousEnglish: As with Shinkai's other movies, it has a Japanese title (''Byōsoku Go Senchimētoru''/"5 Centimeters Per Second") but an English subtitle; in this case: ''A Chain Of Short Stories About Their Distance''.

to:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: You know the tune of the background music in the scene where Takaki and Akari part ways when they're 13 after meeting for the first time in years? Sure is pretty, ain't it? It's actually taken from a pop song, which supposedly pretty much everyone in Japan has heard about. It's about a man who persistently longs for his doomed love. If you know what the song is about beforehand, then you probably had a pretty good idea of where the plot of the movie was going.

Added DiffLines:

* SoundtrackDissonance:
** The jarringly up-beat and low-fi, diegetic pop music in the second chapter seems to be 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 Kanae 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.
** The third chapter, on the other hand, shows the protagonist browsing magazine racks with "One More Time, One More Chance" playing in the convenience store. Later the song moves from diegetic sound to the extradiegetic soundtrack: the effect is, at least meant to be, cathartic.

* SnowMeansDeath: Alluded to, though it's the death of a relationship rather than a person. In the first part, [[spoiler:heavy snowfall delays Takaki's trip to see Akari at Tochigi. Their relationship reaches its peak when they kiss that night in the snow, but it's all downhill from there; their relationship subsequently unravels to the point that she has found a new man, if not outright forgotten about him, by the time they see each other (maybe) a long time later.]]
