* DramaticIrony: In the second act, Kanae suffers greatly due to her inability to tell Takaki that she loves him, not knowing as the audience does that Takaki's own inability to communicate his feelings for Akari is causing their relationship to unravel.

Not to be confused with ''[[http://www.fantagraphics.com/5000kmps/ 5000 km Per Second]]'', despite the naming and thematic similarities of that European graphic novel.

* RealityEnsues: {{Long Distance Relationship}}s have to be worked at if they are to survive. Takaki and Akari's communication with each other slows and eventually dies out, and the relationship unravels; by the time they are adults, although Takaki has been nursing the feelings for years, Akari has not. In fact, [[spoiler:she has gotten engaged to another man and doesn't even recognise Takaki when they cross paths the final time onscreen.]]

Takaki and Akari's communication with each other slows and eventually dies out, and the relationship unravels; by the time they are adults, although Takaki has been nursing the feelings for years, his inability to properly convey this means Akari has not. In fact, [[spoiler:she has gotten engaged to another man and doesn't even recognise Takaki when they cross paths paths, maybe, the final time onscreen.]]

** Late in the second act, [[spoiler:Kanae says that if she doesn't confess to Takaki after having finally regained her surfing skills, she'll never be able to do it.]] No prizes for guessing that it doesn't work out.

** In the third act, [[spoiler:Takaki voices his belief that Akari will turn to greet him after they pass each other at the railway crossing.]] This too doesn't come to pass.

* AirVoyance: The FullyAutomaticClipShow in the third act includes a flashback to Takaki leaving the southern islands as Kanae watches his plane take off. JustifiedTrope in that it is a small community he's leaving that probably would have few regular flights, making it easy to know which one he'd be on.
