5 Centimeters Per Second Adapted Into Manga


https://d3fd5j8wprxn3h.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/5cmps.jpg A post on Kodansha’s website via Anime News Network this week confirmed a manga adaptation of Makoto Shinkai’s 5 Centimeters Per Second anime movie. Shortly thereafter, the manga, handled by Yukiko Seike, began serialization in the publisher’s Monthly Afternoon magazine on Tuesday.


5 Centimeters Per Second tells the story of a distanced love between Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari, close friends that find themselves drifting farther apart over a period of time, and is widely considered on par with a Miyazaki movie with regard to direction and storytelling. A novelization written by Shinkai himself is currently available in Japan.
