I enjoyed it, it was more upbeat than anything I've seen from Shinkai Makoto, or at least there was less of the sentimental feeling that I get when watching his stuff. But I still really like it. Also, Yanagi Nagi ^^ the ending was cute too, wonder if they got in?
Any Makoto Shinkai work is always great work. This short gave me nostalgia of back when I talked with him last summer after he released Kotonoha no Niwa. I'd definitely love to see this made into a full movie.
My eyes had an orgasm, then couple it with Nagi's insert song - an ear orgasm!
This one needs a movie.. a movie... a movie! Lots of potential with the premise, and this wouldn't probably end in a heartbreak.
"Children of Japan. And those who were once children. Listen! This is not a dream. This is not fiction. In reality, your superheroes were always fighting. To teach viewers courage and the meaning of justice! No matter how many enemies there are. No matter how strong evil is. Just remember. Does any another country have so many heroes? Has any another country been protected by multiple superheroes? Stand with me, friends! Remember when you used to watch your superheroes!
Once you may have given up this dream. But today, you can be a hero!"
Another visual stunner from Shinkai. I have to say, while I'm not a big fan of his stories, I love his art and animation. And I agree that this looks like something that would cheerful and lively. It really drew me in within that 2 minutes and made me want to know more about those characters - I'd love a movie/OVA version!
I have mixed feelings. Makoro Shinkai is great. But the characters.. they seem indecent to me, bring a feeling I'm being flattered, some kind of importunate fanservice or like the author is sucking up to me. And they also remind me of kyoukai no kanata characters too much. It's all ok for an advertisement video, I'm just disappointed to see it mixed with Makoto Shinkai's work which is more original and mature IMO.
Movie pls or a 13 ep series! i could imagine a series like this:
ep1 life of the girl
ep2 life of the guy
ep3 life of the girl
ep4 life of the guy
ep5 life of the teacher
ep6 first part life of the guy, 2nd part life of the girl
ep7 first part life of the guy, 2nd part life of the girl
ep8 life of the teacher, life of the guy, life of the girl
ep9 finally all mixed together
ep10 all mixed together
and then its up to the story itself, what would be the direction. i would like to see something like this:
ep 11 first part old life of the girl, 2nd part old life of the guy
ep 12 teacher
ep 13 (final) all together again or guy, girl, teacher seperated (depends of the story ending itself)
For intros, you couldn't get anymore generic than this. But because of the beautiful execution of Makoto Shinkai, I can't feel anything but awe in how he was able to present a simple yet light commercial that really is a treat.
Those 2 kids are really driven to actually take away something from distance learning courses. The sad part is that most will more likely end up procrastinating the assignments and blow off the cram courses; not mentioning having the same answer is a cause for possible plagiarism and cheating. XD
Awesome commercial, terrible product. ;p
By god. That is something unbelievable. Truly, truly, unbelievable. I have never seen something like this in all my life. You got this really amazing animators, great idea for a story, likable characters, great music....
AND YOU USE IT FOR A 1:59 MINUTE COMMERCIAL?
I cannot even comprehend it. All the time I thought I was seeing a trailer for it. How can you do such a thing?! It's like asking Leonardo Da Vinci to draw a picture on a stamp! It's so tiny, and you know it's great, but there's no way to enjoy it!
