Makoto Shinkai's blog announced at the end of last year that he is working on a new movie. The director spent New Year's Eve drawing storyboards and said he hopes the new film will be more fun, more beautiful, and that it will surpass his other works (Kotonoha no Niwa, Byousoku 5 Centimeter, and more). While no title or release date has been announced yet, Shinkai said he would dedicate all of his time to this new movie in 2015.

Even if the story sucks (doubt it), at least it will look frigging amazing. Also it seems like he might be moving away from the "heartbreak" movies he's well known for.. maybe a completely happy story this time.. we'll see.

I thought this was old news? I remember reading something about him focusing only on this project for 2015.
Might just be making it up though, good news regardless I guess though, he has come a long way.

I actually don't want a prettier movie from him. I want a movie with more concrete storyline from him!

He's better off doing romance than movies with an actual story honestly.

Looking forward to it! Honestly I watch his movies for the stunning visuals, the stories are there for the sake of being there.

It doesn't say anywhere on the blog that this movie will be released during 2015.

He only says that "2015 will be devoted to (making a movie that will be more fun, more beautiful, and more distant than my past works)."

Careful with the Japanese.

EDIT: Seems like Kineta fixed it seconds after my post.

Yeah, that's what I thought I heard before too, and sure enough his post is from a month ago too.

Yeah, the post is a month old. We were quite late on posting this. It seems some users still weren't aware of the news though, and since Makoto Shinkai is very popular (ranked #22 on MAL) it's nice for them to know.

I hope the text is more clear now that it's an older blog post and that there is no information about its release yet.

Thanks for your help :)

In another translation I read, they made it pretty clear that the movie won't come out until 2016 probably. Also, his movies usually come out once every 3 years.

That's really great!
No matter what he is one of my favourite anime directors and more importantly one of the most hard-working guys in industry. Looking forward to it!

Still pretty soon for anything Yasuhiro-related I'd say, something Harmonie-related some day would be nice.

Great news! And I will definitely be happy if it is even more better than Kotonoha no Niwa in terms of visuals, romance, and story.

Wow... That's still damn AWESOME news!! :3 Can't wait already. I haven't see any of his work I didn't enjoy. If 5/cm is masterpiece, I'm pretty sure this one will be the same. <3

Great, let's just hope this time he does something that differs more than an inch from everything else he has done in the past 15 years.

This is really exciting news a a Shinkai fan [sent a glance to my dvds].

Honestly, he has been a one trick pony for a while. I'm glad he seems to be branching out. Not to say I am not a sucker for heartbreak and pretty visuals.

Hopefully it will be better than Kotonoha no Niwa, which I wasn't too fond of. If anything, Shinkai doing something that is a little more lighthearted seems pretty interesting.

5cm/s was great, Garden of Words was visually better than 5cm/s, but the story wasn't that good.

If this new movie looks better than Garden of Words and have a decent story then eveything's good.

I will definitely be checking this out. Although I don't usually really, really enjoy his works, I appreciate the depth he puts into them. And all of his works have amazing animation that I can't get enough of :)

And yeah I just asked tsubasa to submit this news because I didn't know about this despite it being a month old :P thought others might want to know.
