This looks pretty similar to his early works, I was hoping for something that's more along the lines of Garden of Words. Oh well..

Will definitely watch it although it looks a bit too Byousoku 5 Centimeter-y for me

He should do more stuff like Kotonoha no Niwa

Synopsis sounds kind of generic, yet interesting... Will probably give it a chance.

I'm a fan of his work, I'll check this out. Maybe it'll turn out like Boku wa Mari no Naka :P .

I hope he goes a bit out of his comfort zone with this, doesn't look like it though.

Definitely looking forward to this, hope it separates itself enough from his other films though since as a couple people have already said I'm getting a strong Byousoku 5 Centimeters vibe. Not that I don't like that one, it's one of my favorites and I wouldn't mind if it had a similar tone, just don't want it to practically be a twin of it.

I don't know how I feel about the synopsis but the artwork looks incredibly beautiful. Most likely going to watch this when it comes out.

It's gonna look absolutely stunning.......but come on, it looks like every other movie he's made. When's he gonna realize that making the same movie 5 times gets old after a while...

WHAT?WHY?oh japan...

Lol seems like your the only one who pointed that out. It also made me go o_o But in a good way, it sounds sort of like Sense8...but dream version. I think it's another unique concept from Shinkai.

I love Shinkai's works, and I know a lot of people want him to go out of his comfort zone, but I like his usual style of writing. I think it's interesting that his style is so controversial :)

Anyways, really looking forward to this. Been wondering what his new project was.

Also, Iwai Shunji!!!

The story is set one month after a comet that has fallen for the first time in a thousand years in Japan. Mitsuba, a high school girl living in the countryside, wants to live in the city because she is tired of life in the country. Then, there's Taki. He's a high school student living in Tokyo with his friends while working as a part-timer at an Italian restaurant. He also has a strong interest for fine arts involving architecture. One day, Mitsuba dreams of herself as a young man. On the other hand, Taki also has a dream where he is a female student attending high school in the countryside. What’s the secret behind their dreams?


sounds kinda gay....and i usually like his movies

Well, shit. I'm sold! I was kinda close to tearing up, NGL!

This will probably end up as good as Kotonoha or even better.

Yes, yes, yes, yes! Looks and sounds beautiful, can't wait!

Now the dream part seems a bit weird though, hopefully they are dreaming of Each Others Lives and not just a boy/girl version of themselves cas that'll drop my rating a point.

Still can't wait either way though!

Now that I know what they're saying, I'm certainly going to watch it. I'm up for an "adventurous" romance.

Hmmm.... as an avid shinkai fan, of course it is...



Thrusters aside, it seems that (I might be wrong) Shinkai uses Crossroad as the source of inspiration. Well I love it, but my hype meter will pierce the heaven if he used Dareka no Manazashi instead of Crossroad, because like some other person here, it'd be better if he moves from his common "lover's romance" to "familial love."

But then again, this one's beautiful, and I love it already. Don't disappoint me, Mr. Shinkai >W<
HOW TO SAVE ANIME IN THREE SIMPLE STEPS

  1. To have Mars of Destruction, Skelter Heaven, and Pupa properly adapted in TV series form by Madhouse
  2. To have Inferno Cop properly adapted in TV series form by Bones, director: Urobuchi Gen
  3. An anime crossover of Mushishi x ARIA x Haibane Renmei.


Should even one of the above conditions cannot be done, anime is still at risk.

I'm gonna watch if for the porn sceneries.

But I'm not expecting a lot since the movies I've seen from him were all mediocre and boring.

I always said this dude was nothing more than a one trick pony and with each new movie he continues to prove my point, with the exception of "children who chase lost voices" (which isn't very good) all his movies are pretty much the exact same thing, a sappy , melodramatic romance with pretty visuals.

Was expecting he would do something different this time around but i guess that was asking for too much. Who the hell called this guy the next Miyazaki? everything he's made thus has been pretty mediocre or average at best.

Voices from a Distant Star in a A Garden of Words in a Place Promised in our Early Days ? I'm in.

Kidding aside, I feel both spited by the fact that he is reiterating his past works as well as supporting. If he tries to branch out it may lead to total disaster and alienate his fans and a part of me just loves his hyper-melodrama with sexiest backgrounds in history.

I won't be sitting through another slice-of-life movie by Makoto just to look at the visuals.
Not interested in this.
