August 26 is the release date but is that in theaters or BD? I can't wait that long man.

Edit: I'm stupid. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for a BD release + subs.

Makoto Shinkai is the only anime director in the industry that I know what to expect and what not to expect from his movies. It works EVERY SINGLE TIME. Except Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo.

If you appreciate animation you owe it to yourself to see this movie.

myself I'm not too excited about the length, one of the reasons Garden of words worked so well was its fast pacing, 5 cm per second all the while, put me to sleep.

Wonderful movie! I loved it and cry. I watched it again to understand the story line and still love it! I enjoy the story line, the music, the characters, the anime and the voice acting. This movie really moved me. Thank you for making this movie.
