Will it be able to top 5cm?

5cm per second was overrated crap. It took the exact same idea as Voices of a distant star and stretched it out to an hour and a half.

Hopefully this fellow starts trying to change his style a little bit.

Have you really watched those two movies ? 5cm per second lasts 1 hour...
The only similarity is the theme of distance, a theme that Shinkai seems to like ^^

Expecting lots of clouds/sunsets/general scenery porn.

Plot sounds pretty vague and a lot like everything Shinkai's ever done. I'm definitely on board though, just with some reservations. I'd love to see him try something new that doesn't involve teens/young adults going through some melancholic romance.

Is this the one he spent a year in London to gain inspiration for? Or was he just taking an extended holiday? Either way; do want.

Omg, the art looks amazing. I guess I can assume this will be a semi-depressing story.

Good news is good.

Although his themes have been repeated quite a few times now - I can't get enough of it, as has been said before:

oh wow, it really does look like a Ghibli film. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's like you've got Miyazaki's timeless character art with Shinkai's scenery porn and I can't think of anything better.<3

Anyway. Sounds just lovely.:3

do you guys also get this feeling that all your emotions are amplified and you feel like flying away when you watch Shinkai's movies?

okay, I've changed my mind about this being an eyecandy bore-fest (*cough*5cm-per-second *cough* ), the teaser looks pretty interesting.

Because the Art Director: Tanji Takumi ("5 Centimeters per Second", "The Place Promised in Our Early Days") made these 2 movies, I find myself to like this one.

On top of that IMO a adventure in a ever changing world sounds nice. Also scenery is top notch.

Dang...Irino Miyu again. And I was hoping this guy will never, ever voice anyone in Makoto-sensei movies...honestly he's so overrated so it's annoying.

It would be super weird if the girl who went through time would fall in love with the boy which is most likely her dad. Although the story does seem interesting, the scenery is just orgasmic. Looking forward to watch it!

Excited! But from the trailer it looks like it'll be taking more of a Ghlibi route than a 5cm one. Resemblance to Tales from Earthsea(?)

I've waited too long for this, def'n holding high expectations. Shinkai mentioned that a major theme is going to be "distance" like 5cm so I'm expecting another gloomy/melancholic movie. Although 5cm was a success, Shinkai and his work is still minor/underrated so I hope this will be the movie that puts his name up there, at least to the same lvl as Tokikake & Summer Wars. cant wait
