Pretty but with little plot or character development, just like all his other works.


I agree haha even though I'm a huge fan, but damn his animations are just way too stunning, never ceases to take my breath away.

The fact that he's animating real world locations makes me wish the world is as colorful as he portrays it to be.

Well, it certainly looks pretty. The guy's art direction is really nice, thus I believe it was a well done ad.

I was poking fun at Shinkai's works as a whole. Sorry if it flew over your head.

And I was implying there's some degree of pettiness in using a TV commercial to make a negative point like that. I'm not the biggest Shinkai fan but, c'mon.


You're not very good at this implying business, I must say.

That had some really nostalgic feeling to it.
I think it's a good way to make some money between the big projects.

Awesome art style. :)

Dec 14, 2011 10:45 AM by Onyxthegreat

i was more inclined to think he was making an anime rather than supporting a tunnel project no one likes half a world away... but money is money i guess
