I smell Kino, hopefully not a depressing ending.

I recently watched a lot of his older works and I'm excited to see what he puts out this time.

All his works involve weather in a way or another, and I like this fact. I'm not sure about the plot yet but I don't doubt Makoto shinkai's abilities and imagination, and I can't say much about a movie I haven't yet seen. But I'll say one thing : I will never compare it to "kimi no nawa". As much as it holds a special place in my heart, it's just unfair to compare "Your Name" to his other works. I believe that each Movie is a special case, a special world that needs to be looked at and rated individually, if I may say so, without making a connection to another world that it's completely different, in terms of characters, story line, atmosphere, music, value and significance.. basically everything. That being said, I'm so hyped for this movie !

True. I also hope Shinkai makes another movie like that. Something that focused more on the real-life aspect, beautiful and bitter at the same time. I do like Kimi No Nawa but not as much as Garden of Words or Byousaku.

i'm actually looking forward to this i think it can be great

I feel like this will be good. Not his greatest, but at least it will be beautiful.

the synopsis sounds interesting so i'm really looking forward to this.

The synopsis sort of has a Place Promised mixed with Your Name feel. I wonder if this will be a full-on 90+ minute film or a shorter film.

This is something that I'm looking forward, wew >w< also Masayoshi Tanaka yes!

Lame title but I cannot wait. At the very least this will be a visual masterpiece but I trust Shinkai will create something great.

Cool. Should be good.

So, who wants to bet that it will ultimately be about the distance between people? I've never seen someone rehash the same theme so many times. I do enjoy his works, but every time I watch a new one I feel like I've already seen it before. Hopefully I'll be proven wrong in the end; I'd love to see him tackle something else.

I have the strangest sense of déjà vu right now.

I think he has realized that those type of movies just don't work with the anime community.Just look at the rating of 5cm/s,there is just no end to the drop of its rating.

The Byousoku's case is because many people were disappointed with the end. They were expecting a happy ending. That ending is so hard as real life and anime fans are often childish when things don't end by way they fantasized.

sounds a lot like kimi no na wa but it's about weather. well either way i'll prolly end up crying

That poster is beautiful. And with the power of weather manipulation, we're sure to see a wonder of different seasons (sunny, stormy, snowy, windy).

With Shinkai, his artwork is so beautiful that at times the story in his films becomes unimportant. So I look forward to this.

Another show coming to dethrone one of top 10 MAL show. Anyway I am interested to watch this movie for the visual which I imagine will filled with beautiful scenery.

Can't wait for more plotholes in forced teenage drama.
