I am very hyped and excited for this!!!!!

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 !

Strange plot. I want to see more Shinkai non-sobrenatural works, like Byousoku 5 Centimeter and Kotonoha no Niwa.

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.
