In entertainment the audio-visual experience is as important as the writing. In blockbuster movies - which are Shinkai's specialisation - I'd argue that it's more skewed toward the former.
As you said, "all of his works are about eye candy with gorgeous animation". That combined with the awesome soundtracks makes for a successful work.
No-one - at least no-one I know - says that Shinkai has produced masterpieces or that he's a genius at writing, even he himself repeatedly told people to stop comparing him to Miyazaki.

His movies aren't well written, thought-provoking nor do they have good characters, but they're very enjoyable. They remind me of Nolan's movies in that sense - except that they are much less boring.

The most overrated director of our time . All of his works are about eye candy with gorgeous animation and boring, cliche plots with cardboard characters.
Compared to Makoto's works, which at least have great animation, A Silent Voice is also overrated piece of crap with its overdramatic melodrama and pseudo-deep characters revolving around physical and emotional abuse in order to evoke pity and empathy in the viewer. The only good thing about it that it's shorter than the manga which is even more cringy and filled with more pseudo-deep emotional moments. The original one-shot manga was somewhat decent though due to its shortness and therefore directness.

I haven´t watched a silent voice yet, but I thought yours was actually a popular opinion

I actually think weathering with you surpassed your name, I loved both but weathering with you hits different, thank you for the amazing piece of media, also, that skyfall scene had me tearing up

ChilTiN_ | May 14, 2:50 AM
Unpopular opinion, A Silent Voice was way better than Your Name in terms of writing and the story line.


DiscoMilf | May 8, 9:08 PM
someone with a [thing i don't think has good writing] avatar complaining about writing. what a joke. i am very smart and clever :drool:


CS16 | May 4, 12:00 PM
