The reality is, he's not bad at all. He's overrated, however, which explains all the haters.

5cm/s is still his best

Wow thank you for wasting our time with incredibly unique movies that are incredibly original. one day I hope to get bodyswapped with him and truly see how much of a genius he really is as he makes another totally not generic movie that looks good so its worth watching compared to movies that are actually better written than his works

Garden of Words it's his best work.

I enjoy your movies. Thanks for making them.

he is so close to being one of the best, but his writing needs a bit more polish. I say if he tries and improves, a few movies down the line he could very well create a masterpiece.

I mean his movies have originality, visuals and sound good enough, so if he improves his writing to reach the same level, there will be nothing left to complain about.

can't wait for Suzume no Tojimari, just from the first look, it looks way more interesting than your name or weathering with you.
