I've always thought of Byousoku as a long series of haikus, with the humans overshadowed by the world around them. I think of it as a Buddhist show, showing the basic unsatisfactoriness of life. That's something even deeper than character development.

Sorry for straying from the topic. But to all Hayate no Gotoku manga readers, Hayate was finally reunited with Athena after 10 years of separation. Their love story was also pretty powerful IMO.
To those people who are still bitter from the ending (5cm per second of course), Hayate no Gotoku might offer some degree of consolation to your hearts.

Plus, does anybody knows anything about Shinkai's next project?

I've watched this movie yesterday. It has been sitting near me for a very long time, and I had no idea what it was about. So, I've decided to give it a shot...

Oh.. My.. God. I guess I couldn't have picked a better time to watch it. Beside the fact that I'm also going to a very very far place; leaving a precious friend behind, the movie in itself was amazing. I loved the drawings, music, characters, and how the "distance" theme was used.

I guess I was expecting a more cliche ending; the girl and the boy ending up together. But that was just probably my naive expectation to avoid more tears...

Astonishing movie.

I think it was stated earlier that it was from the Novel.

He's back in Japan, from London, trying to mend fences with his cat. He feels the cat has betrayed him. So cat is at Shinkai's parents, Shinkai is nearby. Also, Shinkai is working on a Mac Air laptop all of the time and he thinks that he is as productive with it as he was with his regular computer, so hopefully good things are to follow.


cat's name is Sayuri

Here's a little AMV I tried to make with 5 Centimeters Per second. ^^


It's from Blu Ray, so I suggest you watch it HD at youtube itself.

all of Shinkai's stuff isn't "happy." the argument could be made that Place Promised was the happiest out of the three, but the message I think Shinkai wants to get out is hope, which =/= happiness. i would detail it more, but ya, school starts tomorrow. i kinda wanna go back and watch it now.

anywho, any news on the new project?

I haven't watched 'Place Promised' yet, its on my list. And I get the theme and all, but I think I would have liked it more if it was.. well.. happier. Maybe I'm just a sap. lol.

That's kind of the beauty of 5 Centimeters--the ending leaves you content in that every thing is resolved and Takaki has finally moved on, but at the same time you can't help but feel a little sadness that he didn't get his love and it leaves you wanting more--to see that future where he IS in love and happy. It's essentially the exact same thing Takaki is feeling with a completely different cause.

It's ending perfectly reflects your emotions with the protagonists and I can't really come up with many works in any field that have left me that way.

That is really true. Its a solid story. I'm still bummed that it took the guy SO LONG to get over it. Especially since he had at least two other greats girls near him, but I can understand how a beautiful girl will leave a strong impression on your when you're 13 and all.

Another gauge of the greatness here is how you really went through all of your emotions as you watched it. You really felt for the characters and their circumstances.

All of Shinkai's works are filled with a deep and kind of gentle melancholy. You feel like you're seeing the world through his eyes - he obviously sees incredibly beauty in nature and especially in the everyday creations of men, but also ultimately feels alone (this is a man who is currently not working because he feels his cat has betrayed him). I suppose "Place Promised" is ultimately the most hopeful of his works, but I would agree that hope is a better word for it than happiness.

Apparently there is a chinese anime movie series, "Window of Heart" (?) (心灵之窗), that copied some parts of "5 Centimeters per Second".

Links with some comparisons:

I've always thought of 5cm as a Buddhist religious film. For one thing, many of the images are like Zen haiku, giving a feeling of the immediate presence of the world. For another, the film conveys the basic Buddhist idea that life is unsatisfactory, a realm of inevitable suffering.

its fairly obvious they took 5cm and did a half assed editing job on it. the frames are exactly the same, except the chinese version has added layers.

so i felt like watching this again. so good. so very good. i'm only 10 minutes in currently, but i can already feel the emotions starting to come out.

also, i pretty much realized that Takaki screwed himself when he lost his letter. if that hadn't happened, EVERYTHING would have turned out differently. (or at least that's the lie i told myself the first time i watched it..)

and also, the ending song finally makes more sense now. now that i've actually sat and read the lyrics.. haha. should have done that a long time ago.
