Some sakugas from trailer. Moderators should add English title to threads title for easier search.

^ This is Makoto Shinkai's precision. Without a doubt.

Dem animations

Makoto Shinkai never fails on that front.

Here's an idea - how about Shinkai Makoto doing a film adaptation of Otoyomegatari?

Never mind - I think everyone's eyes would explode...

The Blu-rays/DVDs will have English subtitles.

I didn't know this was only going to be 46 minutes long. That's a minor disappointment.

46 minutes really is short.

It is true, that "shorter but awesome, instead of longer but only average" but I still expected about 60 minutes, maybe 80.

The length of a film alone doesn't matter as long as it tackles its subject adequately with the amount of time it has. Hoshi no Koe, also directed by Shinkai, is only 25 minutes long and it's a personal favorite of mine.

The theme song of the movie "rain" is a cover of an old song, "one more time one more chance"'s lyrics were relevant to 5cm/second so I figured I'd look up the lyrics

Quote:
Now we live separately. I no longer have the strength
To grasp the sky that’s on the verge of tears.
If you’d stay unchanging, in a corner of my heart, always hurting me,
I don’t need you anymore.
Oh boy, here we go again

Nice music.

Though, I still think, that Shinkai's are is more fitting to very epic piano tunes.

So short.. but so damn pretty. Shinkai's never fails to deliver on the art and animation. Glad to see hes back doing love stories, that last foray into Ghibli territory didnt work out so well

voices of a distant star was amazing. movie length =/= movie quality.

I was going to say this was my favorite of his so the length might be a good thing.

Looks like 'distance' will play a huge factor in this one again, having been given away from the recent ANN interview after the Australian premiere.

Which makes me even more excited to see this!!!

Having attended the world premiere last weekend I figured I'd give a quick and spoiler free impression of the movie. The Garden of Words is short but delivers the story adequately imo. Characters acted true to their age and personalities. I really liked how the movie presented Takao's view of Yukino as a mysterious older lady to the viewers too. You're left guessing about Yukino's situation even when the POV shifts to her. It'll be interesting to see what people think of Takao and Yukino's relationship and the climax of the film.

The soundtrack is limited but the few tracks that did play were nice. However I felt that the volume could have been toned down when characters spoke cause it got a little distracting trying to listen to the dialogue. Production wise, it's another deathly gorgeous film as expected of Shinkai. Especially for foot fetishists. lol

If you think that it's like 5cm, then you're not really off but at the same time it's no 5cm rehash. The emotions are a lot less... bottled up(?) than 5cm, particularly towards the end. A lot of symbolism in it too. The Q&A session was pretty informative and shed some light on the symbolism and wordplay that went into the scenes. Unfortunately the interviewer was kinda incompetent, so the session didn't feel as well utilized as it could've. The audience's questions were only a little better. Most useless question award goes to "why are the characters less detailed than the background?". There's also a hilarious yet facepalm worthy moment where the interviewer brought up how people called Shinkai's works "scenery porn". I really wonder how his translator explained that to him.

Shinkai himself is a great man in person. Humble and friendly, he really did all he could in order to allow all his fans a chance to greet him to the point he held another autograph session after the movie for those who were at the back of the (very long) queue earlier and did not get to have a go. Those of us who were first in line were even allowed to come back to take photos with him. It was a truly unforgettable experience.
