Yes, Shinkai's people drawing skills are not too good, the characters looked a bit weird at times, however I didn't find it distracted from the story except in one scene where they were cycling along and her head was so much smaller than Noboru's that it looked rather bizarre.

AFAIK he did indeed make the whole thing himself (apart from the BGM) so it's not surprising there would be a weak point somewhere, no artist is perfect at everything.

Although the film was short, I found it long enough to get involved with the characters, I felt he managed to cram a whole movie plot into 25 minutes, there are plenty of 2 hour Hollywood movies with less story than Hoshi no Koe, and although the storyline was necessarily condensed it didn't feel cramped.

Catmint Tai#7 is going to produce a recitation play for Hoshi no Koe (Japan only of course) from April 23rd to 27th. More info here

I remember downloading and watching this in my high school computer lab, under the pretense of doing the school newspaper :P.

Well, I'm just posting the news because Mikako-shi is going to voice Mikako ٩( ᐖ )و ( ᐛ )و , her first time voicing a character that has the same name as her.

The ending of both anime are miles apart. In fact, not just miles apart, it's like heaven and hell apart.

One gives you hope. The other cuts off all hope.
Well, they should remake the anime and give it the real ending which wasn't bittersweet at all if you read the earlier forum posts.

*hipster mode on* all these kids these days saying Kimi no Na Wa and Byousoku are the best Makoto Shinkai movies probably haven't even heard Through the Years and Far Away.. they probably don't even know who TENMON is.. *hipster mode off*

but for real, this is my favorite Shinkai work, and its soundtrack is probably the best of all his releases.

REAL Shinkai-domo <strike>stalkers</strike> fans think Haru no Ashioto is one of his best works (with a TENMON soundtrack too, of course). It's the short he did to advertise a harem eroge from Minori -- anyone who watches it realises he recycled a lot of it for the core plot of Kimi No Na Wa. Don't mistake it for the OVA of the same name, that just used some of the characters from the game in a separate story with no Shinkai magic.
