Makoto shinkai has been the art director for some galge and there's an anime created for one of the games called ef- a tale of memories. But the story is not by him although the visuals are. Info for those who might be interested.

I'm starting to think that Makoto Shinkai! is the next Myazaki-level creator in Anime. His works are phenominal.

I wouldn't go that far.

I would say though that Makoto Shinkai is helping to bring back into focus how simply "awe inspiring" basic slice-of-life movies should be. The individual parts of a movie all blend into something powerful without being powerful, just touching and striking at the emotional core of humanity. Not some over blown warning driven movie with a personal agenda to drive you into a political stance, but driven enough that it makes you want to care again.

But just like Kong, Makoto focus's on one thing and one thing only.

Knowing Miyazaki's retirement is inevitable, the Japanese media has been desperately looking for another animation God. They have compared Shinkai to Miyazaki many times, but Shinkai himself has kindly declined the compliment.

Personally I think Miyazaki has done more to the anime industry than just producing brilliant films. There is simply no Miyazaki No.2.

However, Shinkai is in a league of its own as an independent director. I really hope he can set up his own studio, finding the right staff and sufficient resources to pursuit his own kind of animation.

Shinkai needs to come up with a few more feature length success to earn his place. 5cm/sec is really the first Shinkai's film that I love 100%. I liked the Voice of Distance Star but the mecha animation was rather sub-par due to limited resources. "The Place Promised In Our Early Days" was visually stunning but at times I felt the dialog didn't work that well in a full-length feature film.

Shinkai's unique style (dialog vs imagery) is very effective in short films. So I like to see how Shinkai would evolve in his next full length feature.

I first saw that scene and I thought ''god thats what heaven looks like ''

That scene is just a dream or a fantasy of truth.

Almost a pity that real-life sunsets, train tracks, beaches and night skies don't look as beautiful eh?

The site has pictures of the real locations used in the movie but it doesn't have the side by side comparisons that i've seen before somewhere on the web.

I know exactly what you mean wolfx, I been to europe and saw the the most exotic sunsets, clouds, and beaches and all I had to say was "is that all you got god".

After I saw the comparison pics, I just wanted to send this guy pics of my life and see what he can do, lol.
