Banzai for Makoto Shinkai

After 2 years of waiting, Makoto Shinkai finally announced his new work for another epic anime masterpiece in terms of gorgeous background and appreciation of the little things that all seemed well too pretty. That will definitely blow my mind away.

The News :

Makoto Shinkai, the auteur director behind Voices of a Distant Star and The Place Promised in Our Early Days, has confirmed his studio's next anime feature film and posted the initial imageboard art on Thursday. Even though the title and release date are still undecided, he assembled most of the main staff of his last film — 2007's 5 Centimeters Per Second — and the team is deeply immersed in production.
While Shinkai cannot reveal many details of the film's story, he did say that it is a "lively" animated film with adventure, action, romance, and a girl as the protagonist. The film will deal with loss like his previous feature films did, and it will also deal with how to survive that loss. According to Shinkai's personal website, the girl is heading on a journey to say, "Farewell."
Shinkai first outlined his next work during a surprise appearance at an Eminence Symphony Orchestra concert in Tokyo on Sunday. At the time, he said that the next film will be his longest animation film to date, and the story will revolve around one heroine, a cheerful and spirited girl.

Hopefully this will be another stunningly beautiful animated movie to satisfy visual quality engrossed viewers such as myself. I do expect the production team to do a better job this time. Distant Star was too short and has an awkward development sequence. The Place Promised in our Early Days is a nice movie, but the story gave me a little headache and confusion just understanding the occurrence step by step. You will need to watch it again to understand further what was going on. Last but not least, 5 Centimetres Per Second. The infamous film that spawned awe to many viewers. A good story since most of us will bound to understand the situation the characters been through as many experienced such feelings in life. The sad part however was Eps 3, it was too short and looks like an MV which it is. They could have lengthen it to another 20 minutes lol. The ending was executed in a decent style which I personally do not mind. Life is always unfair. You will never get what you want in life. Call it what you must. For me, this is how life goes on.
