I honestly despise the idea that a bunch of people who have never heard Shinkai's name before is jumping on the train that he's the "next Miyazaki". Unlike Shinkai, Miyazaki has much more consistently good (except maybe when it comes to endings). Even early Miyazaki was great. I remember a time when I loved the Lupin '71 series over the others before I ever knew he was connected with it.

I'll admit I haven't seen KnNw yet and of course won't say that the movie isn't actually good, but to me it still feels more like Shinkai got lucky.

Cameron Morris
Cameron Morris

The claim that he could be the next Miyazaki is nothing new. Shinkai has been a name to follow ever since Hoshi no Koe (2002). And let's face it, no other anime director creates films with the same wide appeal as Miyazaki. The BBC article is right on that account.

People already got their eyes set on Shinkai back way before Kimi no Na Wa, and not just because he's the 'next Miyazaki'. Shinkai is his own thing.

For actual sauce, this article is released April this year in the Electronic Journal of Contemporary Japanese Studies, way before anyone predicted Your Name's success

I feel like they might take too long to put them out and the hype might die by then.
Even if it's a year down the line, they really should start pushing out BD pre-orders so they can hook people and keep them hook through the whole year. It's a huge hit, obviously, but still seems like a silly move to hold out on presenting the BDs.

Ryan Myers
Ryan Myers

I watched in theatre and let me tell you, it's wonderful and definitely the best of Shinkai so far. And your reference to 5cm pretty much confirms that you're either ignorant as fuck or just have no idea what you're talking about, or even both, since Your Name and 5cm hardly have any similarity to begin with. Just stop shitposting unless you want to keep embarrassing yourself

Nathan Sanders
Nathan Sanders

Kimi no na Wa manages to hit some elements of Miyazaki's mainstream appeal that Shinkai's other movies do not. While Shinkai has always been adored for his visuals and subtle storytelling, Your Name combines it with the whimsy and expressive character animation that made Miyazaki so famous in the first place. They are very different directors, but this movie isn't exactly Shinkai's norm.

Let's face it - Garden of Words and 5cm Per Second were beautiful, but boring. They lacked a strong central plot. You can't say that about Your Name.

Carson Nguyen

I kind of get it. If this movie makes it big internationally, we might be seeing more anime movies blowing up in the US without the need for the Ghibli label.

Connor Morris

I actually think girls in their early twenties are better looking than girls in their late teens. They have been more aquainted with their body so it looks better, they work more out and they learn how to apply make up. As long as they haven't become fat, they're usually more attractive.

Trust me, I'm a master of ephebophilia.

If you can't even suss out that most of his movies revolve around gaudy relationship drama aka "romance", it's no wonder you think Kimi No Na is "wonderful". For the rest of us who aren't swayed merely by visuals, the character and plot development is always woefully lacking in his works.

You still haven't stated a single convincing proof that you've really watched the movie and hence know what you're talking about. But then again, Your Name is definitely the best of Shinkai and he's excelled his past works with this one. For that development things you mentioned; well he could've done better for character development part but it's by no means 'woefully lacking', and plot development is absolutely thrilling and well executed

No they were too adult for people to care about, specially Japan. Your Name is pandering hard to normalfaggots like most of Miyazaki stuff did (well aside from TWR and Mononoke). Still it has a lot of things I expect in a Shinkai movies and that's great, people need to shown his style. You know best career move for Shinkai would be to make his next movie even more accessible now that he has Japan's attention.

They probably leaked a DVD screener on purpose to avoid a camrip version getting loose. It's worked pretty well, getting #1 on MAL and making people shill the movie.

A camrip would've ruined the whole experience, and you'd still want to watch the BD after watching the DVD screener, so win win I guess.

Those are late night anime. You might notice idolshit aside it's been trending down. Anime kind of needed a new hit as a wakeup call that wasn't some money making scheme by some corporation like IdolGundai or Lightnovelplex.

I'm pretty certain you're the most retarded person on this board. You critizise a movie you haven't even watched, you spoil yourself with the plot, and you make a decision that it's bad without even having watching it, saying that it's just like a 12 year old movie the director made. You should seek help.

Are you really implying that Shinkai's movie is one made from「PASSION」 and「LOVE」?

It's better than a camrip. There's another version which is deinterlaced, but you can turn it on manually.

It's much better than a camrip, and the sound is pretty good.

Yup. I downloaded the one without too, but it had worse video quality. The megaupload was taken down, so I don't know where you can find it now.

I don't know why you'd bother to be honest. The best things about this film are going to be the art and animation. More worth waiting for than anything else. The story isn't something you REALLY need to see, its just going to be another generic shitty Shinkai story. The joy is going to be in looking at it if anywhere so why degrade that.

So if this movie made ¥10 Billion 9 days faster than Frozen, what are the odds of Kimi no Na wa. surpassing Frozen's total box office gross of ¥25.48 Billion in the Japanese box office?

Also Titanic is still in 2nd with ¥26.20 Billion with Spirited Away in 1st with ¥30.40 Billion. I doubt it'll beat Spirited Away, but could it possibly also beat Titanic?
