Plot Summary


The "story of miracles and love" revolves around Mitsuha and Taki. Mitsuha is a female high school student who lives in a rural town nestled deep in the mountains. Her father is the mayor and isn't at home much, and she lives with her elementary school-aged little sister and her grandmother. Mitsuha has an honest personality, but she doesn't like the customs of her family's Shinto shrine, nor does she like her father participating in an election campaign. She laments that she lives in a confined rural town, and yearns for the wonderful lifestyle of living in Tokyo. Taki is a male high school student who lives in central Tokyo. He spends time with his friends, works part-time at an Italian restaurant, and is interested in architecture and fine arts. One day, Mitsuha has a dream where she is a young man. Taki also has a dream where he is a female high school student in a town in the mountains that he has never been to. What is the secret to their dreams of personal experience?

First Glance: 5 Centimeters per second?!?
Second Glance: Oh same director, no wonder it looked the same.

Trailer reaction: That looks fucking beautiful. Looking forward to it.

Why don't these stories end well?

I don't know why, but with that supernatural element, my first instinct was Glasslip 2.0, but with actual plot, and not terrible. I'll watch the trailer later and see how accurate that is.

Shinkai doesn't really do "happy endings" for the most part. They aren't actually tragic, just realistic in terms of human relationships. They usually do leave you with a lump in your throat though. Don't watch them if tears give you cancer, I guess... But nothing else compares to them.

Some new visuals of this movie were just posted so I'm excited about this movie again!!

(I'm reluctant to post them because I can't find a reliable source for the images and they're not up on the official site yet.)

Yes! It's official now! :'D
Earlier the only source I had was a tweet and a link to a Chinese website so I didn't want to jump the gun!

I don't know if anyone has thought of this already, but no one's posted it yet so!! I'm positive that this new film is inspired by a commercial Makoto Shinkai previously worked on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfbNS_GKhPw (okay to post because it's the official source before anyone asks) I'm just super excited for this because I've always wanted some anime adaptation of those characters when I saw the commercial for the first time and I'm just so happy it's finally happening!!

August 26th, yes.

Yaaaaaaaaaaas. That Radwimps music is wonderful as well.

Hmm. So they're like astral projecting into each other's bodies? At least that's what it seems to imply. Was not expecting that! Seems like it'll be a little sillier than Makoto Shinkai's other films but probably still with a meaningful life lesson.
