Hi Everyone!

It’s less than a month away from the official U.S. release of one of the biggest animated films from 2016 - Your Name, which is finally coming to theaters on April 7, 2017, available in both sub and dub! Buy tickets here.

Makoto Shinkai, the director of Your Name, is known for his beautiful cinematography and heart-wrenching storytelling. To help you get a taste of the world of Shinkai, Crunchyroll is proud to present “Shinkai Weekend”! In collaboration with Funimation, starting from this week we will be bringing you new content and/or prizes leading up to the theatrical premiere of Your Name. So stay tuned for more info!

This week, we’re introducing you the four films directed by Makoto Shinkai that are available on Crunchyroll. More importantly, we’re releasing the high resolution (1080p) version of 5 Centimeters Per Second for limited time only. Enjoy!




1. Voices of a Distant Star
Available for members in the U.S. and U.S. Territories




It is 2046 when a mysterious alien force begins their annihilation of the human race. Leaving behind the one person she loves, Mikako joins the interstellar battle as a pilot. And so - while Mikako risks her life to save mankind - Noboru waits. At first days, then months, then years for each new message that will let him know whether Mikako is still alive. And, while she barely grows older in the timelessness of space, Noboru ages. The two lovers, worlds apart, desperately strive to remain connected as the gap between them widens at a frightening pace.

2. 5 Centimeters per Second
Available for members in the U.S. and U.S. Territories




Beginning with the lyrical image of cherry blossoms falling at five centimeters a second, Makoto Shinkai paints a breathtaking vivid tableau of young love, desire, loss, and hope. Told in three heartbreaking chapters, we follow the young dreamer Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, silence, and, finally, adult obligations and responsibility converge to crush the delicate petals of true love.


3. The Place Promised In Our Early Days
Available for members in the U.S. and U.S. Territories




In school, they were best friends. And they shared two passions: the plane they built together, christened Bela Cielo, and a girl, Sayuri. Oblivious to the tense environment, the three form an indelible bond and it seems nothing can ever come between them and their dream. The boys believe that someday they will reach the distant tower - and touch Sayuri's heart- however far away it may be.

4. She and Her Cat -Everything Flows-
Available for members worldwide except for Asia




Based on one of Makoto Shinkai's earlier works, She and Her Cat -Everything Flows- follows the life of a college student and her black cat.

I'm not able to watch online from Canada, so I'll just get a bottle of red wine and some bread and cheese, break out the Shinkai dvd's and have a Sakura viewing party of my own. I'll start with Voices of a Distant Star and end withThe Garden of Words. What better way to spend the weekend.

For those whining like little kids Sentai has not fully lost the license to a lot of those titles yet.
