    A Garden of Words without Words
    The main thing that needs to be understood about this movie, and the overall production of it is that the true storytelling is not merely within the long winded monologues that occur throughout the movie. Let me explain:
    The story follows that of a high school student who always goes to this park when it rains, skipping his first classes of the day. One day, it was raining, and he came across a ...

    Stunning, beautiful, moving!
    Probably one of the best done anime movies out there. The story is really moving and the art is beyond stunning. You are not doing it right as an anime watcher if you haven't seen this. Just get ready for all the feels I'd recommend it a hundred times over.

    Absolutely stunning
    If not for the story, the art is just so good that you'll be missing a lot if u skipped this movie. I'm not saying the story is not good by any means because it is.IN few words, the movie revolves around these two characters who meet at the same spot whenever it rains. Do your self a favor and watch it.

    There are no words for this movie.
    First of all, the art and animation of this movie is one of a kind. It is the best I have ever seen. The graphics are even better than real life. The plot itself is also great, as well as the soundtrack. Despite being only about 40 minutes long, this movie is able to evoke a multitude of emotions from the viewer. Overall, The Garden of Words is a breathtaking movie that still keeps me in awe every ...

    An amazing must watch firm
    The movie was done well. The art style, animation, storytelling, characters, etc. This firm is a must watch. The message it conveys really hits home. I feel like this movie should be watched after 5cm/s and Your Name just because IMO the ending was in a way sad like 5cm/s but also happy like Your Name at the same time. I definitely recommend reading the manga as well (available to purchase on ...

    Visually astounding!
    First of all, the animation is simply amazing. That's all I'll say on that. The music is also wonderful. In fact, this has one of the best soundtracks I've heard from an anime! Now some people may be turned off by the fact that it's a 17 year-old school boy and a teacher that fall in love, but honestly it's handled in a way that doesn't make it feel creepy at all. It just feels like two hurting ...

    More than words.....
    It's rare to find someone you genuinely like spending time with. Where words are not needed. Simply their company makes you content. I envy these two and their quiet time enjoying each other and the rain. With the fast pace of life these days sometimes it's simple moments like these that are most memorable and endearing.

    Beautiful artwork and animation. Some of which is recycled a bit to keep ...

    Masterpiece of animation
    The animation in this film is some of the best I have ever seen in terms of photo-realism. Most of the story takes place outside in the rain and the water effects are beautiful. I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the story's main message, but if you have patience and like watching stunning animation you must watch this movie. Just don't expect too much in terms of depth of story.

  • A Garden of Words Indeed
    The way it's story told. Such perfect combinations of art, music, and poems. The life of two lonely civil humans who, by fate, are given the chance to fill each other's void. Their story begins at the first drop of a rain, followed by a rainbow as a bridge to wonders.

  • The first steps to a great Anime movie.
    The garden of words is a movie that displays the vicious production quality Makoto Shinkai is capable of dishing out. This movie displays one of the highest quality of animation ever to be achieved in 2D format. While some scenes were definitely made with the aid of 3D rendering, there are scenes that are clearly animated by hand despite the insane quality and frame rate those animations were ...
