5 Centimeters per Second

Makoto Shinkai Walker Book

It's been a while since Makoto Shinkai released his first art book, "A Sky Longing for Memories" (which you can get an English copy of by Vertical Comics). Now he's released a new one at around the same time as his latest youth movie, "Your Name" and it's a B2 sized, 160 page book subtitled "Walker: Hikari no Kiseki [Trails of Light]". The...


5 Centimetres Per Second Novel English Translation Completed

Finally got round to picking up the half done translation. Pretty hard to believe it's been two years since then. Time flies, eh? If I wasn't a software developer myself it would have been quite tricky translating all the parts about programming. Other than the finished translation, you'll also find I've added Shinkai's Twitter feed...


5 Centimetres Per Second One More Side Novel

Thanks goes to FallingStar for tweeting to me about this! I must have missed Shinkai's tweet about this somehow! It's been over 4 years since 5 Centimetres Per Second premièred in Japan and since then, it's been novelised and manganised. Now it's getting another novel, subtitled "One More Side" - But it's not a sequel. The original 5cm...

As you'll no doubt already know, a new production blog is up and running for Shinkai's next movie. But while we're waiting for the official site to be up with more details, here's the next part of the novel translated in English, "Cosmonaut" which is told from Kanae's perspective. The water dazzled under the rising sun just above the...


A New 5 Centimetres Per Second Site, Novel English Translation

I'm sure regular visitors amongst you will know how much of a fan I am of Makoto Shinkai's 5 Centimetres Per Second by now. After looking through how much information I've gathered about the movie, I thought this blog wasn't giving it enough space to organise so I've decided to create a sub-site for it to have all the content accessible in...


Makoto Shinkai x Tenmon 10th Anniversary Orchestral Album

Been a while since I last posted anything about Makoto Shinkai. Thanks to Daike-san, who has been too busy with work lately to update his fansite, for letting me know about this upcoming orchestral CD. To commemorate Anime director Makoto Shinkai and musician Tenmon's collaboration for the past ten years, an orchestral image album...


5 Centimeters per Second Gets A Reference in TVB's Sakura Memories

I was just watching the Chinese Channel this evening when episode one of a holiday programme about Japan named 樱红醉了 came on. I think the Chinese name "ying hung zeoi liu" is a pun for "The Drunken Hero" but the English name is "Sakura Memories". Anyway, the narrator and actress Niki Chow was suddenly talking about how cherry blossoms...


Global Shinkai Day Comes to An End

And so, Global Shinkai Day has come to an end. I literally stayed up overnight until Saturday morning at six for the first session, slept for the second then stayed for the others. The number of attendees started off pretty well. It mostly floated between the 10 to 15 people mark for the day but peaked to just over 21 while Promised Days was...
