It appears Makoto Shinkai has been busy traveling around the world as his latest movie, “Children Who Chase Voices from Deep Below” is being screened in various countries including Mainland China, Korea and now this month in Hong Kong. Comix Wave is really pushing his works to a wider international scale.
Don’t miss this opportunity if you’re nearby or can afford to travel there on time on August 27th. Check out the official Comic World HK site for more details.
And for the UK fans who missed the chance to meet him when he was in London, you can read a full transcript of the live interview that took place on my fansite.
新海誠8月27日會到香港Comic World首映他最新的作品”追逐繁星的孩子” (日文: 星を追う子ども). 新海誠迷注意!
“才是新海誠最新作品的正式中文名. 詳細請到Comic World的綱站.
Looks like they may have finally caught the man who has been throwing acid into the streets of Mong Kok from high buildings, one of the most busiest places in Hong Kong.
I just happened to be there the day before it happened once. Hope this is the real culprit and there are no more such attacks.
Got back to Glasgow seven in the morning. First thing you’ll probably notice is all the greenery here as you’re landing compared to in HK. Then once you get off the plane, you feel the cold biting in. I’d rather be in the heat than in the cold which appears to be what the majority of people on Everybody Votes seem to prefer too.
Time to catch up on Beast Player Erin, Kurokami and whatever else I’ve been missing! You’ll also find I’ve updated the Ngong Ping 360, Victoria Peak, Tsim Sha Tsui and Rural Area posts with short videos as I said I would. You’ll find a few of them here too in case you can’t be bothered running through those posts again. First time I’ve done video editing like this.
Well well, time flies. It’s almost time for me to return to the UK so this will probably be my last post before then.
If the urban surroundings of the “concrete forest” (as Hong Kong people refer to the high rise building surroundings) or tourist attractions don’t tempt you, you could always visit the rural areas where the shops are a little less modern looking and you’ll find some of the owners often putting out their edible goods to dry in the sun like on this chair.
Communication might be a problem though since a lot of the people can’t even speak broken English which is perhaps one of the reasons why you don’t see tourists around and neither are there bilingual menus.
Tsim Sha Tsui’s a place that I always visit at least once whenever I’m in Hong Kong on business. Probably because of the view there.
I carried the same mini tripod I used at The Peak so the pictures are fairly sharp but it’s hard capturing the shapes of all the bright neon light signs.
