SLA 2019 - Tenki no Ko, Weathering with You Review

Haven't been to a Scotland Loves Animation for several years now but kept an eye out for Weathering with You this year since the disc release is probably still a long way off.

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

20th June 2013 Update: The site has now been taken down but you may still read the translations and the rest of the site content in PDF here. 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...
