The official site for Shinkai's forth movie isn't ready yet but production of the final movie is under way. He has also joined Twitter (in Japanese of course) and started a new production blog to keep track of the progress. He already has over 1000 followers at the time of writing.

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...


First Images for Makoto Shinkai's Fourth Movie ::

It's just pass Christmas Eve and Makoto Shinkai has decided to reveal some art from an early image board of his fourth feature length movie. What great news before the New Year, eh?

He gets pretty tired out just thinking about all...


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...


The 1st Global Makoto Shinkai Day

Just when I was reading over Kazuma Kaneko's thoughts about the "powers" of the internet and how it compares with the "spiritual world" I came across this... Looks like fans from all over the world will be gathering together at the Makoto Shinkai English Fan Forum this weekend to chat with each other while watching his movies. If you...


Makoto Shinkai Is Alive and Still In London

It's only been two months since Makoto Shinkai wrote about how he was doing on his website but apparently, fans have been worried and have been writing emails asking him along the lines of, "Are you alive?" In response, he has literally written on his site that he is alive and well and thanks all concerned. On the other hand, ever since...
