It's been a while since we heard Shinkai mention anything about his new piece of work. After taking a detour and spending some time in Greece before returning to his home in Nagano, he wrote yesterday (or technically the day before) that he has moved to a new apartment in Tokyo, Shinjuku. He gets pretty tired out just thinking about all that moving and the expenses since last year.
As for his "epic" new work, there is still nothing concrete that he can inform his readers but, he believes that he is working from the right point. It also looks like his staff will no longer have to work in his apartment because he's in the middle of setting up a separate studio.
For full translations of Shinkai's "blog" entries, drop by Daike-san's dedicated fansite.
So anyone care to guess what's on that screen? I can just make out the paint palettes ^^;
Too bad Shinkai's camera adjusted to the light in his room and not the screen. Looks like he's quite an Apple fan too.
