Just watched this masterpiece
The second story hit waaay to close to home.
[spoilers]I was the girl who realized she could never make Touho or w/e happy.[/spoiler:lit]
Why is this never discussed on /a/?
Because Shinkai had already told the same story two times.
Also, nothing worth discussing. It's mentioned in every thread about good artstyle/scenery on anime.
Personally I want to punch the MC in the face.
God damn I think I just caught cancer from the retardation in my own post.
Takaki Tono is the guys name.
And [spoilers] dont work on /a/
It's always discussed
Maybe if you weren't such a flaming newfag you'd know
Spoilers work in you use them properly.
>Doesn't know how to use spoilers
It's not that >hard.
Yeah I figured that out thanks.
I'm a retard, and it's way too late at night for me to be posting anyways.
The MC did seem a bit beta in the end. He got almost too hung up on that one girl.
>Why is this never discussed on /a/?
We get one of these faggotry 'feels' threads at least once a month.
Lurk more comes to mind.
Because newfags who watch their furst deep anime movie tend to pick this (OR WHAT MOOT?!) so it's just >>>/v/ faggots who discuss it, which says itself, makes the threads shit-splurting like none other.
I personally like it though. The scenery, which Shinkai is known for, is stunning, and the stories hurts for everyone just as much. Blogging spoiler
I've never been in love like they are in that movie, but it still hurts to see it. Because it's possible to emphasize with both MC's, but for me, it's more the loneliness you feel from never having felt that kind of love that hurts the most.
I don't really know if anyone else has talked about this on /a/, but I love the symbolism in the movie.
Because Hoshi no Koe is the only thing Shinkai ever did good for anything more than scenery porn.
You have the two girls, the Akari, being the bird and Kanae the paper plane, can never reach Tohno, who is symbolized as the space-craft.
He is first the bird (flying with the bird that symbolizes Akari. The two birds fly together when they kiss, if I rememebr correctly), and then, in the second episode, he is the space-craft. And I love the moment when the space-craft leaves earth, because it means that Tohno is doomed to be alone, for eternity (or until the craft lands).
I love how the snow symbolizes how time seems to pass slowly when one least needs it (on the way to Akari, and when Tohno is soon overburdened with pain and loneliness. It also symbolized uncertainity and nervousness, as in, he did not know how to act when he met Akari again on the station, and he did not know what was going to happen when he reached the point of where he had to quit his job.
I loved how the trains and railroad (which Shinkai uses in almost all his movies) symbolizes that your life will lead you where it goes, and it goes there, you are not able to chance the way the tracks are going.
Sorry for rambling on and on in poort english, but I was fascinated when I discovered this after watching the movies a few times.
>last post in thread
This thread is almost as slow as the movie.
This was a pretty good movie although, I was expecting to cry the way everyone hyped it up. Still a very touching film and the music was on point.
I didn't really like that too much. The enitre mechashit was just bland, and honestly (this is my opinion though) mecha's are old, bleak and boring. The consept with messages taking time to reach the boyfriend back on earth was beautiful however, and that's what saved that short-film.
Sorry for my poor english, please don't hate me for it.
Another that i found really great just like this one is called: the place promised in our early days.
Did someone see it?
It's made by the same person.
I don't really think Shinkai should do more Sci-Fi, as I like his "SoL" movies better (he says himself he wants to make sci-fi though...).
But the music is great, the scenery is great. I didn't care much for the story, but that's a different matter.
oh, and if you didn't see above, he has another one called "Voices from a Distant Star" aswell, that some like.
And lastly if you're into his more fantasy-type movies, there's "Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below". This is one of my favourite anime-movies, and I recom-... think it's a good movie.
This sucked. art was good though for realzies
Try to click on the post you want to reply to, so we understand what you're talkinga bout.
Thanks for the info. I haven't seen voices from a distant star and childeren who chase lost voices from deep below. I think I will give them a try.
>caught cancer from my own post
>spoilers don't work on /a/
