>that ending

Never raged so hard in my life.
Why didn't he go after her?

What the fuck? Fucking faggot.
>>
>>101139153
ONE MORE TIME, ONE MORE CHANCE
>>
Why didn't he just call her?
Why would he choose that shitty life when he could find her again?
>>
That ending never made sense to me. The train only passed her for like, 10 seconds, and she suddenly disappeared.

Did she run or something? Even then, he should've seen her.
>>
This movie is shit. It was not deep, it was not emotionally engaging, it was just boring, trite, shit.
>>
>>101139254
If anything I don't think the girl is actually there, it's just a symbolism of how Takaki can finally let go of his past.
>>
>>101139328
>What is symbolism?
I like the movie, but faggots like OP are ruining it.
>>
The point is he is content with letting her go. She has her own life now.
>>
>>101139328
Agreed.
There are tons of people who loved it for some reason though.
>>
>>101139328
The only thing that really struck me about the movie was the ending.

Everything else about the film I mostly forgot.
>>
>>101139352
This is the reading I like.
It doesn't matter whether or not the girl was there. It's just closure.
>>
>>101139352
They do actually meet (Asuna is getting married), but they both accept that their chance has passed.

What's there to understand? The MC and her barely know each other anymore, each with entirely different lives. She moved on with her life, and the ending is that he could finally move on too.

he should have fucked her at least.

I wish I could punch characters through my screen.

You should read the mini-light novel. It gives tons of information about the years and years of fucked up relationships he had and how him letting go was actually a good thing.

He learned life goes on
>>
>>101139650
In my opinion, it's simply for old times sake. She's already married/engaged in a relationship IIRC and meeting him would simply be like meeting an childhood ex-boyfriend.
>>
Takaki waiting for the train to pass at the end symbolizes he waited for her, but her not being there symbolizes she moved on and doesn't consider him a part of her life anymore.

Moral of the story: don't trust whores
>>
>>101139830
Definitely the moral I got out of it.
>>
>>101139736


Basically its a letter that the childhood friend wrote to the MC and never gave to him. She finds it many years later and reads it and you also get to see the one he wrote her.


Shit is pretty fucking sad.
>>
>>101139830
Yep, and at the other hand the whore doesn't have ANY issues ''moving on'' from their love. This just proves the fact that women are not sentient beings and are basically nothing more than sluts.

The MC was just an idiot who couldn't enjoy life. He should either have moved on or tried to see her. He doing nothing just means he's stupid.

I can't help it that I was born attractive and with passable social skills. I'm much more dedicated than you because I'm like this by choice. It's not by choice for you. I had girlfriends when I was young and stupid and didn't know any better. I have a girl I live with that supports my NEET lifestyle. I could have sex with her anytime I wanted. But I don't because sex is gross. You neckbeards would probably throw yourselves at the first 3D that shown interest in you. You don't have the dedication that I do.

This isn't about that, OP. It's nothing that concrete. I think he was just never satisfied with anything in his life, because he missed that chance. More than anything else he couldn't let it go because it was outside circumstances that killed it, he never made the choice to move on. In the end he just realizes he has to, because you can't go chase a married childhood friend and you can't waste your whole life thinking about it either. The world in this anime is pretty firmly grounded in the workings of real life.

Great movie, surfer girl was best girl.
When I watched it for the first time I was about to finish school and it really captured my mood and feelings at this time. Would even say it helped me through.

Oh definitely. If you aren't an obsessive antisocial person then you don't really understand the MC.

That's impossible if you have nothing going on in your life.
If your life is very passive and you have no motivation or goal, your regrets will torment you day and night.
>>
>>101141758
your regrets are tying you down, because you're constantly reminding yourself of previous failings instead of getting on with life

regrets shouldn't be painful, or plentiful

there's no point getting caught up in what should/could/might have happened in the past, when you have the rest of your life to experience

or to put it another way - your anger at your own past only hurts you, it doesn't actually serve any purpose other than to prevent you living your life and exposing yourself to future pain

>>101141795

this anon gets it

you don't have to regret your past, the only person who wants you to hold on to those regrets is you
>>
>>101141876
the problem there is in the mindset

acting as though that's the inevitable outcome until some hither-to unseen outside force explodes your life open and fixes everything for you

that won't happen

that's not how life works

if your life is empty, you're the only person who can fill it

try instead looking at it from a perspective of ambition and action, as opposed to passivity and victimhood

It was, and I couldn't really figure why.
I guess it's symbolism about how the world and humanity is evolving and growing, while MC is still checking his phone, not growing.

>>101142048
The way this scene captured the basic idea of the anime (physical & emotional distance between people and the effort put into reaching someone) really resonated with me. Sumidas narration afterwards is just spot-on.
>>
>>101142141
Dude, it's even explained during the voice over.
Humans are far away from each other, sometimes geographically, sometimes emotionally.
Still we feel the need to reach out to another person, to truly be close to him or her.
The rocket is a symbol of this desperate need to overcome this vast distance, to aim for a distant star impossibly far away while all we might see now is their dead light of yesterday.

I love watching all the deepshitters make stuff up. The authors could just do a story with no intended symbolism or deep meanings and you would still go out of your way to come up with your shitty theories of how an empty glass in the background symbolizes loneliness. Pulling shit like this out of your ass also allows you to feel intellectually superior to the plebs who don't see this masterpiece for what it is, even though you are actually retarded. If you hear someone call themselves "artistically refined" then you instantly know they are full of shit.

I was in a situation similar to Surfer-chan's a short time after watching the anime, and did confess. Probably that's why the Cosmonaut episode is my favourite one. I was turned down eventually, but at least I hadn't any regrets afterwards.

Anything else from Makoto Shinkai thats good? 5 c/m was great and I also liked Voices of a Distant Star while not as good as 5 c/m I have mad respect just for all the fucking work he put into that movie.

By all accounts it's unreasonable, yet we are driven by passion and not reason. It's why you can't "reason" yourself out of feelings of revenge. With sufficient training and growth you can suppress it, but even philosophers who put forth the idea of Freigeist or the pure pleasure from knowledge or self-mastery don't manage this until they hit old age, if ever. You can tell in their writing that they are still bitter as fuck. You could be a stoic or a Buddhist but all these measures are taken post-hoc and is compensation.
Also the pain from regret only comes if it reflects on your present situation, it's not a source of suffering in itself. It's the justification, not the cause.

You talk about ambition when most times these goals are something that exists only in fantasy (especially if you watch a lot of anime and are very imaginative), or something that won't even bring you fulfillment and was just a conviction that your forced yourself to stick with.
You need to know what you're chasing before chasing it, and therein the problem lies.
No one knows what they should be chasing.

Anybody else think it's a great movie but hate it anyway because it makes you sad as all fuck? It's not that it strikes a cord with me, I'm fairly content but I am crazy empathetic. Spending a third of the movie showing how much they care for each other then spending the rest showing how they can't be together and it's killing the dude inside AND that fucks over the Surfer chick just fucking kills me.

I know it's a good ending but moving on from a shitty situation doesn't make it any less shit.

Also, whoever posted the letters from the LN, I'm going to find you and drown you in my tears you cock.

Because sad deep tragic romance.

Fuck 'em. If a character's response to seemingly inevitable tragedy is "it can't be helped" or "let's simply enjoy the time we have together" rather than fighting with everything they have to fix it, fuck 'em. They don't deserve to be happy.

This always gets me. It's like a song for introspection. The point where you see the parallelisms between the story in the movie and your own story. You may not have been stuck in a train due to a snowstorm or seen a rocket take off, but you know there's someone whom you've loved for so long and can't forget about so easily.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was awesome scenery porn (like the rest of his works), and it was a more realistic relationship that most anime have. Life isn't all sunshine and rainbows, and there isn't always the guy getting the girl ending. Deal with it.
>>
>>101143187
>Even if you're friends, there still needs to be that point where you tell then the way you really feel and ask them out.
not really

if you can't understand how a girl feels without having to have her say "I really like you let's date" then you probably won't make it
>>
>>101143274
you're trying awfully hard to ignore everything that's happened and maintain your ego

I think they call it damage control round here
>>
>>101143223
The point at which the confession happens in a relationship depends on the age though. As people get older this point gets later in the relationship. Probably because when you're young you don't know that many ways to express your feelings. But yeah confessions should happen in every relationship.
>>
Voices of a distant star had such a simple, yet great premise, I say he should remake it with the full eye candy.
>>
>>101143081
More like modern world. Things still beautiful back then.
>>
>>101143293
You at least need to confirm those feelings. Most of the time, you can't just slowly transition from friends to dating without a single word being said.
>>
What a shit movie
>>
>>101143223
They are beautiful, but just confessing out the blue will only scare people away most of the time. A confession only strengthens a common bond, it is not really able to establish it. Before you confess, you have to spend time together, really get to know each other and get to the point where you feel that you're 'more than just friends'.
>>
>>101142896
Hey, tragedies exist for a reason. Not all things in life happen the way you want even if you fight the hardest you can for them.
>>
>>101143293
Why do people become more complacent and beta when they become adults then? Confessions are beautiful, and dancing around the point like you're describing pisses me off. Fucking tell them, lay it out there, and ask for their feelings. People screw eachother around too much in 3D.
>>
>>101143330


I don't know I probably wouldn't like it. One of the most awesome things about it is that Shinkai made that entire thing by himself so I'm not sure how I would feel about a remake.
>>
>>101143371
obviously not

it's not like you just lock gazes and magnetize toward each other, parts mingling, and suddenly RELATIONSHIPS

but if you're friendzoned it's for a reason, and if there's a mutual attraction it will just kinda happen, you won't sit there and one day come up with a brilliant plan to tell her how you feel and it will all go swimmingly

that's an escapist fantasy that doesn't really happen

if neither one is capable of communication then god help you

By fantasy, I mean things that you imagine in your head that don't exist anywhere in reality. You imagine a flowery and romantic relationship but in real life all you find is cruelty, vanity, and ugliness.
You picture an idyllic new city, but in reality it's beat-up and unfriendly.
I'm just saying to be wary of chasing something that doesn't exist.

>Don't let anyone else influence that decision.

That's obvious, nobody is saying otherwise.

>>101142953
What assumptions? Pessimistic how? Noticing that something is ugly or unpleasant isn't pessimism.
Yeah, I hate myself, but if you had read my post you'll see that's not the reason I'm not doing anything.

He went into damage control.
I called him on it.

Are you saying I was wrong when I corrected him because he knows my own opinion better then me or some shit? I'm really drawing a blank here.

they don't really

if they do, they're generally ignored, or get stuck with other people who are like that because the real grown ups don't want to deal with their issues for them

understanding body language, context, and taking action is not dancing around the point, that's growing up

But it's only natural to avoid too much attachment, especially in the early stages of a relationship. Even if you think that you really like someone or even love him/her. A confession consists of powerful words, aimed at binding people together. Take marriage for example, it's a thing people consider most carefully because it bears so much weight. But even in 'normal' relationships a lot of time is needed until you can truly say your confession out loud.
>>
>>101144153
you're a fucking wizard aren't you
>>
>>101144153
What about the two people who fuck before even confessing.
"How do you know you love him if you haven't even slept with him?" Is something I've heard too often, and it pisses me off. I think a declaration of your feelings is a much finer way than gradually deciding you like eachother after time. What is that early relationship, then? Casual "maybe I like him, I dunno."
Seems like a bullshit relationship to me, and is likely only a product of wanting a relationship because it's expected of you, not because you found someone that makes you doki doki.

>passion not reason
Yeah. We are literally biologically wired this way. Emotion is just an offshoot of the desire to seek pleasure and avoid displeasure. Intellect for a long time only served the former's goal. High intellect is a very recent thing and is certainly not a significant motivator in human decisions.

>revenge
Have someone really hurt you and try to reason out of it. You are being too quixotic, you can recognize suffering is unreasonable yet still feel it.
See: any break up, any death of a family member/friend, a tornado destroying your house, etc.

>goals, chasing
I should've used "I" instead of you and no one, but it felt too much like blogging.
By conviction I mean the following: you attend law school because in your youth you convinced yourself of it through seeing a lawyer on TV or something equally trivial, but midway through you realize it's not something you wanted and you only stuck with it because you were too scared to back out. I clarified fantasy earlier.
The chasing part is self-explanatory, it's exactly what it says.

You can't just say "get an ambition"
There has to be something you want first.
