/a/, how can happiness exist when this movie exists?
I mean, Jesus Christ, man. The male protag made me so FUCKING angry I couldn't even describe.
>expecting proper characterization from a Shinkai film
How does Shinkai draw so well?
Why are all his works blurry pieces of shit in wallpaper form?
> implying shinkai drew even 1% of the art
I don't think you understand how anime, especially huge productions like movies work. Shinkai was merely the director. He most likely only drew the storyboards. The actual art is done by wage-slave monkeys and nowadays is outsourced to korea.
as to why they're so good, the film had good art direction. Shinkai does deserve credit for that. I also hear he takes tons of reference pictures and research.
