Como cuando intentas hacer parecer a fetiches como amor. Quien dirigió esto? Dan Schneider? ¿Cual es la manía de Shinkai por hacer historias de amor con cosas tan degeneradas y en situaciones tan risibles? La película va sobre dos personajes que se encuentran en un parque y se van enamorando el uno del otro. Y uno de ellos le gusta diseñar zapatos. La chica pues, no sé, su única caracterís... read more

Just remember the technical brilliance of '5 Centimeters Per Second', the same director who curved this movie as well. So the expectation usually will be high for anyone who watched this filmmakers earlier movies. The movie was too short, not even it crosses an hour mark, but only a just below the 50 minutes.

Not only the filmmaker, but title as well impressed me. You know 'The Secr... read more

Uma das características que desprezo nos animes modernos é que em geral são mundanos, estáticos, sem tensão, infantis, idealistas e uma série de anti-valores com os quais eu poderia discorrer bastante sobre já que querendo ou não esses aspectos refletem o estado mental de uma geração, é pela arte que conseguimos traçar um perfil psicológico de toda uma época.

Tomem os animes antigos por exemplo, possuíam inicialmente uma visão otimista da tecnologia que em parte representava a visão japonesa como um país derrotado na segunda guerra mundial e que poderia se superar através da tecnologia, ao passo que em épocas posteriores essa visão foi substituída por outra mais pessimista em relação a tecnologia, obras como Ghost in the Shell ou Akira expressam com exatidão esse s” read more

" Date: 3/27/2022 Viewed: Youtube First viewing Note: I like Makoto Shinkai's films a lot, but I haven't seen them all yet. I'd heard about this film for a long time and finally had the opportunity to watch it on YouTube. The Garden of Words isn't Shinkai's best film, but it's still a good movie in my opinion. The animation is spectacular, as it is in all of Makoto Shinkai's films. The incredible amount of detail in the animation is truly astounding. The rain and the background are almost rea"

"I've seen gifs and screenshots of The Garden of Words pretty often, because the beauty of the animation is deservedly praised to high heaven. Things like raindrops, pencils sketching on paper, leaves rustling on trees, phones glowing with an alarm, are all staggeringly pretty. The short 40min runtime allowed for some really focused animation work, which I appreciated. The story itself took me a little bit by surprise. It was somewhat uncomfortable, but my girlfriend mused later that this was ma"

“Como cuando intentas hacer parecer a fetiches como amor. Quien dirigió esto? Dan Schneider? ¿Cual es la manía de Shinkai por hacer historias de amor con cosas tan degeneradas y en situaciones tan risibles?

La película va sobre dos personajes que se encuentran en un parque y se van enamorando el uno del otro. Y uno de ellos le gusta diseñar zapatos. La chica pues, no sé, su única característica es que la cámara muestra sus pies en distintos planos. Sí, así se podría resumir este bodrio. Una excusa para normalizar fetiches mientras metes un drama de telenovela mexicana en medio para que no sea solo un hentai.

Los personajes solo interactuan y punto. No conocemos nada de ellos salvo que uno quiere ser zapateros. Literalmente no tienen razón para enamorarse, de” read more

"Another classic anime by Makoto Shinkai. It is superb in every way. The story is about 2 lonely souls finding solace in each other through a chance meeting at Tokyo's Shinjuku Gyoen when it rained and then seeing each other regularly at the same location. There is some controversy about the story as the 2 people are a 15 year old boy Takao and a 27 year old female teacher Yukino (she teaches at the same school as him). No need to worry as everything is done tastefully and there's no hint that an"
