Just a small post while I’m trying to get through some of the animes of the new season and write about it.
Fellow Danny Choo user Laz Long who started a Makoto Shinkai Fan Forum will be holding a “Global Sinkai Day” which starts on February 27 and lasts till the 28th. A 24 hour extravaganza in appreciation of all things Makoto Shinkai. If you want more details you can search through the forums for the thread or click this. There are many things to be done and many people to enjoy the day with.
I personally am a BIG fan of Makoto Shinkai. Every time I see one of his films I am just blown away by the artistry and story. I know a lot of my friends loved 5 Centimeters per Second but hated the ending. I think they just didn’t want to accept the reality of it. Not saying it didn’t irk me too but when I thought about where Shinkai was coming from it I accepted it a bit more. Very excited to see what his next work will be like and if it has a happy ending it will blow minds (though it’s not his style).
So spread the word about Global Shinkai Day 2009 with you friends, family, and internet buddies. I know I will be.
