My thoughts on Kotonoha No Niwa

So a brief intro for those who are confused

The Garden of Words is the latest anime movie directed by Makoto Shinkai famous for the ever popular Features 5 CM Per Second, Voices of a Distant Star and The Place Promised in our Early Days (my favorite from Shinkai)

the plot is as follows”15-years-old Takao Akizuki, who is training to become a shoemaker, skipped school and is sketching shoes in a Japanese-style garden. He meets a mysterious 27-years-old woman, Yukari Yukino, who spends her time drinking beer and eating chocolate. Then, without arranging the times, the two start to see each other again and again, but only on rainy days” taken from wikipedia

so now on to my thoughts.Kotonoha No Niwa is a very moving story combined with a Beautiful art style and a great musical score. due to the plot there aren’t many different backgrounds but each setting is beautifully drawn to the point where i almost wish i could be there right now (if it wasn’t for all that rain at least)

shortly into the story i found myself recognising a lot of the themes and features Shinkai uses in his films, this turned out to be very refreshing and i am sure that due to this the film will be another great success for him

overall i would give the film a 8/10Β  and a must watch for any audience

since i have been speaking to a lot of guys trying to get there girlfriends into Anime recently i will also add that this or any other of Makoto Shinkai’s works would be a great watch for those romantic nights together

so go buy it (if or when possible) and watch it, i wont forgive you if you dont
