Is it more than just really pretty Sup Forums, or was it actually a good realistic story?
How many friends from your childhood do you even remember?
All of them, I never had that many.
Shinkai's Keit-ai is way better.
Only one person.
It has a clear message and several themes it explores with some depth, so yeah it's more than just visuals.
Threadly reminder that you should stop posting that because it's a thing.
It's just a pretty visual, no man's butthurt about puppy love that long unless you're an ultra beta.
Do people really think any Shinkai movies are good in terms of story?
It's just sappy melancholic shit every time.
I can't stand them past the visuals.
wasn't it literally 2 kids fall for each other but either the boy or girl has to move to another city because of their parents, then when they grow up the boy moves on but never fully moves on because he will never love someone the same again, then he sees her one day on the street when they're adults and he loses sight of her then just lets her go?
like wasn't that literally the entire plot with just pointless dialogue and visuals inbetween??
That's like condensing Romeo and Juliet into two kids fall for each other and move apart because of their parents only for them to die at the end. Everything else is pointless dialogue.
Come on user, it was obvious how he was holding onto his childhood love and she was holding onto him but the differences just couldn't keep them together.
the pair die at the end, it makes the buildup worth it
in this case it's just kids fall in love, struggle to move on, then move on. if you replace the last move on with both die together it makes it all worthwhile, especially when they're from families that hate and want to wage war against each other so shut the fuck up faggot, it's shit
because it has death and war it makes it better
Don't give him any ideas.
Shinkai is the definition of a hack. He can only do one thing and he does that thing badly, unless you consider making cheesy, pretentious melodramas about teenager love or whatever good.
The only thing he's good at is making really nice wallpapers.
He can only do one thing
I don't know, being a 1 man studio is pretty impressive even if he can only do one kind of movie.
So, he actually looks like a beta faggot, no wonder all his work is all about butthurt boredom.
haha, epic!! you should post it on reddit as well!
I liked Kotonoha no Niwa because it has a 10/10 cake that actually won in the end.
Why is this still a thing?
