    Makoto Shinkai

    I'm big fan of Makoto's movie Beyond the clouds(place promised in our early days)
    so i'm wondering is here anyone else who is also a fan.

    Beyond the clouds was far as I know made with every small crew and
    using only computer. And storyline in really nice and you can really watch it
    four times without getting bored.

    If someone knows any other OVA's or movies made by Makoto Shinkai-sama
    please let me know.


    Love hurts...trust me I know, I really do...

    His works are alright, the big highlights of his works are the obvious high quality art and animation done by his Mac.

    Other works hes done are Voices of a Distant Star the one where he got famous for, She and Her Cat. You can look up his name on animenewsnetwork. As of now he is working on his new anime, "Other Voices"? Well i don't understand enough Japanese to be certain that it is his new anime's name. heres the site http://www2.odn.ne.jp/~ccs50140/short/index.html

    I think this is outdated but oh well,
    Currently, we are in the middle of production of a new animation due to be released in this year of 2006 (Right now, we have yet to decide the name of this film.) The story will be made up of three completely independent short works (all of which will be 10-some od or some od-10s of minutes) all connected solely by the main character, who will be axle for all of this. When all of them are combined together, it will make a film that's more or less 60 minutes long.

    The setting for this film will be the urban regions and cities of Japan. It will be a story of how the main characters live in such places and the transitions that happen within their hearts. Personally, I strongly believe that this will be a story that's needed not only for myself, but also my co-workers as well as all of the guests who have the desire to watch this and so I continue its production even now.

    So that we can truly, fully express our meaning behind these stories, all of the staff will carefully work to draw out and put together their best artwork for this film. Please continue to be excited and wait for future follow-up reports to come.

    Also please continue to stay tuned to our website, as we will also be translating the follow-up reports as they are released. Thanks and see you again soon!

    Oh my, I loved Voices of a Distant Star, it's a true classic, in my opinion. But, I haven't seen his other work entitled as The Place Promised in our Early Days, which is the one you mentioned NightFox ^^, but I will surely watch it since you said that it was great. Oh yeah, he also made one called as Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko, which means She and Her Cat, but it is very short in length, though. Still, it's worth to know about it since you are his fan like meself.
