Another great anime movie post on Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist. See title above.
I have to say, I am a massive Shinkai fan, and I’ve watched almost all of his stuff. This is definitely one of my favorites. A little light on the sci-fi/backstory side, but the characters and conflict (and animation) are top notch. Anyone who hasn’t should totally check this out. I also linked to the earlier 5 centimeters per second post in my hello post. It’s right down the page from here. Anyway, check out Pat’s post here: http://fantasyhotlist.blogspot.com/2009/10/place-promised-in-our-early-days.html
And don’t worry, I will not only talk about anime. I promise.
