It’s that time of the month again! And I’m running out of introductory speeches, so here are this week’s highlights without further ado.
#2: [newcomer] 【初音ミク】ラブアトミック・トランスファー【オリジナル曲】
According to Anime!Anime!, Shinkai Makoto appeared in an Animate concert of his image album “Promise”. He revealed draft concept of his new work. He said it will be the longest full scale anime movie he’s ever made and the main character is a cheerful girl, who plays an active part of the story. “We have been depicting the process of parting from a beloved person for the last ten years. Now we are trying to take one step ahead of it. If we get separated from our loves, how can we overcome the situation and what awaits after that? We tackle the question through the vivid girl character”.
According to Shinkai’s web diary, he set to work on the new movie last May mainly with the staff of 5 Centimeters per Second.
OMG! I’m already so excited about it! It sounds kind of like a sequel to Byousoku, though I’m sure when I watch it, it’ll feel like a totally new story in itself. With his excellent writing and directing skills, surreal plots relating to humans interaction and emotions, and top-notch animation quality, I’m looking forward to another masterpiece by one of the greatest anime directors ever.
