Makoto Shinkai is one of the most influential animation creators in the contemporary anime industry, and people call him, same as Mamoru Hosoda, the next Hayao Miyazaki.

The major works he created up to this time are: "She and Her Cat," "Voices of a Distant Star," "The Place Promised in Our Early Days," "5 Centimeters Per Second," "The Garden of Words," and "Your name." Before 2016, he actually has already got a huge hit with "The Garden of Words," which recorded 30 million yen at the box office just for 3 days that went up to 150 million yen ultimately in spite of its low ticket fee of 1,000yen.

The film captures the ephemeral beauty of adolescence shining like a water surface.
In January "Your Name." became the highest-grossing anime film worldwide with US$281 million earned....over than legendary "Spirited Away" by Hayao Miyazaki!
Try Shinkai's rich world view in variety formats such as novels and comics in addition to DVD & Blu-rays. And, stay tuned for next "Your Name." release!
