Makoto Shinkai's newest animated work “The Garden of Words,” which is seemingly a platonic romance story, is due to hit theaters across Japan on May 31. However, the TV network known as NTV has given a special five-minute presentation which is the first five-minutes of the movie. This is a sample of what is to come on May 31. Also, this movie will be released to North America via Blu-Ray and DVD come August 6. Section23 Films, who has the North American license, will be distributing the movie to the North American market. If you are a fan of Shinkai's works, then you may enjoy watching The Garden of Words.
The Garden of Words focuses on the complicated romance between Takao (a high school student who wants to be a shoe designer) and a fairly older woman named Yukino (who is adrift from the world). They randomly meet each other whenever it is raining; however, those are the usually the only times the end up meeting each other. However, the relationship is uncertain as the rainy season will eventually come to an end.
Like Shinkai's other works, The Garden of Words focuses on subtle romances and lingering feelings.
