So we can all agree that the only ones talking shit about Shinkai and this movie are contrarians, autists, angry Shaftfags and KyoAnuslickers, and typical shitposters who probably haven't even seen this movie, right?

Marvel capeshit and Re Zero earned their popularity through memes, quips for the former and cheap suffering for the latter. Kimi no Na wa earned its popularity through a gripping story and beautiful animation.

My takeaway from it was that Shinkai's been improving in the areas where he's normally been weak. The story, while not anything special, definitely has better execution than what we got in some his earlier works. As for the art-style/animation, it's fantastic as usual. The LSD sequence when Taki drinks the sake was pretty amazing.

That's only if you go see a major Hollywood blockbuster movie on premiere night. This is a limited screening that'll only have a handful of people at the theater, so it's not a viable target for psychopaths.

Good film while a little cliche, people that have a strong dislike of shinkai's work will probably won't enjoy this film.

The movie to me feels like a surreal product, it's very anime-like "structure wise" while trying to be have it's own voice as a serious film. It's like an truly amazing fake of what the story could have been strangely enough. I dunno the movie is an enigma for me. Might have to rewatch it when it's release over in the west or when the BDs drops.

How much did it cost to produce the film? Because Hollywood tells me that a film of 100 million will only break even if makes 400 million, without accounting for Hollywood accounting. With Hollywood accounting, movies like Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Forrest Grump were failures because didn't make profit, according to the studios.

>>
>>147257274
Avatar did well because of revolutionary graphics. Kimi no Na wa did well because it has more than pretty pictures. Years later you'll still be able to quote lines from Kimi no Na wa, but you wouldn't be able to do the same with Avatar.
>>
>>147257559
A meme is something that is popular only because other people like it, not because of its actual merit. Re Zero is popular because its initial audience was turned on by its cheap suffering. They spammed social media to give the illusion of actual popularity, causing a popularity spiral that roped in anime normalfags who only like something because other people like it.

>>
>>147257753
I can still quote lines from the Star Wars prequels, and they are definitely worse films than Kimi no Na wa. Some examples:

>you turned her against me
>my allegiance is to the republic, to democracy
>it's treason then
>unlimited power
>sith lords are our specialty

I wonder how much of that is you actually remembering the lines on your own or if you just see all the memes on /tv/
>>
>>147257566
>>147257753
The ability to quote something can hardly be related to its quality.
>>
>>147257796
One other thing that defines a meme is that the thing that sparks the popularity spiral has to be shallow and vapid. In Re Zero's example, it uses suffering and waifubait to tug at people's strings. Then when normalfags start liking it, they only like it because it's popular, when if it was actual art, they would be able to list why reasons why they like it. For example, if you asked someone why they like Marvel capeshit, they would respond with "the quips were funny" or "CGI explosions." But if you asked someone why they liked Batman vs Superman, they would say they liked it because of the beautiful symbolism that enhances its storytelling and its gripping political commentary.
>>

You want book examples? Harry Potter is an example of a meme. The first book was a well put together children's book, but time went on and the storytelling declined in quality. Nevertheless, its popularity continued and even increased because for many of its readers, the only reason they liked it was that it was popular.

Really that depends on a persons ability to articulate their opinion, you could just as easily say "good story" or "meaningful character arcs", you're strawmanning pretty hard here buddy.

>>
>>147258847
>you could just as easily say "good story" or "meaningful character arcs"

But when they do, and you press them more and ask why they think the story or characters were good, they have no response. They can only say "other people say it's good, and it's popular, therefore it must be good." Same with Re Zero. They can't properly articulate why they think the story is good (mainly because it's not), and if you asked them why Rem is a good character, they can only list waifubait characteristics and how she is defined by the protagonist's dick. A further example of the definition of a meme is the idea that Donald Trump is racist. Donald Trump isn't actually racist, but since the media and their liberal friends say he's racist, the average person thinks he's racist. But once they are asked why they think Donald Trump is racist, they stumble and fall.

My first Shinkai movie was 5cm, then I watched Place Promised in our Early Days, then Garden of Words, now Kimi no Na wa. It's awesome to see Shinkai's evolution.

Haven't yet seen Hoshi no Koe or Children Who Chase Lost Voices though. How do they compare to Shinkai's other works?
>>
>>147259583
false, in the early 70s investigation the government claimed what you did. But Trump's apartments did in fact have black tenants, look it up. What they did discourage was renting to those on welfare. After two years of wrangling the Justice Department and Trump made a deal whereby Trump had to advertise his apartments were open to all races in newspapers for a period of time.

The Justice Department declared a huge victory for the Fair Housing Act.


What a bunch of B.S.
>>
>>147262966
A few scenes that should had more impact felt kinda lackluster to me. And like a lot of people have said already, showing a little bit more of Taki and Mitsuha falling in love with each other would have been great. Movie should have been at least 2 hours.
Also musica was nice and fitting, but kinda missed Tenmon.

I think the relationship stuff was handled well. It's a fairly logical progression to go from "I'm interested in this other person since we're the same age, we know each other intimately due to our shared circumstances, and he/she is pretty cute" to "I want to try giving a relationship with this person I really like and who also likes me in return a shot."
>>
>>147263668
Not the anon you're talking to but just giving my 2cents;
Hoshi no Koe was his flagship for quite a while. Somehow Beyond the Clouds didn't appeal too much for elevens (probably because of the prologue/epilogue mess, I don't know) so it quickly acquired somewhat of a "cult" status.
It's definitely worth watching if you enjoy his style of melodramatic romance. Also if I'm not mistaken a upscale was released few years ago, so it's better than watching the crispy 360p we had to deal with back in those days.
Hoshi wo ou Kodomo, on the other hand, is definitely up there among his weakest projects so far. It tried too hard to be a family friendly movie and the way he pushed morals and values like a mildly-creative Ghibli movie was a disaster.
VA and char. design was cute, but not enough to make up for story.

>inb4 blog shit
It really seemed for me that he was losing his way with the last couple of movies (Hoshi kodomo and Kotonoha), giving up on the sci-fi drama and embracing a more down-on-earth dumb romance. Hopefully this movie here came to bring his good stuff back.

The way the ending fizzles out was unsatisfying. Perhaps Shinkai thought a fairytale ending would be hackneyed, but the buildup deserved it. He builds up Taki and Mitsuha's relationship, only to show the very beginning of their reunion.

>>147266400
Yeah, it was pretty anticlimatic in my opinion, but seems Shinkai likes his endings to be that way. Still loved the movie a lot, would watch it again, and I'm happy a fuck it's doing that well, but I can't say is a 10/10.
>>
>>147254168
Wow, I underestimated just how well this would do.

>>147266505
Shinkai probably loves >muh subtlety and ambiguity, but he doesn't use it well here.

I really wished it ended just like 5cm Difference being once the train finished passing, it would be a scene of them two on opposite sides of the crossing, walking towards each other.
>>
>>147266505
>>147266583
I'm sure it was done not to keep the ending ambiguous so much as out of a desire to keep a sense of suspense until the very last moment while wrapping up the story. While Mitsuha and her town got saved, you don't know if she and Taki are actually going to get together, even when they come face-to-face, because of Shinkai's track record with this sort of thing. It was very effective in that respect.

That shit is like if Ken Levine wrote movies; perfect example of a writer who who doesn't understand time travel logic but uses it in their movies because it sounds like a good idea.
>>
>>147267261
Yeah, it wouldn't be a Shinkai movie otherwise. They never end explicitly perfectly.
>>
So I wanted to watch Shinkai's stuff for a while now but I heard all his movies end in either NTR or some unsatisfying bittersweet bullshit. Is it true?
>>
>>147260100
Hoshi no Koe > Kimi no Nawa
>>
>>147266728
>>147267052

Subtlety is not to be confused with sloppiness. How does the current ending satisfactorily complete the narrative and provide closure?
>>
>>147267474
Generally speaking I'd say so. I wouldn't say unsatisfying but some are bittersweet. They are supposed to capture realistic love and relationships. Sometimes it doesn't work out.
>>
>>147255659
They can't. Hosoda and nowadays Shinkai can because they're big names that can attract people. But imagine any other run of the mill anime director, do you think people will go see his movies? I mean even Kon who was far removed from Otaku pandering had garbage sales.
>>
>>147257426
But Shinkai's last movie had less viewers than Chu2Koi's recap movie. The reason this movie did well was because of the media blitz and the ads plastered literally everywhere in Tokyo.
>>
>>147267474
He doesn't do convenient resolutions if that's what you're after.

>>147266659
That makes me think of Entrapment. Really liked that ending.

>>147267534
This.
>>
>>147267534
I think it was. They met each other. They can talk about how they might know each other and then maybe their memory will spark. For a Shinkai movie this one was probably the most cut and dry.

I still have no clue of what this is about
>>
>>147268212
No because this is a full feature movie while GoW was a 46 minute special. Had GoW been a 2 hour movie and didn't have the old/young controversial relationship but a vanilla one like in Kimi no na wa then yes it would have sold a fuck ton more. Before this started showing in cinemas you couldn't even watch TV for 2 hours without seeing an ad for the movie or a segment about it.

You're forgetting the fact that garden of words set that up for this movie.

Without his previous works the movie would not have had the advertising it needed to be such a success despite having what appears at first to be a very simple and honestly generic premise.

>>147268754
Not him but it's because the director's previous works hit a soft spot with YA audiences by being bittersweet teen romances and scenery porn, and /a/ loves how close they hit to home with themes of unrequited love and loneliness. They also love shitposting and shilling for new anime projects.

At first it was because of the Keit Ai meme. Then it turned out to be genuinely good and became a big hit in Japan.

If you read Lucas's original script for Star Wars it was an absolute mess. It had to go through a fuckton of rewrites through various writers including Lucas's wife before it was even presentable as a script. Lucas didn't write Star Wars.

>>147268417
Given how the entire point of Shinkai's narrative was quite literally the POWER of LOVE defeating continuity itself, it is reasonable to expect a firm ending that wasn't an abbreviated cop-out. Then again, that would have been expecting too much from Shinkai.

>>147268021
And no, I wasn't the anon who suggested that they should forget each other's name but confess to each other. That's just as ludicrous. Even a timeskip like Tamako Love Story would have been better than leaving a cliffhanger/bittersweet ending where there wasn't any reason to do so, unlike 5 cm/s or Garden of Words.

I really hope this gives the sad state of the industry some light and teach them that you can still make something actually good and profit with that. Otaku are literal cancer, obnoxious, and keep killing the medium year after year to the point it will cease to exist someday.
>>
>>147268754
Because of Keit-Ai memeposters and the fact that this movie turned out to be a materpiece, so /a/ naturally has to go into a full blown contrarian shitposting frenzy.
>>
>>147269066
They had so much EU material to base the movie off of, and they chose to rehash A New Hope. Really hammers in how uncreative Hollywood is.

>>147263668
Hoshi no koe was all Shinkai and gf. He animated it himself. Even did the voice acting with his gf. You knew then he had skill and vision. He's been getting better and better with each film. Sure some of them haven't been good but you can tell how he has been learning and evolving. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Kimi did Spirited Away level numbers. Also this film has major level talent backing him.

Reasonable sure, but that doesn't mean it has to end a certain way. If you don't like the ending it doesn't make it shit, it just means you don't like it.

But the industry could survive without relying on selling out to Otaku. Belgian and French animation markets don't rely on anything of the like and they are booming hard right now.

I was talking about movies and I don't know what gets on your side of the Atlantic but there is one that is screening in the US. The red turtle, a French Belgiian Dutch collaboration with Ghibli. It's a silent full feature movie and it rocks. Honestly much better than anything Japan has produced this year bar for Koe no Katachi and maybe Kono Sekai.
>>
>>147269316
>doesn't mean it has to end a certain way

Of course not. I already showed why it was shit: inconsistent with the entire purpose of the narrative, abrupt and entirely formulaic. Wistful bittersweet endings worked for Garden of Words and 5cm/s because of the themes of loss, regret and acceptance. This film had quite the opposite. Ending the film there does a disservice to Mitsuha, Taki and the viewer who is invested at that point.
>>
>>147270752
Either that or the point was that you can live in someone else's shoes and still not know them until you ask about it. Maybe you just missed that when you got angry at the movie for not ending the way you assumed it would.
>>
>>147271275
Fucking this. Also the overwhelming reception from prescreenings at venues like Anime-Expo quantified the hype.
>>
>>147270845
>you can live in someone else's shoes and still not know them until you ask about it

So the time displacement and bodyswaps did not serve any narrative purpose at all?

Pretty much everyone loves it in Japland.
>>
>>147271472
Because I watched everything else that ahd came out already and they don't compare positively to The red turtle. Kono Sekai and KnK have great names working on them and come from well established stories with good themes so that's why they can compare with Ghibli's latest production. Everything else was mindless Japan stuff.
>>
>>147271275

You really have no idea what a meme is, do you?
"memetic" and "popular" are not synonyms.

And Harry Potter never "declined in quality". It merely evolved from a children's series into a young adult series, both of which have a pretty low bar when it comes to literature.

Successful movie doesn't always mean it's good, and while I don't agree with shitposters shitting on it for no reason (although I do understand people disliking some of Shinkai's methods) you discuss nothing when you haven't watched it yourself.
