Children Who Chase Lost Voices is another movie by Makoto Shinkai and thus I went into it expecting good things. I’m glad to say the movie didn’t disappoint me but then if you’re disappointed by the film or not will depend a lot on the viewer.
5 Centimetres Per Second. What can you really say about a movie which has become somewhat famous since its release, and has been tipped as being one of the greatest anime movies in recent years. Strangely enough, unlike most, I wasn’t introduced to Makoto Shinkai’s work through this movie like most were. I was introduced through Children Who Chase Lost Voices, so for me it was certainly interesting to go back to his best work as the second of his work that I viewed.
Yesterday I posted up a review of No Game, No Life and upon reading the review a close friend of mine asked why I gave it so low a score for its soundtrack. Overall this led us to discussing anime soundtracks and what makes them stand out to each of us. So, figuring this would make a decent topic to talk about I decided to write a short ramble on the subject.
