In this anime masterpiece, Makoto Shinkai brings us the story of two lonely souls who meet under a gazebo in the rain. They are both playing truant from their otherwise average lives; Takao, an aspiring shoemaker and school student, is cutting school, while Yukari should be at work as a student teacher. They shelter together and find themselves bonding, but seemingly their love can never be. However, their brief encounter will not be their last, as gradually their lives begin to intertwine.

Review:

'Shinkai's work is haunted by a melancholy of love that can never be, and people separated by distances, whether they are created by time, physical space, or society...A measured, thoughtful tale spun from the mind of a master storyteller.' - --NEO

About the Author:

Makoto Shinkai is a Japanese film director, animator, and writer. A native of the Nagano prefecture in Japan, he studied Japanese literature at Chuo University. He traces his passion for creation to the manga, anime, and novels he was exposed to while in middle school.

Shinkai developed his abilities as a video game designer for FalCom, where he worked on the cult-classic role-playing game Y"S. Shinkai is unique as an animator as he cut his teeth by producing almost all elements many of his works - from animation to music composition to voice acting. He has won numerous awards: 12th DoGA CG Animation Award; 1st New Tokyo International Animation FestivalGrand Prize; 7th Kobe Animation Prize; 6th Japanese Media Art; Awardfor Digital Media; 34th Nebula Award(World Con); 59th Mainichi Films Animation Prize; 2007 Asia Pacific Film Award; and theLancia Platinum Grand Prize (Italy).
