I just watched the anime “Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below” by Shinkai Makoto last night.
I am a big fans of Shinkai Makoto, and 秒速5センチメートル is one of my favourite anime so far. If you are not familar with Japanese anime, you may think his work is just one of a kind. To me, his anime is quite different, the scenes of his animes are exquisite and the emotion of characters are delicated. I was so moved by the anime 秒速5センチメートル, and love the dialogue in the film.
I truly admire Shinkai Makoto that he tried to make a breakthrough of his work, and no doubt he shows the high standard of Japanese anime to the World again.
The anime talks about lot of deep topics, one of them is loneliness which make the girl and her teacher to start their journey to look for what they lost…Loneliness drive the teacher to look for the ancient state / legend that help his wife reborn and also drive the girl to look for something that can help her to conquer loneliness since she lost her dad when she were a kid.
What intrigued me is one of the ancient gods who swallow the death spirit, and release their lifetime memory into an amazing music. This plot is really beautiful and touch me.
Besides the beautiful anime I enjoyed, I love the music in the film very much.
Though this film is quite different from his old work, i still recommend you to see coz you will be blew away from the stunning scenes.
